Article: “THE HONORABLE WOMAN” Recap: Episode 8 (The Paring Knife)

Sir Hugh shares his theories with Dame Julia, suggesting that Samir Meshal was a go-between for the US and the Palestinians. Hugh proposes that when Meshal called a Palestinian contact to confirm the Secretary of State’s agreement to an unknown plan, he inadvertently alerted the Israelis to the plan’s existence via the wiretap on Shlomo’s cables. Since the CIA was piggybacking on the Israeli tap, Hugh theorizes, they were able to take out Meshal before the Israelis could abduct and interrogate him. Dame Julia suggests that the Secretary of State might have been agreeing to Nessa’s assassination, but Hugh expresses doubt, guessing that Monica Chatwin independently arranged the attack on Nessa to curry favor with the CIA, ultimately gunning for Julia’s job.

Top Ten Reasons “Secretary” Beats “50 Shades of Grey”

Article: Top Ten Reasons “Secretary” Beats “50 Shades of Grey”

You’ve got to give the Fifty Shades of Grey books credit. The erotic trilogy by E.L. James has single-handedly made BDSM mainstream (now everyone knows what a safe word is), been a boon to the sex toy industry (hello, love beads!), and improved the sex lives of many a long-married couple (a chapter a day will keep the couple’s therapist away!). But that doesn’t mean the series is without its faults, or that there aren’t better depictions of BDSM relationships in popular culture or at the very least, one better depiction.

Summer may not officially end until later in September, but come on: Labor Day has passed, and summer is over.

But that doesn’t mean the series is without its faults, or that there aren’t better depictions of BDSM relationships in popular culture — or at the very least, one better depiction. The 2002 indie film SECRETARY, a Sundance favorite, blows Fifty out of the water, if you ask us. Here’s why.

Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) go from Phoenix to Madison to Montreal to Miami to visit one wacky friend after another, from comically slutty Allison Janney to comically new age-y Maggie Gyllenhaal.
