Beekman boys Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell (courtesy Planet Green)

Topher had a chance to connect with the fabulous Beekman boys (from The Fabulous Beekman Boys) before their show’s premiere last year. Thanks in no small part to TNG’s coverage, the first season was well received, and Planet Green eagerly gave the ok for a second. The new season kicked off last week, and picks up right where season one concludes. The gentleman farmers themselves, Josh and Brent, took a little time to connect with Topher on what’s new in season two.

Mantracker and his sidekick are gonna getcha! (courtesy The Science Channel)

Instead of drawing inspiration from Bang Bus, The Science Channel’s Mantracker more closely resembles “The Most Dangerous Game.” Basically, the Mantracker hunts contestants on the show for sport. The contestants are on foot, and take off into the wilderness armed with a map, a compass, and a head start. Their goal is to make it to a predetermined destination before Mantracker can pick up their trail, stalk them silently, and brutally slay them.

Some people help their friends move by having packing parties, by donating boxes they have laying around the house, or by lending their truck for the day.

Hookers: Saved on the Strip is everything good we’ve come to expect from an “educational”-type reality show. Premiering on Investigation Discovery this Wednesday the 8th, the show is like a female version of Dog The Bounty Hunter, introducing us to a seedier side of America courtesy of someone who knows it inside and out.

“Violent, alcoholic, and practiced in psychological terror, Joan did not seem to be a natural mother.”

The narrator of Investigation Discovery’s new show The Will: Family Secrets Revealed does not pull any punches. Harsh, but we all knew that about Joan Crawford already, didn’t we? In a genre of television I hate to love, this docu-drama program paws over interesting estates and controversial final testaments of the deceased, and for its premier episode turns its sights on one of the most popular actresses of all time.
