One could, if one wanted, say I'm using the word "Scandinavian" creatively. Expansively. One might even say "inaccurately." Oh yes, there are some Germans and Netherlanders on this list. But try not to get too upset, you Swedes, Finns and Danes. I accept all of you as my icey-eyed, blonde overlords. There's definitely been an upswing in muddy vowel sounds and stoic, Northern European good looks on our TV sets recently. And I'm all for it. So put on your shades, folks, because it's about to get very, blindingly white in here.

Pajiba Love Express
Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
