Last year I fell in love with theÂ Burning LoveÂ web series. In fact I’ll go on the record and say it’s the only web series I’ve ever watched like it was some kind of actual television series. IÂ rememberÂ when I wrote my first review last year, people asked me if Â Burning LoveÂ paid me to write it. That’s how much my recommendation of the show glowed.
In case you accidentally spent last summer watching shows on TV (embarasssinngggg), let me give you the rundown on the show. It’s basically aÂ BachelorÂ parody that mocks the entire concept of the show. And get this, I don’t even watch The Bachelor and I love it. So I can only imagine how much more enjoyable this series is if you hate-watchÂ The Bachelor.
Last year stars popped up everywhere on the show. From Jennifer Aniston to Kristen Bell to Adam Scott to Michael Ian BlackÂ to Ben Stiller, Â theirÂ nonchalantÂ cameos on the show made me feel like I had the exclusive invite to a private improv night in Hollywood. It was amazing and now I hear it’s actually airing on E! a the end of this month.
On one hand, I’m so excited for them. Â On the other hand, I liked that this show was my little secret. You know, so I could sound extra cool at parties as I puffed my Cruella-De-Vil-cigarette and said, “oh I couldn’t be bothered with Top Chef, not whenÂ Burning LoveÂ is on.”
But enough about me and more about season two! This season’s all about dentalÂ hygienistÂ Julie Gristlewhite and her search for true love. Â True love that happens to include contestants Â Michael CeraÂ andÂ Adam Brody.Â Be still my heart-that-still-beats-for-Seth-Cohen.
You can watch the trailer right here, then watch the first season (hopefully again) right here and then set your alarms for the premiere on February 14th. I am SO excited!
