Full Frontal host and former Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee has been using her time on hiatus to answer fans’ questions in a segment on her YouTube channel called "Letters to Sam." The fourth installment in this series had Samantha answering the most important question you could ask a satirical political news host: “If you had to be stuck on an island with any of the past or present Republican candidates who would you choose?” Her answer? Ted Cruz. Why? “Our zesty sparring would keep us alive for longer.” This...
So, by now you’re also obsessed with the Netflix Original Series Stranger Things. Stranger Things is wildly popular with Gen X & Y due to its heavy dose of '80s movie nostalgia. It’s Goonies, ET, Stand by Me, and IT all wrapped into one glorious eight-episode series.  A key element of joy in Stranger Things is the delightful awkwardness of its child actors. Nancy is adorably delicate. Dustin boasts endearing cleidocranial dysplasia. Props to the Duffer bros for hiring non-supermodel-y, real kids. (However, although set in suburban Indiana, the racial diversity is significantly lacking.) And...
ATTENTION all Stranger Things fans: This morning, Netflix announced that the show has officially been renewed for season 2 — not exactly surprising, but very exciting nonetheless!!! EVEN BETTER — there’s already a trailer:   We have no idea what most of these flashwords mean, but it sounds like there’s already a plot plotted out. We just need to be reassured that Eleven will be returning, Eggos in hand.   According to Variety, season two will be released sometime in 2017 and will consist of nine episodes — one more than...
The Bachelor is a reality staple show that seems to become more popular by the season. The show reaches a variety of demographics, and is incredibly addictive, like television nicotine.  Last week, mom and blogger Constance Hall posted a photo on Facebook of her 7-year-old daughter, Billie-Violet, who had asked if she could watch The Bachelor. Constance said no for a very interesting reason.  Constance explained how as a child, her daughter's life is full of competition. From who's the best in class to who's the fast to who's...

Actress and singer Bella Thorne, best known from the Disney Channel show Shake It Up and MTV's Scream, officially came out on Twitter after speculation from several Snapchat posts.  After a fan asked her, she replied with a simple yes. Since then, many fans have shipped her and the girl popping up in so many of her adorable Snapchats, Bella Pendergast. We must admit, the idea of Bella squared gives us all sorts of happy feels.   She even posted this sweet message on Instagram for Pendergast's birthday. Thorne has received a ton of...
On Last Week Tonight, Oliver dropped a simple solution for Mr. Donald Trump: Drop out. Beyond the obvious fact that this means we would definitely not have “a racist voodoo doll made of discarded cat hair” (thank you, John Oliver, for that little gem) as our president, Oliver says this is the best way for Trump to make himself an actual legend instead of America's punchline.  “It seems that you have two really bad options here," says Oliver. "If you keep going, you’re going to spend the next...
Who lives, who dies, who tells your story... *Phillipa Soo voice* Aubrey Pla-zaaa That’s right: Aubrey Plaza and Alia Shawkat are starring in a new version of Hamilton. And they’re not playing Angelica and Eliza Schuyler — they’re playing Hamilton and Burr. We’ll hold for your screams. Hamilton fans may already be aware that earlier this summer, Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda announced that he’d be hosting an episode of Comedy Central’s Drunk History. If you’ve never seen Drunk History before, please remedy that now: Each episode...
As a queer individual, the search for quality TV shows or movies that honestly and accurately represent queer romance often feels like a never-ending and fruitless endeavor. Not surprisingly, the search is especially difficult if one is seeking a realistic representation of the trans experience. Yes, thankfully shows like Transparent exist — I adore Transparent and am currently re-watching the entire series for the fifth time — but it’s no secret that the leading transgender character in the show is played by a cis-gendered man,...
If Barb Holland isn’t your favorite character on Stranger Things, you’re wrong. Now, she even has a “sensitive rap tribute” about her. If only we could all be so lucky…YouTube comedy channel Dr. Chorizo Productions posted the tribute to our queen, titled “R.I.P. Barb.”   The song begins by laying out the storyline of the Netflix series—“Joyce is freaking out / trying to find her son / 11’s in the restaurant / stealing fries like a bum”—before turning to Barb —“I only got eyes for one chick...
Showing that tweeting really can get you somewhere, Leslie Jones is being sent to Rio by NBC after live-tweeting the first few days of the Olympics in a hilarious way only she can accomplish. Needless to say, Leslie would be a mjaor step up from some of the NBC commentators — like Dan Hicks, who credited Hungarian swimmer Katinka Hosszu’s husband, Shane Tusup, for her record-breaking win in the 400-meter individual medley this past Saturday, saying “And there’s the man responsible,” when the cameras panned to Tusup. And then...
