    Spoilers for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s November 10th episode (and other episodes). The CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has always referenced lead character Rebecca’s mental health — hey, the word “crazy” is in the title, after all. But as the very first season’s theme song tells us, “The situation’s a lot more nuanced than that.” The show's depiction of mental illness goes way back, though it's often done so subtly that viewers might not remember. We see Rebecca throw away her meds in the season premiere, for example. The show...
    Two weeks ago, the highly anticipated Stranger Things 2 dropped on Netflix, and last month, season 2 of the surging-in-popularity Riverdale began, with teenagers and adults alike binging on these childhood-focused dramas. These two shows aren’t just connected by their popularity or by the shared casting of Shannon Purser as Barb on Stranger Things and as Ethel Muggs on Riverdale. Rather, they are connected through a similar approach to casting their adult characters with actors from the ’80s and ’90s that alters the viewing experience...

  The Deuce. On the hard-to-believe off chance you haven’t heard, it’s the HBO show chronicling the blossoming of the porn business. Everyone loves it. And it takes place in my favorite place in the world: Times Square in the 1970s. I wanted to love The Deuce. I didn't. There is a lot The Deuce gets right about “the Deuce,” as Times Square was known to some in the ‘70s.  But it’s lacking certain essentials. For one, the race-mixing was not that casual. Bars were mostly black, or mostly white....

Chelsey Crisp is a lot smarter and cooler than you know. You probably recognize Crisp from her role as Honey on ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat, the Huangs' loveable, beauty-queen-like neighbor. Honey is Jessica’s best friend, Nicole’s stepmom, and a fan favorite character (because Eddie is cool and all, but anyone that can consistently wear that much neon Spandex deserves recognition).
