    Good Girls Revolt, the Amazon Original series about female journalists based on a true story, will sadly not be returning for a second season. News of this first broke in December when the head of Amazon Video, Roy Price, decided to axe the show— without any women present in the room. He personally didn’t like or even watch the show. Since Amazon decided not to renew the show, Sony began shopping the series elsewhere, to no avail. “Good Girls Revolt won't be airing on another network. We made...

  It seems like once again, television has surpassed our draconian politics in its progressive projecting plotlines. The research group Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health, in collaboration with UC San Francisco, has conducted a study of the frequency and manner in which abortion, or the topic of abortion, has been portrayed on screen in 2016 and the results are hopeful — though our current political reality is not. The group notes that, on TV< there was a “slight increase in choosing abortion over the past decades,...
Samantha Bee’s political satire show Full Frontal With Samantha Bee has been known to cover an array of topics that are only glanced over by prime-time news networks, but a recent report from Media Matters made it clear that no one covers abortion like Samantha Bee. The organization found that within the first 11 months of 2016, Full Frontal covered abortion twice as much as the three other nightly news networks, even though her show is only broadcast weekly.Responding with the wit we love, Samantha Bee tweeted...
The much anticipated Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale has released its first official trailer and we cannot stop watching it. The Hulu series is an adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel The Handmaid’s Tale. We have written about the novel and the upcoming series before and (even though it hasn’t come out yet) are huge fans. The novel and series deals with a dystopian view of what a society would look like if women’s rights were all but completely stripped and worse, used simply as...
Even if you didn’t watch the Golden Globes last night, stories and photos from the awards ceremony are probably dominating your newsfeed right now. And with all the headlines, it can be hard to dig out the important (Meryl Streep criticized Donald Trump in a speech and he, of course, sent out an early-morning tweetstorm about it) from the unimportant (Kendall and Kylie ate pizza at an afterparty). We’ve rounded up the things that we at BUST HQ are talking about the most. Tell us...
We were already incredibly excited for Hulu’s upcoming miniseries adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s all-too-relevant dystopian classic The Handmaid’s Tale. In the 1985 sci-fi novel, a totalitarian government forces women to live in strict roles. Most women are upper-class Wives and Daughters, or lower-class Handmaidens, who have to bear children for the Wives. (There are also Aunts, who train Handmaidens, and Marthas, who are servants.) In the Hulu adaptation, Mad Men actress Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred, with Orange Is The New Black favorite Samira Wiley as in...
 Samantha Bee, "shrill left-wing feminist," and Glenn Beck, the conservative commentator who once called Obama a racist, reside on very different sides of a divided political landscape. But on last night’s episode of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, the festively-dressed pair sat down to acknowledge their common ground because, in the words of Bee, “I think that our future is going to require a broad coalition of nonpartisan decency. It's not just individual people against Donald Trump, it's all of us against Trumpism." Beck has been showing...

This year sure has had its downsides — much-loved stars, like Prince and David Bowie, left us too soon; an old favorite meme, Pepe the Frog, was stolen and repurposed by white supremacists; and, well, you know the rest. One upside to 2016? The Netflix original series Stranger Things was released July 15. The show takes place in 1983 and stars a band of talented and adorable child actors, and it’s clear the creators were influenced by the masters of dark childhood adventures, Stephen King...
