    This post contains spoilers — but come on, you guys, it’s been out for like, a full week. Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for — the long-awaited, synth-driven second season of Netflix’s Stranger Things has arrived! It’s been fifteen long months since we’ve last seen our sweet, spunky kids in action, and to say we missed them is an understatement. Not much has changed in good old Hawkins, but its residents have. With the season one finale’s heart wrenching cliffhangers — from Eleven’s sacrifice to...

  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....
  In the opening episode of Stranger Things 2, we learn there’s a new kid on the block in Hawkins, Indiana. Max is introduced as the girl who can beat the boys’ high score on an arcade game, and has moved to town with her violent stepbrother and absent parents. Sure, there are other characters whose development is a key part of making the second season of this hit show so enjoyable (shoutout to babysitter Steve), but the beauty of Max is that she is both...
  Clea DuVall, best known for her performances as secret service agent Marjorie on Veep and doctor Lara Cruz on Better Call Saul, as well as '90s faves like But I'm A Cheerleader and Girl, Interrupted, has been announced as a key member of The Handmaid's Tale cast in season two. DuVall will play Sylvia, Emily's (Alexis Bledel) wife and co-parent to their son, in Hulu's Emmy-winning drama. As fans already know, when the Gilead regime takes control of America, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) attempts to escape to Canada but faces even...
This week on Broad City, Abbi’s gray hair takes her on a a journey of a lifetime and Ilana comes to terms. When Ilana discovers Abbi’s gray hair: Danielle: Have you ever had a gray hair?Lindsay: Oh, I have a lot.Danielle: I’ve never noticed.Lindsay: I hide it well.Danielle: You do.Lindsay: Would you dye your hair when it started to turn gray? Danielle: I don’t know. It’s definitely ageist. Lindsay: I’d probably change it every color for fun until I get too lazy and let it grow out. Wait....
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). Far from the stereotypical "Hollywood type," Crisp is calm and casual, joking about how much more glamorous Honey is than she herself and self-consciously...
  This week on Broad City, Abbi’s mom comes to visit her in New York City, and the two go to dinner at the sushi restaurant Ilana works. Things get pretty heated pretty quickly, to say the least. Additionally, recapper Lindsay is in Las Vegas seeing Britney Spears, while recapper Danielle is pantless at home, on the couch (per usual). So pretend the following reactions are thoughts happening in Danielle’s head rather than a conversation with Lindsay.   On Ilana’s “happy lamp”: What just happened? Oh, it's one of those...
  Continuing the trend of the cinematic past finding its way back into our hearts as revitalized and revamped versions of its original self, Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It is now a Netflix series, and the trailer was released this past weekend. The feature film that launched Lee’s career was notable for its revolutionary portrayal of black female sexuality. Cherishing her freedom and central character, Nola Darling (DeWanda Wise) juggled three men and experimented with monogamy. The trailer reintroduced us to the 31-year-old storyline with some nuance....
  Amy Sedaris is a living legend. Perhaps you know and love her from her twisted TV-series-turned-feature-film Strangers With Candy. Or maybe you adore her for her off-kilter DIY books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People. Either way, this fall, fans of both her on-screen persona and her loony lifestyle brand will be flocking to her new truTV series, At Home with Amy Sedaris (premiering October 24), a surreal show that looks like what would happen if the...
Amy Sedaris’ new Tru TV series At Home With Amy Sedaris is no doubt going to be a break-out hit this year since no one can stop talking about it! You can also see Sedaris from our newest edition of BUST Magazine, where she explains the proper technique for chopping wood, hiding from bears, and how to build a fire (pro tip: lighter fluid). She’s been all over our TV screens recently, from BoJack Horseman to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – you could recognize her sharp wit...
