screenshot via Youtube Samantha Bee, our queen of biting political criticism, refused to let Donald Trump and NBC off the hook in her newest episode of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee last night. As Election Day draws closer, we keep asking ourselves "how the fuck did we end up with such a terrible presidential candidate like Donald Trump?" Samantha Bee had a great answer: blame the media’s excessive coverage of Trump’s campaign for normalizing racist rhetoric in a quest for ratings. The cable network put on blast this week...

Other than her amazing coffee-drinking, snow-loving, Dragonfly Inn-running mother, there has been only one constant in Rory Gilmore’s life: Paris Geller. From Chilton to Yale, Paris has always been there. The best thing about her? She is relatable. Like that time she said, “so I ate a family size bag of salt and vinegar potato chips and went to bed at 7:30pm.” Or when she got to a party late because she “had to stop and eat first in case the food here sucked.” Rory should...
Samantha Bee is back...and just in time to weigh in on Hillary Clinton's bumpy election weekend. Bee hilariously cuts into every recent election mishap in her new episode of Full Frontal. Her responses provide the much-needed relief from this trainwreck of an election. “Let’s get right to the big news, Hillary Clinton has passed away,” Bee jokes. “She says she’s not dead but as we know she is a liar." Surely, there is no way a weak and decrepit women could ever run a nation! Her...
We’ve got quite a few Gilmore Girls fanatics here in the BUST office, and, like so many of you, we’re eagerly awaiting the upcoming reboot. And many of the reasons we love Gilmore Girls have to do with feminism — although the show has its flaws (remember when the show implied that Paris didn’t get into Harvard because she had sex?), it passes the Bechdel test with flying colors and features complex, three-dimensional female characters. Lauren Graham, aka Lorelai Gilmore, voiced the same opinion in a...
Heathers, the cult classic that armed us with brilliant lines like “what’s your damage?” and “fuck me gently with a chainsaw," is being remade into a new anthology series for TV Land.  The dark comedy, which first premiered in 1988, was originally directed by Michael Lehman and starred Winona Ryder as Veronica, a girl navigating the very fucked up world of high school popularity with her cruel friend group, The Heathers. Enter baby-faced Christian Slater as maniacal bad boy J.D., and you’ve got a hilariously morbid...

Just two months ago, former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit against Roger Ailes, her former boss, after he intentionally sabotaged her career for refusing his sexual advances. Almost immediately after this story broke, a Pandora’s box of allegations opened up as other Fox News women, including Megyn Kelly, came forward with their own stories of sexual harassment at the hands of Ailes, including his on-going pattern of offering promotions in exchange for sexual favors, firing those who would not comply and the many measures...
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...
