Tom Hanks played Fox News Channel host Chris Wallace on SNL, moderating a gut-wrenching presidential debate between Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump and Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton — and then played a hilarious Trump supporter on “Black Jeopardy," where he bonded with fellow black contestants over their distrust of government and skinny women. But neither of those skits were Hanks' best performances — that is reserved for David S. Pumpkins. Hanks seems to have never grown out of his ability to make us laugh. Dressed in a...
Resident nasty woman Samantha Bee set the record straight about Donald Trump's absurd abortion comments. During Full Frontal on Monday, Bee ripped into the claims about "partial birth abortions" made during the third presidential debate. "Partial birth abortions aren't a thing," Bee literally yelled into a megaphone to get her point across. "It’s a non-medical term the National Right to Life committee made up in the ’90s for a procedure that was outlawed in 2003 by the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act." via Giphy Moderator Chris Wallace asked...
  There’s a new Gilmore Girls trailer, and there’s a lot packed into the two minutes and 26 seconds. Rory is Jack Kerouac-ing, Lorelai is bantering with Luke, Emily Gilmore is Kon Mari-ing, Paris is rolling her eyes, Lane is drumming, Suki is spilling icing in a pornographic way, and Jess, Dean and Logan all make appearances. But what I noticed most is that one thing about the Gilmores hasn’t changed — the trailer shows the Gilmore girls eating or mentioning SO MUCH JUNK FOOD. Here’s a list: Chinese takeout Greek...
President Obama is soon to be out of a job, no matter how much we want him to stay. So, like any good future employee who's entering the job market, Obama spent some time updating his resume on The Late Show on Monday, with the help of Randy the office manager (AKA master of disguise Stephen Colbert wearing a fake mustache). "Fifty-five, tough time to start over for a man," Randy said, before giving Obama tips on how to appeal to employers. Previous resume points like,...
Comedy Central series Drunk History recently released an episode about the Stonewall Riots, one of the defining moments in the LGBT movement in the United States. The segment, commentated by the great Crissle West, is hilarious and informative, but what we're really loving about it is that it actually used transgender actresses to tell transgender women's stories (unlike some media). Alexandra Grey and Trace Lysette star as Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera respectively, two of the primary transgender women who led the fight against police...
SyFy is more than Sharknado. For years, the station has been home to many great American and international science-fiction/fantasy programs: Z-Nation, 12 Monkeys, The Expanse, and itss most recent huge hit, The Magicians. And, among their programming have been excellent female led-queer speculative dramas that have slowly been changing the landscape where women, and especially queer women, can operate in these types of shows. The biggest two are Lost Girl and Syfy's most recent addition, Wynonna Earp. Lost GirlCreated by Michelle Lovretta and developed by Jay Firestone,...

The closest I came to noticing how repressed I was in my teens was the way one particular Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) character appealed to me. The connection I felt to a certain android made him my favorite long before I called myself a Trekker, but even though the Freudian symmetry there speaks for itself, there was no way I could have connected our frustrations. There was too much empty space in me for the synapses to fire between my search for the...
For the past two years, the web series Carmilla, which airs on YouTube under KindaTV, has been an oasis of hope and progressive queer representation. A modern reimagining of the Sheridan Le Fanu's novella, Carmilla tells the story of Laura Hollis, a journalist student at Silas University, who begins investigating the disappearance of her roommate and slowly becomes entangled in the supernatural underbelly of the school. Including an evil Dean, gods, portals to hell, and a certain lesbian vampire named Carmilla who emotionally complicates everything,...
“Oh yeah, I’m ‘going in this like a bitch.’” Samantha Bee, reigning queen of political commentary, declared last night, paraphrasing a portion of Trump’s notorious leaked Access Hollywood tapes. Bee, never the type to shy away from the tough topics, tackled this latest example of Donald Trump’s awfulness. “Taking a Tic Tac and grabbing them by the pussy is the closest thing to a plan Donald Trump has described this entire election,” Bee snaps, explaining that Trump's words are an explicit description of sexual assault,...
If you’re not already familiar with Jesse Watters, he’s a part of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News and hosts a segment on the show called Watters World. While The O'Reilly Factor presents this segment as an informative look at diversity within the United States, it happens to perpetuate harmful stereotypes about people of color, women, and PC culture, by manipulating interviews to make individuals appear unintelligent and misinformed about world issues. Watters is basically the 40-year-old equivalent of the guy who never leaves his fraternity,...
