  Ah, the ‘90s. What a magical time for children’s television, back when leaving the kids alone for hours on end in front of the TV was completely acceptable, and anthropomorphic aardvarks were everybody’s favourite animal. This week, the current trend of endless reboots and sequels has struck us right in the feels once again, with the trailer for Netflix’s The Magic School Bus Rides Again released on Twitter to mixed emotions. The original Ms. Frizzle, voiced by Lily Tomlin, apparently has a hip younger sister, who...
  I sat down with Emmett J. Lundberg, the creator and protagonist of Brothers, a web series following the lives of four trans men, and his producer Sheyam Ghieth, to talk about the process and the effect of creating the first show centered around trans men. Emmett and Sheyam launched the pilot in June of 2014 on YouTube. A year later, Amazon offered to distribute the series on their site. It has been a success thus far and they are currently raising funds in order to get...
The Twin Peaks revival has been everything dreamt of... and then some. Sure, some of the episodes barely resembled the original show and took place hundreds of miles from Washington state, but they’ve been equal parts incredibly weird and engaging, with gorgeous cinematography, giddy cameos and new players (shout out to Laura Dern and her portrayal of kween Diane), and a winding plot that was so David Lynch, we’re surprised it didn’t implode unto itself. And now that the finale upon us, we’re a bit bummed....

  As a straightish, cisgender female navigating an open relationship for over ten years, I find it rare when a piece of media portrays plural love in a way that’s not the butt of a joke. So imagine my surprise when a 30-minute dramedy called (yes, literally) I Love Dick helped clarify some concepts I’d long considered, but never quite articulated, about my own nontraditional, not-entirely-monogamous relationship. The Amazon show (created by Jill Soloway and based on the cult feminist novel of the late ‘90s of the...
“All good nights begin with karaoke and they also end with karaoke.” - Jimmy Fallon We already loved actress and comedian Bridget Everett, but now we love her even more after she kept it real and fun on NBC's The Tonight Show earlier this week. She appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk show for the first time on August 1, and talked about her career – first starting in karaoke and then moving up to the cabaret/alt-comedy scene of New York City. She also elaborated on her life...
Freeform’s new show The Bold Type is like Sex and the City meets The Devil Wears Prada, but in the best way possible. It stars three young women living in New York City and working for Scarlet magazine (a magazine loosely based on Cosmopolitan). Under the control of editor-in-chief Jacqueline (Melora Hardin), Scarlet is rebranding itself as a feminist publication, as opposed to just a sex and fashion magazine. The show focuses on three main characters, Jane (Katie Stevens), Kat (Aisha Dee), and Sutton (Meghann Fahy),...
Three in 10 women will have an abortion by age 45, so there's a good chance you either know someone that’s had one, or you’ve had one yourself. Despite its commonality, abortion is still a controversial topic, and the current administration has further escalated the debate over women’s reproductive rights — for example, Trump's suggestion that women who have abortions should be punished (which he later took back), and Pence's pledge to overturn Roe V. Wade. One of the ways that a society’s view of abortion...
Last night on Full Frontal, our favorite White House critic, Samantha Bee, went after Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity who met for the second time yesterday. The mission of this committee is to investigate the 3 million illegal voters that Trump claimed caused him to lose the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Despite no evidence to support that this claim, Donald J. Trump just refuses to let this shit go. Samantha Bee cracked, “Those mythical three million illegal voters are...

  This week, the internet barfed with excitement at the news that Mindy Project mastermind and star Mindy Kaling is pregnant with her first child. Naturally, the entertainment world is salivating over the fact that Kaling is single and is not revealing who her child's father is. But here at BUST HQ, we're just happy for her, wishing her well, and enjoying imagining what a great mom she'll be — with or without a co-parent. The news also inspired us to revisit this cover story we did with...
