  A few weeks ago, I wrote about Mark Ruffalo’s major misstep in creating a movie about trans people without casting or consulting any trans people. The same day I published the post, I got an email — would I like to talk to Silas Howard, Transparent’s first trans director, about the issue? A big fan of Transparent, I of course said yes — and snuck in a few questions about season 3 as well. Please note: This interview happened just before the Emmys, which means...
John Oliver, America’s favorite news presenter, has come up with the perfect analogy for the way ethical failings tarnish a candidate’s reputation — they’re like raisins in a cookie (of course). And Oliver wants to make it very clear that, in the symbolic cookie that is Hillary Clinton’s would-be presidency, there are maybe a few raisins — but the cookie that is Donald Trump’s potential presidency (shudder) is less a cookie than a nightmarish raisin downpour. “This campaign has been dominated by scandals, but it is...

Looking to take a hit at a new show while Broad City is between seasons? MTV’s Mary+Jane may be exactly what you have been craving. Created by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont, who also worked together on 2001’s girl cult classic Josie and The Pussycats, and produced by the one and only Snoop Dogg, this show follows two women in their 20s working to make it big in Los Angeles' legal marijuana industry. The show stars Jessica Rothe as the hesitant and innocent Paige and...

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...
