This weekend's Saturday Night Live Christmas episode featured a sketch in which Kate McKinnon appears as Hillary Clinton holding cue-cards a la Love Actually asking (or pleading for dear God) an elector, played by Cecily Strong, not to vote for Trump. The sketch was a warming portrayal of Clinton as concerned citizen attempting to level with the elector as cards read, “BUT I STILL CARE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY," “YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO VOTE FOR ME," "JUST VOTE FOR LITERALLY ANYONE ELSE.” She then presents...

Donald Trump's cabinet picks may seem like the worst possible stories in the news, but Ohio's state legislators are really giving Trump a run for his money. Just weeks after it was announced Texas would require funerals to be held for aborted fetuses, Ohio passed a law making abortion illegal after a heartbeat is detected in a fetus. On Monday, Samantha Bee fleshed out what is being called the strictest abortion law in the nation; especially given that a heartbeat can be detected as early as...

In Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the final four words were revealed, leaving many fans shocked. The fact that Rory, who had relied on making plans and to-do lists throughout much of the series, had accidentally gotten pregnant was, after all, very shocking. While many clues pointing to Rory’s pregnancy have since surfaced, it seems that fans of the show may have missed the most obvious clue of Rory’s pregnancy. Spoiler alert, it has to do with coffee. During the episode “Fall," Christopher Hayden...

If you’ve heard of Mozart In The Jungle, chances are you might have first heard of it not quite a year ago when the Amazon series took home two Golden Globes — big ones. Winning Best Television Series — Comedy and Best Actor In A Television Series — Musical Or Comedy for star Gael Garcia Bernal, the wins sparked explainer headlines like “What Is Golden Globe Winner Mozart In The Jungle All About?” “What Is ‘Mozart In The Jungle’ And Why Did It Win A...

  On last night’s episode of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, Bee again showed off her skills in unpacking an issue with clarity, attention-to-detail and searing wit, evocative of John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight takedowns. Samantha Bee this week turned her attention to “The Big Lie” of widespread illegal voting, which the President-Elect’s fragile ego has continued to push, despite winning the election, to account for losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton. As Bee points out, this “threat” of illegal aliens stealing votes was not invented by...

Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale, is scarily relevant these days. The novel follows Offred, a handmaid in a world in which women have no rights and are used solely for breeding, or in other words, Mike Pence’s vision for America. Even before the election, Atwood admitted in a Guardian interview that the world we are living in now is "close" to the fictional Republic of Gilead, comparing Trump’s campaign to the 17th-century witch hunts. It’s well-timed then, that Hulu’s adaptation of the...

Trevor Noah earned his stripes Wednesday night, when he invited right-wing conservative Tomi Lahren onto The Daily Show and engaged her in a thoughtful interview on Donald Trump, Black Lives Matter, and immigration. As someone who is not known for his superior interviewing skills, the engaging debate is potentially Noah's best work on the show to date. Lahren hosts "Tomi," a political commentary on Glenn Beck's news network The Blaze, and is the so-called voice of millennial conservatives. You might remember her from her rant about Beyonce's...

When my mom recommended I try Gilmore Girls last year, I decided to give it a shot. Almost immediately, I fell in love with the witty banter, the corny theme song, the heaps and heaps of junk food, but most of all: the undeniable affection between Rory and Lorelai.It’s rare to see such a healthy relationship between a teenage daughter and her mother on TV. Most shows nowadays are revolved around teenagers sneaking around and lying to their parents, which makes for good entertainment, sure,...

  I watched the entire new season of Gilmore Girls on Saturday, and to be honest, I’m still processing. A Year In The Life definitely felt like the old Gilmore Girls....but the most frustrating parts of the old Gilmore Girls. Like when Rory stole a yacht or stopped speaking to Lorelai for an entire season. Or when the show implied that Rory was the “good kid” and got into Harvard because she was a virgin, while Paris was the “bad kid” and didn’t get into Harvard...
