The magic of animated shows like Adventure Time is that they always find a way to deal with adult themes. Adventure Time: Distant Lands - Obsidian, an hour-long special based on the Cartoon Network series, definitely falls under the category of smart animated episodes that are easy for audiences of all ages to watch, enjoy, and to rewatch again. The reign of Adventure Time ended in 2018 after almost 8 years, and one of the most satisfying parts of the show was the romance between Marceline...

The Flight Attendant, based on a book by the same name written by Chris Bohjalian, follows an alcoholic stewardess Cassie Bowden, played by Kaley Cuoco, as she attempts to piece together the murder of a man she went to sleep with alive but woke up to dead. It has all the right flavors of a quintessential murder mystery with tense music, cliffhangers, and the occasional light bulb moment. But, the series which premieres the first four episodes on Thanksgiving, feels fresh by centering not only...

Netflix’s newest drama Grand Army is a scary but unfortunately realistic portrayal of being a teenager in America. One of the students at this Brooklyn high school where the show is set is Tor. Portrayed by actress Crystal Nelson, Tor is a confident and loving member of the school’s basketball team. Crystal discussed with BUST how Grand Army is different from other high school dramas and why playing Tor was like looking in the mirror. Can you tell me about Grand Army a little bit? What is...
“As a woman of color, I don’t have the privilege to tap out of the fight,” says the writer-producer-actor, whose many jobs took a back seat to activism this summer. Speaking up is nothing new for Rothwell. “If you’ve followed me prior to this specific uprising, you know my tune has not changed,” says the 39-year-old Kansas native who regularly tweets directly at Donald Trump to tell him he’s “trash.”  Rothwell—who lives in L.A. with her Goldendoodle Lloyd Dobler (named after Say Anything’s main character)—is a producer...
Living through the ages of 11 to 14 can feel a lot like desperately trying to shed the skin of your childhood. Watching Hulu’s “PEN15” will take you right back there, awkwardly attempting to become an adult overnight. You’ll probably see yourself walking right next to the 13-year-old main characters Anna and Maya, played by adult comedians Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine, as they learn what it means to be a ‘slut’ in the eyes of fellow middle schoolers, or viciously whisper fight with their...

Some Trinkets spoilers ahead. Trinkets has all the makings of a stellar teen drama: thoughtful friendships between women, important issues handled with nuance, and flawed, messy love stories that will transport you back to your own adolescence. In the show’s second season, out now on Netflix, the best (and most painstakingly realistic) of these relationships is the romance between Elodie (Brianna Hildebrand), one third of Trinkets’ core trio, and new character Jillian, played by Chloë Levine. In season one, Elodie — a new student struggling with the recent loss of...
