Warning: this article contains Wandavision spoilers. By now, we've all heard of the hit Disney+ show Wandavision. The show revolves around Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) as the main protagonist and Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) as Wanda’s neighbor-turned antagonist. (Grief, of course, is the main antagonist.) Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) play supporting characters. Watching this show will take you on an emotional journey: Wanda, Monica, and Agatha experience loss of loved ones, but throughout the series, we're able to see them grow stronger and...
Greta — Haley Sanchez’s character on HBO Max’s Generation — might be the most realistic teenager on television. She’s close with (and perpetually annoyed by) her cool aunt, Ana (Nava Mau), and has a complicated relationship with her mother, who has recently been detained by ICE. She’s awkward around the girl she likes, perpetually confused about whether or not their burgeoning friendship has romantic undertones. “When I read the script, I was like, ‘I know this person,’” 24-year-old Sanchez tells BUST. “This person exists out...
Some of Saturday Night Live’s “Cut for Time” sketches are as noteworthy, if not more so, than the ones that make it to air (here’s looking at you, Kyle “Cut for Time” Mooney). On February 6, 2021, Schitt’s Creek co-creator and star Dan Levy hosted the show, and appeared in clever sketches such as a horny Zillow ad and a realistic “It Gets Better” campaign. But one of the most clever of all, “Men’s Cosmetics,” was cut from the live show due to time constraints...
The City That Never Sleeps. The Big Apple. Gotham. The Center of the Universe. The City So Nice They Named It Twice. I’m sure writer and public personality Fran Lebowitz would gag hearing any of these nicknames for New York City, America’s most iconic metropolis. Pretend It’s a City on Netflix toes the dangerous precipice of New York City’s most irritating cliches, but Lebowitz’s grounded, derisive storytelling and director Martin Scorsese’s sensatory cinematography keep the show from ever falling into a void of cornball mawkishness. Claiming...
Excellent news for YA and literary nerds everywhere: the first images for Shadow and Bone, Netflix's upcoming adaptation of Leigh Bardugo's acclaimed YA novel, were released this week. The new photos come on the heels of the teaser trailer Netflix released in December.  The show is set to premiere on April 23. I'm not sure if these images will hold over my excitement until April, but it will have to do for now. Because let me tell you: the story of Shadow and Bone is extra juicy. "Shadow and Bone takes...
During our Zoom interview, actor Jessica Marie Garcia tells me she wants to read me something from comedian Nicole Byer’s book, but she can’t stand up to get it because she’s not wearing pants. When she admits this, I laugh, not only because it’s funny, but also because she sounds just like her character Jasmine Flores on the hit Netflix show On My Block, who once famously declared she doesn’t show her “chonies” (Spanish for underwear) “to no phonies.” On the show, Garcia personifies teen angst,...
“No one thinks they’re signing up for a cult,” says Mark Vicente in the final episode of HBO’s The Vow. It’s an interesting statement, seeing as Vicente just spent the better part of a decade essentially acting as a propagandist for a cult leader. No one thinks they’re signing up for a cult is the echoing refrain throughout The Vow, the HBO documentary series chronicling the rise and fall of the sex trafficking cult NXIVM through the eyes of former members who then became dedicated to dismantling the organization....
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...
We’re excited for the reboot of 90's sitcom Saved by the Bell, and we're especially happy to speak with actress Haskiri Velazquez who plays Daisy, a Latina high school student whose school gets shut down and has to transition to life at Bayside High. Velazquez is an incredible actress who also recently starred in the critically acclaimed 40-Year-Old Version film by Radha Black. She talked to BUST Magazine about her role in Saved by the Bell, acting in comedies and her aspirations as an actress in...
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...
