When quotes from an interview with Friends cast member David Schwimmer went viral, many people felt he missed the mark by not taking into account one of the most influential all-Black casted sitcoms of the '90s: Living Single. Often times in the Black community, we refer to Friends as the white Living Single, considering the show premiered a year before Friends and could actually be considered the template for which the internationally syndicated show was founded on. While Schwimmer meant well and gave examples of how he...
Most know Camille Saroyan, the head of the Jeffersonian Institute’s Forensic Division in the FOX hit TV show Bones, but not as many know the actress who played her: Tamara Taylor.  Since Bones ended in 2017, the 49-year-old Canadian actress has gone on to play parts in a number of movies and TV shows. But her latest role in the new Netflix series October Faction, which she describes as "like Mr. and Mrs. Smith meets Buffy the Vamipre Slayer," is probably the one she is most excited about. “It’s funny because...
The buildup to Freeform’s newest season of Grown-ish kicked off with something of a bang. Promotions for season three tipped viewers off that there would be a baby on board. Fans took to social media speculating that perhaps it was the show’s main character Zoey (Yara Shahidi) who would be expecting, or maybe religious pro-lifer Ana (Francia Raisa). Theories in the comments sections sprang steadily, with some speculating that maybe it would be Nomi (Emily Arlook) becoming a surrogate for someone. As episode one of the...
Warning: This story contains description of sexual assault and harassment. Sex Education: It’s the Netflix Original that completely reimagined teen television as we know it. It's kind of like if every John Hughes movie, Charlie Bartlett and Skins had a baby, but written by a woman and with themes that are actually important to the 21st century. Not to mention, it’s the very definition of binge-worthy, feel-good television. Why, those who haven’t had the privilege of watching this masterpiece might ask? Well, because it’s the first...
  via GIPHY Seat belts everyone! Many memes are dedicated to the ecstacy we felt in school when our teacher wheeled in this: Courtesy of Michael Coghlan via Flickr Ohh that was exciting. It offered us students a change of pace from the usual routine and it gave our teacher a much-needed break. A win-win. We didn’t care what the subject matter was, just as long as it came in the form of a VHS. That is until, one of those tapes happened to be The Magic School Bus....

  On Monday, the legendary Alicia Keys took over The Late Late Show as a guest host filling in for James Corden, and did so with the help of some powerhouse women by her side. The Grammy award winner opened the episode with a monologue dedicated to the ladies. Keys declared the show as the first all-women episode of the late night talk show, with all-women guests, and an all-women audience to back them up. Rather than open with a depressing rundown of all the current events...
  If you haven't watched She-Ra and the Princesses of Power yet, you truly are missing out. The ’80s cartoon reboot may seem like a fun, rainbow pastel adventure, but do not be deceived – She-Rais a space epic. And season four came in, kicked down the door, and showed us how epic this show could be.  If season three was about the hero’s journey, then season four is about growth, power, and destiny. It poses the question: at what cost would you embrace your future/destiny? While the titular character...
Two weeks ago, Saturday Night Live’s host was Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who gave a monologue that was an amazing one: because it put women, and our experiences and desires, front and center. Waller-Bridge is an English writer, comedian, and actress. And now, Waller–Bridge is also an Emmy Award winner, having won 3 out of 4 Emmy Awards she was nominated for this past September for both writing and starring in Fleabag. Waller-Bridge expressed in her opening monologue a righteous feminist attitude towards her Emmy wins that captured the importance...
Last week, Ellen DeGeneres was shown at a Cowboys football game laughing with former President George W. Bush and to her surprise, got tons of criticism for it. Soon after, she brought up the video on her talk show and said that it was important to “be kind to one another”—as she says at the end of every show—and not only “the people that think the same way you do.” Since that show aired, DeGeneres has been receiving almost as much praise as criticism. Some...
