Since the rise of civilization, empires of man have always forced innocent people to be displaced. There are many names we give those seeking a new home after displacements. Refugee, asylee: but no matter what status they may be provided, they are all immigrants.  Immigration is a topic that has been making headlines across the world, and it’s also one of the primary themes in Amazon Prime’s newest fantasy series Carnival Row, staring Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Tamzin Merchant, David Gyasi, Karla Crome, Andrew Gower, Arty Froushan,...
  Netflix recently dropped the third season of GLOW. Created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, the loosely based on a true story series, follows the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, a group of former actors, models, dancers, stuntwomen, and an ex-soap-star who started their own professional wrestling promotion in 1985. Starring Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Marc Maron, and Britney Young—among other talents—the comedy series brings us into the middle of the ring and behind the scenes. It explores the lives of the women who became underground...
  Derry Girls, Lisa McGee’s award-winning TV show about four teenage girls living in Derry (“or Londonderry, depending on your persuasion”) is back! Just like sophomore albums in music, second seasons of TV shows usually are not as good as season one – but not this time. The girls are better, bolder, and hopefully coming back for season three. The dramatic narrator Erin, her quirky cousin Orla, her high-strung best friend Clare, up-to-no-good Michelle, and James, the eternal butt of his friends’ jokes, still balance the...
In order to be a good detective, one must ask questions, be curious, and have a dogged determination to find answers. For the past 90 years, Nancy Drew has essentially been using the scientific method in order to discover the mysteries in her town and now, for the first time ever, she will be brought to the silver screen.  Audiences were thrilled to see this new adaptation during an exclusive preview at this year’s San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). After the screening, showrunners Noga Landau, Melinda...
Monica Lewinsky is having a week, to say the least. Besides driving the internet crazy with the best tweet of the entire Trump Administration, Lewinsky is making big news with her newly found role as a producer. And after 20 goddamn years of other people telling her story, Lewinsky is taking back control of what’s rightfully hers. Set to premiere September 2020, the third installment of the FX series American Crime Story will focus on the 1998 and 1999 impeachment trials (and hopefully give this history...
  ABC just announced that they have cast Auli’i Cravalho, the breakout Moana star, as Princess Ariel in a new live production of The Little Mermaid. Cravalho’s voice acting and singing stole the spotlight in the 2016 instant classic—now she’ll showcase her talents on stage. At 18, Cravalho has already established herself as a versatile actor.

The Wonderful World of Disney...
When I meet up with Barbie Ferreira in Brooklyn, she’s right at the end of a busy New York press trip. “It’s a whole new life for me,” she says. But it’s one she loves. Ferreira stars on Euphoria, HBO’s latest and grittiest hit show about an ensemble of teenagers navigating relationships, addiction, the Internet, and self-image. The show’s first season has brought us unmatched eye makeup looks, a terrifying glimpse into what Gen-Z teens are really up to, and an animated sex scene between two former members...
There have been many versions of the hero’s journey, but rarely has that journey been given to women in our stories—until now. We have Rey from Star Wars, but the true hero kicking down all the hero’s journey troupes is She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Ever since the beginning of season one, the classic reboot of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, written and produced by Noelle Stevenson, has been all about exploring the heroics and growth of the titular character and her friends. Seasons one and two...
  HBO teen drama Euphoria is groundbreaking—featuring approximately 30 penises in the second episode alone. Starring Zendaya, who plays a fresh-from-rehab drug addict named Rue, the show is an unflinching homage to the harsh realities of life in high school and beyond. With raunchy and sometimes devastating scenes of wild partying, drug abuse, and mental illness familiar from shows like Skins, Euphoria ups the ante with a distinctly Gen Z flair. Nudes, dating apps, fentanyl, cam girls, knowledge and exploitation of child pornography laws—in short, a...

Right now, everyone’s obsessed with Pose, which got me wondering about the zodiac signs of our most beloved TV characters. That’s why I took a deep dive into their personalities to think about how the stars in the sky aligned when our favorite voguers were born. Aries Ricky Wintour uses his determination to elevate his career throughout Pose. His passionate resolve to work hard and become a member of the House of Evangelista made him a diehard Aries.  Taurus Veronica Ferocity works in a clothing store and the dance floor of the balls...
