Why ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Is the Anti-Woman Series You Need to See Right Now

During these trying times wherein women are often pushed to a corner, we look for media that voice out these plights. HBO’s Big Little Lies did a great job in portraying domestic abuse. But just yesterday, the premiere of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale pushed the envelope and kept people on their toes. The series is an adaptation of Margaret […]

Watch the ‘Broad City’ women celebrate 420 with a truly magical smoke sesh

TwitterFacebook

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. 🎶 

And don’t Broad City characters Abbi and Ilana know it. The known weed fiends and best friends forever eased fan’s between-season withdrawals on Thursday. The show’s IRL creators and stars, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, released a special “Hack into Broad City” Facebook video to mark stoners’ favourite date.

And things got pretty magical. Ilana replaced her diffuser’s essential oils with vape oil and the pair pretend to vape and pass, via Skype, as is their beloved tradition.

Except this time, it actually works! Either that, or they’re so high, they hallucinated a second pipe into existence. Read more…

Jay Pharoah opens up about his ‘SNL’ exit: ‘You go where you’re appreciated’

TwitterFacebook

Former Saturday Night Live star Jay Pharoah hasn’t said much about his unexpected exit from the show since he and Taran Killam were released from their contracts last August … until now. 

The comedian opened up about being dropped from the NBC hit during an interview with Hot 97.

“You go where you’re appreciated,” Pharoah explained. “If you have multiple people on the cast saying things like ‘You’re so talented, and you’re able, and they don’t use you and it’s unfair and it’s making us feel bad because they don’t use you and you’re a talent …’”

Pharoah also expressed frustration with the direction of the show, noting, “They put people into boxes, and whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do.”  Read more…

Louis C.K.’s ‘SNL’ monologue rips white privilege and racist chickens

TwitterFacebook

“Why did the chicken cross the road?”

Obviously, Louis C.K. didn’t deliver the expected punchline when he kicked off his April 8 Saturday Night Live monologue with the lamest joke in human history. Instead, he riffed on racist chickens, judgmental horses, and freaked-out giraffes (sadly, no April reference).

The 10-minute mini-set ends with a story about a recent hotel stay, an encounter with rude housekeeping staff, and an acknowledgment of white privilege. It’s a real journey, and peak Louis. Read more…

What happened to our ‘Grimm’ favorites after the series finale?

TwitterFacebook

Spoiler warning: This interview contains plot details for the series finale of Grimm.

After six seasons and 123 episodes, Grimm came to a close Friday night. As a fan throughout the show’s run, I was sad to see it go, especially since so many other genre shows are wrapping up this season (The Vampire Diaries, Bates Motel, Teen Wolf). But Grimm is going out at the top of its game. The last two seasons have been stellar, with a good mix of standalone stories and mythology episodes. 

For the uninitiated, Grimm follows Nick Burkhardt, a Portland homicide detective. He discovers he is a Grimm, one of a long line of hunters who fights supernatural creatures, known as Wesen, that are eerily reminiscent of fairy tale creatures. But let’s be honest: if you’re reading this, you’re familiar with the show. So let’s talk about that series finale.  Read more…
