the crown, netflix
The second season of The Crown is, dare I type it, even better than the first. Though the absence of John Lithgow as Winston Churchill is truly felt, the emotional depth still remains, and the story is equally engaging. It takes a lot to cover a roughly ten-year period (1956-1964)...
I've expressed before in a Dark Matter recap how I feel about back patting diversity and how it centralizes whiteness, but I did want to note that I love seeing not only race and gender divergence this season of Killjoys but distinctiveness in bodies as well. I don't think it's...
Welcome Black Lightning, a show that addresses race, family, police brutality, gun violence, drugs and sexuality in our community, written for us, by us, and in our own voices! Unique to The CW's current Superhero lineup, Black Lightning manages to do something that hasn’t been done on this network's genre...
will and grace, jack
You know what, I’m just going to say it — thank God for Will & Grace. The episode starts off with Grace dragging Karen off to work on a Saturday, which Karen is (rightfully, tbh) upset about. She wants to stay in bed and cuddle with Stan and lets...

It’s the real-life version of Game of Thrones, and it’s just as good--if not better. I understand that as a history nerd and a lover of Shakespeare, period dramas, and Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice, my assessment might come across as being bias. I assure you that everything I’m about to write...
I’ve gotta say, if you haven’t been watching Rick and Morty this season you better start changing that, because it has fast evolved to one of the best-written shows on TV, if not THE best. I was a little worried after the second episode of the season though; “Rickmancing...
Steven Universe
If there’s anybody who needs some #2018Affirmations right now, it’s Sadie Miller. That girl needs some changes in her life, and thankfully this episode of Steven Universe finally addresses it. The episode starts off with Sadie exhaustedly manning the fort at the Big Donut. Ever since Lars has been stuck...
Are you looking for a very diverse fantasy series on television with incredible acting and some violence to boot? Well, look no further because American Gods will give you just what you need. Okay, now that that’s out of the way… American Gods is an upcoming fantasy television series created by Bryan...
It is a common refrain that the black experience can’t be broken down into one image. That’s what makes the stereotypes so insulting. The “thug,” “aggressive” Black women are just a few of the things that ignore the nuances of blackness. It also disregards the fact that the people...
