10 Times Michelle Tanner Was All Of Us

10 Times That Michelle Tanner Was All Of Us.jpg

By Kate Kole

I have no shame in admitting my love for Full House. And I don’t just mean that I enjoyed watching it as a kid. I’m as happy to hang out with the Tanneritos today as I was 20 years ago. Like any true fan, I’ve also seen every episode of Fuller House and may or may not be cueing up Netflix for the Season 3 premiere tomorrow.

We’re now late enough into the game that I’ve come to accept that Michelle probably won’t be making any Fuller House appearances, yet her legacy surely lives on.

Allow these 10 gifs to remind us of the fact that Munchkin really is all of us: Continue reading

By De & Kate

And just like that, summer is over. Okay, technically it’s not quite over yet. But we are beginning to dust off our fall decor and we’d be committing a lie of omission if we failed to admit that we’ve already started stocking up on pumpkin spice everything – ’tis the season! Before guzzling down our inaugural PSLs of 2017, filling our bellies and Instagram feed with apple cider doughnut holes, and tossing on our beloved flannel tops, we figured we’d soak in the last bit of summer by sharing our current favorites.

Here’s a quick look at some of the things we’re all about lately: Continue reading

How Sansa Stark Is Redefining Feminine Power Both On And Off The Screen

How Sansa Stark Is Redefining Feminine Power Both On And Off The Screen

By Jillian Stacia

Sansa Stark is arguably one of the most divisive characters on Game of Thrones. She’s been known to repulse viewers with her naïve and immature tendencies, and she’s the character fans tend to like the least.

On the other hand, supporters of Sansa claim that she’s slowly emerging as a feminist leader and is carving out a new definition for what it means to be a strong woman in a world dominated and ruled by men. Continue reading

The Problem With Netflix’s New Movie, ‘Death Note’

By Megan Kramer 

I am 100% what present-day society would refer to as a “binge watcher.” I have been known to watch full seasons of TV shows in one day, or one weekend if the season is particularly long. And while my binge watching isn’t limited to Netflix, most of it occurs there. The streaming service not only has some of my favorite older TV shows to binge, but also new, original programs that have been wonderful: Marvel’s Jessica Jones, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Stranger Things and Master of None, to name a few (because trust that I could go on).

But I kind of feel like Netflix is totally killing me.

You may be thinking, “Well, binge watching definitely contributes to a sedentary lifestyle, but it’s probably illegal to say Netflix itself is killing you.” And you’d be right. But that’s not where I’m going with this. Continue reading

7 Must-Watch Documentaries

By Joanna Grey Talbot

There is something about watching a well-researched and beautifully-filmed documentary that refreshes my desire to be a life-long learner. If a topic peaks my interest, I generally head to the library to find a book to read but a documentary fills in the visual gap, adding the images and emotion that a book cannot. Over this past year, thanks to Netflix, I have discovered and watched seven excellent documentaries that everyone could benefit from watching. Continue reading

Let’s Chat: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Season 2 Finale

By Casey Rose Frank

Perhaps, if you haven’t yet watched any of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend it’s because you’ve been put off by the name of the show, assuming, like I initially did, that it would mess of tired female clichés and a shrewish main character with no basis in reality.

But I couldn’t have been more wrong. Well, except for the last part.

Rebecca Bunch, played by the amazing Rachel Bloom, has a hard time staying strictly in reality, but it’s her fantastical music numbers that she uses to process her world that make the show so damn entertaining. It’s a show that’s self-aware, even calling out the term “crazy ex-girlfriend” as being a sexist term, and using “crazy” in general as being pejorative. Continue reading
