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

PSA: It’s Okay To Care About Celebrities

By De and Kate

Meeting your future sister-in-law can be an intimidating experience. Lucky for us, the introduction was made easier by an instant connection over reality TV. More specifically, Season 7 of The Bachelorette. Upon meeting, we spent hours watching Ashley Hebert in her quest for love and took turns talking (perhaps sometimes yelling) at the TV, as our relationship advice needed to be heard.  Continue reading

Celebrating Audrey Hepburn

By Jana-Lynn

Growing up, I was never interested in Audrey Hepburn.

Not that I assumed her to be a terrible person. It just that there was something about the way women were seemingly obsessive about her just turned me off (I blame the non-conformist in me.) I never watched her films or knew much about her background but I just never delved too much into her life. I was very stand-offish.

And then the weirdest thing happened a few years ago: everyone kept giving me Audrey Hepburn gifts.
