The 6 Inevitable Stages Of Watching This Is Us

The 6 Stages Of Watching This Is Us

By Kate Kole

I was a faithful member of the unofficial Parenthood fan club while it was airing. The Braverman’s conflicts, crises, heartwarming conversations, and unwavering loyalty to one another seeped their way into my soul. My husband and I would casually chat about what the characters were going through each week like they were friends of ours. “What do you think will happen to Joel and Julia?” and “I can see both sides with Adam and Christina.” And “Do you really think Zeek and Camille will really sell the house?” became normal talking points.

I looked forward to sitting down each week with a box of tissues beside me, knowing that I’d undoubtedly have all the feels as the hour of Parenthood unfolded. It was therapeutic. And I was more bummed than I probably should have been when the series came to a close. I’d make sweeping dramatic statements like, “I’m never going to love another show like I loved that one,” and “Now what am I going to do on Tuesday nights?” Continue reading

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

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

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

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

By De and Kate

A very merry early Christmas to us, season 2 of Fuller House is returning to Netflix today! And you better believe we’ll be cozying up on the couch this weekend to catch up with our favorite fictional childhood family. We’re quick to admit the storylines are cheesy, and Lord knows, we’re still wondering how Danny afforded that $4 million Victorian home. Let’s be real, hosting Wake Up, San Francisco was a good gig and all, but not that good of a gig. Continue reading

52 Thoughts I Had About Once Upon A Time’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror”

ROBERT CARLYLE

By Casey Rose Frank

This week we get a heavy dose of those Season One vibes that have become the backbone for much of this season’s narrative, and Henry gets some extra screen time that makes it obvious to viewers and his family members that the boy who once ran away to find his birth mother and show her a book of fairytales has officially become a young man in his own right.
