My Top 6 Halloween TV Episodes

Halloween is almost upon us, my ghoulish friends. If you’re anything like me, you had your broomstick and cauldron at the ready the moment the clock struck midnight on October 1st. Well, more like 11:59pm on September 30th. I’m nothing if not punctual.  Now, my favorite ways of indulging in this most sacred time of year can range from donning spooky apparel to watching my favorite Halloween flicks. However, I’m a self-diagnosed TV addict at heart. There’s nothing I love more than a good Halloween themed television episode. Comedies tend to cater to the “themed” trend more so than genre,...

INHUMANS Recap: (S01E04) Make Way for…Medusa

DISCLAIMER: This Inhumans recap contains more spoilers than the number of times Black Bolt stares broodily into the distance. Our Inhuman King is a big fan of brooding. You’ve been warned. Prepare for Terragenesis and enter at your own risk.  Welcome back, residents of Attilan! Inhumans returned to us this week with another eventful installment.

THE GOOD PLACE Recap: (S02E05) Existential Crisis

DISCLAIMER: This recap of The Good Place contains more spoilers than the number of times Jason rode around in a kangaroo pouch at Vicky’s party. Jason loves kangaroos more than his dope dance crew. You’ve been warned. Say your prayers, and proceed with caution.  Welcome back, denizens of the afterlife! The Good Place blessed us with its triumphant return tonight. “Existential crisis” was just that – Michael embargoing on an existential crisis of eternal proportions. Then, we saw him abruptly transition from existential to midlife crisis. More specifically, an ’80s middle aged father with his snazzy new corvette and diamond stud earring. Oh,...

The Best Halloween Movies of the ’90s

Halloween is, undoubtedly, the most wonderful time of the year. Let there be no protest – you know this to be true. When the clock strikes 12 on October 1st, I immediately transform into a witch. Specifically, a Gothic witch who travels back in time to the ’90s. Does my affinity for ’90s Halloween movies stem from the fact I grew up in that decade? Most likely. However, another potential reason is because they’re the best representations of the spirit of the season. Again, this brooks no argument since, deep down, you know the truth is very…true.  Now, I’ve compiled...

It’s October 3rd: 10 Ways to Celebrate MEAN GIRLS Day

“On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was…” Can you believe that Mean Girls came into our lives 13 years ago? Yes, the teen comedy turned cult classic graced our screens in the mid 2000s. I was but a wee teen myself then, bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to start high school. Little did I know I would still be incessantly quoting Mean Girls to this day, always laughing giddily over every joke. Mean Girls took on a similar trajectory to 2001’s Josie and the Pussycats: it became an in-depth analysis of adolescent culture that’s just as relevant today. Not to mention it’s...

BOJACK HORSEMAN Season 4 Paints a Visceral Portrait of the Human Condition

Thank the Netflix gods, we finally have a Bojack Horseman Season 4! It feels as though we waited a millennia for our favorite inebriated Hollywood horse. Immediately, I commenced my binge session once the coveted fourth season became available. This show always unlocks something within me, whether it’s a repressed memory or a feeling I can readily identify with. Creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg knows how to push the right buttons to make you feel. He’s your daily reminder that you’re not a robot. You’re a messy, emotional human being. Season 4 gave us our typical Bojack Horseman, but times ten. Everything is jacked up tenfold.  Now,...

THE GOOD PLACE Recap: (S02E03) Dance Dance Resolution

DISCLAIMER: This recap of The Good Place contains more forking spoilers than the number of times Eleanor has ventured out to The Medium Place. You’ve been warned. Proceed with caution.  Welcome back, torturers of The Bad Place! Thursdays have been deemed holy thanks to the return of The Good Place. We’re only on episode 3, and already the scheming and shenanigans have been jacked up to an eleven. Michael’s evil plan has twisted in a direction I didn’t think plausible.
