Power EP 50 Cent Chooses Trump Lower Taxes Over NYC Black People

Power EP 50 Cent Chooses Trump, Lower Taxes Over NYC, Black People

In what looks to be an embarrassing time for aging 90's/early 2000's rappers, we've had Ice Cube trying to play the "false equivalency game" between Donald Trump and Joe Biden's economic and tax plans for the Black community- until Roland S. Martin interviewed him and had some believing that maybe Cube hadn't actually read both […]

Happy Days: Trump Guy Scott Baio No Reunion Fan- But Who Really Cares

Happy Days: Trump Guy Scott Baio No Reunion Fan- But Who Really Cares?

The punchline to all of this? Deep down, you know for a hot second that Scott Baio (referred to as "Chachi" moving forward because I can't remember his sidekick name on that Dick Van Dyke show Diagnosis: Murder) got excited about the news until reality kicked in. Pure speculation, but the "reality" probably being when […]

What SNL Couldnt Do in 13 Minutes That Michael Che Did in 10 Seconds

What SNL Couldn't Do in 13 Minutes That Michael Che Did in 10 Seconds

If you've watched your fair share of Law & Order: SVU episodes, then I'm sure you've heard them talk about the "fruit from a poison tree" concept. In that instance, it's when evidence or testimony (the "fruit") isn't admissible if it's been obtained through illegal means (the "poison tree") because it's been tainted and no […]

Trump Biden Town Halls Beg the Question: How Do You Spell NBC F-O-X

Trump, Biden Town Halls Beg the Question: How Do You Spell NBC? F-O-X

All I wanted to do was kick back… relax… and bask in the news that Dexter was returning to Showtime to hopefully pry itself out of the position of having the worst series finale since mankind began quantifying those sorts of things. So leave it to Trump to go and f*ck that up, too. Except… […]

After DC FanDome and mulling over the new concept behind Superman & Lois as working parents struggling to balance their professional and personal lives.

Goosebumps Top 5 Eps That Still Have Us Hiding Under the Blankets

If you're like me, the show Goosebumps was originally a staple on your bookshelf before it was twenty minutes of a visual haunting.

For All Mankind: The Real Sci-Fi Battlestar Galactica Should've Been

Yes, a bold statement from me but not only do I stand by it, but I can prove it. What's that? You haven't seen For All Mankind because you don't have Apple TV+? One? Shame on you. Two? You should watch it because it takes all other wanna-be sci-fi series to task and shows them […]

Psych, What We Do in The Shadows & More: Thoughts on Latino Identity

I have been a big fan of the push for diversity lately. As Latina and growing up outside the US, I never realized how little Latino representation there actually is given that I was constantly surrounded by channels and artists who looked like me. Once I grew up and moved here, it became painfully clear […]

Double the Devil? I See What You're Doing There, Lucifer. I Like It

Well, hello. The long-awaited trailer for the fifth season of Netflix's Lucifer dropped yesterday and… wow. I still have my jaw wide open and probably watched it about seven times already.

Invisible Victims: How COVID-19 Impacts the Hollywood You Don't See

In the case of the more action-heavy shows like NCIS, 9-1-1, or SWAT, they have to react to a shooting down the block, or stand behind a barrier and look on at a crime scene or accident. Background Actor or Time Traveler? Ambiance for normal shows is all well and good, but where things get interesting (in[...]
