The 'Girls' Author Isn't Real, But He Resonates

Girls creator and star Lena Dunham has been a vocal advocate for victims of sexual assault and in the final season of her HBO show, she has dedicated an entire episode to the topic. After Hannah writes an article accusing author Chuck Palmer of sexual assault on Girls, the very famous writer invites Hannah over his home to confront her about it in the third episode of Season 6, "American Bitch." The entire episode takes place in his home and it will inevitably cause controversy as Hannah and Chu…

Meghan Trainor Wants You To Be Proud To Be A Lady

Meghan Trainor is at it again. Not only has her latest single provided a beat that you'll be dancing to in no time, but the lyrics to Trainor's "I'm a Lady" are all about celebrating womanhood. Trainor wrote the song for Smurfs: The Lost Village, which makes sense since the film puts the only female Smurf — Smurfette — in the lead. Yet you don't need the context of the latest Smurfs movie to shake it to "I'm a Lady," since it totally stands on its own, thanks in large part to Trainor's empowerin…

The Perfect 2017 Oscar Party Menu

The Academy Awards are Hollywood's biggest night — and perhaps its longest night if you don't count a screening of Gone with the Wind. To get through your 2017 Oscar viewing party, you'll need sustenance and plenty of it. That's why I've created my third annual Oscar party menu. Partly inspired by the foods consumed in the nine movies nominated for Best Picture and partly inspired by movie title puns that will only please fans of dad jokes, these 11 recipes will help keep your guests well-fed du…

Sydney's 'Legion' Powers Are Inconvenient

It's kind of hard to have a romance with someone when you can't touch them, but that's the reality — or fantasy (because who knows what's real at this point) — that Syd and David are dealing with on Legion. As the second episode had them both living in the seemingly friendly facility of Summerland, they've had a second chance to connect after their disastrous time at Clockworks Psychiatric Hospital. Yet, Syd and David still can't touch on Legion, despite the change of location. That's because al…

13 Photos Of 'GoT' Stars When They Were Young

Over the last six seasons, fans of Game of Thrones have watched the Stark children grow up sooner than any child should have to. Yet, even with a decent amount of young actors on the not kid-friendly HBO show, seeing photos of the Game of Thrones cast as kids is pretty much always a delightful experience. Whether you've watched these actors grow up on screen or they were adults when the show started, young photos of Game of Thrones stars prove that there was life before Thrones and that it was g…

'Jane The Virgin' Shows That Grief Is Complex

Balancing keeping a show fresh and exciting while ensuring a beloved character is not forgotten after his death is no easy task. Yet, Jane the Virgin is handling Jane's grief over Michael's death appropriately by showing the realistic side of mourning. "Chapter 56" started with Jane in therapy following Michael's death and even when the series jumped forward three years in the future for the main action, Jane was still suffering from the aftermath of such a tragic loss. While I knew Jane the Vir…

Rafael Is Being Less Than Zen On 'Jane The Virgin'

While the new and improved Rafael has been a delight since Jane the Virgin jumped three years into the future, "Chapter 56" showed that he may not be as "zen" as he has been acting. The show implied that Rafael might be involved in Scott's death on Jane the Virgin and if you've been enjoying post-prison Rafael, this isn't good news. Despite Rafael appearing super shady during the cliffhanger ending of the Feb. 20 episode, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Rafael's amazing friends…

Did Cyrus Point A Gun At Liam On 'The Royals'?

When Cyrus is your last resort on The Royals, you know you're in trouble. That's the predicament that Liam was put in during the Season 3 finale and when he asked his uncle for help, it looked like Cyrus pointed a gun at Liam on The Royals. Sure, it seemed that the former king was excited to form an alliance with his nephew, but the episode ended on that cliffhanger. While I doubt that William Moseley would never not be part of the E! show, it certainly looked like Cyrus might shoot Liam on The …

Wilhelmina Could Be Queen On 'The Royals'

While Wilhelmina deserves more screen time on The Royals, perhaps becoming Robert's queen isn't the right way to go about it. That's because the king was revealed to be a sadistic mastermind during the Season 3 finale, so it won't be good if Robert marries Wilhelmina on The Royals. For his list of potential brides, Robert removed Kathryn and added Willow to the top and since Willow appeared on the balcony with the new king and a tiara, could that mean that Wilhelmina will become queen in Season …

Keep Up With 'The Royals' While You Wait For S4

Brothers at odds, the princess and the bodyguard broken up again, and a new king about to be crowned. It's just a typical day in the life for the royals on the E! series The Royals. With the Season 3 finale airing on Feb. 19, fans of the show are already wondering about when Season 4 of The Royals will air. Creator Mark Schwahn will undoubtedly end Season 3 on a cliffhanger, so the wait for Season 4 is going to be a hard one. Yet, I have a few ideas on what Loyals can do to occupy time their tim…
