The Good Place Reboots Itself Yet Again in This Season’s Best Episode Yet

If there's one constant The Good Place has shown, it's change. This is a show that is constantly painting itself into corners only to explode the whole room (and sometimes the very reality of rooms in general). The latest episode, which is hands down the best of the season so far (and I'm not just saying that because it gave us shirtless Chidi), does that yet again, essentially resetting the entire premise. Again.

Outlaw King Review: Tonally Confused, but Overall Enjoyable to Watch

3 out of 5 best Chrises.

Often historical movies can feel dry and lose us in the story, but with Outlaw King, it works in terms of telling a story to a modern audience, but the tone ends up being all over the place.

Paul Rudd and Jeffrey Dean Morgan Own a Candy Shop That We Suddenly Need to Visit

OK, this is a wholesome story, so I'll stop quoting 50 Cent's lyrics to "Candy Shop."

There is, apparently, a hidden gem in Hudson Valley, New York. Fans of Paul Rudd, the immortal god among us, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, everyone's favorite Hot Dad, have a candy shop. (Somewhere in the distance, "Candy Shop" by 50 Cent is playing softly.) Called "Samuel's Sweet Shop," the lovely little place also features the occasional Paul and Jeffrey behind the counter.

#TrumpDMLeaks Reminds Us That the Thoughts He Keeps to Himself Must Be Even Worse

Why not make a meme making light of the insanity of our president?

Of course there's a new Donald Trump meme on Twitter. Every day, we seem to mock the president more and more (no matter how often we think there's no way to top the most recent incident), and while humor can help keep our spirits up, it does grow tiring. We shouldn't be able to mock the leader of our country so easily, and we shouldn't want to mock that person this badly.

Like me, my partner was used to being dissatisfied with the emotional depth of female characters and the lack of queer relationships in media. Relationships like Steve/Bucky and Remus/Sirius give us the emotional depth and intimacy we want, with characters we relate to and care about.
