Time to take down your Halloween decorations and stash that candy in the freezer: November has arrived! And as this cursed year limps towards the finish line, all eyes are on the results of the presidential election. But too much cable news is bad for our brains, and even worse for our anxiety. Sometimes you just need to unplug from the relentless news cycle and curl up with some comfort television.

Chelsea Steiner
Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
