Olivia Pope and Annalise Keating Could Be in the Same Room, and I Think I’m Gonna Die

Scandal's Olivia Pope and How to Get Away With Murder's Annalise Keating are two of the most powerful and fascinating women on television right now, played beautifully by Kerry Washington and Viola Davis, respectively.

When Is Once Upon a Time Going to Fix Its Enduring Rape Problem?

Despite my enduring love for Lana Parilla, I stopped watching Once Upon A Time a while ago, checking in briefly for what should have been the series finale last season and never looking back. However, because I still have my Regina Mills tag on Tumblr, sometimes non-Regina whisperings come into my feed. Which is how I found an io9 article about how in the most recent episode, a familiar and disgusting problem returned to the show: magical rape.

Things We Saw Today: New Poster & Stills for Lady Bird

Ever since I saw the trailer for Greta Gerwig's directorial debut Lady Bird I was really excited. Not only do I love a coming of age story, but Saoirse Ronan is an amazing talent to watch even in the most tedious of films (cough The Host cough). I especially love movies about a young woman trying to come to terms with what it means to be a "successful person"  the pressure to excel and be your best self, often happens at the expense of your best self.

Help Me Judge This Trailer for The Good Doctor, ABC’s Show About a Doctor With Autism

ABC’s The Mayor Might Be the Feel-Good Do-Something Political Show We Need

We're in the middle of Upfronts season, which means we're getting glimpses at all the shows networks have planned for the fall season, in what is unsurprisingly turning out to be their (by and large) white male glory. The ubiquity of the white male lead/possible woman/POC sidekick dynamic definitely makes the trailer for ABC's The Mayor stand out.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Debrief Season 4, Episode 21: “The Return”

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been on a real tear lately, and they've been playing their stacked hand with much aplomb. In other words: this season is so good.

Groundbreaking, Female-Led 90s Sitcom Roseanne Is Getting the Revival Treatment

Revivals are a mixed bag. Sure, they provide a chance for us to reconnect with stories, characters, and actors we love. There's also a chance (*cough*Gilmore Girls*cough*) that the revisit will force us to realize that time hasn't been kind to the thing we love. Now, there's a new revival being shopped around Hollywood, and I think it's one of the rare shows that genuinely deserves a revisit. I'm talking about the feminist, blue-collar 1990s classic, Roseanne.

Make Room for the Frenemy: The Need for Complex Interaction Between Women on Television

The problem that we tend to encounter with the dialogue surrounding female dynamics in television is that it’s often presented in a binary fashion, a clear good (think Abbi and Ilana’s lovingly tight bond on Broad City) versus evil (like Revenge’s Victoria Grayson and Amanda Clarke). There are fantastic stories that exist at both extreme ends of this spectrum; however, that still leaves so much undervalued middle ground, where opposing colleagues and frenemies alike dwell.

Interview: Dr. Ken‘s Suzy Nakamura Talks Performing Comedy While Asian and Female

Ken Jeong's (Community, The Hangover) ABC sitcom, the semi-autobiographical Dr. Ken, is currently in its second season, with viewers loving the humor and the Asian representation (we can't put it all on Fresh Off the Boat, you guys). Jeong's co-star, Suzy Nakamura, plays his wife Allison, a doctor in her own right. I had the chance to chat with the seasoned comedic powerhouse about her role, as well as the perks and pitfalls of being an Asian woman in comedy.
