Review: “The Defenders”

I have usually loved the Netflix Marvel Cinematic Universe. Jessica Jones and Daredevil are thrilling, Luke Cage worked really well and Iron Fist... well, we don't talk about Iron Fist.  Jessica Jones most of all, as it was such a different and personal take on the "superhero" world, very all around well-crafted. Because of that,... Continue Reading →

Chewing Gum is the brain child of Michaela Coel, who... Continue Reading →

I am the whitest person I know, and I consider myself to have some sort of understanding of racism and the discussion around it. Superficial as my knowledge is, this show... Continue Reading →
