Five Things You Didn’t Know About Pearl Mackie
Often, it is the introduction of a new film or show that addresses problems like under-representation of visible minorities or LGBT individuals. Sometimes, however, long-running productions are able to adapt and become increasingly inclusive. Such is the case of the highly popular Doctor Who series, which has just this year introduced the Doctor’s first openly gay traveling companion. This character is played by the emerging star Pearl Mackie. Mackie’s first major role on television, Bill Potts, is a character which has received a great deal of attention.

[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 1 Episode 7, “The Other Side,” follow.]
It’s one of the biggest unanswered questions of Margaret Atwood’s novel “The Handmaid’s Tale” — what happened to the heroine’s husband, Luke, after their failed attempt to escape the religious dystopia in which she’s now imprisoned?

The Top 5 Limo Drivers in Movies
We enjoy watching a film because our favorite superstar gives us a fright, a thrill, a heavy dose of drama or makes us laugh uncontrollably. But there is much more to a great film that the actors in the lead roles. Supporting actors can give a movie the extra punch that it needs to go over the top. Some of my favorites have been the limo drivers. They generally know what is going on in the lives of the main characters and offer sage advice, or at least a trip to the airport at a climactic moment. We’re paying our

Men’s Reaction Toward Women-Only ‘Wonder Woman’ Screening Shows Exactly Why It Needs to Happen
The concept of a “Girl’s Night Out” is nothing new. People have always enjoyed the company of different groups of friends and different social circles. The idea that somebody would want to devote some time specifically to those individual or groups of friends is a basic tenant of Human behavior. And yet, somehow, this age-old practice has become acutely controversial: coming under fire by so-called “Men’s Rights Activists” and their supporters as an inherently sexist act. They claim that it is not a venue by which women can exercise their social autonomy, but a hypocritical double-standard that discriminates against men:

How Watching the Show Born This Way Can Make You A Better Person
For those who are unclear about the exact nature of Down Syndrome, it is caused by a chance occurrence that causes an extra chromosome 21, meaning that it is something that can happen in all conceptions. There are no known behavioral and environmental factors that can affect the chances of the occurrence, though it is known that the chance rises from 0.1 percent when the mother is 20-years-old to 3 percent when the mother is 45-years-old.

Casting the Perfect Game of Thrones Movie
Game of Thrones is coming to a close. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that HBO has been looking into the possibilities for a movie based on the A Song of Ice and Fire franchise for some time. However, the problem isn’t finding potential options so much as the fact that there are a number of them. For example, the most obvious choice would be a movie based on Robert’s Rebellion, which has a much stronger connection to the events shown on Game of Thrones than the other possibilities out there. However, Robert’s Rebellion has

‘American Idol’: Ryan Seacrest Talks Drag After Katy Perry Deal
Nearly three weeks after ABC confirmed that it would bring “American Idol” back to television, the singing competition has a high-profile anchor for its judges table, but no other confirmed talent on board.
ABC and producers FremantleMedia and Core Media locked up pop star Katy Perry as a judge for the upcoming season just in time for an announcement at the network’s upfront presentation. Perry’s services were secured at a rate of $25 million for the upcoming season — which sources tell Variety represents 65% of the budget earmarked for talent. No additional judges have since signed on to the show.
Nor have producers and the network been able to seal a deal with Ryan Seacrest to return as host. Seacrest had been in talks to rejoin the series — which he appeared on for all of its 15 seasons on Fox — since before ABC even made the revival official. But ongoing talks have failed to produce a deal. A »

Is The Flash Television Show Better than The Comic?
The Flash isn’t a single character so much so as several characters who share the same superhero name as well as similar superpowers. However, no matter the man beneath the mask, there can be no doubt about the fact that the Flash is one of DC’s most popular superheroes. For proof, look no further than The Flash, which started running on The CW on October 7, 2014 and has continued running since that time because it is both a critical and a commercial success. As a result, it is no wonder that some people are asking whether The Flash has
