Grey's Anatomy: How the Medical Drama Tackled America's Daca Issues

While we've kept a close eye on April and Arizona due to their impending exits from Grey's Anatomy, the show threw us a curveball with a departure from one of the new interns, Sam Bello. Besides making our hearts ache for Sam and DeLuca, the writers also shed light on an important immigration issue: Daca.

Yup, Sam, the bubbly, hypercompetent intern who's been in love with DeLuca, has officially left Grey's. In the latest episode of the medical drama, an Ice officer arrives at Grey Sloan with a request to see her. Sam, who immigrated from El Salvador at age 1, is covered under Daca. Learning about the officer, she immediately freaks out even though she doesn't know what she did wrong. We eventually learn that she's been caught running a red light while going home after a full day of surgeries. Meredith and Maggie help her secure a position at Cristina's medical organization in Zurich,

'Grey's Anatomy' Dropped Some Major Bombshells in 'Beautiful Dreamer'
In Grey's Anatomy episode 19, titled "Beautiful Dreamer," the traumas may have been light, but there was plenty of heavy drama. DeLuca's and Bello's lives were turned upside down by a visit from an immigration agent. Owen made a potentially life-changing decision. Amelia's ultrasound project hit another roadblock. And Catherine revealed to Richard that the future of Grey Sloan Memorial is in serious jeopardy thanks to Jackson's do-gooding. All these bombshells are certain to have long-lasting implications as Grey's Anatomy careens towards its must-see finale.

Inside the Making of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’s’ Daca-Themed Episode (Exclusive)
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Beautiful Dreamer,” the 19th episode of the 14th season of “Grey’s Anatomy.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” has revealed that Sam Bello (Jeanine Mason), a surgical intern working at Grey Sloan Memorial, is an undocumented immigrant and a Daca recipient.

For the episode titled “Beautiful Dreamer,” producers enlisted the consulting services of Define American, a non-profit organization dedicated to humanizing immigrants through media.

“‘Grey’s Anatomy’ has always ​been ahead of the cultural curve, and Define American is honored and privileged to have worked with their expert team in charting new territory about how undocumented Americans are portrayed on network television,” Elizabeth Grizzle Voorhees, managing director of creative initiatives at the organization, said in a statement exclusively for Variety. “Define American is incredibly proud of tonight’s episode​, which​ is a ​highlight of ​our work in helping the entertainment industry

Grey's Anatomy Promo: A DREAMer's Worst Nightmare!

The staff at Gsm is having terrible luck with law enforcement this season. 

Jackson and April had an unpleasant experience with a couple of cops during Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 10.

Now, on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 19, someone will have a less than desirable experience with federal law enforcement. Oh, c'mon, you know which one. They're everywhere!

Unless you've been under a rock, you have probably noticed that the most popular antagonist these days both in fiction and in real life is U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 

It's difficult to watch a series without coming across at least one episode dedicated to some shady, immoral, or inhumane Ice agent harassing some Daca recipient.

A Futile and Stupid Gesture: Did That Ending Really Happen?

  • BuzzSugar
The new Netflix biopic A Futile and Stupid Gesture depicts the triumphs and personal struggles of comedy writer Doug Kenney, the founder of the renowned National Lampoon humor magazine. Comedy fans are likely to be familiar with writer's tragic fate - at the age of 33, Kenney fell off a cliff while vacationing in Hawaii. The movie cuts from a scene of Kenney sitting on a cliff to one of his friend Henry Beard receiving a phone call about his death, making no speculation about how the comedian dies. However, it drops a wild, twist ending that no one saw coming, taking creative liberties in depicting what actually happened at Kenney's funeral. We're talking about that crazy food fight at the funeral. In a surrealist setup, we see Kenney and an older version of himself watching friends and family pay their respects. Bill Murray notes, "Every funny person in the world is here.

The Gifted episode 3 review: eXodus

1.3 eXodus

Calling The Gifted an X-Men show is a lie.

That's not to say that it's bad, just that it's a misrepresentation. The X-Men universe is expansive enough that it can handle a diversity of genres - we saw it in depressing future western Logan, or in the glorious longform Bugs Bunny cartoon that was Deadpool, and in the trailer for psychological horror movie The New Mutants. But those movies, along with the eight other movies that make up the canon, all focus on X-Men characters doing X-Men things.

The Gifted is a Morlocks show, and this week's episode,

1.2 rX

It's still really early to say this, but watching rX, the second episode of The Gifted, the thing that struck me the most about it is how this show conveys how utterly shitty it must be to be a mutant better than anything live action since the first movie. 

For such a new show, one of its biggest strengths is how completely thought-out the world is. At one point early in the episode, Jace (the bad dude from Sentinel Services) mentions that "damaging property with mutant powers is a serious federal crime." That's a more robust legal framework than we are used to in the comics, where the law usually doesn't go past "Mutants/Heroes must register," and occasionally

Who are The Gifted?

James Hunt Sep 25, 2017

There's a brand new X-Men series coming - but who are The Gifted, exactly?

The Gifted is Fox's second adaptation bringing the X-Men universe to live action TV. Legion was very well made – visually terrific, clever and stylish, but it wasn’t too X-Men-centric. The Gifted? Though doubtlessly a more conventional take on Marvel's merry mutants, The Gifted could be the X-Men show fans have been waiting patiently for since at least the mid-90s.

As if to prove it, the show hasn't even aired yet and it already promises to be rammed with familiar names and faces. If you want to get up to speed on who (and what) The Gifted are, here's everything you need to know about the characters who have already been announced.

Elena Satine to play Beautiful Dreamer in X-Men series The Gifted

After roles in Smallville and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., actress Elena Satine is set to add another superhero show to her resume, with The Gifted showrunner Matt Nix revealing that she is set to take on the role of Dreamer (a.k.a. the Morlock character Beautiful Dreamer) in the X-Men series The Gifted.

Screen Rant reports that Nix has revealed that the character will make her debut in the second episode of the new TV series, and will find herself involved in a love triangle with Thunderbird (Blair Redford) and another as-yet-unrevealed character.

Nix also spoke about the character’s mutant abilities, stating that: “One of the things about her character is that’s a really sexy power that isn’t a gigantic power. We aren’t blowing up a building with her … it doesn’t involve a six-week CG build.”

Satine previously portrayed the character of Mera on Smallville,

Happy Birthday Ray Harryhausen – Here are His Ten Best Films

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Sam Moffitt, and Tom Stockman

Special effects legend Ray Harryhausen, whose dazzling and innovative visual effects work on fantasy adventure films such as Jason And The Argonauts and The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad passed away in 2013 at age 92. In 1933, the then-13-year-old Ray Harryhausen saw King Kong at a Hollywood theater and was inspired – not only by Kong, who was clearly not just a man in a gorilla suit, but also by the dinosaurs. He came out of the theatre “stunned and haunted. They looked absolutely lifelike … I wanted to know how it was done.” It was done by using stop-motion animation: jointed models filmed one frame at a time to simulate movement. Harryhausen was to become the prime exponent of the technique and its combination with live action. The influence of Harryhausen on film luminaries like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Peter Jackson, and
