6 Bingeworthy Netflix Shows (and Books) Everyone Is Talking About

in Potpourri by

There are so many new streaming TV shows, it can be difficult to know what’s worth watching. While we love Hulu and Amazon’s offerings, Netflix is still our tried-and-true choice for original content. From mind-bending thinkers to funny escapist comedies, they have the widest range of consistently strong television. This fall they’re themselves, with a ton of great new shows that have everyone talking. Here are the most buzzed about shows you will want to binge on and a few good books you should be reading alongside them: She’s Gotta Have It When director Spike Lee set out to redo his first feature length film from 1986, some people were skeptical, especially about the controversial scene of sexual violence that Lee…

6 Reasons River Song’s Return to Doctor Who is Epic

in Fiction by

Every Doctor Who fan has a favorite companion. From the tough-as-nails-Amy Pond to the sweet-and-clever-Clara Oswald, countless women — and a few men — have strolled through those TARDIS doors. But my favorite isn’t even technically a companion; no, she’s too busy having her own adventures to need some man to show her the universe. I’m talking about Alex Kingston‘s River Song, aka Melody Pond, aka the Doctor’s Wife. Which is why I screamed out loud when I heard that she’s returning for the Doctor Who Christmas Special this year, alongside the Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi. Flirty and brash and ridiculously in love with the Doctor, River Song is a bit polarizing in the Doctor Who community. But for each of the…

I’m getting goose-bumps just thinking about it. So here are three shows (and one book) with mind-bending plots for your binge-watching pleasure. And no, Lost isn’t among them. Sure, it was awesome, but all those loose threads and polar bears? It might have been too complicated even for me. Doctor Who After years…

Who dressed you like that? Doctor Who style from best to worst

in Fiction by

Doctor Who is debuting its Twelfth Doctor this week, and every Whovian out there is waiting on pins and needles to see how Peter Capaldi will portray our favorite Time Lord. Will he be goofy and sweet like the Tenth Doctor? Or quirky but a little damaged like the Eleventh? Only time (and the premiere on August 23) will tell. In the meantime, I’m more concerned with how the Doctor will look. The official photo from the BBC promises sleek suits with a magician-like flare: But how will he stack up in terms of the other Doctor’s personal styles? There have been a lot of looks over the past 50 years—some awesome, some…not so much. Before the eighth season premieres…
