Netflix’s new docu-series “Haunted” is more than just ghost stories reenacted to bring them to life for the audience.

‘Haunted’ on Netflix is the perfect show for the spooky holiday season

For some, the possibility of paranormal or supernatural occurrences is simply an impossibility. But for many Americans and people all over the world, encounters with unknown entities are more than just tale; these encounters are very real. Netflix’s new docu-series “Haunted” is more than just ghost stories reenacted to bring them to life for the audience.


Proving to be a constantly enjoyable presence, Bill Hader without a doubt earned his Emmy for this show.

‘Barry’ kills with great acting, story arc

With two acting Emmys under its belt and season two well under production, Bill Hader and Alec Berg’s “Barry” looks to be a promising addition to HBO’s ever-growing roster of quality television. Sitting down to view the show, it becomes easy to see why.

Netflix documentary ‘Wild Wild Country’ humanizes cult members with intimate footage, firsthand interviews

I wholeheartedly went into Spring Break last month with the intention of catching up on school work I fell behind on, but instead I binged an entire series on cults. Though to be honest, this isn’t entirely out of character for me on a regular week. Netflix’s new series “Wild Wild Country” hooked me from the start, and I think non-cult enthusiasts will find it just as addicting.

Mindy Kaling’s 'Champions' has strong leads, weak surrounding elements

If there’s one celebrity who I could become best friends with, it would be Mindy Kaling. “The Mindy Project” was one of my favorite rom-coms, and when it ended, I was horrified I would no longer have a weekly hangout with Mindy — so I mostly just stalked her Instagram. Luckily, she wasn’t gone for too long, as she premiered her new show “Champions” earlier this month on NBC. Though it’s not the greatest, any Mindy is better than no Mindy.


The white feminism of the "UnReal" protagonists is one of many aspects that make them two of TV’s greatest anti-heroes.

?‘UnReal’ season three nails girl power theme, yet seems disingenuous at times

In my opinion, “UnReal” is one of TV’s hidden gems. It was perhaps the first show that brought serious attention to Lifetime, as the network was formerly known to air cheesy, made-for-TV movies or “Dance Moms.” “UnReal” follows two female producers, Quinn and Rachel, of a “The Bachelor” parody program called “Everlasting.” They manipulate the contestants of the show, as well as their co-workers, for the sake of good ratings.
