Netflix documentary ‘Wild Wild Country’ humanizes cult members with intimate footage, firsthand interviewsBy Monique Scheidler | Apr. 13, 2018
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.
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.
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.
2018 has been Donald Glover’s year. Or maybe it’s been our year since we get to enjoy Donald Glover? In any case, whether it’s winning a Grammy in January or landing the role of Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo prequel, Glover has been on fire.
Despite its title, “Everything Sucks!” has some redeeming qualities. For fans of 90s music, LGBT representation and teenage angst, you’ve hit the jackpot, actually.
Say what you will about Valentine’s Day, but it’s the perfect opportunity to watch some of TV’s greatest romances. Now that the week is over, however, and everyone is in a different place romantically, I’ve hand-picked some episodes that deal with all types of relationships on the romance spectrum.
This past Sunday was a big day for television. Sure, it was also a big day for football and remaining Justin Timberlake fans, but the biggest event of them all came after the Super Bowl craziness.
This past Sunday, Showtime’s long-winded favorite “Shameless” tied up their eighth season, and longtime fans can rejoice because the show has already been picked up for a ninth.
There’s no one who loves a good murder mystery more than I do. Okay, there probably is, but I’d just like to say that I really love murder mysteries.
