The site then goes on to appropriately describe the wines as “dramatic” (but are they the most dramatic yet?), and “crafted to take you on your own romantic journey as you experience every moment of love, every moment of heartbreak that is The Bachelor. Read more…

Here’s a missing ‘Westworld’ scene we wrote to fill in the show’s biggest plot hole



This piece contains spoilers for Westworld, up to and including episode 10.

Westworld‘s first season came to a close, tying together several loops, loose ends and unanswered questions.

Viewers finally learned that William and the Man in Black are in fact the same person, which has been theorized since episode 2. However, having seen William’s transformation from hero to psychopath, we have to wonder what exactly happened when he and Logan went home after their visit.

Yes, Logan’s fate in episode 10 was left undefined — William sends his future brother-in-law off into the sunset, naked and bound on top of a horse — but since Logan was last seen alive onscreen and the fact that William explained his business plans to him, we have to imagine Logan makes it out of Westworld alive. In which case, what the hell did his father and sister think about William’s time in the park? Read more…

Netflix newbie ‘Brown Nation’ is the off-kilter Indian sitcom that’s truly authentic



Holiday quality time with the family can be stressful even at the best of times, and TV has always been a welcome escape. Finding something everyone can watch is its own anxiety, but it’s more than likely I’m going to spend Thanksgiving watching — ahem, re-watching — Brown Nation with my parents.

Released Nov. 18 on Netflix, Brown Nation centers on Hasmukh (Rajeev Varma) and Dimple (Shenaz Treasurywala), a married couple living in Queens with Dimple’s eccentric father (Kapil Bawa). While his wife chases dreams of artistry and stardom, Hasmukh runs a small startup and often gets roped into questionable side projects with his friend Hyder (Remy Munasifi). Read more…

10 things to binge this holiday weekend



As Marie Antoinette once famously said, “Let them binge all the things.” 

Thanksgiving is a time for eating until you can scarcely stomach another bite, shopping until you quite literally drop, and consuming all the TV, movies and other media available before Monday rears its ugly head.

That’s a lot of pressure for just a few days, so let’s get cracking.

The Crown

Whether or not you devoured this immediately after its Nov. 4 release, the world has changed significantly since that weekend. Escape American politics by immersing yourself in the goings-on of the British monarchy, and revel in the days when a leader accidentally yelling was more scandalous than one saying … well, literally anything.

‘Gilmore Girls’: Taylor Swift songs are all about Dean, Jess and Logan



They tell all young artists one thing: Write what you know. In the early days, teen Taylor Swift had little experience with heartbreak, which would become the basis of most of her musical work. She drew inspiration in the beginning from fiction and film.

And, perhaps, early aughts dramedies about a mother and daughter duo?

Swift’s songs are supposed to be universal, but sometimes they hit too close to home — especially if you’re Rory Gilmore. Rory is another young ingenue, inexperienced in matters of love and swept off her feet by one dashing, flawed suitor after another and her romantic path mirrors Swift’s too closely for comfort.  Read more…
