My idle mind is a funny place. It may look like I'm working or normal or even sane, but most of the time, I'm thinking about really weird things, like what my life would be like as a superhero. Though I would have to figure out ways to get rich before I'd forfeit my TGIT for saving lives, I often imagine how much easier my life would be if I could throw lightning or take a leisurely super-sonic jog to a gloriously Cheeto-free Earth (On Earth-2 Beyonce is a senator!) like The Flash's Barry Allen.
But Iris West, one of the only members of Team Flash who isn't a meta-human, is forever proving that black girls have a power all their own: black girl magic.
I will forever loathe Dawson's Creek creator Kevin Williamson for patenting that hyper-intelligent super-polished manner in which teenagers in all high school dramas now speak, especially when I can only pry a few words out of my incredibly intelligent niece.
It's one of the very few downsides of 13 Reasons Why, Netflix's latest and possibly best series since House Of Cards. Based on the novel by Jay Asher, 13 follows Clay Jensen's discovery of cassette tapes his friend Hannah recorded before her suicide dictating the reasons why she decided to take her own life. It is a haunting cautionary tale about teen suicide, bullying and a rightfully scathing commentary about society as a whole.
Overwrought dialogue aside, 13 is an unflinchingly powerful, beautifully written and expertly acted glimpse at the emotional rigors of high school life in the age of Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter--something executive producer Selena Gomez knows more than a little about. In these times, when compassion seems to be nearing global extinction, 13 Reasons Why is should be assigned homework for everyone, parents and kids alike.
Something terrible is happening: networks are announcing the dates of their *gulp* season finales of all of our favorite shows. How could we let this happen?! What am I going to do in that endless, sweaty showhole normal folks call summer?!
Thankfully, I've been through this before, and I know how to handle the post-TV season panic in a way that is more productive than chaining myself to that sculpture in the The CW's headquarter's lobby. I just need to remind myself that that my Netflix and Bravo are still my entertainment lifesavers, and in mid-March, most shows are still in production. Also, thanks to an ever-evolving television schedule, some shows are just beginning production.
Earlier this week, EW.com reported that the one and only Angie Tribeca herself was guest-starring on ABC's black-ish as Rainbow's sister. If you thought it was too good to be true, we know now have photographic proof! In the snap above posted by star Tracee Ellis-Ross, Rashida Jones looks AMAHZING and this BTS shot features all of the Johnson siblings thus far, including Daveed Diggs' free spirit, Johan.

Women are badasses. If you don't believe me, turn on your nearest television, if you don't find Congressman Maxine Waters dragging Captain Cheeto with finesse that makes even the Atlanta Housewives jealous, you'll find others organizing protests, saving lives and handling all the things.
Television is filled with nasty women, kicking ass in their own special ways. On International Women's Day, it's an empowering reminder to do the same in whatever way you can.
Here are 8 nasty women television would be lost without...
Finally there's actually some major entertainment coming your way in March. No, I'm not talking about that endless college basketball tournament, but the gaggle of new television all blooming in this month. Add in the fact that the sun is still up at 5pm, and March is looking far more alluring than ever before.
Here are 4 new TV shows premiering in March that you cannot miss.
It's been said that we are in the golden age of television because of the sheer volume, variety and availability of programming on broadcast networks, cable and streaming services. And yet, TV fans still must suffer through the stress of waiting for their favorite shows to be renewed and the consequent gut-punch of grief when they aren't.
Thanks to social media, fans have a direct line to show’s creators, writers and stars, and fans are fighting back.
As it usually does, Monday's Jane The Virgin aired a brilliant and soul-crushing piece of television that was as exquisite as it was devastating. "Chapter Fifty-Four" saw all of the characters embarking on game-changing journeys and one unexpectedly die.
Thanks to Andy Cohen, Bravo has created some of the most decadent reality TV moments in the genre’s history. Who can forget the ‘Who Gon' Check me Boo?’ greatness from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the brutally of the Richards’ sisters limo fight or the ‘Scary Island’ episodes from The Real Housewives of New York that proved that truth is always more terrifying than fiction?
There’s another priceless gem to add to Bravo's treasure trove of entertainment: the dueling marriage conferences on Married To Medicine.
Here's all the tea about how this priceless event came to be...
It’s not hard to fall in love with Supernatural. From its game-changing combination of macabre humor, gut-wrenching feels, ride-or-die bromance, classic horror, and dashing leads, there are a lot of reasons why The CW’s sci-fi show about two monster-hunting brothers saving people is the longest drama in WB and The CW’s history--250 of them to be exact.
Supernatural roared into 2017 celebrating its landmark 250th episode, reminding everyone why you don’t mess with the Winchesters.
Has the world missed Sam and Dean Winchester in the tedious weeks since Supernatural’s fall finale? According to the ominous new Supernatural promo, the answer is an emphatic yes.
Even Crowley, the King of Hell, admits, “Every Armageddon, every end of days...the Winchesters stopped it. Like it or not, they’re an asset we can’t afford to lose.”
