Harry Styles – Sign of the Times

Over a year from the “hiatus” of One Direction, Harry Styles is the last member of the band to release solo material. Styles’ almost six minute long ballad laments the loss of a relationship that seems to be repetitive in its toxicity (as most ballads tend to do):

“We don’t talk enough / We should open up / Before it’s all too much / Will we ever learn? / We’ve been here before / It’s just what we know”

Supergirl: 2×15- Exodus

PREVIOUSLY| Following last week’s episode of Daddy Dean Cain stealing a registry of the aliens in National City. This week’s episode not so subtly tackling the treatment of immigrants (aliens) which is not to far off with what is happening in America right now. There is even a scene where the immigrant aliens are shown being gassed.

Legends of Tomorrow – Legion of Doom

LoT was initially meant to be a roundup post because I don’t always have time to write about everything but… I have to talk about this week’s ep!

PREVIOUSLY | Season 1 was a mess. The main villain Vandal Savage sucked. Hawkman and Hawkgirl sucked. Rip Hunter sucked. They were cut from Season 2 and Commander Steel (a historian, with powers to have his entire body turn into steel) and Vixen (a member of the Justice Society of America, who came aboard the Waverider to avenger her lover’s death at the hands of Reverse Flash). Reverse Flash, Damien Darkh and Malcolm Merlyn are all characters that were honed on The Flash and Arrow so the audience is familiar with each of them.

I steadfastly hated the pilot episode of this show. Did episode two change my mind?

Veronica’s mom is broke af and hits up Luke Perry for a job, eventually working at Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe.

Pop Culture Plug: @gilmoreguysshow

Gilmore Guys is a podcast about, well, Gilmore Girls. Hosted by longtime fan @KevinTPorter and newcomer Demi (@electrolemon), the first episodes of the podcast are admittedly rough but hits its stride in the season two episodes. Aside from gabbing about each episode, there are also mailbag episodes where readers send in their questions that lead to some hilarious discussions; as well as Gilmore Gabs where they interview the cast and crew of the show. In fact, their first high profile Gab was with Scott Patterson where he first revealed the revival was in the negotiation stages. Other major Gabs included Milo Ventimiglia, Kelly Bishop, Keiko Agena, Liza Weil and Sean Gunn. Lauren Graham is also carded for a future Gab.

“Charmed” Reboot: Good, Bad and Ugly

 

 

As a teenager growing up, no two shows were more special to me than Charmed and Gilmore Girls. Charmed premiered on the WB in October 1998 and I’ve been an OG fan for almost twenty years. I still watch the reruns on Netflix (which I hate because I can tell where they replaced the music they no longer have the licenses for), have the limited edition DVD sets even boxes of VHS tapes from a pre-Internet life where you couldn’t download or stream the next day… I genuinely love this show. It’s always been a big part of my life. We’ve been #blessed to finally have the Gilmore Girls revival this past November and now it seems another blast from the past is back. Here’s the thing though: the headlines are saying “Charmed reboot” but the fine print is saying “re-imagining” of the original series. I have complicated feelings about this reboot because it seems like a scam and publicity grab.
