Editor’s Note: Today in our podcast, we go through the first three episodes of the Netflix hit Stranger Things.
WARNING: Spoilers ahead
With the second episode freshly aired, there are a few things on my mind with this season of AHS. Like… Why do these people keep living in a house which is clearly either haunted or lined in hallucinogenic mushrooms? Where did that 24-hour cop-car go when the bloody butcher knife was stuck in the front door? And where the heck is Evan Peters and Lady Gaga?!
Editor’s Note: Twenty-one years ago the Sailor Moon series debuted in America giving young girls one of the first female centric superhero shows. It also created a whole market dedicated to trading cards, stickers and toys. While Sailor Moon basically unofficially started Tea & Fiction, we have always had many issues with the various plot holes and lack of a backstory that left us grasping at straws. Today, we discuss these issues and the potentially darker plot line unexplored in the anime series.
I just finished the last episode of Grey’s Anatomy available on Netflix, an accomplishment that feels more or less on par with turning in my Master’s thesis. I mean, look at the time I invested in this show. According to a quick scroll through IMDB, seasons one through twelve were comprised of 268 episodes. At 43 Netflix minutes apiece, that means I spent 11,524 minutes, or 192 hours, watching this show. (I once calculated that I spent 800 hours behind the microscope for my grad school project, so the thesis comparison is not totally out of line.)
Let me first get this out of the way: I know that Grey’s Anatomy is kind of dumb. I could probably have spent those 192 hours on much better things. Yoga teacher training, perhaps, or filibustering. But I also think that Grey’s (as fans call it) isn’t a total waste of time. In fact, I think it gets a lot less credit than it deserves.
After a little over a week of watching nondescript commercials that managed to be as vague as possible and that utilized classic horror motifs from past horror movies: American Horror Story Season 6 finally aired.
When the credits rolled my reaction was, “What the fuck?! That’s all we get? What the fuck?”
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series, I thought I would shine a mini-spotlight on a show that rarely gets mentioned when fans talk about their favourite Star Trek series.
Editor’s Note: In our continued celebration the 50th anniversary of Star Trek’s 50 we are rolling out batches of our favorite episodes throughout the many seasons. Missed some? Check out part one.
Star Trek: The Original Series – The Trouble with Tribbles, Season 2, Episode 13
The back story of this episode is about the Federation and the Klingon Empire wanting to claim Sherman’s Planet. With both sides signing a treaty saying that whoever can develop the planet first, gets claim.
Editor’s Note: We at Tea & Fiction are big, big, big Star Trek fans. In honor of Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary today we will be rolling out a few batches of our a favorite episodes.
I was really excited when I heard about FX debuting a series by Donald Glover titled: ATLANTA.
Like most people, I got introduced to Donald Glover through NBC’s (later acquired by YAHOO!) Community from 2009-2014 before Glover left the show to work on his budding musical career (i.e Childish Gambino).
Not gonna lie, I was pretty heartbroken over Glover’s decision to leave Community. My heart will never recover from losing: Troy and Abed in the Morning!
I fell in love with Guillermo del Toro’s work with his 2006 feature film Pan’s Labyrinth. It had all the layers that I, as a slightly dark and twisted individual, gravitate towards. It balanced my love of fairy tales, fantasy, magic and creepy shit into a film that made my heart flutter.
