Andrew as monster… In context it’s past tone deaf For this, I quit you.
Sisters as stories Compel us more than romance. Dreamy’s not the sun. He died, amplified. That episode reminds us healthcare is not like TV. Maggie, Amelia and Meredith, now that is a show I’ll watch.
Gemma: The big question that ended up swimming for me was simply, how would I have made this film differently? It is in many to most ways godawful agitprop. It happens to be godawful agitprop where I in the main agree with the underlying content: that the Israeli state is unethical and its founding myth […]
Rasha: So, I’ll start by saying two things: One, since I haven’t seen Birth of a Nation, this might be the most racist film I’ve ever watched. Two, even on its own terms, I’m not sure what this film is trying to accomplish. Gemma: What would you say “its own terms” were? R: That’s a […]
For Nakba Day, we’re offering the films and documentaries we’ll be watching, together and on our own, over the next month. We’ll review some of them here in the weeks to come.

Also, then we’d have to reverse Cary’s QUIET DIGNIFIED SADZ. R: We should make gifs. Gemma: I don’t know how to, but I’m so in. R: But seriously, it’s supposed to be […]
Rasha: We’re here today to talk about Kalinda because we love her, we love the way she has moved through the storylines and relationships on The Good Wife, and we’re both sad to see her go and also very excited about what Archie Panjabi will do next. Gemma: I hope she gets a successful pilot. […]
Rasha: What I want to know is: has anyone in the TGW writers’ room heard of the Log Cabin Republicans?? Gemma: If so, they’re ignoring them. R: Yep, they sure are. And as much as I do love, love, love Oliver Platt, and even really am enjoying him as R.D., I am not for a […]
Gemma: Doesn’t every single election ever on this show end in this exact manner? Our protagonist wins in an ethically compromised fashion that will come back to haunt us, but not really?
