Bob the Drag Race Talks Season 9 Finalists

It’s been a busy year for Bob the Drag Queen. Ever since the 30-year-old comedian took home the crown on the season 8 finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race, he’s been on a race of his own — traveling across the world (purse first, of course) for appearances, producing his own hour-long standup special (Suspiciously Large Woman,…

‘Fargo’ Season 3 Finale Explained

[This interview contains spoilers from the season three finale of FX’s Fargo.] So what do you think, Fargo fans? Was malevolent V.M.

Pretty Little Liars recap: Season 7, Episode 19

I can’t believe the penultimate episode of PLL has already come and gone… and it wasn’t really that great of an episode!

Orange Is The New Black premiere recap: Season 5, Episode 1

When we last left the ladies of Litchfield, things weren’t going too well.

‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 5 Review

Jenji Kohan overhauls her acclaimed Netflix prison dramedy with high stakes, a compressed time period and audacious but inconsistent results. Plenty of series go into their fifth season complacent. That’s true even of some very good shows. You have a formula and an ensemble and an episodic structure and they work, so why mess with…

For Season 5 of ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ there’s a riot goin’ on

The dirt on the set of “Orange Is the New Black” may be fake, but it’s awfully convincing. Brought to life on soundstages at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens, the fictional Litchfield Penitentiary is coated in a patina of grime and filth that leaves one immediately wanting to bathe in Purell. A guard station is…
