Netflix's 'Black Mirror' has returned for another season and is once again tackling how technology is affecting how we live our lives but also diving a bit deeper into human emotion and family dynamics. In the first episode of the new season, 'Striking Vipers' we see a man who moves to the suburbs with his family struggling to find his place in his new setting.

I played soccer growing up and while I enjoyed the short sprints up and down the field, running a long distance was something that never crossed my mind to do - and it is certainly not something that seemed enjoyable. So, when I met my now-husband in college and found out (once I was already too far into the relationship to turn back) that he ran 5K's and 10K's for fun, I found this information mind boggling. After cheering him on at a few races, he finally convinced me to run a 5k with him. I begrudgingly agreed and with minimal training set off one foot after the other to run my first race. Things were going great until after I crossed the finish line and ended up having an "athletic" induced asthma attack! I was 40 pounds overweight at the time and thankfully, after a few minutes, my lungs stopped turning on me and finally let some air in.

In the vast world of streaming services, web series, and tons of cable shows(for those of us who still overpay for a bunch of channels we don't use) it can be hard to sift through all the content out there. Ever since I took novel and film during my junior year of High School I've wanted to to be a movie critic. Like old school flip open a print newspaper and read the review for a movie you were looking forward to seeing because it was $5 back then, (which seems like a bargain these days!)and you didn't want to waste your money, kind of film critic. So thanks to the wonders of the internet I get to hop on my own platform and hopefully help shut out the noise and offer up some fun and enlightening content to binge watch!

With the second season barely having a chance to settle into its streaming home, Netflix has renewed controversial teen drama '13 Reasons Why' for third season.
And while the renewal comes on the heels of an uproar from the angered public over the graphic scenes portrayed once again in the series it seems note worthy to address why this conversation the show has started needs to continue.

With the newest installment of American Crime Story, American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace debuting of FX this week it has many fans asking the question:
Will it mesmerize audiences and critics as much as the first installment of the anthology series, American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson?
The first thing to keep in mind is how drastically different this season of American Crime Story is compared to the first.

Talking about grief is never easy. Perhaps that's why we don't talk about it. I mean like at all. For me, I think it was always this fear that I projected onto to others that I would make them sad if I talked about how I felt. It turns out, the only person I was hurting was myself. I don't think I ever fully realized the toll that losing both of my parents so close together would have on me.
