To thoroughly enjoy the glory that is Top Chef California, please welcome Alison Leiby, who now recaps the two-part season premiere. Spoilers below. Two is always better than one. That applies to heads solving a problem, glasses of wine in your hand, and, apparently, Top Chef premieres. That's right, we got two episodes for the price of, well, two. Just...

My mental health hasn’t truly impacted my life for a long time, until now that is. I have suffered with mental health issues since being a teenager (well over 10 years), yet my life so far has been full and thrilling. I have been to university, held down jobs, travelled abroad, progressed in my career and got married. Mental...

COMPLETE UNKNOWN

“Complete Unknown” has a killer opening sequence. Two young women, their faces tantalizingly kept out of frame much of the time, discuss a new living arrangement for one of the women, who’s back from a long time away, in an exotic location, where, she says, she worked with some “amazing botanists.” That woman, glimpsed in profile, is recognizable as...
Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you have watched season six, episode 10, which airs in the UK on Sky Atlantic on Monday at 9pm, and is repeated in Australia on Showcase on Monday at 7.30pm AEST. A couple of episodes back, when the Hound was negotiating over the right to avenge the death of Septon Ray, he was brought...
Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones exceeded every single one of my expectations. Revenge, revelation, and the most brutal winnowing of the show’s cast since the Red Wedding, all collided into one of the best episodes yet of HBO’s fantasy drama. I don’t even know where to begin. The sheer quantity of incredible moments in The Winds of Winter have left me...

John has a weird upbringing, having been raised in a funeral home by his mom (Laura Fraser). But all of the telling signs of John's sociopathology suggest that he's just a commonplace high-schooler. He blows off ostentatiously flirty classmate Brooke (Lucy Lawton) because he either can't see or doesn't care that she's into him. And he eventually confesses to his best friend Max (Raymond Branstrom)...

MORGAN

But one fairly consistent cinematic rule of thumb, especially in horror and sci-fi movies that range from 1931’s “Frankenstein” to last year’s “Ex Machina,” is this: Do not be tempted to play God and create an artificial, human-like being. Such incidents of hubris almost never turn out well. Stick with imaginary friends if you must, although they sometimes turn...
The Ask Reddit threads are truly a gift. Because forum users are cloaked in anonymity, they feel free to give some truly candid and eye opening responses to what some would deem some fairly taboo questions. For example, we’ve already took a front row seat to forum users sharing their most awkward and uncomfortable one night stand stories. Then...
