by Eve Jones (V). Photograph by Sven Scheurmeier. I’ve never really had on-screen romantic crushes, but I remember from a young age having this ache when watching my favourite actors on screen.

Me Too & Media // Thoughts on Arrested Development & Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Netflix has been bringing it with the comedy recently! Between John Mulaney’s hysterical stand-up, to Michelle Wolf’s new weekly show, it’s been a great time to spend in bed doing depression binges and putting off all your responsibilities!

Don’t Trust The B In Apartment 23 || Hot Messes & Having It All

As a pop culture junkie, I thought I may as well get some articles out of this crippling addiction. In Q’s Queue, we’ll be having a look at some of the hits, hidden gems and horrors found on my Streaming list, all through a feminist lens. Today’s venture: Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23. Apartment 23 recently dropped on UK Netflix and I could not be more stoked. I’ve long been a fan of Kyrsten Ritter, from her days as tragic junkie Jane on Breaking Bad, to her starring vehicle on Jessica Jones (both shows just happen to be…
