The rumor mill is always churning out some juicy secrets or details these days. Whether another professional athlete has side baby, or another Kardashian lands herself in a new relationship, celebrity gossip stays buzzing. This time, however, news comes from the realm of television as it is rumored that ABC is looking to spinoff  the recently cancelled Roseanne reboot!

Rumor has it that ABC is looking to base the spinoff of the reboot on Sara Gilbert’s character, “Darlene Connor.” As you may already know, Darlene is Roseanne’s second daughter and middle child, known for being as sarcastic and cynical as she is intelligent. In the reboot we saw her living with Roseanne and Dan again with her son and daughter after losing her job in Chicago.

Variety reports that Sara Gilbert and the executive producers of the currently deceased show met with Channing Dungey this past Monday and presented her with an idea for a spinoff featuring Darlene. John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf would be willing to join said spinoff, as would the now-unemployed. Because the show was renewed for a second season, an approved spinoff could go into production immediately and be ready to go possibly by late November—maybe just in time for Thanksgiving, so viewers can spend time with a casually racist family that is not their own.

Truly, it seems all the stars are aligned for some form of this program to return—but there is still the issue of Roseanne Barr, the star of Roseanne, who is the reason the show got cancelled in the first place. As she’s the creator of the character Roseanne Connor, she’d have some financial stake in any spin-off, which is a situation that ABC doesn’t want to support. The very same curiosity that drove viewers to watch the reboot in the first place will likely draw them back to a spin-off featuring Darlene, which is clearly what the networks and producers are banking on, ever since their money source, a Twitter troll, flew a little too close to the sun.

We have to say we saw this Darlene spinoff coming. After Roseanne spewed her racism on Twitter we knew it was only a matter of time they found a way to continue this widely popular show. We suspect they will kill her character off and have her family move on without her with Darlene taking on the role as the new matriarch of the Connor Clan. We are keeping our fingers crossed for Sara Gilbert, she definitely deserves this opportunity!

Netflix continues to push the envelope with its amazing and innovative series. The latest being one of its most outlandish, and interestingly informative–Sex Education! The dramatic comedy centers on, Otis (Asa Butterfield), son of a sex and relationship therapist (Gillian Anderson), dealing with his own insecurities and phobias surrounding sex.

Asa Butterfield, Ncuti Gatwa, and Emma Mackey in Sex Education (2019)

Otis, alongside his best friend, Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), are low on the totem pole in the high school hierarchy. This all begins to change for Otis when he begins to fall for Maeve (Emma Mackey) a girl who happens to be an amazing writer, but has been labeled as the school slut. Otis manages to unwittingly find a niche for himself forming a “clinic” with Maeve to help their classmates with various sexual issues and the hijinks ensue!

What We Liked:

-The dramatic and comedic tones of the show. It really shows life–and sex–at best can be bittersweet.

-The dynamic between Otis and his mother. Her profession juxtaposed by the awkwardness of his burgeoning sexuality and the tension of many teen-parent relationships is all too real.

-The love triangle between Otis, Jeffery, and Maeve.

-The diversity of sexuality and sexual situations. This show does The Kinsey Scale justice!

What We Loved:

-The friendship and bond between Otis and Eric. These two were as thick as thieves and their friendship really overcame a lot.

-Eric’s journey of self-love and discovery, and the love he received from his family and community. It’s a far cry from the unsavory “welcome” many LGBT people of color receive.

-The array of information about sex! All kinds of sex–DOPE!

What We Hated:

-We would have loved to learn more about Otis’s father. He should definitely make an appearance Season 2.

-The love story between Eric and his bully is “to be continued…” Hurry up Season 2!

#BingeWatchWorthy: Netflix’s “She-Ra & The Princesses of Power”

The 2010s will go down in entertainment as “The Age of Reboots!” First our favorite sitcoms, dramas, and movies from the nineties are revamped (Full House, Roseanne, Charmed, Boy Meets World, etc.) Now it seems it is time for animated series to get their own rebooted treatment as a true blast from the past–the eighties to be exact–series, She-Ra & The Princesses of Power, is now available on Netflix!

The 2010s will go down in entertainment as “The Age of Reboots!” First our favorite sitcoms, dramas, and movies from the nineties are revamped (Full House, Roseanne, Charmed, Boy Meets World, etc.) Now it seems it is time for animated series to get their own rebooted treatment as a true blast from the past–the eighties to be exact–series, She-Ra & The Princesses of Power, is now available on Netflix!

The series is set in a mystical dimension on a planet known as Etherea. There the natives are rebelling against The Horde, an evil, occupying force led by Hordack and his sorceress, Shadow Weaver, is bent on ravaging their world. The Rebellion, led by Angella, Queen of Bright Moon, is constantly on the defense against them while the other monarchs of Etherea have opted to protect their lands solely. The tide begins to turn in The Rebellion’s favor as Adora, a young girl with a mysterious past, and a former Horde soldier, is chosen to become She-Ra, The Princess of Power, prophesied to save Etherea from The Horde and restore it to its former glory. To do so Adora/She-Ra must unite all the Princesses on the planet, all while learning the full extent of her power, and being confident in her destiny.

What We Liked:

she-ra

-Adora was an experienced fighter and soldier already. She-Ra’s power only supplemented that.

-The diversity of The Princesses of Power. Each one was from different cultures but manage to overcome their differences for the greater good! Girls CAN work together!

-The friendship between Adora, Glimmer, and Bow. It was the heart of the series, and kept the story grounded.

-Swift Wind–who doesn’t like a flying and talking unicorn?

What We Loved:

catra and she-ra she-ra and the princesses of power netflix

Catra vs. She-Ra

-Adora’s transformation sequence into She-Ra! It was very reminiscent of The Sailor Scouts from Sailor Moon.

-The complex, love-hate friendship between Adora/She-Ra and Catra. Even though they are on opposing sides and even fight, neither of them truly wishes to destroy the other. Their friendship is more like sibling rivalry than actually enemies.

-Shadow Weaver set as a motherly villain for Adora and abuser of Catra adds layers the series. It really juxtaposes the characters and brings in the whole nature versus nurture argument. Who would be the heroine here if Shadow Weaver’s affections had been switched.

-The more powerful characters of the series were primarily women.

Scorpia and Catra at the Princess Prom

-The Princess Prom was not gender conforming. People wore what they wanted and went with whomever they desired.

-The Princess Alliance was everything! We have to admit Frosta and Mermista are our favorites!

What We Hated:

shadow weaver she-ra and the princesses of power netflix hey mikey atl

Shadow Weaver

-We did not see enough of Hordak. What makes him so ominous and threatening. Hopefully we will see him in action in Season 2.

-Where’s the mention of Adora’s biological family? In the eighties series, she was Prince Adam of Eternia/He-Man’s long lost twin sister who was stolen from their family on Eternia shortly after their birth.

-We did not see what finally caused Mara to lose her way and banish Ethera to the Despos Dimension.

-Most of the characters looked like adolescents. In the OG series they were at the very least teenagers or young adults.

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” is pretty much what G-Status ATL Hustle Star, Cordae Gomes has revealed to the masses when it comes to the series’ director, Jah Kitai. As you may already know, for months now it has been speculated, implied, and outright accused by other cast members that the pair is romantically involved. Cordae’s admission of love came via two Instagram posts made of videos of the two from an unknown trip to Miami and some of them kissing.

Check them out below!

Based on the caption from Cordae in the post we see that he and Jah are not “officially” together, but we have to wonder if that is them taking it slow, or waiting for some bigger moment to make some official statement. Honestly, we have so many questions about all of this. Namely, the ethics behind it when it comes to G-Status ATL Hustle and if this relationship has influenced or affected Cordae’s music. Still, the other cast members have often argued Cordae was production’s darling. There may be something to this; after all no one can compete with pillow talk. Still you can find love in the most unlikely places, and when love finds you there really is nothing you can do. We invite both of them to our platform to EXCLUSIVELY discuss their relationship, and to set all records straight! In the meanwhile you can catch Cordae’s new single, BlondeRadio, from his forthcoming album Sex With A Songwriter, below. Happy listening!
