 Like every other reality dating show, it tried to be different. Like every other reality dating show, it wasn’t. “Too Hot To Handle,” challenged 10 single people, five men and five women, to embark on a journey of self discovery and a chance to create more meaningful connections. The only ...

A jawn. Pronounced jôn. Noun. A person, place, thing, or event that doesn’t need a specific name. An indescribable, but memorable entity. I’m Shiavon and this is Shiavon’s Jawn. (If these two words don’t rhyme, then you’re saying my name wrong.) It's episode three of the HBO scripted t...

Every week, I’ll be recommending a film or television show currently available on certain streaming websites. New or old, it does not matter. I’ll recommend anything that I feel should be seen by many people. When tragic and unexplainable things start to happen on film sets, what sort of answer...

What would you do if I told you that for three months out of the year you were stuck in a dark, empty space, no motivation to do anything and you had absolutely nowhere to go? What if I also told you that it had nothing to do with COVID-19 and quarantine? That deep, dark space is how it feels to b...

I just want to say how proud I am of Issa for looking past Condola dating her ex. What kind of person would stop a bag over a man you were supporting financially only three years ago?  Molly.

April 13, 2020

When I talk about Quibi, it almost sounds like I’m describing a parody app. It’s a streaming service where television episodes are no more than 10 minutes long and you can only watch them on your phone. That’s why it’s called Quibi — it’s short for “quick bites.” When I first heard...
