This post for Orange Is the New Black (OITNB) Season 7 is spoiler-free.

For characters that have been with me for so long, I feel sad that I will no longer be able to see how they’re doing on the small screen. In the final season of Orange Is the New Black (OITNB) (2013-2019, created by Jenji Kohan), audiences got to see the stories of Piper (Taylor Schilling), Alex (Laura Prepon), Suzanne (Uzo Aduba), Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Black Cindy (Adrienne C. Moore), Nicky (Natasha Lyonne), Lorna (Yael Stone) and Red (Kate Mulgrew), all come to an end.

The Boys is a hardcore gruesome television series that reimagines our favourite superheroes in a bad light.

This post for The Boys Season 1 is spoiler-free.

Based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys (2019, developed by Eric Kripke) is unlike any television series I’ve ever seen before. The series follows The Seven, a group of corporate-funded and marketed supes managed by Madelyn Stillwell (Elisabeth Shue) of Vought Corporation, who care more about their public image rather than saving the world. From handling their social presence to creating a heroic persona under false pretences, The Boys shows us how the world’s beloved superheroes are in fact anti-heroes.

Big Little Lies is and will always be one of the greatest television shows ever made, especially in the #MeToo and #TimesUp era; but I would have preferred for the series to end in Season 1, had I known how the writers intended to end Season 2.

This post for Big Little Lies “The Bad Mother” contains spoilers.

Despite all the lies and dishonesty surrounding Season 2 of Big Little Lies, you can’t say that Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Jane (Shailene Woodley), Renata (Laura Dern) and Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) are not good mothers because no matter what the circumstances are, they put their children in first priority.
