Lawyer. Writer. Columnist. Geek. Eternal optimist. Fangirl since the dawn of time. Hates the color yellow, olives and cigarettes. Has a recurring nightmare where she’s forced to choose between sports and books. Falls in love with fictional characters.
This week’s episode of The Good Place, titled “Mondays, Am I Right?” feels a bit like all the messages this show has tried to send for four seasons are coming to a head, and it’s both amazing and incredibly sad to be here, at the end of all things, with
I remember feeling two distinct things when this reboot was announced: joy, because it felt like it was a story that needed to be told, and a great deal of apprehension. How do you put these kids in a situation where they have to truly fend for themselves if they
Look, Crisis on Infinite Earths was a bit of a shit-show, which again, we should have been coming. And we’ve gone in depth, spent more time than what’s probably sane, analyzing every second of what happened. But, in true Fangirlish fashion, we also want to bring some sass. Because, I
Season 5 of Outlander is a little over a month away, and that means more and more information is being released about what we can expect. And let me just tell you, I’m absolutely here for what I’m seeing. GIVE IT TO ME NOW. Jaime and Claire as the backbone
At this point, I’m not even surprised. Or disappointed, really. I’m not numb, or determined, I’m not inspired to do better, or any of those motivational things. I’m just hella angry. Because, really, what do we have to do? As women? As minorities? How can we break into this old
I know, big words. But I’m standing by them. Sex Education season 2 surpases not just expectations, but season 1 as well. When you have a show that carried a few big names but relatively low expectations to begin with, and that show ends up being not just a ratings
Ships. In entertainment, and especially, in fandom, we live and die by them. Which is why every Friday, we’ll be focusing on a couple, analyzing why we ship them, and overall, just proclaiming our eternal love for those couples that make us say: I will go down with this ship.
Throughout the entirety of The Good Place, but particularly this season, with a new experiment, with the knowledge that the point system doesn’t work, we have been dealing with the same issue: humans evolve, they change, and they get better. And yet, they still end up in The Bad Place.
There’s a moment in the “Pilot” of the Party of Five reboot where, as her parents are being escorted away to the buses that will take them to Mexico, away from their kids for good, Lucia, the middle child of the family, screams at the officials: “What’s the matter with
There’s something about Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist I can’t quite explain. It’s not extraordinary, at least, not as much as it’s trying to be. It holds its cards a little too close to the vest at first, and there’s at least twenty minutes of this “Pilot” that leave you with the
Look, we weren’t expecting the CW to go ahead and, you know, cancel shows. It’s not like they ever do that. But it’s still somewhat of a shock to see them renew their entire lineup, especially as some of these shows have yet to air this season. What can we
If the new Outlander teaser is to be believed, season 5 is going back to what we fell in love with: Jamie and Claire. Though, of course, their lives have changed. The world has changed. But hey, I, for one, am happy to see a show that looks like what
And that’s probably a good thing. Look, I went into this expecting to fall in love with Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, which, if I’m being a fair, is usually a setup for failure. But I couldn’t help myself, I really couldn’t. I’m a show-tunes kinda person. If you look at my
Oh, to love love. It’s that time of the year again, the time to look back at the fictional couples that made us smile, the ones that made us sigh and aww. The ones that made our hearts aflutter, and the ones that reminded us that love is real. Now,
So, here we are. This journey, is complete, and it’s time for another one. Except, the next one will not be the same. It never could. Lyra isn’t the same person who started on this path, Will isn’t the same boy we met. They’ve both been forced to grow up.
The Year of our Lord 2019 is almost over, and apparently, this still needs to be said. Women of color are not interchangeable. Now, of course, the problem of bad representation is big, and there are many facets to it. I don’t mean to go into all of them –
I have so many mixed feelings about this movie. I’ve taken some time to digest it, I’ve discussed my thoughts with several people, and yet …I’m still struggling with how to put into words how I feel. Did I love it? Did I hate it? Was it a satisfying ending
For a moment there, His Dark Materials lulled me into a false sense of security. For a moment, I let myself bask in the fact that, although things weren’t perfect, they were looking up. Iorek was now king, Lee was alive, Lyra and Roger were together. Everything was good. No,
We talk a lot about diversity here at Fangirlish. I talk a lot about diversity pretty much everywhere. And we’re not anywhere close to where we need to be, not in the workplace, not in society and definitely not when it comes to the entertainment we consume. But some shows
Often, while watching A Christmas Prince 3: The Royal Baby I paused to wonder if this movie was really trying. I really shouldn’t have, considering I’d seen the first two multiple times, and I was very familiar with what this whole series is, but I promise, there was a few
Look, I wanted the songs too. I wanted the Mulan from my childhood. And yet, when the trailer ends with Mulan woving that she’ll “bring honor to us all,” my eyes filled with tears. Perhaps I also want this. Perhaps, I can still keep the Mulan of “I’ll Make A
