Idris Elba tweets teaser for ‘Luther’ Season 5 and OMG


Splendid news, Luther fans — Season 5 is officially on its way.

On Monday night, Idris Elba shared a brief teaser for the show’s new season on his Twitter.

Well, that’s certainly a nice surprise.

Still, so we don’t exactly have much to go on so far.

Aside from a bloodied Elba walking up to stare at the camera and the words “This will hurt”, details are currently pretty thin. We don’t even have a date yet: just that equally exciting/frustrating phrase, “coming soon”.

Better than nothing though, eh?

EXCLUSIVE: ‘13 Reasons Why’ Actor Defends Season 2’s Most Controversial Scene

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains SPOILERS for Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why. Proceed at your own risk.

When 13 Reasons Why exploded with Season 1, it wasn’t just because fans loved it. Which they did. It was also because of the controversy it stirred.

In Season 1, the show tackled toxic high school culture, rape and teen suicide – with some scenes pretty graphic and hard-hitting, particularly for a teen show. Some of the series’ critics felt that the way in which the topics were handled wasn’t all that responsible. But if anything, in Season 2 the shock value is upped. This time, the creative forces behind the show have been especially careful to issue clear and frequent warnings about its content, coupled with advice on where to seek help should the show’s subject matter affect you. Some Twitter users have issued trigger warnings for sexual assault victims and urged people not to watch.

‘Don’t watch it if it offends you’ seems to be the motto of Netflix, the service which airs the show. CEO Reed Hastings said: “It is controversial. But nobody has to watch it. We’re an on-demand service, and we feel great about the possibility of season 3 and look forward to supporting the team’s work in that.”

It will come as no surprise, perhaps, that Season 3 has since been greenlit. And that’s despite a particularly graphic and harrowing scene in the season finale which sees school baseball star and bully Montgomery de la Cruz brutally assault outsider Tyler Down. You can read a description of what happens in that scene here.

FANDOM caught up with Timothy Granaderos, who plays Montgomery in 13 Reasons Why, and asked him why it was important to include the scene in the season finale.

Deliberately Provocative

13 Reasons Why
Timothy Granaderos' Monty confronts Devin Druid's Tyler.

“It was part of the inciting incident for Devon’s character Tyler to carry out his plan at the end. So, for the story it makes sense. But also, it’s a subject matter that we don’t really talk about. Male-on-male sexual assault happens more than we realise and it’s an issue that I think needs to be addressed and talked about,” says Granaderos.

Season 2 ends with Tyler planning and almost carrying out a horrifying school shooting. He’s talked down by Dylan Minette’s Clay Jensen outside the doors to the school.

Granaderos believes that the show is deliberately provocative.

“Obviously there’s some controversy around our show but all the issues that we deal with are tough subject matters to speak on, so if we can get a conversation started about those things then that’s what we intend to do. In a real and honest way too,” he says.

He says that being a part of the show has “opened my eyes to the idea that as actors, we’re more than just entertainers.”

One of the criticisms directed at the series is that the attack seems to come from nowhere, which makes it doubly shocking. Granaderos offers his thoughts on why his character carried out the horrific attack.

“In preparation, I did research and I tried to figure out why he did it. I found that the root of his actions was pain,” he says. “He had all this pain and displaced anger from the baseball team’s season being cancelled and, you know, his ‘brother’ Bryce basically breaking up with him, and he didn’t know where to go or who to turn to. So he dealt with it in the only way he knew how — and that was physically abusing someone who he felt was weaker and [who] he blamed for part of his pain.”

Sweaty Palms

Grenaderos admits that he wasn’t surprised at the reaction to the savage attack they depicted on screen. And, in fact, he had a very telling physical reaction to the scene after reading it in the script.

“I didn’t know about [the scene] until later on in the season,” he says. “Our showrunner approached me a couple of episodes out and asked me if it was something I’d be comfortable doing. And at that point in time, that scene was just a pitch, it wasn’t even confirmed that it was going to be in the script. He just wanted to make sure I was comfortable doing it. So, I knew it was coming and it was shocking when I read it. I remember just turning the pages and my palms were sweating.”

At some point, he says, everyone was “all on the same page” and the scene was shot, and included.

“Going into it we felt very prepared,” he says. “We had a safety meeting where Devin [Druid, who plays Tyler] and I spoke with the producers and our director as well as the stunt coordinator how everything was going to play out. They showed us storyboards of the space and the shot so all the technicalities were clear in our mind before we went into the scene. They also allowed us to ask any questions we had.”

If their plan with Season 3 is to up the ante once again, it’s going to be a tough call to include anything more shocking than Montgomery’s horrendous sexual assault on Tyler. But if 13 Reasons Why is indeed a show that sets out to provoke, you can bet they’ll try.

13 Reasons Why Season 2 is available to stream now on Netflix.

NeNe Leakes Sparks RHOA Season 11 Filming Assumptions – Fans Defend Kim Zolciak

We recently reported that NeNe Leakes is back on Instagram after her short break that she took due to her husband Gregg Leakes’ health issues. She posted a gorgeous pic with Porsha Williams which left fans impressed by their friendship, and they asked the two RHOA stars to take care of each other.

Now, NeNe shared a few pics, and in some of them there’s a crew present who is filming her, Fans assume that the filming for the 11th season of RHOA has begun. Check out a few pics and what fans have to say.

#setlife #lfeofnene

A post shared by NeNe SHADE Leakes (@neneleakes) on

‘Y’all filming RhoA season 11 already ?’ someone asked NeNe.

‘This is one Black Queen I can truly say I’m proud of! LOVE, Respect a Longevity! KEEP GOD FIRST and Make those Coins 💸💰💰💴 Hun!’ one of her fans gushed over her.

‘It’s about time for her to have her own show! I would love to see her in something like Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane @bravoandy’ someone else said, assuming that NeNe will have her very own show.

‘Keep making big money moves. Congrats. You don’t need joggers. Ha ha ha,’ a commenter told the RHOA star.

‘I tell people you can be covered and still be sexy as Hell to men. We prefer it,’ one of her followers gushed over her look.

‘@neneleakes confused on why you don’t have your own show!!! @bravotv get nene her own show please,’ another fan said, wanting to see NeNe having her very own TV show.


A post shared by NeNe SHADE Leakes (@neneleakes) on

‘She needs to go away forever can’t stand you. You are nothing but a hater and a bitch. Once ghetto always ghetto. What you’ve done to Kim Zolciak you should be ashamed of yourself. You’re the racist not her. Like they say you can take the girl out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the girl. No wonder your son Bryson is on drugs. If you were my mother I’d be on drugs too,’ a hater commenter said, slamming her of racism.

We wish NeNe all the best if she has her own show or regardless of her plans.

And we don’t think that this is a ‘good’ time to be hating NeNe as she’s been struggling with a lot of hard issues such as the health of her beloved husband. Overall, we don’t encourage such hating behavior ever.

‘Queen Sugar’ Season 3, Episode 2 Recap: ‘Give Me What I’m Due’

Photo Credit: Skip Bolen / @2018 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved

And just that fast…we’re back with Episode 2 of the third season of Queen Sugar. In a sweet treat for all the QS fans, the season premiere is over two nights. So here we are with “Of Their Sojourn Here” the episode’s official title.

Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe) has found out that Blue (Ethan Hutchinson) is not his biological son, which has to have some far-reaching emotional complications. But in true Ralph Angel style, he’s plowing ahead, although Blue has for sure chosen a strange time to start acting up. Ralph has his hands full these days. But good news is ahead – his parole officer informs him that his probation can end early if he hires some other ex-cons. But as with everything with Ralph Angel, this sounds like a good idea that may go badly.


So on to the rest of the fam. Nova (Rutina Wesley) who is becoming just a li’l annoying – like, can she be vulnerable and human for once and not ALWAYS on a soapbox (Like that time with Remy from last season!) is of course, thrilled by the anthem protest, but not how the teens are being portrayed in the media. She wants to write a story but her paper’s blocking her as they lost advertising on her most controversial work. So while Nova has some decisions to make, Aunt Vi has some pies to make.

She’s been asked to up her order and promised prominent placement in the supermarket. But her oven is out so she heads to the High Yellow. But as you can expect, the owner, Clyde, ain’t hearing that. So Vi’s out of there for good (does this mean they’ve got to find a new hangout? I kinda like that spot.)

While Aunt Vi is trying to secure the bag, Hollywood (Omar Dorsey) has already secured it. He’s got his settlement check. Now you know how Black folks act when they get a settlement and Hollywood is no exception. We’re going shopping!

After his experience at the game, Micah (NIcholas Ashe) wants to go to public school. For him, it’s as much a step towards independence as it is a desire to be around people different from the ones he’s known all his life. But of course, Charley is against it. Micah enlists the help of his father, Davis, (Timon Kyle Durrett) who suggests that he approach Charley logically. She still ain’t feeling it.

Remy, instead of becoming Charley’s lover, has instead become her biggest critic, because he believes her alliance with the Landry family will come back to haunt her. She’s already being haunted by Jacob Boudreaux (Lea Coco) who may be a nice guy in real life but plays creepy quite well. He reminds her that they share a secret, while making that secret seem illicit. Chill, dude, you ain’t getting nothing but a check from Charley.

‘Queen Sugar’ Recap: Season 3, Episode 1: Does The Truth Set You Free?

Queen Sugar Ep 301 — Photo Credit: Skip Bolen / @2018 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved

The Bordelons are back and in the season 3 opener, it looks like we are in for another complicated ride with this interesting, perplexing, fascinating and sometimes frustrating group. Nova (Rutina Wesley) is hell-bent on her activism, as usual, after dumping her white police boyfriend Calvin (Greg Vaughan) for the cause after he professed his love and left his wife last season. (Damn shame, they had such amazing chemistry.) Right before a story is rejected by her newspaper, she finds out that a New York publishing house wants to sign her to a book deal.

It could be a dream come true for Nova, but we suspect that although they want to make her the next Ta-Nehesi Coates, a white editor might be an issue. Well, she’s not sure if she wants the deal just yet. Oh, Nova, go ahead and get that money!

Money is flowing these days around the Bordelon family. Even though her man Hollywood (Omar Dorsey) is getting a big settlement check from the oil rig explosion, Aunt Vi (Tina Lifford) is doing fine on her own. She’s got the pie business. Meanwhile, her man is hovering around her like she’s a delicate flower just because of her lupus diagnosis. But c’mon, Vi’s pretty strong. She wants Hollywood to give her some room. But he’s not having it because that ain’t the kind of man he is. Oh, we feel it, Hollywood.

Charley (Dawn Lyen Gardner) and Micah (Nicholas Ashe) have moved into a big, pretty mansion and out of the mill. Now that she’s in partnership with the shady Boudreaux family, we can’t blame her for wanting some space away from work. (Her kitchen, though!!) She signs the deal with them for the mill, holding on to her 1% ownership ask, knowing that it will give her access to the financials. So she’s surprised to find out the Landry family is in debt after they’ve put up a big stake to partner with her. Uh-oh. Let’s hope that wasn’t just as smooth a chess move on their part. Remy (Dondre Whitfield) ain’t feeling Charley or the Bordelons at this point. He won’t even sit with the family when they see him out. Guess he’s set up to be the #1 hater this season.

Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe) is having some issues with Darla (Bianca Lawson) gone. He’s still fine as hell, though and the local women are smelling him like a shark smells blood now that he’s single. But don’t get caught up ladies, Ralph Angel ain’t hardly in an emotional place to settle down. With Darla just away as far as Blue knows, he’s becoming a different child – acting out, not following directions and generally giving Ralph Angel a hard time. With everyone else caught up in their own lives, they don’t have a lot of time to step in and help, so Ralph is doing the best he can. But it might be time for Blue to get an old-school beating. Maybe time outs are just not working.

A Black Lives Matter anthem protest happens at a big high school basketball game attended by the whole family. This protest inspires Micah (Nicholas Ashe) and goes well with his new hobby – photography. His mother, meanwhile, has hired someone to find out what’s going on in the police department. And guess what, turns out a whole damn lot. The officer who traumatized Micah has done it to others. And somebody got it on tape.

But this episode’s most devastating moment is when Ralph Angel gets the results of his paternity test. He is NOT Blue’s biological father. Wow. We didn’t see that one coming. Ralph Angel doesn’t expect it to change things, but man, he could be so wrong about that.

Here’s to another season of the Bordelon fam!

‘Trollhunters’ Creator on Emotion-Filled Season 3, Anton Yelchin’s Legacy

SPOILER ALERT: Warning, this article contains spoilers from Trollhunters Part 3 on Netflix. Proceed at your own risk.

It’s always challenging to replace a cast member, and especially tough when the circumstances are so tragic.

The late Anton Yelchin had voiced Jim Lake Jr., the lead character in Netflix’s Trollhunters, for two seasons before his untimely death at age 27. For series co-creator and executive producer Marc Guggenheim, it wasn’t a question of how, but of whom, to move forward with.

“We made a decision very early on that we were less interested in finding someone who could clone or parrot Anton’s performance than we were just finding the right person,” Guggenheim told FANDOM on the eve of the Season 3 premiere.

“It was about getting the proper actor,” he explained. “The fact that Emile was friends with Anton made it particularly special. The moment Emile said yes — that was the moment where we felt it was going to work, because it was going to work the way we wanted it to.”

Of course, each actor brings something different to Jim.

“I think he brings a slight edge to the character of edge that we didn’t ask of Anton,” Guggenheim described Hirsch. “That ended up working extremely well in the story we were telling.”

That story — the crux of Season 3 — is Jim’s final confrontation with his archenemy, the warload Gunmar. Like many heroes in fiction, he seeks something that will give him an edge in battle.

“What he doesn’t have to rely on is something deeper than just a weapon,” Guggenheim teased. “It’s going to require Jim to make certain sacrifices. You can’t ask a hero to be victorious without some sacrifice. The choices Jim make in the back half of the season really up the stakes.”

Some of Jim’s most difficult choices come from having to side with one mentor over another, which can be seen in this exclusive clip.

“We were interested in a conflict between his two mentors — Strickler and Blinky. As you saw in that clip, we wanted to put Jim in the middle of his two father figures with two different points of view.”

The showrunners upped the stakes by adding a third figure. “And then Merlin comes in and requires Jim to make an even larger sacrifice that Blink and Strickler are NOT supportive of. It felt to us like this is a very bold way of going even deeper into Jim’s emotional arc,” Guggenheim explained.

What a Witch

Heady’s Cersei doesn’t hold a candle to Morgana when it comes to reveling in evil.

Merlin’s own nemesis — the witch Morgana — also presents a constant danger to Jim and company. She’s voiced by none other the Games of Thrones’ Lena Heady. But don’t think Morgana and Cersei Lannister are one in the same.

“While Morgana is every bit as evil as Cersei, there’s a lightness about it,” Guggenheim explained. “Morgana is a far less tortured individual than Cersei is. [Heady’s] not just doing Cersei Lannister in an animated form. She’s really crafted a different performance.”

“I think Cersei is a very unhappy person, whereas Morgana exults in it, she really delights in being evil,” he added. “Lena is having such a good time, it’s just infectious.”

New Faces

Trollhunters Season 3
Krel and Aja’s adventures will continue in ‘3 Below’

Two newcomers join Hirsch and Heady in the new season. Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany and Rogue One’s Diego Luna voice Aja and Krel, respectively.

Maslany’s experiencing playing multiple characters on Orphan Black allowed her to hit the ground running.

“Tatiana’s first record really was a revelation,” Guggenheim said. “The moment she opened her mouth and starts speaking in this foreign and alien accent that she created for the character … we were blown away.

“Diego brings so much energy and passion to his role that during his record we had to start video recording him. We had to share that information with the animators. Diego is bringing so much more than just his voice, he was bringing facial expressions, body movement — things quite frankly I wanted to see reflected in the actual animation,” Guggenheim admitted, revealing that the writers were inspired by the newcomers’ strengths.

Aja and Krel will anchor the next series in the franchise, 3 Below, which he says “has all the heart and humor and action that Trollhunters does but it comes about in an original, wholly different way.”

But before that, Jim and company must complete their journey in Trollhunters, which contains a tribute to the late Yelchin.

“The final ten minutes of the finale, I mist up every time. I’m not a big crier, but it’s so emotional,” Guggenheim said. We came up with a way to revisit Anton and his performance and it’s just incredibly powerful.”

Fans can catch the emotion-filled Trollhunters Part 3 on Netflix now. 3 Below will premiere later this year.

‘Krypton’: The Phantom Zone Requires a Shocking Sacrifice in Season Finale

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Krypton episode “The Phantom Zone.” Proceed with caution.

Krypton‘s first season wrapped this week in an episode that showed the full force of Brainiac as he invaded Kandor City. The episode also united the Zod and El families, something not often seen on screen or in the comics. The episode was also a very emotional one, as Val-El was freed from the Phantom Zone, Nyssa learned a shocking truth about herself, and a terrible price was paid. Let’s jump into the episode’s most notable moments.

Val-El is Restored

Krypton Season Finale

After spending years trapped inside the Phantom Zone, Seg‘s grandfather, Val-El, was rescued and returned by Dru-Zod. Seg and Val shared an emotional reunion, especially since the last time Seg saw Val, Val was being executed. Zod was willing to find Val because he believed that Val held vital information to Brainiac’s defeat. Val returned with a dark prophecy, however, that no matter how many futures he saw ahead, Brainiac was never defeated.

Neither Seg nor Lyta could accept that truth: Seg wanted to save lives and Lyta wanted to fight Brainiac. It’s no wonder Clark Kent will have such a passion in him, in the future, to both save lives and stop anyone who would take them. Together, Lyta and Nyssa found a way to sneak into Kandor, while Seg, Val, and Zod decided whether it was the right choice to use Doomsday.

The Clone Conspiracy

Krypton Season Finale Nyssa

Back in Kandor, Lyta assembled what was left of the Military guard and sent them to attack Brainiac. Nyssa went her own way, to get her and Seg’s unborn child from the Genesis Chamber. Once inside the chamber, she was approached by the creator of Black Zero, Jax-Ur. Jax accused Nyssa of helping her father build the city of injustice that Kandor had become.

Jax then showed Nyssa a shocking secret that was lurking within the Genesis Chamber. It didn’t just hold babies, it held clones. Jax then told Nyssa that she was a clone, her own clone, after the first version of herself died in a crash with her mother. The clones were created to help wealthy Kryptonians live forever. You can read more about the cloning practices on Krypton in the pages of the DC Comic book, World of Krypton Vol. 2.

Defeating Brainiac

Krypton Season Finale Brainiac

After Brainiac assimilated himself into the Voice of Rao, he then disabled the shields that were protecting Kandor City. His massive ship descended upon the city, bringing with it the sheer force of the weather storm outside. Brainiac told Kandor’s citizens that his rule was their eternal life and that they should rejoice to become part of him.

Zod then proposed one way to save Kandor City: to offer Val and his well-spring of future knowledge to Brainiac. Seg refused, which prompted Zod to ask Seg the same question that has been asked in a lot of superhero films of late: would you sacrifice one life to save millions? Vision asked this question of himself in Avengers: Infinity War and Coulson asked it of himself in Agents of SHIELD.

The episode concluded with a final showdown in the Fortress of Solitude. As Brainiac came to absorb the mind of Val-El, Seg tricked him into the Phantom Zone vortex. While Brainiac was pulled in, so was Seg. In a stunning scene, the further Seg was pulled into the Zone, Superman’s cape began to reform. Seg was then completely sucked in and left his grandfather and his son with his final words: start believing in a better tomorrow again.

The terror wasn’t over, however, as Superman’s cape then transformed from a red cape bearing the House of El sigil, to a black cape bearing the House of Zod sigil. OH MY GOD. Dru-Zod then stepped into his place as General, commanding all other Kryptonian leaders to “KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!”

If that doesn’t set up a brilliant new challenge for Season 2, then I don’t know what does.

Krypton will return to SYFY in 2019.

During the finale, season 13’s winner Chloe Kohanski returned to perform, as well as Jason Aldean, James Bay, Big Sean, Florence + the Machine, Halsey and Dua Lipa! However, it was all about the contestants.

Team Blake’s Kyla and Spensha came in third and fourth, respectively! Before the winners were announced, both Keys and Clarkson had the chance to talk to their finalists.

“I just want to tell Brynn there are no final words. We’re so excited, we have people lined up that love her and want to work with her. And honestly, same thing for Britton. First and second, who cares! Y’all have delivered,” Clarkson said. “I couldn’t be more proud of both of you!”

Keyes echoed Clarkson. “You’re both so powerful and incredible and focused and driven and passion about what you love and what you do,” she said. “You’ve taken this opportunity and continued to grow in each moment … [you’re] both winners. Everybody sees who you are, and there’s nothing that stops you at this point. This has been a platform for you that you’ve utilized! You’ve taken it, and people love you even more now.

So, who took home the title of The Voice? The youngest finalist ever, Brynn! Clarkson, a first time coach, won it all — and both were in tears!

Did ‘13 Reasons Why’ Season 2 Finale Go Too Far?

Warning: This story contains spoilers from the second season of 13 Reasons Why.

In the first season of 13 Reasons Why, nothing was held back. In the finale, Hannah’s (Katherine Langford) suicide scene was very graphic, causing a great deal of outrage from fans and parents who felt that it wasn’t necessary to show. On Friday, May 18, the second season was released on Netflix and fans are saying the same thing – this time about an assault scene.

After going away to receive help for his anger, Tyler (Devin Druid) returned to school with a new outlook. However, Monty (Timothy Granaderos) wasn’t over everything Tyler had done – basically, doing everything he could to get Bryce (Justin Prentice) to pay for assaulting women. Bryce told Monty to get over it, but he wouldn’t listen. Instead, he and his friends jumped Tyler in the bathroom, slamming his head against the mirror and the sink and pushing his face into the toilet multiple times. Monty then sexually assaulted him using a wooden broomstick, leaving Tyler bleeding out.

To say the scene was graphic would be an understatement. But was it necessary? After binging, some fans took to Twitter to share their feelings, claiming it was more about “shock value” than anything else.

“There was absolutely no need for that scene with Tyler in the last episode. Why did that need to be written in. 13 Reasons Why is problematic and that’s that,” one viewer wrote.

Another added, “AFTER THAT BRUTAL SCENE WITH THE MOP AND TYLER, THIS SHOW NEEDS TO BE CANCELLED. Obviously the people behind this show only gives a f—k about shock value and not about rape or suicide.”

Others felt it was important. “I agree that the Tyler’s moment in episode 13 was hard to watch.. but what happened is true and some people go through that s—t, so if you think that was too much to watch, take a second and think what others have felt and no one talks about it,” one fan wrote.

Another added: “All of y’all are pissed because Tyler got sodimized in with a broom #13ReasonsWhy2 .. but this happened at my former school to a kid I know. Multiple football players raped a 15-year-old boy with a broomstick. I heard about it I almost threw up. #13ReasonsWhy needed to show this.”

Selena Gomez, who is a producer on the show, spoke out following the first season of the show, responding to the fans who thought the suicide scene was too intense. “We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, [the backlash is] going to come no matter what,” she told the Associated Press last year. “It’s not an easy subject to talk about, but I’m very fortunate with how it’s doing.” None of the writers have spoken out about the season 2 finale.

In the beginning of season 2, the cast members take turn reading a warning message. “13 Reasons Why is a fictional series that tackles tough, real-world issues, taking a look at sexual assault, substance abuse, suicide, and more,” the warning says. “By shedding a light on these difficult topics, we hope our show can help viewers start a conversation. But if you are struggling with these issues yourself, this series may not be right for you or you may want to watch it with a trusted adult. And if you ever feel you need someone to talk with, reach out to a parent, a friend, a school counselor, or an adult you trust, call a local helpline, or go to 13ReasonsWhy.info. Because the minute you start talking about it, it gets easier.”

Specific episodes, including the finale, had an additional warning before the opening credits about sexual assault and drug use.

13 Reasons Why season 2 is currently streaming on Netflix.

If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

How ’13 Reasons Why’ Addresses Controversial Topics in Season 2

13 Reasons Why is a hard show to watch for a number of reasons. Both the Netflix drama and the book on which it is based deal with the issues of substance abuse, bullying, sexual assault, and suicide in detail — including showing Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) killing herself.

The first season faced a backlash from some mental health professionals and viewers for choosing to show Hannah’s suicide in such detail. Many thought the scene was gratuitous and glorified suicide. The show was also criticized for not doing enough to warn viewers of the graphic nature of the content or offering enough resources for those needing to seek help of their own.

For Season 2, Netflix has taken steps to address these concerns. They have added new videos and resources on how to find help and guides for parents on how to start conversations about the subjects the show tackles.

Starting the Conversation

Before fans can even start the new season of 13 Reasons Why, they are greeted by a video warning about the show’s content. In the video, the cast encourages teens to watch with an adult if they are worried about the issues depicted in the series. The actors also remind viewers that it is okay to ask for help and where they can find the help they need.

This is not the only new video for the season. Netflix also released a video titled “Tell Them” featuring the ways in which the show impacted two viewers, one who shared her own story of sexual assault and the other who was encouraged to start a program to stop bullying at her own high school. There will also be an after show called “Beyond the Reasons” that will include discussions with mental health professionals as well as the actors and producers going into more detail about the episodes. Netflix is using these videos to start conversations that will hopefully lead to more open discussions about mental health, sexual assault, suicide, and bullying.

Continuing the Dialogue

Hannah and her mother 13 Reasons Why

The main place fans are directed to find resources is the show’s website 13ReasonsWhy.info. It links to several organizations including the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the Trevor Project, and RAINN for further support and services. The website is listed at the end of each episode.

Also on the website is a downloadable discussion guide. It features questions and discussion topics for parents and educators to continue the dialogue started by the series. The guide will be updated for Season 2. It serves as good starting place for those who don’t know how to begin talking about some of these tough subjects.

It is important that Netflix is taking these steps to ensure viewers are safe and well informed about the programing they are watching. Hopefully 13 Reasons Why will continue to help people start conversations about real issues affecting teens today.

13 Reasons Why Season 2 premieres on May 18th.

The New Characters in ’13 Reasons Why’ Season 2 and the Impact They Could Make

Here’s the lowdown on the new characters you can expect to see in the new season of 13 Reasons Why, and how they could affect the show as it looks back at Hannah’s story.


Chloe enters the show associated with rapist Bryce Walker. The latest trailer suggests she could be his girlfriend. She’s head cheerleader and tries to befriend Jessica, one of Bryce’s victims in Season 1, recruiting her into the cheerleading squad.

Actress Anne Winters, who plays Chloe, told Pop Sugar that her character will cause “a bit of drama” and that she fits a “mean girl” stereotype.

She also said: “It’s funny because I always forget that all the episodes that we filmed are going to come out at the same time. So, in my head I’ve been thinking throughout the season people might have a different opinion of me, but if people binge-watch it then I feel like people will see the entirety of my character throughout the whole season in a day or two.”

This suggests that our attitude to Chloe will change as the season progresses. Could something happen to make us change our minds about her?


Samantha Logan-13 Reasons Why
Samantha Logan, seen here in Teen Wolf, joins the cast as track star Nina Jones.

New addition Nina is played by Samantha Logan who previously appeared in Teen Wolf. She’s on the school athletics team but there’s more to her than meets the eye. Will she reveal her secret and could it affect proceedings? A track star, she could well cross paths with cheerleaders Chloe and Jess.


Bryce Cass as Cyrus in 13 Reasons Why.

Cyrus is a punk-loving outsider at Liberty High who befriends fellow outcast, amateur photographer Tyler Down. Played by Bryce Cass, Cyrus is out to make mischief at the same time as acting as an advocate for the downtrodden. Will Cyrus help or hinder a new Tyler who seems to have developed a penchant for guns, as seen at the end of Season 1?


Chelsea Alden plays Mackenzie, sister to fellow newcomer Cyrus, in the new season.

Cyrus’s sister, Mackenzie is a young woman who plays by her own rules. Confident and forthright, she’s sharp and funny. She’s played by Chelsea Alden who you might know from American Horror Story: Roanoke. Her story will most likely tie in with her brother Cyrus and his new pal Tyler.

Barry and Nora Walker

13 Reasons-Walkers
Jake Weber and Brenda Strong play Bryce’s parents.

Season 2 introduces us to Bryce’s parents. There’s something off about this pair – who could give us an insight into why Bryce is the way he is. Barry, played by Jake Weber, earns a lot of money as a hedge fund manager, but his ethics seem questionable. Nora, meanwhile, played by Brenda Strong, is a woman who seems — on the surface anyway – pretty ruthless and intent on keeping up appearances. But how might she feel if she learns the truth about her rapist son? If Bryce ends up facing the consequences of his actions, plenty should be revealed about these two characters.

Justin Prentice, who plays Bryce, told Refinery 29: “I think [entitlement] is a part of who Bryce is, who Bryce’s father is and the background that he comes from. When you’re a part of a power family, in their eyes anyway, you’ve gotta do what you need to do to reach the top and stay on top.”


RJ Brown
RJ Brown plays Caleb.

Played by RJ Brown, Caleb is Tony’s boxing trainer, and is a fiercely competitive but also gentle and understanding. He helps Tony process his anger issues. Could the two become confidantes, or closer?


Allison Miller
Terra Nova's Allison Miller plays lawyer Sonya.

Joining Wilson Cruz’s Dennis in the courtroom is Allison Miller’s Sonya. She’s an ambitious lawyer who is wily and clever – and could bring Bryce to justice.


Designated Survivor's Ben Lawson plays sports coach Rick.

Played by Ben Lawson, Rick is the school baseball coach. He’s a sports teacher dedicated to supporting and protecting his rising baseball stars. The Australian actor, who had a long-running role in Aussie soap Neighbours, has appeared in a number of high-profile TV series including Billions, Grimm, Modern Family and Designated Survivor.


Meredith Monroe
Alex's mum makes an appearance this season.

Following what happens to Alex at the end of Season 1, it was perhaps inevitable we’d meet his mother in Season 2. She’s played by Dawson’s Creek actress Meredith Monroe. She’ll presumably help in his rehabilitation — as well as his mum, she’s also a nurse.


Jackie provides support for Hannah's mum.

An advocate for victims of bullying, Jackie, played by Kelli O’Hara, becomes involved in the Bakers’ legal case against the school, lending her support and counsel to Hannah’s mother.

13 Reasons Why Season 2 hits Netflix on May 18.

‘Braxton Family Values’ Recap: Season 6, Episode 3: ‘A Party That’s a Drag”

With this episode we find the Braxton sisters still in Las Vegas readying Toni Braxton’s big award day at the 2017 Soul Train Awards and her 50th birthday celebration. Daddy, Michael Braxton Sr., and brother, Michael Jr., are there too and ready to turn up at what’s supposed to be a fun party.

Frick and Frack, also known as Trina and Traci, really put their heads together to try to plan a fabulous birthday celebration that their sister would enjoy. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite work out that way. Toni shows up to the dinner expecting a wow effect once she enters but, that wow effect is not there – and neither is the entire family. Toni notices the absence of certain individuals and asks “Where is everybody else?”

Towanda’s missing because she has prior obligations with her stage play. Toni’s man, Birdman, isn’t there because he also has a show, and baby sis Tamar is still MIA, probably somewhere with an attitude after hearing what Ms. E said to TMZ.

Not only did Tamar not show up for her sister’s dinner but, she’s also still not answering nor returning anyone’s phone calls. She does however show up at the Soul Train Awards like everything is fine and dandy and even does a little three-second duet with Toni during her set.

We’ll get into the details of that in a minute but first let’s go back to this birthday party/dinner that’s a complete drag.

Trina and Traci come up with the theme “Toni Braxton Through the Ages” and decorate the room with several photos of Toni and her many looks throughout her career. There’s a photo of short hair Toni, long hair Toni, red hair Toni and Toni wearing that unforgettable risqué Grammy 2013 gown that left very little to the imagination. (OK Toni!)

In addition to the photos, both Traci and Trina pay homage to their sister by choosing one Toni style to portray at dinner. The only issue – Toni has no clue that’s what they’re doing.

Trina is sitting next to Toni wearing a short black wig, fishnet pantyhose, and a white collared shirt with a red jacket on the side. Toni thinks she’s going out to do a show or something and wonders why she’s dressed like that. Trina pulls out the picture of Toni’s “Breathe Again” cover art to show her the look she’s trying to mimic.

Then Traci explains her outfit, which is supposed to be a replica of Toni’s “You’re Makin’ Me High.” Judging from Toni’s facial expressions, Traci missed the mark.

The girls aren’t the only ones playing dress up at Toni’s party. When Daddy makes an announcement that he brought along with him a special surprise guest for Toni, things go from “Where is everybody?” to “You can’t be serious.”

Braxton Sr. gets up from the table and leaves the room to go get the guest, and in anticipation you almost think he’s going to surprise her with Birdman, Ms. Wanda (his wife), or even Tamar. But NOPE! Daddy comes back in the room dressed in full drag, wearing a flowered muu muu dress, pearls around his neck and a short blonde wig.

He’s supposed to be dressed as the girls’ grandmother (his mother), Mother Eva. Ummmm….alright Daddy!

Luckily, Mother Eva only stays for a moment and then exits the building. As nicely as she possibly could say it, Toni lets the girls know that her party was a bust. But, as Tamar would say, if she actually showed for the party – They Tried It!

‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’: Every Count Olaf Disguise in Season 2, Ranked

One of the greatest joys of Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events has been Count Olaf’s disguises. It’s the first time we’ve seen the nefarious actor’s extensive array of costumes brought to life on screen, and some serious attention to detail has made them a standout part of the series. Alongside Neil Patrick Harris’s sublime performance as the evil guardian intent on getting his hands on the Baudelaire fortune, of course.

Season 1 brought us the bearded Stephano and fishy Captain Sham but in Season 2, Olaf’s costumes have stepped up a gear. They’re dirtier, more degraded and infinitely more inventive. FANDOM spoke to series costume designer Cynthia Summers, who filled us in on what it took to bring Olaf’s legendary looks to the screen, and helped us compile this definitive ranking of Olaf’s S2 disguises.

5. Doctor Medicalschool

Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf in disguise as Dr Mattathias Medicalschool.

Doctor Mattathias Medicalschool might have the most ridiculously transparent name of all of Count Olaf’s personas – but his costume is the most practically convincing. Adopting the guise for episodes 7 and 8, which adapts the eighth book in Daniel Handler — aka Lemony Snicket’s — series of novels, The Hostile Hospital, Medicalschool marks Olaf’s latest attempt to dupe anyone who matters, and get his hands on the Baudelaire children, heirs to their parents’ fortune. Here, Olaf is attempting to pass himself off as the doctor in charge of the hospital.

Summers: “We used a faux leather strapping around his neck and his wrists to evoke a straightjacket, or something that’s very binding and a little bit maniacal. [It’s] just dark, because what doctor wears leather into the operating room? The front of his white outfit is obviously dirty; it’s never been cleaned. Our idea was that when they first drive up, there is this laundry truck outside the hospital and the idea is that they got all their disguises from the dirty laundry truck.

“A lot of the yellow that’s on it is pus. We didn’t want to have a lot of blood because we didn’t want to be super obvious and gory. So there’s no real blood. There’s some brown spots but we didn’t want red. So we went for yellow — the pussy, crusty sort of thing, which is more disgusting, as opposed to red-blood gory.

“We had a headpiece, the giant period magnifying glass on the front. That is partially to hide the unibrow and also to give a period vibe to it. You’ll notice too with him and his henchpeople, with some costumes and in particular this one, if you look farther down, Olaf has a base layer that doesn’t always come off. It’s that terrible, awful suit he wears all the time with that really disgustingly dirty and hole-ridden Henley he wears underneath. So if you look further down past the bottom of his operating gown you’ll see those trousers and his really funny pointy shoes with his too-short trousers underneath.”

4. Gunther

NPH as Olaf in disguise as Gunther, with Lucy Punch’s Esmé Squalor.

Olaf becomes Gunther, an auctioneer who teams up with Lucy Punch’s well-to-do Esmé Squalor, in The Ersatz Elevator. It’s the sixth book and is told across Episodes 3 and 4 of Season 2. Set in a New York-inspired city, Olaf needs to fit in with the upscale, fashion-obsessed world that Esmé inhabits and so Gunther is Olaf’s cleanest, most pulled-together look of the entire series.

Summers: “Gunther comes in [wearing] a paisley smoking jacket with jeans and crazy over-the-knee boots. Then Esmé gets her hands on him and we see him next in a pinstripe tailcoat suit. Neil’s hand on that was definitely the glasses. He wears a lot of glasses this season — it’s one way Olaf can disguise that eyebrow and that giant forehead he has.

ASOUE_Gunther dancing
Behind the scenes of a Gunther dance sequence.

“The gloves I had for Gunther originally were much more bejeweled; they were more like a Michael Jackson glove. But Neil totally toned that down. You’ll notice his nails are terrible all the time, so he asked for fingerless gloves. The over-the-knee boots were actually thigh high boots cut down. But that was mostly because of all the action and the dancing he had to do in that costume.

“There’s a nod to Karl Lagerfeld, obviously. As Season 2 goes along, it becomes more evident that Olaf and the troupe carry a trunk full of disguises. A lot of the reason that the disguises are so filthy and awful is because he’s a filthy awful person. All his disguises he’s stolen from theatres, or along the way, and just shoved everything into this Pandora’s box of costumes and disguises. So that speaks to why the costumes come out looking really shabby to begin with. And then just get worse.”

3. Coach Genghis

ASOUE_Coach Genghis
L-R: Coach Genghis with Carmelita Spats, his white-faced henchwomen, plus Roger Bart’s Vice Principal Nero and Matty Cardarople’s Henchperson of Indeterminate Gender.

Coach Genghis is the first disguise Olaf takes on in Season 2, in The Austere Academy, and it’s his attempt to become the replacement gym teacher at the school, following the previous coach’s disappearance.

Summers: “He steals his costume from the coach, who is a woman and a much different size than Olaf. That spoke to the fit of the tracksuit. It’s too small: the sleeves are too small, the pant legs are too short. All because it wasn’t meant for him.

“The first idea was a nylon tracksuit, something maybe more typical. But because Olaf is such a slimy guy and a creepy character it just seemed so right that he would have a velour tracksuit. And of course, he stole it off a woman that he, in essence, knocked out and perhaps killed. And the turban just becomes a part of his disguise. He sees one of the fabric pendants of the Academy and he wraps his head and makes it a turban. He’s got to cover up that eyebrow and that was the best he could come up with.

The Coach Genghis turban was actually one of many hats they made in consultation with turban experts.

“[Neil] fashioned himself after [motivational speaker Tony Robbins], as far as he’s always got his microphone on over his ear. His sneakers have wings on them and that sort of went with the 1980s velour hip-hop tracksuit vibe that we brought into it. We did have some gold chains on him for a heartbeat but then that went away because he got that really terrible whistle.

“[His costume] is also filthy. He’s always filthy and the Academy is decrepit, the adults in it are decrepit because they’re a fixture in the Academy. They’ve been there forever — except for the librarian who is new.”

2. Ringmaster

Olaf as the Ringmaster in The Carniverous Carnival.

The closing episodes of Season 2 cover the ninth book in the series, The Carniverous Carnival. In it, Olaf becomes a ringmaster.

Summers: “The ringmaster was difficult only in that American Horror Story had featured a carnival and The Greatest Showman was shooting at the same time that we were getting ready to do this book. So I really wanted to do something that wasn’t a traditional red carnival outfit.

“So we went with white [for the carnival suit], a little more traditional pinstripe blue, light blue, almost a seersucker pant and his white top hat. His striped vest matches the tenting at the circus.

“He’s not wearing glasses in this episode, but a hat to cover that monobrow. And white boots instead of black boots. They lace up at the front, they’re patterned and very pointy – they’re a little different in style for the era. Which fit really well with our timeless era. The inside of Olaf’s great coat is a starburst of yellow and red. Which ties in with our tenting, which also ties in with the vest. It was an incredibly labour-intensive costume but I think it was a really wonderful, dramatic way to end Season 2.”

1. Detective Dupin

Detective Dupin, with Esmé Squalor also in disguise.

In The Vile Village – tackled in Episodes 5 and 6 of the series – Olaf takes on the guise of a scatting detective. And it takes the number one spot on our list.

Summers: “It was not my favourite disguise for all of the month leading up to four days before camera. Detective Dupin is a scat-singing jazz detective in Vile Village which is a western-style, creepy kind of cultish town, with no kids. And Esmé, of course, who is posing as a detective as well. It was really hard to marry all of that with a look. And to have him look unique but not like he didn’t belong.

“That outfit had three renditions before we finally settled on what you see. We decided to lean on the late 1960s and early ‘70s really hard, and that sort of BeeGees [look], and even a little bit of The Beatles. His pants are really 1970s, above the waist, too tight in the crotch with a bell bottom and a white belt, although you can hardly tell because it’s so filthy. And then a super low-cut satin shirt with a really cropped purple leather jacket and inappropriate gold necklace. Then the jazz pork pie hat. He also had some really great 1970s Easy Rider-style sunglasses.

“It was a nail-biting experience for me. But when he stepped onto set in the morning – with the way he speaks and his toothpick, and his cocked hip and his way-too-tight pants — I was just like: ‘Detective Dupin in the flesh!’ It was a cheering and clapping moment because everyone knew we were down to the twelfth hour on this costume. Then we had to hurry up and make five more of them for the photo doubles and stunt doubles. That may be my favourite [of all the disguises].”

Who Is the Villain (Or Villains) of ‘Legion’ Season 2?

WARNING: This post contains spoilers for Legion Season 1. Proceed with caution.

Legion is returning and we have more than a few questions for this trippy show. But, one of the things fans are aching to know more about is the Shadow King. The Season 1 antagonist was revealed as the show went on, but we didn’t learn a whole bunch of details about his past or what his greater plans for David are.

Well, the second season is promising that and more when it comes to the show’s big bad. But, are there other enemies to look out for as well?

Amahl Farouk

Before we get to those other potential antagonists, let us touch on the Shadow King first. We learned that his true name is Amahl Farouk. Through a mental analysis from David Haller, we were told that Farouk battled David’s father, Charles Xavier, and was defeated by being banished to the Astral Plane.

As a method of revenge, Farouk eventually inhabited the mind of David when he was just a baby. Using his powers, Farouk took advantage of David and altered his memories so David would believe he was mentally ill instead of a highly powerful mutant. Farouk then took many different forms over the course of David’s life in order to either terrify or manipulate him.

We know that we’ll be seeing Farouk’s original form in Season 2, but it’s important to remember that his powers allow him to appear in many different guises. We’ll get back to that later because it could be a crucial hint ant where Season 2 is headed.

Division 3

It’s been revealed that Division 3, the government agency that was pursuing David and his friend during Season 1, will be returning in a very significant role. A year has passed since the end of Season 1 and it seems that the mutants are working with Division 3 to capture the Shadow King.

Within this organization is Clark, the interrogator who was burned by David in the previous season. Though he seems to be a shaky ally, it’s possible he could be revealed to have his own ulterior motives. Not to mention his husband Daniel, who surely feels some sense of revenge against the mutants who caused such grievous harm to his spouse.

With the mutants falling under Division 3’s roof, it’s possible we’ll see new Division 3 agents become antagonists. However, they might all fall victim to a greater threat…

Lenny Busker and the Legion

In Season 1, the Shadow King primarily took the form of Lenny Busker. At the end of Season 1, we see that Lenny has transferred her consciousness to Oliver Bird. Exactly what the relationship between her and Oliver is going to be will play out in Season 2. But, it raises a very interesting question about the show’s mythology.

In the comics, David Haller is a mutant with multiple personalities that live inside him. Each personality has its own set of mutant abilities. If we are going to see Amahl Farouk in his regular form, does this mean that Lenny is no longer the avatar for the Shadow King? Has she disconnected from him in some way? Is she one of David’s multiple mutant personalities?

If this is the case, it will be one of the first steps the show takes to showcasing this facet of David’s abilities. The only other scenes that have hinted at this are when David talks to a calmer version of himself that also speaks with a British accent. Could Season 2 finally begin to explore the idea of the many different identities hiding inside David’s mind?

If that’s the case, Lenny Busker could become her own separate villain from Amahl Farouk. Perhaps she is a figment Farouk created and some piece of his real self is still inside David? Could Lenny have been holding back all the other personalities hiding inside David? And if she’s been disconnected from Farouk, does she have her own plans for David?

There is a lot of ground to explore and we’re confident that Legion is going to be even bigger, better, and weirder than ever.

Legion airs Tuesdays 10/9c on FX.

Top Tips for Cottage Opening Season

Spring is finally here and for cottage owners, this time of year is perfect for opening the cottage! Start your cottage season right by following these tips and tricks from Saniflo:

  • Before you head to the cottage, especially if it’s a far drive away, make sure to check your car’s lights, tire pressure and fluids. If it needs a tune-up, take it in for servicing before your trip.
  • Assemble a car emergency kit, including first-aid items, water and other tools so that you’re always prepared in the event of a breakdown. Restock your emergency kit on a seasonal basis.
  • Make sure your boating and/or fishing license hasn’t expired. And, don’t forget to check that your boat trailer is in good working condition.
  • After arriving at the cottage, walk around and look for any signs of winter damage to the exterior. Check the electricity meter and look for any signs of faulty or chewed wiring from weather or pests before turning on your power.
  • Test your cottage smoke detectors and replace the batteries if needed before you fire up the barbeque for the season!
  • Examine your plumbing and look for signs of water damage in the kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms.

If you’re looking to repair or upgrade your cottage bathroom or kitchen, or add a laundry room for added convenience at your home-away-from-home, Saniflo’s range of plumbing systems are a great solution. All you need is a power supply and water!

Saniflo provides a wide array of simple, cost-effective renovation possibilities for cottagers no matter the situation. The Saniplus is perfect for installing full bathrooms, especially in cottage basements where you can’t drill down below the bedrock. For a laundry room install, the Saniswift can be used to pump waste water up and away from a washing machine and/or laundry sink.

5 Reasons Why Season 8 of ‘The Walking Dead’ Has Fans Fleeing

Ratings for the eighth season of The Walking Dead have dropped to first season levels, the lowest in the long-running franchise’s history.

And while the show is still among the most-watched on cable, what’s causing audiences to flee?

FANDOM breaks down five reasons why season eight of The Walking Dead has struggled.

1. Never-ending Conflict

AMC has branded the conflict between Rick Grimes and Negan as an all-out war, but it feels like a drawn-out war. That storyline lasted two full seasons, with both sides taking losses and no end in sight.

And while fan-favorite Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan has been fun to watch, his character is, well, problematic. Negan’s debut was savage and strong, but he’s basically become a caricature. If he had a mustache he’d be twirling it. Getting rid of Negan is the fastest and best way to get The Walking Dead back on track.

2. Too Many Characters

The all-out war has involved numerous factions: The Saviors, Alexandria, Hilltop, the Kingdom, the Scavengers, and Oceanside. And while it makes sense that a war has many players, jumping back and forth between each only drags out the plot. Take Oceanside for example. While we love the idea of an all-female community surviving on its own, the multiple visits have netted nothing but guns – guns that could’ve been found in a stash. And don’t even get us started on the Scavengers, who we can’t even understand.

3. Not Enough Zombies

The title of the show is The Walking Dead, but walkers have taken a back seat to human conflict. On one hand it makes sense. As time passes, communities come together, build walls, and amass weapons to fight the dead. But there’s been more attacks among the living. The undead threat, the horror element that once drove the show, is now gone.

4. Carl’s Death

War has many casualties. So when Carl – one of the original cast members – died of a walker bite instead of in a blaze of glory against Negan, fans felt cheated. Moreover, Carl represented two important things. The first was hope – the fact that a kid could grow up in a post-apocalyptic world and become a leader. The second was family. As Carl lay dying, Rick said everything he did was for him. Now that his son is gone, Rick has lost that motivation.

5. Broken Families

As we just mentioned, family and bonds are important to The Walking Dead. Carl’s death not only ended a father-son relationship, but also the caring mother-son relationship he had with Michonne, and his burgeoning romance with Enid. These were relationships the show built up and fans were invested in. The same could be said about Glenn and Maggie. Even relationships between newer characters – like Aaron and Eric, and Tara and Denise – ended before they are developed. When the show loses those bonds, it loses viewers.
