Cry of the week: Offred loses her family on 'The Handmaid's Tale'

TwitterFacebook

There’s a lot to admire about The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s chilling novel. For months, the show promised a rich dystopia punctured by seeds of resistance — but what we didn’t count on was the emotional punch of seeing how things got so bad in the first place.

In the pilot episode, Offred (Elizabeth Moss) flashes back to the beginnings of the society she now inhabits. She’s on the run with her husband Luke and daughter Hannah, and a harrowing opening sequence shows them fleeing to safety — and failing, as they inevitably must.

TwitterFacebook

If there’s anyone that’s got jokes, it’s the Reynold-Lively family. 

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds attended the TIME 100 Gala—an annual celebration that coincides with the magazines’ list of 100 activists, artists, and icons. Reynolds was being honored amongst other influencers, but if Instagram is anything to go by, Lively was there to celebrate someone else other than her husband: John Legend.

20 years later, Ellen's coming out episode remains one of the best in television history

TwitterFacebook

It’s almost impossible to remember a time when Ellen DeGeneres — the inoffensive pastel-palette comedian beloved by Pantsuit Nation moms and Holiday Inn lounges everywhere — was actually something of a radical.

On April 30, The Ellen DeGeneres Show will commemorate the 20th anniversary of ”The Puppy Episode,” the comedian’s landmark two-part coming out episode from her television series Ellen. At the time, anticipatory anxiety about the episode, which ultimately attracted 42 million viewers, reached such an intensity that the network decided to slap a spectacularly patronizing ”parental advisory” warning on it.   Read more…

Take a wild guess what Trump's favorite hashtag was in his first 100 days

TwitterFacebook

Hint: Look at the woman’s hat in the photo, above. 

President Donald Trump has been in office 100 days as of Saturday, April 29. In honor of the occasion, Twitter put out some stats about the president’s use of Twitter. At this point, you really should have guessed his favorite hashtag: #MAGA. 

That acronym, of course, is short for Trump’s ”Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The president also used a lot of #AmericaFirst, #USA, #Obamacare and, because he’s just like a bunch of reporters on Twitter, #ICYMI.
