Although it is a work of fiction in the fantasy genre, one element that can be lauded in Game of Thrones is its vivid representation of reality.
As we sit in summer of 2016, we know next to nothing. Here are currently the only confirmed facts I have been able to gather about the upcoming season of “American Horror Story.”
How could he watch a show wherein women are raped, sexually assaulted, beaten and so on? And worse still, how can so many men and women for that matter, defend the show? Or laughably, claim it is empowering to women?
The season 6 premiere starts off with the best and most important part of the show: The face of my future boyfriend, or as some of you call him, Jon Snow. Unfortunately, Jon is dead, and he stays that way for the rest of the episode. Still, I’m hopeful that he’ll come back to life eventually.
“I don’t want to do things. I want to not do things.”
“The Princess Bride!!! I watch it whenever I’m sick, or just feeling kind of down.”
Hollywood still hasn’t had a “come to Jesus” moment on the harshness of black life in America.
“Well, after giving it a lot of thought, I have ALSO decided to join the Gilmore Girls reboot. Somebody should probably tell them.”
Every episode leaves me cringing, and I can’t help but imagine how the show would differ had it been written by someone who refused to settle for clichéd notions of gender conformity.
