Watching The Bold Type is like hanging out with your best girlfriends—only their drama is way more fun.

Sutton has an accessories shoot for Oliver and Kat guilts her into hiring Adena (Nikohl Boosheri)—ooh honey, love and work don’t always mix and sometimes when the do they go BOOM. So basically, grab a glass of Patron and the comfiest seat in the house because chaos is sure to ensue.
Sutton is in an awkward position when she is put in charge of hiring a photographer for an accessories shoot and Kat asks her to hire Adena. Jane follows around a cute and altruistic doctor named Ben for her latest article. Scarlet’s newest board member Cleo causes Jacqueline to defend her role at the magazine.

Only two weeks of The Expanse season 3 are left and things are getting intense. We’re still trying to wrap our heads around last week’s episode—we got to see Holden (Steven Strait) backed into a corner and hot damn, no wonder he’s gone off the deep end… We’re on the edge of the edge of our seats as we watch the crew try to survive everything that’s being thrown at them and man, our nerves might be too high to even enjoy our popcorn (MIGHT be*).
Drummer and Ashford find themselves trapped with few options for survival. Anna tends to the wounded masses as Melba continues to hunt down her prey. The Rocinante crew struggle to survive as Naomi reunites with her true family.

MARVEL’S LUKE CAGE

“This season [of Marvel’s Luke Cage] is crafted beautifully, interweaving music, history, politics, and Pan-Africanism with liberal dabs of real life black-American heroes, and the Harlem Renaissance. One of the joys of this season is the leading character: HARLEM. While dealing with internal conflicts, and adding some comic relief, Cheo Hodari Coker anchors the story in Harlem—it couldn’t be told anywhere else. The feel of the city is tactile and grounded in a sense of purpose. It drives the story and our characters, adding more depth, to leave you breathless.” (read our full S2 [p]Review here) Tune into Geek Girl Riot’s interview with Coker tomorrow night and binge the entire season on Friday!
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
US & THEM

Fate is a wonderful thing, folks, and so are Netflix originals. Their new film Us & Them takes us through ten years of a relationship—ups, downs, breakups, and reuniting included. You can taste the bittersweet candor with every glance, every chance meeting, in every note of the piano-led soundtrack. Rather than your typical Hollywood romance Us & Them is love in all its forms, from beginning to end, which in itself captures that warm and fuzzy sentiment of how real relationships play out.
10 years ago, during the hectic chunyun period, 2 strangers traveling home meet on the train, what follows is a journey of realizing their dreams, love, breakups. 10 years later, these not so strangers were reunited on a plane. Starring Jing Boran (Lin Jianqing) and Zhou Dongyu (Fang Xiaoxiao), and from award-winning actress and first time director, René Liu, Us & Them launches on the service June 22.

Preacher is back and our intrepid crew are headed to Angelville. Comics fans, y’all know what’s up—for the rest of you, this means a family reunion. If you ever thought your relatives were bad, Jesse’s (Dominic Cooper) are ten times worse…and then triple it. Just when you think Preacher can’t get any more ridiculous it ups the ante and introduces homicidal, slightly magical (read: witchy) Gran’ma who has the ability to resurrect people…among other things. Um, yeah. This is an out of the frying pan into the fire moment for Jesse. And of course Tulip is going to have to straighten it out. We’re joining Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) in lighting up a cigarette from the flames because this is one spectacular Greek tragedy deep in the heart of Louisiana. Come get your consomme! (…or maybe don’t…we’re gonna go with don’t.)
In an effort to save Tulip, Jesse and Cassidy take her to Jesse’s family home, Angelville. Jesse reunites with the people he fears most: his family.
