Stranger Things Review: “PG-13 Stuff Can Still Creepy”
Everything about Stranger Things is cool, and it’s not just hype, I promise. From their make-a-gif website to the really interesting episode titles that tell a story in themselves, the Netflix original series, Stranger Things has taken genre television to an entirely new dimension and I love it.

The Get Down Review: “The Bronx was Out of Control in the 70s”
This musical and visual masterpiece, brought to us by Baz Luhrmann, details the birth of hip hop culture in the South Bronx, set in the summer of 1977. There is disco and grafitti art, afros and clear racial and class lines drawn between the burroughs. The Get Down is a thoughtful and relatable coming of age narrative that nails the tensions of black youth in America.

Peaky Blinders Season 1 Review: “Great Show With A Weird Name”
Set in Birmingham, England, just after World War I, “Peaky Blinders” tells the story of the Shelby family, the driving force behind the criminal gang called the Peaky Blinders. The main protagonist is Tommy Shelby, played by the always fascinating Cillian Murphy, who is taking the reins of the family from his older brother, Arthur, and building a new criminal empire. Standing in his way is Chief Inspector Chester Campbell, played by Sam Neill, a Northern Irish police officer brought to Birmingham specifically to clean up the city. To say that C.I. Campbell strongly dislikes the Shelby family, and Tommy in particular, would be a gross understatement.
