I have a long history of randomly stumbling onto a tv show and binge-watching it…Fringe, Dark Matters, Zoo, Harlots (just to name a few). The last binge session involved a little show called “Claws,” which premiered this past summer on TNT in the United States. It’s about a crew of women who run a nail salon and launder money for a local drug cartel run by “Uncle Daddy.” I don’t want to give too much away, but here’s three damn good reasons you should give this show a try.

This spring’s MCM Comic Con, held at the ExCel in London, welcomed 122,634 visitors over the course of the weekend, making it larger by 10,000 visitors than the previous convention held last October. Last time I attended, I was merely an attendee–there for the fun and cosplay. This spring, I attended as a member of the press with all that perks that entailed: namely, spending most of my Saturday in the press room with twenty other reporters, trying to get the attention of celebrities. While it is difficult to make oneself heard in such a crowd in such a short time period (each interview session lasted approximately 20 minutes), it quickly became apparent that most of us news outlets had a common mission: to emphasize diversity and inclusion in mainstream media and culture.
