Bright and its sequel, Bright:Samurai Soul, are two of the best things on Netflix (after Arcane).
The Mummy’s Evie. This strong, smart, flawed, seductress is the kind of heroine that’s desperately needed today.

Justin Watson and Monalisa Foster discuss episode one of Shadow and Bone based on Leigh Bardugo’s YA Fantasy series.
Outlander season six delivers tension and intrigue despite its abrupt ending.
Shadow and Bone. Bardugo gets it right. Depth, characters, and well-written. I can see why it’s such a hit.
Story needs more than witticism and a neat idea. Why Lost City fails to deliver on its promise.
Diamond Eye by Kate Quinn is a recommended read. It gets so much right, including what it what was like to survive under the abomination of communism.
