I literally don’t know what we’re supposed to make of How to Get Away with Murder‘s season finale, except for these facts:
Lucious Lyon is a big hypocrite. I think what I’m writing has been painfully obvious from the beginning of Empire, but this episode, “The Lyon’s Roar,” clearly shows in stark detail how much of a hypocrite Lucious is. He tells Jamal to sing his truth, and then gets mad when that truth isn’t what he wants it to be.
This week on Fresh Off the Boat, we revisit the ’90s trend of fajitas! Personally, I don’t remember this trend, but then again, I didn’t go to a lot of restaurants as a kid—we didn’t eat out a lot. So if you were a person who frequented Chili’s or TGI Fridays, then maybe you remember when the fajita craze got started. To tell you the truth, the fajita craze still seems around, what with the sizzling pans you can still get at Chili’s. Anyways, the recap.
We all know Ava DuVernay should have been nominated for a directorial Oscar, but the Oscars sought fit to deny her what she’s owed. One anonymous voter even said that Selma didn’t have any art in it (paraphrasing).
If you’re looking for a new webseries to get addicted to, keep an eye on Munkey in The City. The upcoming webseries is written by Michael Nguyen and stars Kenny Leu as Munkey, a guy trying to make it as a writer while figuring out what it is he really wants out of life.
I was excited to discuss the webseries with Nguyen; in this email interview, we discussed the webseries itself as well as the state of Hollywood when it comes to the (lack of) Asian representation.

Can there be a course to teach folks in the limelight how to think before they speak? Of course, I’m lumping all celebs and entertainment figures together unfairly; there are many out there who do think before they speak. But there also seem to be quite a few who don’t. We can now count Giuliana Rancic among them.
Grace Dixon, in her infinite wisdom, said, “Sometimes, all it takes is to put pen to paper to make a difference.” I feel like whoever wrote this line wrote it with their tongue in their cheek.
There have been all sorts of things happening this season of Sleepy Hollow because someone put their pen to paper, but while there have been a lot of good, there’s been a heck of a lot of bad, chief among them Katrina and Henry weighing down Ichabod’s storyline. But while “Kali Yuga” got rid of Hawley and “Awakening” saw the death of Henry, “Tempus Fugit” rights the last wrong left standing—Katrina. This difference is one that can be felt like a wave throughout the Sleepy Hollow fandom. I’m still in shock that the writing staff actually did it.
Let’s thank goodness that we’re almost done with this season of Downton Abbey, because I’d seriously start hate-watching in earnest otherwise.
I’ve been following Sleepy Hollow since the beginning (from my first website, Moniqueblog.net), so I’ve followed the fans ups and downs, whether it came to the first Ichabbie hug or when Katrina finally got out of Purgatory. I’ve loved seeing what meta critiques the fans have, and, to be fair, I’ve tried to do my part to stop needless worry about upcoming storylines, whether I helped or not. To say the least, my relationship with the fandom has become as layered as a relationship with fandom can become. Today, I’m writing this piece to give the Sleepy Hollow fandom the props they deserve.
