Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is Warner Bros.’ next play at keeping the Harry Potter franchise going, and it’s got a lot going for it. Not only will it be a magical film starring current British It Boy Eddie Redmayne, but it’ll also be a period film, set in the 1920s. Everyone loves a good period film, and I’m sure everyone loves a supernatural period film even more. But I’ve got some questions about this film. Perhaps you do too. Here are three of mine.
Fresh Off the Boat‘s latest episode, “Shaquille O’Neal Motors,” feels like the show’s first real stab at story continuity, and it’s a welcome addition. It was fun hearing the funny moments from the first season come back around in this episode. More like this, please.
The past three fall TV seasons have been amazing in terms of Stage 1 in Addressing Diversity in Entertainment. We’ve seen breakout shows like Sleepy Hollow (in it’s first season; for coverage on last season and the present one, click here), How to Get Away with Murder, Jane the Virgin, Elementary, the continuation of Scandal‘s dominance, etc., etc. But there something these shows, and other shows this season including Minority Report and Quantico have in common; they all include women of color with white men. What’s with that?
It’s not a surprise that America’s getting tired of the Kardashians. We’ve had to endure what started out as a relatively harmless reality show for over a decade. It’s now turned into a monster for many different reasons, and Cosmopolitan just added to the Kardashian Hate Machine with their new cover, proclaiming the Klan as “America’s First Family.” To which Twitter responded, “But what about the actual First Family, the Obamas”?
The upcoming film Suffragette seems like it’s about to become the higher-budget Stonewall, in that even though it’s bound to be an Oscar bait movie, it’s going to whitewash the truth about pioneers in the civil rights sphere yet again.

If you regularly read COLOR, then you’ll know that I recently had a Sleepy Hollow Periscope event Friday. The jist of the event consisted of me discussing my views on the first episode as well as some behind-the-scenes stuff that’s really got in my craw over the summer. I didn’t actually mean to discuss that, but when the camera’s on you, you never know what’s going to come out of your mouth.
We already know Jidenna’s a “Classic Man,” but if we needed confirmation that he was also Prince Charming, now we’ve got it, thanks to these pictures from All Things Ankara.
