Does '13 Reasons Why' Do More Harm Than Good? The Debate Rages On…

A new study offers evidence that 13 Reasons Why may heighten suicide risk among young viewers, and that new development has reignited questions that have plagued the Netflix series from its release two years ago: Does the series glamorize suicide? Does it unwittingly encourage “suicide contagion,” or copycat suicides? And why didn’t the first season include positive portrayals of productive mental health support?

Is There Hope of Seeing Netflix's Marvel Superheroes Again?

If Netflix’s cancellation of Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil last fall was a critical hit to fans of Marvel TV shows, its cancellation of Jessica Jones and The Punisher this week was a kill shot.

How Disney's Fox Takeover Will Affect Your TV Viewing

Hillsong Church views homosexuality as a ‘lifestyle,’ and frankly, that’s all we need to know

In an Instagram post on February 11, Chris Pratt refuted Ellen Page’s recent claims that Hillsong, his church and that of many other Hollywood types, is “infamously anti-LGBTQ.” In his caption, he gave high praises to Hillsong. Trouble is, we’re just not buying them. “It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ,’” the Jurassic World star wrote. “Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.” Ahem. We daresay a great many things could be “further from the truth” than Page’s assertion.
