‘The Real World’ Turns 30: See Headline-Making Moments From the MTV Show

‘The Real World’ Turns 30: See Headline-Making Moments From the MTV Show
What happens when people stop being polite and start getting real? Reality TV drama that is groundbreaking, eye-opening, and often uncomfortable. MTV’s The Real World became a cultural phenomenon when it launched 30 years ago, on May 21, 1992. And viewers watched transfixed as various housemates navigated love and independence on the show, while contending with illness, addiction, bigotry, and violence. With The Real World’s 30th anniversary upon us — and as The Real World Homecoming: New Orleans releases new episodes on Paramount+ — revisit major moments from the seminal reality show below. Julie and Kevin fight about racism in The Real World: New York In what Kevin Powell later called “the most famous argument in American TV history on race and racism,” he and Julie Gentry debated racial bias on the streets of Soho, with Julie claiming that racism is everywhere only because of people like him. “Get off the white-black thing,

Kingdom Business Recap: Sex, Lies and Michael Beach Being a Menace — Plus, Grade the Season So Far

Kingdom Business Recap: Sex, Lies and Michael Beach Being a Menace — Plus, Grade the Season So Far
Kingdom Business is in the business of making messy television, and I’m here for it. The gospel drama, which is now streaming on BET+, features a charcuterie board of gripping drama: murder, blackmailing, strippers, sex scandals, dramatic slaps, a killer soundtrack and Michael Beach being trifling.

The show follows Denita Jordan (played by legendary gospel singer Yolanda Adams), the Queen of Gospel Music at First Kingdom Church and Kingdom Records in Atlanta. Despite her many successes, her label is on the brink of financial ruin, and her newest album isn’t pulling in enough funds to keep it afloat.

‘Bel-Air’ Star Jabari Banks’ Big Plans: Becoming a Rap Star and Eventually Opening His Own Disneyland
Jabari Banks remembers the exact date that his favorite actor, Chadwick Boseman, passed away. It was August 28, 2020, and Banks was working at a factory in Temecula, Calif., doing a temp job wrapping gutters. Yes, that is a job that Banks had just a year before getting his big break as the star of Peacock’s “Bel-Air.”

But back to the factory. “My mom got me a temp job, so I flew from Philly to Temecula where they paid for our housing, our transportation, our food and everything. Super sketchy.” He was staying in the hotel when he got the news of Boseman’s death.

Can anyone survive the Upside Down? That’s a question not many know the answer to. However, creators Matt and Ross Duffer have divulged the “Stranger Things” ending to a lucky few — including star David Harbour.

“I think it varies from person to person, from character to character, and I’m such a harassment specialist that I think I’ve gotten it out of them. It’s been back and forth about like, ‘What happens to Hopper? Is he a character that’s able to survive Hawkins or does he die?'” Harbour tells Variety. “I know what happens and it’s quite moving,

‘Love, Death & Robots’: The Best Episodes of Netflix’s Animated Series

‘Love, Death & Robots’: The Best Episodes of Netflix’s Animated Series
Anthologies always carry with them a little bit of risk. It’s a steep task to come up with a definable, overarching theme to hold together contributions from different artists, each with their own diverging sensibilities. Fortunately, when you have a title like the Netflix animated series “Love, Death & Robots,” that does most of the heavy lifting.

But another major challenge with anthologies is that, inevitably, some parts of the collection will be more successful than others. They’ll be better focused or more sprawling, denser in their atmosphere or equipped with enough space for the story it’s telling to breathe. The exciting thing about “Love, Death & Robots” is that it has the potential to let its many different creative teams expand their own ideas.

As we’ve written in our reviews of Season 1 and Season 2, this Netflix show hasn’t always capitalized on that promise. Yet,

Who Killed Sara? Recap: Alex Gets Answers — Grade the Final Season!

Who Killed Sara? Recap: Alex Gets Answers — Grade the Final Season!
The challenge of Who Killed Sara? Season 3 was introducing a villain even more evil than Cesar and Mariana Lazcano. That’s what Jean Reno’s sadistic Reinaldo was supposed to be.

Reinaldo was proof that for all the cruel and vicious acts Cesar and his wife committed — including murder, statutory rape and sex trafficking — this wackadoo doctor, with his antiquated aversion therapy methods for “curing” homosexuality, was far worse. That’s because Reinaldo was a puppet master who, as it turns out, was so powerful and prophetic that he orchestrated not only Alex’s friendship with Rodolfo and Chema, but

‘Better Call Saul’: Did the Series Reveal Kim Wexler’s Fate?

‘Better Call Saul’: Did the Series Reveal Kim Wexler’s Fate?
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for Season 6, Episode 6 of Better Call Saul, “Axe and Grind.”] Better Call Saul may center around Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and his criminal lawyering persona, Saul Goodman, but the show’s most absorbing question has become: What is going to happen to Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn)? Serving as a prequel to Breaking Bad, it’s apparent from what we’ve been shown so far that Kim doesn’t seem to have a presence in Saul’s life during the events of the original series. In Better Call Saul‘s final season opener, the show focused on the raid on Saul’s home following his disappearance in Breaking Bad‘s final season timeline. (Credit: Greg Lewis/AMC/Sony Pictures Television) As the house is picked through, it’s clear that all remnants or signs of Kim are nonexistent except for one small token: the elaborate tequila topper she kept a token for their relationship.

‘Obi-Wan’ Director Deborah Chow Compares Series to ‘Character-Driven’ Films ‘Joker’ and ‘Logan’

‘Obi-Wan’ Director Deborah Chow Compares Series to ‘Character-Driven’ Films ‘Joker’ and ‘Logan’
May the standalone superhero films be with you.

Disney+ series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” marks the return of Ewan McGregor in the titular role, but director Deborah Chow promises the series is more like other IP films rather than previous “Star Wars” installments.

“I think I was the most excited about getting the opportunity to do a character-driven story, in a similar way – it’s a different tone – but something like ‘Joker’ or ‘Logan,’ where you take one character out of a big franchise and then you really have the time and you go a lot deeper with the character,” Chow said at a press conference, as reported by Games Radar. “So, that to me seemed really exciting to get to do in ‘Star Wars.'”

Obi-Wan Kenobi,” premiering May 27, takes place between films “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope,” with Obi-Wan hiding out in Tatooine and observing a young Luke Skywalker.
