the handmaid’s tale review

(We’re going to kickstart our weekly The Handmaid’s Tale review by answering one simple question: Who suffered the most?)

Praise be, The Handmaid’s Tale is back. Who’s ready for some soul-crushing entertainment?

The second season of the harrowing Hulu series returned yesterday with a two-episode premiere, “June,” and “Unwoman.” I’ll be recapping the events of both in my first weekly spoiler review of this season (though check out my spoiler-free review of season 2 as well).

‘Double Dare’ is Coming Back to Nickelodeon

Double Dare Reboot

Nickelodeon continues to dig back into their library of programming from decades ago for shows they can bring back for a new (and old) audience. They previously brought back a bunch of their old programming from that decade for a block called The Splat. Then they decided to make TV movies for both Hey Arnold! and Rocko’s Modern Life (which is coming sometime this year). More recently, they decided to reboot Clarissa Explains It All. But now they’ve turned to their game show programming for some nostalgia.

Nickelodeon has announced their beloved game show Double Dare will return to the cable network for kids with all-new episodes this summer. So brush up on your trivia, and get ready for some slimy, sticky physical challenges. Read More »
