Hulu had a big night at the Emmys last month by taking home the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, beating Netflix to the punch with their series A Handmaid’s Tale. While Hulu has every intention of continuing to expand their original programming slate, they’re also dipping back into the library of nostalgic TV from the 1990s.
Sitcoms like Full House, Family Matters and Step by Step were recently made available on Hulu in their entirety, and now even more of the shows from ABC’s beloved TGIF line-up from the 1990s are coming to the streaming service. Boy Meets World, Home Improvement and the positively goofy series Dinosaurs are all available on Hulu now. Read More »

After rumors swirled last week that Girl Meets World hadn’t been renewed for a fourth season, Disney Channel has made it official.
The spin-off of the ABC sitcom Boy Meets World will be coming to an end when the third season finale airs later this month. The good news is that it seems like the writers weren’t completely blindsided by this decision, and the final episode will have a somewhat proper send-off for fans who will be sad to see it go.

A couple of years ago, during a surge of nostalgic revival of shows from decades past, The Disney Channel brought Girls Meets World to air. The comedy series is a follow-up to the ABC sitcom Boy Meets World from the 1990s, which followed best friends Cory (Ben Savage) and Shawn (Rider Strong) as they grow up into young men and learn life lessons from their teacher Mr. Feeny (William Daniels). Girl Meets World follows that same formula, but instead it follows Cory’s daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) as they navigate adolescence as young girls, learning some of the same lessons, but entirely new ones as well.
While the sequel series has brought back several cast members from Boy Meets World in recurring guest roles, it has never seen the kind of reunion that was teased in a cast photo featuring all of the primary players from Boy Meets World united with the cast of Girl Meets World. Check out the photo after the jump. Read More »

Wow. After watching The Carter, the new all-access documentary on Lil’ Wayne, one might consider recommending it as the best doc about a hip hop icon ever. The problem with this superlative lies in its limitation. Similar to labeling Lil’ Wayne a rapper—even “the best rapper alive” as many profess—and leaving it at that, labeling this a great hip hop doc restricts it to the confines of a niche or genre coated in personal taste and stigmas. That is to say The Carter is foremost a fascinating portrait of a remarkable, modern artist and celebrity who has cooked most if not all bridges for comparison.
In The Carter we experience the exact moment when Wayne calmly finds out, overseas and perma-high, that his latest album, Tha Carter III, has sold one million plus physical units in its first week. As his friend and manager, Cortez Bryant, tells the camera, Wayne now undisputedly ranks with the world’s top pop stars; and this doc ranks with the best of the year. It’s also highly difficult to cite precedent for a film so privy to a superstar’s love of, and possible dependency on, drugs. Clearly, the recent, This Is It, failed in this regard.
