Hyppolyta

Listen. If you have one. single. drop. of Black Girl Magic running through your veins, this was the episode for you! (Hyppolyta even said my name!)

Trump Paid $750 in Taxes and Now I Gotta Figure Out How To Become a Rich White Man

Here is what I’m thinking. Ya’ll know how Steve Rogers became Captain America? You know, he got into some chamber, they injected him with some super human cocktail bullshit, and then boom, he can beat up helicopters and shit?

In the case of many victims of unjust brutality or murder at the…

Lovecraft Country – Meet Me in Daegu (S1E6)

We’ve finally met Ji-Ah in the midst of her existence during the Korean war. Initially, I felt like something was off about her. She’s child-like, socially awkward, and is obsessed with musicals. (I can relate to that last one. Don’t judge me.) Surely, this can’t be the woman Tic spoke to on the phone……
