Raised on a healthy diet of equal parts Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Family Matters, and The X-Files, Anisha has been an avid TV watcher since she was probably too young to be. Due to her extensive knowledge of television shows, past and present, she's killer at pop culture trivia and doles out TV recommendations to anyone who asks. A midwestern transplant living in the Texas, you can find her explaining to strangers that Pawnee isn't a real place in Indiana and trying to convince others that the rival high school from Glee was based on her high school (really!).

Game of Thrones “Dragonstone”

Historically, the season premieres of each season of Game of Thrones ends up a little thin. And by thin, I mean that bringing the audience up to speed on all of the storylines in this show is a daunting task, and the result is that these episodes can feel void of heft, […]

Three Things We Want to See in Game of Thrones Season 7

And we’re back! It’s been a long 12 months since the finale of season six of Game of Thrones aired. We ended last season with the nearly perfect “The Winds of Winter” (and we highly suggest reading the review of it as a refresher).

Jasmin Savoy Brown Talks The Leftovers Series Finale, TNT’s Will

HBO’s The Leftovers ended its brilliant three-season run last week, with an achingly tender, but ambiguous ending to the story of what happens when two percent of the world’s population disappears without explanation.

The Leftovers Series Finale “The Book of Nora”

I’ve been equally full of dread and excitement when it came to watching the series finale of The Leftovers. The excitement part is obvious; we all want to know how it ends. But the dread was two-fold.

The Leftovers Series Finale Preview: “The Book of Nora”

Last week’s “The Most Powerful Man in the World (and his Identical Twin Brother)” gave us clarity on Kevin’s purpose on The Leftovers, and the series finale, aptly titled “The Book of Nora” (remember, the season premiere was called “The Book of Kevin”), is set to tell Nora’s story.

The Leftovers “The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother)”

The final season of The Leftovers has worked to slowly disassemble everything we thought was true coming out of an unexpected, bright, and even hopeful, season two. The tonal change from the dark despair of season one’s Mapleton, NY to the golden gospel of season two’s Miracle, TX was drastic, […]

The Leftovers “G’Day Melbourne”

You can tell you have an exceptional show on your hands when it’s able to churn out an episode that mostly exists to bridge two locations, but also ends up the best one of the season so far.

The Leftovers “Crazy Whitefella Thinking”

I’ve previously written about how significant the role of denial is in The Leftovers. This show is filled to the brim with characters eager to believe in anything to prop up whatever lies they tell themselves to get through their suffering. Denial does more than offer a way to cope […]

The Leftovers “Don’t Be Ridiculous”

The Leftovers has never shied away from showing the absurdity of life. Life by definition is weird as hell. Things happen, sometimes silly weird things, like the baby jesus doll disappearing from the town nativity scene or an unfindable cricket taking up residence in your kitchen.
