New HBO Show ‘The Time Traveler’s
Wife’

Based on the best selling novel by Audrey Niffenegger, ‘The Traveler’s Wife’ has turned
into a HBO hit show. Starring famous actors such as Theo James and Rose Leslie, the
show retells the story from the famous novel, taking us through the ups and downs of
being the wife of a time traveler.

The HBO series tells the story of Henry DeTamble, who is played by James, a Chicago
librarian who has a major secret…he can travel through time. When he comes across a
young adult woman named Clare Abshire, his whole world goes into a turn. Although
Claire recognizes him, Henry has no idea who she is. This is because future Henry was
the one who went back in time to visit Claire when she was a toddler. The Henry that
Claire meets in the middle of the library has yet to travel back in time and meet past
Claire.

Claire tells Henry about their multiple encounters back when she was a child, and Henry
(who is in his late 20’s and is extremely immature) sits back and listens.

Now, who is the cast of this show? Like I said, the two main stars are Theo James and
Rose Leslie.

You might recognize James from hit movies like ‘Divergent’ and his early appearance in
‘Downton Abbey.’ Although James had already made his big breakthrough in the
‘Divergent’ movie series, ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ has put his name back onto
headlines.

As for actress Rose Leslie, many viewers can probably recognize her as Ygritte from
‘Game of Thrones.’ Before her big breakthrough, Leslie played housemaid turned

secretary Gwen in ‘Downton Abbey,’ and was also seen in CBS legal drama ‘The Good
Fight’. In cinemas, Leslie has recently played the role of maid Louise Bourget in
Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Death on the Nile’

Although the show is slightly confusing with all the time travel involved and how past
Henry can travel in time to talk to current Henry, the show makes it easy to follow the
storyline.

Still in its first season, the show has told the love story of Claire and Henry in a beautiful
manner. It shows the complications that come with being in love with a time traveler, as
well as how hard it is to actually be a time traveler. All in all, it’s a great show.

    The Era of the Cop Show is Over

    From Law and Order to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, police procedurals and cop comedies have been a staple in the entertainment industry since the successful debut of 1981 police drama Cagney & Lacey. These shows have a lengthy history of eulogizing law enforcement, often presenting an unchallenged view of their work in a way that doesn’t reflect the reality of the criminal justice system. But after the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement as a response to the ongoing problem of police brutality against African Americans, increased public scrutiny surrounding police has called into question the necessity of cop shows–which are now popularly referred to as “copaganda”. But I think the answer to everyone’s question regarding their relevance has already been answered by the American people at large: cop shows have officially run their course.

    Trevor Noah is Leaving the Daily Show: Here’s Why

    After seven years of hosting Comedy Central’s Daily Show Trevor Noah announced on Thursday that he will be leaving the program shortly. The announcement came as a shock to many viewers along with Comedy Central itself. In the episode celebrating his 7th anniversary, he expressed nothing but gratitude for the time he spent as the host,“I’ve loved hosting this show. It’s been one of my greatest challenges and one of my greatest joys. I’ve loved trying to figure out how to make people laugh even when the stories are particularly shitty on the worst day but after seven years I feel like its time.”

    TV Review: Why I Love The Vampire Diaries

    This show (including the people that were a part of it!) has been my favorite show ever since I randomly saw it on TV in 2009. I was 9 years old, which is way too young to have watched it, but I couldn’t help myself when I realized how wonderfully put-together the plot was and how dazzling the characters were. As I got deeper and deeper into my love for this show, I realized that I also loved all of the actors and producers that were a part of it, and I developed a huge crush on Ian Somerhalder that I still carry with me to this day. Sadly, this show has already ended, but you can stream all of its seasons on HBO Max or Peacock. You can also find its two spin-off shows, the Originals and Legacies, on Netflix.

    What would happen if America’s Next Top Model still airs now? 

    America’s Next Top Model is one of the most contentious reality TV shows in recent memory. Reality television is known for airing some of the most dramatic moments, but this particular show has received a lot of backlashes, prompting fans to wonder if the ‘reality’ of this television program is perhaps a little too negative.

    Bella Hadid making her acting debut in Ramy Season 3

    Last week Hulu released the trailer for season 3 of the Hulu original show “Ramy.” The trailer showed Bella Hadid as Lena, who appeared to be a love interest of Ramy’s friend, Steve. They met on a dating app called Muslim Matches, which apparently doesn’t require its users, like Steve, to be Muslim.

    Why the Kardashian Empire Won’t Last Forever

    If you didn’t know them from “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”, then you’ve certainly learned about the Kardashian family one way or another, whether it be through media scandals or the launch of a new beauty brand, or perhaps the release of a new mobile game. Even the name “Kardashian” has become eponymous with inescapable fame, the kind that permeates every corner of pop culture and becomes a reference within itself. The Kardashians have molded so many of our current trends that it’s hard to imagine what pop culture would be like without their influence–but I think that time may be closer than we realize.
