So, the new Hulu series “The Patient,” which stars Carell as a therapist whose patient (played by Domhnall Gleeson) holds him hostage, confesses to being a serial killer, and demands a cure for his murderous methods. Please count me on

I love that even after all these years, there is still more Star Trek world to explore.

In this animated series, the support crew of the spaceship USS Cerritos tell their stories. Season 3 finds the ship impounded and the crew not only seeking justice for the captain, but engaging in all sorts of interplanetary hijinks.

A fun trio of sci-fi, comedy and animation.

The first two episodes of the new season are streaming on Paramount+.

Being a long time Tudor here, this new PBS series is my favourite.

The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family, a three-part historical documentary, explores the Boleyn family’s rapid rise and dramatic decline in England’s Tudor dynasty.

Of course, Anne Boleyn was one of Henry VIII’s wives. But she wasn’t the only Boleyn to charm her king. PBS explains the series “A thrilling tale of love, sex, betrayal and obsession unfolds in a Tudor court full of gossip, betrayal rivalries and intrigue.”

Yes, please!

My mom is a big fan of TLC’s reality series Sister Wives, so she’s always up to date with its star Kody Brown and his family. (TLC also owns CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.)

His ex-wife Christine Brown recently talked to people about ending their relationship and about moving away from polygamy.

“I can live my life for me,” said the 50-year-old woman. “My whole world has changed and every cell in my body is happier.”

One of the things I found most interesting about Sister Wives was the concept of multiple women sharing the same husband, blending families together. It turns out that Brown, who shares her six children with her now, has lost her interest in her life that way.

“I started to think that maybe this wasn’t for me,” she said. “Then I stopped believing in polygamy.

The importance of finding what makes you happy cannot be overemphasized. Good luck to her.

Solange Knowles attends the inaugural Lena Horne Awards Gala at City Hall in New York City on February 28, 2020.

I love Solange Knowles this time.

Multi-talented, multi-hyphenated creative, she’s spreading her art to the world more than ever before.

not just her She became the first black woman to compose a score for the New York City Ballet. However, she also recently released a 188-page monograph, In Past Pupils and Smiles, based on the performance work she debuted at the 2019 Venice Biennale.

according to trendThe book includes “behind-the-scenes and live performance photos, conversations, and conversations with collaborators such as co-curator Aaron Caesar, musician Greg Bryant, costume designer Kyle Lu, and hairstylist Virginie Ginn Moreira. It includes writing.”

“Documentation with still photography is always very important,” she told the publication. We had the performance redone without an actual audience to capture how it changed.”

Beyoncé’s little sister is no easy feat, so it’s exciting to see Knowles carving her own legacy into art.
