Season one of the NBC hit show, "This Is Us" left viewers on the edge of their seats... AND at the bottom of the tissue box. The drama follows the life of the Pearson family across various decades. From death, love, family, and twists at every corner, this heart-warming show has captured the hearts of viewers everywhere. After NBC released a first look into season two, I am reminded of the cliffhanger known as the season one finale. Instead of answering the questions from season one, this sneak peek of the next season brought viewers even more confusion.

The continuous suspense of this beloved show has everyone anxiously waiting for the next season. As September 26th gets closer and closer, I can't help but look back on the past season and reconsider these questions. Will season two bring us any closer?


1. The most obvious question, how did Jack die?

2. Is there a cause of death that will make this any easier?

3. Are the producers trying to make me hysterical?

4. What will happen with Sophie?

5. Will Rebecca and Jack come back after that fight?

6. Why do I hate Miguel so much? He hasn't done anything wrong.

7. Do Rebecca and Jack break up before he dies?

8. Will Kate ever lose the weight?

9. Will Toby ever lose the weight?

10. What's to come with Kate and Toby's relationship?

11. Will Randall go back to his job?

12. Is Kate really responsible for Randall's death?

13. Will Kate start singing now that she was inspired by Rebecca?

14. What's to come with Kevin and this movie?

15. What will Randall and Beth's girls think of them adopting?

16. Could I love Rebecca and Jack's relationship more?

The '50 Shades' Franchise Is 50 Shades Of Lame

What we really thought of that mind-numbing erotica
28

When the first 50 Shades of Grey book was released in 2011, I wasn't allowed to read it. My oldest sister and even my grandmother read it before I did. When I finally got around to reading it, the film was in the works, and I knew I needed to read it before it hit theaters. Let me just say this: I was not impressed.

The plot was awful. The writing was awful. Everything about it was awful. I hated how quick everything seemed to progress, from Ana first meeting Christian to their first time having sex. I hated Ana's character, her personality, her thought process- really, just her.

The idea that a god-like creature such as Christian Grey himself could fall for the blandest and most average looking woman, Anastasia Steele, was just mind-blowing. It was almost as painful as Bella from Twilight landing the vampire-equivalent of Christian Grey, with all that unnecessary teen-angst thrown in.

Then there's the sex. As erotic and sensual as it may seem, most of it sounded painful, impractical, and almost unnecessary. Jump forward to the second and third installments, 50 Shades Darker and 50 Shades Freed, and it's the same thing over and over again.

Christian and Ana need to seek marriage counseling and therapy immediately. From the very beginning of their relationship and sex contract to their marriage, Christian is nothing but a controlling and possessive sex freak. At first, readers and viewers alike are somewhat overwhelmed by Christian's ways. With the contract that he encourages Ana to sign which makes her his sex slave (or his submissive), to freezing Ana's employer's bank accounts to prevent her from going on a business trip, to his argument about Ana going out for a drink with her best friend, Christian has taken the concept of being a control freak to a new level.

The only way to fix all of their problems and resolve their arguments is with sex, of course, because no good ever came from sitting down and talking it out. As fun as it may seem to screw until you're no longer upset at one another, it does not fix the underlying issues. Anytime Ana and Christian have an argument or a disagreement or are even involved in a car chase, they have sex. Never soft, sweet, passionate sex. It's always insanely hardcore and never seems practical.

Multiple articles have discussed the verbiage that E.L. James used, such as using the word "there" to describe the location where Ana felt her sensations and the language that Christian used to speak to Ana. Some articles have gone so far as to compare Mr. Grey to a serial killer ( here and here ). I didn't come across anything remotely romantic or passionate that wasn't so heavily burdened by his dark, twisted, and often ominous tone.

Those that skipped reading the books and went straight to the films only saw the so-called steamy sex scenes filled with Anastasia's breathy calling of Christian's name. They were able to look past E.L. James' poor writing style and lack of character development, while those of us that suffered through all three books cannot forget the abomination of a "modern-day romance" full of BDSM that is the 50 Shades of Grey franchise. What a tragedy.

"Laters, baby."

5 TV Shows You Should Be Binging On Hulu

Weekends were made for binging TV.

views

If you’re a student and have not taken advantage Hulu’s student discount, you are definitely missing out. Hulu has a great selection of TV shows, perfect for those late-night binges. Here is a list of some of the best TV shows on Hulu you should be watching.

1. "Younger"

"Younger" is such a refreshing dramedy. Watching Liza pretend to be 26-years-old is extremely cringe-worthy but entertaining at the same time. After her daughter leaves for college, Liza Miller is having a hard time finding a job in publishing and when her best friend suggests lying about her age to get a job, Liza finds herself in a world of millennial fashion trends and slang. Between heartbreaks, crazy adventures and hilariously awkward situations, "Younger" will always keep you guessing.

2. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"

If you’re a fan of "The Office" or "Parks and Recreation," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is a perfect fit. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" follows the life of immature detective Jake Peralta as he solves cases with other members of the Nine-Nine. This show is all different forms of hilarious, ranging from classic Michael Scott humor to clever one-liners and laugh out loud cold opens.

3. "The Mindy Project"

"The Mindy Project" is basically a rom-com in the form of a TV show, which makes it super amazing. Following Dr. Mindy Lahiri, "The Mindy Project" is a great mix of drama, comedy and romance. The “will they/won’t they” trope is perfect and Mindy’s crazy love life is enough to make you laugh until you cry and die of secondhand embarrassment.

4. "Sabrina the Teenage Witch"

"Sabrina the Teenage Witch" is a great throwback, especially when you have no idea what you want to watch. Sabrina’s teenage awkwardness is super relatable, minus the magical powers. The best part of the series is that it’s one of those shows that manages to say good for a long period of time, making it prime for an extended binge.

5. "The Good Place"

"The Good Place" is a wild ride from start to finish. There are so many twists and turns that you never really know what’s going on. When Eleanor realizes she’s been mistakenly been put in The Good Place, she does everything she can to fit in, even taking ethics lessons to avoid being sent to The Bad Place. This show is such a gem, it’s worth every second.
