To no one’s surprise, Emily is still in Paris. Hopefully, she’s picked up better French and is more well-versed in the local Parisian culture, but that’s not why we’re invested in this comedy series. A.k.a. the love triangle between Emily, the hot chef Gabriel, and her B.F.F. Camille. We can’t wait to see what shenanigans the trio gets embroiled in for the second season of Emily in Paris.

Good sci-fi shows are few and far between, so we can’t help but feel sad that the third season of Lost In Space is also its last. If it sounds familiar, that’s because this is a modern reboot of the original series from the 1960s. 

Here’s a quick recap for those who aren’t familiar with the premise: The Robinson family crash-landed on an alien planet in a galaxy far away. With not many resources except for one alien robot that they affectionately call “Robot,” they have to find their way back to their colony ship or they’ll, well, die.

We’ve followed the Money Heist squad through hell and back, and the era of The Professor and his motley crew are coming to an end in the final volume of the series. We left off the first part of the volume with a war brewing within the walls of the Bank of Spain and Tokyo bidding her team adieu in one final act of sacrifice.

It’s a bittersweet feeling knowing that the final episodes of one of the most riveting Netflix shows are drawing near. Expect bloodshed, tears, and a lot of screaming.

What happens when you take the Japanese thriller Battle Royale and throw in some of Saw’s perverse games? That’s what Squid Game is all about, and the newest K-drama to hit Netflix has got everyone talking. 

The game show has rounded up a couple of hundred people in major debt for a chance to win S$52 million. But there’s a twist: When a loser gets eliminated, they get eliminated from the game of life. We’re not going to spoil too much of the games, but just be prepared to be heartbroken, frustrated, and traumatised at the nihilism of Squid Game.

Instead, the trio are thrown into a desertified Earth and are tasked to retrieve an unknown sample from a lunar research facility. As the team carries out their mission, they uncover the truth behind a previous accident that happened on the moon and realise that their lives are at stake.

Gone are the days where expletives were taboo and severely frowned upon – we’re now living in an era where WAP is gospel and many teens let rip an F-bomb every sentence or two. In these irreverent times we live in, Nicolas Cage goes a step further to help us understand the origins of these profanities in History of Swear Words.

Though the show probably won’t dissuade us from using these taboo words, we can at least ramp up our knowledge on the vulgarities that have become part and parcel of our daily lives.
