“I wanted to show white people, you don’t know everything about black culture.” – Donald Glover on his new show Atlanta

I really don’t remember when and how I stumbled over Catastrophe, the British comedy about an Irish-American couple having a one-week affair in London ultimately leading to an (unwanted) pregnancy. But I had to keep watching and season 1 is six episodes of true and… Read more

There’s programs you hate and at the same time love to watch – the famous hatewatch. When I was still going to school and during the first years of university I loved watching reality series (chuck the past tense: I still do. I just act out… Read more
