Netflix Isn't Done With 'Las Chicas Del Cable'

At this point, you can find almost every kind of series in Netflix's collection of originals: comedies, crime dramas, animated series. And the streaming service is about to premiere Las Chicas Del Cable, a Spanish-language period drama about the women working in Madrid's first phone operating service.

'Las Chicas Del Cable' Is A Spanish Feminist History Lesson

Telephones have a gendered history. When they first became popular, the connection between phones and women was seen by some as a dangerous combination of gossip and housewife boredom.

The title translates in English to Cable Girls, and the eight episodes will follow the lives of four young women living in Madri…

'TRL' Moments That Were Totally '90s-tastic

There's probably a tiny part of you that misses coming home from school and catching up with the latest videos from your favorite '90s pop stars. There was nothing like that rush. Although we can thank YouTube for harvesting some of those vintage clips, we can also thank it for killing the hype of music videos in general.

‘Pump Rules’ Season 6 Is Officially Happening

All these years later and Scheana Marie’s forearm tattoo continues to speak the truth: It’s all happening. On Thursday, Bravo announced that Vanderpump Rules will get a sixth season. Though I wouldn't say this renewal was unexpected (judging from my Twitter feed, the show is crushing it harder than ever), this renewal is still worth SUR-lebrating. I am so pleased to know that we will get at least one more year with the Sexy Unique Pumpers. In the past, I’ve attempted to predict what the future …

'The Circle' Changed A Big Part Of The Book

Adapting a book for the big screen is never easy. Luckily, The Circle director James Ponsoldt, who also co-wrote the script with the author himself Dave Eggers, has plenty of experience in this area. Ponsoldt's past two films, The End of the Tour and The Spectacular Now, were both book adaptations. And, just as with his previous works, The Circle movie includes a few major changes to the book. Fans of the original novel might be shocked to find out some of these The Circle movie vs. the book dif…

The Guardians Lineup May Look Very Different In 'Vol. 4'

A couple of weeks ago, writer and director James Gunn confirmed that he would return for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3… but in the same breath, broke the sad news that the third installment would be the end of the GOTG franchise as fans know it. "[Vol. 3] will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy," Gunn wrote in a statement on his Facebook page. But now, in an interview with the Toronto Sun, Gunn is clarifying that comment. While Vol. 3 will be the end of the stor…
