‘Never Have I Ever’ Cast Reflects on Hollywood’s Treatment of Women of Color

Never Have I Ever Season 2 is finally out and receiving the love it definitely deserves. The series picks up after the first season with Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) being thrown in a love triangle between Ben (Jaren Lewison) and Paxton (Darren Barnet). Although the trailer focuses on Devi’s love life, the story behind the second season is much deeper than just teenage love and lust. Still dealing with the grief of losing her father, Devi deals with school, her mother’s potential love life, and the idea of the new Indian girl in school taking her spot in the all-white school.

NOC Review: This ‘Gunpowder Milkshake’ is Unfortunately Bland

If there were two words I would use to describe Gunpowder Milkshake it would be “wasted talent.”

I really wanted to like this one. These are some of the finest actresses ever to grace the screen. Karen Gillan is a badass. Lena Headey is incredible. Angela Bassett is a talent powerhouse. Carla Gugino has always been one of the most underrated character actresses ever. And Michelle Yeoh is simply a legend. But unfortunately the awkward direction of this movie fails them hard in a film that should absolutely be better than it actually is.

Second Season of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Snags Four Emmy Nominations

Despite my exhaustive efforts, The Umbrella Academy has not yet returned my calls, emails, tweets, OR messages to join them as a mediocre writer with the ability to comma splice my enemies to death. For what it’s worth, I don’t think they’ll need much help next season considering the four Emmy nods they just received for their immaculate work in season two.

‘Never Have I Ever’ Charms as it Deals with Grief and Growing Up

Never Have I Ever returns this week for its sophomore season, and it seems like our protagonist, Indian American teenager Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), has not learned her lesson from last season on how to be a better person. As shown in the trailers, the second season starts with Devi having to deal with two romantic suitors — Paxton Hall-Yoshida (Darren Barnet) and Ben Gross (Jared Lewison) — and attempting to juggle them both. Of course we know it will lead to heartbreak for the trio and leaves Devi in a really difficult place trying to make things right. There were many times I felt aggravated watching Devi make mistake after mistake and felt like she was never really growing as a person. The thing is, nobody is perfect and as annoying as Devi is when mistakes are made, Never Have I Ever still finds a way to make it as charming and relatable as possible.
