Dear Gossips,

Sally Rooney’s Normal People was released in North America a year ago this month and became an instant bestseller, just like it was in the UK when bookstores couldn’t keep it in stock. I ripped through it in one sitting and then read it again, twice.  Read Full Intro

In another world, John Krasinski would have hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time over the weekend, fulfilling a childhood dream. Instead, he posted his first Some Good News broadcast to YouTube from a Weekend Update-like desk late on Sunday, in front of a logo created by his daughters, and gave the people what they want: a reunion with his "best boss ever" from The Office, Steve Carell. Full Story

Crossover Madness

Two things have happened this month: the NCAA cancelled the March Madness basketball tournament, and Westworld featured a surprise Game of Thrones cameo this week. Having HBO’s biggest show cross over with its try-hardiest show in the same month that there is no March Madness is surely a sign that the universe wants us to figure out the best possible combination of TV show crossovers by doing loosely organized, nonsensical brackets of potential crossovers and pitting them against each other. Full Story

In a time of Extreme Streaming™, watching TV is not a passive thing; it’s an outlet for energy and it’s also a talking point, particularly for those who feel squirrely right now.  With that, streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu are capitalizing on the eyeballs, dropping a steady stream of new series (like Tiger King and Little Fires Everywhere). Full Story

Chris Evans continues his post-Marvel streak of playing very un-Captain America characters, playing a sad dad in Defending Jacob, a morally ambiguous family drama coming to Apple TV next month. Movies might be offline right now, but television trucks on, uninterrupted (for now, the production shutdowns will catch up to the television schedule eventually), so Defending Jacob will be a new thing to look at on April 24. Full Story

SD In 30 Minute Segments

During this time of uncertainty, people are using their time to master a new skill, like needlepoint or knitting. Some are baking bread or learning an instrument or language or writing a book. I’m doing none of that.  We are conditioned to use every spare moment for self-improvement so self-distancing at home and ‘doing nothing’ feels wrong. Full Story

As another week of self-distancing and self-quarantine goes on, it is time to ask the important questions, such as: Which Succession characters would thrive in self-quarantine? The Roy family is made up of a bunch of self-involved narcissistic assholes who get off on chaos and back-stabbing. An economic crisis brought on by pandemic is the kind of chaos-ladder the Roys love to climb, but not all Roys are made equal—for every Shiv, there’s a Cousin Greg. Full Story

***Drag Race Spoilers Below*** Friday’s episode of Drag Race was a rollercoaster, and the elimination shocked and surprised fans. For many, Rock M Sakura was a favourite they were sad to see go, but for many others, her elimination (and even her placement in the bottom two) was completely unjustified. Full Story

Social Distancing Re-View: Castlevania

Before they had a breakout hit in The Witcher, Netflix launched another medieval fantasy show about a grumpy monster hunter who swears a lot: Castlevania. With season three now streaming, it’s a great time to get into this series, which is animated in a style I describe as “faux anime”—it’s not actual anime, but it’s got that look. Full Story

Just six days ago, HBO’s Euphoria posted a photo from the season 2 table read featuring Zendaya and Angus Cloud, looking very much like their characters.           Full Story
