04.20.17 4 days ago

Netflix

Girlboss (Netflix) – Netflix’s latest original is a half hour dramedy and loose (very loose) adaptation of the story of Sophia Amoruso, founder of online fashion juggernaut Nasty Gal and author of the book #Girlboss. The show follows Amoruso (Britt Robertson) and her journey from a penniless 20 something in San Francisco to CEO of a multi-million dollar company. Sure, she’s a jerk and a stereotypically entitled young adult so there’s no real empowerment angle here, but it’s still fun watching Robertson play a mean girl who gives zero f*cks.

Bill Nye Saves The World (Netflix) – Bill Nye is here to save the world from science deniers (a.k.a. Republicans and your estranged relatives living in the woods of West Virginia) with his new talk show on Netflix. Don’t expect the same kid friendly scientist you’re used to. Nye is pissed off and ready to prove how ignorant Trump supporters are with help from experts, celebrities and his own scientific experiments.
