WE MADE IT!
Join Cecily and Chanda in a victory lap at the end of the marathon that was season 2 of Riverdale. This week we discuss New Charmed vs. Old Charmed, white feminism, broadening the literary canon, CW scheduling shenanigans, Arrow, Supernatural, Hiram’s end game, whether Hal Cooper is a weevil, and yes, what’s next for our Riverdalians next season.
Hal, is that you?
I’ve been waiting for a girl like you…
Brave New World is a dystopian novel by English author Aldous Huxley. Published in 1932, it propounds that economic chaos and unemployment will cause a radical reaction in the form of an international scientific empire that manufactures its citizens in the laboratory on a eugenic basis, without the need for human intercourse.
Set in a future London, it follows the fortunes of the illegitimate son of a senior governor, who has grown up in America, outside the new empire, and who experiences a dramatic culture-clash when he has to live under its rules. The novel anticipates developments in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and classical conditioning.
On publication, the book earned mixed reviews, but is now seen as one of the most significant novels of the 20th century, consistently ranking high in the major literary league-tables. (from Wikipedia)

I felt it was kinda crazy Charmed ripped off the The Craft & cut out the black character… https://t.co/bDnNORDQ6z

Super sorry for unintended dragging. My tweet wasn’t at all about craft vs charmed. It was about the absurdity of either of us commenting on remakes. My point is a young fresh Latina cast getting a TV show re Brujas is a sea change to be celebrated not bemoaned #diversity https://t.co/bbxRTgjZsv
