The Pursuit of Love

When Bridgerton hit Netflix last winter, a record-breaking number of viewers tuned in to its antics, sucked into the sexy period piece’s easy frills and thrills. A Regency-era romp about British high society and the bawdy dalliances contained therein, the show, based on the Julia Quinn novels, felt like a flirty pastiche of Jane Austen conventions—if you shoved one of her stories through a Harlequin romance Instagram filter and soundtracked it to orchestral covers of Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish songs.

The Green Knight

Director David Lowery tackles your most burning questions. Director David Lowery’s highly anticipated film, The Green Knight, is adapted from the anonymously written 14th-century poem “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” which most English majors have had to read at least once. It tells a rather simple story about King Arthur’s nephew Sir Gawain, who accepts a challenge from a supernaturally oversized knight on New Year’s Eve—and has one year to deliver on his side of the bargain. On his journey to find the Green Knight, Gawain encounters the usual Arthurian tests of honor and character, and comes out the other side a little more worse for wear than some of his fellow knights of the Round Table.

When I first saw the trailer for HBO Max's new dating show FBoy Island, I thought to myself, "A dating show that specifically targets and explores the idea of being a fuckboy? Isn't that... every single dating show in the year 2021?" Even so, I am a sucker for a show that calls people on their bullshit, and this immediately felt like the perfect addition to the tropical-island-dating-show cannon.
