Movies that Predicted Trump: Bulworth (1998)

Breaking all rules of political etiquette, a candidate starts behaving outrageously, offending sensibilities with outlandish racially-tinged comments and unhinged acts of buffoonery. Sounds familiar, right? Except the year is not 2015 or 2016 but 1996, and the man in question is a fictional liberal Democrat named Jay Billington Bulworth.

Scream Queens: Chanel is bad at sex

Welcome to Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens, a show that 75% of the cast is too good for. As you know, I am tired of recapping this show and am handing the reins over to the one person who loves this show: Chanel Oberlin herself. For this episode, Dean Cathy Munsch will also take over. The Agony Booth is not responsible for any of the mean and hurtful things they say. especially to each other. Take it away, ladies!

Once Upon a Time: I Dream of Genie

This week on Once, Emma gets “wished” into an alt-world, where her hair and makeup are better, but everything else about her is way worse. Also, Aladdin becomes everyone’s b*tch; the Evil Queen unleashes her inner reptile; and everyone who thought Belle’s kid was super creepy, and most likely The Worst, gets to say “I TOLD YOU SO!”

Bad First Drafts: Arrival (2016)

Arrival is raking in decent money and could snag a few major award nominations in the coming months. But even the best movies don’t start out brilliant. Agony Booth’s fearless team of dumpster divers has discovered the painfully blunt first draft of Eric Heisserer’s screenplay…

Hit or Bomb? December movie predictions

December is the time of the year that brings yule tidings, whatever the hell those are, along with the studio’s most family-friendliest blockbusters and their most Oscar-batiest of awards contenders. The release of another Star Wars film is imminent and looms large over this month’s releases, but there are still plenty of other films vying for your hard-earned ticket dollars this December.

Jane the Virgin: Holy Mother of God

Previously on Jane the Virgin: Jane’s Crazy Cousin Catalina came into town and surprised her with an impromptu family reunion. Catalina is fun, cool, hip, and possibly evil since all long-lost relatives tend to be in telenovela land…

Once Upon a Time: Baby mama drama

This week on Once, Belle’s “baby” keeps haunting her dreams, while not so subtly hitting on her, and no one is supposed to think that’s weird. Aladdin becomes a Genie, and moves into a lamp, which I guess beats his prior job of living in a cave and being unemployed.

Scream Queens: Bloody Hell

Welcome to Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens, where all the good characters (see Chad, Denise Hemphill, and Tristan the Stalker) get killed off too soon. As you all know, I am tired of recapping this show and will be handing the reins to Chanel Oberline herself. Keep in mind, we at the Agony Booth are not responsible for any of the horrible things she says. Take it away, Chanel!

Jane the Virgin: Kissing cousins

Previously on Jane the Virgin: Jane reached out to Alba’s side of the family and now her crazy Catalina has showed up on her doorstep, ready for a family reunion? How do we know she’s crazy? Long-lost relatives usually are in telenovela land…

Supergirl: Waiting for Cyborg Superman

Well, there are lots of action plots with this week, with plenty of mano a mano fights (or extraterrestre a extraterrestre, as the case may be) and lots of Michael Bay-esque shots with the camera circling around combatants (and even just people sitting around having drinks)…
