Why should we care about these protagonists and The Bold Type, especially when they sound like others that have already been fleshed out in other shows?
The Bold Type follows three women (Jane, Kat, and Sutton) that work at Scarlet Magazine, which is based on Cosmopolitan, as they navigate the pressures of being a young adult, a young woman, and working at a high-end fashion magazine that is often deemed vastly un-feminist, which could not be any less true. It doesn’t sound any different from anything else on TV, right? Well, that’s an incorrect statement.
Spider-Man: Homecoming may be the sixth big screen film for the web head but it feels like audiences are truly meeting him for the first time.
Three years ago the idea of a Spider-Man movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a fantasy. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had just come out and Sony had their own cinematic universe future planned out. Yet after that sequel underperformed with critics and audiences, even the most hopeful fan couldn’t imagine what would come next. Rights issues, different studios, and other factors kept Spider-Man from playing with the Avengers.
With the end of Pretty Little Liars comes Freeform’s next, hopeful, lady-loving hit, The Bold Type, which focuses on three women as they endure the rough magazine world, and rough world in general.
The Bold Type premiered Season 1 Episode 1, “Pilot,” and Season 1 Episode 2, “O Hell No,” together, so we got a double-dose of these women on their quest to greatness and satisfaction. For a network that is so often just focusing on relationships, this series has started off the complete opposite: it’s about these women finding themselves in their work, rather than in their men (or women). This is the feminist series everyone’s been waiting for.

What’s new in Claws Season 1 Episode 4? Well this time, Desna’s also making decisions that can get everyone shot in the chest like the Titus employee. The fall-out from said Titus incident lead to Jen’s husband having a mental break and desperately searching for a scapegoat. Then there’s Polly, who slid right back into old habits and got slapped right back into the gutter. The motley crew has been trying to get their lives together and sadly failing.

Freya finally gets to experience love with Keelin without someone dying every week.
