"Wine Country"on Netflix

From new contributor Samantha Craggs

In theory,there's a lot to love aboutWine Country.It's two whole hours devoted to women in their 40s and 50s,an often invisible demographic in film.What's more it's rarely about typical topics like marriage or children.It stars watchable and funny women.It passes the Beschdel Test in spades.

But withWine Country,sadly,the result is as bland as the biscuit and asparagus tones that permeate the backdrop...

Russian Doll: Season One

By Spencer Coile

Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) regards her reflection in the mirror.The moment lingers until a sharp knock at the door pulls her out of it.She stomps her way out of the newly renovated bathroom of her best friend Maxine (Greta Lee) – complete with a shotgun doorknob – to join her comrades for her 36th birthday party.Taking a hit from a cocaine-laced joint,hooking up with a stranger,and searching for her cat Oatmeal eventually lead to Nadia's death.She is struck by a car when crossing the road.

She wakes up,exactly where she was before.

Reconfiguring the influential conceit fromGroundhog Dayin meaningful ways,Russian Dollis groundbreaking in its own right...

Team Experience Globe Fun: Fav Speeches + Maya & Amy's Nuptials

It's our final Golden Globes in review post.That was exhausting.As is our habit each big awards show,because TFE writers and podcasters are never all in the same room at the same time,we've collected the group's responses for you.Because we love the Globes even when we hate them (like we did Sunday night) we have a lot to say so this is for you die-hards who can't get enough.If you're already tired of the Globes look away look away there's plenty more to see here if you start clicking around.

We were going to talk about worst winners but we don't want to be negative for the wrap-up so I'll just share what Nick wrote in response to"Which win made you angriest?"

I don't know,which is worse,strychnine or anthrax?I refer,of course,to the two "Best""Picture""winners."There aren't enough scare quotes in the world,really.

Hee !!!We were co-miserating by text that night.

Anyway,here are 5 fun questions that we hope you'll answer in the comments.Our answers are after the jump...

  1. Which win made you happiest?
  2. Who will you volunteer to comfort about their loss?
  3. Which was your favourite speech?
  4. Which table did you fantasize about sitting at?
  5. What would you like your role to be at Maya Rudolph & Amy Poehler's 'wedding'?

The Third Annual Golden Globe Presenter Ranking

byJorge Molina

The Globes are known for shaking things up a bit.As we could see last night,it's not always necessarily for the best.However,the much looser environment of the show allows them to have more fun with presenters,and the gathering of both film and television stars usually leads to unexpected combinations of people and bursts of chemistry.

In our now annual tradition,here is the third annual ranking of the Golden Globe presenters:
