‘Russian Doll’ Trailer: Natasha Lyonne Gets Her Own ‘Groundhog Day’ with a Lethally Clumsy Twist

Groundhog Day is the cornerstone of movies that repeat a certain event over and over again. Movies like Source Code, Edge of Tomorrow, Happy Death Day and more have run with the formula and put fun twists on it. But we’ve rarely seen that formula applied to an entire series (ABC’s canceled Day Break comes to mind), and now it’s Netflix’s turn to take a crack at reliving the say day over and over again. Russian Doll is a new Netflix comedy series co-created by Orange is the New Black star Natash...

Poll: Nearly Half Of Americans See Immigration As Top Issue Of 2019

As much of the U.S. government remains shut down over President Donald Trump’s insistence on funding for his border wall, nearly half of Americans identify immigration as a top issue for the government to work on this year.

‘The Office’ Producer Mike Schur Explains How the Series Survived a Doomed First Season

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more beloved comedy series than The Office. Fans are endlessly watching reruns now that they’re playing on Comedy Central all the time, and they’ve also watched the series over and over again as one of the most popular library titles on Netflix. But The Office wasn’t always a hit. In fact, the first season of the series was mostly seen as a failure, and the show was nearly doomed from the beginning. So how did the show survive seemingly insurmountable odds? The O...

Here’s your big scoop on the DC Extended Universe for the week: Amy Adams is out.

Milan’s new “library” of trees

Milan’s newest “library” is opening in Porta Nuova, but it’s not the kind of library you’re thinking of — it’s a library of trees. The city’s third-largest urban green space, called Biblioteca degli Alberi (Library of Trees) sits at the foot of the Bosco Verticale — a pair of botanical-themed residential towers. Designed by Dutch studio Inside Outside as a new type of public park, the “library” of plant life is Milan’s latest attempt to solidify its reputation as a city dedicated to innovati...

The Best Jazz of 2018

None Almost 20 years into the new century, it is increasingly tough to say what "jazz" even is, not to mention choosing the best of the category in any given year. The wealth of great music flowing from the jazz tradition is huge and wide, with much of it still coming as straight-ahead swing, dazzling bebop, sultry singing in the style of Ella Fitzgerald or Joe Williams, or funky groove music that thrived in the 1970s fusion heyday. We believe the music of the "jazz" tradition that defined 2018...
