How Ronald Reagan’s Coded Racism Paved the Way for Trump

A former entertainment personality decides, in his later years, to go into politics.

He couples that with decrying communists, liberalism, and anyone out in the streets protesting for social justice. To top it off, he then aligns himself with corporate America, running on a pro-free market, anti-regulation, tax-cutting ticket that ai...

'Moonbase 8' is a pretty weightless Showtime comedy

"Moonbase 8" is about three guys in what amounts to quarantine, which adds an unexpectedly timely wrinkle to what's otherwise a pretty silly comedy.
