As nerds, the Super Heroines, Etc. team is always finding something new to nerd out about. In this series, we’ll share a few of the awesome discoveries we make when seeking out new movies, TV shows, books, comics, etc. Check out what we’re nerding out about this August:
That’s right, I said Lifetime! From the channel that has brought us many sentimental tear-jerkers over the years, comes something completely different. UnReal is set behind-the-scenes of a Bachelor-style reality show. That description alone could be a recipe for cheesy, back-stabbing, everyday workplace dramas, but UnReal is so much more – it’s social commentary through the eyes of multi-layered female protagonists. You’re never sure who to like on the show, but the great thing is, there’s something to like and hate about everyone on the show, so you’re not losing out on dynamic, complicated characters. Our President, Carolyn, gives this show two big thumbs up!
Discovery Channel’s Naked and Afraid
If you love nerding out about TV, here’s another show to suck you in. Naked and Afraid is a reality TV show that drops two survivalists in the wilderness – naked – for 21 days. You probably couldn’t pay most of us enough money to participate in this show, but watching it is quite a lot of fun!
When we were kids, coloring was awesome! Slowly, coloring became less a part of our lives as algebra, chemistry, and SATs became a bigger part of our lives. Luckily, coloring is making a comeback! Adults all over the US are nerding out about adult coloring books, which are more intricate than many children’s coloring books. Bonus: coloring is a stress-free activity AND it has been shown to have indirect health benefits. If you missed our latest Relax & Color event, check back soon for another!
