BritBox is one of my favorite streaming options for movies and television programs any Anglophile will find satisfying, compelling, and very entertaining. From vintage 1970s detective dramas and comedies to current 2019 mysteries and sit-coms, I have enjoyed hours and hours binging wonderful shows from England to Scotland from Down Under to Up North. For my personal convenience I choose an annual subscription fee, since I don’t see any reason I would ever suspend my membership, but for others the monthly fee option might be preferred. Either way both are very reasonable. Anyone can forgo a latte a month in exchange for “calorie free” entertainment, right?

I sat down with Director Nicolette C. Andersen to talk about the new season and how Selma will evolve in the years to come.

As America’s celebration for Hispanic Heritage Month ends, for comedian and actress Cristela Alonzo, every day is a celebration of her Mexican identity. It’s not just a celebration for her, it’s a statement, a crusade, a purpose, and she takes it seriously. She’s best known for her self-titled ABC sitcom, Cristela, back in 2014. Because of that breakthrough, she is the first Latina woman to create, produce, write, and star in her own US primetime comedy in television history.
