Oh boy. Disney, ever the optimist, has rescheduled the theatrical release of the thoroughly embattled New Mutants. And what you read next just may shock you. Just kidding: The studio has set the premiere for August 28 of this god-awful year, which should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed the tumultuous progress of this uniquely sabotaged X-Men installment. Had this news arrived in February, when shelter-in-place orders had a two-week expiration date and the pandemic still seemed liked a horrific, but somewhat manageable in tragic retrospect hill to climb, few would have given this move much of a second thought. However, now the idea sounds almost comical. But Disney loves a good miracle, so maybe theaters will have found a way to not only reopen, but thoroughly thrive in the next three months. Who knows besides scientists, we mean? The A. Shannon Miller.
Set it up: 16 episodes of blind dates, stupid cupids, and at least one perfect match
The current coronavirus epidemic has, obviously, played merry hell with the normal Hollywood film release calendar for the next several months—if not years. Faced with a world in which theaters are no longer in operation and would suffer seriously reduced box office draws even if they were , studios are forced to ask themselves some hard questions. More often than not, though, the call has been to delay—although the lengths of those delays have said a lot about what individual studios think about how long the need for quarantine is going to last, ranging from Paramount moving A Quiet Place Part II back a mere 5 months , to F9 dropping back an entire calendar year.
Because these changes have been coming at us all as fast as a frowning John Cena running to glare down an equally frown-y Vin Diesel, we decided it might be good to have a place to check back and confirm what the current hypothetical release schedule actually looks like.

But now Love Is Blind is hitting the reset button. On Love Is Blind , there are no profile pictures. Instead, the premiere episode follows 30 ridiculously attractive men and women as they embark on a round of speed dates where they never actually see their date. Placed in adjoining rooms, the potential paramours are separated by a thin wall.
But the sparks are palpable, which is essential, because Love Is Blind takes these potential couples way past flirting. After just 10 days of speed dating, willing pairs are only allowed to see each other after getting engaged. They are then whisked off to a Mexican resort vacation to get to know each other face-to-face.

We here at The A. Last year, we told you about Romeo , a Sehuencas water frog whose utter inability to get laid threatened to spell…. You know what? Dating sucks.
Competition is in the air, thanks to March Madness, but the return of the dating series has us thinking about perfect pairs instead of an elite eight.
Motivations shift with every new twist, and this show layers on twist after twist. Oliver is getting high and baking cookies and singing in the kitchen and Everyone is reacting to the FBI threat in ways that are specific to them. The FBI case is unfolding on the sidelines, but it sharpens a lot of the stakes and motives. The characters have been thrown into a pressure cooker.
This episode has one of my absolute favorite titular lines of the entire series. Viola Davis delivers it so naturally that it almost feels like improvisation.

Teddy Blanks. Why Oh Why is a podcast about dating and relationships. In each episode, host Andrea Silenzi speaks with friends, experts, and guys in bars about where love and sex meets technology. The show tells the stories about relationships by blurring the lines between memoir, documentary, and fiction. Her show interrogates romance and human relationships in the digital age, but it does so in a manner that defies shape and form. Photo by Adomako Aman.

Master Of None has been subtly fucking around with storytelling this season, departing even more from traditional narrative structures than the first season does. It ends with a group swipe sesh—that mean and yet totally fun group activity where you let your friends weigh in as you swipe, turning dating apps into more of a tribunal process.
In fact, quite the contrary. Dev immediately establishes different rapports with each of the women, who are loosely sketched but brought to life by charismatic and distinct performances from Tiya Sircar, Lauren Miller Rogen, Alison Barton, Aparna Nancherla, Condola Rashad, Mary Elizabeth Kelly, Pallavi Sastry, and others. Christine Rogen works at a dog hotel and immediately has a similar dynamic with Dev as his ex-girlfriend Rachel, witty and playful. Nancherla is hilarious in her portrayal of Stephanie, lover of WWE, hater of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation although she watched it twice in a row for some reason , and secretly the woman behind The Rameniac, a ramen blog Dev has read before.
Priya abandons Dev at the table for too long when she goes to the bathroom, but she acknowledges it right away, and their date keeps chugging along. One woman is rude to the server.

Even just a few years ago, there was a healthy amount of stigma attached to meeting someone online. Online dating has bled into the pop culture consciousness at a steady clip; shows like The Mindy Project even worked out a deal to integrate the dating app Tinder into its narrative. Dates , however, lives and dies by online dating. The first two episodes are first dates between mismatched pairs of people. The intimate setting and two-person cast makes each episode feel like a play, which can work when the actors are appealing.
As the Dates drama unfolds, though, the self-important dialogue and blatant stabs at hitting some human truism become more exhausting than illuminating.

Chris Coelen: One of the things that sort of came to mind was the idea that, from a universal perspective, every person in the world wants to be loved for exactly the same reason: for who they are.

The eight episodes that make up season one are all based on true narratives selected in a series from Epic Magazine and presented, with some alterations, as a gradation of immigrant tales. The show invokes hopefulness and optimism despite the various challenges faced by the characters. The result is a series of heartfelt stories, as uplifting as they are tearjerking.

In that spirit, he proudly struts around in his newly acquired cowboy hat and boots—when he tips his head to two older women, he appears to fit right in.
