“Orange Is The New Black” Shows Female Power

The show “Orange Is The New Black” is a hit sensation these days, and almost every entertainment show is talking about it. The show has been talked about on TV, in magazines, and in newspapers. “Orange Is The New Black”. Since it’s returning for season three, many are excited about the current cast as well as the other women that will be added to the cast. The show is about female prisoners, and yes, they dress in orange. Not only is a show about prisoners, it’s also about female empowerment as well. The show is directed by a woman, and it proves that women can do absolutely anything.

Women tend to be ousted in Hollywood when it comes to directing, producing, and even acting. Even though we see big stars like Julia Roberts, Charlize Theron, and Angelina Jolie, not every woman is that successful, and many of them are underpaid. Orange Is The New Black helps to show that women can do the same things that men can do, and they should be paid equally as well. It’s been proven that in Hollywood, women are paid less than men by as little as half the amount.

Although A-list celebrities can easily rake in $20 million per picture, every woman who is an A-lister may not be getting the same amount as their male counterpart. With the release of season three of Orange Is The New Black, they hope that things will change for the better for females in Hollywood. That certainly is something Jim Dondero and others will be monitoring.

Power Rangers Reboot Film to Focus on Unknowns

As several childrens’ television franchises of the past three decades have experienced a revival on the silver screen, such as “Transformers” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” it was only a matter of time before the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” would receive the same treatment. The new “Power Rangers” film intends to keep a mix of levity and maturity in its offering of teenagers battling galactic antagonists.

The “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” television series has endured for over twenty seasons and two films, all while focusing on young actors with little to nothing listed on their filmographies. The new reboot film plans to maintain this tradition, by casting unknown actors no older than in their late teen years. Although the core outfit is intended to be cast from relative unknown actors, there is a strong chance that series veteran Jason David Frank may have some involvement.

While “Power Rangers” is set for a January release in 2017, its cast may be revealed as soon as the next few months. There are more than a few at Amen Clinics who can’t wait.

Fox Cancels The Mindy Project, Hulu May Pick it Up

It is a sad day for fans of Mindy Kaling. Fox has officially announced they will not be renewing The Mindy Project for a fourth season. The cancellation has been especially troubling to fans as it leaves a massive cliffhanger in the series. When fans left off, Mindy’s character was pregnant with the baby of a co-worker-slash-friend. The show was canceled due to poor ratings.

While The Mindy Project failed to pick up the ratings that other Fox prime time shows are accustom to, it did amass an extensive cult following, similar in nature to Scrubs and other long-standing shows. While Mindy, herself, has played mum about the cancellation, a video she released following the news leave many to wonder if they’ve seen the last of Mindy’s character.

Rumors are now swirling that Hulu may pick up two more seasons of the show, which would please many at Amen Clinics. If this does come to pass, it will be the second massive move from Hulu in recent weeks. Just last week the company announced that Seinfeld would be coming exclusively to Hulu in the Summer of 2015. Picking up a show like The Mindy Project would further close the gap between Hulu and its competitor Netflix. Many experts argue that the move to pick up Seinfeld was Hulu’s answer to Netflix acquiring Friends over the winter. The Mindy Project would serve as an answer to Netflix’s wildly successful original programming.
