    The Tick is the perfect superhero show for our times

    Amazon Video’s superpowered satire finds the humor in the characters who dominate pop culture in the 2010s. When Chicago debuted on Broadway in 1975, it was generally well-received, despite some reviewers finding it a bit too over-the-top in its satire of crime, celebrity, and show business. It ran for two years, always in the shadow of the smash hit A Chorus Line (which had opened around the same time). And then it closed.

    Worried you won't have a device that'll support Disney's new streaming service? The good news is that the company has hinted it'll be available on a wide variety of devices including games consoles and streaming sticks. Quite surprisingly, the Nintendo Switch appeared in a slide during a Disney presentation late last week along with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Nintendo's latest handheld console has been curiously lax when it comes to supporting streaming apps, especially in the UK that is restricted to just YouTube. Those in the US have access to Hulu too, but Netflix isn't on the platform anywhere.

    Dominatrix Community Condemns Netflix Show ‘Bonding’ As ‘Inauthentic’ and ‘Problematic’

    Netflix's new comedy follows a gay man assisting a dominatrix. Sex workers say the show is stigmatizing and unrealistic. Netflix scored big with bawdy teen comedy “Sex Education” at the start of the year, but it appears its latest attempt at a sex positive comedy was a misstep. Created by actor Rightor Doyle, “Bonding” centers around a gay stand-up comic who comes into his sexuality when he takes on a gig as an assistant to a dominatrix.
