-I’ve given up on most of the Arrowverse shows, but good on EW for finally giving them a cover (the first monthly issue since they dropped the weekly format) in honor of Arrow’s final, shortened season. Amell looks hella tired though.

-I don’t even watch The Bachelorette but this recap is great.

This is kind of blowing my mind,” it definitely feels like a prank.
-Time has named the 25 most influential people on the internet.

-The first trailer for Hustling, starring Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, Lizzo and Cardi B, has arrived. Inject this directly into my eyeballs please!!! (Also, if you’ve never read The Cut article that this movie is based on, it’s a wild ride.)
