Let's get to this week's Picks and Flicks!

'Supergirl' and 10 Other Badass Women on TV (THR): Just ten of the many strong, badass women on TV. These ten are top notch, however!

10 empowering Halloween costumes for when you're sick of sexy (Mashable): I will be Mindy Lahiri and it will be amazing.

Angelina Jolie Pitt on Her Most Personal Project With Brad Yet and Why She’s Looking Forward to 50 (Vogue Magazine): An absolutely brilliant piece on Angelina with stunning photographs to supplement. I've always admired Angelina's wide array of endeavors and reading this feature really showcases all of the various shades of why I do.

Take a Break: The Price is Right (Late Late Show with James Corden)
                                That time James lived out a dream we've all had at one point or another.

Sometimes Jessica Chastain Just Pretends She Is Bryce Dallas Howard (BuzzFeed): Jessica Chastain is a delight and I love how fun her and Bryce are with the confusion on who's who.

Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co‑Stars?  (Lenny Letter): I adore Jennifer for speaking out about this. Yes, many have for decades, but it's the consistent continuation that spurs real change.

42 Yahoo Questions That Will Make You Nervous For The Future Of Our Planet (BuzzFeed): Just for the giggles. Yahoo questions will forever be the best/worst.

Tune in next week for more Picks and Flicks!

Happy Sunday!

Picks and Flicks is back this week after a brief hiatus!

We're almost halfway through October, so don't forget to check out this month's lively Slate!

Let's get to this thing!

#missadventure episode 3: the best company": starring Anna Kendrick (Kate Spade)

I absolutely adore this fashionable series. It's sleek and gorgeous with the added Anna flare.

Shadowhunters Sneak Peek #1 and #2 (ABC Family): With a January 12th premiere date in sight, it's time for the promotional elements to start heating up for Shadowhunters. Now, I am aware that it's an ABC Family (soon to be Freeform) series, but that doesn't mean it's going to be awful. I've watched many of their shows over the years and I get hooked for a reason. Shadowhunters looks fun, colorful, truly accepts the genre-bending of the books, and I can't wait!

The Whisper Challenge with Brie Larson (The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon)

Brie Larson is a gem and this segment has never been funnier.

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies trailer (YouTube): Pride and Prejudice + zombies + stellar cast = you can count me in for this fun ride on opening weekend!

Hail Caesar! Trailer

Yes, yes, Coen Brothers, yes.

Tune in this week for a Scorch Trials review and more surprise posts!


P.S. I gave Minority Report another two episodes to hook me and I'm actually quite enjoying it so far! Catch my initial pilot reaction here.
Happy October!

Let's get to this month's picks!

October 6th: iZombie Season 2 Premiere
                                iZombie is by far one of my favorite TV shows and I highly suggest you check it out! If you've been a fan of Party Down and/or Veronica Mars the guest stars will be extra special.

October 6th: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
I am beaming over this one, guys. This is a spinoff, of sorts, from Fangirl. It's a magical world, literally.

October 7th: Arrow Season 4 Premiere
                                This season looks epic and I'm so excited to see more Speedy, Felicity, and kickass fight scenes.

October 9th: The Final Girls
                               Campy fun with a hysterical cast. What more could you ask for? Also, psyched to see Nina Dobrev in more films!

October 9th: Reign Season 3 Premiere
                               More angst for Francis and Mary is just what I've been waiting for all summer. I've missed Adelaide's powerful presence onscreen.

October 11th: The Walking Dead Season 6 Premiere
                               Who's ready to see Rick slip further and further into his insanity?

October 19: Jane The Virgin Season 2 Premiere
                                Jane's first season was a sweet, heartfelt origin and I can't wait to follow this story again.

October 16th: Crimson Peak
                             Fantastic cast + Guillermo Del Toro + A freaky house = A movie that will scare me shitless.

October 16th: Room
                               Brie Larson brings a powerhouse performance in a haunting drama.

October 23: Burnt
                                Bradley as a struggling chef is what dreams are made of. Seeing him pair up with Sienna again is going to be amazing.

October 23: Hemlock Grove Season 3 Premiere
                                The third (and sadly, final) season of Hemlock Grove is coming! It's freaky, disgusting, scary, and dramatic as hell, but then Bill Skarsgard lets a little sass coming through and I'm reminded of why I watch...it's addictive to say the least.
