I am one of the few privileged Twitter users that received the 280 character expansion, doubling the amount of space I have to compose a tweet.

Recently, I decided to give Fuller House a chance. It was exactly what I expected. Cheesy and uncomfortable. It kind of reminded me of what Disney Channel has become, which is not a good thing. I will say, I chuckled at some parts and got a little interested, but sometimes, it’s just better not to...

As of recently, I’ve been on a Hulu kick. All due to the fact that Netflix (rudely) removed Desperate Housewives while I was in the middle of season five. It was a very emotional time for me - I don’t like to speak of it. Out of curiosity, I took it to Charger Poll to find out what you guys prefer:...
