The 15 best Netflix original series of 2020 (so far)
July 3, 2020 at 4:20 pm 0
Even in the darkest of times, our Netflix queues shine bright.  Thus far, 2020 has been a bit of a...bumpy ride. Thankfully for the Netflix-subscribed among us, the streaming service's steady offering of original series has provided some much needed consistency. Over the past six months, we've enjoyed the returns of old series favorites like Dead To Me, Ozark, and Grace & Frankie, alongside new sensations like Love Is Blind, Outer Banks, and [sigh] Tiger King. We even got more Dating Around, Queer Eye, and an interactive Kimmy Schmidt special. With many of us having more screen time thanks to stay-at-home orders, the race for Best Netflix Original Show of the Year has never been tighter. Halfway through 2020, which series do we think have a shot at clinching the title?  Read more...More about Netflix, Never Have I Ever, Ozark, Best Of 2020, and Entertainment

What are the best video games of all time? I asked our team to help decide.
July 3, 2020 at 4:20 pm 0
Video game fans frequently try to crown one favorite or another as "The Best." There are tens of thousands of words scattered across the internet, all devoted to identifying the titles that represent the absolute pinnacle of games one can play.  There's also no consensus: My dull experience is another person's transcendent awakening. Even the basic definition of "best" and how it's applied to one or a list of games is open to debate.  That's why we're not having it. Instead of trying to crown a set of games as the one-size-fits-all best video games of all time, I turned to the members of Mashable's games-loving team and asked them to share what they considered the best games for them. No other context given, and no guidance as to how "best" should be measured. Just tell me your best video games, and briefly explain why.

HBO's 'Welcome to Chechnya' sheds agonizing light on LGBTQ genocide
June 30, 2020 at 3:51 pm 0
In Welcome to Chechnya, the third film from Academy Award nominee David France, viewers are asked to relinquish the comforts of abstraction. There's no time for sweeping shots of foreign countrysides, or graphics placing the small Russian republic on a world map. Instead, it is immediately apparent that this is a very real, very dangerous place — one that viewers, no matter how ill-prepared in their understanding of its tumultuous history, must reckon with. The guerilla-style documentary begins with a man on the phone. David Isteev, the crisis response coordinator for the Russian LGBT Network, is speaking with a young woman using the alias “Anya.” Anya’s uncle has discovered his niece is a lesbian. If Anya does not agree to have sex with her uncle, she says, then he will tell her father. Isteev hangs up, promising Anya, “We are coming.”  Read more...More about Hbo, Lgbtq, Documentary, Chechnya, and Movie Review
