What's New on Hulu in May 2021

May 2, 2021

Screenshot: Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K./Hulu ( Fair Use ) Streaming services as still dealing with the fallout from the lack of big theatrical releases in 2020, which means that this month’s Hulu lineup is once again short on newer movies I’ve actually heard of. But a little googling has revealed a bunch of more obscure indie releases and documentaries I’m definitely adding to my queue. One of them, MLK/FBI (May 14) feels especially relevant; this documentary, released last year to strong review ...read more

16 Body-Positive TV Shows and Movies for When You're Done With Shaming

May 2, 2021

Photo: Shrill/Hulu Mainstream entertainment, never the friendliest of places, has lately been carving out a space for people who exist outside of contemporary beauty standards. Odds are still good actors will find it more difficult to get certain types of roles if they don’t fit the mold—there’s a lot of overlap in the circles of “funny best friend” and “fat best friend” for a reason, and usually these characters become the target of “jokes” meant to accentuate the character’ ...read more

What's New on Netflix in May 2021

May 2, 2021

Screenshot: Army of the Dead/Netflix After a rather limp April slate , Netflix is springing into summer blockbuster season in May, packing its release schedule full of original films, high-profile pandemic acquisitions, and long-awaited new seasons of a few of its most popular series (or at least a few with vocal online fanbases—we see you, Castlevania stans). Will it be enough to help the streamer recover some of its eroding market share ? Only time will tell. (But probably not.) Most of th ...read more

These Are the Boundaries Every Dog-Owner Should Teach

May 2, 2021

As the human of a smart, quirky herding dog, I’ve had to learn a few hard lessons about the importance of boundaries. If my pup isn’t given a job, for example, he’ll find one himself. And if anyone (especially a stranger) violates his personal space, he gets nippy. We’ve had to create a lot of structure to keep him from getting into trouble, both at home and out in the world. Dogs need boundaries. Boundaries keep them safe and help them feel calm. Theresa Foster, co-owner and trainer at ...read more

Why Sports Make You Miserable, According to Science

May 2, 2021

Photo: Clive Brunskill (Getty Images) On Monday, a seismic shakeup hit the world of European football, threatening to alter the DNA of the biggest sport on Earth. The formation of an invitation-only European Super League , in which 12 of the continent’s economic powerhouse clubs will compete, sharing lavish sums of cash between them, has the sport’s 4 billion global diehards fuming. Though it’s a watershed moment in the nearly 150 year history of the sport’s continental dominance, the ...read more

Celebrate 'International Dark Sky Week' Because You Deserve Some Wonder

May 2, 2021

Photo: nienora (Shutterstock) Anyone from a city tends to comment on the brightness of the stars when they find themselves in a rural area after dark. But, cliché or not, when you’re so used to living somewhere with light pollution, having the chance to experience the opposite of that can catch you off-guard. And if you haven’t heard the term or thought about light pollution since sometime in the mid-’90s, chances are one group’s work is what put it on your radar in the first place: F ...read more

A Road Trip in a Rental RV Is Cheaper Than You Think

May 2, 2021

Photo: Andrey Armyagov (Shutterstock) People all over the country (and the world) have found new creative ways to vacation the past 13 months—the most popular being stateside road trips or weekend getaways just hours from home. Short road trips were our way of still taking a vacation during the worst of the pandemic, but we might consider taking longer ones if we had the means. Enter: RV rentals.

The Best Free-to-Play Games for the Xbox Series X/S

May 2, 2021

The latest Xbox Insider program update nixes the Xbox Live Gold requirement for free-to-play (F2P) Xbox games for users in the Xbox Insider Alpha Alpha Skip Ahead rings. The change will roll out to other Xbox Insider levels in the coming weeks, and, hopefully, everyone else soon after. This will be a huge benefit for players—after all, a game isn’t really free if you have to pay a subscription fee to play it online. It will also bring Microsoft up to date with Nintendo and Sony, which allo ...read more
