Hello, fearless Internet cybernauts! We're almost to the end of the week, which is reason enough to celebrate, but we know the final stretch can sometimes get you down. That's why we've assembled this compilation of linkage for you to put in your eyeballs/earbuds/some other form of sensory processing. As always, if you have anything you'd like to send our way or think deserves a shoutout, feel free to tweet us @Syfyfangrrls or leave a comment below.
- The Handmaid's Tale concluded its gripping first season this week, and there's a lot the series gets right about the bitter pill of sexual violence and rape culture in our world. (Den of Geek)
- However, where the series falls short is in its uneven depiction of race, even while it adopts several of the realities faced by women of color over the centuries. (Vulture)
- Tom Cruise may have kicked off his career as something of a sex symbol, but over the years he's evolved into a different kind of action star. In the wake of his latest film's flop, could he be on track to become known for something else entirely? (Cosmopolitan)
- We're really looking forward to playing some Star Wars: Battlefront II this fall, but the only person who might be more excited than us is Janina Gavankar, who stars as the game's lead character Iden Versio. Just watch this interview and try not to feel emoshuns. (The Star Wars Show)
TGIT, friends, which translates to "Thank God It's Thorsday." What, did you think I was going to say Thursday?
