Feast your eyes upon almost 19 karats of nearly flawless diamond. It’s very shiny.
Actress Ruth Wilson, whom you might recognize from The Affair or the version of Jane Eyre costarring Maggie Smith’s son, is taking on an interesting new role for a new BBC drama: She’s playing her own grandmother, who discovered upon her husband’s death that he was in fact a spy and a bigamist.
Netflix will be releasing “A Midwinter’s Tale,” a special holiday episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as part of its slate of seasonal programming. Satan riding to the aid of Christmas is a weird twist in the war on Christmas, but okay.
Earlier this year, Chip and Joanna Gaines ended their immensely popular HGTV show, Fixer Upper. Were they riding off into the Texan sunset, content with their moderate fortune and thriving merch business? Hell, no. They’re coming back, but not with a new show. No, indeed! They are back with an entire goddamn TV…
How do you design a medieval world without accidentally replicating the look of Monty Python and the Holy Grail? Where do you go when you need chainmail in bulk? And does the costume department have any role in a dick shot? These are just a few of the questions raised by Outlaw King, the new Netflix original starring…
“Salsify,” a near-forgotten root vegetable once a staple of Victorian Britain, is making a return, thanks to the apparently bottomless appetite for “traditional foods and ingredients.” Truly Brexit is reaching dire new territory.
In a program marking his 70th birthday, Prince Charles has assured the United Kingdom that he won’t meddle in politics as king; “I’m not that stupid,” he announced, practically inviting people to speculate on how stupid he is, then. God bless him.
Justin Trudeau has apologized for Canada’s 1939 decision to turn away the St. Louis, a steamliner full of refugees from Nazi Germany; out of more than 900 passengers, 254 were ultimately killed in the Holocaust.
Once again, it’s time for the beloved annual festival that blends soothing/stressful consumerism with the thrilled bewilderment of old-fashioned catalog shopping: Oprah’s reveal of her “Favorite Things,” which will inevitably convince each and every one of us to purchase some absurdly luxurious throw blanket, mittens,…
Looking for a little interior design inspiration? Well, apparently the ancient Gauls really did embalm the heads of their enemies and display them proudly. Something for once everyone’s finally tired of shiplap and mason jars???
Not only is America missing out on an election mascot, we don’t even have an amenity available to colonial Americans—great honking slices of cake that often contained booze. Fortunately, you could still remedy this with a little after-work stress baking!
The same week as Americans head to the polls for what’ll be at least in part essentially a referendum on how to treat children seeking asylum, Britain is commemorating the Kindertransport, a massive effort to get as many endangered children out of Nazi reach as possible.
Evelyn Davis, a long-running fixture of annual shareholder meetings who can perhaps best be described as “larger than life,” has died at 89. A Holocaust survivor, she went on to spend several decades molding herself into the worst nightmare of CEOs across America. She was loud, and she was not shy about being a total…
In a truly inspired strategy for demonstrating how their collection looks in action, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has invited dancers from the organization It’s Showtime NYC! to do a series of performances in their Arms and Armor gallery.
Here’s something nice for a change: A New York hospital is experimenting with a program to help patients vote when they find themselves in the maternity ward rather than able to get to their polling place on Election Day.
Theresa May has agreed to answer questions in a British news program mounted entirely by children. It therefore falls to the children of the United Kingdom to roast the absolute hell out of their prime minister, but I’m frankly confident they are up to the task.
At England’s magnificent Blenheim Palace—the stately home to end all stately homes—they’ve recently begun restoring a 250-year-old manmade lake and bridge that crosses it. Well, they drained the lake, and they discovered dozens of previously sunken rooms in the bridge.
The young royals get the lion’s share of the global adulation, but unless he dies before his mother, Prince Charles is going to be the king someday. Hence the long profile in this month’s Vanity Fair, which is as much about the royal press pack and other behind-the-scenes people as it as about Charles himself.
Seemingly every website does a ranking of the best Halloween candies, and Jezebel—a blog powered entirely by a cabinet full of gummies, empty gummi wrappers, and trash—has no intention of being left out of the fun.
Robb Stark is back, baby!
