The Body Serve TV Awards

13Nov

Settle in for our second annual TV episode, where we discuss the many, many shows we've been watching. Ideally, we throw in some analysis, some political content, and praise for the women and people of color who are helping to make TV's second golden age so special. Look out for Transparent, Outlander, Jane the Virgin, Insecure, Orange is the New Black, Queen Sugar, and a withering takedown of former fave UnReal.
