"I Love Dick" is Jill Soloway's second TV series for Amazon, after "Transparent." It's based on Chris Kraus's seminal feminist novel from the 1990s and stars Kevin Bacon as the titular character. Rolling Stone has called the show "the high-lit cowboy-lust TV show you need." The Nose weighs in.

Marvel

Look. I don't like Guardians of the Galaxy, okay? I get it. I'm the only nerd on the face of the planet who isn't charmed by these movies. I know I have a cold stone where my heart should be.

And The Nose does love these movies.

Hulu

Margaret Atwood started writing her classic dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale in 1984.

Atwood said the novel isn't a prediction, but the internet thinks Hulu's new TV version is.

Fox News
