NBA tests streaming the fourth quarter of regular season games for only 99 cents

It is hardly a new observation to point out that the first 36 minutes of an NBA contest isn’t worth watching, and all that matters is the fourth quarter. That kind of thinking is actually incorrect since what happens in the last 12-minutes is all about everything that took place on the hardwood prior to the final quarter.

On Friday night, certain NBA fans received a notification that they could watch the fourth quarter …

Elizabeth Moss says 'Handmaid's Tale' Season 2 will be 'darker' — somehow

TwitterFacebook

The Handmaid’s Tale feels unstoppable at every award show, and Season 2 appears to have no intention of slowing down — or letting us off the hook.

Over the weekend at the TV Critics Association press tour, Elizabeth Moss warned reporters: “It’s a dark season. I would say arguably it’s darker than Season 1 — if that’s possible.”
