Friends or Foes: Battles Within: The Walking Dead S.8, E.3 Review

SPOILER ALERT:  If you have not seen season eight, episode three of The Walking Dead yet, you may want to watch it before you read this.

A Blast From the Past: The Walking Dead S.8, E.2 Review

When it comes to abuse there are no “Shades of Grey”

“Fifty Shades of Gray” is described as a harlequin romance fantasy. A book that satisfies women’s fantasies with no harmful effects because no one would really let their fantasies get the best of them. That right there is a fantasy. Yet, both the book and the movie are selling on the top of the charts. The fact of the matter is that violence and abuse is not something that should be taken so lightly, especially since sexual violence is becoming a bigger and bigger problem in our society.
