series 3: the good, the bad & the crazy (current)

Any actress with a long-standing career in Hollywood has had her share of gems - along with some complete misfires and absolute head-scratchers. In this series, we've selected some of our favourite actresses (including Julianne, Michelle and more) and viewed them through the tripartite lens of classics, clunkers and curiosities... It's three times the fun.

Series 2: chick lit (episodes 27-40)

"There is no frigate like a book," as Emily Dickinson wrote... Movies spin out dreams for a couple of hours, books transport us for days, weeks, months at a time. In this series, we read female-centered books -- from literary prize-winners to pulpy thrillers  -- then watch as screen goddesses like Nicole, Isabelle, and Sissy make the words flesh. Check out some Selected Episodes here.

mini-series 1.5: the male gayz (episodes 21-26)

Complicated, conflicted, and queer as a three dollar bill.  We take a break from actresses for a mini-series of films that question masculine identity.  We're joined by cops, cross-dressers and cowboys on a journey spanning the decades of Hollywood's least hetero-normative heroes.

series 1: 1990s (episodes 1-20)

Jodie, Sigourney... and Winona, Forever.  Our premiere series goes back a few decades to re-connect with the women we grew up loving.  From serial-killer thrillers to sci-fi to prestige dramas, we revisit films high and low from the last decade of the twentieth century that put strong women front and centre.
