This is it. A little over a year since Netflix pulled the plug on the critically-acclaimed Latinx-centered family sitcom, “One Day at a Time,” and after numerous fan campaigns and a last minute save by POP TV, the show has finally returned to our screens. Regardless of whether you’ve watched the series from the beginning — either the 1975 original created by Norman Lear or the reboot in 2017 — or are only discovering it for the first time, the premiere is very aware of its need to appeal to both audiences.

As fantasy and sci-fi have become two of the most popular television genres, we’ve now reached the point where subgenres have emerged, most notably alternate history. Based on the late Philip Roth’s 2004 novel of the same name, HBO’s alternate history miniseries “The Plot Against America” imagines what life would be like in a world where Hitler and the Nazis prevailed and what it would be like for a Jewish family to live through a presidency that empowers those who openly discriminate against them.

Let’s paint a picture. It’s Saturday night at Skeeps. Your $12 Moscow Mule pitcher is running dry. “Down” by Jay Sean is blasting on the speakers. Everyone’s losing it. Luckily, you lock eyes with that special someone from across the muddied dance floor. You find your way through the crowd and begin to hit the basics: Name, major, hometown, your least favorite President of the University whose last name starts with an “S.” Next thing you know, you’re in a Lyft back to their place.

I have a complicated relationship with the world of animation. I was raised in the caring arms of Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. As a kid I would come home from school, crash on the couch and watch episodes of “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” “Regular Show,” “Adventure Time” … the list goes on and on. When I got older, I started wading my way into the more mature side of animation. I found myself strangely attracted to staples of American “adult animation,” i.e. “Family Guy,” “The Simpsons,” etc.

The concept behind the YouTube series “Hot Ones” is simple: Take the typical celebrity interview and spice it up with some hot wings. The show is extremely well researched, insightful and genuine. TruTV has decided to adapt “Hot Ones” into a game show on its channel: “Hot Ones: The Game Show.” The game show centers around two teams of “bros” as they devour some hot wings and answer some trivia for a cash prize.
