John Oliver returned on Sunday night after a months-long absence, just in time to discuss the latest mass school shooting in America, this time at the Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. As with every time one of these shootings occur, a familiar pattern develops.

“These events are now so familiar, we basically automatically know how each side will play out,” explained Oliver. “‘Thoughts and prayers,’ ‘f*ck your thoughts and prayers,’ ‘it’s a mental health problem,’ ‘yeah, but it’s also a gun problem,’ and then someone says ‘now’s not the time to talk about gun control,’ and then everybody moves on until it inevitably happens again.”

Only this time, Oliver continued, it’s different. “Because when that ‘now’s not time’ argument’ came out, the kids from that school said, ‘You know what? Yes it f*cking is.’”

Indeed, Marjorie Stoneman Douglas students spoke out to demand gun control in the immediate wake of the tragedy, such as senior Emma Gonzalez, who delivered a moving plea at a gun control rally in Ft. Lauderdale over the weekend, calling “B.S.” on the various excuses used by those in the pocket of the NRA.

We call B.S.,” stressed Oliver. “It is a little ironic that the people who are acting with the most maturity in this horrifying situation aren’t even old enough to say the word ‘bullshit’ in front of their parents.” Oliver then pointed out that those kids have already announced a gun control march next month, “and in doing so they’re challenging adults to participate in a real conversation about gun violence.”

best travel shows on netflix right now

CNN

Last Updated: February 19th

Are you dreaming of that next adventure? Maybe with this exclusive travel club or even virtual reality? We all need to get away at some point. It’s hard to decide where to go, when to go, and why to pick one destination over another. Luckily television (teacher, mother, secret lover) is here to help. Netflix has a long list of travel shows to stoke the fires of your wanderlust.

Here are some of the best travel shows on Netflix streaming, available to watch right now.

8) Tales By Light

Tales By Light isn’t your average travel show per se. The focus here is on great photographers and how they operate. The photographers they follow just happen to be some of the best in the world who have devoted their life to globetrotting so as to find the absolute best shot. Every corner of the world is covered over two seasons of breathtaking episodes and crazy escapades. Seriously, one episode is about swimming with anacondas in the Amazon.

7) Somebody Feed Phil

Phil Rosenthal has cut out a pretty great second act after his days running Everybody Loves Raymond. Rosenthal is traveling around the world eating great food. It’s a trip of discovery that does have a food focus but ends up being just as much about the journey as a great bowl of pho.

6) Departures

Departures is back on Netflix with all three seasons streaming. The show follows friends Scott Wilson and Justin Lukach as they galavant around the world filming their adventures and misadventures. Wilson and Lukach offer a clear glimpse into the wider world of travel as a pair of good friends who ying and yang their way from one great place to another.

5) Human Planet

This companion piece to the Planet Earth series is every bit as captivating as the original. What makes this docuseries stand above the rest is its unflinching view of humanity. There are people out there living almost unfathomable lives to the average westerner. Yet there they are. Realizing there is so much more to humanity than what your life represents is a cornerstone of travel, life, and personal evolution.

4) The Moaning Of Life

Karl Pilkington is back on the road. This time he’s shed Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant and is tackling the world all on his own. He’s also tackling some of life’s biggest question while traipsing around the globe. Is he suited for marriage? Would he make a good father? Is he ready for death? He finds these answers and more with his usual dry acerbic wit in tow.

3) Planet Earth

This is the show of shows. BBC spent years filming the wild world and, wow, did it pay off. This series single-handily set a new bar in what is possible in worldwide, nature-based documentary cinematography. Touching on each geographical area the world has to offer, Planet Earth is a feast for the eyes. It also offers a glimpse into the natural soul of the planet in an intimate and brutal way. It may seem a little odd for a travel list. I’ll counter that if this series doesn’t make you want to travel the wonders of the natural world, nothing will. If film crews can go, you can, too.

2) Stephen Fry In America

Stephen Fry is a bit of a legend in the UK. He’s made history with comedy shows like A Bit of Fry and Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster (both with comedy partner Hugh Laurie). It’s fascinating watching someone so thoroughly British travel the whole of the United States — in a black London taxi cab no less. The series’ episodes are in-depth looks into the quirks and wonder that is America from an outsider deeply interested in what makes Americans tick. It’s a travel show about making new friends, having conversations, and finding some authenticity.

1) Parts Unknown

Anthony Bourdain has spent the better part of the last two decades perfecting our age’s travel show. Parts Unknown is the gold standard for which all others grasp. Our own Vince Mancini has given you a reason to watch for the food aspects. I couldn’t agree more. However, the real heart of Parts Unknown is travel and people. The food is often tertiary.

Bourdain realized long ago that going to a place is more about walking around and eating food than having a canned experience. Sometimes he misses the mark (Peru, Libya, Congo episodes, I’m looking at you). More often than not Bourdain gives you an insight that takes real balls to find.

President Trump spent his Sunday night (unsurprisingly) watching TV. More specifically, he watched Oprah Winfrey — whose Golden Globes speech fueled rumors of a 2020 run — on 60 Minutes, on which she moderated a panel of 7 Trump voters and 7 non-Trump voters to discuss Trump’s first year in office. Naturally, Trump couldn’t resist tweeting his thoughts, slamming Oprah, and (possibly) revealing that he felt threatened by those 2020 rumors.

The president referred to Oprah as “insecure,” and he wants everyone to know that they used to know each other “very well.” Yet he felt that Oprah’s questions “were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect.” Then he dared her to run in 2020 and be “defeated just like all of the others!”

Well … the 60 Minutes transcript makes it evident that Oprah stayed mostly impartial. Yes, she asked questions revolving around Trump’s controversies because those are unavoidable issues, and she obviously wasn’t thrilled with Trump’s “sh*thole countries” comment about African nations and Haiti. However, the panel encouraged open dialogue between both sets of voters, yet it wasn’t pro-Trump propaganda, so of course he was upset.

In the end, what Trump did by tweeting is let everyone know that he does see Oprah as a threat by effectively pulling her pigtails on the playground. While Oprah’s made it clear that she has zero interest in running for president, at least we’ve finally gotten a taste of how fun it would be if she did.

Marvel/Disney

Marvel has a good problem — they have way too many awesome superheroes. But they also are stuck with an issue that won’t be solved until Brie Larson’s run as Captain Marvel. They still, after nearly a decade, don’t have a solo female superhero movie.

Sure, there’s potentially a Black Widow movie in the works, but with Lupita, Letitia, and Danai stealing the show in Black Panther and Tessa Thompson as one of Asgard’s final valkyries returning for Infinity War, the time is now to get the ladies together for an outing. To Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, this is going to be tough, but it’s a good tough. He spoke to Vulture:

“It is an embarrassment of riches. Even watching the audience at the Black Panther premiere respond to Lupita, Letitia, and certainly Danai in their action sequences … you watch Danai spinning around in that casino, taking out dozens of people, and you go, ‘Of course you can make a whole movie about that!’”

But, as a superhero movie fan, there’s really only one thing that matters: when is it a real, tangible thing that can be consumed and enjoyed? Regarding that query, Feige doesn’t have a clear answer. “It is all about figuring out when and how,” he said. “But by the way, many of them have already filmed additional scenes in upcoming movies, so some of that is gonna come sooner rather than later. All of them will be seen again.”

That isn’t the most satisfying answer in the world, but at least it’s good to know that the universe is expanding out and will be in good hands when the Marvel Cinematic Universe shifts into the next phase.

Warner Bros.

Over the last few years, Mattel has branched out with its Barbie line to include heroes from the comic book world like Wonder Woman, but they’ve never modeled a doll after the star of a mature-rated video game series. Now, with Alicia Vikander’s Tomb Raider movie coming to theaters March 16th, a Lara Croft doll is here to raid tombs and possibly ride along in a pink Corvette in her off time.

IGN got the scoop at this weekend’s New York Toy Fair and have a smattering of cool poses for Lara and her ice pick (no bow or gun for the kid’s toy) on their site.

Here’s Mattel’s look:

While those poses are worth a definitely worth a look for longtime (and new) fans that are proud their bear-shooting, puzzle-solving badass has made the big time, some collectors have already gotten their hands on the new figure. There’s already an unboxing of the new doll:

The reboot of the beloved game series is looking on point in the trailers from Warner Bros, but getting a Barbie rather than the typical collectible is truly interesting. Will collectors have a problem getting the Barbie to put next to their Nathan Drake? Probably not. It looks cool.
