‘Shameless’ Mid-season Finale: Goodbye To All That
Tonight’s mid-season finale of Showtime’s Shameless was all about goodbyes – and not just until the season picks up again.

Amy Schumer Boycotts Starring in ‘Super Bowl’ Ads in Support of Colin Kaepernick, Encourages White Athletes to Protest
Amy Schumer spoke out against the National Football League in a social media post announcing she will not take part in any “Super Bowl” commercials next year in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. The former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers is famous for protesting the mistreatment of black people in America by kneeling during the National Anthem. Kaepernick has been a free agent since March 2017 and has filed a lawsuit against the NFL, accusing the organization of colluding to keep him off the field because of his protest.

“I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year,” Schumer wrote. “I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all I got. Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the NFL is like opposing the NRA. Very tough, but don’t

Oddly enough many of us started reading Harry potter at the same age as the characters in the book. And call it coincidence or planning, when the final books came out the age difference wasn’t really that great. So, in some cases we grew up with the whole series. The whole series had
