The Bold Type - Plus It Up - Advance Preview: Sharing


Not just Prom, Queer Prom

Tonight on The Bold Type, there’s a lot of friction still between Jane and Patrick and not the good kind. A new assignment he hands out is dangerously close to being way too intrusive into Jane’s personal life, and though Jacqueline knew how to handle these things, Patrick clearly doesn’t, and not only he’s an ass about it but he puts Jane in a position where she has to lend her own body for someone else to write about against her own will, and that’s just not okay.

You’re never going to sell me on Patrick being the perfect feminist they were trying to show him as but what really worries me is the fact that the show itself doesn’t seem fully aware of what they did here and that’s the real issue, by definition this show should be aware of the things it tackles and they just missed the mark here for me. I hope they prove me wrong in the future since I do tend to give the writers here the benefit of the doubt.

Jane wants to keep her relationship with Ryan drama free, but that can’t really be a thing here, can it? Kat (who seems to be getting along with Patrick just fine) figures out an important place for her is in danger and she decides to do something about it. Sutton realizes the challenges her differences with Richard will bring, and the amount of responsibility she’s having at work doesn't really help, especially since Oliver, is going through something and he’s extra sensitive at the moment.

There's also a lot of tension building between him and Jacqueline though there he will find underestimating her is never the right move and we get a special visit from Sasha Velour from Ru Paul's Drag Race. Another place where I felt there was an opportunity lost is this fabulous Queer Prom, maybe it's just me but I wanted the show to pay a little more attention to these people's joy about recreating such a huge cultural moment in their lives but free of judgment this time around. Still, there's a lot of enjoyment to be had here, as always, so tune in.

Rocks crumble.
I don’t think they do.
Where do you think sand comes from?
The beach?


Don't miss The Bold Type tonight, Tuesday, April 16th, at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
