My Hero Academia continues to raise the stakes. After two episodes of training we are right back into the action as some of the students from UA begin to fight Stain, while local heroes deal with the attack of 3 Nomu that are ransacking the city.

The Big Sick is a RomCom about a Pakistani-American comedian who struggles with his family's traditions while maintaining a rocky relationship with a woman in a coma. And it is based on a true story. It's alright, I know you're afraid. The potential for clichés and preachy “America is a melting pot, you middle-American, Red State bigots!” As well as sappy, “I can’t lose her, Doc!
