Sure, Stranger Things parodies have more or less run their course by summer’s end, but we can’t fault SNL for having waited to get in on the Upside Down. So it is, that Lin-Manuel Miranda takes us into Stranger Things Season 2 by introducing us to Lucas’ family.

SNL burst out of the gate for Season 42 over the weekend, having spent a summer in transition with headline after headline passing them by. Leslie Jones in particular had something to say about the hack she suffered in August, recruiting Mr. Robot himself to track down the culprit in a new sketch.

‘Masterminds’ stars some of the funniest names in comedy, like Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, and Leslie Jones. Too bad ‘Masterminds’ isn’t funny.

With Paul Feig at the helm and a quartet of hilarious women who are great at improvising, it’s not surprising that the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of the Ghostbusters reboot is packed with additional scenes, outtakes, deleted scenes, gag reels and — as many fans hoped — an extended cut of the film. We won’t have a chance to see any of these bonus materials until October, but it should be interesting for those who felt as though Feig’s theatrical version may have been a little too safe.

Leslie Jones’ website was hacked Wednesday morning and subsequently shut down after her personal information, including photos and her driver’s license, was posted on the site. Hackers apparently collected her info and photos in an iCloud before moving them over to her site justleslie.com. The website is down and a GoDaddy holding page has replaced it for now.

SNL sailed from the 40th anniversary into Season 41 rather smoothly, though the waters roughened in recent weeks with the departures of Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah and Jon Rudnitsky. Thankfully, it’s clear skies ahead for Season 42, as the rest of the beloved cast will be staying aboard. Sailing metaphors!

If you haven’t been paying attention: Leslie Jones endured a barrage of disgusting racist and misogynist attacks that ultimately forced her to take a leave of absence from Twitter. The culprits? The very vocal contingency of Ghostbusters fans (aka Ghostbros) who have been decrying Paul Feig’s reboot because it features an all-female cast. Original Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd has come out in support of Jones, and he’s got some seriously harsh words for all the haters.

Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Will Probably Bust More Ghosts in a Sequel

When Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters hit theaters over the weekend, a couple of things happened: It did fairly well at the box office — landing in second place just below The Secret Life of Pets — and no one’s childhood was destroyed. A $46 million opening isn’t mind-blowing, but it looks like it will be enough to justify a sequel to the reboot. The big question now is whether or not Feig and the whole cast will return for it.
