The week has come to an end. It feels like it all happened in a jiffy. As last-minute holiday shopping takes place and many of you are wrapping up things at work, time seems to be flying. However, in between all the madness, the world continues to spin and bring us headlines from the Latine community.

It’s such a win when we get films and shows that represent our Latine community. However, we’re in a streaming era that doesn’t let us save these masterpieces. 

If you haven’t noticed, HBO Max has canceled many shows lately – including the popular fan-favorite “Westworld.” The reason is that back in August, Warner Bros. joined Discovery and they’re working on a new streaming service that will come alive in mid-2023. For now, content is being abruptly pulled out, making way for the new service.
