Science fiction has been used as an escape for a long time for many people. I am no different. Though my first introduction to sci-fi was kid’s cartoons, I have grown up with science fiction. It has been one of the most watched genres of my entire life. It has kept me grounded and let […]
Parks & Rec is one of my favorite shows. But it wasn’t perfect. For all of its smarts and brilliant hilarity, there was a blind spot — constant and nearly universally unquestioned fat-shaming.
We have another video heavy article this week. Let’s get to it!
Were you introduced to a TV show or movie too late? Did you see something that was clearly only good to those who could watch it through nostalgia-colored glasses? Did timing just ruin pop culture for you?
Formulaic reality TV makes for great boozing.
Have you ever felt like there’s just too much television to watch? I have, and it turns out, that’s not just in my head.

Trigger Warning: This post contains discussion of rape and sexual assault. Let me start by saying that Reign is a great show.

TV is in a “Golden Age,” right?
I’m pretty convinced Suzanne Warren’s mother is racist. Unintentionally so, but to detrimental effect.
“You young kids, you can’t wait for a new season. You have to watch every episode at once. You have no patience!” This was my mother, scolding me for watching the entire first season of Orange is the New Black in under a week. When I pointed out that if streaming services had been around when […]
I’ve been spending a lot of alone time lately, partly by choice and partly involuntarily. I suppose I can blame it on the recent chaos that’s occurred in my life, or maybe to the summertime sadness I’ve developed, a la Lana Del Rey (also, damn you Lana). But as I slowly try to get myself […]
I want to talk about last night’s episode of Glee. Specifically the return of Samcedes.
