Kanye West’s GQ interview reaches new levels of delusion

GQ’s July issue has a Q & A feature with Kanye West. The interview is so deluded, I briefly considered that the issue wasn’t the interview, but actually my English comprehension skills. But no, really, I think I choose that both the questions and answers are so asinine, I would like to dissect them here […]


Could ’24′ live on with more Kate Morgan, less Jack Bauer?

Last week was the final episode of Fox’s 24: Live Another Day, a limited 12-episode run of the popular series that reunites us with agent Jack Bauer four years after the ending of its eighth season. (If you haven’t watched it yet or plan to do so later, you might want to come back to this, […]


A few questions about the 2014 Emmy nominations

The 2014 Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning, and as could be expected, many critics and fans were outraged over the shows and actors wrongfully snubbed. Depending on who you follow on Twitter, your timeline may have been flooded with fist-waving and teeth-grinding over The Good Wife not being nominated in the “Outstanding Drama” category, […]


A New Dungeons & Dragons For A New Generation Of Tabletop Gamers

Dungeons & Dragons has been a household brand name since the game’s meteoric rise to popularity in the early 1980s with the iconic Basic Dungeons & Dragons boxed set.

I Wanna Marry ‘Harry’ Episodes 5-8 Recap: Bitches be crazy

To the surprise of no one, this train wreck of a show was cancelled shortly after I posted my Episode 4 recap. I wasn’t upset over the actual cancellation so much as how much time and effort I put in to these recaps and there was no way I couldn’t watch the rest of the […]


Tim Burton’s ‘Batman’ changed pop culture 25 years ago

With the prevalence of comic book superhero movies in theaters these days, it seems strange to remember a time when blockbusters based on Marvel and DC Comics characters weren’t on the big screen. But 25 years ago, it was a huge risk to make a movie based on Batman, though the hero was easily recognized […]


FX’s ‘Fargo’ was ultimately a study in cowardice

If you haven’t watched the season finale of FX’s Fargo, you might want to pass on this. This post will have plenty of spoilers, as I don’t see how it’s possible to write about the final episode, nor the series as a whole, without mentioning what actually happened. But after you watch, we hope you […]

‘Better Call Saul’ gets early renewal for Season 2, as AMC continues to look like it’s panicking

The rise of AMC as one of cable’s powerhouse networks for prestige dramas is one of the much-beloved narratives of pop culture writers. But really, the whole thing can kind of be narrowed down to three things: The Walking Dead becoming a legitimate phenomenon, Breaking Bad building into a phenomenon for one season, and Mad Men not really being a ratings phenomenon, […]


Aquaman poised to be big-screen badass, thanks to Jason Momoa

Aquaman has always been a pop culture punching bag. But those days could soon be over. That’s what happens when you cast the guy who played Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, pouring molten gold on Visnerys Targaryen’s head (then watching him die face-to-face) and pulling a guy’s tongue out through the gash he cut […]
