​Weekend TV Is Something of a Graveyard Smash

It's finally here! Halloween weekend, Sabbat Samhain, All Hallow's Eve. What are your plans? I have none. I mean, my plan is to get real spooky, but that's always the plan. Ditto my costume, which is technically "Guilty Remnant" but only requires adding a whiteboard and white hi-tops to my usual "look." Maybe try and… » 10/31/14 5:45pm Yesterday 5:45pm

Everything Coming to Netflix in November

Hallowe'en is a time when the veil between past and present, living and dead, goes soft; and of course, so too we find the line between what is available and what is no longer or temporarily unavailable ever so slightly permeable, on the last day of the month, when it comes to Netflix. Imagine if you will that you… » 10/30/14 4:00pm Thursday 4:00pm

​Thursday Night TV Is Hot on the Trail of Those Celebrity Nude Hackers

You good? You know it's Devil's Night, or what they call Mischief Night in some places where they don't know what it's called. That's the night that you do all the things you would normally do on Hallowe'en, but twice as hard and 24 hours early, because of ADHD and a generalized unrest. If you are in a danger zone for… » 10/30/14 4:00pm Thursday 4:00pm

​Wednesday Night TV Didn't Love the Nineties the First Time Around

Week's moving at quite a clip now, picking up speed. The end in sight. Hallowe'en spookily looming, and the long days after.

And what can we… » 10/29/14 5:55pm Wednesday 5:55pm

What's Leaving Netflix on Friday

You have 48 hours to watch the following movies before they leave Netflix with no word on when they will return. Could be in a week, could be years from now. You don't know, and Netflix isn't telling. Luckily a lot of them suck super bad so this will not be painful for you, but then in other cases maybe you will find,… » 10/29/14 5:00pm Wednesday 5:00pm

Monday Night TV Explores the Man Behind the Monster Right Behind You

Welcome to Monday night TV! I haven't even gotten through all the quality Sunday night TV or I might have some nutty thing to say about it now, but instead I'm running around town all day wondering what happened on my stories. How was your weekend? I went to a haunted house and it was super spooky! I'm not trying to… » 10/27/14 5:00pm Monday 5:00pm

The Best Things to Stream This Weekend

Thursday Night TV Implores You Not to Sweep The Leg

Solar eclipse this afternoon, Mercury comes out of retrograde tomorrow, and that's all I know today about our common enemy, the sky. While you're setting your intentions and figuring out that your phone is actually not broken like you thought, but was being acted upon by astronomy like a dick, here's some TV to chill… » 10/23/14 5:00pm 10/23/14 5:00pm

Thank you. Anyone who self-identifies as a victim of "bullying" past the age of 20 should not be setting the goalposts of any conversation. That's the only context that matters, for the same reason the word "disingenuous" exists in the first place. » 10/22/14 5:01pm 10/22/14 5:01pm

Tuesday Night TV Lashes Out, Immediately Apologizes

How's your week going so far? 'Round here it's just mostly trying to nail the perfect time of year to buy as much cheap candy as possible and then hide it from the people in the house long enough to save it for the children that require it. It's a multilevel scheme of checks and balances that ultimately means room for… » 10/21/14 3:30pm 10/21/14 3:30pm
