Why ‘Rick and Morty’ Is the Best Cartoon on TV

If animated shows have any advantage over their live action counterparts, it’s that they aren’t limited by what you can throw in front of the camera (without spending a mountain on visual effects that is). Case and point – “Rick and Morty,” Adult Swim’s latest cult hit, which recently capped its second season and seems to take the limitless possibilities of animation as a dare. It traverses multiple dimensions and exotic alien worlds, rendering the most bizarre visuals it can muster on a weekly basis. Yet for all the imaginationRead More

#WCW: Carlson Young

-Carlson Young- Twitter: @FollowCarlson Instagram: carlsonyoung Known for: Starring as Brooke in MTV’s Scream TV Series. -Yeah, so MTV rebooted the famous Scream series of movies as a TV show.

Last week, the greatest item to ever be listed on eBay was sold, and we all missed out big time. A replica of Game of Thrones‘ much-coveted Iron Throne sold for just over $1,000 to a lucky bidder. But this was not just any Iron Throne. This Iron Throne was unlike any other replica out there. Why? Because this Iron Throne is not adorned with swords. Instead, it is adorned with dildos. Check out the listing on eBay here. Measuring 6 feet tall, 4 feet wide, and 3.5 inches deep, this epic Dildo Iron ThroneRead More

Diagnosing the Characters on Game of Thrones

You love Game of Thrones. I love Game of Thrones. We all love Game of Thrones. The show is arguably the best show ever created, in the eyes of critics and fans alike, and the popularity of the HBO fantasy drama only continues to grow, even as Season 5 has been kind of S…L…O…W. One undeniable thing about Game of Thrones, however, is that part of the reason we love it is due to how incredibly f*cked up so many of the characters are. While some of the Westerosi playersRead More

Why Parks & Recreation is Basically Improvisation

Parks & Recreation is literally the best show on the planet. Actually, in the universe. There’s no show that compares to Parks & Recreation because Parks & Recreation is made up of a stellar cast, and therefore a stellar character list, because everyone in the cast is the character they are. Amy Poehler is Leslie Knope, Rashida Jones is Ann, Aziz is Tom, Rhetta is Donna, Aubrey is April, Chris is Andy, Rob is Chris, Jim is Jerry, Nick is Ron and Adam is Ben. We could go on forRead More

Recap and Judgments: The Bachelor Season 19 Premiere

The first episode of each Bachelor and Bachelorette season never fails me. It is an event. It’s a fucking holiday. Some lonely hot man or woman is left to meet a batch of potential psychopaths and hopefully his or her life partner is hiding in the rubbish. The arrival of limos filled with women in gowns, the cheesy lines they utter to their future husband, the drunkenness that quickly follows and the accompaniment of stranger drama, jealousy, and crazy eyes… I’m so obsessed. There are a few unwritten rules for theRead More

Signs You Watch Too Many Crime Dramas

You’ve thought about starting a running list of people who might want to murder you, so you could save the police the step of having them question your friends and family and having them be like, “Nobody would want to hurt Sara, everybody loved her” and wasting precious time. But then you think about it and you really can’t think of anyone who would murder you, and are overcome with the crippling fear that if you get murdered the cops will have no leads. If you’re walking to your carRead More

Catching up with Michael Carbonaro

Hopefully by now you’ve seen Tru Tv’s The Carbonaro Effect, which premiered this summer to rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Using a unique blend of magic and prankster-esque comedy, the shows titular magician, Michael Carbonaro, dupes unsuspecting people into believing the impossible.

The 10 Saddest Moments in TV History

Television has a way of getting to us. After season upon season spent investing time, energy, and emotion into the development and nuances of the characters in a given series, we often connect to TV characters in a way that we do not to fictional people in other forms of media. Watching heartbreaking things happen to characters you have come to know intimately often feels personal and devastating. Here are my picks for the ten saddest moments in television history. Oh yeah…and SPOILER ALERT!!!!!, obviously.   #10: The Fresh Prince ofRead More

Silicon Valley Season One Review

HBO’s Silicon Valley ended it’s debut season with the episode, “Optimal Tip-To-Tip Efficiency.” The guys at Pied Piper started the season with a simple algorithm for a compression company. What any of that means, not even main character Richard Hendricks knew until the very end of the season, and even then he changed the whole face of the company in the show’s final moments. Along the way, he had the help of a hilarious group of techies all incubating under the roof of Aviato founder, Erlich Bachman. Hats off to comedian TJRead More
