    Mad Men S7 E8 ‘Severance’ Review
    Posted in: Featured, TV

    Naturally, spoilers follow. Mad Men is ending this spring. If I keep saying it maybe eventually I’ll be okay with it. But all personal feelings aside, the cable drama that put AMC on the map in terms of original programming and ran the pass thrown by The Wire and The Sopranos into the end-zone to […]

    House of Cards Season Three: Hitting It Out Of Nats Park
    Posted in: TV

    Disclaimer: SPOILERS ABOUND. (Though, if you haven’t watched the entirety of season three already, I’m not sure what you’ve been doing.) I love Kevin Spacey. That’s not the spoiler. But, like—I love him. If Kevin Spacey were to walk into a bar and ask me to go home with him at the risk of losing […]

    Behind The Throne: Tyrion Lannister and Richard III
    Posted in: Featured, TV

    SPOILER WARNING: If you aren’t caught up on Game of Thrones, you probably should go take care of that before reading this article. Especially considering the limited amount of time you have to catch up before the new season starts. Imagine for moment: you are a commoner in a pre-industrial kingdom. After a hard day’s […]

    Aziz Ansari, LIVE! Review
    Posted in: TV

    Aziz Ansari is a rare breed. I don’t mean it in the way it sounds—plenty of comedians do what he does, perhaps better. Rather, Ansari has an acute ability to bring what might border on a shrill and potentially annoying demeanor together with layered, smart humor for an end product that is equal parts wacky […]

    Posted in: Movies, TV

    And to further borrow from the brilliance of (500) Days of Summer… It’s these cards and the movies and the pop songs, they’re to blame for all lies and the heartache, everything.

    The Newsroom in the Age of Infotainment
    Posted in: Featured, TV

    Buzzfeed is not real news. Don’t get me wrong, I love Buzzfeed just as much as the next guy, but it’s not. The Onion is hilarious, too. Their headlines are poignant and clever every time. That said, it’s still not news. Why don’t we add Jon Stewart’s Daily Show and Stephen Colbert’s recently ended Colbert […]

    NerdGlow’s Netflix Recommendations Pt. 10
    Posted in: Movies, TV

    Black Mirror From Claire Rychlewski The first time I heard the title Black Mirror, I thought, “Oh, I get it! The black screens of our phones and computers and televisions really serve as a reflection of humanity’s current state. Cool.” It’s not often that I connect with a work’s title so instantly, but Black Mirror […]

    NerdGlow’s Netflix Recommendations Pt. 7
    Posted in: Movies, TV

    Walking Dead – Season 4 From Jackson Lewis Compared to the rest of the series up to this point, season four of The Walking Dead is largely disappointing. The first five episodes are clearly filler, and many episodes afterwards serve little purpose other than exposition or portraits of characters that the audience has little reason […]

    On New Girl, Zooey Deschanel, And Chilling Out On The Hate
    Posted in: TV

    I like Zooey Deschanel. There. I’ve said it. For a very long time, probably since 500 Days of Summer came out and that cultural archetype that we’ve all come to embrace for those unordinary, quirky female characters was coined, I’ve felt a very intense pressure to hate Deschanel. Or perhaps, what she, singularly, seemed to represent. Friends, peers, […]
