‘Mr. Robot’ has really grown on me

Mr. Robot is one of those shows that everybody’s talking about. It’s being praised by practically every TV critic in the land, has amassed a huge legion of fans, and seems to have tapped into both our love of technology and our paranoia about the huge corporations who run that technology. Everybody seems to love this show, so why did it take me so long to get into it?

HBO’s ‘The Night Of’ enthralls with suspenseful subtlety

HBO might be better known for resurrected bastards and fire-breathing dragons these days, but The Night Of proves that the network can also deliver a well-crafted and suspenseful crime series. Those longing for the early days of True Detective (and not that horrendous excuse for a second season) will be delighted with this new Noir-esque crime drama.

Everybody needs to stop complaining about Jon Snow spoilers

If you’ve been on Twitter and Facebook for even a couple weeks, you know that people post about movies and TV shows, and those posts sometimes include spoilers. If you truly believe that knowing what happens on a show will destroy your entire life, perhaps it’s best for you to avoid social media (and probably society in general) until you’ve seen the episode. And yes, this post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6.

‘Inside Amy Schumer’ is back and sharper than ever in season 4

You’d be remiss to write off Inside Amy Schumer as “chick comedy” and discount how smart is it. While there are jokes about periods, bikini waxes, and other more female-slanting topics, this is one of the sharpest shows on Comedy Central—and this is a network that is home to my favorite show of all time, South Park. In the season 4 premiere, Amy Schumer brings her trademark sharp, edgy humor to topics like relationship politics, actual politics, and even the Broadway smash Hamilton, all with her witty and unique spin that we love so much.

The best of Butters: South Park’s top 10 Butters episodes

Season 19 of South Park kicked off on Comedy Central this week, and I wanted to do something to celebrate my favorite show of all time, so I decided to create a top ten list. It would probably be difficult for me to narrow down my top 50 favorite episodes, so I decided to focus on one of my favorite non-main characters: Leopold “Butters” Stotch. From tap dancing to becoming a super villain, Butters has gone from just a kid in the background to one of South Park’s most loved characters. Here are my ten favorite episodes featuring Butters.

Counting down the top 20 ‘Key & Peele’ sketches of all time

I was devastated when Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele announced that they were ending Key & Peele, one of my all-time favorite shows. Not only are their sketches hilarious, but they’re also smart and incredibly viral. I could always count on sharing a favorite from the most recent episode to discuss with my friends on Facebook the day after it aired. In celebration of the departure of one of the greatest sketch comedy shows ever, here are my top 20 favorite Key & Peele sketches.

Game of Thrones, Outlander, and TV’s rape craze

From Sansa Stark to the brutal finale of Starz’s Outlander, it seems like TV is obsessed with rape these days, but there’s a difference between a scene that’s hard to watch because it’s moving and a scene that’s hard to watch because it’s an unpleasant viewing experience. Here we dive into two of this year’s most famous (or infamous) rape scenes and discuss how sexual assault is presented on TV. Warning: spoilers ahead!
