Wednesday links, because I haven’t done that in a while, sorry: I feel a good bit vindicated. After I left Zero Dark Thirty with my wife on Sunday, she was doing most of the talking because she LOVED it. After a while I said, “I think it was a pretty harsh commentary on women in [...]

ABC, the Accommodating Broadcast Channel

If nothing else, you have to thank ABC for being so accommodating with its 2012-13 schedule. “Awwww, how sweet! You put that Tim Allen garbage and the new Reba McEntire retread all the way out there on Fridays so it won’t bother me. You shouldn’t have!

We’re loaded today, right to it: The only news that could have been worse for the next Wolverine movie would be if Hugh Jackman got pinched for DUI then started popping middle fingers, shouting racial slurs at the officers and [...]
