The gang from Always Sunny probably needs some help, if we’re being honest here

Over the course of the last thirteen years, fans have watched the gang from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia slowly destroy themselves with drugs, alcohol, and outlandish antics. It seems each successive season ups the ante on how much damage Charlie, Mac, Dennis, Dee, and Frank are willing to inflict on their brains…

The Good Cop is charmingly simplistic—and totally forgettable

C+

There’s nothing innovative or remarkable about The Good Cop, which, for a Netflix series, almost becomes remarkable in and of itself. The series’ mundanity—especially enhanced by sharing a release date with the delightfully strange Maniac—feels out of place on the prolific streaming service, instead playing more like…

Demi Adejuyigbe’s “September” dance is back, with a charitable bonus

Songwriter Allee Willis says there’s no real significance to the date that Maurice White reminisces upon in the first line of Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September”; “the 21st night of September” just fit the towering funk jam. Little did Willis or White expect that they’d be forever circling a square on the pop-culture…

BoJack Horseman creator confirms: Yep, Mel Gibson and Harvey Weinstein inspired new season

Get used to seeing Captain Marvel punching the shit out of that old lady

The first trailer for the upcoming Captain Marvel excited the internet for plenty of reasons. It has the talented Brie Larson doing superhero stuff; it shows a beloved comic book character adapted for the big screen; it finally gives a woman a starring role in one of the bazillion Marvel movies dominated by dudes—and,…

You should be watching Dietland, it’s really—ah shit, it’s canceled

Whatever the flaws of Dietland’s first season—and there were flaws—AMC’s ambitious, intriguing series was a welcome presence. It told a story, adapted from Sarai Walker’s book of the same name, about a woman and her body that didn’t focus on self-control or finding love despite who you are. Instead, Dietland dwelled…
