Television is an inherently visual medium, but how important is it to actually watch it? Critics of my viewing methodology insist that I am missing out on the essence of television. I don't deny that I have transformed the experience from a visual to a literary one.
Now you may think it a fool's errand to try to pair anything with Netflix's upcoming Pee-Wee's Big Holiday. Fortunately, the flick and the wine industry share someone in common: Tara Buck.
After its very satisfying series finale, it looked like Mad Men might just end up with another near perfect finale, this time at the Emmy Awards in the form of a record-breaking fifth Emmy as Best Dramatic Series.
While your ambitions likely (hopefully) vary drastically from those of Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, her character provides an impeccable model for the power of career mentoring. Here are some lessons in life-changing mentorship, courtesy of Arya Stark.
Following the series finale montage broadcast during the Emmys Sunday night, there was an online backlash at all the...
Caitlin Kleinschmidt | Off the Shelf Outlander has wrapped up its phenomenally addictive first season and seriously, this show has everything--polit...
For some of us, all that we need to satisfy our shadowy side is a trip to an amusement park so we can scream from a little pink carriage on the Wild Mouse -- but for others, our life experiences have a dark, steamy side.

If we actually think about it, Game of Thrones is more of a fictional historical show than it is straight-up fantasy. Sure, magic, dragons and White Walkers appear in the story, but these are not what drives the plot.
I shoulder my pack and begin the hike upwards. Stopping at an overview I feel like I've been slipped a mild tranquilizer. I swallow a set of tears. Is it the wind, or the view? The air is the freshest I've ever breathed, a salt wash for the soul.
Fashion is fickle and comes in waves, rushing up onto the shores of consciousness, soaking the landscape so it becomes more than a trend, before receding to be re-invented, a decade or two later.
