Mostly, binge watching is a handy way to revisit old shows and catch up on missed episodes of ongoing ones. But it has a destructive dimension when it comes to new series, especially as deployed by the principal promoter of binge: Netflix.
The case against Scott Walker's and his aides turns on the idea of unlawful cooperation. In Wisconsin as in a number of other states, it is illegal for campaigns to coordinate political activities with outside funding groups. That takes a little explaining.
I guess what I'm wondering (in addition to the whole white privilege, famous daughter thing compounded by the conventionally "hot" body and a damn nice set of tits thing) is whether #freethenipple is really the way to actualize change.
How Obama reacts to both the "outing" of the C.I.A. station chief in Afghanistan and the ongoing problems at the Veterans Administration will wind up reflecting on his presidential legacy, for better or worse.

As the Veterans Administration scandal continues, President Obama revealed he just found out this morning that he is President of the United States by...
We care less about sex scandals than financial or other ones. And so we should; trusting a political leader, especially someone who could have been a potential candidate for president, necessitates that she or he can be trusted not to wilfully and negligently abuse the responsibilities of their oath and office.
24 is back on Fox, giving viewers front row seats to the most action-packed 24 hours we'll ever bear witness to. We wondered what a season of some other popular shows would be like if broken down by the same, groundbreaking guidelines: 1 hour = 1 episode.
I realize that in relation to the digital colosseum the sad print tabloid industry is merely a fungus on the underside of a rotting stump. But that doesn't excuse its existence.
My TV and movie selections for the majority of my life have tended to be relatively juvenile. So recently, I've been making an effort to watch "real people movies" and "grown-up shows." Through this personal cinematic transformation, I've noticed a trend in the shows and films I've been introduced to.
Silver's tone was perfect. His remarks were appropriate and substantive. The league's timing was ideal: not too rushed, yet not protracted. While Silver was spot-on, much of the subsequent commentary and analysis misses key points.
Aside from the obvious fact that Olivia would not be welcome at a Clippers game (the character is played by African American actress Kerry Washington), there are a few tips any crisis expert would have advised.
Washington, DC and the right wing outrage machine are all abuzz that the IRS allegedly targeted groups based on their presumed political affiliation. Obviously, that was wrong to do, but let's not forget that there are two IRS scandals.
The DC show is clearly experiencing something of a moment right now, occupying the same position of cultural prominence as, say, the lawyer show did in the late '90s. But what does the DC-based show's dominance mean?
Because Scandal is so much like real life, there are some very important life lessons to take away from it each week, because after all, which one of us can't say we haven't been a part of an international cover-up that seemingly resolves itself in 44 minutes or less? No one, my point exactly.
Mellie may not be a "good" person, but she's a fascinating, hooch and whiskey-guzzling, political badass. The beauty of watching a TV antihero is that while you may not like the fictional first lady, you've probably found yourself cheering her on.
