Like any American kid raised in the middle of last century, I spent a great many hours in front of the TV. I don't know how people such as Benjamin Franklin or Dolley Madison had any fun at all in their childhoods. What was better than ignoring a beautiful day to hunker in a dark TV room with old Bugs Bunny cartoons? Nothing, that's what....more

An Open Letter to 'Grimm:' Victims Don't Fall In Love with Their Rapists

I watch very few TV shows. One of the few is Grimm. Yes, it has some uneven plotting but I don’t care; I dig it like a backhoe. Even when I roll my eyes at some of the stupid decisions made by characters to force a story-arc, I keep watching because I love the relationship between Rosalee and Monroe. I love that Sargent Wu is a short, Filipino badass. I love that Hank is the practical one and holds his own despite being without any supernatural skills. I love Truble despite the wretched moniker the writers came up with. ...more

Yes, I know this show is terrible. It’s probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen on TV. But, God help me, I also love it. It gives me the same self-indulgent feeling as getting stuck into a bag of BBQ chips, if chips had the power to make me laugh hysterically at their poor construction. So really, this show is infinitely better than a bag of chips...which might just be the highest praise I’ve ever bestowed upon anything. So without further ado, here are the top 5 reasons that you, too, should indulge in CSI:Cyber. ...more

Are You Media Literate?

Every day, I see more clearly through the sticky fog of how culture influences society. I applaud Jennifer Siebel Newson for making Miss Representation, and I can relate to her concerns about the influence of media. The documentary guides the viewer through the landscape of how girls and women are represented in the media, and reasons why the representation of women is overwhelmingly  focused on women as sex objects....more

Remember young Padawan, even Batman fell down

“And why do we fall, Bruce? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.”~ Thomas WayneFailure. Setbacks. Disappointment. It’s all as much a part of our lives as triumph, accomplishment, even victory – it’s just not as welcomed. Yet, there are those who say, “you cannot enjoy real success without having suffered defeat”, just like it is said, “one cannot truly learn to love without also having endured heartache”. Trite maybe, but true....more
