    Results on the field have been poor and marketing outreach off the field abject, but the fact is, as problematic as each of these symptoms have been, they’re just that: symptoms. The root problem — and here’s where New York City need to watch carefully — has been the very project itself.

  • ‘True Detective’ Precap: A Million Yellow Kings Dancing on the Head of a Pin

    For lack of a better jump-the-shark-esque term, we can start calling this the “Doc Jensen moment” — the point in the run of a mystery-based TV show when the building leaves Elvis, so to speak, and the story the actual show is telling gets eclipsed by the story the show’s fan base is telling itself about the show.
