  • 32-Day NBA Warning: Chandler Parsons Is Chasing His Dream, Winning Your Heart

    What’s that? You were wondering exactly how many days until the start of the NBA season? Well, you’re in luck! The Triangle is counting down the days for all of us.

  • The Right Reasons Podcast: Challenge Champion Wes Bergmann

    There are a lot of ceremonial and official end-of-summer markers, but nothing is as definite as the end of a Challenge season. C.T. finally won his first title this week, which he couldn’t have done without his partner and noted entrepreneur, Wes Bergmann. To celebrate the victory and to recap the insane live reunion show, […]

  • Songs of the Week: Arctic Monkeys, Pity Sex, and Thundercat

    Arctic Monkeys, “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High” Admittedly, I didn’t pay a ton of attention to these guys when they were this year’s model in laddish, sloppy Britpop in the late ’00s. But Arctic Monkeys’ evolution into witty, glam-rockin’ misanthropes has been a welcome (if not surprising) development. The group’s latest, AM, […]

  • The MLB Weekend Top 10: Into the Wild-Card Wilderness

    It’s the last weekend of the regular season, which means it’s also the last MLB Weekend Top 10. That would be sad, in its way, if I weren’t just drowning in Coca-Cola right now. I don’t have any emotions except alert, and so I can’t write a proper eulogy for the Top 10 until this […]

  • NFL Viewing Guide Week 4: Megatron vs. Peanut, Round 12

  • Video on Demand Report: Joss Whedon Goes Back to Basics With Much Ado About Nothing

    The Headliner Much Ado About Nothing Say you’ve just finished directing (and writing) one of the highest-grossing movies in history — a superhero super-epic that super-redeems you from past underperformers. How do you possibly follow up that kind of astronomical success? … Well, fine, you work on a TV spin-off of your franchise. But in […]

  • Cousin Sal's Week 4 Prop Bets

    Tough one last week. I took it on the chin a little. But after attending the Feast of San Gennaro in L.A. last night, I have a belly full of ziti and three pockets full of auto detailing business cards from fellow Italians who for some ungodly reason thought it might be cool to meet […]

  • Breaking Bad Precap for Episode 516: This Is the End. Prepare Yourself.

    Walter White and the Flyswatter of Destiny Andy Greenwald: What do we want when a beloved television show ends? Closure? Hope? Surprise? Or one last twist of the knife? We’ve experienced all four over the course of this past decade of exceptional television. (And that’s without counting TV’s most common exit strategy: not having an […]

  • Breaking Brad on the Grantland Channel: The Decline of Homeland

    Bill’s friend Brad is back to question how a congressman was turned into a chauffeur in the second season of Showtime’s Homeland, how you can kill someone with a text message, and why a CIA agent would be going on weekend romps with a terrorist.

  • Preview: Let's Talk About Masters of Sex, Baby

    It took me a few episodes to acclimate to Showtime’s new Masters of Sex, premiering this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. (For Breaking Bad fans, this is about the time you’ll be prostrate on the floor, covered in tears and the accumulated dust of crushed Xanax pills.) The series is a period piece, set in […]
