  • The Bridge Season 1, Episode 10 Recap: Mastermind Serial Killers Are Like Snowflakes in 'Old Friends'

    Last night’s episode of The Bridge reminded me of a favorite joke. I won’t bore you with the setup, especially since the punch line speaks for itself: “But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?” In other words, I was getting serious Mary Todd vibes from “Old Friends.” It was an episode that […]

  • The All-22 All-Stars: Bobby Wagner, the Seahawks' Tackling Machine

    The All-22 All-Star Team is an attempt to provide some insight on the NFL’s 22 most underappreciated players. Some will be All-Pros who haven’t fully gotten their due; some will be names few casual fans have ever heard. All will, for one reason or another, have been overlooked. If 15-year-old Bobby Wagner had gotten his […]

  • Toronto Film Festival Diary: Scarlett Johansson, Space Aliens, and Jesse Eisenberg vs. Jesse Eisenberg

    These are the last days of this festival, and they’re quiet. The cross-checking and confusion has dissipated.

  • Simple Math: Why the Indians Will (Kinda) Make the Playoffs

    The Cleveland Indians, who haven’t made the playoffs since 2007, just finished a fairly brutal stretch of baseball.

  • Bill & Ted 3: The Dark Is Rising

    Have you ever found yourself lounging around in your Johnny Utah commemorative T-shirt, ordering the Blu-ray special edition of A Walk in the Clouds while listening to “Neodammerung” from The Matrix Revolutions official soundtrack and wondering Why isn’t there more news about Keanu Reeves? I mean, this is Neo we’re talking about, Johnny Mnemonic, the […]

  • About Last Night: No Way, Jose

    In case you were busy getting bad news from Dr. James Andrews, because that guy has never once given good news in his life, here’s what you missed in sports on Wednesday: Miami starter Jose Fernandez dominated with his arm and bat, throwing seven stellar innings and blasting his first career home run, as the […]

    Canelo Alvarez and the search for the next Oscar De La Hoya.

  • Men in Blazers: USMNT, England, and Special Guest Bob Bradley
