  • Survivor Finale: Like It or Not, Tyson Earned the Title

    Until last night, Tyson Apostol was best known in Survivor circles for his incredibly stupid move in Season 20, Heroes vs. Villains. The unimpeachable Boston Rob hatched a scheme that would have weakened Russell Hantz’s (his nemesis) alliance, and the plan relied on Tyson adhering to it. But Tyson fell for the deceptions of the […]

  • My City of the Year: GTA V’s Los Santos

  • NFL Week 15 Winners and Losers: Jamaal Charles for MVP, Peak Eli Manning Face, and All the Jason Garrett

    Winners Jamaal Charles: Playing against Jamaal Charles in fantasy yesterday was traumatizing. I’m not sure it’s something from which I come back. Charles’s 215-yard, five-touchdown day makes him the MVP of every fantasy league in which he was still a factor, but it’s probably time his name came up in discussions about the actual MVP. […]

  • SNL: John Goodman Gets in the Holiday Spirit in His 13th Hosting Turn

    John Goodman took his 13th turn as host on SNL this weekend in the second-to-last episode of the year. While this episode wasn’t the strongest (and was the second in a row to feature a joke about whistles — what does it all mean?), it wasn’t by any means a disaster, and so far the […]
