Scandal Chat: Season 4, Episode 16

VO: I don’t know if it’s something with our network or what here — this episode also was bumped later thanks to the WIAA high school basketball tournaments — but I’m suddenly plunged into a fight between Leo and Abby, probably regarding sex, because on this show, it’s either sex or politics. I mean, we […]

I Read A Book: Kim Gordon’s Girl in A Band

by Keidra Chaney Sonic Youth has always been one of those bands I respected more than I actually liked but I have long admired Kim Gordon, who seemed to embody cool. While she didn’t directly inspire me to pick up a bass, I won’t deny that seeing her be so badass in the “Bull In […]

Scandal Chat – Season 4: Episode 15

VO: Apologies on the lateness of this recap — in Wisconsin, the WIAA girls basketball championships took over our airwaves and I wasn’t able to watch Scandal in my usual fashion.

That means we won’t get to see much of Derek, our favorite failwolf. Ian Bohen and J.R. Bourne will not be appearing in ‘the first […]

Scandal Chat – Season 4: Episode 14

VO: I’ll say this right off the bat — when I saw the previews for this two weeks ago, I just kind of sucked in a breath and went “hooo boy.” Maybe it’s because we’re currently reviewing the news about the Department of Justice’s findings on Ferguson and everything is still fresh, but I really […]

Review: Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu

by K. Hopson Before I begin, I must confess that I’m very behind on my anime viewing. I have two whole seasons of backlog because being an adult sucks. Excuse my lateness. This is very daunting for me, but I’m also pretty excited about getting back into the swing of things because I’ve seen a […]

Justified Episode 6 Recap: Hard Choices

Leadership is making the hard choices, we are told early on in this episode, and cutting losses when necessary — even if those losses are human. There was much clearing of dead wood in this latest episode of Justified, “Alive Day.” The inevitable final confrontation between Boyd and Raylan comes into view as Boyd’s rage, […]
