Justified Episode 5: Loose Lips

Alex Karras as Mongo in Blazing Saddles

Ava nears the breaking point and is seeking a way, any way, to escape her personal hell, but by this episode’s end she receives only the world’s most boring kiss for her troubles. Also, more and more of Harlan’s denizens are drawn into the Ava-Boyd-Raylan nexus and learn of the big pile of money that’s […]

Scandal Chat: Season 4: Episode 13

VO: I suppose Papa Pope bought Olivia, which equates to how many uncomfortable Sunday dinners? I think the only thing that is making me vaguely gleeful is knowing that hopefully this game of “Where in the World is Olivia Pope?” will end soon. KC: I am super bored with this storyline now and I hope […]

As-I-Play Dragon Age: Inquisition – Day by Day by Day… (Part Six)

So I’ve now reached that part of any game affectionately known as “grinding.” Except in DAI I really am not minding it all that much. It’s nice that a lot of my quests aren’t “fetching” anymore (there were several in the Hinterlands, but the number of “fetch it” quests proportional to “kill it” quests has […]

I Read a Book: Jessica Silbey’s The Eureka Myth Creators, Innovators, and Everyday Intellectual Property

by Raizel Liebler Jessica Silbey’s The Eureka Myth: Creators, Innovators, and Everyday Intellectual Property (2015) is an important book — and will likely be one of the most influential works of legal scholarship this year. [Editor’s note: I’m reading Frank Pasquale’s Black Box Society, which has a similar level of import.] Why? Because it has […]

I Read A Book: John Lie’s K-pop: Popular Music, Cultural Amnesia, and Economic Innovation in South Korea

by Raizel Liebler John Lie’s K-pop: Popular Music, Cultural Amnesia, and Economic Innovation in South Korea is a good, but poorly named book. The book’s strengths are not in the discussion of the present state of k-pop, but in the historical, cultural, and economic answer to how k-pop happened. If you are trying to read […]

Scandal Chat: Season 4: Episode 12

VO: Is this the first time we’ve seen a disclaimer with this show? Was there one with Everything’s Coming Up Mellie? KC: There was. VO: This is one big thing that bothers me — why the hell hasn’t anyone told Abby what the hell is going on? Is there just this idea that since Abby’s […]

Ripped from the Headlines: What Went Horribly Wrong in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’s “The Intimidation Game”

by Kristin Bezio On February 11, 2015, Law & Order SVU aired an episode “ripped from the headlines” of GamerGate, focused on the harassment of feminists in gaming and featuring a central character rather transparently drawn from elements of Anita Sarkeesian, Zoe Quinn, and Brianna Wu. This is its story. I want to begin by […]

Justified Episode 4: Wolf versus Snake, or “I’m the Brains of this Outfit, See?”

Finally. As the curtains are pulled further back on this final season’s plot machinations, it turns out the women are pulling the strings behind all that upheaval and mayhem. It’s just that the men think it’s their doing. And suddenly, all those mirthless jokes about penises and castration take on a different cast. In the […]

This is the Rewatch: Teen Wolf, S1E4 ‘Magic Bullet’

By Taylor Plume. I have been doing these for over a month now. I have no regrets. Everybody should have this much Teen Wolf in their life. It’s so healthy. Nobody is crazy here. That’s ridiculous. Disclaimer: I am once again guilty of paraphrasing dialogue for ‘comedic’ purposes. We open on a pretty blonde woman […]

Justified: The Final Season – Back to Basics

By Cheryl Collins Can we admit that after this once fun and slyly intelligent series dove so steeply into the crapper last season, we were doubtful we’d be back for the sixth and final season? Gentle readers: I confess. I found myself watching this time around, but it was not until the third episode that […]
