“Devil You Know” – BOARDWALK EMPIRE Season 5, Episode 6

“Ain’t nobody ever been free.” Rest in peace to both the calmest and craziest faces on television. BOARDWALK EMPIRE’s antepenultimate episode finally starts dropping some major characters, and manages to efficiently tie off significant corners of the show, opening up the final episodes to refocus on the major concerns from the first two seasons, when it was … Continue reading

A Review of ‘The Skeleton Twins’ Without Spoilers Because Ya, You Should Go See This Movie

Welp, this review was basically over before it began, because on the binary scale of movie watching, the new Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig Dram-Com (??) ‘The Skeleton Twins‘ gets a wholehearted and resounding 1. Oh, you didn’t know there was a new SNLesque comedy coming out? Well that’s because it’s really, really not an SNL movie. … Continue reading
