From the Rapture to bad prom themes to the Royal Wedding (and more!), enjoy some of our favorite jokes from one year ago.
What?? Regis Philbin filled in for Piers Morgan Tuesday night and interviewed David Letterman and I missed it?!? Luckily, most of it seems to be here.—BK
You stay classy, America's Most Watched Network!
Fascinating, meaty discussion with three TV showrunners: Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad), David Milch (Deadwood, Luck), and Matthew Weiner (Mad Men). (Contains a few spoilers if you've never watched those shows.)—BK
More on the fallout, including some cast and writing staff reactions, and a look at what may lie ahead for the show.—BK
Sepinwall does a great job of outlining all the reasons this could go wrong, and I'm inclined to agree with him.—BK
We're pretty sure they're not saying "Boo-urns".
In my experience, when a TV show loses its creator, the quality always declines; especially when that creator had a unique voice and a strong vision. I hope that won't be the case here, but I'm not very optimistic.—BK
It seems like we're incapable of talking about "Girls" without making everything into a big to-do, but this thoughtful piece makes about as little a to-do as I've seen so far. Refreshing.—JM
All my favorite people are nerds. Reading this analysis of the nerd psyche reminded me of all the reasons I love them.—JS
So phrenology's looking pretty good right about now, huh?
Posnanski, God bless him, tries to answer the question of whether fictional baseball scout Scotty Carson double-crossed the Judge by signing Roy Hobbs in The Natural. Just another reason why the internet is beautiful.—BK
Not particularly condemning, this is the first really interesting thing I've read about Mitt Romney. He still comes across as a privileged, awkward guy with a pedestrian sense of humor, but this is far more three-dimensional.—TG
New Girl staked a claim as one of the best and funniest shows on TV this season. (Article is full of spoilers if you haven't watched the show, including this week's season finale.)—BK
We're going to have mindless summer action movies; that's a given. I know I'm excited when one actually turns out great (Iron Man, last year's Mission: Impossible). But even that comes with a downside.—JS
But if you hang toilet paper in the improper underhand fashion, you're on your own.
I don't agree with every part of the analysis, but anytime someone takes a closer look at my favorite album ever, I'm in.—BK
This is a great write-up of Community's virtues, and actually gives me greater appreciation for the "Virtual Systems Analysis" episode, which didn't wow me on first viewing.—JS
I always suspected that the secrets of existence lay deep within the game of Tetris. Now we know for sure.—JM
Credit for pointing out this link goes to my fancy-pants brother, who attended Harvard with the author.—JM
Pretty interesting, except where it's shrilly over-the-top. Suggesting that the ironic use of "thug life" is racist implies you think all thugs are racial minorities – which sounds pretty racist to me.—JS
