On What Do TV Shows Want To Be When They Grow Up?

Part of this is that Fargo lends itself well to the things that Prestige Television care about - that is, white men who commit violence and, sometimes, their wives. We could imagine Pulp Fiction doing it, but probably not Shawshank. Point Break for sure.

I'll tell you what I want, though: the teevee adaptation of Karate Kid.

On Why Do People Do It In The Women's Room?

@stuffisthings And now I feel like they've basically covered it. We can close the book on THAT city.

On We Can't Spend Ourselves Rich Anymore

"I don’t see how you can understand our current unhappy economic state without some sort of Marx-inspired analysis."

On Raymond Chandler, In Order

Lady in the Lake below Big Sleep? You're a monster and a cretin. Only one of these books ends with a CAR CRASH at a DAM under GUARD AGAINST THE AXIS, Balk, and it's not The Big Sleep.

On Key Perplexing

"It may seem trivial, and that's because it is" should be written on a post it note and stuck to the top of every tab.

On Oh Man, 'True Detective,' Right?

@IBentMyWookie The really weird thing is how much I'm enjoying Helix, which is far worse written.

On Oh Man, 'True Detective,' Right?

Absolutely true. Or put another way: The writing wasn't that good. The camerawork, acting, and music all were.

On The "Light Thinking Followed By Typing" Industry Strikes Again

In all seriousness, I probably have about 1200 words in me about how Flappy underscores that the most important part of game design is a game over screen that makes you mad enough to try again.
