Go Home Oscar Nominations, You’re Drunk

Before I go off on a rant about this year’s Oscar nominations, let me say this: 2013 was a pretty good movie year.

The Best Shows Left Off The WGA 101 Best-Written TV Series List

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) has revealed their list of the 101 best-written television series. First, let me say that in general, I’m not fond of lists. Rankings and what gets included can seem very arbitrary, and certain things like “recency-bias” (bias in favor of recently-made shows) and personal preference can skew the results. … Continue reading The Best Shows Left Off The WGA 101 Best-Written TV Series List
