Fin: The Earth Day Special at 25, seeking Amy Schumer and the best fake oral history ever

Happy Earth Day. And just because the guy who founded it- or rather, made a claim that he founded it that’s since been disputed- went on to murder someone, all environmental and ecological efforts are null, void and fraudulent. I’m always amused by the annual resurfacing of that particular right-wing talking point. It’s like the more »

Yes, I know it’ll be available online or streaming or in the cloud probably forever. But I can’t bring myself to delete the Justified finale from my DVR. Same with the last Colbert. Just more »

DVD Review: Swamp People Season 5

This one is personally rather exciting for me; I haven’t had the opportunity to watch “Swamp People” in quite some time, and as far as I was concerned, it’s one of the best reasons to watch the History Channel. Our friends out at Lionsgate sent over a copy of “Swamp People Season 5″ for us more »
