Best TV shows set in every state

Forget the airplane , the automobile, and the iPhone. The greatest American invention in history is hands down the television. Not only has it given us a way to see the world without leaving our living room, but it was also an electronic babysitter long before the tablet and gave families something to do at dinner other than talk to each other. Over the 70-plus years TV has been around we’ve seen thousands of shows, set all kinds of places around our great land. We took a look through TV histo...

Galentine's Day and Micro-Holidays

"What is Galentine's Day? It's only the best day of the year." Since Leslie Knope, Deputy Director of Parks and Recreation, uttered these words during an episode of Parks and Recreation in 2010, the birth of Galentine's Day has allowed all women—no matter their relationship status—to get together, usually in the form of a brunch, and celebrate each other. Over the last nine years, brands and retailers have begun to acknowledge the holiday as it gains popularity beyond fans of the sitcom and in...

Real restaurants from TV and movies

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries , bars, and the like are often a vital part of a story’s plot. Maybe it’s where a group of friends have coffee and spend time together or where two characters plan a murder. We all wish places like Central Perk from Friends existed or that we could visit The Three Broomsticks in Harry Potter for a Butterbeer. Unfortunately, while shows and movies use a myriad of filming locations all over the globe, not all of these are accessible — or even real — for fans to visit...

27 Galentine's Day Gifts To Get Your Inner Circle

Valentine's Day is one of those things, like sushi or Pete Davidson, that you either love or really hate — for good reason. If you're blissfully matched, February 14th is an excuse to get dressed up, drink a little too much Champagne and pull out that sexy little lingerie set you got on markdown during one of last month's Boxing Day sale s. But, if you're not romantically attached, it can be kind of cringey. Or rather, it was, until people (a.k.a. the writers behind Parks and Recreation) wised...

Where to volunteer in NYC

In the words of Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place — though actually posed by philosopher T.M. Scanlon — what do we owe to each other? We’re all here together, so we should probably work together to make things better. Volunteering can help us do exactly that, and it does a wealth of good for everyone, including those being helped, the world around us, and ourselves. New York City has its fair share of problems, but it also has a number of places willing to address them. Finding somewhere to ...

In a Dark Year, 2018’s Film and Television Made the Case for Kindness and Decency

You don’t need me to tell you that 2018, like 2017, has been a uniquely dark time. (Well, you shouldn’t need me to tell you that.) One purpose of an entertainment website, and indeed popular culture in general, is to provide a distraction from or a refraction of the world at large. But as that world grows grimmer, it’s unsurprising to see a lot of popular culture that serves as a funhouse-mirror version of our world’s grimness. I mention this not because I want to wallow in that grimness; inst...
