How did The Morning Show become the messiest show on TV?

In its second season, the star-studded Apple TV drama is a chaotic, uneven and ham-fisted yet compulsively watchable rumination on workplace ethics amid the pandemicWatching The Morning Show, Apple TV+’s messy, star-studded morning news drama whose second season premiered this fall, is for me a very vocal experience – the road from concept to execution so bumpy and the choices so chaotic as to provoke several guffaws an episode. The biggest “NO” comes in the beginning of the second season’s thir...

Every The Office Season Ranked Worst To Best

One of my favorite moments from NBC's "The Office" doesn't make many sites' best scene lists, nor is it beloved by fans (or even its cast and crew, to be honest). But I'll just say it: The scene from "Dunder Mifflin Infinity" in which Michael and Dwight retrieve their old-school gift basket from an indifferent client is "The Office" at its best. The scene is funny. The scene is sad. Most importantly, the scene features characters who are striving for greatness as they nosedive towards failure, g...

Why The Seinfeld & Elaine Romance Subplot Went Nowhere After Season 2

Seinfeld did have the makings of a long-term Jerry-Elaine romance, but it ultimately went nowhere - here's why. Seinfeld explored multiple romantic relationships Elaine and Jerry had with other people, but rarely addressed the prospect of bringing the two back together. Instead, Elaine remained one of the core members of Jerry’s circle of friends up until the end of the show in season 9. When Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) was brought into the fold in the show’s second episode, it was explained ...

Morning Line- Sean Shapiro On ESPN And TNT

I’ll admit that my expectations have risen in the past couple of weeks. There was a lot of early hubbub about how Turner and ESPN were going to change hockey coverage, and without proof I was worried it would simply be NBC’s coverage packaged into another, albeit more widely available, platform. But after seeing ESPN make the commitment to a studio show, seeing the Turner media preview, I’m more confident that hockey coverage is headed in a better direction in the United States. The big...
