‘Loki’ Just Confirmed a Key Part of Loki’s Sexuality and It Has the Lighting to Prove It

This post contains spoilers for the latest episode of Loki. Marvel Studios has been hit or miss with depicting LGBTQ characters.

Watch TV's stupidest "hacking" scene ever

In this clip below from an episode of NCIS, hackers have already burned through the NCIS public firewall. They're moving so fast that the only conceivable way to stop them is for two people to type on the same keyboard.

David Bowie on Why It’s Crazy to Make Art–and We Do It Anyway (1998)

Kevin Can F**k Himself Review – Falling Down In Sitcom Hell

Series like Schitt’s Creek are even more rare than they seem, but not because of the comedy, characters, writing, or anything else that might immediately pop into your mind, but because getting an ensemble together who can all maintain the same level of insight is all but impossible. Eugene Levy, for example, isn’t a comedic genius with decades of iconic roles because he’s funny, but because, like all comedic geniuses, he knows the exact potential in any scene or exchange. That Annie Murphy (and...
