“Speaking as someone who’s covered politics for 20 years, Jonah Ryan terrifies me. I find his mindless, toxic fear-mongering a dangerous addition to our already divisive political climate. Tomorrow morning, we’ll be live with exclusive coverage of Congressman Ryan’s rally in Youngstown, Ohio. Only on CNN.”
I already knew and loved that Active Child song and had mixed reaction. On one hand, I was taken out of the moment because I know and love the song, on the other, I thought it was a great song choice for the moment and hoped viewers who weren’t familiar with it would notice it and send some money Active Child’s way…
Agreed! Scientology was clearly the punchline for that “Dad found a new religion” joke
Sure, that’s the point. It’s not a case of the actor being incapable; Mehcad could rise to the occasion if allowed. The writers just never give him anything to work with. James is good and solid and very, very dull, and there’s no reason for it. He could be good and solid, but also funny and weird, like Brainy or Wynn…

Like the gem part of Steven, when I ask Kinja what happened to AV Club it looks upon me with a blank expression and screams “SHE’S GOOOONE”
How can I tell the difference between Snow Patrol and Coldplay, they’re both white, anodyne, and cold.
One of the first posts each week was by a Riddler account who’d post a riddle based on the week’s episode. Man I miss that shit.
I spent much of the episode expecting Nia to find out Kara is Supergirl before even Lena.
“But you somehow can’t suspend your disbelief for James not figuring out who Liberty is BEHIND A MASK?”
Hartley Sawyer posted a picture of the two of them back to back on Twitter, and man it is something.
I was fully expecting Maggie to continue snogging Parker WHILE continuing to suck up to Lucy because I’m so used to that from TV characters by this point. Being horribly selfish in relationships is just....what people on TV DO.
“That and the brief sign that this version of Charmed might actually include non-European witchcraft gives me hope.”
It was Grime
