Homeland: Quinn goes Rambo

Previously on Homeland, Sekou’s van blew up, taking out Sekou and much of a three block radius of Manhattan. The good news is there were only two other deaths. The bad news is the...

The Old Dead Truth Bit

The Once Free Press: Excuse me, sir, uh, madam, I’m here to ask about the statement the President’s press secretary made about the crowd size at the inauguration… Kellyanne Conway: Ah yes! The one...

The Exorcist: Mama's back

Young Regan MacNeil and her mom the movie star are on a talk show. We can tell it’s the ’70’s by Regan’s groovy shag haircut. Young Regan looks like Linda Blair, and Chris looks nothing at all like Sharon Gless, but a lot like Ellen Burstyn…
