Renegado takes a look at the pilot that started the huge phenomenon that is Adventure Time. Get ready for an insane trip... literally!
Zorro de Mayo goes Japanese with the first and probably only anime based on Zorro. Also, the main character is blonde!
Lizzie, Jane, Charlotte, Pride and Prejudice as a morality tale, and why Ursa likes Lydia a lot better now. In the final episode of her Pride and Prejudice series, she looks at the Emmy Award-winning YouTube series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries!
Zorro de Mayo continues as Renegado takes a look at the different adaptations of the character in animated form. In part 1, he's covering The New Adventures of Zorro (1981) and The New Adventures of Zorro (1997). Wait... What?
“If you film a duck and say it’s not a duck, it’s still a fucking duck. No thinking person in their right mind could look at this scene and call it ‘consensual’.”
“Portlandia seems to be a decent show. So of course Netflix thought since I watched that, I’d enjoy a reality show about drag queens.”
“Here’s what everyone’s missing: Jaime never really changed. Indeed, the defining flaw in his character is his complete inability to change.”
“Fallon might not be that funny, and he might not get stellar ratings, but he seems to be going where TV is headed: bite-sized chunks of entertainment that can be shared on blogs and social media and hopefully get people interested enough to actually watch the show (or at least DVR it).”
A week before its grand 50th anniversary, Sofie takes a look back at the phenomenon of Doctor Who (which also happens to be one of her favorite shows), and talks about why she finds it so appealing.

Phil Buni's March Medical Madness concludes later than expected (he was busy with Easter--hah!) with this brief rant on the hospital comedy/drama Scrubs.

To celebrate Thanksgiving, as well as the release of the new Super Mario Bros. game, Mendo recalls the moment where a vestigial offshoot of a beloved kids' TV classic collided with the soon-to-be most controversial pop act in history!
“Agents of SHIELD is undoubtedly a weak show—staying awake through all six episodes again to write this post was a bit of a challenge—but it doesn’t appear that great, memorable TV was ever really the goal here.”
“Hardly a full-tilt camp classic, but somewhat leaning in that direction thanks to the presence of Shatner and West and Cotten and Cassevetes all tramping around the desert in man-skirts and chest plates.”
Mendo takes a look at the existentially crushing world of '80s sitcom favorite ALF, and his one and only holiday episode, the two-part "ALF's Special Christmas". Can this show about the last survivor of a dead planet being stuck with a boring family that refuses to call him by his real name possibly get any more depressing? What do you think?
