Bird Box Is Creepy As Hell And I Like It — No one is sure how it started. Or what started it. One day there was a report on the news about a man in Russia who asked his friend to pull over the truck they were riding in and then attacked him, removing his friend's lips with his fingernails.

2 Chainz, Nancy Grace Debate Marijuana Legalization — Rapper 2 Chainz joined television host/justice enthusiast Nancy Grace to discuss the pros and cons of legal marijuana on HLN Tuesday night, and the result was great television. Using the hashtag #Pot2Blame?, Grace tackled marijuana policy at length with a panel of guests that also included addiction specialist Brad Lamm and National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) Chair Norman Kent.

The Irrefutable Best Books of 2014, As Determined by Science* — It's been a trying year here on Sorry Television. Sidetracked by work-and, let's be honest, an endless procession of binge-worthy Netflix inventory-I am set to close out 2014 with a mere 32 books under my belt, near enough to bi-weekly that I should probably rebrand as You're Welcome Television (subtitle: Reading Books Every So Often, Like When...

Chuck Palahniuk’s ‘Beautiful You’ is 240 Pages of What the Whaaat? — As a woman and/or literate person, it's difficult to finish Chuck Palahniuk's latest novel without wanting to throw it across a room.

Empowered by that special brand of self-righteousness unique to personal opinions about popular things, we loudly and enthusiastically debated the merits of the Dunham Phenomenon-two of us against and one (me) in favor,...

On The Road Is The Original ‘Why I Left New York’ Essay — In a cosmic sense, I think it's fair to blame Jack Kerouac for the glorification of Leaving New York.
