On Sunday, October 22, The Simpsons will air the 28th installment of the "Treehouse of Horror" series. Since Season 2, FOX has run one of these Halloween-related stories each fall. Early on, these stories were more directly horror-centric, but since then "Treehouse of Horror" has become something of a clearinghouse for stuff the writers can't do during a "regular" episode. And we love it. In honor of this Halloween tradition, we've ranked of every single "Treehouse of Horror" episode.
The second season of Netflix's hit science-fiction love letter to the '80s, Stranger Things, will drop on October 27 and promises more intrigue, more darkness, and a steady increase in the number of Ghostbusters costumes. However, before we dive back into the events happening in Hawkins, Indiana (and also the Upside Down), perhaps it would serve us all well to refresh ourselves on the key characters from the first season of Stranger Things. Who is everybody, and where were they when we left them?
Halt and Catch Fire ended its four-season run on AMC this past Sunday. It was not the monumental event the end of other AMC dramas, such as Mad Men or Breaking Bad, was. The show had its devoted fans, many of them the TV critic types who espoused it frequently as "the best show you're not watching." Those of us who watched it would not argue with that assessment. Halt and Catch Fire found itself dropped into the midst of an ever-expanding TV landscape.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
