This past spring, I visited New Orleans to pay a visit to the set of Preacher: Season 2. And what a set it was, as the show was filming at a huge and opulent mansion that day. I have to be vague about what exactly was occurring, but it did involve Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) once more using his “word of God” abilities to make others do his bidding – and Tulip (Ruth Negga) responding with her trademark deadpan “Really, Jesse?” vibe, in another fun and funny sequence.
Debuting Friday on Netflix, GLOW is a wonderfully entertaining and involving series that tells a fictionalized account of the making of the real life GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) show from the 1980s. Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men) stars in the series as Ruth, a struggling actress who finds herself part of a world she knows nothing about – but that she becomes determined to fully commit to.
Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below. A combination of Peak TV, Peak Me Traveling and CW not regularly making episodes of iZombie available to press early stopped me from being able to do weekly reviews this season, but I definitely wanted to jump back in to review the two-part season finale, which kicked off this week. And man, “Looking for Mr. Goodbrain Part 1” sure had a lot going on! Katty is dead, and Chase may be the killer!
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
