Nominees, winners and bedlam at the Golden Globes

Lars Torres, Staff Reporter

January 15, 2016

The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards were bitingly comedic and lengthy. Celebrating the best in film and television of 2015, the Globes were hosted by veteran comedian Ricky Gervais after lending hosting duties to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler the previous two years. As usual with Gervais, all of Hollywood...

“Teen Wolf” season premiere brings one confusing turn after another

Sierra Cotton, Staff Reporter

January 7, 2016

After the long anticipated wait, Season 5B of “Teen Wolf” has finally arrived. So much time has passed between the first and second part of the season that I almost forgot who some of the characters were and why everyone was fighting. To be honest, I’m still not sure what exactly is going on,...

Alex Clarke, Staff Reporter

January 5, 2016

“The Bachelor” is back for its 20th season of more or less scripted cat-fights, emotional breakdowns and romance. If you have watched the show before, you know the drill. Things usually follow the same format (as with most reality TV, but we still watch it anyway). This year “Bachelor Nation”...

“The Mindy Project” is back in fashion on Hulu

“The Mindy Project” is back in fashion on Hulu

September 18, 2015

“The Mindy Project” is a show that has never concerned itself with consistency. Characters come and go without explanation while others change personalities at the drop of a hat. It’s not about the overarching story, it’s about being entertaining in the moment. The fourth season premiere, the show’s fir...

Terrible people make good TV in “You’re the Worst”

Terrible people make good TV in “You’re the Worst”

Michael Wu, Contributing Reporter

September 18, 2015

Despite being buried under FX’s impressive slate of original series including “Louie” and “Archer,” “You’re the Worst” quickly made itself known as a refreshingly crass take on the already overdone romantic comedy genre. Not only this, but it also quietly established itself as one of th...

“Korra Alone” lives up to its predecessor

Brian Sherman, Staff Reporter

October 17, 2014

The second episode of "The Legend of Korra: Book Four" might have raised an "Avatar" fan’s eyebrow upon hearing its title. "Korra Alone," a callback to the episode "Zuko Alone" from the original "Avatar: The Last Airbender," tells a very emotional tale of Korra’s physical and mental struggle over...

The holiday season is fast approaching. The Cleveland weather has turned miserable overnight. Pretty soon, lethal-sized icicles will form on the eaves of the Peter B. Lewis building, a festive joke from that wily trickster Frank Gehry. And next weekend is Thanksgiving, the traditional start to the winter...

Television Retrospective: Jersey Shore’s Final Season

November 2, 2012

Surfing through channels, a scene of a bitter verbal fight pops briefly across the screen. Further examination will reveal a depiction of people going through their daily lives and routines, nothing too far out of the ordinary. Normally, I enjoy watching reality television, anything from “American ...

An Apology/Love Letter to Cartoon Network.

Drew Scheeler, Film and Television Reporter

October 5, 2012

Hey Cartoon Network! Long time no see! You just turned twenty. Wow. It feels like just yesterday we were growing up together and watching “Hanna-Barbera” shows together and then you starting making your own shows and they were great. I have to confess that I haven’t seen you in quite some time. I m...
