For my last A&E article ever (yikes!), I decided to write about my favorite comedy show of all time: “Community.” This show is seriously so dear to me. I typically don’t like sitcoms much. Sure, they’re good for bingeing, and they offer the occasional opportunity to guffaw or chuckle aloud, but most of the ones I’ve watched are pretty bland. “Community” is anything but. Set at Greendale Community college, the show begins with a collection...

I don’t think I’m an expert on relationships by any means. I’ve made stupid mistakes””I’ve been hurt, I’ve hurt others””all the typical ups and downs of romantic interactions. But for this article, I want to talk about one really important lesson I’ve learned””a lesson that many people never learn. I believe that writing someone off (romantically) because of the color of their skin is a terrible mistake. So many people I know do this. Examples...

A great thing about comics is that, in my opinion, they are as ubiquitous as film or TV or any other medium. Saying you read comics should really mean nothing. It just means you like comics! But for some reason, comics have mostly remained, in the public’s eye, a guy’s thing. Perhaps the image of beefy male superheroes saving women who are curvy and skinny at the same time is too omnipresent for most people,...

Who likes Superman? Raise your hand. Now, I know I can’t see you through the paper, but I’m guessing that there are very few of you. I used to be one of you! I used to think, “Man. Superman has got to be the most boring, overrated, and pointless superhero ever.” I mean, his one weakness is a weird rock. He’s so morally righteous that he wouldn’t hurt a fly. Bland was the word that...

I love watching movies for lots of reasons. A big reason, though, is naming the actors: I like to imagine my mind as a catalog for actors’ faces and names and past films, so watching a film is an exercise for my brain! This gets super fun when cameos””famous people who are supposed to be easily recognizable but are playing minor roles””come into the picture. With that in mind, here’s a guide to some of...

With the advent and incredible popularity of things like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBOGo, and, well, less-than-legal sites, we now have basically unlimited content at our fingertips. Plus, we’re in college, and that typically means a lot more free time in which to view said content! Therein a dangerous situation arises. When I approach a new-to-me television series, how should I proceed? Should I try to watch as much as I can as fast as...

So. It’s finally happened. Fox has announced they’re going to make a Deadpool movie. Its release date is supposedly February 12, 2016. No other details have been confirmed, although there are rumors about the script writer and the lead actor (it’d better freaking be Ryan Reynolds, who, if you didn’t know, portrayed him in that cinematic masterpiece, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”). Also, it has to be rated R. Please? Naturally, I’m stoked. I love Deadpool, and...

Dear “The Wire,” You are the greatest television series that ever was or ever will be. I’m sorry if that puts a heinous amount of pressure on you, and I understand such a superlative statement invites hordes of angry dissenters. But in the end, I’m not all that sorry. You are one of the great loves of my life, so I know anything I say about you sounds as though it should be taken with...
