Parks and Recreation’ Season 7 Episodes 5 and 6 Recap: “Gryzzlbox” and “Save J.J.’s”

After the emotional crescendo of Leslie and Ron’s rapprochment last week, the focus of last night’s Parks and Rec episodes swoops around among the other members of the gang, to our immediate benefit. These were two of this season’s most thoroughly satisfying episodes, with their scary-silly satire of tech culture and gentrification, the retirement of the Leslie-Ron feud and the return of “treat yo self.” … Read More

50 of the Greatest Literary Moments on TV

It’s probably safe to say that media tends to refer to itself, in one way or another — and referring to literature, as opposed to other forms of pop culture, is one way to make just about anything a little more highbrow. Television, notoriously full of references and allusions, might be the worst/best culprit, and the most fun to hunt through for literary moments — after all, nothing’s more fun than seeing books on the boob tube. Here, you’ll find 50 of the greatest and most memorable literary allusions, shout-outs, cameos, and references on television, as well as real-life author appearances and whole episodes, or even whole seasons, based on… Read More

Today’s Wisdom Comes from Artificially Intelligent Mario, Kendall Jenner and Leslie Knope: Links You Need to See

Everyone is looking for some form of advice. We as humans will turn to our favorite authors, politicians and directors for inspiration on how to live, love, and find our purpose in life. The Wall Street Journal has decided to collect the wisdom of six people they’ve dubbed “luminaries” on the topic of youth. And one of these luminaries is Kendall Jenner. Calling Kendall Jenner a luminary might seem ridiculous, but if you’ve watched Keeping up with the Kardashians, you’ll see she’s often surrounded by a family of overgrown children, so maybe the Journal is on to something. … Read More

Glamorous Pin Ups of Your Favorite TV Characters, from ‘Twin Peaks’ to ‘Broad City’

New York City is a tough, demanding home, leading Broad City‘s Abbi and Ilana into the sort of grungy and gross scrapes that means that they’re rarely seen as glamorous. But through the eyes of artist Emma Munger, Abbi and Ilana are worthy of a bicep tattoo in her series of endearing portraits of pinups. She renders your favorite TV shows and films in sharp and curvy lines, charming portraits that show iconic characters in bewitching style. Munger has great taste and your favorite show is likely included in the below series, from Broad City to Twin Peaks (she’s also selling Men of Twin Peaks Valentine’s Day Cards) to Orange Is the New Black. Here are some of our favorites: … Read More

‘Parks and Recreation’ Season 7 Premiere Recap: “2017” and “Ron and Jammy”

Time jumps on television are a tricky thing to master, and I’d say that it gets even trickier when it’s thrown in at the end of the sixth season of an established half-hour sitcom. While I was grateful for Parks and Recreation‘s surprising twist at the end of last season’s finale (mostly because it meant no stereotypical pregnancy sitcom silliness), I was still a bit anxious about how the series would handle it. Of course, this worry was pointless — it’s Parks and Recreation after all, one of the most consistently hilarious comedies on network television. The season premiere did not disappoint.  … Read More

Does Science Prove You Belong in Pawnee? : Links You Need To See

Have you ever felt like you belonged in another city?

Well, science says you’re right. Some people are apparently more suited to people-watching in a Parisian cafe and others are more suited to a quick stroll in Central Park.
