Because Sometimes An Unhealthy Obsession With TV Is Rewarded……

I’m very privileged to have secured a new side gig writing op-ed pieces for Tribune Media via ScreenerTV.  Please check out my first two pieces if you have a moment.   The first is a bit of a love letter to the show Lucifer, albeit within a larger exploration of the “guilty pleasure” phenomenon as it applies to our TV viewing choices (when it shouldn’t):   http://zap2it.com/2016/09/lucifer-fox-myth-of-guilty-pleasure/ The second piece explores the rise of the “trainwreck heroine” in TV and film, inspired by Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s masterfully wrought show, Fleabag: http://zap2it.com/2016/09/jessica-jones-fleabag-homeland-trainwreck-heroine/ Will post future articles here as they are published.

She’s just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to DIE, DIE, DIE! Is this an awesome movie?  HELL YES.  Do I want to talk about much else beyond Eva Green’s role in it? Nah. Guess who is not filling her days worrying about whether her pores are small enough, her tits are big enough, and if she’s underage enough to appear in a Robin Thicke music video?
