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.
