Ahhh, binge watching. I love it and I hate it. Thinking of that time I watched 16 episodes of Community in one day fills me with pride, just as remembering how I spent that whole day slouched on the sofa, smelly and covered in popcorn kernels and spilled salsa, makes me feel the tiniest bit bad about the direction my life has taken.

A lot of people don’t even know that Welsey Wyndam-Pryce Alexis Denisof was in The Avengers. But oh, he was.
