Rick and Morty’s Dan Harmon Is Pissed off About Sexist Harassment of the Show’s Writers

Rick and Morty is, like perhaps too many works of fiction, about a genius who gets away with being a massive jerk, at least in part.

Jimmy Kimmel Is Right About Health Care, and He’s Not Letting Liars off the Hook

Yesterday, Jimmy Kimmel once again weighed in on health care, with Senate Republicans considering yet another horrible bill to replace the Affordable Care Act. Again, he faced accusations that he was just a celebrity getting in over his head, and the bill's authors said he just didn't understand it, while actual analysis of the bill indicates that he understands it better than they do—or they're being deliberately disingenuous. There's no third option.

It has been a rough few months since November 9, 2016. W weren't too happy about the election results, and we were in the good company of about 65 million U.S. voters (give or take), despite how many times we've heard that the person they voted for should just "go away." As much as I disagree with that stance, I also was not quite ready for her to go on The Late Show and talk about her loss.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch has had her own TV shows before, but they were decidedly more family-friendly and comedic.

What’s the First Piece of Media That Absolutely Terrified You?

When we're young, we're especially susceptible to a fear-reaction, as it can be difficult to differentiate between what's real and possible, and what's not.
