Review: Battle of the Sexes Is a Nuanced Portrait of the Human Beings Behind the Historic Match

4.5/5 stars.

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. As great as the show is (and as much deeper than that premise as it digs), that also attracts plenty of people who don't seem to grasp that the message of the show is not that being a jerk is actually great and totally OK, even if they were anywhere near as smart as Rick Sanchez (they are not).

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.
