All 2022 TV Shows Reviewed, Graded, and Ranked From Worst to Best

Note: It would actually be impossible to watch all of the scripted series that came out in 2022, but 100 shows is certainly nothing to sneeze at. I usually just do a movie countdown, but I figured I watched enough TV series to be close to complete for the year’s best shows (somehow I just… Read More »

The Best TV Characters of 2022

This was such an exceptionally good year for TV characters, I had to extend the usual “Top 10” list to 15 mentions. Of course, I did the same thing for the “Worst” list as well, but why focus on the negative? The bottom line is that if you couldn’t find a TV show (and character)… Read More »

The Worst TV Characters of 2022

Note: As anyone who’s ever checked out Alabama Liberal’s countdown of the year’s worst TV characters knows, this list doesn’t really gravitate towards bad characters on bad TV shows, and tries to focus on lousy characters who suck up time on otherwise good series. Of course, there’a a few exceptions to that you’ll probably be… Read More »

Unpopular Vote: Giving Oil Companies Everything They Want Will NOT Lower Gas Prices

It’s been almost comical to see Republicans repeatedly fret about gas/oil prices, but then come up with no credible solutions to actually lower gas/oil prices. Their general “answers” all seem to revolve around the concept that if you give a huge industry everything they want, prices will magically lower themselves out of the goodness of… Read More »

Mom Jokes: The Local Lawyer

The local United Way office realized that it had never received a donation from the town’s most successful lawyer. The volunteer in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute. “Our research shows that out of a yearly income of more than $600,000 you give not a penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like… Read More »

What is the Republican Election Platform?

Good question, and I’m not sure all of them truly know… As others have pointed out, Trump did not have a platform in 2020. While running, he steadfastly avoided even talking about what a second term would look like. “What do you want to do in a second term?” “Make America Great Again and America… Read More »

What is the Bluest State in America? What is the Reddest State?

As someone who’s lived all over the country, and whose blog slogan is literally “Blue in a red state,” people often ask if I can tell them what the bluest state in America is and especially if I know what the reddest state is? The bluest? Hands down, Hawaii… The state is Democratic controlled from… Read More »

All Seasons of “Better Call Saul” Ranked, Reviewed, and Graded

“Better Call Saul” is often called the “Best Show on TV” and sometimes even “the last great TV drama,” referring to how 20’s television is definitely trending more towards “quantity” than “quality.” And it’s true that every year there are a dozen heralded “new” series that feel more like interesting trifles than shows that can… Read More »

Mom Jokes: A Man Walks Into a Pharmacy…

A young man goes into a drug store to buy condoms. The pharmacist says the condoms come in packs of 3, 9 or 12 and asks which the young man wants. “Well,” he said, “I’ve been seeing this girl for a while and she’s really hot. I want the condoms because I think tonight’s ‘the’… Read More »

This Week, Trump’s Cult is Showing Exactly WHY People Call Them a Cult

Before the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, I would often see Trump’s horde (mostly white conservative males, but some women too) complaining about being labeled a “cult.” And then usually they might make horrific false equivalency like “Well, how come Biden voters aren’t called a ‘cult’ but Trump voters are called one?” Republicans are used to… Read More »
