Petition to Release the Cast of CSI: Cyber So They Can Reboot ER 

The late ‘90s were the undisputed golden years for three things: Crushed velvet outfits, Beanie Baby hobbyists, and TV crossovers. Cosmo Kramer popped up on Mad About You, characters flitted from Ally McBeal to The Practice, Detective Munch leapt from Homicide: Life on the Street to Law and Order: SVU, Scully and… »11/02/15 12:30pm11/02/15 12:30pm

Fake Slenderman and Pedophiles Haunted Last Night's CSI:Cyber  

“We never should have gotten them those phones!” a desperate mother cries after her sons run away because of a dastardly app. Ah, CSI:Cyber. After last week’s bilious Black Lives Matter episode, this shit train is back to its regular “Did an Old Man Write This After Watching Dateline?” brand of nonsense. »10/26/15 1:00pm10/26/15 1:00pm

Art Imitates Life, Silicon Valley Imitates

I didn’t get to watch Silicon Valley’s “Binding Arbitration” until this afternoon because of WWDC, so apologies for the late post.

CSI Cyber and the Sick Killshot Ratio of Death

Most CBS procedurals skew conservative—this is, after all, the network that gave us NCIS, essentially a military police porno for old people— but last night’s episode of CSI:Cyber was like an hour-long PSA co-written by Glenn Beck, the Concerned Mothers Against Video Games, and my mom after my brother almost failed AP… »5/13/15 9:25am5/13/15 9:25am

CSI Cyber and the Juice Jacking Airplane Wi-Fi White Whale 

I pride myself on being able to figure out twists on network procedurals, but I hope this is the first and last time I have to type these objectively humiliating lines: CSI:Cyber really pulled the rug out from under me in tonight’s episode! I was genuinely surprised by what I perceived to be an unexpected twist! »4/30/15 5:33pm4/30/15 5:33pm
