So, it’s been about an hour of sweaty, bass-thumping dancing at a house party that, in most respects, is identical to every other one I’ve ever been to. I walk outside to get some fresh air (and maybe a welcome whiff of cigarette smoke) when a friend approaches me complaining that a girl she clearly “cancelled” is still following her “finsta,” or “fake Instagram.”

Let me dial this back a little bit.

For everything that’s going wrong in the world, “Last Week Tonight” is a brief light in the otherwise suffocating darkness of endless news cycles and tragedies.

Documentary Now!

You might just believe for a second that you are in fact watching a documentary about a Jonestown-esque cult, but then the show throws out something remarkably absurd such as “orgasm jars,” where cult members must scream their pleasure into a jar in order to preserve it for future moments of darkness.

“HIS MOM IS TOO THICK FOR A WHITE WOMAN!” Baked yelled. “HAVE YOU SEEN ME?” Buzzed replied. I shoved another handful of popcorn into my mouth, wondering what the feminist implications of cartoon body image could be. This remained unanalyzed, but we all agreed that the sister was, ahem, “a c*nt.”

There aren’t many times I go into a new show/documentary/whatever where I am predisposed to despise the overall subject matter. Not that I went into the PBS documentary “Margaret: The Rebel Princess” hating the late Princess Margaret herself, but rather the concept of royalty and well, the British Empire and its brutal domination of large swaths of the planet.

Despite everything it has going for it, “Miracle Workers” is not nearly as good as it should be. And it isn’t immediately clear why that’s true.

"Apex Legends"

“Apex Legends” fixes and innovates many of the problems that make playing Battle Royales frustrating. However, it's not revolutionizing to the point where it will overtake “Fortnite” as the top dog.

I’ve got an idea for television’s next comedy sensation: Quirky, attractive, primarily white singles kind of struggling — but more often drinking — in New York (read: Manhattan or Brooklyn, NOT the Bronx). Now, if this sounds like every sitcom or comedy-drama ever made, that’s because it is. The image of the college-educated, 20-something trying to “make it” in New York is so ingrained in the American psyche that it has basically become the definition of what it means to be in your 20s.
