By Melissa AlbertNovember 24, 2010
Because this episode is all about bullying, I’d like to start here, with the best addition to the It Gets Better project yet. Because everything that Pixar does is better than everything anybody else does. Okay, now wipe the tears out of your eyes. It’s... More  →

The Best Background Characters

By Dan_BergsteinNovember 18, 2010
In books and in movies, there are always background characters. These folks don’t do much. Some may have a line of dialogue. Others simply stand around the main character. But they can capture your imagination. Take Twilight’s Emmett—he's a background character, but he’s less a... More  →

The SparkNotes Gleecap: Season Two, Episode 7 (The Substitute)

By Melissa AlbertNovember 17, 2010

Imagine you're a guy who's naturally spectacular—super smart, from a distant planet, robin's egg blue. You should be destined for greatness, but you spend your life being upstaged by a dude who's slightly luckier, slightly more spectacular, and considerably less blue. Let's say you're initially...

The SparkNotes Gleecap: Season Two, Episode 6 (Never Been Kissed)

By Melissa AlbertNovember 10, 2010
This episode was all about heartache, the kind that every high schooler feels—except for Brittany and Santana, because they are sexy, soulless robots. Kurt’s dealing with a nasty football bully (much more on that later), Puck’s out of juvie and badder than ever (bad as... More  →

Confession: I Don't Like Doctor Who

By Dan_BergsteinNovember 10, 2010
I really, really want to be a Doctor Who fan. I’ve tried to love the show and get into it, but I just can’t. Doctor Who isn’t bad, but it isn’t great. Before you throw balls of hate and fire, please read the explanation. The sci-fi... More  →
