Stacia, When we last left Olivia Pope and the “parade of monsters,” as my play-cousin Linda Holmes calls them, the putative queen of the fixers had just been outed as the President’s mistress. Blowing up the secret of Liv and Fitz’s not-terribly-secret relationship — the central tension of the show, really — is some ballsy-stakes-raising. Another Read More
PB’s own Joel “blackink12” Anderson had himself a hell of a first week at Buzzfeed, topped off with an appearance on Melissa Harris-Perry’s show on MSNBC Saturday morning.
I was reading this piece on the 10 most promising network pilots and while I was excited to see some of these shows, I have to admit that I was slightly disappointed that we would go another year without seeing my television dream come true. I long for the day when a network will put Read More

An old nemesis of Olivia has some, uh, interesting ideas about how to get elected to the White House.
In both of these episodes, the show is still largely making fun of Greendale and, through it, it’s own central conceit. “What happens when a whacky bunch of kids gets together at a rundown community college . . .?” Later on, Community will start to take on television and movies more broadly, but in the Read More
