The FOX comedy ran for 259 episodes across thirteen seasons, and despite flagging towards the end of its run, remains my favourite animated show of all time. Keep your South Parks, Archers, and Simpsons’. Daddy’s a man of ...

So, after lying in the fetal position in the middle of the ticket lineup for a few minutes crying in utter disappointment, I collected myself.

Spectre is a Giant Sack of Ass

There is a spectre haunting Old Man MacPherson… Was anyone producing this movie? No, I’m seriously asking. No sane producer, for example, would approve the choice to fill the iconic Bond music-video intro with lovemaking and octopi. “That’s going to come off as tentacle-porn, and creep out the viewers,” a sane producer would have said. Yet, as writhing tentacles entwined with Daniel Craig’s naked body to Sam Smith’s “Writing on the Wall,” I found myself ...
