It’s the weekend, kids! Time to spill out on the streets of stars and ride away. Try to find out what you are, face to face. And once you’ve had enough? Carry on, but don’t forget to love…The Weekly Static!
But before we go any further, you should know why it is I’ve gathered all of you together this evening. There is a murderer on the loose, ladies and gentlemen…and that person is in this room with us at this very moment.
Isn’t that right…
With props to Kings of Leon and a song meant to be played before, during and after doing something incredibly f’n profound, here’s a personalized cheat sheet on what this is all about: The Weekly Static is my righteously desperate-yet-endearing attempt at finding the lighter side and an interesting perspective on the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, cloud formations, and shadow puppets.

The ‘Happy!’ AR app has been built by Syfy’s digital arm, and was released for iPhone and Android Wednesday. It features the voice of Patton Oswalt, who also voices Happy in the show…”
