Ask me no questions, I will tell you no lies — but I’m not asking for a miracle. We’re looking for angels in the darkest of skies — but I’m not asking for… The Weekly Static!

Done with much love to Chvrches (you can check out the song ‘Miracle’ here) and… Whoa! Lady, I will gladly get you off this train. I will throw you off this train — if necessary — but kindly refrain from any physical act that is not of an erotic nature.

The Weekly Static is our look at the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, cloud formations, and shadow puppets from an interesting and entertaining perspective. So The Weekly Static’s “League of Not-So-Evil Exes” (myself, Rocky, Trejo, Bat-Murr and Margo Staten) makes you these three promises… because we can:

● Offer blunt, honest perspectives on five TV topics from the past week covered by Bleeding Cool’s team of news-thirsty writers. Just to be clear? My views are my views and don’t reflect on the writers. We own what we say 110%.

● Spotlight a news item that we missed when it first hit, but we’re pretty sure you’ll want to know about.

● Feed my insatiable-yet-fragile ego with buckets of praise, adulation, social media shares, pizza, Superman Funkos, Eisner Awards, write-in votes for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election (… tick… tick… tick…) and one guaranteed good night of sleep per week.

So… Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35?
