weekly

Jealousy turning saints into the sea; swimming through sick lullabies; choking on your alibis. But it’s just the price I pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes, cause I’m…  The Weekly Static! With righteous amounts of love and respect to The Killers; now as I back out of the room slowly and awkwardly – Peter Griffin-style – check out this week’s…

This week, The Weekly Static – Bleeding Cool‘s look at the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, cloud formations, and shadow puppets – offers up its top picks from the new series coming from NBC, CBS, Fox and the CW in an interesting and entertaining perspective. So our “The Fatal Five” (myself, Rocky, Trejo, Bat-Murr, and Margo Staten) promises to do this (but we won’t do that… no, we won’t do that…):

● 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, Eisner Awards, at least one write-in vote for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election… and for this to the the last time Roseanne craps her way across our screens.
