It’s a densely packed little Wednesday, as the darkest Muppet timeline returns, critically heralded The Expanse hits the end of its season (and contracts?), we begin to relive the Crime of the 20th Century: 90s Edition with all its speeding vans and Kato Kaelins, and we all anxiously await the shadow judgments of Punxsutawney Phil, Staten Island Chuck, and all the other revered rodents across this great land.
