Your alcoholism can be an angel or a devil on your shoulder depending on how your body processes tequila. This blog won’t endorse a drinking problem, but it will endorse a good story. So pour a shot and see who’s left in our libations division.
Welcome back to March Madness! I hope voting fatigue hasn’t set in, because we have four rounds of voting. By day’s end, we’ll have gone from 64 programs to 32!

…Oh, was that the wrong sports reference? Welcome back to Screen Scholars March Madness! Some of us don’t give a wit for balls, but all of us love television. We’d be remiss if we tossed aside the one feature that brings clicks to our site–and … Continue reading March Madness 2019 Kickoff!
Marcia Clark, D.L. Hughley, Black Lighting, and ruling Vanderpumps — just a casual Monday at Screen Scholars.

X marks the spot of this Monday, as we’ve got the maybe final finale of The X-Files, textastraphe aftershocks on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and the continuing tales of Saul Goodman, a man whose universe has been dotted by multiple buried treasures.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend [CW, 8p]
Maybe all is not lost when Rebecca finds a way to spend time with Josh following the great texting (and fondue) debacle of 2016.
The X-Files [FOX, 8p]
Ok this is it Scully, are you going to go find your baby or what??
Better Call Saul [AMC, 10p]

- Syfy’s The Magicians has been steadily improving, and it’s hard not to be intrigued by tests called “The Trials.”
- CBS’ generally decent Supergirl promises battles between good and evil and administrative assistants, so there’s that…
- If your tastes match Idiotsitter‘s Gene and her birth mother Michael Hitchcock, then Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules is the show for you.
