Hi, my name is Annie and my deep dark secret is that I love Dave Matthews Band. Ok, it's not even a secret. I'll tell anyone, DMB RULES. FIRE DANCERS FOR LYFE. 

But I'm also fully aware that culturally, DMB has come to signify a certain *type*—white dudes whose formativ...

Sarah Linden wears sweaters. Boy, does she wear sweaters! The fact that Sarah Linden wears so many sweaters is good TV because Sarah Linden lives in Seattle and is a detective on the go. Detectives in Seattle wear leggings and tennis shoes and raincoats and SWEATERS be...

Ok, so we may have overestimated ourselves, or perhaps to put it more nicely we underestimated the demands on our time. Either way, Crossover Hit has been silent, and for that we sincerely apologize.

The Dundies! How can I explain....

No, but seriously.

"The Dundies" is the first episode of Season Two of The Office (US). It premiered on September 20, 2005. It was written by Mindy Kaling and directed by Greg Daniels. And it is brilliant.

For Saturday Night Live Season 43, we decided to raise the stakes a little bit in our weekly watch-and-text-each-other routine. So, we created a fantasy SNL scoring system, based on sketch appearances, types of characters, flubs and breaks, etc. The gamification of lif...
