@midnight Power Rankings (May 11-14)

I know this is hella late, but I had a lot more to finish on this one before I got sick. Plus, it was a fairly shitty week. None of the episodes really shone until Thursday, the only one worth catching if it's still on your DVR. Plus, no new @midnights until the Tuesday after Memorial Day, but it's looking to be a promising week, with Marc Maron and Doug Benson coming back on different shows. Anyway, here's how the rankings shook out:

1. Mamrie Hart (Th)
2. Flula Borg (Th)
3. Rove McManus (Th)
4. Al Jackson (T)
5. Paul Feig (W)
6. Annie Lederman (T)
7. Jim Jefferies (T)

Oh, The Metahumanity! (May 11-14)

Two season finales down, one to go. Wasn't enough time to get both a Powers and a Daredevil in, thanks to my stupid cold. Luckily, I pre-write most of these as I watch them so all it takes to get them up on the site is a quick intro and proofread.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (May 11-14)

The WWE needs to learn that the solution to any perceived problem it has is not "more wrestling". There was another six hours of WWE wrestling on TV this week, and that's not counting the two hours I don't watch. So why are we getting a rush-job WWE Network exclusive Elimination Chamber in three weeks? It's not helping. Which is why we're totally starting this week's WWW with

LUCHA UNDERGROUND

Mad Max: Fury Road

It's been about two and a half hours since I watched Mad Max: Fury Road, and I'm still feeling a bit... pummeled.

This movie sets a new bar for an assault on the senses. It starts loud. It starts fast. And for the next two hours, it continues, almost unrelentingly, to be fast and to be loud. It relents so rarely to catch its breath that you never really relax, because essentially, once the opening chase sequence is complete, the movie is one long chase.

Plants In The Ground For A Sufficiently Loose Definition Of Ground

This weekend was also Get The Motherfucking Garden Going weekend.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (May 4-10)

One thing that's important to remember when considering the WWW is that my decisions are somewhat arbitrary and capricious, and the criteria can vary from week to week. Which is why this week I'm starting off with

WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW

@midnight Power Rankings (May 4-7)

Oh, what a week that was.

Seriously, the worst @midnight from last week, Tuesday's Besser/Gabrus/Cordero, would have been a strong competitor for second best last week. Monday's is a must-see for any @midnight fan, and Wednesday's was so good you could use it as a primer to introduce people to the show. Heather Ann Campbell's Drunk Orson Welles Oscar Meyer commercial was the best thing of the entire week, but Dan Harmon edged her out overall, especially considering he completely sidetracked the opening bit with hilarious results. The power rankings!

1. Dan Harmon (W)

Oh The Metahumanity! (May 4-7)

We are rapidly coming up on a shitload of season finales - a few more weeks and I'll have to shelve Oh The Metahumanity until AKA Jessica Jones premieres on Netflix. Or I hit my head on a sharp rock and decide to get caught up on Gotham Season 1. Anyway, lets get 'em while they're hot.

Ziggurat (PS4, Xbox One)

Ziggurat, available for Playstation 4 and XBox One, is Hexen, done up as a roguelike.

Oh, wait, you want more? "Hexen Roguelike" wasn't enough? Well, you, dear reader, are clearly not me. First, let me save you the trouble of Googling in case you're not up on the terminology.

Hexen was a 1990's first-person shooter from id, the people who made Doom. It was Doom with a fantasy makeover. Wants instead of guns, that kind of thing.
