@midnight Power Rankings (June 22-25)

Here's something that happens a lot on @midnight. The worst show of the week was a "the cast of" episode, featuring the cast of TBS's hair comedy, "Clipped". Here's something that happens almost never on @midnight. The best show of the week was a "the cast of" episode. But the cast was cast members from thej awesome "Another Period", so it almost doesn't count.

Biggest surprise of the individual rankings, Will Sasso, killing it non-stop as part of Thursday's "Another Period" episode.

Individual Rankings:

1. Will Sasso (Th)
2. Kate Micucci (Th)
3. Cameron Esposito (W)

MEAT FOR THE SMOKE GOD

The way of the OLDNERD is thus: Jury-rigging, kludging, and convoluted ingenuity are strictly for prototyping and proof of concept. Once you've proven the concept, your time, money, and energy should go towards the building of infrastructure to make the whole thing as simple and as smooth as possible.

Which is an elaborate way of saying that yes, I bought a fancy electric smoker.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (June 15-19)

I'll be honest. Right now, it's very, very difficult to give a shit about any wrestling that doesn't involve either Kevin Owens or Lucha Underground. There wasn't even a New Japan on my DVR this week, so it just boils down to a single, hour-long match on LU, and a bunch of WWE bullshit.

@midnight Power Rankings (June 15-18

Not only was it a very good week for the show, it was also a very good week for watching the show, as I got all four episodes seen by Friday. As always, who knows what the editing does, but it seems like Margaret Cho brought less to the table than I'd have thought. Ron Funches and PFT were MVP's as usual, and having them on the same show? Priceless. Big props to Little Britain's Matt Lucas, who really killed it on Monday.

Individual Rankings:

1. Ron Funches (T)
2. Paul F. Tompkins (T)
3. Matt Lucas (M)
4. Dave Hill (M)
5. Hannah Hart (W)
6. April Richardson (T)
7. Matt Mira (W)

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Did Not Win Me Over

I don't fucking get it.

I got the first couple seasons of Game of Thrones. I wouldn't say I enjoyed them as such, but I got why they were popular. They were some of the best produced fantasy ever made. Solid acting, great sets, great costuming, and given the nature of the source material, it was fairly compelling narratively. For a while.

@Midnight Power Rankings (June 8-11)

I know I skippped the power rankings last week, because by the time I was able to watch Thursday's episode, I had a tough time figuring out where it fit in the final rankings and then it was too late. But I want to give a special shoutout to Janet Varney, who won last week's unpublished Power Rankings by a country fucking mile, killing it two Wednesdays ago.

This past week featured a lot of solid performers, but Chris Gethard's Challenger bit during the Space Porn speed round won the week for him and for the show he was on.

Individual Rankings:

1. Chris Gethard (Th)

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (June 8-12)

Another rough week for WWE content. The pre-Money-In-The-Bank slump continues, and I can only imagine what the five weeks between MitB and Battleground is going to be like. And in seven weeks, I won't even have Lucha Underground and may need to go back to watching Ring of Honor, the Sweet and Low of hour-long weekly low budget wrestling shows.

Monthly Free Games (June 2015)

Monthly Free Games

This month's games mostly fall into the "pretty good" category, with some older A-List titles mixed in with the array of new and recent indie downloadables. It's an especially good month if you like stealth or strategy-RPG's, so for me, that's... half-good?
