Don’t miss


What are we arguing about this week?
Fringe’s two-part finale has sent many of our readers into a depressed tailspin. Believe us, we’re not happy about it either, especially Noel Murray, who’s been reviewing it from the beginning. If you need a place to cry and commiserate, this comment section is the place.

This weekend
See: Avoid Movie 43 at all costs this weekend, unless the thought of Hugh Jackman with testicles on his chin really does sound like the height of comedy. Parker is also skippable, but John Dies At The End and Happy People: A Year In The Taiga are both worth a view.
Read: Steven Gould’s Jumper series finally continues with Impulse. We hope this one never becomes a Hayden Christensen movie. If that doesn’t sound appealing, Big Issues finds a great time in Young Avengers #1.
Listen to: The Joy Formidable earned our highest grade this week, with a sophomore album that improves on an impressive debut. New records from Bad Religion and A$AP Rocky were also solid, with Bad Religion reorienting themselves and A$AP Rocky delivering an “aesthetic marvel.”
Laugh at: “Bits on killing sharks and second-place chess trophies turn into sophisticated pussy jokes so gradually it’s barely perceptible.” That sentence is the best way we have to sell you Chris Hardwick’s Mandroid. It is good.
Watch: With Fox pulling Ben And Kate from the schedule and ABC canceling Don’t Trust The B—— In Apartment 23, now would be a good time to catch up with them. At least you know it’s only a finite number of episodes. We also hear some pretty big things happened on 30 Rock and The Office, if that sounds like important news.
