Welcome to Earth, Newswire faithful. Or at least to the United States, where The A.V. Club is, and where we’re taking a long weekend to throw back a few cans of ice-cold America and blow some stuff up. And probably go swimming. We love swimming around here, in case you haven’t heard. In other words, it’s Fourth of July weekend, and Newswire will be off from now until Tuesday morning. The A.V. Club isn’t abandoning you entirely, however, and we’ve got some reviews, interviews, Staff Picks, an AVQ&A, and new installments in our regularly scheduled Expert Witness and A History Of Violence features to get you through the weekend.
In other words, we’re going to live on. We’re going to survive. Today, we celebrate our long Independence Day weekend, although probably not by seeing the Independence Day sequel. We hear it’s not that great. And don’t worry, the dog will be fine.
