We respect and value the social media editors who share the links that make our job easier. But sometimes, we have no idea what they are talking about. So after a long day spent staring at Twitter, we're sharing our favorites.


A good question, though the timing is slightly off. Which is curious, because Slate could've ask the exact same thing about American sitcoms and Valentine's Day episodes where someone forgets (!!) to buy a gift for their sweetheart.

Bruce Greenwood is a pro's pro. And let the record show, he was the only one in Thirteen Days with a serviceable Boston accent. When you do something like that, you're entitled to share a few stories about how Mickey Rourke is still so far out of the race he thinks he's winning. Not Greenwood: he's got a show to promote, he's going to promote it right. It's called The River, and while the buzz hasn't been great, we're not going to challenge Bruce Greenwood when he says it's an enjoyable piece of high-concept television.

Noble Blood.
