Gotham City is dark. It has always been dark, and “Gotham,” Fox’s new drama that has basically been billed as Gotham City before Batman, is not about to lighten it up. The pilot opens with a sequence of what can only be a young Catwoman climbing about and eventually witnessing that most heinous of crimes, the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Soon the future commissioner James Gordon and his corrupt partner Harvey Bullock are on the case. As Bullock says, “This isn’t a job for nice people.”

If someone had come up to me before the NFL season and told me that the Packers’ offense would be holding them back, I would have said, “Sure, it also looks like hell is about to freeze over.”
When one listens to non-instrumental music, the point (sometimes) is to tell a story. While one could spend all day looking for a real story in Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” you already know that she’s in the fast lane between California and Japan. The song is remarkably catchy but one isn’t looking to Ms. Swaggy P for an investigation into post-racial discourse in the 21st century.
Barring a miracle playoff run, just seven games remain in the storied career of Derek Jeter.
Over the past few years, an unfortunate narrative for Badger football has emerged. Usually the team operates as a motley crew of bruisers, but if that group plays in a big game to the last minute, something will go terribly wrong.
Few things are harder in adolescence than peers perceiving you as “different.” Whether it was the choice in clothing, music taste or after school activities, if you didn’t fit into the normal parameters, which popular kids and jocks dictated, labels started flying from those groups to describe yourself.
College football season is in full swing, which means the upsets have started rolling in like a rising tide, but not a Crimson Tide (screw you Alabama). Last Saturday saw four ranked teams bite the dust. Georgia, USC, Virginia Tech and Louisville.
We’re now three full weeks into the 2014 college football season. That has given us enough time to peruse box scores, watch plenty of highlights and formulate some legitimate Heisman Trophy watch lists rather than preseason predictions that often turn out to be wildly incorrect. Check back in the following weeks for updated rankings.
Like the vast majority of generation, I am the proud owner of a Facebook account. As someone who has maintained my Facebook account over the past year, I have seen a fair amount of clips from John Oliver’s new HBO show, “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.” Oliver hosted “The Daily Show” while Jon Stewart was away directing his movie Rosewater (which, judging by the trailer, is going to be awesome). After Stewart returned to “The Daily Show,” HBO snapped up Oliver and his show, which premiered last April, has swiftly reached dizzying levels of popularity, especially with college-aged students.
The Big Ten is all but guaranteed to not have a team in the new College Football Playoff (cue the muffled sobbing sound from the Midwest). More surprisingly, the SEC might not have a representative in the Playoff either this January.
When I was in fifth grade, for my birthday, my parents got me a 20 GB iPod. Amid all of the gifts I have ever received, this stands as arguably the greatest and most influential gift.
Your local child abuser and woman beater just got arrested the other day.
"And the fever called living ... is conquered at last.” It will be extremely pompous and presumptuous of me to begin my first column of the semester with a randomly—albeit exceptionally brilliant—selected sentence from a poem that you may or (probably) may not be aware of. But then again, where’s the fun in not doing something like that?
Considering how poorly the Milwaukee Brewers have played over the past several weeks, you would think the team would be ready to pop open a bottle of champagne after any win at this point.
Welcome back to campus, Badgers! After an exciting summer for soccer, highlighted by Brazil’s World Cup, some of you might be suffering from footie withdrawal, and might be interested in following the world’s game more seriously this season. Well, fear not, because this coming semester Lars and I are here to guide you through the ups and downs of the Premier League (or “the Prem” for short), and we’ll start this week with a guide to a league which is only three games into its 38-game season.
Two days. It took two days for the most flimsy, half-hearted, most pathetically defensive cover-up in in recent sports history to dissolve.
So, another summer’s come and gone, and there are two films I really want to talk about: “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The LEGO Movie” (which wasn’t actually a summer film but whatever, it’s my column).
