Hello and welcome to this edition of Things That Happened The Week Of AKA the week where we lost Gene f#cking Wilder.
We start out on a bummer note because not only did we lose the great Gene Wilder but we also lost one of the best character actors you didn’t know about in Jon Polito. The guy has shown up in Seinfeld and many Cohen Brothers films. But like many weeks in 2016, we must persevere and talk about the positives, like our latest Lingering Stare featuring the indy title, The Final Station. We also launched our newest segment; Jerkbag Edition, where I play through an adventure game making the jerkiest meanest decisions allowed and our first official Jerkbag game is Telltale’s Game of Thrones, I urge you to check it out.
There’s plenty of fun stuff to check out this week in the form of HBO’s Westworld and The Young Pope trailers. Both look like they are ready to take over the fall months. We have more Mary Jane drama, Stranger Things gets a second season (of course) and Jason Voorhees murders a bunch of teenagers in a video game. All that and much more after the jump!
