David Tennat says things will be okay--guys stop it

David Tennant played one iconic role on television--okay, two--okay maybe three or four depending on how you see Broadchurch. My point is that adults don't need David Tennant to "doctor" them with placid messages about how things aren't so bad. 

If folks are worried, they need to do stuff and the best thing actors can do with their platform is to encourage people to take action and stand by their principles even if it's inconvenient.

Top Hits for 2016

Every year I make a playlist of top songs from the previous year and...whoo boy I am rethinking that policy.

I'm three Beibers, two Drakes, and a Zayn regretful about these. These are our units of regret now. 

Also, Zayn and Taylor Swift collaborated on a song for the new 50 Shades of Grey movie, but I couldn't find a video after searching so due to powers beyond my control it couldn't be part of this list.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

17 to 01: The One With the Whales

Derek. Hates. Fun.

That's all I have to say.

Except for the part where Derek said "Andy Rooney" when he meant "Benny Hill."

It only occurs to me now that Kirk likely violated a temporal prime directive in saving themselves from the probe. Like, would The Federation allow anyone else to travel in time to save their planet like Kirk saved Earth? The intervention of an alien species might be a mitigating factor, as well as the fact that the abduction of George and Gracie might have been part of a stable time loop, but the extinction of the whales was a mistake Earth made and a extinction as a result of a civilization's shortsightedness is kind of exactly what The Prime Directive is for. Saving Earth probably should have been an additional criminal charge for him.

Also, next week is the Season 4 supplemental and the end of 17 to 01, so there's no movie trailer for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.

17 to 01 is available on iTunes. It updates Thursday mornings at 2:00 AM ET / 1:00 CT. We're also amazingly on Stitcher.
