6 Reasons I’m Grateful For Manhunt: Unabomber

I’ve watched A LOT of news since the election (and before), so I’m honestly grateful for any show that manages to distract me from the way the current administration is f*cking everything up. You would think maybe I’d write about a comedy — there are SO many great ones — […]
