Last week’s Outlander was a tale of life and death. The defeated Scots were summarily executed after the Battle of Culloden. Jamie, however, escaped execution because he once spared the life of John Grey, the brother of the Brit whose job it was to kill Jamie and his fellow soldiers. […]

Manhunt: Unabomber Preview “Lincoln”

After last week’s “Ted,” I feel like we finally understand how Ted Kaczynski became so damaged.
