The most awesome part about being one of the primary storytellers of a popular television show is hearing how much its most loyal fans hate it.

Oh. Wait. It’s actually not awesome. It hurts like hell.

Sympathizing with villains as young children and then paving the way for their corresponding heartwarming redemption is all the rage these days. Star Wars committed an entire trilogy to young Anakin Skywalker — all for the purpose of helping us understand why he turned to the dark side. Even the Smoke Monster on Lost was a little boy, once. A boy who loved his mommy very much. Do you know what Voldemort thought of his mommy? Me neither. Because he killed her. Technically in childbirth, but who’s to say he wasn’t planning it for the nine months it took him to gestate?

Lots of bad guys are simply motivated by taking over the world. The really special ones have a penchant for ethnic cleansing along the way.

A wise man once said that a hero is only as good as the villain who opposes him. I am all but certain that wise man was captured, tortured to excruciating effect, then blasted into smithereens by one Tom Marvolo Riddle, otherwise known as Lord Voldemort, the most awesome bad guy of all time. For those of you who disagree, I pity you… the best way to incur the Dark Lord’s wrath (which usually involves his gigantic pet snake eating your head) is to fail to recognize his malevolent superiority.

I’m in the best shape of my life right now. Unfortunately, that shape is a rhombus.

Study reveals that watching an hour of TV reduces lifespan by 22 minutes. Or in my vernacular, every Wire costs you one Seinfeld.

Rule 63a. Always make the bad guy smarter, thereby putting the good guy in an unwinnable situation. No, I’m not talking about Pan Am.

In the spirit of being more politically active, have started saying, “I’m gonna go Occupy the Toilet” when I have to go boom boom.

And in the grand scheme of things, I’d still rather be well-produced trash than a turd on the doorstep.
