I remember hearing Teri Schiavo’s name on TV a lot when I was younger. At the time I guess the case wasn’t at the top of my list of things to get to know so I never quite understood the full reasoning behind why her case was such an important one for the US. Thank goodness the New York Times has these Retro Reports to fill me in so many years later.

I just finished watching the entire premiere season of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty. It’s a hilarious show that I can sort of describe as a really twisted Back To The Future (in fact, the show is very loosely based on the relationship between Marty McFly and Doc Brown).

It’s really vulgar at times and generally does a good job of turning the weirdness knob up to 11. The best part? Most of the episodes are free to watch on Adult Swim’s website. And with only 11 episodes, each pretty short, why not binge watch tonight?
