Big nerd with passion for television, the 90s and ridiculous trivia.

Did you know that one of the first original television programs in America was "The Television Ghost," which featured dead people telling the stories of their murders.

How does it work?

    The Improbable NFL Blackout Game (Not the One You're Thinking Of)

    The Improbable NFL Blackout Game (Not the One You're Thinking Of)

    Every head coach remembers their first career win. Whether it's a blow out or a nail bitter; there's something special about getting that first W. However, no one's first win was as remarkable as Jason Garrett's. In order to understand the magnitude of that first game, we must first examine the circumstances that lead up to that game. On November 8, 2010, Wade Phillips was fired after the Cowboys started 1–7 and Jason Garrett was named interim head coach. 2010 was a rough year for Dallas, they had high hopes entering that season. The year before, Romo got his first playoff win, and after drafting rookie Dez Bryant, some people had the Cowboys on their Super Bowl radar. Sadly the expectations came crashing down when Tony Romo broke his collarbone against the New York Giants in Week 7.

    The Easter Eggs, Cameos, and Crossovers That Connect These 24 Nickelodeon Shows

    The Easter Eggs, Cameos, and Crossovers That Connect These 24 Nickelodeon Shows

    After spending a majority of the past 24 years watching Nickelodeon, I had a thought. Anyone who watched enough Nick noticed that characters cross over into other Nick shows. Whether it was a full blown crossover, like The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour, or just a quick cameo, Nick wasn't shy about sharing characters. So I was wondering, how many of these shows can be connected together? Since I'm an unproductive member of society, I decided to graph out how these shows connect with each other. This is what I came up with.

    How Has Family Guy Changed?

    How Has Family Guy Changed?

    It's hard to imagine there's someone out there who hasn't seen at least one episode of Family Guy. The show has been on for almost 19 years and shows no signs of slowing down. When the show premiered after Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999, no one thought it would reach such monumental status. Family Guy is also a rare example of a show being brought back after cancellation due to highly rated reruns and DVD sales. Since its revival, Family Guy has received fairly stable ratings. While the ratings may not have changed much, the show certainly has. Naturally when a show is on for so long it will go through progressions, but this is different. It's not just that Family Guy has changed a character, a story line, or even a theme; there is a fundamental difference between Family Guy from 1999 and Family Guy from 2017.

    How Would Humanity React to Superheroes?

    How Would Humanity React to Superheroes?

    We live in a world dominated by superheroes. Both Avengers movies are in the top 10 highest grossing films of all time. Everywhere you look you see an ad for another superhero product. 5 different superhero movies have already come out in 2017, with 2 more slated to premiere later on this year. This superhero overload had me thinking, what if they were real. I'm not saying, how great would it be to be a superhero, but how would humanity as a whole react to the idea of superheroes. In order to determine that, we must first break down the different types of superheroes. Humanity would react differently to different types of superheroes, so let's break them down into 4 categories.

    A Closer Look at The Road to El Dorado

    A Closer Look at The Road to El Dorado

    If you were to make a list of the greatest animated movies of all time, I highly doubt that The Road to El Dorado would be on your list. Many people group The Road to El Dorado with other DreamWorks failures and assume that since it was a box office bomb it was a bad movie. However, if you sit down and rewatch the film you'll see how well it has aged and how baffling it is that this movie wasn't a success. So let's take a look at what makes The Road to El Dorado awesome and why that went unnoticed.
