Here at Power Rankings! Central, we are on a ridiculous roll that not even impending vacations can slow down: It's Week 3. Crazy times! If you were here, you'd hear the dulcet tones of Band of Horses and that "Talking television at the casual party" lyric that just feels so descriptively real.

Anyway, the first two Power Rankings! covered the essential dramas and essential comedies that you had to start working on before watching anything else. Notice how I never said you had to finish all those series. Television is a luxury in these times of madness and monsters —...

Pain… Pain… Pain… That’s one of the main emotions I experienced while watching this week’s (rather excellent) Doctor Who, as I knew this weekly round-up of references, similarities and generally interesting ‘stuff’ was going to be a whopper.

‘Danny Says’ Review: The Man Who Discovered The Ramones Becomes The Subject Of A Documentary That Doesn’t Know What It’s Looking For

Daniel Fields was just a middle-class kid from Queens, but — during the second half of the 20th century — he discovered the Ramones, burned down the Beatles and seemingly had sex with every gay man at Harvard in the early 1960s.
