Conventional Localization

Today on the 5: Over the weekend I watched the Netflix Castlevania series, which managed to really surprise me.

'Pure' Baseball  

Today on the 5: I often hear commentators remark on how technology would ruin the 'purity' of baseball. The idea of purity in modern baseball is laughable to begin with.

The Good In Penance  

Today on the 5: A while back I discovered an awful Marvel character called Penance. As it turns out, his back story is pretty good.

Pointless Deception  

Today on the 5: Tyler Kokjohn alerted me to a Verge article about a UK ruling on health data security violations. Why do these companies bother hiding these things anymore?

Today on the 5: Silicon Valley has wrapped up season 4. While it's been very uneven, it may finally be the start of a change in the status quo.

The Inhumans Problem  

Today on the 5: The trailer for the ABC series Inhumans is out, and reaction is less than great. I still don't know how this series makes any sense.

Late Night Talk Shows
