The Bachelorette: Men Tell All Recap & Final Rose Preview


Well, my experiment failed. I thought maybe if I stopped writing about this season that it would just go away. I got tired of Andi and her boy(z II men). I was tired of watching these men swaddled in scarves perusing some of this world’s greatest cities. But, I Read more

24: Live Another Day Finale


With the conclusion of another season of 24 (perhaps the last we'll ever see of Jack Bauer?), we bring in some longtime fans to discuss the finale, where the series may go from here, and how well this season lived up to the 24 we have come to know Read more

The Importance of Henderson, Tennessee (and all Hometowns)


   "Everybody has to have a hometown, Binghamton's mine. In the strangely brittle, terribly sensitive make-up of a human being, there is a need for a place to hang a hat or a kind of geographical womb to crawl back into, or maybe just a place that's familiar because that's Read more

Perspective on the New Ninja Turtles from an Emo Millennial


Today we are pumped to have a new guest contributor in Jonathan Schneck. Jonathan is the Director of New Media Innovations for the ACLJ/BeHeardProject.  He is the non-touring, semi retired, guitarist for the Grammy Nominated band Relient K. He has a Marketing Degree from Liberty University and lives in Read more

Summer under the Stars: What our love for "The Fault in Our Stars" says about us


When it comes to of-the-moment teen book series, I’m certainly a connoisseur. I eased through the Harry Potter stories, devoured the Hunger Games trilogy and – yes, sad to say – even gave the Twilight saga a spin back in the day. None of these endeavors I really regret, either. Read more

Why we dislike Shia LaBeouf


Shia LaBeouf is at it again. Seen the latest headline? The actor was ejected from a Broadway performance of “Cabaret” and promptly arrested for disorderly conduct. His crimes were worse than peering down his phone at Snapchat during the show, too. Apparently, the actor was caught smoking, yelling out Read more

Roundtable: What’s the Best Superhero Movie… not called The Dark Knight?

manofsteel 300x201 Roundtable: Whats the Best Superhero Movie... not called The Dark Knight?

With Man of Steel bringing Superman back to the silver screen when it premieres this weekend, we thought The Wise Guise and friends should each answer the question: “What is the best/your favorite superhero movie?” Because several of the guise feared every answer would be The Dark Knight, we decided to not make people choose between Heath Ledger and anyone else (DARN YOU, OLSEN TWINS!). So we made the weekly topic best superhero movie… not called The Dark Knight. We asked people to be creative. The result: THREE Keanu Reeves movies were mentioned. Check out what The Wise Guise and friends discussed, including traditional superhero movies and… others. Enjoy!

Roundtable: Which TV Show Would You Bring Back?

ad netflix 610x447 Roundtable: Which TV Show Would You Bring Back?

There was a time in our site’s history where we would have e-mail threads with our friends about various topics, and then Clayton or I would format those into a lengthy blog post. Eventually, they became too inconsistent and too time-consuming to put together, so they faded away. Recently, Wise Guise contributor Sutter Vaught reached out to me with the idea of doing a weekly series where we posed one direct question to a panel of writers/contributors/friends to answer. With a more consistent format, this new Weekly Roundtable series was born. Each week, we’ll be posing a question to a panel (which will have consistent characters and some occasional guests) to give their thoughts.

For the first one, the topic was an easy one. With Arrested Development’s return to Netflix for a fourth season, 24′s return for a special season next May, and Veronica Mars returning with a KickStarter-funded movie, everyone is thinking about what other TV shows they wish could come back from the abyss of cancellation. Our panel answers the simple question: Which TV show would YOU bring back for more episodes?

The Bachelorette 2013: Week Two Recap

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television, TV Reviews, Weekly Posts | Leave a comment

Welcome back to another week of The Bachelorette.  Are you crying from boredom now? Did you read Infinite Jest this morning to replenish your neurons? Great. Then we’re not on the same page.  Last night, the star of the show was Des’ baby blue Bentley, with the close runner up being one of the bachelors who doesn’t seem to have a neck. But, seeing as the Bentley technically belongs to Chris Harrison & ABC, we’ll go ahead and review the rest of the night’s crazy events, which mostly involved a lot of roided-up arguments, v-necks, and hooded sweatshirts designed to fit men with shoulders the size of mediocre songwriters’ egos.  And, as always, we’ll save you the hassle and condense this into five danger-free highlights!

First, a rap video full of white people

youngfeeny 300x300 SPECIAL FEENY DAY: THE LEGEND RETURNS!

News about Girl Meets World is coming in at such record pace that we can’t until Good Friday for the latest update. Not only is this because there’s so much quantity of news and pictures coming in from the set, but because of the utmost QUALITY OF THE NEWS WE HAVE TO SHARE WITH YOU TODAY!

Ever since the first Feeny Fridays where we recapped Feeny’s wisdom from the first season, our main focus in rewinding to our childhood (and our young adulthood watching reruns, if we’re honest) has been to glean life wisdom from George Feeny.

shawneric Feeny Friday: Uncle Shawn & Uncle Eric Joining Girl Meets World?

Since the new era of Feeny Friday has begun with our in-depth look at the production of Girl Meets World and campaign to bring back Feeny to give us more wisdom, we here at The Wise Guise have been staying up to date. And there are a number of things we’ve learned. As Adele might say, rumor has it that production has begun on the pilot episode of Girl Meets World. And, although the radar remains relatively silent on Feeny’s return, we have learned a lot. And there’s greater hope for Uncle Eric & Uncle Shawn to show up than ever before!

Without further ado, I present…

THE BACHELOR FINALE RECAP AHHHHH

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television, Weekly Posts | Leave a comment

Like most of America, I fast forwarded through much of The Bachelor finale, only to be disappointed with the fact that Sean picked Catherine, someone I barely even knew was on the show.

Poor Lindsay: She walked through a bunch of woods and rocks only to get dumped on national television despite the fact that she was sure she was about to get engaged.  I’ve been dumped in a lot of different ways, but that, folks, is simply awful.

But, because she apparently is a ROCK STAR, she barely cried, she walked away, and she didn’t say anything stupid or too pathetic until she was in the car.  That almost never happens.

 Then Sean picked Catherine and we all yawned.

The Bachelor Recap: All The Things We’ve Learned

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television, Weekly Posts | 1 Comment

This week’s episode of The Bachelor was spectacularly awful.  To be honest, I could barely stand to watch the majority of it, as nobody says or does anything interesting, and I don’t find Sean to be ridiculously attractive (as it seems the rest of the country does).  Furthermore, the gratuitous shots of him in tank tops staring into the sun are starting to get a bit redundant.

Highlights of this episode? THE PREVIEWS.  Things we can learn from this episode?
