Sal has left Facebook and wants you to break your addiction too. Call the Facebook addiction hotline (and we can guide you through the withdrawals of breaking away from the cult of Facebook.

We jump into an article in Variety.com about how sexual harassment claims might change comedy writers rooms, would it have been better if Louis CK just came out and asked for volunteers, what is the price of genius and a tease for my next project The Rorschach Test.

-- SPOILER ALERT--

Our Hero tries to be objective in his dislike of Thor Ragnarok. In his age of progressive action heroes did Marvel go too far in trying to make the God of Thunder relatable? Does a storyteller have a responsibility to offer a solution if they present a specific question to their audience? Are we seeing the end of the square-jawed, strong-silent action hero? And why is Cate Blanchett so much hotter in as a goth?
