As disparate this season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been, and despite my being the only person in the fandom to feel disappointed by last week's episode, I'm overall digging what I see. Even though I couldn't tell you what this season is...

Negative Glass reviews made M. Night Shyamalan cry

Ah, remember Glass? I wasn't too big a fan of it, as you can tell from my review of the film for this very website. Apparently, I contributed to writer-director M. Night Shyamalan getting quite upset, because the filmmaker recently adm...
