[The Weekly Swarm] 5/11 – 5/17

Ruby Hornet's The Weekly Swarm

Last week was full of TV-related surprises, wasn’t it? First, we found out that American Idol was getting canceled (and it’s about time no less), then we found out that Simpsons vet Harry Shearer was leaving the show over a contract dispute. Speaking about contracts, we’ll be getting more Rosario Dawson when Marvel’s Daredevil (and the rest of the Marvel/Netflix series) returns. What about Riot Fest being named the best music festival in the country by USA Today and 10Best? That was pretty cool, but not as cool as our list of 10 badass superheroines and supervillains!

…I can go on and on, but rather than ramble, how about I let you take a look at all of last week’s content in our latest edition of The Weekly Swarm?
