The Weekly Swarm: 1/5 – 1/11

Ruby Hornet's The Weekly Swarm

With the first full week of 2015 in the books, it’s safe to say our team has a pretty good idea of the site’s direction going forward. We’re still holding tight on pulling the trigger on all of the changes, but slowly but surely, you’ll see some of our new ideas surface over the weeks to come.

This past week was a very TV-heavy week, given the beginning of the new year. Travis revisited Six Feet Under and how it had an impact on him, Bridjet shared her top/bottom 10 TV shows to watch/avoid in 2015, and Travis also argued why Shameless is the most overlooked show on cable right now. Outside of TV, Hubert does what he does best, editorializing on everything under the sun, with this week’s entries on the Charlie Hebdo situation out in France and the trials and tribulations of adapting real life for films.

Check out all of this and more below.
