Every Atheist Needs: Mr. Robot

Mr. Robot religion rant

Warning: Mild Spoilers If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like if Donnie Darko had joined Fight Club, now’s your chance to find out. The relatively new show, Mr. Robot, is like the story of Donnie Darko’s redheaded stepchild running a Fight Club chapter out of the basement. It’s a little bit sci-fi, a little bit nerdy and

Every Atheist Needs: Penn & Teller: Bullshit!

Penn & Teller Bullshit!

The first time I watched Penn & Teller: Bullshit! I was single with no kids and binge-watched the whole thing with my bestie over the course of a weekend. We’d never seen anything like it before, and we kept watching it together over and over in the years that followed. Penn Jillette and Teller put together,

Every Atheist Needs: The Path

The Path

I was a huge fan of Breaking Bad. It’s among my all-time favourite television shows, and while Bryan Cranston was beyond spectacular, my favourite actor on the cast for Breaking Bad was always Aaron Paul. I think that’s because he surprised me. When they first introduced us to Jesse Pinkman, I assumed he was going to

Every Atheist Parent Needs: Martha Speaks

Martha Speaks

One afternoon when I was cooking dinner and my little guy was surfing through Netflix Kids, I began to overhear words like “logic”, “evidence” and “proof” come from the show he was watching. Naturally, it piqued my curiosity but I was cooking something that needed my attention. So, I made a mental note to check […]

Every Atheist Needs: Angels In America

Angels In America

This is, quite literally, the single most brilliant show I’ve ever seen. It’s more than outstanding, it goes beyond what anyone could describe as great. It transcends what you ever thought television was capable of. The acting, the subject matter, the sets and effects, it simply rises above the medium and shakes you to your core.
