Morning Coffee (10/26/15)

Me elsewhere! TV news and a Last Kingdom recap.

Hillary Clinton's 11-hour Benghazi testimony was her best campaign ad yet

Why the Jem flop is important: "The lesson they will take from this is that girl-centric properties are not worth the resources of boy-centric properties."

The U.K. is getting its own Sound of Music Live! TV thing, and I am actually interested in this one because they have JULIAN OVENDEN (Andrew Foyle) playing Captain Von Trapp. Please please please make it available here somehow, ITV?

I've always been suspicious of Airbnb anyway, but these ads are the worst, and their spokesman sounds RIDICULOUSLY unprofessional.

Shocking research finding of the day: "Though the thought of a smart woman is appealing to men, a real, live smart woman standing in front of them is actually a turnoff."

Feminists should cheer Paul Ryan for taking a stand for work-life balance

'You're the Worst' just aired the best depiction of clinical depression. Ever.

The fan reaction to the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child news has been fascinating, and Melissa Anelli (of course) has some good things to say here.

Headline guaranteed to make me click: Queen intervenes to settle title feud opening way to title pretenders (But really, the question of the role of modern science in traditional inheritance rules is fascinating!)

I am very exciting about National Geographic's Mayflower movie, though also concerned that it will be terrible! (These things are not mutually exclusive.)
