    SHIELD changed things up this week by having more than one interesting thing happen in an episode, but they stuck to their guns in terms of pulling a lot more from the Marvel Cinematic Universe than its comic book one. Still, I'll do my best to give you some interesting follow up reading material.

    Watch David Letterman Announce His Coming Retirement From The Late Show

    It started as a rumor yesterday, but it's true. David Letterman is retiring from The Late Show after more than thirty years. This clip from last night's show isn't particularly emotional. Letterman keeps it light. Still, there's never been a time in my life when Letterman wasn't on television. He was a big influence. He'll be missed.

    Why the Frak Don’t People Say “Fuck” on Cable? It’s All About the Money

    With the exception of premium channels like HBO, people don't say the word "fuck" on television. It's either bleeped out or replaced with another word. But why?

    Review: Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley Is the Geek Show TV’s Been Waiting For

    At SXSW this week, I got to see the first two episodes of the new Mike Judge HBO show Silicon Valley, which follows a group of developers as they stumble onto success with a unique algorithm.

I didn't know the answer, so I looked into it, and instead of just emailing Hodgman the answer, I figured I'd let the whole Internet know. So if you're wondering, here's why they're welded:

    SHIELD is back from a pretty long hiatus to remind us that it's still around, and to prove that Joss Whedon loves trains. If you watched the episode, read our comic book recommendations. If you didn't watch the episode, maybe wait. There's a pretty big spoiler.

    Late to the Party Recap: Firefly Series Finale “Objects in Space”

    There's a reason I've been recapping Firefly 11 years after it aired. Months ago I wrote a list of shows that I thought Netflix should not revive for another season, and Firefly was on it. Fans of Firefly went bananas, so I decided to watch the entire series. I'm on the last episode.

    Community Report, Season 5 Episode 2 “Introduction to Teaching”

    As promised in the previous episode "Repilot," Season 5 of Community is working as more of a reboot than a continuation. The biggest change so far is that Jeff Winger is back as a teacher.
