Halloween Stream: In CBS’s ‘Evil,’ a Shroom-Loving Hot Priest Faces His Demons
CBSAs soon as the impossibly jacked priest brewed himself some tea with magic mushrooms, I knew Evil had my number. The Good Wife/Fight creators Michelle and Robert King’s Catholicism-infused X-Files riff is an escapist masterpiece that proves once more that conventional broadcast forms can still surprise and delight if you treat them (and your characters) with respect. Oh—and did I mention that the show also features a literal (and very gregarious) demon named George? Evil is not for everyone—and you’ll likely know by the end of the first episode which camp you fall into. It’s worth finding out. Each month I sift through the new offerings coming to streaming and choose one I believe is worth highlighting—and this month, it’s this delightfully depraved CBS drama, which lands on Netflix Octobe 1. (The show is also available on CBS All Access.) What better way to honor Spooky Season in the middle of our most dystopic year yet than diving into a show that understands both its thematic weight and its own inherent goofiness? Evil (styled EVIL both in its opening credits and my heart) joins the Kings’ other creations as a rare breed of broadcast dramas—those that respect their viewers without taking themselves too seriously.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Lewis Black: Trump-Biden Debate Made Me Glad I Don’t Have Children
Michael Schwartz/Getty“Not enough alcohol in the world right now,” Lewis Black tweeted Tuesday night during the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.Like the rest of the country, the comedian was horrified by what he was watching. He just happens to be better than most Americans at putting that horror into words.“What happened last night was unconscionable on so many levels,” Black tells me during our taping for this coming week’s episode of The Last Laugh podcast. “Every so often in my life, I’ve regretted not having children,” he adds. “But basically I feel like I made that choice and I live with that choice and it isn’t something that undermines me. But nights like that, watching that debate and if I was sitting with children and having to explain what they were seeing, I would lose my mind.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

How Trump Could Bypass a Key Vaccine Safety Valve
GettyIf the Trump administration tries to push out a novel coronavirus vaccine before it’s fully tested, there are three committees of independent experts who could stand in its way. It’s a testament to the massive stakes of this kind of work that some of their names are effectively kept secret.These committees—two in government and one in the private sector—keep tabs on vaccine-testing, sign off on new drugs and vaccines, and advise the government on how to deploy a new inoculation. But it remains to be seen just how much clout they have if the government decides to skirt science and rush out an Election Year miracle.Welcome to Rabbit Hole, where we dive deep on the biggest story.

Poll Workers: Trump’s Goons Won’t Stop Us Doing Our Election Day Jobs

One of her friends mentioned it later in a debate night group chat.Glaza, a former writer for a food magazine who was furloughed during the pandemic, felt “scared” when she read the text.
