The Criminal Trial of the Antihero
Tony Soprano, Walter White, The Punisher, The Joker, Venom, Stone Cold Steve Austin. Are you noticing a pattern here? No, it's not aggrieved white men, although fair point.

The Civil Trial of Artistic License
All media is derivative. The same basic stories get told and retold time and time again. So it stands to reason that some artistic license is warranted to freshen up old tales.

For the Record: Smash Mouth's Astro Lounge
Another new episode type for us! This time instead of picking up individual songs from a variety of bands that fit a single theme, we're examining an album as a whole, track by track. First up, we're taking it back to 1999 with Smash Mouth's wildly successful album, Astro Lounge. Is this album just All Star and a bunch of filler or are there some genuine hidden gems here? Find out this week on, The Popular Court!

The Judicial Review of Kevin Smith
His movies were the soundtrack to our teenage years. The flowery, often foul language, the absurd debates over pop culture minutiae, the harsh examinations of our own growth as people.

The Civil Trial of Netflix Revivals
Remember that show from 20 years ago? You know the one. It was really good for a while and then it ended, but maybe not how you wanted, or maybe it did but regardless. It's back! And everybody's a little older, and the storylines make a little less sense because cell phones are a thing now and that solves 99% of sitcom plots. And the guy who died? He's back now. Why? I don't fuckin know just watch. Netflix revivals, this week on, The Popular Court.
