It's always great to see a professional actor chew scenery as if it's an audition for William Shakespeare himself. And who's a better choice to get super, over-the-top serious than Saturday Night Live guest host Adam Driver. In this sketch, Driver is a performer at New Jersey's Medieval Times restaurant, but he thinks he's William Wallace in Braveheart. He's also kind of racist? And a dick in general? But it's all right because he's taking an acting class. This sketch is great. Driver's...

Mashable's new series Don't @ Me takes unpopular opinions and backs them up with ... reasons. We all have our ways, but we may just convince you to change yours. And if not, chill.  Are you a performative pessimist, a Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Stan?  Do you loudly claim that War will soon end us all, despite both violence in general and battle deaths per year are in long-term decline since 1946? Like Thanos in Infinity War, do you believe in a coming global overpopulation-based famine...

Adam Driver is, like, super chill. Nevermind the fact that he's walked out of interviews and fielded an endless barrage of questions about what some have characterized as an intense demeanor. He's actually a chill dude. Or that's what he set out to prove in his Saturday Night Live monologue. He kinda did it? Driver always seems to have fun on SNL and his monologue got things off to a great start. All those things about him being intense do seem to be true, but on SNL at least he's able to...

The first time Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live, he busted out his Star Wars villain Kylo Ren for an Undercover Boss sketch. It was a hit. So of course, Driver's latest return to SNL gave us the gift of an Undercover Boss sequel. It's pretty similar to the last one, but with 100 percent more misplaced uses of "OK, boomer." (Kylo just doesn't get it, folks.) You will probably laugh.  And hey, just in case you're worried: No The Rise of Skywalker spoilers here. Read more... More about Star...

A new Saturday Night Live in 2020 can only mean one thing: A cold open sketch fixated on the exploits of Donald Trump. In lieu of Alec Baldwin's increasingly unfunny impression of the U.S. president, however, the latest cold open focused on the ongoing impeachment trial and Trump attorney Alan Dershowitz (Jon Lovitz). When an unfortunately timed heart attack sends Dershowitz to Hell (just for a visit), all sorts of modern day villains emerge from the woodwork. There's Jeffrey Epstein (Adam...

English is a weird language. None of our grammatical rules ever seem to be evenly applied without exceptions, and irregular verbs are no different. For most verbs in the English language, changing to past tense is as simple as adding 'ed' on the end. But then there's a whole host of words that don't conform to that rule. What gives? More »

Television commercials have always been weird. Sometimes they masquerade as entertainment, as in the case of Amazon's celeb-filled, Alexa-themed 2019 Super Bowl ad or, in other instances, serious art, like those eerie David Lynch-helmed PlayStation 2 ads. But the idea behind ads remains the same regardless of the era in which they were made: Companies want to sell you stuff. Apple is one of the best examples of this. The company behind the Mac, iPhone, and AirPods has been producing TV ads for...
