F went out with the guys tonight, so I settled in to do all the Shawn-time things I don’t usually get to do.

Of course I recognize, as a critically thinking person, that these films present a single point of view and that the “reality”–whatever that means–is sure to be more balanced. But it still makes me feel a little sick.
