Bruce Jen­ner: This for­mer Olympian and pa­tri­arch of a re­al­ity show has been the sub­ject of more spec­u­la­tion than most pres­i­den­tial cam­paigns. Trans­gen­der is­sues have been an over­due topic in con­ver­sa­tion, but ev­ery­thing wrong about the cir­cus sur­round­ing this story can be summed up know­ing a net­work news an­chor has a much-hyped in­ter­view with Jen­ner com­ing up and weeks ago fake jour­nal­ist John Oliver in­ter­viewed Ed­ward Snow­den. What’s wrong with this pic­ture?

Crackle: A rel­a­tive new­comer in the stream­ing video wars with more than 80 films — some of them even came out in the last five years — this en­deavor from Sony is fol­low­ing Net­flix into orig­i­nal pro­gram­ming with a sports trivia show, a se­ries with Den­nis Quaid that may or may not fea­ture him throw­ing a tantrum (look it up) and a se­quel to “Joe Dirt,” a 2001 David Spade com­edy no one saw the first time. The good news is it’s free; the bad is you get what you pay for.
