She Did Everything She Was Supposed To Do. The Least These Cops Could Do Is Show Some Sympathy.

Most of the time, the Internet is a magical place where you can react with .gifs and a cat named Maru is a local hero. However, some of the time, the Internet is also a sad place where angry fans go to bash the wives of popular antihero TV characters for getting in the way of their husbands doing terrible things. If you know anyone who refuses to see the plot from the perspective of these women and insists that they're naggy, ungrateful buzzkills no matter how horrible their husbands are, you might want to consider removing that person from your life. Or at least make them watch this.

She Did Everything She Was Supposed To Do. The Least These Cops Could Do Is Show Some Sympathy.

The sad thing is, while this is a parody, a lot of real women in abusive relationships receive similar reactions when they try to seek help. The way we talk about TV characters can reveal a lot about our society and subconscious belief systems. So next time you hear someone hating on a TV wife for being a complex and fully realized character who has personal motivations that might conflict with or stand in the way of her antihero husband achieving his goals, stand up for her. Because it does matter.

The sweet moment comes at the four-minute mark of the interview, where Colbert asked Garfield how playing Broadway composer Jonathan Larson (who died suddenly of a heart issue at the upswing of his creative career) helped him process the unexpected loss of his mother.

Instead of wishing the pain away, Garfield states, “I hope this grief stays with me.”

Jimmy Fallon #MyFamilyIsWeird.

It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is when we get the pleasure of spending way more time than we’re used to with our families. For those of us who’ve moved away from our immediate families, the holidays are a great time to reacquaint ourselves with old traditions and to realize that some of them may be a little strange.

Every family seems to have its own brand of weirdness. In fact, I wouldn’t trust anyone who says that their family is completely normal.

On November 18, “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon gave everyone a reason to celebrate their unique families by asking them to share their favorite stories under #MyFamilyIsWeird. The responses were everything from odd holiday traditions to family members that may have a screw (or two!) loose.

Here are 17 of the funniest responses.
