Welcome to Select Your Pop, The A.V. Membership’s new bite-size sequence that includes our editors’ favourite popular culture! Every week, the editors from 4 of our sections—movie, TV, music, and books—will get collectively and make a pitch for his or her respective decisions, based mostly round a specific theme. The catch: They’ve solely bought 20 seconds to promote one another on the energy of their suggestions. In honor of the return of House Of Cards, this debut installment options the theme of “political corruption.” Try our workers recommendations, and watch movie editor A.A. Dowd study a tough lesson about ticking clocks.
