As summer wraps, we thought it’d be fun to shine a light on the games that have excited us, moved us, and kept us going throughout a relentless and challenging year. Maybe you’d like to check them out, too.”

And after a seemingly endless, highly public talent search, the New York Times is reporting they’ve picked two people: actress Mayim Bialik and the show’s own executive producer, Mike Richards. The choice of Richards is already inspiring a backlash for multiple reasons.”
