The Prisoner And Kosho, The Mostly Fictional Martial Art

In Sarah’s beloved 50 year old spy television show The Prisoner it features a mostly-made up martial art known as Kosho.

“Mostly” because there are a few real-world examples of people trying to bring to life this single-boxing-glove-wearing, grapple-on-trampolines conceptual martial art.

Sarah actually managed to track down someone who has tried to compete in “real” kosho and asked him what it was like in her first piece for Jet Li’s very good website.

The Ultimate Fighter

The 25th edition of TUF, The Ultimate Fighter, concluded in July and with it came the realization that this reality television program about mixed martial arts is getting a little stale.

Why Julia, Sesame Street’s New Autistic Muppet, Is Valuable

Sesame Street has just introduced a new autistic Muppet character named Julia.

There are a number of reasons why this new character is valuable. For one, it will better enlighten non-autistics on how to share the world with autistic persons. Likely more important, though, it will give autistic persons a valuable reference tool to help them navigate the world.

Using television characters as guides to navigating the real world can be an uneven pursuit.

Sarah explained why in her debut post for Vox’s “First Person” section.
