Hi, what are you looking for?
The Gist is an independent daily entertainment blog covering movies, TV, gaming, and more, (from the latest streaming drops to cult classics). The internet is rife with nastiness and outrage but we like to think of ourselves as an oasis in that particular desert. We just love entertainment in all its forms and we want to share that love. That’s it. We’re fun and upbeat and we’re powered by Plex, a place where that love of film and TV and podcasts and gaming exists in real time, with thousands upon thousands of things to watch and listen to and play and enjoy. Come for the hot takes, stay for the free movies!
Our diverse staff was handpicked to match the vibe and tone of The Gist. We have industry professionals and ivy leaguers and TV staff writers and feature film producers and directors. Some writers we knew from other publications, others we forced off of their couches. Some are domestic and some are abroad. Our team spans four generations from Boomers to Gen X’ers to Millennials & Gen Z’ers, hoping that you’ll find someone with a perspective you can relate to. The net result is a staff full of distinct, wonderful voices. If you want to know the special sauce of The Gist, look no further than the amazing writers on staff. They are our everything.
