Movies I Wish You Had Seen – Timequest

It’s summer, and television sucks for the moment. The eventual lull in movies with the addition of the ever-present lack of audience manners that permeates the suburban movie-plexes leads me inexorably to my DVD collection for solace. There are any number of diversions for me, some well known, others… not so much. And so, from […]

Falling Skies: Destroy All Humans…Again

There was something very familiar in TNT’s pilot  Falling Skies, the new epic summer blockbuster sci-fi adventure series starring Noah Wyle.

Scenes From an MMORPG Pt. 1: A Noob’s Tale

Being a child of the 80s, I was fascinated with video games. Even if I didn’t have any money, I always found my way to the arcade. I was lucky enough to own an Atari 2600, and as time progressed, so did my gaming systems. As I got older, I started straying away from video […]

Doctor Who: The Only Good Dalek Reviewed

On the heals of Amandatron3000’s post on BBC’s extermination of the Daleks, I give you another example of Dalek over-use in the hardback graphic novel Doctor Who: The Only Good Dalek. While I feel graphic novels can be used to expand and explore the vastness that is the Doctor Who universe, The Only Good Dalek falls […]

The Book Of Lost Things
