Feeling Bad For Villains When They Lose

I finished watching the first season of Once Upon a Time last weekend, and found it both entertaining and a great example of fully-formed villains. If you’ve never seen the show, it takes place in the fictional town of Storybrooke, where fairy tale characters, like Snow White and Red Riding Hood, live in our world […]

What’s So Great About Firefly? Part 1

Last Saturday I went to Comic Con and since it was my only day there, (would’ve gone the whole weekend if I could’ve gotten off work) I decided to try to get into the IGN theater where all the big panels are held. Of the many awesome ones I saw that afternoon, I was pretty […]
