Why "For All Mankind" Should Be On Your Radar (Even If It's Apple TV+) [OPINION]

Okay, so Apple's streaming service, Apple TV+ dropped some time last fall, and all anybody was talking about was how The Morning Show didn't live up to expectations – then "suddenly" it got better (???). Now, I know with so many shows teeming with well-known names and starring huge actors, stuff seems to get lost […]

Opinion: Commander Hybrid Should Stay Limited - "Magic: The Gathering"

Opinion: Commander Hybrid Should Stay Limited – "Magic: The Gathering"

For years, Magic: The Gathering has been not just a card game, but a conversation. I'm all for using this analogy because it lends itself to discussion and in time, the big discussion.

Before the masses descend upon me with fire and pitchforks, I am aware that speaking of live-action anime is taboo (insert bloody scream from the distance). However, I do believe that they could be fun if done well and I think there are some anime that lend themselves for live-action shows or movies. In the […]

"Riverdale": So My Family Had Some Thoughts on The CW Series [OPINION]

It was the most wonderful time of the year – Thanksgiving! And of course, that meant family time…and with family time comes everyone's differing opinions on all our favorite shows. So with that said, I thought I'd share a little bit of the conversation I had about one of my favs, The CW's Riverdale. For […]
