Review: Les Miserables, Episode Four

Review: Les Miserables, Episode Three

To say that I was in shock after this week's episode would be a monumental understatement. Aside from the fact that I have been completely awestruck by Dominic West’s performance throughout the first and second episodes, there ha...

Doctor Who won't return for a full series until 2020

Broadcast dates in the age of apparent "prestige" television are never as consistent as it used to be. Enter the BBC's Doctor Who, which just wrapped up series/season 11. While Whovians (great fanbase name, by the way) can rest easy kn...

Rockstar Games sue BBC over GTA movie

First things first: lol. Second things, the very fact that Game Changer, the movie staring Daniel Radcliffe as Sam Houser and Bill Paxton as Jack Thompson is even happening at all, blows my mind. I simply can't handle the fact that ridiculo...
