Meet Benjy

I would love to attend a convention that pays equal parts attention to The Sound and The Fury, Lost, and Benji the dog. Alas, I suppose we all can dream. Seriously though, once you get down to the second or third tier of comic conventions, the “guests” can get quite disappointing. ↓ TranscriptRICK: Since we couldn't go to Comic-Con last ...

Smoke Out

If in doubt how to get a laugh, blow something up. It usually works. If it doesn’t, blame short attentions spans that are always clamoring for something to blow up.

Why Lost can do nothing but disappoint

I was a quasi-latecomer to Lost. After watching the premiere episode and a couple after, I fell out of regular viewing until I caught up sometime during the third season. Since then, for better or for worse, I’ve been hooked. As the finale draws near, I fear it was for worse. But wait, I am not simply being blindly critical. ... Read More »
