Analytical Madness is Moving

I hate to get serious in my news posts, let alone almost twice in a row, but it is once again serious time. Since my partner (for the website) left I have been bearing the costs of running the website on my own. Practically this is proving impossible. Hosting a website is quite expensive and …

The Cracked Helm – Why Halo: Reach’s Last Level is Masterful

  Alright, I’m going to have to start with a confession. I was not a big fan of Halo: Reach on a storytelling level. Sure, the gameplay was good enough and it had lots of flashy moments and pretty lights. But the characters were as flat as cardboard that fell underneath a steamroller and there’s …

Analyze is Back, Baby!

As you may have read, if you’re a good boy/girl, in my previous news article Maddy (former co-owner of Analytical Madness) has left the website.

A Lion Still Has Claws – Why Reforging Ice is the Best Scene in Game of Thrones

  Everyone has their favourite scenes in Game of Thrones. Hardly surprising, as the show is packed full of epic battles, incredible monologues and exciting plot twists. And my favourite scene… is none of those. It’s a scene where some old guy hands a sword to a blacksmith for reforging and then throws a wolf …

Selfless Redeemer or Selfish Controller? – Why Elijah Made Klaus a Worse Person

  Elijah and Klaus were no doubt the dynamic duo of The Originals. The Robin and Batman of the vampire world (unfortunately for many, minus the revealing suits), the bloodsucking murderous Bert and Ernie of the CW, the Analyze and picture-of-Analyze of the fanged figures. Two pees in a pot. And a heartwarming pot it …

  When dealing with a show where you regularly see 1000 year old super vampires, apocalyptically powerful witches and ancient culturally insensitive spirits battle it out you would perhaps not immediately jump to the conclusion that a frail little blonde human is one of the most powerful people on it. Yet, being the loveable contrarian …
