The Fiend Behind the Mirror – Why The Necromancer Was the Best Written Villain of Season 1

  As season 2 of Legacies begins I feel it’s pertinent and absolutely necessary to reflect upon season 1 first. After all, it has a ton of issues, one of the bigger ones being the monster of the week formula. Most of the monsters that appeared were one-dimensional, bland and do nothing but screech and …

Missing the Light at the End of the Tunnel – Why The Originals’ Ending Doesn’t Work

  The Originals has been over for quite some time at this point. And many people were… not entirely satisfied with the ending. That is to say that I hope the writer’s room for Legacies is fireproof and they don’t accept fanmail without thorough inspection. But why were their dearest fans so upset? What lies …

The Hurricane Inside the Stoic – Analysing Sten From Dragon Age Origins

  One of the most interesting things about the Dragon Age video game series is that the writers just love laying things out in the open from the start.

  5 Min Read The Elder Scrolls has been in decline for quite some time some would argue. Some important people. Mostly me. And nobody with any brains would argue otherwise.

When The Make-Over Drains Your Soul – A Further Criticism of 2019 Jasmine

Groundhog Die – Why Hell is Other People is the Best Vampire Diaries Episode of Season 7

  When anyone mentions season 7 of “The Vampire Diaries” I get a cold chill down my spine. A warm feeling collects down my throat and I can feel the acid burning my esophagus. Suffice it to say… I am not a fan. I am not a fan of any season of TVD after season …

Be Careful What You Wish For – Why the Aladdin Remake is Terrible

  My therapist told me, before I fired her, that I’m supposed to try to be more positive. So let’s be optimistic. Aladdin is a movie. It really is. It has actors. It has dialogue. It has CGI, a lot of it, and it even has cinematography. And I can honestly say that I haven’t …
