  • Why Battlestar Galactica Is Binge-Worthy Sci-Fi

    Science fiction is one of the few genres within popular culture that successfully places the metaphorical mirror right in front of us. That mirror reflects back our human nature, why we do the things we do, and our personal vices and virtues as individuals. Throughout the 20th/21st century, there have been shows that do this well.

    After finishing Kuroko no Basket over the summer, there was a void in my life that needed to be filled with more anime. Still, when a friend told me he’d stumbled across a show that had something to do with a bunch of animals hanging out in a cafe, asking a llama about his skills […]




  • Outlander: The Sexiest Time Travel Show on Television

    Time travel is sexy: the Doctor, the DeLorean, perhaps a car showing up at midnight to take you to a different decade. Pop culture has a fascination with being able to jump around to foreign environments, but one of the most interesting takes on time travel is on the Starz series Outlander. The television show is […]
