What a coincidence! I, too, have been revisiting at least the Wraith Squadron books from my youth. They’re holding up nicely so far, and the Rogue and Wraith books are easily a foundational part of my love of Star Wars. Such a simple concept done so well. Here’s hoping this new Disney movie can recapture the magic!

I finally finished Star Trek Enterprise (I started getting interested in Star Trek as an adult the fall after it was cancelled, so I missed it when it aired), and started rewatching Discovery since I’m attempting a chronological watch-through of all Star Trek. Once I’m done I’ll watch the last Star Trek series, the Read more

My wife started watching Lost for the first time this year and immediately got sucked in. It was one of my favorite shows ever (I still defend “The End” as being fantastic except for maybe the last 10 minutes), so it’s been a joy to see how she has fallen in love with it too.

Regarding Alias, Lost, and Fringe, Abrams stuck with Alias through 2005. The final season of the show was the only season he didn’t write on. Read more

I rewatched all of Buffy and Angel for the first time in over a decade and was pleasantly surprised by how well it all held up, as well as how my opinions of it had changed (Season 4 of Buffy isn’t as bad as I remembered, Season 5 is worse, Season 3 might actually be fractionally better than season 2 after all, and Read more

Thanks team, this whole article is great and a welcome reminder of the various things we (hopefully) all have to be thankful for, despite - well [gestures around] - everything. Read more

How about Star Trek Lower Decks turning out to be so much more than expected? The last few episodes, and especially the season finale, just made it a solid entry in the Trek franchise.

Two of the biggest fucking JRPG in years coming out within weeks of the first lockdown has been wonderful. Persona 5 Royal likely the best update ever to an already good (if overrated) video game plus Final Fantasy VII Remake that lives up to all my expectations and then blows them away at the ending by the sheer Read more

The Castle of Cagliostro is an amazing piece of cinema. Note I didn’t say “anime” because it can be enjoyed by just about anyone. The name Lupin III was forced on them because the character is based on the French gentleman thief character, Arséne Lupin, which was still under copyright even though the first stories Read more

I’m doing this year-long project where I try to watch a movie I’ve never seen every day. I’ve seen a LOT of movies, but I’ve also missed out on a ton of classic films, and anime films, etc and so on. Read more

I cannot stop recommending this to everyone. If you loved Castle of Cagliostro and are somewhat wary if CGI is a good medium for anime, this will definitely sell it to you.

I’m so excited for this. Some of the UA playtest material has been really awesome over the last year or so. Lot’s of goodies for players/DMs alike. Really hoping the Armorer subclass for the artificer goes in. It’s basically “magical Iron Man” and has been really rad in playtest.

Ever the cynic, I’m now awaiting a backlash from conservative RPG players over these changes. Do I dare open up reddit?
