“American Horror Story” vs. “Supernatural”: Who’s Scarier? Best Scary TV Shows: “American Horror Story” vs. “Supernatural” I’ve never been a huge fan of horror movies.

“Off the Map”: Television Review As with most of the TV shows I end up being an ardent fan of, I was lukewarm about ABC’s midseason, jungle medical drama, “Off the Map,” when I saw it advertised.

Print Friendly

The 2011 Oscars have come and gone. Awards were given out, speeches were had and deserving films were seemingly snubbed while others surprised us with the awards that they were given.

This Is the Song that Doesn’t End: A Preview of HBO’s Upcoming Series “Game of Thrones”

HBO Game of Thrones
Print Friendly

First and foremost (and not to knock or belittle the fantasy-reading community), I am not an avid reader of the fantasy genre. There’s a commonality among the folks who tirelessly attend conventions and renaissance festivals, an energy and enthusiasm that I simply do not possess – not just with regard to costumes and role play, [...]
