Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

It's been a while since I've written an obsessively enthusiastic recommendation of a TV show (I believe the last one was Hannibal, which is currently in its second season and continues to be amazing), and I think it's high time I revisited the genre. And it just so happens that I have the perfect show to… Continue reading Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

Orange is the New Black and Deviating from the Norm

There is a lot of media criticism out in the world that focuses on the idea of representation. It's no secret that the vast majority of characters, especially protagonists, in Western media are straight, white males--a tendency that leaves anyone not fitting in that category with, at best, only stereotypical representations of themselves. Less frequently… Continue reading Orange is the New Black and Deviating from the Norm

SURPRISE BONUS POST DUE TO PACT DEFAULT! Don't you love the blog pact?* Greetings! Today is nostalgia day.

Aside from Cabin in the Woods, which is less a horror film than it is an exciting meta action-adventure that just happens to feature a lot of blood, they just aren't very interesting to me. The way I see it, a good horror movie is suppose to scare you, and… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Hannibal; or, Thank You for the Nightmares

Doctor Who & the Awful Companions

Okay, people, I know the Hunger Games movie just came out and everyone's all excited and posting about it, BUT! Something else big happened this past week in the world of sci-fi nerds, which I think deserves a bit of a nod and, in true Whoosh fashion, excessively critical over-analysis. What happened, you ask? Well,… Continue reading Doctor Who & the Awful Companions

Why Sherlock is Brilliant (and Elementary Worries Me)

I don't know how many of you know this (probably most of you), but I, like, really like Sherlock. The BBC show. I mean, I'm a fan of the original canon, too, but BBC's Sherlock pretty much owns my heart and soul at the moment. I haven't felt this strongly about a TV show since Firefly, so.… Continue reading Why Sherlock is Brilliant (and Elementary Worries Me)
