‘Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Emma Vieceli | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp To date I have been very underwhelmed by this series.

‘The X-Files 10×02: Founder’s Mutation’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Note the letter-opener sticking out of his head.” ‘Founder’s Mutation,’ a much stronger episode than last night’s The X-Files premiere, finds a balance between mythology and the human condition and then hums along in that sweet spot. If the story of an egotistical scientist conducting experiments on his own children is perhaps a little shopworn in the […]

‘The X-Files 10×01: My Struggle, Part 1′ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“If I’m putting my ass out there, I need to know it’s hanging by more than just a very slender thread.” After eight years of radio silence, the number stations are spinning back up. Returning to the air with the inauspiciously-named ‘My Struggle,’ The X-Files manages to wed frenetic pacing and herky editing to David Duchovny’s affectless […]

Bluetooth speakers are ten-a-penny these days and there’s seemingly a new model released on a weekly basis, so it takes something special for one to stand out from the ever-increasing crowd.
