Terrible Movies That Should Have Been Great
Movie making is a complex art. It takes more than a good idea to make a good movie. There are plenty of great ideas that end up being terrible movies. Whether it's the writing, acting or poor pacing, these movies turned a great idea into a painful movie experience.
What is Currently the Best CW Superhero Show?
The very first article I ever wrote was a preview for the CW superhero shows of Fall 2016, so it seemed only right that I would post an updated list of how I thought these shows ranked now that the season is over. Some shows got a major boost this season while others fell from grace, and I’m here to give you my “expert” opinion on which show is currently the best in the DC Flarrowverse.
How To Have a Successful YouTube Career
Everyday countless numbers of people try to make a career for themselves on YouTube. Whether they view YouTube as a way to make some nice money on the side or as a full-time career, people are constantly looking for advice on ways to separate themselves from everyone else on such a crowded platform. I interviewed several big YouTubers to get their advice on how someone can become successful on YouTube.
Why the Channel 'NowThis Nerd' is Doomed to Fail
I know a lot of people are angry about the launch of the "new" YouTube channel, NowThis Nerd, and I want to explain to those who don't understand why that is the case. In 2013, Philip DeFranco launched a channel called SourcefedNERD, where hosts Steve, Meg and Trisha spoke about everything nerd related. The topics ranged from TV shows to movies to comic books to board games, and over the years the lists of hosts and personalities grew. This past year SourcefedNERD celebrated their 1 millionth subscriber. Then on March 20th, it was announced that Group Nine Media decided that SourcefedNERD would be cancelled. The final video on the channel was released on March 24th and that was the end of it.
Forgotten Cartoons From the 2000's
I pride myself on my ability to remember all the shows of my childhood. While many people can name all the main characters in Rugrats, I challenge you to find somebody who can name the two main characters in Mr. Meaty without looking it up. That is what this article is for, to remind you of these weird shows. Why am I writing this? I have no idea, but read it anyway.

Human Target and How the Forgotten DC TV Show Would Succeed Today
DC Comics have been represented in live action form on television since Adventures of Superman aired in 1952. There are currently 9 shows airing that are based on DC Comics, while in the 90s there were 5. If you look at a timeline of DCTV shows, you'll notice a gap between 1997, when Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman ended, and 2012, when Arrow began. During that 15 year period, only 3 DCTV shows aired: Birds of Prey, Human Target, and Smallville. Smallville was an iconic show that kept audiences (mostly) entertained for 10 seasons. Because Smallville was such a success, people rarely remember Birds of Prey or Human Target. Human Target only lasted 2 seasons but I truly believe if it aired today, and not on FOX, it would be a hit.
Why the M*A*S*H Series Finale is Still The Greatest Of All Time
There's nothing more hotly contested than a series finale. After investing years into a show, people are hoping to get the ultimate payoff. Some series finales fall short (check out my article on that here) and some rise up and actually elevate the series. While shows like Six Feet Under, The Shield and Breaking Bad have had incredible finales, nothing holds a candle to how M*A*S*H ended. When the 2 and a half hour series finale aired, it was the most watched episode in television history. There are many reasons it is the greatest series finale in history. “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” encompassed what everyone loved about M*A*S*H. It had some very funny moments but also had one of the saddest moments in the show's history.
