Reviewing Disney+'s "Goosebumps" Revival, and My Hopes for Season 2
God, I love Goosebumps! Let me tell you a bit of a personal story. When I was in third grade, I saw nearly all of the kids with these books that said, "Goosebumps" on the front. I had no idea what they were; I did know that they were supposed to be horror stories directed at children. I also knew one other thing: I wanted those books! I finally bought a Goosebumps book about a year or two later, though I didn't collect them in order, mainly because there were a lot of them out at that time.

It's Impossible to Disconnect from Reality While Watching 'The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes'
Coriolanus Snow said the whole world is an Arena, and we need the games to remind us of what we are and what we’re capable of. It’s hard to disconnect from reality when the fictional world reflects it so vividly.
"Speak No Evil" (2022): A Tragedy of Manners
Any good horror fan will have, at some point, put themselves in the shoes of the genre's many on-screen victims. And, when doing so, most of us like to imagine that we'd give those psycho killers a good run for their money. That we would run outside instead of upstairs, that we wouldn't trip over our own feet, and that we'd make sure that if the bad guy looks dead, he is, in fact, very much dead.
How ‘I Think You Should Leave’ Conveys The Autistic Experience
Last time, I wrote about how Tim Robinson’s sketch comedy series, I Think You Should Leave is deeper than you think because of its unique brand of absurdist humor and cringe metacommentary. There is no denying that the show excels in illustrating the awkwardness and intricacies of social situations. However, it unexpectedly resonates strongly with many people on the autism spectrum.
The Strike is Finally Over, but Did Anyone Really Win?
Every TV fan's long nightmare is over. The actors strike came to an end barely over a month after the writers' strike ended. We should all be happy about this, right? Well, we are, but we can't help but think of the proverbial bloodshed.
Villainess Review: Victoria Gossett (Medium)
I've said this before in past reviews: Medium really delivers in the villainess department. It's less about quantity and more about quality, as while I've seen many consecutive episode without a villainess, the ones that do have one really have some amazing ones. Season Six (the show's first on CBS after five seasons on NBC) definitely had some good ones, and that includes the episode, "Dead Meat."
Self-Awareness: The Backbone of the MCU
Even as a fan of the Marvel Universe, sometimes it’s difficult not to feel as though we’re being completely inundated with new projects, movies and shows. Since the start of the pandemic alone, Marvel has released more than ten blockbuster movies — and that’s without even mentioning their burgeoning world of new TV shows. From Loki and Wandavision to Hawkeye and the increasingly notorious She Hulk: Attorney At Law, Marvel fans have had a lot to keep up with in recent months.
