    “Too Far” Demonstrates Hope of a Sustained Excellence for Steven Universe

    When Steven Universe returns (presumably) next year, the biggest thing I will be looking for from the show is consistency. There are many shows on TV right now that are consistently good or even very good, but none can achieve […]

    Adventure Time: Bonnie & Neddy. Princess Bubblegum is a Bad Person.

    RWBY’s Volume 2 Has Constant Thrills, Intrigue

    Viewing media in different ways is always an interesting experience, interesting seeing how your opinions differ depending on the way you consume it. I watched RWBY Volume 2 week-to-week last year, and wasn’t sure what to expect going into my […]
