I was skeptical when I first heard of the new Lucifer show. It used to be rare to see a decent adaption of a comic book. For those who may not have known, Lucifer was a DC/Vertigo comic.

Of all the Simpsons episodes out there, there is but one that I cannot watch to this day. It’s not because it’s violent or offensive in any way. In fact, it’s a Christmas episode. So one would think that something as tame as a Christmas wouldn’t have such a negative effect on me. Well, you would be wrong. Continue reading
The wait is over Whovians!

Hey folks, Dale here, and here I have the honour of reviewing the newest BBC book release ‘Doctor who: Engines of War’, by George Mann, which for the first time depicts one of the most mysterious and unknown periods in the history of Doctor Who- The Time War. In this story we see the return of the War Doctor, as played by John Hurt in the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor, as he struggles to fight the endless war of the cosmos between his people, the Time Lords of Gallifrey, and his bitter enemies, the Daleks of Skaro.
