  • Fargo Season 3 is the Ultimate ‘True Story’

    The first time I watched the third season of Fargo, upon its initial airing, I was befuddled by the opening scene. Despite being described as Siberia with family restaurants, 2010’s Minnesota is a long way away from an interrogation room in 1988’s East Germany. The scene sees a government...

  • First Time Watching: Star Wars Clone Wars 2D Microseries Volume 2

    While consistent in regards to style and quality of animation with the first, the second volume (or third season) of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Star Wars: Clone Wars feels like a completely different show when it comes to storytelling and structure.

  • First Time Watching: Star Wars Clone Wars 2D Microseries Volume 1

    “Like fire across the galaxy, the Clone Wars spread”. Before the galactic conflict first teased in the original Star Wars was explored across seven seasons of 3D animation, there was… another. In 2002, upon the release of Attack of the Clones, Hasbro asked Lucasfilm to develop a Star Wars...
  • Battlefield 6 Needs to Capture the Spirit of Bad Company
