I’ve made some pretty questionable Halloween costume choices over the years. That’s it. That’s the whole tease.
With NaNoWriMo coming up, I wanted to do a column about character naming. Because nobody needs to read a book with someone named Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way.
This week’s column is about my favorite sci-fi book series growing up. It still (mostly) holds up today. There’s no movie or TV series of Planet Builders. But there should be.
I really wanted to like Star Trek: Discovery, but CBS and Paramount are making it really hard. Meanwhile, The Orville is fun, funny, and hopeful. It’s much better than Discovery. Here’s why.
When I was a teenager, I really liked the Robin Williams film Toys. But when I watched it with my wife and daughter earlier this year, it was surprising just how much of it didn’t hold up in any way whatsoever.
Almost ready to wrap up the 30th anniversary celebration of Star Trek: the Next Generation. Just one more post tomorrow, on the 30th anniversary of the pilot episode. Meanwhile, here’s the rest of my top-12 list.
You can’t do a 30th-anniversary celebration of any TV show, let alone Star Trek:TNG, without a best episodes list. So here’s the first part of mine.

I really wanted to like The Defenders. At least, I wanted to like it more than I actually did. This column contains spoilers.
Journalism careers do not work the way they do on most TV shows. It drives me crazy. So I wrote a column about how it bugs me, and how other things on TV bug me.
The “troubles” are supernatural afflictions affecting the townspeople of Haven, Maine, on a show called Haven that originally aired on SyFy. The show is now on Netflix, and I figured I should finish watching it after only making it through two seasons … Continue reading
I’m posting this late today because I fell asleep and I dreamed. A lot. But not about any of these six things, interestingly.
My company has been on a “get to know how everyone works together” kick, which is a great idea. But it terrifies people who suffer from anxiety. Not that that’s going to stop them, despite the fact that about 18% … Continue reading
I got a fidget spinner yesterday. Of course I’m going to write a column about it.
I like the SyFy TV show Dark Matter. Each of the main characters — at least, the core ones — are numbered. There are six of them. You know what that means.
Of course I watched GLOW on Netflix. Like there’s any doubt in your mind that I would have done.
Two weeks ago, I dropped my phone in the toilet. This is my story.
Y’know those boxes you always think you’ll get around to unpacking, but never do? It’s amazing the things you find in them.
