South Park : Season 21 Revisited

I have been trying to pinpoint the exact point in time I started watching Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s animated adult cartoon South Park. The show has become such a staple of my television consumption that it seems as if I have been watching it since the time Stone and Parker aired their very first...

Is This the Year for Wichita State?

The mere utterance of “Wichita State” is enough to strike fear into the hearts of NCAA Blue Bloods, and not just because of their  petrifying mascot. The once-cute Shockers have transformed into a perennial March Madness contender, using a stifling defense to fluster even the most organized offenses in college basketball.

The third episode of Season Eight of Doctor Who, The Robots of Sherwood, pits one English legend against another. It’s a lighthearted romp penned by longtime Who and Sherlock scribe Mark Gatiss, who relishes the opportunity for another Doctor-meets-historical-figure episode.
