by on March 12, 2008
A couple of days ago, an acquaintance—someone who knows I have every one of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD sets—pointed me toward this Slate article by long-time political analyst Jeff Greenfield.

Impeach "Lil’ Bush" Season 1 for Comedy Less Funny than Getting Waterboarded

by Ed Liuon March 12, 2008
I have never been a fan of President George W. Bush’s administration.

"Witchblade" Vol. 5: ‘Fatherhood’, By Takayama

by SB20xxon March 11, 2008
Witchblade has been one of my pleasant surprises in 2007/2008. Instead of just offering up fights without much meaning, it’s a show that’s given viewers a character-driven story and good drama, which in turn have given the fights some substance. Beware: the next few paragraphs contain some spoilers, so read with caution, especially those of […]
