Viewing

Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Complete Series [Blu-ray]
Starring Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Brent Spiner

One of my favorites of all time. Someday…there will be an episode guide

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind [Blu-ray]
Starring Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo, Elijah Wood

Another love of mine. Finally got to record a video about it for the channel.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series
Starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan, Nicholas Brendon, David Boreanaz, Anthony Stewart Head

A show that changed my life and one of the reasons I started the channel.

Avatar - The Last Airbender: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] (9 discs in 1 box)
Starring Dee Bradley Baker, Zach Tyler, Mae Whitman, Jack De Sena, Dante Basco

One of the most perfectly complete shows of all time. A show that captured the Oz or Narnia sense of adventure in something that felt totally original yet incredibly familiar.

Angel: The Complete Series
Starring David Boreanaz, Alexis Denisof, J. August Richards

I know there are some people that are greater fans of Angel than Buffy, even though it never landed for me with quite the same ferocity. Still near and dear.

WILLOW [Blu-ray]
Starring Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Warwick Davis, Jean Marsh, Patricia Hayes

As April Ludgate once said, if you have to ask then you don’t get it.

 

Gaming

 

One of the most bizarre and beautiful examples of storytelling and world building I’ve ever played through. And it’s all done without a single line of dialogue. A haunting masterpiece…</box quote>. This release also includes Limbo so double the goodness!

 

One of the most memorable games I’ve ever played. A metaphor for something really beautiful that had me weeping by the end of it. And, like Inside, they accomplished it without a single line of dialogue.

 

Given the age of GOT and Star Wars we’re in, there is something eerie about the arc of Mass Effect. But the trilogy is one I play through every couple of years. Storytelling and a sense of discovery are two of my biggest hooks in games and Mass Effect has them both.

 
The Last of Us Remastered - PlayStation 4
Sony Computer Entertainment

There is nothing for me to say about this game that hasn’t been said. It is a testament to the power of storytelling in video games, whether those are done through cut scenes or not. I feel the exhaustion from Joel and Ellie’s journey and the desperation to find something to hold onto in a world gone wrong. Naughty Dog is the reason to own a Playstation.
