We tell a lot of different kinds of stories around here. Some horrifying, some thought-provoking, and some downright silly.
The mystery of the cube and what it means are finally revealed today. Well, some of its secrets. There is always more to learn when it comes to things beyond our understanding.
The cube is back, as it always was going to be. There are impossible things afoot in the second part of this story. Strange happenings that will change the course of our main character’s life.

Civilized is a first for me as a reviewer: it’s an improvisational podcast. Meaning the actors are just playing off each other. And as such, I can’t really judge it on its plot progression. Narrative, themes, writing quality: all out the window. There really isn’t even a storyline to speak of yet, just a premise.

Nimona hit the media landscape with such explosive power that avoiding spoilers was difficult. A stylized, bombastic, irreverent sci-fi fantasy mashup with an animation style reminiscent of Spider-Verse and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish has become a winning combination, practically guaranteed to get the attention of the critic community, and I’m no different. The question of Nimona was when I would review it, not if I would.

If you could wish for anything, dear reader, what would it be? And, more importantly, how would you phrase that wish to avoid it backfiring?
It’s a long-ago established idea in science fiction that we might live in some computer program. And thinking about it can lead down so many roads of thought. What does that mean about our lives, about our personalities? Who are we outside the simulation?
