Spoiler-Free Review: New Game

The World New Game is a simple slice-of-life anime. It’s set in modern-day Japan. The only thing that’s unique about the world is the apparent lack of men. Seven episodes into the anime and we’ve only seen one male character–a small boy apparently related to one of the secondary characters. I don’t think the lack […]

Sense and Sensibility

San Diego is lucky enough to have Sense and Sensibility the musical at its Old Globe Theatre in Balboa Park. Amelia and I love Emma (by the same writer) when it came out about five years ago, so we were thrilled when we heard about Sense and Sensibility. We were not disappointed. It’s always fascinating to see different […]

And as I munch of my way-too-buttered snack I am bombarded with even more franchise films: X-men, Captain America and Independence Day. All continuations […]

A Fangirl Review: Agent Carter pilot

Reviews, TV No Comment

The show starts out a few flashback to the end of Captain America the First Avenger. This helps those who maybe didn’t see the movie or those (like me) who haven’t seen the movie since it was in theaters. It also helps give an idea of the timeline and back story of our character. No […]
