Review: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”

Anybody Watch “The Strain”?

Hey, a non-political post. The Strain, based on the books by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, just made it through the first season, and, if memory serves, the first book of the trilogy. It’s been quite some time since I read the novels. I must say I loved this show. Was it a bit […]
