The Very Best Stuff

The Stanley Parable: Choose Someone Else’s Adventure

Ripped straight from my recurring nightmares, The Stanley Parable is a videogame about a sentient videogame that hates you and tries to screw you over as you play. It’s equal parts funny and creepy, and it shows how you can take a very simple idea and build something layered and thought-provoking out of it.

Sherlock Series Three (Be Careful What You Wish For)

I would call this a TV binge, but there’s really not enough of it for that. It’s more like a TV snack. It took four and half hours to watch and I kind of… didn’t like it as much as the first two series?

Dr. Quinn: The Worst Show I Was Ever Forced to Watch

When I was in grade four, my school had this total hard-on for pioneer times, and they used to make us watch Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman each week, before having a group discussion about what we learned. That’s right – there was a period of time, during my formative years, where my homework consisted of watching Jane Seymour and Joe Lando make out in the woods and then having a serious discussion about it. Thank you, Alberta public school system. This is probably why I always have to go on the internet and tell everyone about whatever crappy show I just watched.
