Scarjo A Go-Go Episode 15: A Love Song for Bobby Long, or, "Accentuate the Positive"!

This week I tackle my least anticipated movie, the deep south John-Travolta-drinks-himself-to-death drama: A Love Song For Bobby Long! But although things may look grim for John, I'm happy to say that the budding Scarlett Johansson is back to fine form, despite duking it out with an obstinate accent! Listen as one of my most dreaded films becomes one of my favourite episodes yet!

Doctor Who 8.11 - Dark Water

The first part of the Doctor Who series finale Dark Water was pretty great. I know you haven’t heard me say that this season, and believe me; it was refreshing to not be mad the entire time and to be actually enjoying the acting and the plot line.

Follow me under the cut for a closer look at Dark Water.

The Dresden Readthrough: Cold Days

We continue our readthrough of Jim Butcher's uber-popular urban fantasy series The Dresden Files today with book fourteen, Cold Days. The continuing plan has been to do a book a month on the first Tuesday of each month, and with the final released book scheduled for us for next month, we're at least set through the end of 2014.

As for Cold Days, it may have already supplanted the previous book as my new favorite in the series, even with its questionable ending.

The Book Was Better Podcast Episode 102: The Cabin in the Woods (with guest host Lauren!)
