Santa turns over a new leaf [Year in Review, Part 5]
by | December 25, 2014 | 69 Comments
Ho ho hoooo boy. Well, this sure was a rough year for ol’ Nick, what with the ongoing class action reindeer labor lawsuit and the elf uprising and all. It was getting close to Christmas time so I resorted to training some scab caribou to show old Rudolph that he... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 13
by | December 24, 2014 | 79 Comments
Yay, Pinocchio delivers a sweet, heartwarming Christmas episode, filled with unexpected cheer and warm fuzzies. It’s such a relief, because I was not looking forward to reprising last week’s cryfest. Thankfully for us, no matter how much Dal-po thinks separating himself from the ones he loves is the best he... More »

Healer: Episode 6
by | December 23, 2014 | 119 Comments
Adorable. I feel like a giddy teenage girl watching this show, in all the best ways (squee!) minus the worst ways (you know, the mean girls and crushing insecurities and parents who just don’t get you), which makes it pretty much awesomely entertaining. I thought we’d had our story well... More »

by | December 23, 2014 | 120 Comments
The end of the year marks the beginning of awards season, where everyone hands out shiny trophies for the best of the best. Yes, but what about the middling, and the not-so-stellar? What do they get? This year I’m spreading the love around so that every drama gets to go... More »
