Nothing against past "ages," but saying we live in "The Golden Age of Television" (cable, streaming etc.) is not only a dramatic understatement but also pretty much a given – almost a cliche – at this point. Today, shows that are forgotten about and slow-die on the vine are the same shows that probably would've […]

Sir Terence David John Pratchett (or Terry, if you read his books) was possessed of a singular intellect, with a passion for writing clever dialogue for clever characters. His Discworld books are particular favorites of mine, but nothing, and I mean nothing, comes close to Good Omens, his 1990 collaboration with another clever person, Neil […]
