And now for something entirely different...


I recently had the opportunity to share my thoughts about two of the TV shows that most captured my imagination this past year. After the season opener of The X Files (of which I am a devoted longtime fan), I pitched an article to The Mary Sue, looking at the way The X Files deploys a common sci fi / dystopian trope in comparison to the way The Handmaid's Tale (a show I was riveted by last spring) does. You can check my piece out here:
