I was lucky enough to be able to take it all in with power couple Brian and Erin Byrne, mover-and-shaker Matt Clayton and the late-arriving Nate Billings. Between cobbling together ... [More]

Editor’s note: Brian Byrne, Greg Elwell, and Mat DeKinder are all versed (not well-versed mind you) in the Star Trek Universe. Between the three of them they have seen (almost) all the movies and can tell the difference between a Klingon and a Romulan. This pretty much makes them the most qual... [More]

Our beloved "Doctor Who" has just returned to TV with new episodes. I'm sure many of you have been marking the days with your "Doctor Who" Advent Calendars, eating your Slitheen-shaped chocolates and hoping/praying that a coma will envelop you so as to make the time pass by more quickly.
