Best Video Games of 2010
Games lubricate the body and the mind. Benjamin Franklin (1712 - 1803)
Hello. I submitted this list - or one very like it - to Kill Screen's "High Scores" critical round-up poll. It's like Pazz and Jop for games and can be found here. But until then, here's this. Links are to my reviews, if they exist. I also wrote a wrap-up for the Herald; you can find that here.
The theater is so endlessly fascinating because it's so accidental. It's so much like life. Arthur Miller (1889 - 1932)
HI. I think we're doing year-end stuff. We've talked about it, at least. We've also talked about hot wing podcasts and France box sets though so that doesn't mean anything. Whether it stands alone or not here's a list of the best TV shows of 2010.
The best comedies of 2010 were also the best dramas. These four hilarious shows can all turn poignant on a dime without ever getting mawkish. Hell, that's also true of every other comedy on this list, save 30 Rock.
