Freaks and Geeks: 15 years later

Freaks and Geeks: 15 years later By: Virginia Eader When the show first aired, I was in 7th grade.

The Doctor’s Newest Companion: Mary Sue

The Doctor’s Newest Companion: Mary Sue By: Brit McGinnis CAUTION: Contains major spoilers, including those from past episodes.   Like many Doctor Who fans, I was extremely impressed by “The Name of the Doctor.” It wrapped up the Impossible Girl plot very neatly, and had plenty of action and new monsters to delight.
