CC Screen: 2 Broke Girls Season 2 Wrap-Up

The second season ended recently, and to be fair a lot more happened in terms of overall plot than in the first, although somewhat less happened chara...

CC Screen: How We Met The Mother – Ted Not So Much

One of the biggest teases of a show, How I Met Your Mother wrapped up its eighth season recently. Now, eight seasons is no small feat, and it’s to be expected that after eight years a show starts to run out of steam.

Not only was there a plane crash, but it also lead to them being stranded for days in the woods. Not exactly the most bright a...

In the past decade or so procedural crimes have become these carbon copies of each other, spawning leagues of CSIs, Law and Orders and NCISs. However, this year we’ve seen somewhat of a different type of crime show emerge from the typical American procedurals, shows that could – at a glance – be called them, but they ...

Interview with FUSE Creative Director Brian Allgeier

Shooter games aren’t exactly hard to come by these days, but as the creative director Brian Allgeier, Fuse is a different animal from your norm. Insomniac Games didn’t set out to create a shooter that forcefully set itself apart from the competition, instead they created one that would be fun to play and allow you to play within a team. Fuse started as an idea of having an elite spy operative team...
