Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    the graphic designers working on Supernatural still suck at making decent-looking DVD covers and posters huh?

    • Chris Cox

      Not terribly imaginative, true.

  • Jean-François Martel

    I was JUST wondering why Kat wasn’t on the podcast to talk about Supernatural lol

    • Chris Cox

      She quit watching it a few seasons back, believe it or not.

  • Jean-François Martel

    uh, i feel the opposite about Wynonna Earp, i found season 1 kinda weak and loved most of season 2 (and when they did the pregnancy i got nervous but they handled it better than most shows)

    • Chris Cox

      I’m glad you enjoyed it but I had trouble. Certainly had bright points. But man, Waverly always keeps me going.

      • Jean-François Martel

        yeah i don’t know why i keep sharing my opinion about something when someone disagrees with me Even though no one asked me.
        Anyway it’s true that Waverly is everything

        • Chris Cox

          I see no problem with expressing dissenting opinions as long as it doesn’t take a turn for the nasty or dismissive. Which you did neither. So no worries!

    Gotham is an enjoyable elseworlds universe.

  • birdy the critic

    Two things on the argument that Gotham is, “A good Elseworlds tale, so relax.”
    1- Elseworlds can still be bad. See JLA:the Nail where Selena Kyle puts on Dick Grayson’s Robin outfit after Dick dies to inspire Batman to fight once again.
    2- A friend of mine who reviewed the first season of Gotham ultimately ended the season with one question: What is the point? I check in on Gotham now and again and I’m still not sure what the point is.
    Also, the flaws I saw in season 1 are still present. The dialogue is awful. The persistent inclusion of many Batman villains for no real reason is annoying. The treatment of characters like Renee Montoya is quite frankly appalling. Also, the problem with the tone of the series is it cannot fully commit to a completely goofy, over-the-top take on Gotham or a grounded realistic crime drama like what the Nolan films were aiming for. It’s left in this horrible middle ground where it is not good enough at anything to be worth discussing. I don’t even hate it. I just want it to go away.
    On the other shows: Lucifer is great. Supernatural needs to die to stop propagating fans who say things like “I don’t care if it’s bad.”
