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 Spill.com, 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.

    First things first. I LOVE Madoka Magicka. Great characters. A well-written dark and disturbing story with one of the most strangely hopeful endings to a series like this that I have ever seen. Also one of the most distinctive and memorable aesthetics I’ve seen in anime for a long time. Second, would you mind talking about Psycho-Pass soon? I generally like the Uro-butcher’ work, but there is just so much about Psycho Pass in terms of writing and design that annoys me. I know people hate season 2 in terms of a bad followup, but I never thought the original was all that great to begin with.

    The Sybil system makes no sense in terms of its origins and most of the character writing has no payoff beyond shock deaths and weak climaxes.
