I’m a big fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and it’s descendant, Cinematic Titanic. Today, the fourth episode of Cinematic Titanic, Legacy of Blood, was released.

In Media by Daniel M. Clark1 Comment

It is for me—at least for the Prequel-era stuff. Now, I’m 33 years old. I grew up on Star Wars, and thanks to the novels of the 1990’s and 2000’s, I’ve enjoyed a lot of stories set in the galaxy far, far away.
