Editorial: Belated Emmys Wrap Up

I’m not big on award shows. I don’t like the self-congratulatory nature of them and I can’t stand the politics behind it. Having said that, I didn’t watch the Emmys.

Editorial: Could Under the Dome Be the Next Lost?

  First and foremost, I admit this is a ridiculous claim and I am being slightly facetious when I make premature comparisons to Lost with a series I haven’t watched yet.
