Maybe time travel was always the bane of Barry Allen’s existence. I remember a lot of time travel stories from the comic books when I was a kid, back when the Flash had to use a treadmill to time travel and Carmine Infantino was the quintessential Flash artist.

01:15:01 – 01:30:00 Welcome back to the next chapter of The Last Jedi Edition of the 15-Minute Force.

The television series with the longest episode titles known to man (which still aren’t as long as my own 15-Minute Force titles) has returned for a second season. I liked the first season of Black Lightning. Specifically, I liked that it featured a middle-aged superhero, who happens to be black.

I just completed the main campaign in this video game, and just in time, too. You see, as I’m typing this my birthday is tomorrow. I’ve just about convinced myself that I need my wife to give me the new Spider-Man video game as a gift, but I didn’t have enough storage space on my […]Read more "Mad Max Video Game — a review"
