    How the Twilight Zone changed Horror and Science Fiction

    Rod Serling’s classic anthology series can still be recognized by many people over 50 years later. This series about the strange, supernatural, and the macabre had a huge impact on the way we create television shows and how to tell them. With anthology series making a come back I think its important to look back at the creation of the show, its many setbacks and revivals, and what the future is for Twilight Zones and shows it inspired.

    • A couple of similar shows to consider would be The Outer Limits and Black Mirror. The Outer Limits being a show that premiered shortly after the Twilight Zone and Black Mirror being a contemporary show on Netflix having just recently released its third season exemplify the huge reach and influence The Twilight Zone has had over the years. It would be really interesting to see just how many Twilight Zone-inspired shows there have been over the past 50+ years and when they were most prevalent. – JustinBakie 4 years ago

    What We Can Learn from Sid Meier's Civilization series

    With the recent release of the acclaimed Civilization VI it would be interesting to look back at long lasting grand strategy series and the value it holds. Each iteration of the series has players building an empire starting at the beginning of human civilization and developing over thousands of years into the Space Age. This allows players to experience concepts such as culture building, technology development, military growth, and handling diplomacy as your empire changes over time. With this article I’d like to explore how the various games handles these concepts and how the choices in game allow the player to learn first hand about history and how our world developed and changed over time. It also would allow insight on how Civ VI handles these themes in particular.

    • I look forward to seeing this written, I learned a ton of history and facts by reading the Civilopedia in Civ2. Not sure how the modern games have handled it but I think there was always a lot lacking in how civilization actually started and expanded. Smaller groups were assimilated into larger ones or banded together to deal with threats; cases where settlers struck out to found new cities as part of the empire were far rarer. – Sboother 4 years ago

    I grew up with the prequels and I still find them to be disappointing messes.
    They are different and chock full of creativity, but that doesn’t stop them from being the bizarre snoozefests they still are(Mostly I & II)
    Just for entertainment value I’d recommend the Mr. Plinkett reviews online. The new TFA review even provides a rebuttal to articles like these.

    I don’t think Boyhood should be prime example for greatness.
    I liked the movie, even thought it was great and innovative. But I think there are plenty of other examples that would be better suited, including other Linklater works

    My college had a showing of The Holy Mountain last year.
    I already was a fan of the movie but it great seeing it on the big screen. I even won an original print of the Japanese poster.
