Once Upon a Time: Over their heads or creative geniuses?
Examining show elements such as the continuously growing cast, numerous lands/worlds, and the dual timelines, discuss the arguments for whether the television show has presented a storyline that is too confusing to follow, or if the show continues to show the creativity of the show runners.

Dystopian YA: On the Rise or Facing Death
Analyse whether or not dystopian young adult novels have become essential reading or a completely redundant genre. Make sure to include examples like The Hunger Games and Divergent and discuss how they have increased the popularity of dystopian fiction for younger readers. Also evaluate newer titles and their impact on the publishing industry (whether or not they serve a purpose, are simply a cash grab, etc.).
I agree 100%, but bashing the two remakes would defeat the purpose of my article. Sissy Spacek’s performance is the ultimate.
I wrote this article specifically about the character, not the franchise. Trust me, I love The Rage way more than the two remakes. This was meant to celebrate Carrie White on her own.
I was very sad to see Denise (one of few LGBT characters) die on the current season of The Walking Dead. What bothered me the most was that she was killed in place of Abraham, who actually dies the same way in the original comics. I loved her character because she was an absolute badass, but at the same time I wasn’t sure how upset to be because this is a show where EVERYONE dies. I had to remind myself that tons and tons of straight people died before her, and that in her world who dies next is extremely unpredictable.
On the plus side, her girlfriend Tara is still on the show and was actually the very first LGBT character to be introduced. I’m praying that they keep her around for a while. From the sounds of it, there’s a lot more of her story to be told. The show runners really listen to their fans, so hopefully they have paid attention to everything regarding this debate and we will see Tara thrive for a while longer.
Here’s hoping this serves as a wake up call. Great article!
Thanks so much for writing this! I’ve always loved Episode 1, and it’s great to see people stand behind the prequel trilogy. I feel like it has always received unnecessary hate for no reason. Great read!
Deanna was a smart woman, but she didn’t have the outside experience to truly understand what was going on. She realized this quickly, which is why the transition from her to Rick as leader went so smoothly. It was really sad to see her go, but her ending was very powerful.
1984 and Brave New World are two of my absolute favourites! Looking forward to reading The Handmaid’s Tale soon. I will definitely be completing this list.
Friends is one of those shows that everyone needs to watch at least once all the way through. Think what you want about the show’s quality, but there are so many life lessons, combined with tears and laughs, to be found in this show. I’ll always love Friends.
