Doctor Who 7.05: The Clock Winds Down for Amy and Rory

With producer Steven Moffatt, star Matt Smith (the Doctor), and actors Karen Gillan (Amy) and Arthur Darvill (Rory) telling the media for the last several months that the Doctor Who episode “The Angels Take Manhattan” would show deaths of the characters Amy and Rory, I was afraid that the characters would merely appear to die, only to find they had been saved at the “eleventh hour.” But no.

In 2010, writer Dan Savage and his partner Terry Miller created a YouTube video that promised LGBTQ youth that life will improve when they leave high school, a video that inspired the It Gets Better Project.

Martin’s saga, A Song of Ice and Fire, who have had to suffer through multiple deaths and dismemberment over the course of many books, as well as the television series, Game of Thrones, need to know their pain means something.

Watch The Guild Season 6 Trailer

It seems like only yesterday that Cyd Sherman, a.k.a. Codex, was fired by her therapist for not setting limits on the time she spent in her MMO. Now look at her. She’s as charmingly neurotic as ever, only this time she has a job for the very same MMO. And that’s the set-up for season 6 of The Guild, the show that made Felicia Day a small-screen star.

A ‘Guild Wars 2′ Player Reviews ‘Mists of Pandaria’

World of Warcraft (WoW) is the standard by which other MMOs are judged. But as it happens, I only just started playing MMOs, and I chose Guild Wars 2 (GW2) as my entrée.
