Naan Pizza

I woke up on my birthday and decided I would have pizza for breakfast; So I searched through my pantry for possible ingredients. Some naan in the breadbox tempted me, and I decided to use it as the foundation for my hearty meal to come. I assembled the other ingredients on my counter. They were: […]

  Let’s talk a bit about Suits. Suits is an entertaining legal drama, which serves as an interesting case study.   For those who are unfamiliar, Suits is a competently stylized and well-paced show which follows the career of attorney Mike Ross and his mentor, Harvey Specter. Mike Ross joins Pearson Specter, a successful law firm, under the pretence of […]

TV Tuesdays with Rory: House of Lies

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

House of Lies is a tricky one. As a critic, I try to break things down into components, hopefully arriving at an understanding of what I do and do not enjoy. House of Lies has been difficult to look at this way. For that reason alone, it might be one of the more interesting case […]


TV Tuesdays with Rory: The 100

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

I’ve mentioned The 100 before on this blog, but it deserves its own entry. For those who are unaware of it, The 100 is a television program available on Canadian Netflix. It tells the story of a human race that has evacuated Earth in favor of life in space, after an apocalypse-like crisis. They decide […]


TV Tuesdays With Rory: Marco Polo premiere

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

Marco Polo, a Netflix drama that premiered on December 12,  follows the historic figure during his early years. So much of Marco Polo’s initial appeal is its mystery, so I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to really say much of the plot. It’s sufficient to know that Marco Polo is, at heart, a show about […]

The gourmet’s answer to fast food part 1: Tomato sauce

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

What follows is my bi-weekly dilemma. I come home from a long day at school and work, totally unwilling to cook for myself. Nobody’s going to cook for me, yet the idea of fast food, or of spicy, pre-packaged ramen noodles sounds too disappointing for my inner gourmet to bear. And I’m broke: I can’t […]


TV Tuesdays with Rory: Supernatural TV

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Supernatural television has been an interest of mine for a long time. Despite taking much of its content from horror, it is not necessarily designed with the same goals in mind. By not having to worry about frightening the viewer, supernatural TV is able to explore new and interesting themes regarding already prominent character ideas. […]
