Ta-da! This is my 100th post since The Warden’s Walk went online in November of 2010. It has been visited 15,214 times since then, has 23 active subscribers, and, I hope, has been of good use and interest to all of you.
[EDIT: Also, I am trying out a new theme — that is, appearance — for the site. What do you guys think of it? I want to know how easy it is to read and navigate compared to the previous theme. Which do you prefer? I’d appreciate your input!]
July has been upon us for over a week now, and it is time I let you know what I’ve been up to. These are the reviews I expect to have done this month.
Highlander Season 2 has been finished some time ago, and the review is in progress. One of my favorite characters leaves only a few episodes in, but the writing is noticeably getting better. Happily, the writers are showing a greater interest in history, and I hope they continue down that path.
I am now re-watching parts of Doctor Who Series 3, taking notes for review this time. Some fantastic stories get told, the best of them (“Human Nature”/”The Family of Blood” and “Blink”) back-to-back. While Martha Jones isn’t as interesting as Rose was, she is competent and fairly likable.
Additionally, I have finished Myst: The Book of Atrus, and hopefully shall not wait too long before reviewing it. The book directly engages questions relating to the art and nature of writing itself, and I’d like to examine how the book’s discussion relates to similar ideas proposed by the likes of Lewis, Tolkien, and MacDonald.
Other possibilities include further reviews of the BBC’s Robin Hood Season 1 episodes and the occasional movie review.
I am currently reading The Dragonheroes by Blake Garrett Anderson and Lilith by George MacDonald.
