Random Articles - RAW 150904



Hi all, Good news this week, I've happy to read that my 2 favourite Sci-Fi shows of 2015 (Dark Matter and Killjoys) are being renewed for a second season.  I really enjoyed the story telling in both and delving into what motivates each character to act the way they do.  If you can find them they are worth the viewing.  This weekend I'll be continuing The Dinosaur Lords, it's been a good read so far, if not a bit confusing with all the characters, Spanish-style titles and NSFW parts.  Anyway sit back with your favourite beverage and enjoy a good read this weekend... 

This one looks interesting.
