Being a teenager is awkward enough already, without the problem of turning into a cartoon fox. Sucks to be Fenton Cobbler.

Even by themselves, the terms “amateur,” “adult,” and “furry” can all give one pause when it comes to fiction; when all three apply to the same work, there can be even more reason for hesitation. Still, when it’s only a mere ten bucks to see whether someone’s debut novella is any good, it can be worth it to gamble from time to time, and in this case, for the most part, that gamble has paid off.
Toy Story 3 tries to do something pretty brave: it attempts to age in real time, with as much time passing in-universe since the previous film as has passed in real life. Something similar was tried with the Harry Potter books, but while that mostly resulted in the books getting overlong and less well edited, with Toy Story 3, it actually succeeds.
After six years, over a hundred episodes, and countless snide remarks about the plot made by people who never even watched the show, Lost has come to an end. To cap the whole series off is an epic, two and a half hour finale that’s sure to be divisive, even among the series’ staunchest fans. How does it all measure up?
The penultimate episode of Lost sets the stage for what promises to be a pretty damn epic finale. After a season of bringing two storylines to a head, the switches are ready to be thrown to send both plots (and both worlds) full steam ahead to their respective culminations, which may very well be one in the same.
With the Series Finale just two episodes away, we make the deepest withdrawal from the Department of Backstory that we ever have, and get some intriguing answers about the show’s central mythology, along with some new questions.
As the final season of Lost builds rapidly to a climax, the show nevertheless takes the time to give us a secondary pre-climax climax—in the form of a nice, swift kick between the legs.
Season Six has, up til now, had a very deliberate group-by-group, character-by-character progression for the story’s setup. Well, now the pieces are all finally in place, and it’s time to set everything going full-speed.
Yeah, when you saw that this week’s episode was going to be a Hurley-centric one, you thought it was going to be a heartwarming romp through lightheartedness and comic relief. But you were so, so wrong.
For whatever reason, Desmond has always been the harbinger of big paradigm shifts in the show. First, it was the introduction of the Hatch. Then, it was the acknowledgment that something more-than-natural was happening with the Island. Then it was having one’s consciousness travel through time. Now, Desmond takes what might be the show’s final step in shattering the remaining paradigm: the alternate universe that came into existence at the beginning of Season Six.
