And Our Regular Features….
THE HOLLYWOOD GEEK: A FAR FROM PERFECT STORM – Screenwriter David Rosiak with the terrifying tale of sleepless nights and stressful days all leading to disaster (on NBC).

THE TOP 13… SUPERHEROES WITHOUT SUPERPOWERS – They may not have come from another planet or been exposed to toxic radiation, but these heroes can nevertheless get the job done, and often with style.
