TV Review: The Last Man on Earth Episode 3.10 “Got Milk?”

Wow. Just when I think The Last Man on Earth can’t get any better, it goes ahead and shows me I know nothing. In its Winter premiere, not a single series regular cast member appears. That’s right. It’s another solo episode but who are we following exactly? Well, last time, it was a man, and it […]

Loot Crate on Building Blocks

The latest Loot Crate haul is all about being the Master Builder. I was very curious to see what would be inside with that theme and they definitely knew what they were doing here. From LEGOS to Tetris, to my childhood favorite, Power Rangers, this box has it all as the company celebrates having built Loot Crate five years ago and […]
