Recommend: Tales From The Loop

If you’ve got an Amazon Prime account and you are into long, slow, and thoughtful sci-fi pieces, you’re going to want to check out Tales From the Loop. As the title indicates, this is an anthology show with each episode a (mostly) self-contained story.  Set in a small Ohio...

Quarantining Alone – The Wargamening
