On May 14, 2015, FOX gave us the television series Wayward Pines based on the book series by the same name written by Blake Crouch. The series starts with a brooding FBI agent Ethan Burke, sent on mission to find two missing agents. While en route, he and his partner are involved in a car crash. Ethan survives and awakens in the weird but seemingly idyllic town of Wayward Pines. The town even has it’s own motto: “Work Hard. Be happy. Enjoy your life in Wayward Pines.”

Sleepy Hollow's Casting Announcement Shows Its Priorities... and Its Failures

(Inda Lauryn has been published in Blackberry, A Magazine, Interfictions, The Toast, XOJane, and Callaloo as well as had her work featured on blogs such as Black Girl Nerds, Bitch Flicks, and AfroPunk. She is currently working on a novel and a sci-fi web series, occasionally blogs at Corner Store Press and hosts a radio show at MixCloud.)

Sleepy Hollow was an immediate success when it first premiered in the fall of 2013. Those of us who frequently livetweet had a blast with the first episode and were immediately hooked. By the time we got through the season finale of the 13-episode run, we were elated and thought we finally had the show we've wanted for years.

Then season 2 happened.

Rest In Peace Satoru Iwata

"On my business card, I am a corporate president. In my mind, I am a game developer. But in my heart, I am a gamer."
     - from Satoru Iwata's keynote at the 2005 Game Developer's Conference

Satoru Iwata

Satoru Iwata was just on my computer screen presenting upcoming titles for Nintendo’s products. He seemed happy while in human or puppet form. He was doing what he loved, talking about video games, and was as optimistic as anyone could be when doing what they love. This made the sudden news of his passing even more jarring.  This was the first death in gaming that has seemingly shocked and saddened everyone in this huge yet strangely tiny community. Regardless of your platform or genre allegiances, it’s impossible to not miss a legend when their light is extinguished too soon. This was the case with Satoru Iwata.
