1 Comment

Looking back at the year’s disappointments has become somewhat of a tradition for this blog (if you can count doing something for two years running as a “tradition”). While I’ve made a post about my favourite TV shows of the year, and I’ve got posts about my favourite music and video games of the year on the way, I think it’s worthwhile to remember some of this year’s disappointments.

Apparently, the people who make music, movies, TV, books, and games haven’t received the memo about the end of the world. That’s all for the best, I suppose.
