It’s 2014. It’s Saturday afternoon and I’m checking my queue on Crunchyroll to see if some of the anime series I’ve been following this season have been updated. Technology has altered the way I consume anime, and sitting in front of my computer is a far cry from my childhood self sitting in front of the TV in 1985. I desperately waited for the next episode of Robotech to air because I wanted to see if Rick Hunter would choose Lin Minmay or Lisa Hayes. Of course, my 10 year old self had no idea that Robotech was actually culled from a Japanese animated series called Super Dimensional Fortress Macross and the whole saga was stitched together from three different series to make the 65 episode count for daily syndication.
I just wanted my love triangle and my mecha space battles, okay?Read More

As has been shown time and again, people who download the most pirated media also tend to purchase more than others. Given that geeks are known for being voracious media consumers, it's no real surprise that genre TV tops the torrent charts. (Not that we condone such things.) Piracy tracking firm CEG TEK took a look at the top ten TV shows downloaded via Bittorrent last week, as well as the top ten networks whose stuff was being shared. Game of Thrones, shock of shocks, holds the top spot, followed by The Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead, and Arrow. In seventh place, you'll find Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Closing out the list at #10 is Once Upon A Time. (We've got the full chart below.)Read More
