    Shadow of a Doubt


    Shadows are fun things to use when taking photographs. I found this amazing picture online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPQge4ib4WI.

    The shape of stories


    The AV Club article gives a straight to the point review of a lot of well-known secret agent television shows. It compares three different types of sub-genres in the secret agent genre: patriates, pragmatists, and the rogues. The patriate style of secret agent works to defeat the bad guy who …
