review 1: Being a huge fan of The Big Bang Theory I was excited to get this book and read it. It was a big disappointment and not worth the 18+ dollars that I spent on it. The book is repetitive and covers the same topics over and over. There are many inconsistencies with spelling and date...

review 1: Like all of Blackwell's books, this one features really exceptional essays and essays that are not very good. I thought that each of the books I've read from this series has a tendency to focus on just one aspect or perspective of the books/shows they analyze. With Batman, it was...

review 1: I thought this was an ok collection of essays. The first several essays were good and a few good ones were scattered throughout. It was a bit watered down for my personal tastes, but I'm always happy when an attempt at philosophical ideas is brought to the masses.The biggest id...

review 1: I've reached for it because I liked House MD and found his arguments interesting and wanted more insight and I've to say it's a very interesting book. The philosophy is just enough that anybody can understand what the author wants to say even without have actually seen the series...

review 1: Maybe 2 stars is a little harsh... 2.5, I guess. I'm definitely a Potterhead (a little less now, but my obsession was pretty drastic at one point), and firmly believe that Harry Potter has a lot to offer and is a lot smarter than often given credit for. However, I don't think thi...

review 1: The only way to appreciate this astonishing book is to obviously read the graphic novel, but this book is just so darn good that you really can tell that some work was put into to it. Each paper is written so well that you know what they are taking about and why they were chosen...

review 1: This book was very difficult to read - not due to the writing style, but the reasoning. Many of their arguments were made in convoluted, over-complicated ways when they could have been stated simply and succinctly. There was also a fair bit of repetition between chapters. I was l...

review 1: House is the perfect show for philosophical analysis - in particular, it deals frequently with the grey areas of ethics, especially bioethics in medicine. Although there wasn't anything particularly groundbreaking in this collection, it was great to revisit the show in this way a...

review 1: The contributing authors were spot on with a lot of the philosophical concepts they decided to address. However, it was disappointing that so many of the authors picked the same topics AND made similar commentary in consecutive essays. They even picked the same passages to quote ...

review 1: I love this series to pieces and this installment lived up to that ideal. Here we see several authors discuss Harris's world intelligently and thoroughly. The only issues that I could see readers having were that there were a few instances of repetition from article to article, t...

review 1: I am possibly teaching a HG special topics seminar next year(!) so I've been researching some textbooks to use (thank you, desk copies). This was fantastic. The philosophy is pretty 101-y, which is fine for an undergrad class, especially one in an English department taught by a n...
