Tim Mitchell Thought the Best and Worst About Everything This Year [By...

Tim Mitchell tried his best to work within the format that we gave him for our year-end list but it didn’t work out so well. But being fierce nerds, we know that sometimes you have to go’on ahead an let a square peg be a square peg. So here’s Tim Mitchell’s picks for...

Resolved: 2011 [Our Very Best]

Ernessa says: It feels so weird to not be making any resolutions this year. Some people love this time of the year because of the gift exchanges, time spent with family, goodwill toward man, blah, blah, blah — but I’ve always been a resolution girl myself. I love making the list...

Worst of 2011: TV… [FaN Boos]

Amy Says: To continue my streak of disliking the stuff everybody else likes (ie. I didn’t care for A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD, which so many others loved…maybe I should be the “On the Contrary” guy next year. I swear to g*d I’m not doing this on purpose.) In my...

Best of 2011: TV! [FaN Cheers]

Amy says: Can a remake of a BBC show be considered new? If so, then PRIME SUSPECT is my pick for the best new TV of the year. Maria Bello is awesome in everything I’ve ever seen her in. Detective procedurals aren’t normally my thing, but I love the complexity of the characters...

Best of 2011: Songs! [FaN Cheers]

The Best of Times/The Worst of Times 2011 [FaN Remembers]

Ernessa says: Well, I’ve written a lot about my least favorite moments of the year. I invite you to check out my “How to Be Sad” blog for reference. My favorite moment of the year was hands down taking a three-day trip to Martha’s Vineyard with my bestie, Monique. It...

Best of 2011: The Movies! [FaN Cheers]

Amy says : My favorite movie of the year should have been RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, but I was in the Colorado wilderness the entire time it was in theaters. The original, with Chuck Heston, is my favorite movie of all time. The first time I saw it, I knew I wanted to be an actor. It was...

Best of 2011: The Books! [FaN Cheers]

Yay! It’s finally here. Our yearly round-up of the stuff we just loved and the dreck we absolutely hated. The big surprise of this year was just how much our Fierce and Nerdy bloggers agreed … except when it came to our Worst Book picks (more on that tomorrow). As always, we also...
