I preface this news bite by saying I love Halloween, so it feels like it’s just around the corner. Hello Pennywise, bringer of my childhood nightmares. Your new look may just do the original justice.

  1. Love Rock’s Modern Life from Nickelodeon. It always made me laugh as he and his weird friends get through thier crazy world they live in. I am definitely looking forward to Doctor Strange as well. I love magic and mysticism and so this will be a big change from the Norm.

    • Yes! Love all the Nickelodeon shows.
      Doctor Strange is going to be so amazingly different. I’m excited to see how they’re going to explain such conceptually complex stuff.
