Assignment Editor, East Coast. I don't binge-watch, I power-watch. I'm a major television junkie, but I love movies, too. I embraced my geek style in the new millennium and have run with it ever since. I have been working in the entertainment industry since forever, but it hasn't dulled my sense of wonder whenever I watch a great movie or an absorbing television show. I love genre -- in particular, I love vampires, the supernatural, and some slasher pics. I also love comedies -- they make life easier.
