valente2Nick Valente- Television Editor

I’m a just Television and Radio guy from Brooklyn, planning an inevitable takeover of the world. However, I am still looking for a dumb mouse, preferably named Pinky, to accompany me. At the site, I’m a movie, television and graphic novel kind of guy and that’s what I’ll be writing for the most part.

Expect some book and music reviews as well though [insert demon horns here]. I grew up in Bensonhurst Brooklyn, the same neighborhood many of the best mafia films of our day were based on, idolizing guys like Robert DeNiro,  Martin Scorsese and Al Pacino. I’m also a big sports fan and follow the New York Yankees intensely.
