With the onset of the new year and the end of the old David and I decided that we were going to spend some time reflecting on 2013. There were some great things that happened in 2013. We saw some great movies, read some great books, and played some amazing games. David and I decided we wanted to share some of our best of 2013. Now these are all things that we experienced for the first time in 2013, this does not necessarily mean that they came out in 2013, but that is because with books and comics we are not always the best about keeping up with current trends.

There have been a couple shows that David and I have recently dropped because they just were not holding our attention. It can be hard to decide what new shows to watch. If they do not hook me at the first episode do you try a couple more or do you just give up because there are so many other things to watch.
