AdamisAweso.me In Review: November's Best


It's fitting that this is a kind of review post, since reviews dominated the traffic on this site in November. Of the top 10 most-trafficked November posts, nine of them were reviews. That includes last night's Glee review, which had less than three hours to draw traffic before the end of the month, but still managed to crack the top 10.

OK, on to the top five, and in case you don't remember from last month, here's the drill: www.AdamIsAweso.me is one of the vanity domains for this site. At the start of each month, I use it to spotlight the 5 most "awesome" posts of the previous month (aka the 5 posts that drew the most traffic).

5. 30 Rock "College" Reaction
This wasn't my favorite episode of the season, but it might have my favorite quote, courtesy of Jack Donaghy. "Money can't buy happiness. It is happiness."

4. "Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale" Review
This WAS my favorite comic of the month, and easily my favorite "Serenity" book of the set.

3. Glee "Never Been Kissed" Reaction/Song Review
I gave this episode a relatively positive review, but in retrospect, this is where the show stopped being "Glee" and started being "Kurt's Important Issue Show of Issues that are Important to Kurt". Not as catchy a title, nor as entertaining of a show.

2. Review: Buffy Season 8 #38 - "Last Gleaming, Part 3"
Looking back, I wasn't as hard on this issue as I should have been. The "Twilight" story in the Buffy comics is quickly collapsing under its own weight. Issue #39 comes out today, and hopefully I'll have a review up tonight, and maybe I'll be wrong about the arc.



1. Glee "The Substitute" Reaction/Song Review
"I see you guest starring on a show I loved and I'm like 'FUCK YOU!'". Readers on the Internet clearly prefer hate to love (or tepid reaction), because my least-favorite Glee episode of the season was the most-viewed post last month.

POST WITH STAYING POWER
Modern Family "The Old Wagon" Reaction
Gee, I wonder why people are going to this post over and over again...

DGOW OF THE MONTH
Rachel McAdams
This makes me happy. She's one of my favorite DGOW choices in awhile. I even rented just about every movie she's ever done from Netflix, though I haven't gotten around to watching all of them yet. Other DGOW selections last month were Aly Michalka, Amanda Seyfried and Olivia Wilde.
