Site Owners

Billie Doux began reviewing episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for some of her online friends back in 1997, became obsessed with reviewing, took on more shows, contributed reviews to several web sites, started BillieDoux.com in 2004 when the sheer volume of reviews got out of hand, and began recruiting contributing writers in 2008. Click here for a somewhat complete list of her reviews and here for Frequently Asked Questions about Billie and this site. Billie also has a personal blog unrelated to entertainment.

Billie is currently reviewing The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, Rectify, Supernatural, and various books and movies, and also contributes Daredevil, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Orange is the New Black and Star Trek: The Next Generation reviews.

Panda (a.k.a. Cian) spends far too much time telling TV writers how to do their jobs. After spending years contributing to all the standard online forums, he started his own blog in 2011 where he dedicates time to talking his favourite shows up their own behinds and tearing them apart, in equal measure. His taste ranges from the TV legends we all know (Buffy) to current fads (True Blood, The Vampire Diaries) to the downright blasphemous (Pretty Little Liars, Charmed). Panda is currently reviewing iZombie and Once Upon a Time. He previously reviewed Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Roswell, The Secret Circle and Teen Wolf. (You can follow Panda on Twitter.)

Slightly more forward-looking obsessions include Star Trek (various forms), Buffy and The X-Files, and Billie and Sunbunny's enthusiastic championing of Supernatural is responsible for the Lost Summer of 2014, when she marathoned 9 years of it at once and wouldn't stop talking about it. Always listen to Billie when she recommends something. Juliette is currently reviewing Star Trek: Voyager and The West Wing (mainly over the summer when the undergrads all go home and campus becomes eerily empty) and also contributes Community, Farscape, Game of Thrones, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Supernatural and The X-Files reviews.

JRS, a.k.a. Joseph Santini, depending on which universe you meet him in, is a writer, artist, gardener, hunter, mechanic, quantum physicist. Interestingly enough, his first pieces, whatever the world, were all in some version of the New York Times: The Gotham Punch, for example; the Bayonne Bushwhispers, in another world: and in one world where none of Manhattan was ever colonized, the Fort Lee Dedication. In this particular universe, he is also a screenwriter and filmmaker, and also blogs about international Deaf issues at surdusexplores.blogspot.com when he's not drinking coffee.

Logan Cox is a newspaper writer and aspiring author living in a small town and endlessly obsessing over stories. These stories usually come in the form of modern TV shows that allow him to gleefully eat away hours upon hours of his life while adding fuel to the raging fire that is his wild imagination. For some time, he has fancied himself a critic and aficionado of sorts. Now, in a vain attempt to start creating more than he consumes, he has decided he might as well write about some of the shows he watches from week to week and get his thoughts out to the world. Doux Reviews appeared to be a safe, fun, and accessible way to achieve this end. Thus, here he is. Logan is currently reviewing Mr. Robot and Preacher, and also contributes Daredevil and Game of Thrones reviews.

Thomas Ijon Tichy, known as Kathemy on most message boards, is a Swedish long-time science fiction fanatic who originally got invested in the internet fandom on the Star Trek bulletin boards back in 1997. His favorite authors are Stanislaw Lem and Philip K. Dick and his favorite artist is Kazimir Malevich. Thomas currently reviews Gotham and also contributes Farscape and Happy Valley reviews. (You can follow Thomas on Twitter.)

Ben P. Duck has known Billie for getting on towards twenty years but despite this she continues to humor him. He is a veteran of the Gratuitous Trek Flamewars of the mid-nineties, for which he received a number of decorations for snarkiness. In his spare time, he is a cultural anthropologist, raises two daughters and a neurotic cat, and hopes one day to have free time again. His interests include bacon, information theory and not learning to play the guitar. To find more about him click here (where he rambles with declining frequency). Ben previously reviewed The Prisoner, the original Star Trek and The Wire.

Sam T. Cat does not like you very much, but will indulge your desire to bring him tasty treats. If you are quite lucky and pass his rigorous entry exam, you may be permitted to rub his belly. He writes about whatever he damn well wants to, whenever he damn well feels like it. (Click here for a sampling of his reviews.) You may attempt to contact him, but he will only respond if he was going to do it anyway.
