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 started getting 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.

Billie is currently reviewing Continuum, Fear the Walking Dead, Orange is the New Black, Rectify, Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural, and various books and movies. She has reviewed Alias, Angel, Battlestar Galactica, Breaking Bad, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Dead Zone, Dexter, Dollhouse, Firefly, Heroes, Highlander, Justified, Lost, La Femme Nikita, Moonlight, The Prisoner, Six Feet Under, Smallville, Star Trek, Torchwood, True Blood, Veronica Mars and Wayward Pines, and contributed to reviews of The 100, 24: Live Another Day, Awake, Black Mirror, Doctor Who, FlashForward, Lost Girl, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and The Vampire Diaries.

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.

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, Once Upon a Time and Teen Wolf. He previously reviewed Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Roswell and The Secret Circle. (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 contributes to reviews of Community, The X-Files, Game of Thrones and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
