Michael Noble

Michael Noble may have had his tiny mind blown watching Oz on a rickety portable TV set in his bedroom in the 1990s but he still can't bring himself to forgive HBO for cancelling Deadwood. At least he now has a much better TV.

He has been contributing to Den of Geek since 2011. His writing has also appeared in Starburst, PopMatters, Sabotage Times, Crap Towns and The Guardian.
