Since its release, however, the film has become a box office hit and received praise from virtually every human being on the planet, myself included. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” is another family movie that seemed destined to flop at first glance. A modern day 3D extravaganza based on a 1960’s cartoon that was never even so great to begin with? I smell another “Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.”
Legendary science fiction writer Harlan Ellison is working with IDW Publishing to resurrect the original script for his classic Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever” in comic book form.

Here are five free things to do and see on your next trip to Taos.
