Did he really read and watch all this...?

For the sake of brevity and lack of motivation, I'm going to use a rating system for the list of works below. Bear in mind that I normally don't like using such a thing but I think in this instance it'll be helpful.

We're all pretty familiar with the star-rating system: One star (*) is the lowest and 5 stars (*****) is the highest. The 1/2's give leniency to works that have a little more to them. :)


PS. This list is far from complete. I've read and watched more than twice what I have here since I originally began compiling this post.
