What are the fanfictions?

This fact itself is not new, just think of some stories about Sherlock Holmes or Star Trek wrote in the past. With Internet, however, the spread of fanfiction has exploded: Internet is full of websites, portals and blogs that contain this type of works, and now people are inspired by movies, manga, anime, video games and TV series.

US TV series VS Italian TV drama

Why Castle and Patrick Jane beat Don Matteo and Cesaroni

Now that I can enjoy them in their original language, a comparison withItalian TV drama is even more unforgiving. But whose fault is it?
