We're still looking back at this amazing year for Scientology watchers, refreshing your memory about what got our attention in 2012.

We hope you have plenty to say as we look back at the stories that mattered in the past twelve months…

As the fall began, we were enjoying all the speculation by reviewers about the Scientology content in Paul Thomas Anderson's movie The Master. (Those that actually knew some church history recognized that the film is shot through with it.) We pointed out how Anderson's script was even more vicious about Hubbard and his invention than the finished movie, and we heard great suggestions from our readers about who the Joaquin Phoenix character, Freddie Quell, might be based on.
