    Who Needs Gotham?

    When I first heard about Gotham going into to production my eye brow was raised. I mulled it over in my mind and thought well it would kind of be great to see a pre-Batman police procedural series featuring a plucky young Jim Gordon railing against the criminal element no matter where it lay. When […]

    Joss Whedon Vs. Phil Coulson

    This morning I read a recent Q&A Joss Whedon @josswhedon did with Dana Schwartz over at mental floss and I have to say some of his answers really raised my eye brows here and there. DS: People don’t really stay dead in Marvel movies. I think we’ve had to deal with Loki dying four, five, […]

    S4E05 – Supernatural: “Monster Movie”

    In Monster Movie we have a couple of different campy scenes similar to classic 1930’s horror movies with a shapeshifter that is infatuated with the Silver Screen.  We first saw a shapeshifter in S1E6 – Skin and while the monster of the week here has the same abilities – he definitely does not have the […]

    Previously, on “The Walking Dead”

    “The Walking Dead” returns this Sunday, February 8th, at 9pm on AMC. I’ll be reviewing the back half of Season Five of the AMC drama here at Zone Six, and thought it might be ideal to get a refresher of the series out there and perhaps inspire some discussion on the merits of the post-apocalyptic […]

    SGU – SERIES 1 RECAP

    Stargate … at one point, it seemed to be on all the time with reruns of SG1 and live episodes of Atlantis appearing regularly on TV it seemed to be the logical inheritor of the Star Trek mantle and it did it with flair (by the way have I mentioned that there seems to be […]

    Once Upon a Time – S1E04 – The Price of Gold

    It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity of visiting our friends in Storybrooke, but I’ll try to catch you all quickly over the coming months so that we’re reasonably up to date by the next season.  If you’ve never seen this show before, allow me to give you a (very brief) recap of […]

    DOCTOR WHO: IN THE FOREST OF THE NIGHT (S8E10)

    The world has been covered with forest overnight. In London, Clara and Danny are babysitting a Coal Hill ‘Gifted and Talented’ student sleepover at The Zoological Museum. One of the students, Maebh, gets separated from the group and finds her way to the TARDIS parked in a leafy Trafalgar Square. The Doctor and Clara talk […]

    I Need Your Pain: Melinda (S2E17) – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

    The long awaited … wait a second, that’s actually not really true is it?  I know that there was some mystery about why May has/was (been) called the CAVALRY, but in reality it didn’t really matter (at least not in my opinion).  While some mysteries NEED to be answered, others can stay as mysteries as […]

    ONCE UPON A TIME: PILOT (S1E01)

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away … oops, sorry … I’m getting my genres all mixed up!  Let’s try that again shall we?! Once upon a time in a fairy tale land, a wicked witch casts an epic curse and the land is encased in darkness.  The only way that the good […]

    Dare Devil on Netflix: Series review Part1

    Netflix’s Daredevil finally arrived for our viewing pleasure on April 10th. I’m sure most fans have been eagerly awaiting to see what Marvel had to offer under the banner of Netflix. Would it be the same  old same old or would it be something totally different? The answer is that it’s vastly different than anything […]

  • Doctor Who
    Doctor Who – THE HUNGRY EARTH (S5E08)

    This is the 2nd two-parter of the Matt Smith era of the new Doctor and just like the Angels episode it delivers! This set of episodes is all about the Silurians (see below) and also serves to advance the overall season arc further forward although only incrementally. The Tardis materializes 10 years in Amy and […]
