    DOCTOR WHO: DEATH IN HEAVEN (S8E12)

    OK where to start with this one?  There was goodness a-plenty here but at the same time, some jarring elements that just didn’t fit.  Overall however this was a fitting if somewhat depressing end to the season.  While the future of Clara is somewhat up in the air, Peter Capaldi’s Doctor has definitely cemented him […]

    “Conquer” – The Walking Dead Finale Questions Morality

    “I was thinking, how many of you do I have to kill to save your life? I’m not gonna do that. You are gonna change.” – Rick Grimes. Through its five seasons, The Walking Dead has cemented itself as a massive hit, breaking records, garnering a huge fan-base, and generating a tremendous amount of intrigue in the […]

    iZombie – Pilot

    I didn’t know what I was expecting when I came across this show … I hadn’t ever read the comic book, although I’d seen it on the shelves, so while I knew the main character was a female, that’s about all I knew about it … well that and the fact that it was on […]

    One of Us – Agents of Shield

    Confusion, concern and questions So is Skye’s dad (Cal – Kyle MacLachlan) the big bad of the latter half of the season or not?  We’re only two episodes in, but it seems that he’s been sent to the great big dumpster in the sky just like HYDRA was in the last episode. I guess if the […]

    Batman Fans Deserve Better Than Fox’s Gotham

    2014 was an exceptional year for genre nerds. In a span of twelve months, we received cinematic treasures such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. I slated Fox’s Gotham series in as the third and shiniest jewel in my comic book nerd triple crown. Much to my chagrin, I immediately […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: THE WRITING ON THE WALL (S2E07)

    Opening: Well, last episode is a lot to follow, especially since the end tag promised that we’d get to know a lot more about the alien map.  But at this point I think I can trust the show to balance things off well with the likely manhunt for Ward.  Am I right?  Let’s take a […]

    “The Blitzkrieg Button” – Agent Carter

    Well that was unexpected! This episode Agent Carter definitely has some very strange twists and turns to it, and some of them come completely out of left field (although I think I guessed some of it right) … but I guess before I get to that I should kind of explain how we got there in […]

    “Forget” – The Walking Dead Hosts a Dinner Party

    “Come and get me.” – Sasha At some point during “Forget”, I became enthralled with the idea that the concept of the episode would make for a great series finale, and the more I watched, the more it hit all the right marks. What might we want, some day in the long future, from a […]

    S1 Episode 6 Skin

    Who’s ready to go out on another hunt? Well, put on your crucifix necklaces. Get your bottle of holy water, and buckle up when you get into your Impala. Today the Winchester brothers are going on the hunt for a shape shifter! Similar to the past episode this one has a few creepy elements going […]

    “The Distance” – The Walking Dead Offers a Glimpse of Hope

    “Even though you were wrong, you’re still right.” – Carol Peletier An unusually-structured episode of The Walking Dead proves that the show can still provide thrills while offering glimpses of hope. After a string of episodes featuring other characters, our centerpiece in “The Distance” is Rick Grimes, hero and leader, as he tries to make […]

    In the Beginning – Supernatural (S04E03)

    One good thing about Supernatural is that they like to leaven their horror with a light sprinkling of comedy (I know sounds a bit weird, but they manage to pull it off quite admirably) and this episode is a perfect case in point.  Basically – we’re going Back to the Future … allow me to […]
