    AGENTS OF SHIELD: HEAVY IS THE HEAD (S2E02)

    Opening: Season two started strong, with an excellent action episode, first of a two-parter that brought the series right up to date months after the season 1 finale.  The world and character building from season one seems to have paid off, while the writing and acting is top form.  What’s next?  Basically, part 2 of […]

    THE HERO OF AGES (MISTBORN)

    This book was one that I took with me on a long road trip.  I expected it to last me at least half the trip, but I quickly found that this one more than the other two was one that I just could not put down.  While I was bored for the rest of my […]

    Agent Carter – Bridge & Tunnel

    Continuing on from our previous recap and review of the 1st half Agent Carter: Now is Not the End (click the link to see that review and get the detailed synopsis in case you missed it) this review will focus on what happens next and how Agent Carter continues to grow and develop. One good thing […]

    DOCTOR WHO – KILL THE MOON (S8E07)

    Clara and student Courtney Woods send the world a video message from The Moon in 2049, giving them 45 minutes to choose between humankind and an innocent life.

  • Gotham
    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 Part 2

    As I start writing this today we’ve been dealt the “shocking” blow that Joss Whedon formerly @JossWhedon has left twitter… again. As some might recall he left a few months ago and only returned for fear of what would be his unloved child Much Ado About Nothing for the free promotion. What I really want […]

    ENDER’S GAME

    In the not too distant future, mankind has barely survived two wars with an alien race – the Formics (also known as Buggers) – and the IF (International Fleet) has determined that it is time to take the battle to bugs! Ender and the other genius children of Earth are taken into a training center […]

    ENDER’S GAME (MOVIE)

    I’ve already written a review of the book Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card and to be honest it is one of my most favorite books … EVER.  I think that has to some extent colored my review of the movie which is perhaps unfortunate for those that haven’t read the book.  For those of […]

    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, […]

    THE RITHMATIST

    I think I’ve said this before in some of my other posts, so I apologize for the repetition, but I just don’t know how he does it? Every time I think I’ve read everything written by the man, I find more books that I’ve still not read (I’m now working my way through an audio […]

Corwin returns to Castle Amber with the body of one of the creatures that he, Flora and Random […]

    Stranger in a strange land – Heinlein

    Definitely one that is a classic of the SciFi genre, Stranger in a Strange Land is actually quite a hefty and difficult book. Heinlein‘s writing style is very evident throughout this book and this is probably one of his most famous works. The story while based in the future, is definitely driven by the current […]

    THE REALITY DYSFUNCTION

    The 26th Century In the late 26th Century mankind had spread across the galaxy and colonized over 900 different planets.  With huge technological innovations behind them they now had intelligent and communicative starships that were able to navigate themselves and “swallow” across the void of space. Split into two factions – the Adamists were the […]

    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 […]
