    “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 […]

    ON BASILISK STATION

      I mentioned in a previous post the Honor Harrington series of books by David Weber, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually spoken about them in any depth, so I thought I’d do so now. The first book in the Honorverse is called On Basilisk Station and it is available for free from 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 […]

    THE WHEEL OF TIME – THE GATHERING STORM

      While I would be amongst the first to state that Jordan’s writing style is not the best (please note – when I state Jordan’s style is not the best, this primarily refers to his long windedness (I know, that’s not even a word!) and the way that he sometimes tends to repeat the story […]

    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 FOUNDATION SERIES by Isaac Asimov

    Probably one of the first “epic” series of science fiction books that I had the pleasure of reading.  The Foundation Series written by Isaac Asimov – a grandmaster of Science Fiction and along with Arthur C. Clarke & L.Ron Hubbard, one of the grandaddies of the genre – is a series of novels spanning a 500 year […]

    Superman For A Modern Time.

    Superman. The man of steel or the big blue boy scout? As legendary as this character is he also happens to be one of the most divisive in today’s modern age. The common complaint I often hear is that people can’t relate enough to him. Fair enough I guess. Warner Bros sort of listened it […]

    A PLANET CALLED TREASON

    From the creator of the Enderverse series, A Planet Called Treason is an exciting read that really captures your imagination: The story of Treason is as follows – once upon a time, in the far distant future, there was a revolution.  The old government was overthrown and the new Republic transported its former masters to […]

    “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 […]
