Mad Men: Season 7 (Part 1)

Mad Men: Season 7 (Part 1)

Each time I start a new season of Mad Men I’m forced to reevaluate why I keep watching the show.  I’ve been a fan of it since the very beginning, but I quickly noticed that each season starts pretty weak and then builds to a terrific climax that pulls me into the next season.  I […]

Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Granada Television Series on Blu-ray

Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Granada Television Series on Blu-ray

Folks do so often rave about Steven Moffat’s series Sherlock, to which I must also admit enormous fondness. And sure enough, Guy Ritchie’s Holmes films did well enough at the box offices worldwide.
