Black Dynamite: Season One

Black Dynamite: Season One

| July 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

Adapting a film to a television series is always a tricky proposition. When the film in question is a beloved cult favorite–such as Black Dynamite, the 2009 film that did for 70s Blaxploitation what Wet Hot American Summer did for early-80s Summer Camp movies–pulling off an effective series becomes even more difficult. What is it […]

Mostly I want to take this opportunity to weigh in on this series, which has become a cultural phenomenon over the last couple of years.  I have been sporadically exposed to the series recently because I have friends who watch it and my parents are fans, and while I do find the show to be […]

Regular Show: The Complete Third Season

Regular Show: The Complete Third Season

Regular Show is a series that kids love—mine sure does anyway.  Sure, it’s a show about a blue jay and a raccoon who work at a park for a gumball machine man, but most of the humor is honestly going to hit the grown-ups in the audience much harder than it will the children, especially […]

Power Rangers Megaforce: Ultra Defenders

Looking back on my review of the first DVD volume of Power Rangers Megaforce, my frustrations with this particular iteration of Power Rangers are obvious and, I think, understandable. In a series like Power Rangers that shifts characters and narrative focus every season or two, the producers should really strive to raise the stakes from […]

I’ve started and restarted this review ten times or more and I just can’t seem to find the right words to describe how profoundly personally moving I found Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey to be. I could tell you I learned a lot from it or that it left me in tears, but you’d then only […]

From its original commercial teasers, highlighting its main cast, to garnering the talent behind Sin Nombre and 2011′s Jane Eyre, was more then enough to be excited for HBO’s True Detective. Once it began airing on TV, after the first episode, people knew that this was something special, making True Detective an instant classic, that […]

Attack on Titan: Part 1

Every so often, an anime comes along that renews people’s interest in the form, one you absolutely have to share with everyone you know. We’re talking gateway stuff, anime that leads newcomers who had maybe only seen Akira and Dragon Ball Z to suddenly build enormous anime collections in a ridiculously short span of time. […]

With an exciting mix of humor, action and suspense, the CBS western, Cimarron Strip, centers on the exploits of U.S. Marshal Jim Crown, assigned to keep order in the Oklahoma panhandle town of Cimarron. What sets Cimarron Strip apart from other series like it, save for The Virginian (1962-71), is that it boasts feature-length episodes, […]

Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time is one of the most consistently exciting and thoroughly cartoons I’ve ever seen, and one with a highly active and well-deserved fan following at that. You simply never know what to expect when you sit down for an episode of Adventure Time. Whether it be the appearance of otherworldly creatures that […]

You can get all the second season episodes to watch at home whenever you need an escape from the craziness of today’s society. While watching, one of the first things I noticed was that […]
