Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In: The Complete Series

| June 19, 2017

Time Life’s home video release of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In: The Complete Series is one of the most delightfully formidable collections I’ve ever dipped into—a bit of a contradiction, I know, but hopefully you’ll see what I mean soon enough. Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In ran for 140 episodes from 1968 to 1973 and Time Life […]

Archie’s Weird Mysteries: The Complete Series

| June 13, 2017

If you happen to like both Archie Comics and old B-movies, then the 1999-2000 animated series Archie’s Weird Mysteries is clearly for you. Sure, that’s an oddly specific demographic, but I found myself drawn to it, as I somehow met both these criteria. Admittedly, my interest in Archie Comics did not persist much following my […]

Twin Peaks: The Return Part 5 (MINOR SPOILERS)

| June 6, 2017

There are thirteen episodes left of Twin Peaks: The Return, and it’s safe to say that David Lynch and Mark Frost are taking their sweet, sweet time. Typically, thirteen episodes would provide plenty of time for a television show to wrap up any runaway plot threads. But Twin Peaks is not just any show, and […]

Twin Peaks: The Return Parts 3 & 4 (MINOR SPOILERS)

| May 30, 2017

If Parts 1 and 2 of Twin Peaks: The Return were a relentless slog through the new nightmare world that is Twin Peaks, Parts 3 and 4 are our reward for sticking through so much pain and confusion. All of the comedy that the first two episodes lack can be found in Parts 3 and […]

My relationship with CW’s Arrowverse has been an admittedly tumultuous one. I’ve gone back and forth on Arrow since it debuted, giving up on it entirely somewhere near the end of the first season and then returning following the premiere of The Flash. I’ve found DC’s Legends of Tomorrow to be an incredible lot of […]

Twin Peaks: The Return Parts 1 & 2 (MINOR SPOILERS)

David Lynch is not known to be a man of mercy. His work is unrelenting and impossibly difficult, and he refuses to explain anything. So when episode 1 of the long-awaited Twin Peaks: The Return began with a scene from the original series, I braced myself for a Fire Walk with Me-style screen-shattering surprise. It […]

I know what you’re thinking.  How can an AT&T original series be anything but amazing?  Or maybe you’re thinking that you didn’t know AT&T made original programming.  I sure didn’t know.  It raises a lot of questions for me in terms of where this airs?  On AT&T DVR boxes exclusively?  Has anyone ever seen this […]

I really wanted to dislike this movie.  As a form of promotion, the director (Onur Tukel) along with co-stars Anne Heche and Sandra Oh went on a podcast I’ve been listening to for years called Doug Loves Movies, where comedian Doug Benson (Friends) invites guests on to talk about movies and play games in front […]
