The Story of God with Morgan Freeman

The Story of God with Morgan Freeman

| January 10, 2017

Both books of the Bible are basically a few exciting stories scattered amongst a bunch of repetitive filler and overstated pronouncements. If the producers of The Story of God set out to emulate the Bible in that way, then they were incredibly successful. That’s not to say that the series is unwatchable or not worth […]

2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs

2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs

| December 13, 2016

Every year, Major League Baseball Productions releases a home media collector’s set of that year’s World Series champions. However, the 2016 release is a little more special than the others. No offense to the other World Series champs of recent memory, but the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series was more historic and epic. Not […]

Looking: The Complete Series and Movie

Looking: The Complete Series and Movie

| December 9, 2016

Given that Looking only ran for two seasons, I guess I’m not surprised I haven’t heard of it.  Many of HBO’s TV series are cultural phenomenon so it’s rare for them to have a dud that comes and goes without having any impact whatsoever.  This is why I tend to keep an eye out for […]

Game of Thrones: Season Six Blu-Ray

Game of Thrones: Season Six Blu-Ray

| November 14, 2016

Game of Thrones has rightfully made TV history in the six seasons that it has been on the air for HBO. While both Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter have gotten people into the fantasy genre, it has been this legendary series created by George R.R. Martin that has converted many into the robustness […]

The IT Crowd: The Complete Series

The IT Crowd: The Complete Series

| November 11, 2016

For four seasons, The IT Crowd delivered consistently hilarious and surreal comedy for fans.  The series centers around two I.T. Professionals at a massive corporation in London: Roy (Chris O’Dowd; Bridesmaids) and Moss (Richard Ayoade; The Double).  The boys are completely content to laze around and play video games in between berating the employees of […]

Hell on Wheels: Season 5: Part 2

Hell on Wheels: Season 5: Part 2

| November 7, 2016

I’ve been fortunate over the past few years to catch some of Hell on Wheels to review for this site and with it coming to an end, and me seeing somewhat where it’s going in the end, I think it may be time to start at the beginning of the series on Netflix and just […]

Banshee: The Final Season

Banshee: The Final Season

| October 5, 2016

We hardly knew ye, Banshee – gone in only 4 short seasons.  I also reviewed season 3 of this series for filmmonthly having not seen the first two seasons, but found it incredibly easy to catch up on what was going on.  It was as if the creators knew no one was watching and had […]

The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series

The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series

| September 25, 2016

It’s safe to say that no name in late night television is as well-known and respected as Johnny Carson. Carson hosted The Tonight Show for nearly 30 years before handing over the reins to Jay Leno in 1992, leaving the television landscape forever changed by his standard. On October 4th, 2016, Time Life releases four […]

Supernatural: Season 11

Supernatural: Season 11

| September 5, 2016

To be honest, I’d never seen an episode of CW’s hit paranormal thriller Supernatural until I got the eleventh season in the mail to review.  My brother is a longtime fan of the series and has admitted to me that he only has kept watching out of morbid curiosity to see how things wrap up.  […]

The Flash: The Complete Second Season

The Flash: The Complete Second Season

| September 2, 2016

[Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a copy of the Blu-ray collection I reviewed in this post. That said, the opinions I share below are my own.] Following the defeat of Reverse-Flash in the season one of The Flash, things have somehow only gotten worse in Central City. The singularity opened up by Barry […]
