Following StarVista’s wholly unsurprising success with their 2013 releases of The Carol Burnett Show: Carol’s Favorites and The Carol Burnett Show: This Time Together on DVD, they’re poised to replicate that success once more with the third of their 6-disc Carol Burnett Show releases: Carol’s Crack Ups. When it comes to nostalgic television, I don’t […]

In the wake of Charlie Sheen’s nervous breakdown and being fired from his popular sitcom Two and a Half Men, FX decided to capitalize on this different type of fame by putting Sheen back on the air as an anger management counselor having a casual affair with fellow counselor Kate (Selma Blair; Cruel Intentions) and […]

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

| April 2, 2014 | 0 Comments

Broadchurch came to my attention for the same reason many of our readers were no doubt drawn to it: the presence of long-time Doctor Who star, David Tennant, in the series’ lead role. Yet I soon learned the series co-starred fellow Doctor Who alum, Arthur Darvill, and was written and created by Chris Chibnall, who […]

Monsters: The Complete Series

| March 19, 2014 | 0 Comments

Each episode of Monsters opens with an unconventional and highly meta title sequence: from an establishing shot of the Earth on high, we pull in through the atmosphere on to a suburban neighborhood, and then move in closer still toward an average suburban home. The family residing there, we discover, is not unlike that of […]

Legit – Season 1

| March 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

Legit is very much at home on the FX network.  Fans of their other original programming will quickly spot similarities to shows like Louie and Maron as all three series center on the everyday life of a stand-up comedian.  Here, our comedian is raunchy Australian Jim Jefferies, who I personally had never heard of until […]

Robotics;Notes Part One Review

Robotics;Notes Part One Review

| March 5, 2014 | 0 Comments

With there being so many TV series and films to compete with my time, I still find it extremely valuable when something uses slow pacing to tell a solid story. While I certainly enjoyed the previous “Science Adventure Series”, Steins;Gate, Production I.G’s animated rendition of 5bp. and Nitroplus’ Robotics;Notes is hands down one of the […]

Game of Thrones: Season Three

| February 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

While every single season of Game of Thrones has been a tumultuous ride, nothing could really prepare anyone for Season 3. Interesting character development for various characters that we hated, we began to love or understand what makes them tick. The political aspects and intricacies grew deeper and the bloodshed more brutal in HBO’s fantasy […]

While it can be extremely difficult to find the words to emphasize how great a show is to an unknowing audience, especially after writing a bunch of reviews for it, I somehow still find the means to write about how amazing One Piece is. After wrapping up a major battle at Enies Lobby in the […]
