Primeval: New World

Primeval: New World

| October 26, 2013 | 0 Comments

As a spin-off of the British series, Primeval, this 2012-13 Canadian-British co-production certainly pays homage to its source, but ultimately struck out in its own direction. Set in the same universe, only on the other side of the pond so to speak, Primeval: New World follows a team in Vancouver who endeavor to protect the […]

NIS America is one of the most exciting anime distributors at work today, and not just because their Premium Edition collections are among the most beautiful, display-worthy sets on the market. Anything but predictable, NIS consistently releases anime that pushes the boundaries of what those of us who are accustomed to the North American anime […]

I never really found Gonzo to be all that incredible of a production house, in relation to other anime production companies. I mean sure, they were responsible for things like Blue Sub No. 6 and Hellsing, which I’ve certainly enjoyed, but I always found that their productions always took a nose dive in the later […]

One Piece: Season Five, Voyage Two Review

Without little surprise, One Piece has managed to captivate me once again, with Season Five: Voyage Two, an outing that contains just about everything that one would need to feel at home with a long running shonen series. Need a great backstory for one of the characters, check. How about some recap episodes, check. How […]

Digimon: Seasons 1-4 Collection

After the Pokemon franchise proved itself to be an overwhelming, immediate success in 1996, it’s no surprise that a host of similar, if not outright derivative, franchises would emerge in its wake. Digimon, one such post-Pokemon franchise, premiered in 1997 as a line of pocket pets in the Tamagotchi vein, but would soon spawn an […]

The Guild: Complete Megaset

It’s sitting by my side as I write this: the complete series of The Guild on DVD. Although it’s arguably one of the greatest web series bestowed upon geek culture to date, I’ve honestly some conflicted feelings about receiving the DVD itself. Sure, it brings me great elation to have all six seasons right here […]

You pop in the DVD and as soon as the theme song begins, you’re awash in a sea of nostalgia. Suddenly you’re a kid again and it’s Saturday morning. You’re sitting about three feet away from the TV on your parents’ living room floor in your pajamas, watching cartoons with a bowl of cereal in […]

Robot Chicken: Season 6

The back of the case for Robot Chicken: Season 6 promises “The cybernetic fowl from the adult swim late-night animated bizarre programming block is back with another full season of Emmy Award-winning stop motion comedy insanity!  Twenty colossal, mega-sized quarter-hour episodes!” That sums it up quite nicely. Robot Chicken is one of those shows that […]

Mama’s Family: The Complete Collection

| September 25, 2013 | 1 Comments

It’s easy to see how the sitcom Mama’s Family (1983-1990) appealed to so many viewers that it wound up running for six seasons—with a total of 130 episodes. And it’s not just because it spun off from the wildly popular Carol Burnett Show either. In truth, it’s because Mama’s titular family, the Harpers, are just […]

The League: The Complete Season Four

I’d like to open here with an appeal to all those who have zero interest in sports on behalf of The League. When the series was first recommended to me, the person doing the recommending tried to sell me on it by describing the sitcom as being “about a bunch of guys in a fantasy […]
