Junjo Romantica: Season 1

| July 11, 2017

In 2008, the staff at Studio Deen, the producers of such anime series as Rurouni Kenshin (1997-1998) and Fruits Basket (2001), adapted Shungiku Nakamura’s “Boys’ Love” manga, Junjo Romantica, into a 24-episode anime. As a Boys’ Love series, Junjo focuses specifically on interconnected homosexual relationships among six Tokyo men. With a perfect balance of comedy […]

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

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 […]

Vixen: The Movie

| May 23, 2017

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 […]

Ice: Season One

| May 18, 2017

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 […]

Catfight

Catfight

| April 24, 2017

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 […]

Mars

Mars

| April 19, 2017

Capitalizing on the massive success of Ridley Scott’s The Martian from a couple of years ago, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard bring you Mars, a TV mini-series event about the first manned mission to Mars in the year 2033. The series is really unlike anything I’ve ever seen.  Part of it is a documentary, taking […]

The Carol Burnett Show: The Best of Tim Conway

| March 31, 2017

If you had asked me as a child why I watched The Carol Burnett show in perpetual reruns, I would have responded with two words: Tim Conway. Sure, I’ve many fond memories of sketches featuring Burnett herself, as well as Vicki Lawrence, Harvey Korman, and Lyle Waggoner. I mean, where Lawrence is concerned, those of […]
