Riverdale: The Complete First Season

Riverdale: The Complete First Season

| August 17, 2017

Despite having over 75 years of Archie Comics to draw upon, the CW’s Riverdale places Archie Andrews (K.J. Apa) and his gang—Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes)—smack dab in the center of a small-town murder mystery. If you’re a fan of watching beautiful twenty-something actors play selfish, stupid, […]

HBO’s Crashing

| August 1, 2017

I’ve been a huge fan of Pete Holmes for many years now.  While he was hosting The Pete Holmes Show, I would often catch the various sketches he would put out on youtube where he plays Batman or Professor X, or a fight promoter in the Street Fighter universe.  His Batman vs. Superman sketch is […]

Big Little Lies

Junjo Romantica: Season 2

Junjo Romantica: Season 2

| August 1, 2017

I wrote in my review of Junjo Romantica: Season 1 how little plot developed in that season outside the courtship of the three primary couples. No outside threats, no antagonists, just six men trying to find workable ways to approach their relationships with one another. We are talking about a Boys’ Love anime with a title […]

Pretty Little Liars: The Complete Seventh and Final Season

| July 31, 2017

Well, it happened. After seven seasons, the Liars finally receive their moment of relief after years of terrorizing from “A.” Or did they? Emily, Allison, Hannah and Spencer have seemingly been through it all. Betrayal. Deceit. Violence. Imprisonment. And all between the ages of 16-25. This obviously left fans wondering: just what tricks do the […]

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

| 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 […]
