Banshee – Season 3

Banshee – Season 3

| April 4, 2016

I haven’t checked out either of the first two seasons of Cinemax’s Banshee, but surprisingly had very little difficulty slipping into the third season and keeping up with what’s going on.  After the first scene, which sees the officers of the Banshee police department seeking vengeance for their fallen comrade in the previous season, everything […]

Game of Thrones: The Complete Fifth Season

Game of Thrones: The Complete Fifth Season

| March 12, 2016

*This review will contain some minor spoilers for Game of Thrones. Read at your own discretion. “There is only one war. Life against death”, an utterance by the Red Priestess, Melisandre, in this past season of Game of Thrones and yet this idea echoes through the entirety of the TV show thus far. The series […]

Fargo: Year Two

Fargo: Year Two

| March 1, 2016

In the 1950’s, the American film industry was frightened to their very core. No, it wasn’t from the looming possibility of Communist takeover. The fear was over the newfangled invention known as the television. Television, or TV, was a device that allowed people the luxury of watching moving images from the comfort of their homes. […]

Girls: Season Four

Girls: Season Four

| February 16, 2016

HBO’s Girls is one of those shows (and it’s probably the MOST one of those shows) that divides people, which means ALL of those people are watching it and talking about it. Minor controversy has arisen over its seasons about everything from its racially in-diverse cast to its zeitgeist ponderousness, to straight up accusations of […]

The Wonder Years: The Complete Fourth Season

The Wonder Years: The Complete Fourth Season

| January 26, 2016

Life is a never ending series of transitions. From birth, to childhood, through adolescence, the move to adulthood, and finally death, humans are constantly transitioning. No television series better exemplified this ongoing transition better than The Wonder Years. And their fourth season was the absolute peak of the rough nature of transition. People Magazine gave […]

Power Rangers Dino Charge: Unleashed

Power Rangers Dino Charge: Unleashed

| January 17, 2016

Power Rangers Dino Charge: Unleashed collects the first four episodes of Power Rangers’ 22nd season, and is now available on home video from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. With these episodes, Dino Charge is off to a promising start, and let me tell you, that’s an incredible relief! After all, I’ve previously posted a lot of words […]

Mobile Suit Gundam Collection One

Mobile Suit Gundam Collection One

| November 30, 2015

Much to what I said in my Turn A Gundam review, the Gundam franchise is a massive undertaking, which has never managed to penetrate the American audience properly. Sure, the Gundam Wing franchise has a nostalgic following, due to the Toonami TV runs, but both Bandai Entertainment and Sunrise never managed to get people to […]

Stephen King’s Sometimes They Come Back…

Stephen King’s Sometimes They Come Back…

| November 3, 2015

It’s no secret that I love made-for-TV movies. Hell, I wrote my Masters thesis on the subject! What can I say, there’s just something about the format that speaks to me. Maybe it’s that I grew up watching so many of them—fixed to the TV as I was—that I’m programmed for these things. And yet […]

The Great American Dream Machine

The Great American Dream Machine

| November 2, 2015

If I were to tell you that no one makes television like The Great American Dream Machine (PBS, 1971-1972) any more, that’d be accurate. However, it would also be gross understatement. No one has ever made television like The Great American Dream Machine! I’d never so much as heard of the series until it was […]

Mr. Warmth! Don Rickles: The Ultimate Collection

| October 22, 2015

Don Rickles is one of the greatest minds in comedy, and I don’t mean just in his own time or even “back in the day,” but then, now and always. He is one of the greatest. I previously raved about Don Rickles’ work in my review of The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes, but […]
