[Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a copy of the Blu-ray collection I reviewed in this post. That said, the opinions I share below are my own.] Typically, when you see a superhero team-up on TV, you get two or three heroes at most. And even then, you’re looking at one or two episodes […]

11.22.63

| August 11, 2016

Two things that invariably draw me to a piece of film or television are the inclusion of time travel as a narrative device and the attachment of Stephen King’s name to a project. So it was only a matter of time then (no pun intended, truly) before I marathon-viewed the J.J. Abrams-produced Hulu original event […]

Confirmation

Confirmation

| August 5, 2016

The HBO film Confirmation, which premiered on the network last April, benefits greatly from the time of its release.

Seattle’s favorite med student turned zombie, turned morgue attendant/fake psychic for the police (yeah, I hear how that sounds) returns with a strong second season that does its best to recover from its simply okay season one and even adds a few […]

The Wonder Years: Season Five

Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle: The Complete Season One

| June 14, 2016

American animation studio Filmation produced this serialized adaptation of the Tarzan tales by Edgar Rice Burroughs for CBS beginning in 1976. The series embodies all the most predictable yet charming techniques at Filmation’s disposal including the rotoscoped figures and the oft-recycled sequences of animation that make Filmation cartoons what they are. As someone not well-versed […]
