The Countdown: Top Ten Kick-ass Female TV Characters

The Countdown: Top Ten Kick-ass Female TV Characters

| August 30, 2016

There’s nothing quite like a strong, intelligent, empowered female character who doesn’t need to be rescued and isn’t defined solely by her need to get a boyfriend.  Someone who not only will keep up with the boys but put them in their place with grace and civility.  Someone who is part of the media world […]

Weiner

| August 23, 2016

During his time in congress, Anthony Weiner (D-NY) was a passionate and vocal advocate for the fair treatment of all Americans, and a loud opponent to bureaucratic incompetence gumming up the works and keeping congress from fulfilling its chief purpose: serving the people who elected them to be there.  He was blunt, candid, informal, unconventional, […]

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

| August 22, 2016

[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 […]

This week on The Countdown: Movie and TV Reviews podcast, Paul and Wayne are talking about their top ten movies set before the 20th century, so I naturally tweeted them that the best one was Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.  It takes place a long LONG time ago after all and I […]

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

| August 16, 2016

When The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension bombed theatrically in 1984 due to inept marketing, no one could have predicted that the film would somehow overcome this failure to become one of the most beloved and successful of cult films.

Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made

| August 16, 2016

I’ve become fascinated with this particular type of documentary; it’s a film that tells the story of a film that was a nightmare to get made, often resulting in the film never being finished.  You don’t often get to hear these stories, but a few of these have come across my radar in recent memory […]

I’m excited to start this new weekly segment. A few months ago, I started a podcast called Quote Unquote Guilty all about guilty pleasures.  Upon getting some of my friends addicted to podcasting, they too started shows of their own and I compiled us all under a shared network: Word Salad Productions.  Recently, I reached […]
