TV Series: The 100

Listen up post-apocalyptic scifi fans, because this may be a great new show for you! I just finished watching the entire first season in one go (available on Netflix Instant Viewing) and after a rocky start, I am a fan. The premise is this: Almost a hundred years ago there was a nuclear war. A […]

TV Review: Jane the Virgin

Let me start by saying that this is not the sort of thing I normally watch. I do enjoy romance in books, but rarely in TV or movies, and my impression when I saw this recommended by TV Guide was that I’d watch the first episode, dismiss it as crap, and move on with my […]

Is The Doctor Dead?

Should I even be watching this show? Well there it is. The bottom line. Folks, I have come to a sad point in my Doctor Who Fandom — the point at which I must seriously consider giving it up. I’ve been a new series fan from the beginning. I literally dreamed of David Tennant returning […]

TV Review: Orange is the New Black Season 1

A unique, dramatic, and entertaining show! I’ve been hearing about “Orange is the New Black” for a while now but I’m often slow to pick up on new shows, especially when they’re “out of genre” for me (science fiction and fantasy). But the world is full of entertaining stories and this is certainly one of […]

TV Reivew: Food Fighters

Reason I started muting this show and reading a book until America’s Got Talent came on: The premise is intriguing but ultimately flawed. Here’s how it works: Home chef? Think you can beat one of the best celebrity chefs in […]

TV Series Review: Last Comic Standing

After the best comic on America’s Got Talent got sent home early because she performed on the wrong night (Seriously, first two weeks I was only excited by about 3 acts. Then last week I could easily have seen 8 performers moving on!) I decided to check out a show entirely for comedians — Last […]

Movie Review: X-Men First Class

I finally got a chance to watch X-Men First Class with the family over the weekend (Netflix DVD). I enjoy many of the modern superhero stories being reinvented for the modern age with amazing special effects and more depth of character. I particularly like beginnings, the story of how someone discovered and came to terms […]

TV Review: Game of Thrones Season 3

Season 3 of Game of Thrones brought a few surprises. Season 2 exploded the playing board with six kings south of the wall, and one to the north. This made things a little confusing, but luckily things start to tighten up in season 3. By the end of this season two players are out of the game and another is really no […]
