Helix Season 2: WTF?

Finished the second (and last) season of Helix and I have no idea what I just watched. Don’t get me wrong, season 1 had quite a bit of WTF going for it as well. I mentioned as much in my review a couple of weeks ago. But it had a degree of intrigue that had […]

TV Review: Helix Season 1

Just finished watching season 1 of Helix — all 13 episodes in under a week. It definitely had me intrigued, and kept me guessing! Just when I thought I knew what the show was about, something changed and I once again had no clue. Which makes it hard to leave a review! Let me start […]

TV Series Review: Z Nation

  Just finished watching seasons 1 & 2 (all that is currently available) on Netflix and … I liked it! I should probably preface this by saying that I’m not really into zombies. They make no sense.

TV Review: Orange is the New Black Season 3

So I just finished season 3 of Orange is the New Black and … it had its ups and downs. On the plus side, it developed a lot of minor characters in interesting ways. I liked the new corporate ownership, and how that effected things at the prison. But Piper … the woman who started […]

The Omniscient Narrator Must Flow

  The fully omniscient narrator who sees all and knows all is out of style these days, but the perspective is rooted in a proud, long-standing history of classic literature. A fully omniscient narrator has no limits and no boundaries – you can use him freely not just to jump from one person’s thoughts to […]
