True Detective – Season 2 Review

September 16, 2015 // 1 Comment

The first season of True Detective was truly lightning in a bottle. You had Matthew McConaughey quoting Nietzsche while making little beer can people, and Woody Harrelson as the perfect befuddled foil to his colleague’s anti-social ramblings. The plot was kind of a muddled mess about a “Spaghetti Monster” figure tied to a group of rich right [...]

Stargate Atlantis – Season Two Review

March 7, 2013 // 0 Comments

It took SG-1 six years, really, before any significant changes were made to the cast when Michael Shanks left the show at the end of season five and was replaced by the Jonas Quinn character. Atlantis started making changes in the second season, and honestly they’d make a change every season thereafter. In a lot of ways, I think it kind of hurt [...]

Tin Man Review

Tin Man is the epic miniseries from the SyFy Channel that took Oz to a new level; it’s a modernized retelling of the story and science fiction intended for teens and adults. When this originally aired on SyFy it was a three night event that was six hours long (and that’s including commercial breaks). There are no commercials on this Blu-ray [...]

March 1, 2013 // 0 Comments

WARNING: Full spoilers for the episode below. After the brutal actions of Crixus and many of the other rebels last week, tensions are still high between Crixus and Spartacus this week. In fact, Spartacus is now doing things without telling Crixus and who can blame him for not fully trusting the mad Gaul? Meanwhile, Caesar is still in the rebel [...]

Spartacus – “Decimation” (3.04) Review

February 22, 2013 // 0 Comments

WARNING: Full spoilers for the episode below. This week’s episode of Spartacus is definitely the best episode of the season thus far. Things really got out of control, and honestly this episode, more than any other, shows how neither side is particularly good. There are people on both sides who appear honorable and decent, but by large both [...]

Stargate SG1: Season 8 Review

February 3, 2013 // 0 Comments

Season eight of Stargate SG-1 was really in the end in a lot of ways. The Gou'ald were defeated, the Replicator's were defeated, and the Jaffa were freed. Was the eighth season any good though? Read the review to find out. [...]
