After reading dozens of reviews of “Old Wounds,” the pilot episode of Fox’s The Orville, I revisited my own review. I had been afraid that I had been too harsh. Compared to many that I read, my review was a glowing one. I hope that MacFarlane and his cast don’t read the reviews. Nothing breeds […]Read more "The Orville Revisited: Episode 1.2 “Command Performance”"
Now I’m current on the CW show iZombie. I just finished watching the third season on Netflix, with no further episodes to watch until Season 4 begins. Next year, I’d imagine. This season, only thirteen episodes, was more of what I’ve come to expect from promising-young-surgeon-turned-zombie-medical-examiner Liv Moore and her friends. Murder-of-the-week solved when Liv […]Read more "iZombie: Season 3: a review"
1:30:01 – 1:45:00 This chapter of the movie begins with everyone’s favorite pasttime: Political maneuvering. Chancellor Palpatine is meeting with a group that includes Mace Windu, Senator Bail Organa, and Jar Jar Binks. The consensus seems to be that they are in a crisis. It’s obvious that Count Dooku and the Trade Federation, […]Read more "Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Seven: Count Dooku Makes A Few Good Points.

Enterprise gets a bad rap sometimes. It was the only post-TOS series (so far) to make it less than seven seasons. Here, at the end of the second season, I’m already more than halfway through the series’ entire 98 episodes. Here’s the thing, though. It’s not a bad show. So far, I’ve enjoyed the special […]Read more "|||Boldly Going||| Star Trek:Enterprise: Season 2: a review"
As the first season of AMC’s Preacher ended, it seemed that the show’s trinity—Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy—were leaving a prologue and driving straight into the road-trip world of the Garth Ennis/Steve Dillon source material comic book. Season One managed to work in many important events from the comic, but it did so in a […]Read more "Preacher: Season 2: a review"
Neelix and Kes are my least favorite characters on Voyager. I just wanted to put that out there right at the beginning of this review of the second season. I’ll admit that this is a purely subjective thing, but any time that either of these characters spends too much time on-screen, my enjoyment of this […]Read more "|||Boldly Going||| Star Trek: Voyager: Season 2: a review"
I just watched the first episode of Seth MacFarlane’s new science-fiction comedy The Orville. It wasn’t exactly what I expected. I was expecting a spoof of Star Trek (with perhaps some Star Wars and other science fiction properties thrown into the mix) along the lines of Galaxy Quest or Spaceballs. Or, maybe, something like Hitchhiker’s […]Read more "The Orville: Pilot Episode “Old Wounds”: a review"
