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.

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"
A little over 4 months ago–on May 7, to be exact– I posted my review of the first seasons of all the Star Trek series following the original (and the animated series). The second season of DS9 had 26 episodes, and my plan was to watch one episode per week, so it seems I […]Read more "Boldly Going: Deep Space Nine: Season 2: a review"
