It bothers me when Gilmore Girls is referred to as a “chick series.” I am an older man (I shuddered a little when I wrote the word “older,” but I guess it’s true), middle-aged only if I live into my 100s, which looks doubtful. While my testosterone levels may be lower than when I was […]Read more "Gilmore Girls: Season 2 — a review"
When the new season of DC superhero shows premiered on the CW this fall, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was the one I was least anticipating. It’s also the one I decided I would stockpile to watch later when the other shows go on hiatus because my roster is full of so many current television […]Read more "DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3: Ep. 3.1 “Aruba-Con” – a review"
00:15:01 – 00:30:00 As our previous chapter of the 15-Minute Force concluded, Anakin Skywalker had just lopped off Count Dooku’s Christopher Lee head at Chancellor Palpatine’s command.

Most of that surge in creativity can be attributed to the fact that I’ve been […]Read more "When the Urge Strikes…"
00:00:00 – 00:15:00 Here I stand, happy to begin the first chapter of the third installment of the prequel trilogy, Revenge of the Sith, and our nineteenth chapter overall. Before I started the 15-Minute Force project, inspired by Alex Robinson and Pete the Retailer’s most excellent Star Wars Minute podcast, I didn’t remember the […]Read more "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter One: Oh, I Have a Bad Feeling About This, Too"
I’ve been an Assassin’s Creed fan since the days when you had to ride a horse for a long, long time to get anywhere. This series, along with a couple of others, opened my mind to vertical spaces in video games and made me a climbing fool. I’ve always enjoyed the historical context of the […]Read more "Assassin’s Creed Origins — trailer"
