Welcome to my rewatching of the original 79 episodes of the series that launched the franchise. Below are the bulletpointed notes I jotted down while watching “The Devil in the Dark.” On this date in history: The Supremes hit #1 on the US charts with “Love is Here and Now You’re Gone.” Also, Svetlana Allilueva, […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: The Original Series—Season One: Ep. 1.25 “The Devil in the Dark” – (Original air date: Thursday, March 9, 1967)"
The body count for the second season of Ozark is a high one. No less than five main cast members die during the course of the story. Tack on a couple of supporting cast members as well. Of course, I mean their characters died, not the actors themselves. Without being too spoilerific here, this means […]Read more "Let The Bodies Hit The Floor: a Review of Season 2 of Ozark, a Netflix Original"
The television series with the longest episode titles known to man (which still aren’t as long as my own 15-Minute Force titles) has returned for a second season. I liked the first season of Black Lightning. Specifically, I liked that it featured a middle-aged superhero, who happens to be black. I also liked the cast […]Read more "Black Lightning: Season 2 Premiere Episode, “The Book of Consequences-Chapter One: Rise of the Green Light Babies” — a review"
I just completed the main campaign in this video game, and just in time, too. You see, as I’m typing this my birthday is tomorrow. I’ve just about convinced myself that I need my wife to give me the new Spider-Man video game as a gift, but I didn’t have enough storage space on my […]Read more "Mad Max Video Game — a review"
Better Call Saul just might be the best show on television right now. I’ve probably said that about other television series, and, I assure you, I meant it every time. I really mean it this time. Since BCS is a prequel series to AMC’s Breaking Bad, do you have to watch Bad in order to […]Read more "Better Call Saul: Season 4 — a review"
01:00:01 – 01:15:00 We begin Chapter Five of The Last Jedi Edition of the 15-Minute Force wishing we could wash the taste of the previous chapter out of our mouths. I don’t hate this movie. I feel it’s important to say that again. I didn’t love it the way I did The Force Awakens, but […]Read more "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Five: The Stuttering Codebreaker (Or: The Night Ben Solo Flipped Out, Told Rashomon-Style)"
I don’t care about multiplayer mode. In any game. I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. I have played video games since the 1980s. But, I’ve never found a multiplayer experience that I’ve truly enjoyed yet. I’ve raced against other players in racing games, and that was okay. I’ve also had other multiplayer […]Read more "Titanfall 2 — a video game review"
Welcome to my rewatching of the original 79 episodes of the series that launched the franchise. Below are the bulletpointed notes I jotted down while watching “This Side of Paradise.” On this date in history: The Rolling Stones top the US charts with #1 “Ruby Tuesday.” Meanwhile, Englebert Humperdinck rules the UK with “Release Me.” […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: The Original Series—Season One: Ep. 1.24 “This Side of Paradise” – (Original air date: Thursday, March 2, 1967)"
The problem is that we’re comparing apples to apples here. I’m comparing all of the sixth seasons of TNG, DS9, and Voyager to each other. While Season 6 of DS9 was airing, Voyager was on Season 4. The fourth season of Star Trek: Voyager was unequivocally better than the sixth season of DS9. And, since […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: Voyager: Season 6 — a review"
As I am easing into the final season of Star Trek: Deep Space 9, I believe I’ve already crossed the pinnacle of the series in Season 4. It has been the best season of the show so far, I think. I’m withholding judgment (no, I’m not), but it’s unlikely that Season 7 will be better. […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: Deep Space 9: Season 6 — a review"
