The word “sitcom” is short for “situation comedy.” Typically, a sitcom will center around a fixed group of characters in a particular situation, or setting. For instance, Cheers was a sitcom that centered around the employees and customers of a Boston bar. News Radio was about characters who worked at a news radio station.

This is a review for the 2017 Wolverine movie directed by James Mangold. There’s another Logan, released in 2010, that’s apparently a Christian action/comedy. I’m sure it is a perfectly good film, but it doesn’t have Hugh Jackman or Patrick Stewart in it. Mangold also directed The Wolverine, a movie I haven’t watched yet, as […]Read more "Logan — a movie review"
The second half of the fourth season of Vikings elevates the season as a whole, even though the story of Ragnar Lothbrok takes some turns here that I don’t really like. Episode 11 “The Outsider” would have come seven months after Ep. 10 back in 2016, which is why these two halves are treated […]Read more "Vikings: Season 4 (Part 2) — a review"
Confession is good for the soul, they say. I’m still not current on Phase 3 of the MCU. I haven’t watched Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (at least, not all of it) or Black Panther yet (ditto). I plan to cross those off the list this month. I also haven’t watched the two MCU […]Read more "Avengers: Infinity War — a movie review"

I saw Man of Steel when it came out in the theaters, and, although I wasn’t the most rabid fan of that movie, I think I liked it more than some did. In fact, I […]Read more "Justice League — a movie review"
I’m late in jumping on this bandwagon. Obviously, since Netflix just dropped the third season of this original series. The only excuse—or, if you prefer, explanation—I can offer is that there must be a limit to the number of television series you watch that somehow feature zombies in them. I had already watched The Walking […]Read more "The Santa Clarita Diet: Season 1 — a review"
I had spinal surgery during the morning of April 4, 2019. I spent three nights at UAMS, a teaching hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas, about thirty-five minutes or so from my driveway when traffic is favorable (which is seldom). Now, I am back home and on the mend. My surgeon fused several thoracic discs that […]Read more "Back Surgery (2019)"
