00:45:01 – 01:00:00 Lt. DiAngelo, the chief geologist on board the 15-Minute Federation (who’s never been seen by anyone before this fateful day), went on his first away mission with our Holy Trinity: Captain Firewater, Commander Spork and Dr. “Ribcage” Macklemore.

Krypton: Season 2 — a review

I very nearly washed my hands of this series early during the second season. I’ll explain why, and then let you know why I didn’t. I enjoyed Season 1 of Krypton, which did a deep dive into Superman’s science fiction roots by focusing on Kal-El’s grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), beginning at a time before Jor-El, […]

Legion: Season 3 — a review

Are you in the mood for something different? Well, this series definitely fits that bill. I finished the third (and final) season of Legion in much the same frame of mind as the first two: mesmerized with the imagery and mind-blowing effects; dazzled by the unconventional storytelling that seemingly breaks all of the rules; impressed […]

iZombie: Season 5 — a review

  I’m writing this review (or at least this first sentence) just moments after watching the season, and series, finale of the CW’s iZombie, “All’s Well that Ends Well.” Even before I watched the episode I thought this was a bold choice for an episode title. I mean, what if it didn’t end well? Series […]
