I just finished watching Marvel’s The Defenders. Should I add “Season 1” to this, as if it’s a foregone conclusion that there will be more? Yeah, maybe I should. The Defenders are a timeworn staple in the Marvel Universe, and it’s doubtful that we won’t see a second season, at least. The Defenders are the […]Read more "Marvel’s The Defenders"
Have I ever mentioned that I am a fan of the BBC show Sherlock? Yes, I have. Because I am. And that fandom carries over into Series 4 of the program, which I just finished watching. This is great television. If you haven’t watched it yet, then why the hell not? Go ahead and watch […]Read more "Sherlock: Series 4: a review"
The second season of iZombie was a lot of fun to watch. This post is full of SPOILERS. You have been warned. The season opens with the fallout from the freshman season. Liv’s mother and brother are both upset with her because she wouldn’t donate her Type O-Negative blood to save her brother after the […]Read more "iZombie: Season 2: a review"
My second viewing of Season One of Star Trek: The Next Generation was an eye-opening experience. Simply put: it was crap. Hey, I’m as big a TNG apologist as anyone, and, while I accept that there were many events in the first season that remain important to the mythos of TNG, such as Tasha Yar’s […]Read more "Boldly Going: Star Trek:TNG: Season 2: a review"
Season 7 of Sons of Anarchy was the final season of the series. And, it was a doozy. As always, this review contains massive SPOILERS, so don’t let me ruin anything for you if you ever plan to watch this series. Which, by the way, I recommend that you do watch. Just don’t get into […]Read more "Sons of Anarchy: Season 7: a review"
Netflix would have me believe that there were four episodes in Series 3 of the wonderful BBC program Sherlock. IMDb lists “The Abominable Bride” as episode zero of the fourth series, while Netflix says it’s the fourth episode of the third. The truth is that “Bride” was broadcast two years after the episodes of Series […]Read more "Sherlock: Series 3: a review"
Uh…yeah, SPOILERS AHEAD. Please don’t read this if you haven’t seen Sons of Anarchy: Season 6 yet, or if you think you might ever want to do so. As I write this little review of the season, I’ve just finished watching the last episode of the season, episode number 13, “A Mother’s Work.” I have […]Read more "Sons of Anarchy: Season 6: a review"
I originally stopped watching Sons of Anarchy early in the fourth season. I’m not really sure why. I always liked the show. I do know that I wasn’t over-the-moon about the third season and all the stuff about Jax’s kid getting kidnapped by the IRA, but there was still plenty of stuff that I liked […]Read more "Sons of Anarchy: Season 5: a review"
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Episode 2.9 “The Measure of a Man” is the first perfect episode of TNG that I’ve watched. This comes on the heels of Episode 2.8 “A Matter of Honor” which I considered the first “very good” episode. I’ve been grading these episodes on a 5-point scale as I’ve watched them. […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: the Next Generation: Episode 2.9 “The Measure of a Man”"
Season 3 of the FX television show Fargo initially captured my attention as swiftly as the previous two seasons. The viewer was presented with a “true” crime story about a sibling rivalry that results in multiple deaths. The first episode was a great example of the masterful storytelling we had already experienced during the first […]Read more "Fargo, Season 3: You Can’t Win ‘Em All"
