Neelix and Kes are my least favorite characters on Voyager. I just wanted to put that out there right at the beginning of this review of the second season. I’ll admit that this is a purely subjective thing, but any time that either of these characters spends too much time on-screen, my enjoyment of this […]Read more "|||Boldly Going||| Star Trek: Voyager: Season 2: a review"
A little over 4 months ago–on May 7, to be exact– I posted my review of the first seasons of all the Star Trek series following the original (and the animated series). The second season of DS9 had 26 episodes, and my plan was to watch one episode per week, so it seems I […]Read more "Boldly Going: Deep Space Nine: Season 2: a review"
This is a “surprise” review because Transparent was not a television series that I expected to be watching. At least, not watching anytime soon; perhaps ever. Don’t misinterpret what I’m saying, please. It has nothing to do with the subject matter. While it’s true that I don’t have an overwhelming interest in transgender studies, that […]Read more "Transparent: Season 1: a surprise review"
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"
