I almost didn’t write this review. I’ve made a big deal in the past about how I rarely write unfavorable reviews. It’s not that I don’t make entertainment choices that I later regret. I do. I don’t like every book or comic that I read. I certainly don’t like every movie or television series that […]Read more "Days Gone — a video game review"
At the conclusion of Season 8 of AMC’s The Walking Dead, I announced—in typical, over-dramatic fashion—that I was stepping away from the television series for a while. Actually, I may have said that I was done with the series, implying that this was a permanent type of situation. It had become popular to threaten to […]Read more "The Walking Dead: Compendium Four, by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Stefano Gaudiano & Cliff Rathburn — a review"
I purchased this compendium at least six years ago. I was still working for the Target Corporation; I know that. It was published in 2012. So, somewhere between six and eight years ago. I bought the first compendium at the same time, and I read through that one a while back. Before I began posting […]Read more "The Walking Dead: Compendium Two, by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard & Cliff Rathburn — a comic book 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 […]Read more "iZombie: Season 5 — a review"
I guess the lead for this review is that Santa Clarita Diet has been cancelled by Netflix, and, apparently, we won’t get a Season 4. If the story were finished, I’d feel better about the cancellation. I wouldn’t feel great, because I’ve liked this series. But, I’d feel better. I like serialized story telling. […]Read more "Santa Clarita Diet: Season 3 — a review"
I was already a Santa Clarita fan after watching Season 1. More to the point, I was a fan of Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore as Joel and Sheila Hammond, a realtor couple in Santa Clarita, California, trying to retain some sense of normalcy to their lives after Sheila becomes a walking, talking member of […]Read more "Santa Clarita Diet: Season 2 — a 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"
Let’s start with the good news: iZombie has been renewed for a fifth season. Now, of course, the bad: Season 5 will be the last for the series. As far as we know. I mean, right now. It could be picked up by another major network, or Amazon or Netflix or . . . […]Read more "iZombie: Season 4 – review"
It’s become fashionable to threaten to stop watching The Walking Dead. I just watched the Season 8 finale, Episode 8.16 “Wrath.” And, now, I’m done. The show is coming back for a ninth season next year, but I won’t be watching. Let me tell you why. It’s not all bad stuff. In fact, the […]Read more "The Walking Dead: Season 8 – a review"
After seeing the title to this episode, I was certain it would have a football theme. I was disappointed that the fourth season of iZombie premiered so long after the NFL season was over, though. This would have been a great show to watch while we were getting ready to watch Tom Brady lose the […]Read more "iZombie: Season 4 Premiere: “Are You Ready For Some Zombies?”"
