I’ve loved the X-Men since I was about ten. Movies, comic books, novels, tie-ins, toys, all the way up to the latest movies, I’m about it. So, my first reaction when I heard about The Gifted was to wonder if they would have anything new to say. They don’t necessarily have to, the first X-Men movie was 17…… Continue reading I’ve been watching The Gifted and I have thoughts.
First, “Face the Raven.” It was a bit rushed, but they pulled off the death scene, which seems to have been the only real significance of this episode. (“Lady Me is selling you to some aliens” would’ve fit in an opening scene.) The death scene, though. I’m not gonna lie, I cried, and I resent it…… Continue reading Doctor Who Review: Face the Raven, Heaven Sent, and Hell Bent
When doing weekly reviews, it’s easy to fall into a “the show is only as good as its last episode” mentality. In this case, “The Magician’s Apprentice” is a pretty good episode, but I want to hold off on mega-excitement and see where the season is going. They bring out all the stops for this…… Continue reading Doctor Who Review: The Magician’s Apprentice

I’ve finally finished Arrow season 1. The finale was full of people being incredibly stupid, but yes, I will get caught up…… Continue reading The Sunday Post – Superhero TV
I guess we’d better talk about the Doctor Who Christmas special. Major spoilers. There’s a lot to like here. We’ve had some stinkers of Christmas specials, and frankly I get sick of Christmas if I’m rewatching the new series because it’s Christmas every eight episodes or so. I liked this one, though, because it felt very much…… Continue reading Doctor Who Review: “Last Christmas”
“Flatline” was a pretty normal “freaky idea of the week” type of Doctor Who episode, but channeling Flatland. The monsters are two-dimensional. It’s a creative idea, but… meh. Maybe my undying love of Flatland is to blame, but it was kind of disappointing. Episodes (and horror-ish sci-fi movies) like this are always a let-down for me,…… Continue reading Doctor Who Review: “Flatline”
The Feathered Serpent was a two-season British TV show that originally aired in 1976. It’s a political intrigue story set in Aztec Mexico and starring the brilliant Patrick Troughton as Nasca, the evil high priest of a new, bloody religion. In contrast, the Aztec emperor favors peace, an alliance with a rich and cultured tribe, and…… Continue reading Review: The Feathered Serpent
