Arrow: The Climb Wait a Minute…What? (Review)

(2)
December 11, 2014

Arrow: The Climb Wait a Minute…What? (Review) Out of the two DC superhero shows on CW, one of which is not super at all, Arrow is the darker and more tortured and in The Climb the winter finale was dealing with a lot of unanswered questions right up until Queen reaches the top of that… Read More ›

Z Nation Mid Season Finale: Returning in 2015? (Review)

Z Nation Mid Season Finale: Returning in 2015? (Review) Well, it has to be said, that as mid season finale’s go, Z Nation managed to pull out all the stops to leave fans of the SyFy show gasping, and the show’s end credits say they will be returning in 2015. Really? Looking at the last… Read More ›

Ghostquake: Haunted High (2012) TV Movie Rubbish

One of the “advantages” of living overseas is the ability to watch made for TV movies that are disguised as normal feature films. It is probably my own fault. I have a list of things I watch for: favourite directors, favourite actors, and whether the film is a horror film or not. I am a… Read More ›

I Love Kelly Cutrone…

I will sheepishly put my hand up and say that I liked The City; that spin-off of The Hills (that I watched, but did not like as much) that followed wannabe fashionista Whitney Port in her journey to be an image coordinator for Diane Von Furstenburg. After a poor first half season, the show underwent… Read More ›

Smoke, Smoke, Smoke That Cigarette…

Meg and I have been watching the first season DVD collection of Boardwalk Empire. A superior bit of television drama produced by HBO and starring Steve Buscemi, Kelly MacDonald and Michael Shannon. It is set in the 1920’s; that era of flappers, Eddie Cantor, the Charleston, Prohibition and “oh you kid.” It was also a… Read More ›

Snake Oil Salesmen

After my post about the evangelical posers and pretenders I was watching some of the uploaded shopping channels on YouTube from television. I suddenly realized that the ‘sales staff’ for the shopping channels could be the first cousins to the evangelical ‘sales staff’ especially in their method of delivery and the attitude of, ‘I know… Read More ›

Dick Van Dyke to Get Lifetime Award from SAG – Loverly

I grew up on a steady diet of Dick Van Dyke. I watched the eternal re-runs of his brilliant television program The Dick Van Dyke show. At the same time he was on our big screens in various Disney films and not Disney films. I adored the man and his ‘obvious’ talent for comedy. I… Read More ›

Michael J Fox ‘Back’ to Full Time TV

That’s right, Michael J Fox is returning to full time acting after over a decade of doing part-time jaunts on other shows because of his Parkinson’s. He’s going to be doing a show for NBC “based” on his  ‘life’ after being diagnosed with the disease. Michael has gone on record saying that the new drug regimen that… Read More ›

How the Internet Changed the Way We Watch Television

The internet has changed the way that we view television. I first noticed the increased presence of the ‘net’ while Buffy the Vampire Slayer was in its relative infancy of seasons. By the time the series had moved up a gear or two and was entering its third season, my daughter started buying Buffy ‘fan-zines.’… Read More ›

Lost to Lost (2004 – 2010)

I never watched Lost when it was running on the telly. I watched the ‘pilot’ episode and saw that the survivors of the plane crash were on an island and they were, for the most part, immaculate. That sort of put me right out of the moment. A couple of critics mentioned the “unreality” of… Read More ›
