Longtime pop-punk act New Found Glory came to Boston’s House of Blues last month, headlining a show of favorites from the alternative/punk scene. The New York-based punk act, H2O, opened the show with a shorter, fast-paced set, which set the energy level for the night. Alkaline Trio came next. Around since 1996, the band has(…)

There used to be a time when having a cell phone was a luxury, rather than the absolute necessity that it is today. People expect to be able to get hold of us at any time. We message our friends, tweet incessantly, and follow our favorite celebrities. A cell phone is no longer just a(…)
Spike’s video game awards (VGX) commenced this past Saturday (12/7) covering a wide range of important categories in the video game industry.

Some of the hardest decisions in gaming are taken in this list. You have been warned.
I didn’t think the show had it in them but they genuinely pulled the rug straight out from under me with the last five minutes of the episode. Not to say that the remaining portion of the episode wasn’t fantastic, it was, but I’ll get to that in a second. It may come as no(…)
Things start getting serious.
I don’t generally put spoiler warnings in front of my TV reviews. Maybe I should, but honestly, if you’re looking up Supernatural reviews you should probably be prepared for spoilers. However, I’m going to put one here. If you don’t want to find out about the horrible and very significant thing that happens at the(…)

Running through Acre and driving through Algonquin.
Oh what an utterly lackluster episode. If I hadn’t jotted down some notes I doubt I would have been able to retell what had happened in any type of concise or interesting manner, maybe because the episode seemed unwilling to write its narrative in a concise or interesting manner. I would have been able to(…)
We all know the pain that comes with the cancellation of a favorite T.V. show. The bemoaning of such cult hits as Firefly and Twin Peaks is almost more ferocious than the fandom of shows that last decades. But, for every unresolved plot line, every unfinished rivalry, and every unrealized love, there are the shows(…)
The Blacklist concluded the front half of its first season with an episode that didn’t quite reach the level of excellence its counterpart did last week, but was still an exciting conclusion to the Anslo Garrick arc. We got an answer (maybe?) to a season long mystery and, of course, got a few more questions to(…)
We salute you, Paul Walker. You made cars cool for a new generation, despite never getting the credit you deserved as an actor. Your smile, eyes, and six-pack will never be forgotten sure, but you were in more than just “Fast and Furious” flicks. Here are our five favorites. 5. Joy Ride (2001), I was(…)

Where to begin? Some shows, especially in the perilous freshman year, tend to dip as the season goes on. The Blacklist is certainly not one of those. This week’s episode, part one of a two-parter called “Anslo Garrick,” was by far the show’s strongest hour. Why? Well, frankly, because everything was perfect. The plot was(…)
Too Far Gone was one of the most absorbing episodes of The Walking Dead I’ve seen to date. It was fast-paced, it was action-packed, and I loved it. I haven’t literally shouted at my television since we saw the Red Wedding go down on Game of Thrones, and I think it’s a good thing when(…)
