• “Game of Thrones” – Breaker of Chains (4.03) episode review

    First, I wish to apologize for this reviewer’s absence last weekend. While I regretted not being part of the madness that was the recap fallout after a certain psychopath king’s death by poison, it seems my reign was sabotaged as well. By that I mean I got pretty sick. I was unable to do much(…)

  • “Orphan Black” – Nature Under Constraint and Vexed (2.01) episode review

    As an unabashed lover of science-fiction and for strong female leads, Orphan Black was an easy recommendation for me. The first season was more fun than it had any right to be with a chameleon of a lead in relative unknown Tatiana Maslany. Despite the fact that the show never quite rose in the ranks(…)

  • More Bad News for Aaron Hernandez in Gun Trafficking Investigation

    Oscar Hernandez Jr. was arrested last night in Florida in relation to a gun trafficking case that spans from Florida to Massachusetts.

  • “Supernatural” – Meta Fiction (9.18) episode review

    Supernatural this week was the perfect example of what sets it apart from other shows, and what, at the end of the day, makes all the sexism, stupidity, and plot repetition worth sitting through. It has a bravery and a creativity to it, and with that a lack of inhibition when it comes to going(…)

  • “The Mindy Project” – Think Like A Peter (2.19) episode review

    Since returning from a hiatus which seemed to go on forever, The Mindy Project has done nothing but excel in quality episodes. The storylines are good, the dialogue is clever, and the character development is strengthening. However, tonight’s episode “Think Like A Peter” left me feeling very irritated with a certain main character. Danny Castellano,(…)

“New Girl” – Big News (3.21) episode review 1

When we were last with our New Girl  crew Jess and Nick had just gone through a painfully realistic break-up. They had realized, albeit abruptly, that they had nothing in common aside from how much they love each other and that could only spell disaster later down the road. So, to avoid a failing relationship(…)

Porter Robinson Releases “Sea of Voices” Off His New Album “Worlds” 0

After a recent seemingly phony leak of Porter Robinson’s upcoming album “Worlds”, Porter has released a new song called “Sea of Voices” on his soundcloud. This song is very different from Porter’s previous complextro/electro house work – he has moved to a more melodic and progressive sound. Check out the new song on Soundcloud and(…)

Gaming Really Is Making You Thick… Brained! 0

Mention video games to a parent and you’re likely to hear something along the lines of it warping children’s brains, desensitising them, and making them fat; except the Wii of course, you can bowl on that! But whilst consoling may be making generations a little bit thicker set, research has shown it could also be(…)

“Elementary” – No Lack of Void (2×20) episode review 1

“At me too someone’s looking, of me too someone is saying. He is sleeping, he knows nothing, let him sleep on.” – Waiting for Godot The way in which Elementary has dealt with telling the story of an addict is impressive—it’s one of the reasons why the show first caught my attention so early on.(…)

“Game of Thrones” – Two Swords season premiere review 1

As bleak as the world of Westeros seems, this episode DOES end with hope on the horizon. While Arya’s dark grimace as she rides her white horse is troubling (and she has become the poster child for PTSD), the Stark sword is reborn through her “Needle.” Currently, the scorecard favors the Lannisters. But mostly because(…)

The Elder Scrolls Online: Early Access Impressions 0

It wasn’t until I got off the boat at Davon’s Watch that I realized how far I had come. In an attempt to become fully immersed in the universe, I have always played as a Dark Elf in the Elder Scrolls games and, despite the centuries in between the respective storylines, I imagined them all(…)

“Elementary”- The Many Mouths of Andrew Colville (2.19) episode review 0

Sometimes you have to suspend your level of disbelief just enough in order to enjoy an episode of television. It’s something I have a deft skill set for as I spend much of my movie going hours watching stories about super-powered men and women in garish costumes saving the world from over the top, flamboyant(…)

5 reasons why the How I Met Your Mother finale was perfection 0

Once, a very long time ago, I was an avid How I Met Your Mother fan. I loved the premise of the show, the actors, the storylines, all of it. A few seasons ago I lost my interest in it. Perhaps because they were slowly but surely growing up, settling into their lives as parents(…)

“The Blacklist” – Milton Bobbit (1.18) episode review 1

This week gave a short glimpse of the show I actually want to be watching. It’s not that I don’t like The Blacklist the way it is, but the prospect of Elizabeth going rogue and making a little family of badass criminal folk with Red and Dembe is unbelievably appealing, don’t you think? Maybe they(…)
