The Shield is gone, leaving the airways devoid of gritty, gray-and-grayer police drama. Michael Chiklis was a complete badass, and over the course of seven amazing seasons, the writers carved an amazingly complex, suspenseful and believable tale of crime, corruption and tragedy. The last season, especially, was a masterstroke. And only a few months later, […]
If you’re like me, and I’m sure the majority is, Heroes isn’t nearly as good as it was in its first season. The writing has deteriorated, the characters have become too complicated, and the stories muddled. I’m not too the point where I’d stop watching, but the thought has crossed my mind once or twice. […]
Battlestar Galactica comes to a triumphant end in early 2009, closing out what could be the best sci-fi television series ever made. And that coming from someone who thoroughly enjoyed many of the Star Trek TV series and who loves Firefly – all 12 episodes of it. The show is a masterstroke of action, espionage, […]
As an American, I have proudly watched hours upon hours of television my entire life. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was at least listening to television while still in the womb. From The Wonder Years to Darkwing Duck, from Happy Days to Mork and Mindy, from Law and Order to Matlock, I have seen […]
According to anonymous reports, NBC has canceled two of its high profile shows, Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy. I never watched either, but I’m not at all surprised: Lipstick Jungle looked like a crappy (and presumably watered down) rip-off of Sex and the City, and My Own Worst Enemy… well, it was just […]
Holy crap. How things can change in six months. The top-rated NBC action series Heroes, which was an instant hit two years ago, has been canceled after a 25% drop in viewership with the third season’s premiere. With advertisers dropping off left and right, NBC will air the remaining seven episodes that have already been […]
We’re two episodes into Fox’s new sci-fi show Fringe, going on #3. The show, from the creator of Lost and with the fans of The X-Files in mind, is an interesting one, about genetic testing, mutations and some kind of conspiracy or invasion that is yet to be revealed. The season starts off with a […]
Anyone remember watching The Tick, which starred an idiotic but good-natured superhero (named The Tick) and his brainier but not quite so confident sidekick, Arthur? The show was hilarious, and while it has been canceled a few times, it never seems to die completely. The lovable superhero is back on the Minisodes Network, which takes […]
A&E is remaking Michael Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain, which premieres on Monday, May 26th at 9pm as a TV mini-series. TV mini-series always worry me, but The Andromeda Strain is a cool enough story that I figured I’d better see it for myself. Thankfully, A&E sent me Part One of the series to review.
While some people have railed on the early days of this season of Survivor as being uninteresting, Fans vs. Favorites is turning out to be one of the most amazing seasons of the show… ever. I’ve enjoyed it from day one, but I’m not as picky as some people, at least not in regards to […]
I’ve hated him since week one. It probably doesn’t help that I hate dreadlocks. Why would you want unruly, smelly hair when you could just buzz your head and have the same low maintenance? Regardless, Jason Castro has to go. He’s never been a good singer, and he never well be (yes, he can sing […]
If I believed in God, I would thank Him. After all, thanks to my friends at New Media and the Sci-Fi Channel, I am blessed with an early copy of Battlestar Galactica: Season 4: Episode 1, which is called He That Believeth in Me. I have been waiting to stick the DVD into my player […]
A bootleg teaser trailer for The X-Files 2 from Wondercon has made its way online. It’s a little hard to tell exactly what the movie is about, but the shots of Mulder and Scully certainly draw great crowd reactions. Check out the movie trailer below, and hopefully an official version will arrive online soon enough.
The writer’s strike is over, and all I can say is… thank you Lord! As a result, the major networks have started to release press releases detailing what to expect over the last couple of months. Many people feared that TV shows would be done for the season, but apparently the networks were more worried… […]
I hadn’t heard anything one way or another about the new season of Lost (Lost: Season 4), but it looks like Lost is arriving on TV as planned on January 31, 2008. Having written that sentence, I looked up the show on Wikipedia and found that Lost has indeed been hit by the writer’s strike […]
