nerdTV: Saturated with Superheroes

March 10, 2015

nerdTVArrow is back! I’m very excited. I’ve been missing my weekly dose of absolute stupidity. This show is Ridiculous. Capital ‘R’.

NerdTV on Person of Interest: ‘Mildly embarrassed defensiveness, bordering on hostility’

February 13, 2015

January 4, 2015

TheStrainWith the current crop of comic based shows on winter hiatus, I’m taking the opportunity to catch up on Guillermo del Toro’s vampires-meet-contagion series The Strain.

January 29, 2014

blacksails1When Spartacus ended on Starz last year, I was sad thinking that I wouldn’t have a strong period piece/epic to kick of my new year, especially considering the somber note it ended on. Fast forward to New York City Comic-Con ’13 (NYCC) when I first discovered Black Sails. Somehow missing … Read More
