It seems to be an unwritten rule that genre shows will eventually do musical episodes (I’m sure you can think of your own examples so I won’t make a list). Since Once Upon a Time is also a Disney show I’m surprised it took six seasons before the Storybrooke Avengers broke out in song.
The second series of Stan Lee’s Lucky Man came to a close on Sky One the other week. The British superhero show is a fun romp that has James Nesbitt’s DI Harry Clayton gain a luck-themed power through a mystic Chinese bracelet. Except sometimes his good fortune means bad luck for somebody else.
If one looks at Post Modernism as a loss of innocence, one might see 1974's Celine and Julie Go Boating (Céline et Julie vont en bateau) as a Post Modernist lamentation of the inherent tragedy of Post Modernism. A New Wave film by Jacques Rivette, the film charts the nature of the human need for storytelling through a…
Sometimes, it’s the comics that nobody expects that surprises you. When ResurrXion was announced, most fans were excited about the brand new X-line, X-Men: Gold and X-Men: Blue, Jean Grey and Generation X and Iceman. Hell, I’m still excited about it. But when I saw the announcement of the first solo series for Black…
Добро пожаловать! This is where we talk about American Gods with spoilers from the book. Is good?
When coming to an supernaturally powered being who has been on a deserted island for quite as while? You’re welcome. For - many things he did long ago. Not so much for going into hiding after his nephew killed his padawans/ he stole that thing that turned that thing into another thing.... but anyway.... you’re…
To-day’s new Doctor Who, “Knock Knock”, is one of my favourite story types for a television series episode—a group of characters trapped in an old building. Usually haunted but not necessarily. So I’m predisposed to like this and mostly I wasn’t disappointed—and I suspect the few problems I had with the episode…
Today the Ori use their viral powers to attack Earth itself.
The first promo picture of the Inhumans shocked the internet. I was already nervous when the first set pictures with Black Bolt showed up, but the first ‘polished’ look made me really angry. Especially when I remembered the fantastic promo picture of CWs Black Lightning.

How much better could the maker of the the arguably worst movie of the century (so far) make the whole franchise? Especially if he proofs unkillable, even by Darth Wiseau’s old buddy Mark?
Well, it looks like this is the season class and race are going to be issues on Doctor Who, if this week and last are any indication. To-day’s episode, “Thin Ice”, written by Sarah Dollard, fumbles in a few areas but mostly is an entertaining adventure in a pleasingly novel time and place, 1814 on the frozen Thames. I…
An “innovative and genre busting” new show is coming to the BBC. They have just announced Armchair Detectives which combines a murder mystery drama with a gameshow. It will transport three players and viewers at home to the fictional town of Mortcliff where a dastardly crime has been committed. Their task - to…
NASA’s Deep Space Network keeps track of a large number of probes out there. Spacecraft are at the moon, Mars, Saturn and in deep space. I love the fact that they check in on Voyager 1 and 2 from time to time. Voyager 2 is 31 light hours from earth. Voyager 1 is in interstellar space and 38 light hours out.
Dr. Mrs. Hatrack and I were driving home this afternoon and she started thinking about our summer plans. “I’m really looking forward to going on vacation and not flying.” I asked her why.
After the minion saw this, she now calls herself mini bun.
Controller of BBC Drama and former Doctor Who producer, Piers Wenger has announced over 47-hours of new drama commissions which includes a three-part adaptation of HG Wells’ The War of the Worlds.
