Amazonian Wonder Woman seems to be receiving a warm reception to her arrival on the big screen, which got me “wondering”, apart from Jane, Barbarella and Modesty Blaise, who else should be the golden girls of the silver screen.
The title of this week’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead “TEOTWAWKI” is short for “The end of the world as we know it.” The situation in Fear the Walking Dead (and of course The Walking Dead) certainly qualifies as an example. This week we get a better look at a group prepared for TEOTWAWKI.
It’s that time of year again, where all the shows have finished and we can look back and see what they did right, what they did wrong, and how they can improve going forwards. I’m currently writing year end reviews of all the CW DC shows, and first on the docket is Arrow. Arrow gave us a surprising year; the first…
...but I guess if I go by the effects it has on this target audience - which is probably even more relevant than Rotten tomatoes - it seems to be pretty good... :) (And yes, I’m gonna watch it this week)
Tom Scott visits The Museum of Failure
The BBC have a brief report on the stat of a trial of 3D printed bionic hands under trial in Bristol. A firm called Open Bionics is developing open source prosthetic hands for amputees such as Tilley Lockey (above) who lost a hand due to meningitis. The new range bring high-tech prosthetics with affordable reach of a…
The traditional idea of beastly behaviour involves unrestrained lusts without regard for the bonds of human affection or society. 1975's Legend of the Werewolf convincingly presents an opposite view where the uncontrollable animal urges of one man run contrary to a less severe morality in the culture. The film…
Rocket is a strange beast of a comic. Written by Al Ewing, with art by Adam Gorham, the book is a mixture of neo-noir crime thriller, heist movie, weird science fiction, and, well, comedy. And yet, due to Ewing’s love of comic book history and the impeccable comedic timing of Gorham’s art, it all works.
This is a discussion post for the seventh episode of the first season of American Gods. Beware: I will be spoiling this episode, because I really want to talk about it.
World Enough And Time. Written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay
Well, that wasn’t so bad. I was all set to hate “Empress of Mars”, the new episode of Doctor Who, written by Mark Gatiss, whose scripts are usually thoroughly lousy. Maybe he worked hard after his episode last season, “Sleep No More”, was a new low even for him. Maybe “Lie of the Land” was so bad that even a Mark…
Welcome back, Clone Club.
Tonight Vala returns to the fray and SG-1 causes more issues.
Not just any Spaceballs Merchandise (Not that there’s anything wrong with Spaceballs Merchandise!) but the original thing. Current bid is a mere $13,000!
Why not? This show was actually pretty good so it deserves more attention. Anyway, Welcome to the Wyonna Earp season 2 episode 1 “Steel Bars and Stone Walls” spoilerific reaction thread, where you can share your thoughts on the show as it plays out or after it’s done.
Hoodoggie we’re back with a new season of Dark Matter as we get ready to answer to all those pressing questions. Like, Is Nyx dead? (Probably) Is Four going to lose his Empire? (Most likely) Are the crew of the Raza screwed? (Always) Will there be betrayal? (Of course) Welcome to the Dark Matter season 3 episode 1 & 2…
The High Lords have invaded Earth, dominating us, and spreading their own realities over ours. The dark Cyberpapacy rules over large sections of Europe, India is under control of the monstrous realm of Orrorsh, and large swathes of the United States have been conquered by the low-tech Living Lands. The only thing that…
