  • Helix 1×8 Review: Bloodline

    Despite giving us an action-packed eighth episode, I can’t help but feel that with Bloodline, Helix took two steps back to last week’s one step forward. Essentially, the latest installment of this show was one giant game of cat and mouse. Hatake was locked up, Julia was locked up, Alan and Sarah were locked up. […]


  • Walking Dead 4×11 Review: Claimed

    The first thing that came to mind after viewing Claimed is that in this eleventh episode of The Walking Dead‘s fourth season, for the first time in a long time they got something almost entirely right. I’m not saying that Claimed was a perfect episode, or that it didn’t have its flaws – but it was an […]


  • Black Sails 1×4 Review: IV.

    Remember that time when Black Sails dedicated the vast majority of its mere fourth episode to a plot that mostly consisted of cleaning a freaking boat? If your answer is yes, and you’re as frustrated with IV. as I am, then truly, my heart goes out to you. Okay, okay, I’ll give you this – […]


  • Walking Dead 4×10 Review: Inmates

    I admittedly didn’t care for the exposition in last week’s mid-season premiere of Walking Dead, so it wouldn’t have been extremely difficult for tonight’s episode to be an improvement – and thankfully, Inmates delivered. The opening sequence – which focused on Beth and Daryl – started out a bit slow. But as someone who has […]


  • Helix 1×7 Review: Survivor Zero

    After this week’s episode of Helix, I almost felt like I’d hit the jackpot. Why? Now that a crew of people from Arctic Biosystems’ parent company, Ilaria, have arrived, we finally have more characters! Though only one – Sutton – was given both a name and substance, I have to say…I’ve got a good feeling […]


  • Black Sails 1×3 Review: III.

    In this third installment of Black Sails, I was mainly hoping that the bit of a cliffhanger from the previous episode would lead to a bit of actual action. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. John Silver once again showed his incredibly predictable propensity for survival by withholding an important piece of information regarding the Urca […]


  • Helix 1×6 Review: Aniqatiga

    Where the past two episodes of Helix have been frustrating on several levels, Aniqatiga sheds light on some of the show’s mysteries while presenting more questions. So let’s be honest, that makes it the best episode since 274. I mean, who hasn’t been wondering about the details of cold-hearted Hatake ‘adopting’ Daniel, the man now […]


  • Walking Dead 4×9 Review: After

    At the end of Walking Dead‘s explosive mid-season finale last November, the prison was abandoned and the group scattered into several small factions – so imagine my surprise when tonight’s episode opened with yet another prison scene, as apparently Michonne hadn’t left with the others. I’ve never been shy about my opinion regarding how drawn out […]


  • Black Sails 1×2 Review: II.

    The second installment of the new Starz series Black Sails picks up pretty much where the first left us – Eleanor is in bed with Max, and Captain Flint’s crew are celebrating the fact that they have information that will lead them to a huge payday. (And yes, the latter is definitely a bit assuming […]


  • Quinni-Con 2014: Who can say no to a FREE convention?

    As someone who enjoys going to conventions – particularly ones with smaller and therefore more intimate atmospheres – I’m always on the lookout for upcoming events. Quinni-Con caught my eye not only because it takes place in my home state of Connecticut (and on a beautiful college campus, at that), but because it’s also a […]
