  • 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 […]


  • Helix 1×5 Review: The White Room

    It’s no secret that last week’s episode of Helix left me feeling more than a little bit jaded, but the opening scene of The White Room was a curiosity-inducing one. Balleseros needs to find some doctor whose name he doesn’t recognize? Were those monkeys still alive somehow? And why is Dr. Hatake is stabbing himself? […]


  • Black Sails 1×1 Review: I.

    Over the past few years, our televisions have been graced with shows about everything from serial killers to zombies, meth cookers to sweeping fantasy realms, post-Edwardian aristocrats to vampires…yet despite the success of a certain Disney movie franchise, pirates have been largely ignored on TV. Until now. The series premiere of Black Sails aired on […]


  • Helix 1×4 Review: Single Strand

    I’m the type of person who usually won’t give a television show too much of my time if I’m not immediately ‘feeling it’ – I rarely make it to tv.com’s “4-Episode Test” unless I’m already hooked, and even then, if a show hits a slump at that point, I’ll keep going – at least for […]


  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

    While it’s not really possible to outright compare this second installment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy with the second installment of his Lord of the Rings trilogy, what comes to mind when I consider my opinion of The Desolation of Smaug is that it, like The Two Towers, was “better than the first one”. I, […]


  • The Walking Dead 4×08 Review: Too Far Gone

    Last week The Walking Dead left us with a shot of The Governor watching over Michonne and Hershel, and I’m not sure there was ever a question as to whether he’d do a bit more than that. In the end, though, as a comic book reader I was excited that they decided to go with […]


  • Walking Dead 4×06 Review: Live Bait

    After last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, it was clear from the preview that this week we were going to see a Governor-centric episode. I believe that usually, when television shows break away from their main characters and do extremely focused episodes, they tend to fail in terms of moving the plot forward. Unfortunately, […]
