  • RE: Forbes’ “Report from MegaCon 2014”

    I recently attended MegaCon in Orlando, Florida.  When writing my main con report I searched the Internet for other recaps of the event and I was frustrated when I came across an article from Forbes that called out all those people who ‘don’t read comics’. I mean, David DiSalvo has been buying comics since they […]


  • Game of Thrones 4×1 Review: Two Swords

    Though it definitely required the viewer to be paying attention (or, let’s be honest, to have read the books) the opening scene of the season four premiere of Game of Thrones was, in my opinion, one of the show’s strongest openings ever. Though I’ve had my gripes with the show’s interpretation of many things, the […]


  • MegaCon 2014: Enjoyable Despite its Growing Pains

    This year was my second time attending MegaCon in Orlando, Florida, but the convention itself has been around since 1993. Originally a comic book convention, eventually it expanded to be multigenre – and its attendance grows every year. In 2013 they claimed that around 65,000 people showed up; rumors are that this year they broke […]


  • The Walking Dead 4×16 Review: A

    When tonight’s season finale of The Walking Dead ended, I definitely had to take a few deep breaths before I could sit down and write this review. The thing is, I’m torn between applauding the writers and producers for making such brave choices and railing at them for taking some things more than a bit too […]


  • Helix 1×13 Review: Dans L’Ombre

    Though the past two episodes seemed to take a step or two backward, one thing I can say for Helix is that it didn’t continue to do so in its season finale. In fact, each week viewers have seen the ticker that displays how many days it has been since the CDC crew arrived at […]


  • Helix 1×12 Review: The Reaping

    The first season of Helix is about to wrap up, but all I can think after watching the most recent episode is that they’re still too busy throwing around ‘shock bits’ to tell the story well. In fact, the vast majority of The Reaping – contrary to what its name implies – was no more […]


  • Walking Dead 4×15 Review: Us

    Tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead was the second to last one in season four, and it opened with some characters that we haven’t seen in quite a while – Glenn and Tara, and Abraham and company. However, at first the focus seemed to be on Abraham and Tara, though thankfully after their late night […]


  • Walking Dead 4×14 Review: The Grove

    For the third-to-last episode in the fourth season of The Walking Dead, viewers were given what was likely one hell of a shock – unless of course they’d read the comic books and followed any of the theories surrounding the Samuels sisters. The opening scene of The Grove was more than a little creepy, but I […]


  • Helix 1×11 Review: Black Rain

    As far as I can tell, despite being only two episodes away from the end of its first season, Helix has yet to be renewed for a second.  Between that and the storyline (or lack of it?) in this week’s episode, I’m beginning to wonder if the writers even care anymore. Or – even worse […]


  • One Week to MegaCon!

    We’re just a week away from MegaCon 2014 in Orlando, Florida, and this convention is still bringing surprises to the table. Just a few days ago they announced yet another new media guest – Manu Bennett of Spartacus/The Hobbit/Arrow fame! Mr. Bennett joins the ranks of some other awesome guests, including David Morrissey, Sonequa Martin-Green, […]
