  • Watching Taken the Miniseries (part 4)

    We’ve reached the 1970’s. The kids have grown up.  The project has evolved.  The aliens are…  still doing their thing. Owen Crawford’s oldest son, Eric has followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the government’s UFO project, but Owen doesn’t seem particularly enthusiastic of his efforts. Last episode Anne made it clear that Sam was […]


  • Watching Taken the Miniseries (part 3)

    Unlike the first two episodes, there isn’t a huge time gap between the end of Jacob and Jesse and the start of High Hopes. We continue to watch Jacob and Jesse grow up with their unique experiences in relation to the alien visitors. Jacob is looked after by them, protected, and even given a warning […]


  • Watching Taken the TV Miniseries (part 2)

    The second episode of the series is titled Jacob and Jesse and, indeed, we get introduced to the two character that propel most of the early episodes of the series forward. If you haven’t watched the second episode, you should go do so before reading the review as it will be a minefield of spoilers […]


  • Watching Taken the TV Miniseries (part 1)

    I was recently reminded of a TV miniseries that I was absolutely obsessed with for a while and decided to look it up and give it a rewatch after not really thinking about it for many many years. When I googled it I was surprised to learn that it’s been 11 years since it came […]


  • What Is This “Alphas” Thing?

    I recently got access to Netflix and decided to give the whole “recommendations” thing a shot.  All my shows (no joke, every single one) is on hiatus right now and it’s either try something new or watch the same favorites over and over and over again.  No offense to those that marathon their favorite shows […]


  • Hayao Miyazaki is retiring

    For fans of Studio Ghibli, there was some heartbreaking news that came out of the Venice film festival this weekend: Hayao Miyasaki, director and writer of films like “The Princess Mononoke” and “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” is retiring. There was no reason given at the time of the announcement; which was made by Koji Hoshino, who […]


  • Sherlock Season 3 – Filming Wrapped

    It’s over.  Filming is complete.  Will this be the last Setlock article?  Looks like it.  But we’ll still be posting everything that we learn up until the premiere in January.  They won’t be from the set, but they still have a lengthy editing process and as the date gets closer there will be interviews and […]


  • Sherlock Season 3 Episode 3- Late August Shooting

    It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve written about Setlock, hasn’t it?  Sorry for the break.  Another fandom had my attention for a week (Misha’s GISHWHES, if you’re curious) and then I moved cross country and, well, it’s been a bit hard to track the tag.  But enough about me, on with Setlock!  And […]


  • Sherlock – The Great August Tweeting Kerfuffle

    Clicking on the Setlock tag on Tumblr this morning was like opening my door and being greeted by a hurricane.  Things have been pretty quiet beyond this catastrophic tweeting kerfuffle, but you certainly wouldn’t be able to tell that by looking at that tag today.  What a disaster.  Let’s tackle this mountain of rumors head […]
