Fall 2017 TV: Family Comedies

I have no desire to watch either one of these comedies. Even though I still watch The Big Bang Theory, I’m not sure why since it annoys me more often than not, but watching an annoying little kid that acts like Sheldon is not how I want to spend...

The Walking Dead, Vol 20: All Out War Part 2

The Walking Dead, Vol 21: All Out War Part 2 by Robert Kirkman Pages: 136Genre: Graphic Novel, HorrorPublished: July 29, 2014 Purchase: Amazon | Powell’s 3/5 stars I liked most of how this war played out until the end. I didn’t buy the ending of this arc. Rick gives another long speech and then...

The Walking Dead Vol. 22: A New Beginning

The Walking Dead Vol. 22: A New Beginning by Robert Kirkman Pages: 136Genre: Graphic Novel, HorrorPublished: November 11, 2014 Purchase: Amazon | Powell’s 4/5 stars Even though parts of this volume drove me crazy because Robert Kirkman keeps turning Rick into a celebrity that everyone fawns over, I was still interested...

Fall Movies: Opening September 15, 2017

My top pick for the week is Mother! from Darren Aronofsky. It is supposed to be in the similar vein of Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan. If those movies disturbed you, then you might want to skip this one. I find the lead for American Assassin really bland,...

It

I haven’t reached It on my Stephen King reading list yet and I never read it previously. I also missed the Tim Curry miniseries from years ago. I really didn’t know much about the story going in besides there is a clown named Pennywise terrorizing children. Originally, I was...

Fall 2017 TV: Unique Comedies

American Vandal is a satire of the true-crime genre, but it is done with lots of love and apparently has more going for it than just laughing at a guy getting accused of drawing dicks on cars. The Mayor sounds like an extremely silly premise, but the lead actor was...

Fall 2017 TV: Gritty Dramas

If you are a fan of The Wire and David Simon, then you should be a fan of The Deuce that examines the porn and prostitution of 1970s Times Square. Law & Order: True Crime is hoping that it can get similar acclaim that American Crime Story: The People...

Fall 2017 TV: Sci-Fi or Supernatural

Ghosted doesn’t look as funny as it should be, but it has potential with its stars (Adam Scott, Craig Robinson) that I’m willing to give it a shot. The other show that looks good is The Gifted that has a plot line very similar to Heroes, but has Marvel...

Fall Movies: Opening September 8, 2017

Even though some recent Stephen King adaptations have been very sad (cough The Dark Tower), It has audiences excited and is also getting good reviews. It looks terrifying, even if you aren’t already scared of clowns. For those that can’t handle clowns, Reese Witherspoon is back to her romantic...
