Well, so much happened in tonight’s episode that I’d have to agree with Chris Hardwick who opined this is one of the best outings of the entire series. Some of those plot points were foregone conclusions from the final shots of episode 8; others were not. Some of these moments elicited laughter, with one of those also…
Because Fox’s version of Lucifer premiers tomorrow, I figured I’d review the first two issues of Vertigo’s re-lauched comic. But first, some context which will contain some spoilers for a series that ended nearly nine-and-half-years ago.
Last month, William Gibson wrote a short piece for The Guardian in which he discusses the writing process for his first novel.
Work and illness have knocked me on my tuchus, so this will be a brief one. As has repeatedly happened, often resulting in good changes to plot events and character development, the show has veered a little off-course from this particular comic book arc.
Or, Nicholas was just so damn tasty. His guilt and regret must have produced the perfect biochemical tang, because those walkers were in foodie heaven. I mean, did you see the two walkers who should have torn directly into Glenn’s face sitting there doing nothing because of Nicholas’ offal buffet?
So, I managed to finish Mark Z. Danielewski’s The Familiar: One Rainy Day in May - Vol. 1 (TF:V1) during an intensely busy couple months of work. MZD is most famous for House of Leaves º. Since then, he has written Only Revolutions and The Fifty Year Sword (of which I’ve only read the latter; it’s deceptively simple…
With cigars, RPGs (“Well, howdy, gentlemen”), and what Abraham thinks of lettuce and loose threads, old Sigmund wouldn’t know where to begin. If only the leading characters in last night’s episode had a couch on which to lounge and free associate. More on that in a bit.
Let me just say, work has been so busy lately I feel like one of the original cast of the show safely (er) ensconced inside the walls of Alexandria. While I may not have zombies waiting to eviscerate me, well, I have a horde of clients awaiting their “deliverables.” Lord, if only I could “put a pin in that” because,…
This episode is the second half of a diptych begun by last week’s “JSS.” It opens with the air horn from the truck still blowing as Rick and the herd gang run through the woods. There is strife in the ranks.
...but before I get to that, well, it is Sunday evening so, the usual spoiler warnings count. Again, there are nothing but spoilers below. So, the S.O. flipped the channel to AMC during last week’s closing shot. I joked, “I hope they start tonight’s episode with a flashback.” And they did. Because, you know, let’s…
This episode opens with a sense of urgency that has been lacking, as would seem entirely reasonable given bald, tentacle-shooting monsters roving in packs. However, whatever sense of urgency the cold open establishes is soon undermined by basic lapses in good writing, logic, and some unintentional humor. Namely, the…
Root: “What d’you know? No peep.”*
Spoilers below, so you know the drill.
While I await Kevin Garcia's always awesome breakdowns of Agents of SHIELD, I would humbly like to say this about tonight's episode: "Afterlife" was damn good.
You are warned: there's nothing but spoilers below.
No spoilers from tonight's episode of The Walking Dead, but the inestimable fan, Yvette Nicole Brown (@YNB), has it right: never enunciate while tapping your pistol for emphasis.
...because you wouldn't like her when she's angry.
Tonight's Person of Interest was one of those "quick reads" that carried within its velocity a great deal of depth (just ignore the mixed metaphor; is that a mixed metaphor? God, it's been loooong day).
I missed last week's episode of POI, so I streamed it tonight before Agent Carter's penultimate episode.*
