Gotham Episode 1: Pilot

Gotham Episode 1: Pilot

Well, the first batch of those new TV shows I was talking about have started airing, and now that I can take the time sit down and watch them, it’s time to play a little catch up. Up first is FOX’s Gotham, and while I have my issues with the behind-the-scenes network decisions leading into the show, I’ll be sure to look at this series with an open mind.

My first thought on this episode is YOU…

A Walk Among the Tombstones

A Walk Among the Tombstones

Be forewarned, don’t go into this movie expecting the same Liam Neeson we’ve been seeing in Taken and it’s series of copycats.

What about that Liam Neesons, tho???

Much like Pierce Brosnan’s latest movie The November Man, my nephew was given a bit of a bait and switch. Instead of seeing “Liam Neesons,” as Key & Peelehas him refer to the Academy Award winning actor, he basically got to witness…

The Maze Runner

You know how so many young adult book movie adaptations are pretty much cheap knock-offs of either Twilight or The Hunger Games? Well, so’s this one, but it isn’t that bad.

While you could easily take umbrage with Hollywood studios copycatting each other when one studio does something successful, but considering that they’ve been doing that since they started and that people running businesses…

2014 Fall Shows Preview

2014 Fall Shows Preview

As the leaves change their color, TV networks are preparing to launch all kinds of new shows at us en masse. So, in order to keep track of what I’m looking forward to watching and what I should review, I figured I might as well have it written down somewhere. Let’s get into it.


Ladies and gentlemen, meet the reason Almost Human was cancelled. Not that I’m jaded about it or anything.

As Above, So Below

As Above, So Below

Welcome to the slow period in movie releases. Not a whole lot has been released lately that’s been all that noteworthy or memorable, even more look interesting enough to pay $8 a head to get in the door. So, when a teenage nephew wants to see something in the movie and the only thing he’s interested in is a “found footage” horror movie, you take what you can get.

I use quotation marks because…

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.


Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone could start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

If you can’t recite every word of this commercial by heart you probably weren’t born in the 90’s

This used to run non-stop on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network between commercial breaks.

My childhood. :’)

The November Man

Whoa, man. Bond got really dark in his later years.

Except his hair. That has started turning white.

It’s safe to say that as actors get older, they often try to hold on to the type of roles they had when they were younger. Earlier this month is Sylvester Stallone’s third installment in the 80s action hero retirement home that is The Expendables, and here we have Pierce Brosnan tapping into his…
