The fate of Brian’s My Corner of the World seemed to hang in limbo for a bit, but he’s finally back and entertaining as ever! But we all know that Maya is the REAL star here! Continue reading
Bruce Springsteen’s working class Jersey rock may be able to heal some hurtin’ hearts but it’s done nothing for my poor iMac; a victim of a rogue power surge that followed hurricane Sandy. After much soul searching and pleads to my insurance company, I finally have a working edit station again. Yay. That means the return of My Corner of the World with this latest episode, “Tokyo Jungle.” I meant for it to go live over Halloween since it features Maya in a raccoon suit but mother nature had other plans. Maya… in a raccoon suit after the break.
There was a lot going on in September of 2001. So you’ll have to forgive me (and most of the still grieving world) for ignoring J.J. Abrams’ sci-fi espionage serial, ALIAS, a crime for which I now repent wholeheartedly. Now that the series has come to Netflix Instant Streaming, I felt compelled to give it a shot considering its impressive pedigree.
You can’t blame me for taking this long to catch up. It’s an easy show to dismiss. Just look at this promo pic.
Sight unseen, the romcom-ready, model-thin Jennifer Garner would seem to be the worst possible choice to lead up a gritty, whip-smart super spy series about a double agent working to bring down a criminal spy organization from the inside.
Taken out of context her array of wigs and accents seems doomed to failure but, and this is very important, ALIAS was created by J.J. “Fucking” Abrams. The same J.J. Abrams who gave us capitalized classics like LOST, FRINGE and revitalized the STAR TREK universe by sheer force of will. The dude knows exactly what he’s doing and Jennifer Garner’s performance as Sydney Bristow here is enough to wipe my mind of the misery of Daredevil, Elektra and 13 Going on 30 forever.
