The 13th Doctor Has Been Revealed!

And for some reason, people have a problem with it… Not that this surprises anyone.

This is a long and difficult post. However, I really need to get this off my chest.

A friend of mine and I had a good conversation a while back. It was about gender/race swapping comic book characters. He, as a black man, had some pretty good insights on the subject. Honestly, he’s one of the smartest geeks I know. He will beat you in quite a lot of comic book trivia. But ultimately his opinion boiled down to a simple truth;

If it doesn’t define the character, it doesn’t matter.

I’d never thought of it that way, but Continue reading The 13th Doctor Has Been Revealed!

Bones Says Good-Bye After 12 Years

This is the year of farewells. Bones has come to an end.

From the Wikipedia page:

Created by Hart Hanson, the series is very loosely based on the life and writings of novelist and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, who also produces the show. Its title character, Temperance Brennan, is named after the protagonist of Reichs’ crime novel series. Similarly, Dr. Brennan in the Bones universe writes successful mystery novels featuring a fictional forensic anthropologist named Kathy Reichs. Bones is a joint production by Josephson Entertainment, Far Field Productions and 20th Century Fox Television. The series is the longest-running one-hour drama series produced by 20th Century Fox Television.

Buffy’s Scooby Gang Reunites 20 Years Later

Entertainment Weekly has reunited the Scooby Gang 20 years later. The whole cast looks absolutely amazing. As Joss Whedon says, “This is surreal. For the most part, this is like a high school reunion but much worse because they all still look so great. I was hoping some of them would puff out a bit. But that did not take place.” Maybe they are all really vampires?

This show really does Continue reading Buffy’s Scooby Gang Reunites 20 Years Later

Back to the past, Samurai Jack…

As nostalgia rules over the ever-aging Millenials with reboots to pull at their heart strings (Ghostbusters, Duck Tales, I even heard a Matrix rumor today…), the samurai on the noblest of quests is back to finish what he started. Canceled after four seasons on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim (2001-2004), Samurai Jack returns to television for one Continue reading Back to the past, Samurai Jack…

Riverdale: Who Killed Jason Blossom?

Riverdale Cast

For years, people asked, “Who killed Laura Palmer?” Now on the CW, it’s all about “Who killed Jason Blossom?”

The CW has taken the sweet characters from Archie that we all grew up with and added a bit of noir and darkness to it. This is not the Archie cast you once knew.

Jughead is now the brooding narrator of the story with a bit of a love story brewing. Archie is an aspiring musician and seems quite the ladies man. Veronica is actually less bitchy and spoiled while Josie and Cheryl come off as more of the mean queens of Riverdale. Betty has a bit of a dark episode, almost boiling a fellow student to death. Miss Grundy is now a vivacious, young music teacher in the high school with a sexual appetite of her own. Continue reading Riverdale: Who Killed Jason Blossom?

Why Haven’t You Been Watching “Stitchers”?

Stitchers
We are lucky enough to live in a time that offers a plethora of television shows in any number of genres. As much as I love all of my long list of shows that take up almost every night of the week, it can be exhausting. Sometimes, I temporarily give myself a break from a show if I start to feel like it’s more like homework than something I look forward to…(more recently that’s been Once Upon A Time, unfortunately).

So, naturally, I try not to watch new shows because that just adds onto the very high pile. However, I made an exception recently because Continue reading Why Haven’t You Been Watching “Stitchers”?
