J. AUGUST RICHARDS

This was an exciting episode for fans of AOS as the mid-season finale delves into the main threat of the season, Project Centipede.  Micheal Peterson (J. August Richard) from the pilot episode makes a very welcomed return.  Also returning for a second time is the girl in the flowered dress, Raina.  The episode begins with  [ Read More ]

I have to say right off the jump that this is by far my favorite episode of the season.  We managed to get  introductions to a couple of comic book mainstays.  While last week featured a Simmons centric story, this time around Fitz got thrown into the lime light.  We find out a little bit  [ Read More ]

It’s unfortunate that every time I sit down to watch Agents of SHIELD, the negative comments of countless users and reviewers are running through my mind.  I ask myself will this episode have what they want, and after it’s done I ask “How could they not like this episode?”   I found myself asking that  [ Read More ]

I know everyone’s taste is subjective, but I seriously have to say that if no one liked this episode of AOS, then I really believe they just want to hate on this show for hating sake.  I know as a reviewer I’m not suppose to say comments like this, especially opening my review with it,  [ Read More ]

For those wishing that Agents of SHIELD was a little bit darker in tone, then you may take a liking to this episode.  It opens with a rather creepy scene featuring a group of Jabawakee lookalikes in red masks and business attire with suitcases handcuffed to their arms.  The scene also include the severing of  [ Read More ]

Yes we are back to prison life in season 4 of The Walking Dead, and life has changed for a few of the survivors.  Like the title of the episode states, there have been 30 days without an accident or I guess an incident.  But we all know that’s about to change don’t we.  As  [ Read More ]

So… We now live in a world where Marvel has a shared cinematic universe both on the small and big screen.  And you know what?  I freakin’ love it.  I know that wasn’t very professional but I had to get that out.  Was this the best hour of television?  I wouldn’t go that far.  But  [ Read More ]

The Intro: Monday Night Raw starts off with Stephanie McMahon addressing Daniel Bryan’s appearance as a WWE Champion. A little montage of Daniel Bryan “cleaning up” plays on the titantron, and he walks out in a nice snazzy suit. He gives a speech, stating that “John Cena is an entertainer, I am a wrestler!” And  [ Read More ]

SpartacusWarOfTheDamnedSeason1Episode1

We have come to the penultimate chapter in the Spartacus saga, and the creators deems it fit to give us an almost full circle effect by bringing back the gladiatorial games.  Well a version of it anyway.  This time it’s the rebellion that’s in control of the games, and the Roman soldiers as the meat  [ Read More ]

Finally!!! Season three of the Game of Thrones is here and if book three is any indication, we are in for one awesome ride.  Because of the nature of the story, there was a lot of ground to cover in terms of introducing and reintroducing characters.  To keep things in order both for myself and  [ Read More ]

The end draws nearer to the series, and we are seeing so far some big losses.  Spartacus and Crixus have finally come the end of their journey together as brothers in arms as they come to what the title of the episode suggests, separate paths.  The episode does not hold back in reminding us were  [ Read More ]

SpartacusWarOfTheDamnedSeason1Episode1

The last season of Spartacus is turning out to be it’s greyest season.  While we see bad guys on both sides, we good guys on both as well.  Last week we saw a softer side to Caesar when he took that poor girl out of her misery and it made us identify with him a  [ Read More ]

SpartacusWarOfTheDamnedSeason1Episode1

Spartacus is now heading to that territory where everything is extremely grey.  No longer can we look at Spartacus’ rebellion as righteous when we can clearly see that if the Romans were all under the boot heels of the freed slaves, they would act in the same manor.  Case in point, when Crixus tells the  [ Read More ]

Spartacus: War of the Damned - Manu Bennett

This episode sees Spartacus’ plan to cease a city for shelter come to fruition and in doing so, shined a light upon him that may not be as attractive to the image of  him being savior.  There were layers of Spartacus on display here that I never would have thought the show writers would include.  [ Read More ]

SpartacusWarOfTheDamnedSeason1Episode1

Spartacus returns for its final season with all swords drawn and a killer opening as Spartacus and the rebels lay waste to the Roman army.  While Spartacus’ army grows larger, all seems lost until Rome decides to enlist the help of Marcus Crassus, a man we have heard about since season 1.  It is poetic  [ Read More ]

Before I get to the awesomeness that was the mid season finale, I have to address “quota” for black characters this show seems to have.  Fan favorite from the comics, Tyrese gets introduced in in this episode.  But as soon as he comes in, Oscar goes out, same as T Dog before him.  I am  [ Read More ]

After the insane events that occurred in episode 4, the next couple of episodes sort of took it a bit easy, while still giving us something exciting to chew on (Heh, saw what I did there?… No.  Okay moving on).  This episode however picks up the pace as Michonne arrives at the prison with the  [ Read More ]

Am I dreaming?  Did what just happen in episode four of season three of The Walking Dead really happened?  I’ve often used the word intense when reviewing an episode of the show.  That word just isn’t strong enough to apply to the sh!t storm that rained down on our heroes in the “Killer Within” I’m  [ Read More ]

I just love it when a show is able to keep its momentum set from the previous episode, and that’s just what this week’s episode of The Walking Dead did.  We pick up right were we left off after Rick hacked Hershel’s zombie bitten leg off.  We find out that there are inmates who survived  [ Read More ]

Wow…. Just Wow.  Am I allowed to just say that and just leave it?  No?  Ok, ok I’ll tell you more about what I thought.  The first thing to notice is that the opening minutes of the episode had no dialog at all.  We see the precision killing of the walkers to clear out a  [ Read More ]

This episode manages to keep the momentum that the show had since its pilot.  Right off the bat, we see Sam having to deal with descension amongst the crew by throwing one of his own into the brig in order to keep the peace with the natives.  We get to see some plot forwarding on  [ Read More ]

Dexter “Are You…?” Review

dexter-season-7-poster1

Many people consider last season of Dexter to be far inferior to previous seasons.  They believed the twist of the season was anything but.  The sudden case of attraction that Deb felt for Dexter was unwarranted and the season ending cliffhanger should have occurred in season 5.  I didn’t have such vile against season six  [ Read More ]

Neville  -- (Photo by: Nino Munoz/NBC)

Revolution is the kind of show that presents an interesting premise, but you cross your fingers and hope the show doesn’t get cancelled.  Serialized television calls for you to get invested in the characters and plots, so much so that if the show gets cancelled you feel like your heart was ripped out.  Jon Favreau  [ Read More ]
