I don’t know where you buy a turkey tree, but I want one

All my adult life, I’ve heard people my age (and older) complaining about how Christmas season starts earlier and earlier every year. While true, most of the people complaining about this don’t realize that this isn’t a new phenomenon. It’s not even something that started in the last 10 or even 15 years. The Charlie […]

The Real Iron Throne

George R. R. Martin wrote a blog post revealing the differences between how he pictured The Iron Throne from the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series and the way it was depicted in “Game of Thrones” (also known as “Die Brotherf***ker, Die!”). Let me tell you, it’s frakking rad. (Click on the photo above […]

Joss Whedon returns to TV with Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Anyone that knows me knows I love Joss Whedon. Not just a little bit. I mean, I’ve seen everything he’s ever done at least once and most of it three times or more. It’s safe to say that Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel are responsible for how I judge the majority of television that […]

The Return of Magnum P.I.

  When I first saw this, I had a brief moment of joy as the irrational part of my brain took over and told the rest of my brain, “At long last! The network has seen fit to restore this show to its rightful place on television!” Then I realized that the irrational part of […]

Donate to L5, Or: How I Learned to Stop Complaining and Crowdfund Science Fiction

Yesterday, I posted an entry about L5, a completely crowd-funded sci-fi series pilot. I received an excellent comment from another fan that brought me some excellent information. It seems that L5’s first episode has already reached over a million downloads! That’s pretty impressive. Unfortunately, it seems that there have only been a little over $7,500 […]

L5 – a crowd-funded pilot episode for a sci-fi series

I’m a sucker for science fiction. I have been since childhood. I grew up staring at the TV with lightsabers  humming and lasers blasts caroming around trash compactors all day long. I loved Battlestar Galactica, despite its incredibly cheesy everything. As I got older, I continued to check out every sci-fi show I could, despite […]

Somewhere out there…

Somewhere out there, a parallel universe exists. This alternate reality is exactly like ours in nearly every way. There are thousands of parallel realities, but this one is the most important. It bears a 99.9999999% likeness rating to our own and has the following key features: Jonathan Brandis and River Phoenix are still alive and […]

If someone had told me…

If someone told me that one day I’d prefer to listen to covers of classic 80s rock songs and current pop songs sung by 20-something actors playing high schoolers instead of the original artists that recorded them, I’d have called them a liar. Or punched them in the mouth. Or both. Damn you Thank you, […]

Hulu Plus = not enough

So Hulu announced their new Hulu Plus subscription service this week and I just wanted to say… it sucks. Now hear me out, because I’m a big fan of Hulu. I am not, however, a fan of paying for ads. Nor am I a fan of paying more for less. And, unfortunately, that is what’s […]

On how some fail to see a paradigm shift…

Just an excerpt I thought pointed out how badly Hulu fails to see a paradigm shift they helped create. Gruber is not one of those who talks about Apple TV as Steve Jobs’ one dud. He likes Apple TV, but says it has a fundamental problem: it’s primarily about watching movies and TV shows through […]
