Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 Review

Dec 12, 2016 2 Comments

Ash vs Evil Dead—this reviewer’s inner-12-year-old’s dream show—is an oddity.  It’s most certainly light on plot and it panders with the lowest-hanging fruit that it can, but it’s also great fun, and it’s the true, direct descendent of the movies that we loved as kids.  It’s also by far the most viscerally disgusting thing that’s […]

The Walking Dead Season 6 Final Grade

Apr 04, 2016 No Comments

The second half of The Walking Dead’s sixth season is in the books and AMC’s Sunday-night juggernaut continues to shamble forth and devour the competition. This semi-season is packed with high-stakes drama, darkness, and no-holds-barred collateral damage and while the series remains successful in those ways, it also fails just as spectacularly in a few […]

Although much has been made about the fact that ratings have slipped at points during the latest season of AMC’s flagship drama The Walking Dead, the first eight episodes of its sixth season continue to be the monstrous pop-cultural phenomenon that no one saw coming back in 2010. Season 6 begins with our heroes still […]

American Horror Story: Hotel Episode 1 Review

Oct 09, 2015 No Comments

Remember how Star Wars fans felt about Jar Jar Binks? That’s how I feel about American Horror Story. Both represent the same sort of disdain for the source material, but whereas Jar Jar just shat on one franchise, American Horror Story has, for four seasons straight, soiled an entire genre. Created by Ryan Murphy and […]

Fear the Walking Dead Final Grade

Oct 05, 2015 No Comments

For a show that got off to a slow start, Fear the Walking Dead proved itself to be a solid zombie series by the end of its inaugural season. With the initial season of six episodes now complete and aired, we’re left with the desire for more, a feeling that is very familiar to those […]

The fifth season of AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead has devoured its last morsel of Sunday night competition until later this year, and just like its previous seasons and its titular rotten ghouls, carnage has been left in its wake, both the emotional variety and the bloody, wet type, too. These past eight episodes […]
