The Terror Season 1 Review

May 29, 2018 No Comments

As one AMC juggernaut sees its ratings dip, along comes another series that just may very well blow all other series out of the water (no pun intended). The Terror recently wrapped up its 10-episode first season. It’s rare for a show to start off with a bang and not only ride that momentum but […]

Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Review

May 01, 2018 No Comments

The third season of Starz’s no-holds-barred horror-comedy series Ash vs Evil Dead is in the books.  Well…it’s in A book.  It’s in THE book? The Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, or The Book of the Dead, is the source of antagonism in creators Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert’s bizarre, funny, scary, and gloriously gross Evil Dead […]

The Walking Dead Season 8 Final Grade

Apr 16, 2018 No Comments

If The Wire and Breaking Bad are any indication, the ideal length for a television series is five seasons. The Wire was ambitious and unanimously praised for among other things bringing a complex, nuanced tale to our screens with a remarkable level of execution. It was like watching a really good novel manifest in our […]

The Walking Dead Season 8 Midterm Report Card

Dec 12, 2017 No Comments

My final grade of the seventh season of The Walking Dead was my harshest one yet.  AMC’s hit show had found itself in a formulaic rut the result of which was a frustrating, structurally-flawed weekly hour of television.  As a huge fan and steadfast defender of the series’ better days, this reviewer grew weary of […]

Ladies and gentlemen, your new favorite television series has arrived. Based on the beloved novel by Neil Gaiman and developed for the small screen by powerhouse duo Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, American Gods just finished its first season and if this season is supposed to be the slow and cautious installment of the series, […]

The Walking Dead Season 7 Final Grade

Apr 03, 2017 1 Comment

The Walking Dead’s seventh season is over and AMC’s smash hit shambles on.  Following this season’s first half—a stretch this reviewer considers the low point of the series, or the high point if you’re literally jumping over a shark—these most recent eight episodes have been a substantial improvement.  Although, that’s not exactly a ringing endorsement […]

The Walking Dead Season 7 Midterm Report Card

Dec 12, 2016 1 Comment

AMC’s resounding smash hit has had several buzz-worthy moments through the years, but perhaps none more so than the cliffhanger of its sixth season.  With Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of our survivors lined up on their knees and confronted by the barbwire-wrapped baseball bat-wielding Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his acolytes known as […]

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 […]

The X-Files Season 10: Just Put Me At Ease, Mr. Carter…

Mar 04, 2016 No Comments

In high school, when The X-Files was in its original run, I had a friend who was a huge conspiracy buff. He was a devout Christian conservative; I was a more-or-less moderate atheist fascinated by Aztec religion. Between his conviction that the Book of Revelation predicted the rise of the New World Order, my troubling […]
