Rogue: The Complete First Season
As I’ve argued before, there are two ways to approach reviewing an ongoing television series.  Critically, the best way to gleam all the good, bad, and ugly for any program is to follow each and every hour, analyzing each one for strengths and weaknesses; however, that isn’t the way most folks approach television.  Largely, folks watch the first hour; make some rudimentary decision …

Brian May & Kerry Ellis: The Candlelight Concerts - Live at Montreux 2013
I love acoustic-style performances.  I always have.  I think there’s honestly nothing as magnificently sublime as pairing the human voice with either a single instrument (or very few) because the arrangement – when done right – tends to showcase the best talent available from both worlds.  Specifically, I think the human voice sounds incredible when backed simply by …

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season
It’s not always easy to review an entire run of one program’s season.  For starters, some U.S. shows can be well over twenty individual hourly episodes, and that’s a daunting investment of time not only on the part of the critic but also on the part of the readers.  In fact, I’ve often argued that it’s practically torturous to even try to do that to myself much …

Firefly - The Complete Series (2002)
First off, let me assure you this: I’m no fanboy who slobbers over all things Joss Whedon.  I don’t dislike the man, nor do I dislike his work.  I have a healthy respect for anyone who can work as long in the entertainment business as Whedon has and still have a regular job doing what he does; it’s just that I – like the rest of society – just don’t necessarily …

Annika Bengtzon, Crime Reporter: Episodes 4-6
It used to be that more and more students headed toward college wanted to study journalism.  And why not?  Who wouldn’t want a job where you were paid well to spend a great deal of your time speaking with people?  That isn’t meant as an insult.  As one who briefly considered journalism myself many moons ago, I can certainly appreciate the hard work it takes to crack …

Annika Bengtzon, Crime Reporter: A Place in the Sun
It happens to all of us: just about the time you think a program is about to win you over, it defecates all over the place.  I’d mentioned in my review of LIFETIME – the last installment of the series focusing on a glamorous reporter investigating a life of crime – that, perhaps, ANNIKA BENGTZON had come into her own.  She faced her personal demons – an exhausting …

Doctor Who: Pyramids of Mars (Story 82)
I wouldn’t exactly say that I “grew up” watching Doctor Who.  I can admit that I discovered it in the mid-1970’s by way of the local PBS affiliate broadcasting the BBC program here in the United States, and I can say – without reservation – that my first Doctor was the legendary Tom Baker.  (And, yes, I subscribe to that whole wives’ tale that tells …

Annika Bengzton, Crime Reporter: Lifetime
As well as the ANNIKA BENGZTON, CRIME REPORTER series has been produced, I’ve struggled a bit wrapping my brain around the character.  At times, she appears universally driven to expose wrongs in the hopes of seeing them righted, but – more often than not – she goes about her daily life as if completely oblivious to the pain, hardship, and/or suffering she inflicts on those …

Annika Bengtzon, Crime Reporter: Red Wolf
Long gone are the days when high-class reporters could jet-set around the country in order to catch a big scoop or nail an exclusive before the competition, but, in the world of ANNIKA BENGTZON, there’s still a glimmer of those fashionable yesterdays.  As a crime reporter for a media conglomerate, she makes it her job to corral the big story even if that means she has to sacrifice any semblance …

Maid Service
The thing most casual viewers of animated pornography of which MAID SERVICE most definitely is don’t understand is that this is pretty tame.  Yes, it’s at times torturous, and, of course, it’s at other times more than a bit disturbing … but if there’s one thing I’ve learned from that current critical favorite, HOUSE OF CARDS, it’s that sex – in …

The After
The best thing that one might be able to say based entirely on the pilot episode for THE AFTER is that – so far as production and storytelling goes – it didn’t suck. Granted, there was very little learned about the world these various characters live in – apparently, it’s the End of the World as We Know It and not everyone feels fine. However, there’s a plot twist …

Kroll Show
Have you seen Nick Kroll’s face? If you haven’t, then you’re missing something kinda/sorta special. That’s not a swipe. He isn’t ugly. His is a unique twist on the ‘everyman’ appeal. He’s got eyes that can balance dramatic subtlety or pop out of his head (figuratively) should the scene require it. He’s got these low-hanging eyelids and a generally …

Smithsonian Channel: White House Revealed
I’m a huge lover of history.  Always have been.  Probably always will be.  That’s why I tend to get overly jazzed by releases that offer us – as a culture – perhaps something fresh, new, and original.  I want to see something that I haven’t seen before, and I’d like to done in a respectful way that preserves the honesty and integrity of the person, …

Helix: Season 1, Episodes 1 & 2 (Pilot)
One time, I made the heads of so many Battlestar Galactica (aka BSG) fans explode.   While Syfy’s program was in its infancy, I posted in one forum something to the effect (but not exactly) that I wasn’t all that impressed with Ron Moore’s ‘interpretation’ and that, if pushed to the max, I still preferred the simpler “good vs. evil” tone of the original.   …

Shrek the Halls
This Christmas special takes place after the events of SHREK THE THIRD. Shrek and Fiona are happily raising their babies, but Donkey keeps bugging Shrek about getting ready for Christmas. Shrek has never celebrated Christmas before and doesn't plan on doing so until he finds out Fiona is looking forward to it and Shrek unexpectedly promises Fiona a Christmas surprise. Shrek races into town on …

Star Trek Fan Collective Borg
I'm not a Trekkie or Trekker; I'm more of a Star Wars guy. However, I was a fan of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION when it was originally on television. I remember watching the episode when the Enterprise was first introduced to the Borg through Q ("Q Who?"). I also remember watching the season cliffhanger, "The Best of Both Worlds" where Picard was kidnapped by the Borg. …

Lost and Found
Although I’m no parent (unless you’re counting cats!), I can certainly appreciate the difficult parents have in raising a child.  I don’t subscribe to that whole “it takes a village” nonsense, but I do think communities do have something to offer by way of ‘assisting’ any parent in instilling good behaviors and respectable beliefs.  In fact, I think …

Sexual Freedom: Sex Stories 3
The things that’s universal about films with graphic sex (I hate calling it merely ‘pornography’) is that they’re universal: anyone from any culture understands entirely what’s going on.  The upside to that is that there’s little need for story – in fact, the Japanese have gone to great lengths with their Pinky/Pinku flicks as well as everybody else with …

Farscape: The Complete Series (15th Anniversary Edition)
In March of 1999, the Sci-Fi Channel premiered its latest foray into the genre of science fiction with a little program promisingly named FARSCAPE.  There wasn’t a lot of pomp and circumstances surrounding the new program – certainly not the kind of media blitz Sci-Fi practically demanded for its BATTLESTAR GALACTICA reboot a few years later – but, to be fair, that may’ve …

A Waste of Shame
Despite the volumes of his writing available to modern scholars, William Shakespeare still remains something of a mystery.  Who was he?  Why did he devote so much of his life to writing so much of what he did?  Even though he’s best known for the comedies, tragedies, and histories he’s left behind, quite a bit of speculation has plumbed what love (or is that ‘loves’?) …
