‘Better Call Saul 2×03: Amarillo’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Feels like something’s up.” Using your hour of airtime to tell parallel stories with no point of intersection is a risky proposition. Jimmy and Mike may both feel the pull of older, easier ways of moving and surviving in the world, and they’re both muddling through half-assed attempts at turning over a new leaf, but that’s […]

‘Vinyl 1×03: Whispered Secrets’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“You know that’s actually Devon in the portrait?” Looking in the mirror and realizing you don’t know who’s looking back, and that no one else knows either, sucks. ‘Whispered Secrets’ ends with Richie staring at a hole in the world where his wife’s portrait used to be, its pale spot on a wall a blocky […]

‘The Venture Bros 6×05: Tanks for Nuthin’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I know who my enemy is.” That hole in the lobby of Venture Tower is really racking up a body count. Assuming Battle-Ax and Think Tank (voiced by the incomparable Jeffrey Wright of Boardwalk Empire fame) both bought it in that crash, that’s three shots, three kills for Chekov’s unusually enormous gun. It’s an accretion leading directly […]

‘WWE: TLC – Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2015′ Blu-ray Review

by Phil Wheat

When you think about the Tables, Ladders and Chairs matches of the past, they have been about human wreckage and high spots. When the name was taken for the PPV event it lessened the appeal somewhat. Is WWE: TLC – Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2015 something different though? Surprisingly yes it is. Starting with the […]
