‘Mad Men 7×12: Lost Horizons’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“We all know that man, because there are millions of him.” You know you’re in trouble when your descent into Hell begins with Meredith standing in for Virgil.  In the windowless labyrinth of McCann-Erickson’s corporate belly it seems as though Don Draper has finally, fatally given up.  “I expect you to bring things up a […]

‘Mad Men 7×11: Time & Life’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Stop struggling.  You won.” The Sterling-Cooper dream team has died and gone to advertising heaven. Jim Hobart enunciates the name “Coca Cola” like he’s asking Don and the other partners how they enjoyed their simultaneous touchless orgasms, but in reality he’s stealing their name, tossing probably half their employees out into the street, and consigning them […]

‘Mad Men 7×10: The Forecast’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“They love the lobby, but the emptiness is a problem.” Mad Men very nearly pipes in a cymbal crash after Don’s real estate broker delivers her withering assessment of his empty penthouse.  What she’s talking about, of course, is Don, and there’s no shortage of people lining up to inform him that he’s a smooth, good-looking huckster […]

In Defence Of The Reboot #1 – Spin-Off Central

by Mark Allen

Some of you remember my short-lived, irregular column ‘In Defence Of The Reboot’ from those halcyon days when this fair site went by the name of Blogomatic 3000. In it I would dicuss sequels, remakes, reimaginings of beloved franchises and generally things that were apt to raise fanboy ire. No? Doesn’t ring a bell? Well, […]

The Walking Dead 3×15 – “This Sorrowful Life” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Sarah Wayne Callies, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus | Created by Robert Kirkman Redemption is such a strong facet for the television show character. When we met Merle way back in season one, he was the stereotypical racist jackass. It’s no wonder that Rick decided to handcuff him and leave […]

The Walking Dead 3×14 – “Prey” Review

by Nathan Smith

‘Prey’ is an effective episode setting up the endgame to come in the dawning war between Rick and The Governor. It smartly focuses on one half of the equation and barely even registers with the prison group save for the cold open with Michonne by the fireside and a brief but unsettling apperance by Rick […]
