‘The X-Files 10×03: Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

 “It’s a reminder that no matter how overwhelming our anxieties might be, they will soon be resolved when we are dead and buried for all eternity.” Thus does the preposterously Teutonic psychiatrist prescribe a walk in the graveyard as a cure for life’s angst. Even life’s most terrifying and mysterious questions, he asserts, have answers. […]

‘The Venture Bros 6×01: Hostile Makeover’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“It’s a Sicilian thing.” It feels like the Earth was young the last time The Venture Bros was on the air, but here we are again at the start of a brand new season. Season 5 ended in flames, death, and an accordion-driven rendition of The Crash Test Dummies’ ‘Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm’ along with the […]

‘The X-Files 10×02: Founder’s Mutation’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Note the letter-opener sticking out of his head.” ‘Founder’s Mutation,’ a much stronger episode than last night’s The X-Files premiere, finds a balance between mythology and the human condition and then hums along in that sweet spot. If the story of an egotistical scientist conducting experiments on his own children is perhaps a little shopworn in the […]

‘The X-Files 10×01: My Struggle, Part 1′ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“If I’m putting my ass out there, I need to know it’s hanging by more than just a very slender thread.” After eight years of radio silence, the number stations are spinning back up. Returning to the air with the inauspiciously-named ‘My Struggle,’ The X-Files manages to wed frenetic pacing and herky editing to David Duchovny’s affectless […]

‘WWE: Best PPV Matches 2015′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Watching WWE: Best PPV Matches 2015 the hope is to see the big fights from the WWE, and for us to have a year in review. What we get is exactly that, a year in which WWE showed a need for a revolution, and not only in the Diva division… At the beginning of the […]

‘True Detective: The Complete 2nd Season’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

The level of hype around True Detective: The Complete Second Season means it had a huge job to do. The first season created something special with the relationship between Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, and created a mythology. Where the second season fails is that it totally forgets that altogether… While calling it a failure […]

‘Arne Dahl: The Complete Second Season’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When I got Arne Dahl: The Complete Second Season to review, I hoped that I’d be able to pick up the show without having to watch the first season. Luckily this is the case, and I was introduced to another good dose of Nordic Noir… Arne Dahl follows the A Unit, a group of elite police […]

‘Steven Universe 2×23: Steven’s Birthday’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“If I can just keep this up for the rest of my life, no one will suspect a thing.” Steven Universe is not made for me. This is good and correct, as it is made for children and the alternate Earth where it’s packed full of references to Hellraiser and soundtracked with deep cuts from Godspeed You! Black Emperor‘s discography is […]

‘Daredevil’ 2nd Season coming in March

by ApolloXL5

Fans of the Netflix series Daredevil got a nice post-holiday season surprise, as the show’s second season will likely appear on the streaming service before anyone initially thought. Comicbook.com noted in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly that the magazine mentions that the second series will come out in March, less than a year after the […]

‘Steven Universe 2×22: The Answer’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“There’s still time!” “That is a nice thought, but no.” Love is a key component of the fabric of Steven Universe, a force the show treats as both weapon and comfort. It’s also a subject the show has displayed immense maturity in dealing with, but there’s very little to get into when it comes to ‘The […]

‘Peep Show: Series Nine’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

If I ever had a problem with Peep Show, it is that the characters aren’t particularly nice people. They like to think they are, particularly Mark (David Mitchell) with his snobbish selfish view on life and Jeremy (Robert Webb) …who is just Jeremy. In the end for me it’s the people like Super Hans (Matt […]

‘Toast of London: Series Three’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

There is something very likable about Matt Berry, and it’s not just his awesome voice. The fact that we see him in many British comedies shows just how talented he is, and with Toast of London: Series Three we see him at his best. It would be easy to believe that Steven Toast is Matt […]

‘Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Christmas episodes of Doctor Who are normally irrelevant stories that don’t connect to the main series, and manage to be a little more light-hearted. This is why what we get with The Husbands of River Song is total fan service and the perfect coming together of Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston. When The Doctor (Peter […]

‘Doctor Who: 9×12 – Hell Bent’ Review

A show like Doctor Who sometimes needs to do the unexpected, and that is what Doctor Who: 9×12 – Hell Bent does. What I think I will call this episode is “fan service” because that is exactly what it is, in all the right ways Continuing from Heaven Sent The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is now […]

‘River’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

To make a detective show stand out these days there has to be something a little different about it. It needs to stands out from the huge crowd of ones that already have huge fan bases. River is one that not only has Stellan Skarsgård to catch people’s interest, but a decidedly macabre twist. John […]

‘Doctor Who: 9×11 – Heaven Sent’ Review

A few weeks ago with Sleep No More, I said that it was a Doctor Who experiment that had failed. With Doctor Who: 9×11 – Heaven Sent though, they’ve tried something new again, but this time brought us a season highlight which next week’s finale will have trouble topping.
