Continuum

My first thought was that this was meant to be a CW show. Everyone is too pretty and too young. It just has that “The FBI’s hottest agents are all in one apartment complex” feeling. For instance, Rachel… Read More

Castle And POI

Every TV series seems to go through a similar arc. They get off to a wobbly start while the writers are trying to define the characters in terms of the actors. Hopefully, this happens in the first season… Read More

In Praise of the Binge

I was excited about the reboot of Battlestar Galactica when it first burst upon the scene back in 2004. I’m a big Edward James Olmos fan and the idea of swapping genders for Boomer and Starbuck I thought… Read More
