Bring out a bucket of buttered popcorn and the PJs! There is nothing quite like a family night during the holidays. Why not make it an animal-themed movie night every night for a week during the holidays? Continue reading

In order to discuss the many seasons of Stargate SG-1 as we will starting next month, it seemed appropriate to discuss the movie that gave birth to it, the 1994 hit movie, Stargate!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

12 Dec

Weather has finally arrived on the west coast, with rain and wind (and probably snow for those living in higher elevations) battering the state. It’s the perfect day to stay bundled on the couch and watch movies. Or marathon a TV show. Whichever floats your boat.

But what to watch? Continue reading

ARROW Season 3×09, “The Climb” recap

10 Dec

Welcome back, Arrowheads, to the last Arrow episode of 2014! For the majority of this season, Team Arrow has been trying to find the killer of their friend, Sara Lance, and despite all the likely suspects (like the not dead Malcolm Merlyn), have come up with a cold case. There is one lead regarding some unknown DNA samples that Felicity has dropped off to STAR Labs, but hopefully an answer will come from that, and soon. They still have to deal with Ra’s al Ghul and the League of Assassins breathing down their doorstep for answers too, and they are a little less subtle in their methods of investigation. Let’s see how that becomes a problem for everyone this episode, shall we? Continue reading

Mid-season hiatus… What now????

8 Dec

The holidays are great, right? Pretty decorations, presents, family, food, and lots of shiny baubles to distract me! But… the holidays also mean that your favorite TV shows are taking a break. Sometimes it’s a short break- just til January- but many shows today are breaking til March and allowing other shows to sneak into their timeslot.  Continue reading

Is there a point to getting up on Saturday mornings?

6 Dec

When I was a kid, we’d get up early(ish) on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons. Everything from Looney Toons to Spiderman to X-Men to Gummi Bears. They ran from dawn all the way to noon. Sometimes, a network would slip in something that wasn’t a cartoon, like Power Rangers or Superboy, but it was still a silly bit of family fun. Then FOX would run a couple of movies in the afternoon- usually things that today we’d classify as Syfy channel original films; things like Night of the LepusContinue reading

Welcome back, Arrowheads! In case you missed it because, I covered the first part of this team-up event here, Team Arrow helped Team Flash with some problems in their neighborhood, so now it’s time for Team Flash to help Team Arrow out by working on the mystery of who killed Sara Lance. So, what does all of this have to with some hit man who has boomerang blades for weapons? Complications, complications… Continue reading

We appreciate you so much. I’ll be honest, we do these posts and have this site for ourselves but to be able to share with so many… it is a blessing.  Continue reading

And The Next Round of TV Minicaps Goes To…

26 Nov

Stewart here…

Well, I just recently finished doing minicaps for Smallville, which I’ll admit took longer than I planned to do and ultimately finish. It was laid out as a year long job, and thanks to tons of mitigating factors out of my control, took almost a year and a half. But here I am, at the end of it, and now the question I have is: what show will I review next? Continue reading
