ARROW Season 4×04 recap, “Beyond Redemption”

29 Oct


Welcome back, Arrowheads! Hey, great news, everyone! Sara’s alive! Sure, she’s been dead for months and thanks to the Lazarus Pit has to be chained up to avoid her attacking everyone, but, she’s alive! Also, Oliver’s running for mayor of Star City! And Felicity has problems with her cell phone! Granted that last part doesn’t seem important, but…SARA’S ALIVE! Daddy Lance is gonna be so happy to hear this! Continue reading

ZappCon Year 2

24 Oct

This past weekend we had the opportunity to attend a local conventions second year event. We were able to attend last year and so were able to see how the event had grown. ZappCon, year 2, took a solid step into growing as an event we plan to attend for the foreseeable future.


It’s not a perfect event, but it did a good job of not trying to be too big too soon, and thus it can easily grow into an event to hold its own. Continue reading

ARROW Season 4×03 recap, “Restoration”

22 Oct


Welcome back, Arrowheads! Team Arrow is facing a new enemy in HIVE, led by mystical baddie Damien Darhk, but also faces their own set of troubles, like Ollie and Diggle still being a bit guarded to each other. But there’s the big problem in Team Arrow of Thea having some murderous impulses thanks to her time in the pit. Laurel suggests taking her away for some rest, but what she doesn’t tell everyone else is she’s taking Thea to Nanda Parbat to get help from Thea’s dad. Oh, and to complete the girls’ vacation out, they dig up Sara’s corpse! It’s like Weekend at Bernie’s with super heroines! But since Sara’s corpse is being taken to be resurrected in the Lazarus Pit, its more like Weekend at Bernie’s 2…with super heroines. Sounds fun! Continue reading

Stargate SG-1 Minicaps / Season 6, Eps. 21-22 and Season Six Highlights

20 Oct

The Stargate SG-1 Season Six Minicaps is waiting to get Ascended anytime now. It thinks its earned it by now.

Stewart here…

Last time: SG-1 has been contending all season with the threat with Anubis, a System Lord with some “unusual” powers and past. Then there’s Daniel Jackson, who has Ascended, but seems to be hanging around the SGC more than you think. Since its season finale time here, its clear we’re going to see a lot of stuff set up this season boil over, but the how and how bad? Let’s find out…

A SPOILER-filled review of THE MARTIAN

18 Oct


WARNING: If you haven’t read or seen The Martian, seriously, stop reading until you do because there are SPOILERS. You were warned.

Stewart here…

As I assume most of you readers have gotten around to seeing The Martian and/or read the book, this will be a fairly point-by-point review of my thoughts on the movie. So fair warning.

ARROW Season 4×02, “The Candidate” recap

15 Oct


Welcome back, Arrowheads! Ollie and Felicity head back to Star City after playing happy suburban couple for a while. What they’ve come back to is a reticent Diggle, a slightly vicious Thea, and a new threat in HIVE, led by the not quite human Damien Darhk. Darhk wants to lay waste to the city, and has help…in a maybe reluctant Quentin! Also in the flashback portion of our tour, Ollie gets picked up by Amanda Waller and sent on a secret mission to a familiar haunt…Lian Yu! Also, someone will be in a grave six months down the road. But let’s get to this episode, shall we? Continue reading

Stargate SG-1 Minicaps / Season 6, Eps. 17-20

10 Oct

The Stargate SG-1 Season Six Minicaps is not interested in some DNA re-sequencing to help it get into shape. Nope, too risky. Going to straight up HGH to do the job.

Stewart here…

Last time, we got teased with the possibility of longtime SG-1 nemesis Senator Kinsey getting assassinated, although that turned out to be a ruse to weed out a way more corrupt end of the way corrupt NID. Way to let us down, show. Well Kinsey reappears in this round of Minicaps, so maybe there’s some hope from this creep’s demise, huh? Read on to see if I’m proven right…

ARROW Season 4×01 recap, “Green Arrow”

8 Oct


Welcome back from the summer, Arrowheads! As you remember from last season, Oliver Queen decided to leave town with new girlfriend Felicity and rediscover himself (and after the convoluted mess of last season, who would blame him), leaving Starling City in the capable hands of his hero buddies. Since we haven’t had a title change, how is it that Ollie ends up fighting crime once again? Continue reading

My Latest Obsession- Henry Cavill, the big budget flicks

6 Oct

002-Henry-CavillContinuing with my obsession with all things Henry Cavill, I’ve taken to watching some of the bigger budget, wider release films.

Of course, we all know of Man of Steel. In fact, we’ve written several posts here about it. It’s still not a good Superman movie- but I will accept it as a summer blockbuster. In some ways I am looking forward to next summers Batman vs Superman film, but in other ways… I’m terrified. But that is neither here nor there. MoS was the film that truly brought Henry Cavill to the international view. Even though Henry had been in multiple pieces at that point that put him in the public eye- I’m looking at you, The Tudors– it was MoS that made people look at him and go “whoa”. Continue reading
