‘Once Upon A Time’ 5×12 Review: “Souls of the Departed”

It feels like I last wrote one of this a lifetime ago. But three months can be a lifetime to fans. A long, cruel, never-ending lifetime of waiting and waiting and …waiting. Until now. Until this very moment. Until this…

‘Once Upon A Time’ – Ten things to expect from “Souls of the Departed”

7 Times Killian Jones’s Hair Game Was Stronger Than Ours

‘The X-Files’ Review “Home Again”

I always tend to judge episodes by the emotions they evoke in me. Sure, some episodes are better plotted, and some are better acted, but the mark of a brilliant episode, is in the emotions. My emotions, not the characters.…

‘The X-Files’ Teases Scully’s Alien DNA

FOX sure knows how to up the stakes. Bring up the Alien DNA! On paper, debuting new footage for the last episode of this 6-episode revival of The X-Files during the Super Bowl was a bad idea. Everyone was busy watching…

‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ 1×03 Review: Blood Ties

Building a show out of characters we’re familiar with is both a very good bet and a dangerous way to live. A good bet because, let’s face it, the getting people to care is the biggest hurdle any new show…

‘Once Upon A Time’ – I’m Thankful for Hook

A few months ago I started this series with Emma, and it feels somewhat fitting that I’m ending it today, with Captain Hook. I like, or at least appreciate things, about most of the characters in this show, but my…

See the New ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Highlight Reel

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them is coming. We just wish it was coming a little bit sooner. Like, tomorrow. Or, in a week. A month, tops. Not ten months! Especially when we keep getting these tantalizing glimpses. It’s torture. It’s…

‘The X-Files’ Review: “Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster”

‘Once Upon A Time’ – I’m Thankful for Henry

Remember the first episode? Remember that wide-eyed kid who knocked on Emma’s door and brought with him magic and adventure? Remember that looking at him and realizing he really, really believed? Remember that little face full of hope and trust…

The X-Files “Founder’s Mutation” Review

Welcome back, The X-Files. Welcome back unexplained phenomena, welcome back Skinner with his awful poker face, welcome back Mulder jumping to conclusions. Welcome back, The X-Files. We’d really, really missed you. Episode Two couldn’t have been more different from the…

‘The X-Files’ 10×01 Review “My Struggle”

It’s been a while. In fact, it’s been too long. Twenty three years ago, I saw the second episode of the X-Files, “Deep Throat,” the day after it aired. I’ve been a fan ever since. As such, it’s hard to…

‘Once Upon A Time’ – I’m Thankful for Robin Hood

More than a Disney kid, I was a books kid. Sure, I watched the pre-requisite Disney movies, but even when I was very, very young, I didn’t need visuals to fall in love with a character. Words worked just fine…
