I wrote a song, bitches!

And I’m finally writing another blog post…umm….people.  Yeah!

This episode was about the fun, fun world of second chances and those who take them or throw them away.  Continue reading

Fools making it up as they go along

This episode of Treme was particularly heavy and I’m not sure how I feel about it.  One comment I’ve found on a number of tv related blogs is that the pacing was too fast to give the proper amount of focus to the more serious elements.  I tend to agree.  It seemed like we were in for another character building episode of fast-paced scenes, when all of a sudden, we have a normal-paced rape-scenario.  Let’s talk about that, shall we?

It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing

It’s spring again and, in my house, that means Treme is back!  This is a very good thing, because I’ve missed the soundtrack and the characters.  I’ve decided that, in doing these reviews, I’m not going to formally retrace what happened last season; I’m going to assume that you, having decided to read a blog on the second season of a show, will have watched the first.  Continue reading

The human part… that doesn’t come back

The last episode of the first season of The Walking Dead is interesting fodder for viewers who enjoy a philosophical discussion about life (Is this a life?  What makes us human? Are humans merely the sum of their decisions?  Is there something more?).  Continue reading

You had this coming

First off, I’d like to apologize for my absence the last couple of weeks.  I have a good excuse however: I got married.  In other news, the holidays took over my life and it’s only now beginning to be return to normalcy.  In any case, I think that it’s time to get back to the zombies and to ripping apart Walking Dead’s plot line, etc.  Good times.  🙂 Continue reading

No crying in the boat

This episode was another example of how much this series kicks butt.  It was thought-provoking, full of action (in unexpected and expected ways), intriguing character turns, and some of the best use of contrast I’ve seen. Continue reading

I ain’t never going to beg you!

This episode blew my mind.  For the first time in a long time while watching the tube, I stared at the TV and thought “Holy CRAP! That was AWESOME”. Continue reading

…everybody knows their jobs

Woah.  Not everyone likes sex with their zombies, but I have to say that this was an intense beginning of this week’s episode.  Besides the obvious correlation between the “little death” of orgasm and the real threat of death that faces the “base camp” of humans on the edge of Atlanta and the wilderness, Laurie and Shane’s tumble in the woods also proves how animal-like humans can become when faced with the harsh realities of a world where there may be no morning.  Continue reading
