About Diane Brunner

I have been a gamer for over 20 years. My preference is RPG, fighter, action, adventure, defense, and strategy although I will play just about anything. I also prefer console to PC gaming. Depending on what interests me, I watch TV and movies. Some things every week or when its new and others as they catch my fancy. Here I prefer dramas, fantasy, sci-fi, and action. I also am an avid reader and writer.

The Following – Let Me Go Recap

Let Me Go could mean several things on this week’s The Following episode (sorry about missing last week).  We have Joey still with Emma; although Paul and Jacob seem to be gone for good; Joe Carroll’s transfer, which results in his escape; even the kidnapping of a young woman.  Heck, it could even be what [...]

The Walking Dead – Clear

The Walking Dead is certainly making a few things “Clear” for some of its characters and the viewers this week.  Instead of bouncing between Woodbury and the prison, we follow Rick, Carl, and Michonne as they travel back to the Grimes’ hometown in King County.  Rick knows they will find weapons there since it was [...]

The Walking Dead – I Ain’t a Judas

Andrea is definitely try to prove “I ain’t a Judas” this week on The Walking Dead because she can’t decide who to be loyal too.  The woman who learns the truth about her beloved Governor, he really is a liar and out for blood, just can’t face the idea of leaving him; it makes me [...]

The Walking Dead – Home Recap

The Walking Dead is really good at making you realize no one is safe in this show and Home was no different.  A few truths came out, one we knew about but didn’t realize anyone else did, and one that wasn’t exactly a shocker but at the same time made you realize just how far [...]

The Following – The Siege Recap

One of the definitions of siege is a police operation where the enemy is surrounded in an effort to compel the surrender of an armed person; I have to admit I’m not sure if this week’s The Following episode was named for the FBI or Joe Carroll’s followers.  For the FBI it is a physical [...]

The Following – Mad Love Recap

Can The Following’s Mad Love episode show just how crazy someone can be or is it just me?  Or perhaps the idea is that these people are so unhinged they really don’t know what love is and what infatuation is.  Maybe it was a tribute to what Valentine’s Day started as; you know a mass [...]

The Walking Dead – The Suicide King Recap

As The Walking Dead returns in full force with The Suicide King, it’s clear things are getting worse for everyone and the end of the season may bring some unexpected surprises.  That might be silly to say since most of the episodes have surprises but this one seems to be headed in a really bad [...]

The Following – The Poet’s Fire Recap

Does The Poet’s Fire episode of The Following leave you with the impression that Joe is grooming Emma to take over?  I know I feel that way after watching the episode.  She seems to be in control of the rest of the group, at least what we have seen of it so far.  It also [...]

The Following – Chapter Two Recap

Well The Following is certainly making some people scared to watch the show alone, and Chapter Two has only made this worse.  While this episode starts off a little slower than the first, it does make you sit up and pay attention rather quickly with some background on Emma; since we’ve learned that Denise was [...]

The Following – Pilot Recap

If you didn’t watch the pilot episode of The Following last night and you want to see this show, stop reading right now.  Even if you like spoilers, stop reading!  This is one you want to watch, at least the first episode, to get the full effect of it (Fox is showing it again on [...]

Lost Girl – SubterrFaenean Recap

Lost Girl’s SubterrFaenean reveals some interesting things this week without having a complicated plot.  That is not a bad thing really, just different than some other episodes we have seen in the past.  SubterrFaenean also opens with Kenzi, Vex, and Kenzi’s friend Aussie, instead of Bo. The trio goes to an underground art event, and [...]

Why was Bo a Caged Fae in Lost Girl

After a fairly short break, Lost Girl returned with a huge question for fans, is Bo going to end up bad?  Thus far, she has sided with the Light side in most instances but still not chosen it as her “side”.    This has proven a good thing, especially since the Fae, both Light and Dark, [...]

Warm Bodies Preview

Did you know that the upcoming movie Warm Bodies is loosely based on the famous Shakespeare play “Romeo and Juliet”?  If you didn’t, guess what it is.  Despite actually written for the big screen from the Isaac Marion book of the same name, it is a twisted version of the tragedy everyone loves to hate.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

If you’ve heard about the new movie Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters coming out and wonder how they can make a children’s fairy tale into an adult story, well in this case it’s possible.  It actually isn’t an updated version of the Brothers Grimm tale but an entirely new one.  While the main characters are [...]

The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey Review

The Hobbit, an Unexpected Journey, released Friday to theaters nationwide.  Many of the showtimes were sold out, including the ones late Friday night (and probably Saturday as well).  As the latest film from Peter Jackson, and the first in the newest J.R.R.

The third season of Syfy’s Lost Girl premiers in January.  For fans of the series that follows Fae in the real world, this return is long overdue.  Then again, aren’t they all? In the first two seasons (although the US has only seen season 2), we learned that Bo is a succubus who didn’t know [...]
