The Big Debate: Is WWE Fake?

Lately, I have taken an unexpected twist in television entertainment and set up WWE’s Monday Night Raw to record on my DVR. Ever since I started to watch the show, I have gotten comments from friends and family saying “You know that’s fake, right?” or “WWE is just a male soap opera.” The people making these claims are comparing WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) to MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), which is technically like comparing apples and … Read more

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 Ryan Hardy does later in the episode to solve one of the FBI’s dilemmas.  Then again, it could be about … Read more

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 deserted when Rick awoke in the hospital so long ago. As they travel the empty road, the small group passes … Read more

Following the Robot Combat League

This week the premiere of Robot Combat League aired on SyFy and the show brings the world of robot combat to a whole new level.  Unlike previous robot combat shows, this one is very much similar to the movie Real Steel with 7-8′ tall metal robots that are controlled by two human operators.  One who controls the legs and movement of the robot, while the other has a control system that attaches to their arms … Read more

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 want to scream.  I’m getting ahead of myself though. The prison group seems to be at ease with themselves at … Read more

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 some characters have gone.  I also think a serious show down is coming soon between the two groups. Rick’s delusions … Read more

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 attempt, albeit with a small group; and for Carroll’s followers threats and lies. Emma, Paul, and Jacob awake in the … Read more

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 murder way back in history.  Whatever Mad Love was about it was another eye opener on at least one character … Read more

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 direction for several characters. We pick up right where we left off in Made to Suffer, with Merle and Daryl … Read more

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 reinforces the “don’t trust anyone” theme that is playing through this twisted tale. We know now that Rick prefers burning … Read more

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 an alias; and how Joey’s abduction is being handle.  Plus there is the introduction of Debra Parker, who replaced Jennifer … Read more

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 Friday January 25).  Now, is it just those who have seen the show?  Good, here we go. The Following is … Read more

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 not just in the “keep it from the cops” underground but, actually in an abandoned subway tunnel.  Apparently, kids who … Read more

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, needed to band together to beat the Garuda at the end of last season.  However, Bo finally tapped into her … Read more

The Walking Dead: Made to Suffer Recap

The midseason finale (as AMC is calling it) of The Walking Dead episode, Made to Suffer, definitely left fans on the edge of their seat.  It is almost cruel the way we have to wait until February.  What’s worse is, right now the actual date is not on the AMC website so it could be the end of February not the beginning.  Until then, let’s look at this week’s episode. The first people we see … Read more

The Walking Dead – When the Dead Come Knocking Recap

I have to question the group in this week’s episode of The Walking Dead because they didn’t seem to be thinking clearly.  If you didn’t see the episode, When the Dead come Knocking, you missed some pretty significant lead-ups to the mid-season finale next week.  Plus a surprise return for the group. As the show opens we learn that Merle is still a heartless bastard who thinks he’s better than everyone else.  Nothing has changed … Read more

The Walking Dead – Hounded Recap

I’m not sure what to think of this week’s The Walking Dead; so much happened although not really that much.  However, I think what did was significant in several ways.  Some people lost, some found, and a whole lotta trouble coming at the main group. After last week’s episode with Rick answering a phone ringing in the prison, listening to him speak with a female who stated they were safe but wouldn’t say where they … Read more

Take My Love – Firefly Anniversary

Watching all 14 episodes of a short-lived but well-loved show like Firefly can be difficult, especially on the 10-year anniversary of the show.  However, it is also nice to know this show still has the appeal it did all those years ago, and possibly even more now as the fan base continues to grow. Sunday November 11 was a very special day for Firefly fans as Science aired all 14 episodes in order to celebrate … Read more

The Walking Dead – Say the Word Episode Recap

This week’s The Walking Dead episode left viewers with some very interesting questions.  Plus a few revelations, or was it only one revelation?  No matter the main group dynamic is changing and Andrea needs to watch herself. If remember the week before, Rick lost it when he found out that Lori had delivered by C-section but not survived.  This week he seems to have taken a total loss of his senses as he rushes into … Read more

The Walking Dead – Separation and Reunion

If you haven’t seen the last two episodes of The Walking Dead, stop reading right now, go watch them, and then come back.  Unless you are one of those people who don’t mind spoilers, then read on. Last week we finally got to see Michonne and Andrea’s story and boy was it, interesting.  Merle, who was thought to be dead by the group after Rick left him handcuffed to a pipe where Walkers found him, … Read more
