Activision’s Call of Duty Global Reveal Offers Fans a Mouth-Watering Treat

Invader Zim is Back… Sort Of

People of Earth! The internet was “invaded” this week (pun intended) by the news that the cult-classic 2001  Nickelodeon  cartoon Invader Zim is making its return as a made-for-TV movie. This seems to be a new trend for the television network as part of an effort to revamp some of their most popular former cartoons into the modern-day, with other titles including Hey Arnorld and Rocko’s Modern Life slated to receive their own TV-movies as well. Invader Zim follows an... Read More

Everything We Know About Destiny’s Rise of Iron DLC

Penny Dreadful, S3 E7 – “Ebb Tide” Review

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from this week’s episode of Penny Dreadful. “Ebb Tide” opens with Lily (Billie Piper) at a graveyard, paying respect to a woman mourning the loss of her child–this token of gratitude only met with a declaration of an impending war. She then lays a wreath down on the grave and begins to cry, “Sara Croft,” presumably her own child. We then find Vanessa (Eva Green), laying in the museum post her romance with Dracula... Read More

Penny Dreadful, S3 E5 – “This World is Our Hell” Review: Ethan’s One Sick Puppy

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from this week’s episode of Penny Dreadful. In an almost complete contrast of the dreariness of London, this episode begins and ends in the West – both how it was won and lost for Ethan Talbot (Josh Hartnett). Alongside his demonic debutante Hecate (Sarah Green), they overlook the camp fire set by Inspector Bartholomew Rusk (Douglas Hodge) and his men who’re hunting down our dear werewolf. Desperate, as they’re both... Read More

Penny Dreadful, S3 E3 – “Good and Evil Braided Be” Review: Bonds Are Forming, Tensions are Rising

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from this week’s episode of Penny Dreadful. The pacing of “Good and Evil Braided Be” seems much faster than most Penny Dreadful episodes and, perhaps, bursting at the seams with pertinent information pertaining to each character’s next steps-to-be in their character arcs. The lines that were once drawn are now crossed, and it appears that everyone’s right on the cusp of a glorious moment of realization. Where each... Read More

Penny Dreadful, S3 Premiere E1- “The Day Tennyson Died” Review: Dreadfully Delightful

One-hour and a whole separate network channel away from HBO’s Game of Thrones second episode of the new season, we re-entered the dark but never dull world of Penny Dreadful on Showtime. The episode begins with Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), who’s seemingly in a rut, having become something of a recluse. With both her abode and appearance in shambles she seems to be reeling from some form of emptiness and withdrawal, having been formerly sought after by the Devil himself with the aide... Read More
