American Gods “Git Gone” Review: I Needed Craft Supplies…

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from episode four of Starz’ adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. Here we encounter our first true deviation from the original American Gods novel and yet, with not one line written by author Neil Gaiman, he says it’s his favorite episode.  The viewer gets to delve into Laura Moon‘s back story, with a compelling performance by Emily Browning, but is it the Laura we are looking for? The opening scene shows an... Read More

Exclusive Interview with Kevin Altieri, Batman: The Animated Series Director

For any comic book fan growing up in the 90s, there was one definitive shared after-school ritual: Watching Batman: The Animated Series on Fox. The Warner Bros. Animation cartoon series ran from 1992 to 1995, and yet in just those three years it redefined the capped crusader in more ways than we could list here and introduced an entire new generation to the greater DC Comics universe. Borrowing from the aesthetic style and tone of the two Tim Burton Batman films, Batman: The Animated Series... Read More

American Gods “The Bone Orchard” Review: The Brave New World

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from the series premiere of American Gods. Oh, dear nerdy readers, I hope you’re as much a fan of Neil Gaiman as I am, because we’re about to delve into the realm of perhaps his greatest literary accomplishment. The book-to-television adaptation of American Gods has finally arrived on Starz, and you better be damn well thrilled about that! The opening credits alone are rife with iconography, both historical and modern,... Read More

First Defenders Trailer Shows the Bulletproof, Blind Ninja, Glowing Fist, “Classy” Team in Action

The Marvel-Netflix alliance has finally given us a glimpse at the highly anticipated series Defenders has to offer, and it’s a lot. Rather than answering questions, though, it’s only created a flood of new ones. Who is Sigourney Weaver’s character Alexandra, someone big enough to pull the Defenders together?  Where was Stick (Scott Glenn) during all of Iron Fist only to show up now?  Is Elektra’s (Elodie Yung) bound to her Black Sky fate? When does... Read More

Doctor Who “Pilot” Review: Moments in Time

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from the Series 10 premiere of Doctor Who. Let’s start this off by clearing the air with an admission: I was left feeling really underwhelmed by the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas special. It’s not that “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” was a bad episode by any means, although it did feel a bit late hopping on the whole “comic book” train. Nor do I think anyone expected it to measure up against “The Husbands of River Song”—it just... Read More

Squeedly-spooch, Doom Songs, and Waffles: The Top 5 Invader Zim Episodes

Those inept, megalomaniac proclamations of doom, the manic shrill exclamations in the background, and one kid clearly cursed with a really big head not standing between them and global domination. Since it first premiered on Nickelodeon back in 2001, Invader Zim’s been an obsession bordering on practical religion for an endless hoard of GIR (Rikki Simons)-quoting fans. With the recent news that the network finally came to their senses and are bringing back the Irken Invader and company for... Read More

Legion: A Fresh Psychedelic Take on the Superhero Genre

Warning: The following review contains spoilers for the first season of FX’s Marvel series Legion. With the release of its groundbreaking psychedelic superhero series Legion, FX continues to prove itself to be innovators and one of the best networks on Television. If you haven’t seen it, stop reading this now, go watch, and leave your expectations at the door–you’ll thank me later. Far from your typical superhero saga, this acid trip of a show is less X-Men and more Pink... Read More

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

One of the Four People Trapped in this Elevator is the Devil! 

Hah, nah, we’re not talking about another M. Knight Shyamalan flick! All jokes aside, we were finally given a real teaser for the upcoming Netflix original show The Defenders yesterday, featuring all four members of the New York team awkwardly standing in an elevator.  While the brief clip didn’t reveal much, it certainly served to push momentum forward and gauge interest in the upcoming ensemble series. Off the heels of Iron Fist (the last official Defender to début on... Read More
