The Last Ship Wraps Up After 5 Seasons

The Last Ship Wraps Up After 5 Seasons

For 5 years, The Last Ship has been a staple of Sunday night viewing for me. A show about the last Naval ship fighting to save the world was a little cheesy but fun. Some how they were able to stretch it out 5 seasons, bringing it to a nice conclusion tonight. I felt the last couple season weren’t necessary, inventing new global catastrophes to keep the Nathan James out there in the fight. But it was fun to watch. Thank you for your service, Nathan James.

Farewell, Rick Grimes. I’m Sure You’ll Be Back

Farewell, Rick Grimes. I’m Sure You’ll Be Back

Tonight we say goodbye to Andrew Lincoln in his iconic role as Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead. After 9 years, he’s decided to leave the show.. for now. His last episode left a lot of possibilities for a return, especially if the rating take a dump due to his departure

Despite All The Negative Press, I’m Still Loving The Walking Dead

Despite All The Negative Press, I’m Still Loving The Walking Dead

Still one of the best shows on TV. I agree the past two season with the Negan War have been way to long, but with the Whisperers, The Commonwealth, and the exit of both Maggie and Rick, we might get a new direction and a better focus in the near future.

After Almost Finishing the Trilogy of Books, I’m Pretty Stoked About The TV Adaptation of Justin Cronin’s The Passage

After six months of audiobooks, I’m finally reaching the third book in The Passage trilogy, The City of Mirrors. Judging by the current solicitations and teaser/trailers, it looks like the show with exist mainly in the first third of the first book. Most of the trilogy deals with the time after the vampire outbreak. Gotta wait until January to see what FOX does.

I Don’t Know About Chris Chibnall’s Vision for Doctor Who

I Don’t Know About Chris Chibnall’s Vision for Doctor Who

I don’t know for sure, but Doctor Who seems to be in trouble. I can’t put my finger on it, but there’s something about this new direction by show runner Chris Chibnall that seems to be falling flat. To be clear, Jodie Whittaker’s roll as the Doctor has been the bet thing about Who since David Tennant. But it seems like there isn’t much for her to work with right now. Granted it’s only a few episodes in, but if this week’s episode, Arachnids in The UK doesn’t connect with the audience, the show could be in jeopardy.

My biggest fear is this will give credence to trolls that casting a woman in the lead role would kill the show. The problems with Doctor Who have nothing to do with the actors. The Doctor and her three companions seem to work very well together, and any negative backlash should come nowhere near Jodie Whittaker. I’m hoping that as we near mid-seasons, Chibnall’s got some exciting stuff waiting in the wings.

The Flash Course Corrects With An Awesome Season 5

The Flash Course Corrects With An Awesome Season 5

The last couple of seasons of The Flash have been a rut. But this season, even though the formula seems to be the same, it feels a little fresher. This is still the best of the CW/DC shows. Arrow still seems to be spinning its dark wheels, and Supergirl feels a little ‘lost at sea’ after the first couple of episodes. Maybe is the characters that makes The Speeder’s show stand out. All I know is it’s the only DC show I look forward to watching (and yes, I include Black Lightning in that group).

Uncovering Your Dead Wife’s Double Life in ITV’s Strangers

Uncovering Your Dead Wife’s Double Life in ITV’s Strangers

My wife started watching this show first, and tried to get me on board. It took me a few weeks to catch the first episode. I have tons of movie and shows in the queue. But after that first episode, I was hooked. I should’ve known. Anything with John Simm (Doctor Who, Prey) is going to be good, And with an impending tragic twist coming up (I was partially spoiled by youtube) I’m all-in on this one,

Black Lightning’s Back And Heavy On The Social Commentary

Black Lightning’s Back And Heavy On The Social Commentary

The CW’s 5th DC Comics series, Black Lightning shouldn’t be as good as it is. I think keeping itself initially cornered off from the rest of the Arrowverse has allowed them to tell socially pertinent stories (race, gangs, war, etc.). And after watching the second season’s first episode it looks like they’re going to stay smart and stay the course. Let’s hope lightning strikes twice.

This Charmed Reboot Has Potential

This Charmed Reboot Has Potential

The original Charmed back in 1998 was one of my guilty pleasures. I’m hoping they can keep some of the old show’s charm (pun intended). I’ll probably watch the first few episodes and then render my judgement.

And Supernatural Returns Once Again

And Supernatural Returns Once Again

I can’t believe this show is starting its 14th season tonight. Once again Sam and Dean find themselves fighting insurmountable odds only to make things worse by the end.

Jodie Whittaker Officially Takes the Reins of Doctor Who

Jodie Whittaker Officially Takes the Reins of Doctor Who

All the controversy about the viability of the first female Doctor will come down to tonight. I don’t think Jodie Whittaker, a fabulous actress will have no problems stepping into the role. The question is will the finicky Whovian fanbase (who don’t really like change) accept her in the role. Episode 1 will be the litmus test.

My Favorite British Drama of The Moment: Press

My Favorite British Drama of The Moment: Press

If you’ve been missing Aaron Sorkin style dramas like West Wing and The Newsroom, BBC is running a gripping new drama called Press, looking at the operations of a Liberal small paper against a huge corporate tabloid.

Season 3 of Van Helsing Is Upon Us

Season 3 of Van Helsing Is Upon Us

After season 1, I thought this show had a lot of potential. By season 2 it seemed the world building had gotten out of hand. I hoping season 3 will course correct and give us a more streamlined show of humans vs. vampires.

Z Nation Is Back for Season 5

Z Nation Is Back for Season 5

This show is a mystery. I don’t know why I like it. With season 5 dropping, I don’t understand why it still exists. It’s batshit crazy and gone off the rails, totally flipping the zombie genre into something new. But it’s part of my Friday viewing tradition.
