It’s easy to criticize other people’s work. Hell, it’s a lot more simple than praising it sometimes, but in the case of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER SEASON EIGHT I really had to struggle to come up with a legitimate list of ten things that could have either been handled better, or been left out of the forty issue story arc all together (CLICK HERE to read our Top 10 Good Things about BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER – SEASON 8). SEASON EIGHT was an enjoyable return of much loved characters both heroes and villains, and it was nice to see the […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – SEASON 1 – “Wouldn’t It Be Nice (If We Were Human)”

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta, Andreas Apergis Writer: Chris Dingess Director: Jerry Ciccoritti Network: Syfy, Airs Monday nights Airdate: February 7, 2011 So far, the U.S. BEING HUMAN is following the broad strokes of the U.K. original. “Wouldn’t It Be Nice (If We Were Human)” expands a bit on the werewolf education subplot by having the mentor figure, here called Ray (Andreas Apergis), turn out to be violently anti-vampire, which provides a bit of extra suspense here. Of course, werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington) doesn’t know this about Ray when Ray introduces himself – in […]Read On »

TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 2- “Daddy Issues”

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is a show that has really grown into one of my weekly must-watch shows. I was never a devotee of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER or CHARMED or even ANGEL, I didn’t really discover series like that until much later on DVD. Having said that, I started with episode one of DIARIES, simply because it came on when I needed a genre show to watch since TRUE BLOOD was on hiatus. I admit I wasn’t instantly sucked into the show, I had to warm up to it, but the series has definitely found its pacing and its overreaching arcs and everything runs like a well-oiled machine.

The X List: Top 10 Good Things About BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER – SEASON 8 comics

When approaching a list with the title: “The top ten good things about BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER – SEASON 8 comics,”  a person has to stop and really consider the subject matter. A normal season of a television show is just that: one season, or a year, or 23 or so episodes. Well, BUFFY – SEASON EIGHT started in 2007 and just finished in 2011. That’s a long storyline to keep track of with lots of BUFFY alum scribes, and other comic writers coming and going to keep the stories fresh and interesting. For the most part “Season Eight” has […]Read On »

It’s not that there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just that the U.K. series is still so fresh in our minds – and about to head into Season Three as we speak. Plus, it’s damn good. You never want […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Grace Moretz, Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas Writer: Matt Reeves, based on the screenplay and novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist Director: Matt Reeves Distributor: Overture Films Release Date: October 1st, 2010 Director/screenwriter Matt Reeves is fairly faithful to the story, characters and even environment in LET ME IN, his English-language version of the 2008 Swedish horror film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. Seeing the original, it was very hard to imagine the movie being made in the U.S., and filmmaker Reeves has tilted one element of the story to make it creepier and ever so […]Read On »
