The Walking Dead: “Time for After”

Next week, The Walking Dead will air its mid-season finale. Whether it leaves us awestruck, or limps across the finish line remains to be seen, but with the (temporary) end looming, it’s time for a place-setting episode. I’ve griped about these in the past, in reviews of almost every show I’ve written about here. But they’re... Read More | Share it now!

The Walking Dead: “The Big Scary U”

Margaux rejoins me to talk about last night’s Negan-heavy episode of The Walking Dead.  Trevor: Am I losing my mind, or have the last two episodes of The Walking Dead been kinda good? Don’t get me wrong, both “The Big Scary U” and “Some Guy” have their issues, but they’re much better than early-season entries like “Monsters.”... Read More | Share it now!

The Walking Dead: “Some Guy”

If I’ve made one thing perfectly clear over the last few weeks, it’s that I have a dislike for certain things: season eight of The Walking Dead, and the character Ezekiel therein. The novelty has worn off, the bloom is off the rose, and last week I even found him to be comical, as he is the only dipshit in the Kingdom to talk the way he... Read More | Share it now!

The Walking Dead: “Monsters”

My word, what a frustrating episode. The Walking Dead might be one of those shows that would benefit from a mandatory change of showrunner every few seasons. When Scott Gimple took the reins in season three, the change in quality was palpable, and in his tenure he’s delivered some of the show’s all-time greatest episodes, like...

Halt and Catch Fire: “Search” / “Ten of Swords”

Margaux and I say goodbye forever to Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: It’s fitting that Halt and Catch Fire’s final two episodes would be all about saying goodbye. In “Search,” Donna worries that she’s losing her family: Gordon is dead, and Joanie is going to China. Cameron is leaving Comet after a short stint as chief coder, and even Bos...

Halt and Catch Fire: “Goodwill”

Margaux and I bid discuss a devastating episode of Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: This was a rough one – and I mean that in a good way. “Goodwill” was such a stark, forthright look at grief and loss that it was hard to watch (again, in a good way). This reminded me of last season’s brilliant finale “NeXT”; this too was... Read More | Share it now!

31 Days of Fright: A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

“I can sleep. I just don’t want to.” It’s starting to become conventional, accepted wisdom that there is, at times, good reason to remake a film. Maybe it’s because the original was garbage, in which case, go for it – for instance, I have no objection to the Friday the 13th remake, because Friday is the worst movie...
