The new fall TV season has started and quite frankly, there are just too many shows on now. I can only watch so many in any one week and I’m almost certain half of these shows will be kicked to the curb within the first 6-8 weeks, but for now here are my thoughts on a few of the new additions to the fall TV line-up.
Probably the series I enjoyed more than anything else I’ve watched thus far, this is the continuation of the 2011 movie starring Bradley Cooper, who also makes a cameo appearance. Not to get too long in the tooth in this mini-review, but I felt that it had established a pretty good place to jump off from. You have the reason, the how and soon the what of the story. Meaning, we’ve established that Brian Finch had a valid reason for taking the NZT drug that gave him his super intelligence. We know that due to his super intelligence he’ll be working with the FBI to solve a string of high-profile cases over the season. However, we don’t know who is supplying the NZT nor what the overall arc of the show will be outside of the mystery supplier. So, now Senator Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) is enlisting Brian to do be his eyes, ears and hands to do – something – for him. So, the mystery is afoot. It’s an arms race in the “intelligence” market and I’ll be sticking around to find out what happens.

Over the last decade, the networks have realized that summertime doesn’t mean it has to be the wasteland of reruns and fall season longings. The first show I remember being a hallmark of the summer TV season was The Howard Stern Show (WWOR) back in the summer of 1990. That landmark of sophistication aside, networks started finding value and viewers during the longer summer months. … Continue reading 9 TV Shows That SHOULD Be On Your DVR List
I love my #geek life right now. (Happy Dance) Disclaimer: The only show I didn’t really watch last season was the CW’s “iZombie” series which is loosely based on the DC Comic of the same name. I watched the first episode and it felt too much like the zombie version of Veronica Mars and I was never really a fan of that show. Then I … Continue reading Comic Book TV: A Brief Look Back on the 2014-2015 Season
To say that I thought the way Season Three ended with Nick Brody being hung and a pregnant Carrie Mathison trying to honor his sacrifice by using a Sharpie to draw a star for him on the CIA wall of the fallen because they didn’t want to acknowledge him was perfect. Brody, for all of his demons, his lies and disbeliefs, he was still a … Continue reading Homeland – Season 4 Premier Review: “The Drone Queen”/” “Trylon and Perisphere” (A Two Part-traveganza)
When you have children, you always have family. They will always be your priority, your responsibility. And a man, a man provides. And he does it even when he’s not appreciated or respected or even loved. He simply bears up and he does it. Because he’s a man. -Gus/Episode 5 “Mas” What can I say, this show is the bomb. I never really got the … Continue reading 2nd Run TV Review: Breaking Bad Season 3
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season Two/Episode One “Shadows” The Agents are back and the episode starts off with a nice little teaser of Agent Carter and The Howling Commandos in 1945 taking down one of the last known Hydra facilities, capturing high-level Hydra leadership and some extremely dangerous items the Red Skull had planned to use before his demise. In this episode, it centers on item SSR#084, an … Continue reading TV Mini-Reviews: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Gotham – Primer Episodios
As you know from the FB Page, I’m late to the game on Breaking Bad and have been doing a rewind watch of the series from the beginning. I’m really starting to get why this show had (and still has) the faithful following it does. I’m all in at this point. What I really love is that some of the reactions and events, so far, … Continue reading 2nd Run TV Mini-Review: Breaking Bad Season 3.5
