EPISODE REVIEW: Adventure Time : Mystery Train

scizman's picture

So this weeks Adventure Time wasn’t as in-depth as the last one ,but certainly surprised me in how clever it was. Heck, I think it could have even given Scooby-Doo a run for its money. At least for this episode. This episode reminded me of a episode of King of Hill were Peggy’s Birthday present was a mystery train ride.

Episode Review: V – Laid Bare (Season 2, Episode 3)

Republibot 1.0's picture

I am only a day slow on this. I am getting better. I think I got this recap thing figured out to where I can write it in about 2 hours including viewing time. It helps that the show is terrible, so all I really have to do is note what happens without actually caring and getting caught up in the story. This week’s episode only moves the story incrementally forward even though it feels like a ton of stuff happened.

This week’s episode is called “Laid Bare”, and according to the cable show guide: “Lisa’s body undergoes changes; Anna dispatches Ryan to find Agent Malik after she goes missing.”

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith – Movie Review (**1/2)

Republibot 1.0's picture

Before I begin my review, in the interest of full disclosure, I feel it important to say that even though I am of that generation that grew up with the original Star Wars movies, they were never formational films for me. Actually, Seven Blows of the Dragon was a much more important film in my youth than all three original Star Wars films put together. Granted, I have gone to every movie opening day (with the exception of Episode IV – A New Hope), but that has been more to maintain whatever geek cred I may or may not have had at the time of the various releases than any fanatical need to be the first in line.

War of the Worlds - Movie Review (**)

Republibot 1.0's picture

(I guess while I am on this minor Steven Spielberg rant - here is my review of his War of the Worlds from '05.)

War of the Worlds is a movie with a little black button smack dab in the middle of it. Oh, it’s not a literal or real button or anything like that. It is a figurative button. And even figuratively it isn’t a terribly unique button. Actually, it is a rather drab figurative button and has that dull and slightly scratched look that comes from regular figurative use. It is not a button that you would think an acclaimed director such as Steven Spielberg would ever use, however, there it is.

I’m late. I know. Hopefully, the expectation wasn’t interminable for all of you as you waited for this exciting recap.

This week on a very special episode of “V”: Erica, Ryan and Jack seek out the legendary John May to rescue Georgie; Tyler probes his mysterious past during a confrontation with his mother; Chad visits the mother ship to report on Anna’s Live Aboard program.

Excellent. Let’s get to the nitty gritty, right after the jump.

Episode Review: Lost: "Happily Ever After" (Season 6 Episode 11)

sysadmin 2.0's picture

Since it seems to help the synoptically disadvantaged, tonight's logline reads: Desmond awakens and discovers that he's on the island.

Oh that is Sooo descriptive. It's like "Charlie wakes up to discover he's dead".

Well, what does Desmond discover after his cup o' joe?
Jump to find out. Do I need to say that our recaps contain spoilers? Even after all that time we spent together, watching reruns of the Glen Campbell show, and I told you that he was going to sing "Wichita Lineman"?

I promise. No more Glen Campbell spoilers.

Now Jump!

And welcome back...  According to our always semi-trusty Comcast episode summary for tonight’s return to the weekly trenches of episodic “V”: Val’s pregnancy concerns Ryan; the REstistance inducts a dangerous new member; Anna is puzzled by Chad, who hasn’t scheduled a follow-up for his diagnosis; and Erica gets attacked at home.

So, to take a cue from the ever trusty Republibot 2.0, let’s dive into this with a bit more depth – right after the jump.

Avatar: A Capsule Review by Dr. Charlie Starr

Charlie W. Starr's picture

Avatar on big screen in 3D lives up to the hype. Stunningly beautiful. Cameron succeeds in bringing film to a new level. Will be interesting to see what reaction the film evokes on the small screen (i.e. DVD). As a big screen blockbuster, however, it achieves its goals. The movie is beautiful. Its archetypal motifs are familiar (but then that's what archetypes are). It acheives the effects of mythopoeisis which Lewis and Tolkien wrote so much about--Cameron creates an entire universe, through which the audience gets to walk.

TV REVIEW: Doctor Who: The Next Doctor

sysadmin 2.0's picture

In 1984, I wandered (or was pushed) into a comic book store in Dallas, Texas. Among the bric-a-brac there were several bits of memorabilia that featured a bug-eyed man with a big grin, big hat and ridiculously long scarf. "That", someone explained to me, "Is. The. Doctor." In the next breath it was explained to me that although the name of the show is 'Doctor Who' , that is not the character's name, but an in-joke.

A show that had an obscure in-joke as it's name was too nifty an idea to pass up, so I started watching on the local PBS station- and was hooked.

Six Doctors later, I still am. So the prospect of a 'Next Doctor' intrigued me, so I watched the latest incarnation of the Doctor in this years Christmas special.
I'll try to keep this SPOILER free (or at least Spoiler light...)
