Twin Peaks Returning to Television

Earlier today it was announced via a lovely video featuring Laura Palmer and the theme music that Twin Peaks will be returning to television after about 25 years. The new series will air on Showtime and is currently nine episodes long, all written and directed by David Lynch and Mark Frost. We don't know if... Continue Reading →

A tale of two vampires – a Buffyverse hypothesis

Recently I've been rewatching Joss Whedon's amazing Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel series, and I've hit upon something strange when it comes to the vampires in the series. There are a number of "named" vampires throughout the series, but the five with the most screen time are Angel, Spike, Drusilla, Darla, and Harmony. We... Continue Reading →

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – The Clairvoyant Theories

Maybe Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. really is getting better.  Certainly there's been a lot more fan theory on who the Clairvoyant, the mysterious head of the Centipede operation, is, at least among the remaining fans who didn't give up on this series.  However, I believe after Captain America 2 comes out next week, the series will...

The lost shows of the 1980s

I have a good memory, which I've found to my dismay is slowly eroding as I grow older.  But I still cling to childhood memories, and as any reader of this blog will well know, I love to share those precious fragments of recollection.  Today I'd like to share some memories of old tv shows...

Could Twin Peaks Return?

I love Twin Peaks, the quirky early 90s show by David Lynch and Mark Frost that explored a small mountain town, a murder, an FBI agent with a desperate love of coffee, and a woman with a log.  It was ahead of its time, a drama that would fit in nicely with shows like Lost,... Continue Reading →

Hellraiser TV show? Uh…o.k. found an interesting tidbit at the bottom of an article in Variety.  Apparently, RHI Entertainment (whoever the hell that is), which is now known as Sonar Entertainment, is developing a television show based on the Hellraiser movies. Two things immediately spring to mind.  The first is that you can't possibly do justice to Hellraiser... Continue Reading →

A Tale of Two Dexters

It seems fitting that following my comparison of Jack Torrance from The Shining I should move on to another killer (though to be honest, Jack Torrance in the novel/mini-series didn't kill anyone).  Today, therefore, I'm going to take a look at one of my favorite characters and his depiction on screen versus in print.  That's...

First post of 2012 – Burn Notice is the new MacGyver

Happy 2012.  O.k., now that that is over with, let's talk about one of my new favorite TV shows, Burn Notice. I had a lot of time over the New Years weekend to watch the show and so far I've gotten through the first two seasons.  I came to realize something after the first couple... Continue Reading →

From the dim recesses of memory, the pink one eyed GI Joe monster

Comics Alliance has an article about an episode of GI Joe I only vaguely remember. Let me cover the highlights - Lady Jane inherits a Scottish castle, goes to check it out, and stumbles across masked druids worshiping Cthulhu Barbie. No, seriously, it's a pink, one eyed, tentacle monster: As Comics Alliance points out, pretty... Continue Reading →

Tim Curry, Pennywise, and Stephen King’s IT

I happened to stumble on these scans from an old issue of Fangoria magazine posted a few years back on Stephen King's official forum.  It's an interview with Tim Curry that discusses both Rocky Horror and his role as Pennywise the clown from IT. Fascinating stuff here.  A little difficult to read in spots, but... Continue Reading →
