DEXTER: Remember the Monsters? (Article) - 9/24/2013 12:15:23 PM

Just got done watching it and was dissapointed.   I agree there were a lot scenes where logic or believability had to be put aside to advance the plot.   Though I think when Quinn said "Looks like self defence to me," was more along the lines of "that piese of sh!t needed to die, so I don't care how it happened.  We look after our own." 

After Dexter dumped Deb, I thought  he might either cut his own wrists or neck and end in a pool of his blood, since the blood was a big obsession for him.  

Normally you would think Miami Metro would suspect Dexter of being alive and start looking for him.  Elway is eventaully going to come to, and notify law inforcement that Hanna was fleeing with Harrison, thus tying Dexter to her and making the lack of finding his body suspect.  But, they show the cops to be inept at times so maybe they never piece it together.

On the final scene, I was half- expecting to see Dexter to kill an innocent.  That he now is a total monster with no compass.  Not even that, just a blank stare.  Maybe they did that as if to leave it up to the viewer.  A very Sopranos like ending, and we know how well that went over.

Looks like the best show endings I can think of off the top of my head are MASH and The Office.  I guess Fringe ended ok considering they were not sure if they were getting that final season.   If Supernatural had ended at its original ending of season five like planned it would have been good.  It really is hard for for great shows to come up with a good ending since so many have failed.

TV Wasteland: "His name was Phil..." (Article) - 9/23/2013 7:28:37 AM

Wonder if its going to be weird that SHIELD won't be able to use mutants at all due to the licensing issues.  I read that they won't even mention mutants in the show. 

New Batman: Arkham Origins Trailer (Article) - 9/2/2013 12:59:23 PM

 I rented Arkham Asylum, but bought the Game of the Year edition of Arkham City with all the extra content.  May do that for this one too.

TV Wasteland: Farewell Futurama (Article) - 9/2/2013 12:56:53 PM

 Go Rams!  Big sports fan here too.  

Just watched several eps of Futurama off the DVR a few days ago.  It was the fan's favorites and all were pretty good choices.  I don't think I've watched the Simpsons in many years.  

I would have to say it was Cartoon Network playing syndicated eps of Futurama and getting good ratings that probably had something to do with it coming back.  

TV Wasteland: Too Darn Hot (Article) - 7/29/2013 10:12:33 AM

The problem with The Venture Bros. is that there is not enough of it.

Warehouse 13: The Truth Hurts Review (Article) - 7/10/2013 7:18:19 AM

Skipped the review since I'm still a few eps behind on my watching.   I see in redhairs comment that they are going to make us wait almost a year to finish the season?  Well in that case, I'm just going to hold off on the 4 eps I have on the DVR.  I'll watch them in June of 14.

OLDBOY 2013 Poster (Article) - 7/10/2013 7:14:52 AM

I'm probably in the minority but I just didn't care for the original.  I remember a few years ago it was recommended to me a lot so I watched it.  I just figured the fact I didn't really like it to difference in culture and some of the main plot points seeming far fetched to me, though truth to tell I don't recall the details that well now. 

Under the Dome: Pilot Review (Article) - 6/27/2013 9:14:08 AM

I haven't read the books and I missed the premiere, so the review and coments make me think I should look it up.  I have had the Dark Tower/Gunslinger novels for awhile but just have not started them yet for some reason or other. 

As far as books go, it is ok to read them once in a while and they are actually  almost always better than the media that is based off them.  I would say the early seasons of True Blood the show were written much better than the books, however the show tended to diverge down to the books amatuerish writting.

Game Of Thrones: Mhysa Review (Article) - 6/12/2013 6:47:33 AM

MrJawbreakingEquilibrium I'm guessing what you think happened in Dance, but I'd have to say that one is not clear cut like others.  There is plenty of evidence in the books that when combined with tidbits from GRRM's interviews/question sessions that point to that event not ending like similar ones. 

Game Of Thrones: Mhysa Review (Article) - 6/10/2013 2:45:16 PM

SPOILER  to Hanso.  They haven't really stated exactly how strong Bran's Warging abilities are, but they are pretty strong.  He is able to take control of Hodor easily, that could be due to Hodor being somewhat simple minded.  I believe he has more skill at his age than Varamyr Six Skins had when Jon ran him through. 

End SPOILER
