From 2005 to 2008, Nickelodeon was home to a series called Avatar: The Last Airbender.  The series was critically acclaimed and was nominated for (and won!) several awards. Critics and viewers alike seemed to adore the series, and yet… I never did get around to watching it.

Thankfully, this changes now. I am currently in possession of the entire series of A:TLA, and its spinoff series, The Legend of Korra. With all this animated goodness at my fingertips, I’m setting off on a quest to watch the entire thing and chronicle the journey. If for no other reason than I think it’ll be fun and just maybe I’ll entertain a few people along the way. (more…)

We know what happened to Rick, Carl, and Michonne after the fall of the prison, but what about the others? This week we find out what exactly happened to the rest of the surviving gang, including some faces that I really wasn’t expecting. Also, was it just me, or was there a lot of zombie head-bashing going on in this episode? Let’s check out episode 4.10, “Inmates.”

Greetings my precious little dead-heads. Remember all those months ago when I swore that I was going to pick these weekly reviews back up for season 4? Well then I decided that quitting my job, packing up my entire life, and moving to a different state would be an even better idea. It may have put a slight kink in my grand TV-watching plans. Particularly the two months without cable. (Oh the horror.) But now I’m settled in and ready to tackle the back half of the season, so let’s do this! We can try to handle the feels together. Of course, the operative word here being try. We all know that I’m never really prepared for this show. Here’s episode 4.09, “After.”

To anyone who actually paid attention to these things, we last left off back in July with season 2, episode 2. That was the point when my need to see the rest of the episodes finally began to outweigh my patience for writing individual reviews. Basically I really wanted to keep marathoning episodes without having to stop and write up recaps in between. Since then, I have blown through the rest of the series, bought the video game and the first two seasons on Blu-ray, and started reading the comics. I think it’s safe to say that at this point, I’ve become a fan.

And with season 4 premiering on Sunday, I decided to dive back into these reviews with the current episodes. So to play catch up, here is one giant review of seasons 2 and 3.

I’ve been a fan of Ricky Gervais for years now, but his new series, Derek, was nothing like I was expecting. And I mean that in the best possible way.

For the past six years, the UK drama Skins has followed the lives of a group of teenagers as they navigate their way through Roundview College. For its seventh and final season, the series deviated from its usual format and is presenting three final episodes, with each episode being released in two separate parts. Each episode will follow the life of a major cast member from past seasons as they move on from their teenage years and begin their adult lives. Episode one, Fire, follows Effy Stonem. Episode two, Rise, will catch up with James Cook. And the final episode, Pure, will follow series 1 and 2 character, Cassie Ainsworth. The tagline for the series claims that time changes everyone. Let’s see if they’re right.
