The 100 (Season 1)

The CW

Last fall, as the few shows that the Mysterious Mr. C and I watch on a regular basis were airing their winter finales, I was struck by the fact – once again – that there isn’t too much that qualifies as “Must See TV” for us anymore. It’s a bit ironic, since so many people talk about the past few years as the second golden age of television, but things just weren’t catching our interest. Even shows like The CW’s The Flash, which we still watch fairly regularly, are viewed more out of habit than anything else. So when I fell in love with Syfy’s Incorporated, I was super excited to tell you guys about it! Then, I learned it had been cancelled and felt like I was starting from scratch all over again.  Read More

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

So, I’ve got to be honest: My thoughts on the CW’s newest foray into the superhero genre – DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – have been a little all over the place, which is partly why it has taken me so long to review the show. While the Mysterious Mr. C and I watched the introductory special that aired on January 19 and saw the first episode of the pilot shortly after its premiere, Legends didn’t seem to catch our attention enough to tune in with any sort of regularity. But since I’ve been trying to give shows a few episodes to find their footing, I wanted to catch up before passing judgment.  Read More

Fear the Walking Dead

When The Walking Dead first premiered on AMC in 2010, I wasn’t really into the whole zombie thing. While I had certainly seen movies like 28 Days Later and Shaun of the Dead, they weren’t my typical go-to when I was in need of a scary movie fix. My coworkers, on the other hand, were a completely different story and after hearing them rave about the show, I decided to check it out. I valiantly gave it eight episodes – all of season one and then some of season two – but the show was just too dire for me.

Fast forward five years (several more viewings of Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, and Warm Bodies; a full season of iZombie; and a zombie panel at Awesome Con) and it’s safe to say I’ve been converted… mostly. Read More

2015 Fall Television Preview

Warning: There are some mild spoilers in this, so proceed at your own risk!

While the Mysterious Mr. C and I have a full queue of television shows set to record on our DVR this fall, I must admit, there aren’t too many series that I am really excited about seeing. Don’t get me wrong, I am certainly looking forward to having new shows and episodes to watch, but I would classify my feelings as more intrigued than anything else.  Read More

2014-15 Television Wrap-Up

Warning: There are some mild spoilers in this, so proceed at your own risk!

Alright, I know this list is a bit delayed considering the fact that most of the television season finales aired at least a month or two ago, but I wasn’t quite ready to accept the fact that I wouldn’t get new episodes until September and was savoring the shows I had saved on our DVR. However, since Comcast is making us switch out our recorder, I’ve been doing my best to work through all of the shows and movies that are still in our queue.  Read More
