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

The Mysterious Mr. C and I have been pretty good at going through all of the season finales that we had saved on our DVR (though we still have to watch the final two episodes of iZombie), and as such, I was starting to wonder what would be on our schedule this summer! To be sure, we could probably stand to watch a little less television (couldn’t we all?!), but it’s still nice to have some go-to shows that you look forward to seeing each week.

Last night, as I perused our upcoming recordings, I realized that I didn’t need to be that worried! Read More

Once Upon a Time

I have long been a fan of revisionist fairy tales. As a kid, some of my favorite books were The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and The Frog Prince, Continued by Jon Scieszka. As a teenager/young adult, I enjoyed watching movies like Ever After, The Princess Diaries, and Enchanted. More recently, I’ve become a fan of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, which, instead of revamping one particular fairy tale, has turned them all on their heads and mushed them into one massive universe. (You can find a fuller recap of each season here.)  Read More

Marvel’s Daredevil

When the Mysterious Mr. C and I remembered that Marvel’s Daredevil was being released on Netflix last Friday, we joked with each other that we knew what we were binge-watching over the weekend, but I don’t think either one of us really thought that we would sit down and watch all 13 episodes in one day! (Note: It was not one sitting as there was a brief pause between Episodes 3 and 4, so we could finish cleaning the apartment.) And yet, that is exactly what we did!

Since I haven’t seen the 2003 film version of Daredevil, I asked C if he wanted to write a review of the show instead. He responded with: “Why?” After I explained that it was because he could better compare the two, he simply chuckled and said: “Oh, there is no comparison!” Read More
