Halt and Catch Fire Season 4

The final season has begun! Season 4 moves the timeline out of the 80’s into the early 90’s (my best estimation based on the pop culture references is 1993). When we left our quartet they were plotting to start their … Continue reading

Orphan Black <> Season 5 and Series End

I don’t have much to say as I think Orphan Black went out on top. This show went to some crazy places and largely stayed strong through its entire run. 50 episodes over five seasons. That’s a long time to … Continue reading

Arrival

Good sci-fi is hard to come by because it’s a difficult genre to crack. But when it happens, man is it a treat. Arrival is one such success. When 12 alien space craft land on Earth, humanity is put on … Continue reading

Bloodline Season 3 <> Series Finale

I’m a big fan of Bloodline and waited to watch the last season because I wasn’t ready for the end. With 10 episodes, it’s the shortest run so there was that much less to anticipate. So did they stick the … Continue reading

TV and movie round up

Orange is the New Black- Season 5 was overall good. It felt rather slow as a whole (a problem of too many characters) with bits of greatness spread around. The last three episodes felt like the best and most engaging part … Continue reading

This season flew by and gadzooks was it good. Rock solid storytelling made all the more impressive considering how many characters are involved. The main hook for the show is its ties to Breaking Bad and they put in some … Continue reading
