Almost Human S01E05 – Blood Brothers

  This week we take on the ideas of murder, cloning and a medium psychic (though on a good day, she’s a petite psychic)… Captain Maldonado (Lili Taylor) is in court monitoring the trial of a murderer named Avery (Graham Miller), and awaiting the testimony of two sequestered and protected witnesses. When one of the…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E09 – Repairs

  This week’s episode features a young woman Hannah (Laura Seay),who believes she is being punished by god, and haunted by demons for letting her workmates die in a laboratory explosion.

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E08 – The Well

  Now this is what I’m talking about! Jonathan Frakes directs this week’s episode which comes in as my favorite of the series following the pilot. This week’s episode, The Well, takes place during the clean-up following the events of Thor: The Dark World (which admittedly I still have to get out and see), so…

The Mind Reels chats with Greg Nelson and Adrienne Mitchell – Played

  Sue has been championing CTV’s new show Played to me since it has premiered. I’m a little behind, only being two epsiodes in, but I can already tell you that it’s intelligent, engaging, and features some fantastic acting. Produced by Back Alley films, which also oversaw our much loved Bomb Girls, Played is a…

Sue’s Series Squawk – Played

  I haven’t had time to get caught up on my weekly TV-watching lately, so this week I am going to talk about just one show – the new series on CTV, Played.  This series had my attention right off the bat because a) it’s a Back Alley Films/Muse Entertainment production, and after Bomb Girls,…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E02 – 0-8-4

  The second episode of Whedon’s new series based in the Marvel universe, picks up where last week’s left off, as the team piles onto the Bus to investigate the 0-8-4, which no one knows what it means, as it can mean a plethora of things. In this case, it is a piece of Hydra…

The Following – S0E01&E02 – Thoughts So Far

Serial killers have always fascinated the darker parts of our psyches, what makes people such monsters? We’ve learned that most serial killers hunt alone, but what if one was so charming, so intelligent that he cultivates other souls like him, so adept at making his murders art, that he developed a following? Creepy right? That’s the launching…

Once Upon A Time – Season 2 – Episode 1 – Broken

  My excitement level for the return of OUAT has been pretty extreme as of late, and I geared up even more for the season 2 premiere last night by watching the hour-long recap episode that aired right before it, as well!  Two hours’ worth of magic, mystery and mayhem – could a Sunday night…

Fan Expo Day 2

Sue and I checked in bright and early at the Media Desk for Day 2 of Fan Expo 2012. After such an awesome start yesterday we couldn’t wait to see where this day took us… First off, we decided to prowl the floor, and take in the incredible deigns, sets, sketches and armatures of Disney’s Frankenweenie exhibit….
