Better Call Saul Review: Weaknesses Are Exposed in “Breathe”

by Jeff Fountainon August 14, 2018
One of the reasons I love this show is not only are the acting and writing excellent, but the characters are so flawed, so damaged, you really feel for them, even when they don’t deserve an ounce of pity. In “Breathe” we see a mix of deserved sadness, head shaking moments and heaps of dramatic […]

Fear the Walking Dead Review: A Long Look in the Mirror in “People Like Us”

by Jeff Fountainon August 13, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD*   Killing off two main characters in the first half of a season is a big statement, hopefully centering on the strength of the show and not for shock value. As we start the second half of season four, “People Like Us” is a reminder of just how good Fear the Walking […]

Better Call Saul Review: Brilliant Acting, Writing Kick Off Season Four in “Smoke”

by Jeff Fountainon August 7, 2018
How much stress can one man take? How far down must he fall before he throws in the towel and embraces that darker side of himself, the one we all have within us? In “Smoke”, Jimmy truly begins that journey, the one that has been coming through three seasons, and it’s in the ashes of […]

Preacher Review: A Strange But Fun Time in “Hitler”

by Jeff Fountainon August 6, 2018
Preacher has always been about going places no other show would dare. When it’s at its best, this show is entertaining, shocking and a whole lot of fun. However with “Hitler”, the showrunners seem to be holding onto the reins so to speak, going to the edge but not quite over, which also hurt some […]

Preacher Review: Fun for Everyone in “Les Enfants du Sang”

by Jeff Fountainon July 30, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* It seems the goal of this week’s episode was to let each character have at least one great line and to that end, mission accomplished. What was even better though was the free-flowing comedy at every turn, something that’s been missing as of late, while at the same time the viewers got […]

Preacher Review: Things Heat Up, Literally, in ‘The Tombs’

by Jeff Fountainon July 16, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* More Tulip, some fight club action in the tombs and the return of our favorite gunslinger from hell made for an interesting episode this week. However, the quest to find God seems to have fallen by the wayside while Jesse sorts out his family problems and Tulip and Cassidy fight to survive. […]

Preacher Review: Tulip To The Rescue in ‘Gonna Hurt’

by Jeff Fountainon July 10, 2018
After two exciting, interesting and extremely fun episodes to open season three, Gonna Hurt was a bit of a step backward in story and energy, except for Tulip who singlehandedly saved the episode from being simply average. There were some interesting bits to be sure but too many recycled plot arcs made it feel like […]

Preacher Review: It’s All About Family in Angelville

by Jeff Fountainon June 25, 2018
It’s funny that out of all the people and obstacles Jesse has faced over the first two seasons of Preacher, his biggest challenge would be facing his family. A return to Angelville, to things he has been running from his whole life, should be very interesting for Jesse and if this season’s first episode is […]

Movie Review: Art of Obsession

by Jeff Fountainon June 14, 2018
Horror is a unique genre that doesn’t have to scare you with just blood and guts. In fact, it’s usually the psychological aspect, be it the inner demon or wondering what the hell is around the corner that makes horror truly terrifying. Writer/ director Ryan M. Andrews takes the ‘screw with your mind’ route and […]
