Review: The Terror Digs Deeper into the Dread in ‘First Shot A Winner, Lads’

by Jeff Fountainon April 24, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* After this episode, we will be halfway through this mini-series and seriously, I can’t figure out how the showrunners will make things any bleaker than they already are. I mean, I’m all for dread, terror, and fear but what these two crews have been through already is horrifying, to say the least. […]

by Jeff Fountainon April 17, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* Well, Captain Sir John Franklin is dead and honestly, the men under his command are probably better for it.

Review: The Walking Dead Sets Some Nasty Business in Motion with ‘Do Not Send Us Astray’

by Jeff Fountainon March 26, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* Even though there were a few head-scratching moments, this week’s episode of The Walking Dead saw a plan being executed that will have far-reaching consequences down the road.

Review: The Walking Dead Introduces New People and Old Bad Habits in “The Key”

by Jeff Fountainon March 19, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* This was a strange episode. There were two storylines that were tied into one another and another with brand new people involved. Weird cut scenes, strange staging in terms of action, horrible marksmanship and an annoying character rearing her head again. That being said, the episode itself wasn’t bad, just too many old […]

Review: The Walking Dead Returns to its Erratic Behavior in “Dead or Alive Or”

by Jeff Fountainon March 12, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* While I will say that this is now three good episodes in a row, a shocking development for The Walking Dead these days, “Dead or Alive Or” was a little off compared to the last two. Some annoying characters reared their ugly heads again, a few of whom could be killed off […]

by Jeff Fountainon March 2, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* There have been numerous episodes that explore this territory, both on The X-Files and many other shows. What made this episode wonderful was watching Mulder and Scully interact with each other on a level we’ve rarely seen, all the while trying to avoid machines hunting them down, thanks to a poor dining […]

Review: The Walking Dead Returns with an Efficient and Emotional Episode in “Honor”

by Jeff Fountainon February 26, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* We all knew it was the end for Carl after it was discovered he had been bitten in the last episode before the break. (Actually, if they had found a way to have him survive I would have been done with the show) With it being confirmed by Chandler Riggs himself and the […]
