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 […]


The Terror Review: Death and Starvation in “The C, the C, the Open C”

by Jeff Fountainon May 15, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* As predicted, the cannibalism comes out in full force this week and although it was foreshadowed numerous times, it was still horrifying to watch. That, coupled with saying goodbye to a few more characters made this a fascinating and disturbing episode, as The Terror continues to up the ante in terms of new […]

Review: The Terror Delivers a Disturbing and Haunting Episode in “A Mercy”

by Jeff Fountainon May 2, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* My biggest concern for The Terror has always been how they could possibly manage to keep up the high levels of fear, terror, and dread that has been building each and every episode. To this end, “A Mercy” seemed to highlight those fears, as it began with a rather slow and plodding […]


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. […]

The Terror Review: Attacks on the Crew Ramp up the Fear in “Punished, As A Boy”

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. Foolish at the best of times, reckless and driven by his ego at the worst, Franklin’s death puts more pressure on Captain Francis Crozier to formulate a plan of rescue while trying to stave […]


The Terror Review: Tensions Hit New Heights in ‘The Ladder’

by Jeff Fountainon April 10, 2018
Not only does the crew of both the HMS Terror and Erebus find themselves stuck in the ice for the winter and hunted by who knows what, but they also have a captain who is more concerned about his ego than doing the right thing. This just adds to the overall tension and while it […]

by Jeff Fountainon March 27, 2018
What happens when you stick over one hundred men on two ships and strand them in possibly the most unforgivable environment on the planet? Welcome to AMC’s new show The Terror, which is based loosely on the true life story of an 1845 expedition by the ships Terror and Erebus to find the Northwest Passage, […]

Recently we had the opportunity to talk with Adam Nagaitis about his experience working on the terrifying new AMC show The Terror. How did you end up in the world of acting? Was it something you always wanted to do? Adam: I think I just sort of fell into it, to be honest. I don’t […]
