We learned two things in episode 5 of “The Strain”: making house calls can be dangerous; a Strigoi and a Nazi are both evil creatures, and New York City is in deep guano. Yes, my little blood banks, the Master with Palmer’s help has started a plague that cannot be stopped. What does this have to do with the upcoming eclipse? Plenty! So grab your protective bag of garlic and follow me. Read the rest of this entry
Between the Votanis Collective trying to bomb New York, Amanda’s finding her sister Kenya and that afternoon delight scene between Stahma and Datak, last week’s episode of “Defiance” was very interesting. Everyone is happy except Tommy. Get over it, kid! Will Nolan and Tommy fight over Berlin? Are you curious about Irisa and Sukar’s plans for their posse of alien zombies? Me too, but to tell the truth, I’m more interested in Stahma’s reaction when she learns that Kenya is alive. Let’s pretend to be shrill larvae on the wall and listen in, shall we.

If you’re like me, you use the internet to learn, connect via social media or maybe do some research, but the internet is also used as a tool to reveal the evil activities of corrupt men. By spreading the word, we are able to keep evil in check, right? Eldritch Palmer is well aware of the power of an informed public, and on last week’s episode of “The Strain,” he had his henchwoman, Dutch Velders eliminate the threat. Where does this leave Ephraim and Setrakian? In deep guano if you ask me. I wonder if our lovable Rat Terminator, Vasiliy, has figured out what’s spooked New York’s vermin. Let’s find out after the jump… Read the rest of this entry
In episode six of “Defiance” we had an arkfall and a Gulanee on a rampage, but it was no accident. You can thank the players of the Defiance videogame for that mess. What happens in the game can cross over to the show and vice versa. In episode seven, we dealt with alien cosplay, eye donors and Mercado serenading Christie while Alak bedded Treasure Doll, but that’s nothing compared to what happens tonight. Get your search warrant ready, and meet me at the Need Want. Read the rest of this entry
“Coffee, tea, parasites…?” Watch out for those frequent flyer perks; they can be a real bummer. The last episode of “The Strain” showed the physical changes taking place in the infected survivors of Flight 753. While Gabriel seemed to welcome the loss of his manly parts, Ansel was freaked out about his craving for a bloody steak. Jim’s made a deal with the devil, but will he come clean after Ephraim and Nora do the autopsy on Captain Redfern? Grab your isolation suits and follow me into the morgue. Read the rest of this entry
In last week’s episode of “Defiance,” we briefly got to meet the mysterious Gulanee. Too bad, we didn’t learn more about them. Dealing swiftly with the Castithan version of the Stepford Wives, the lovely Stahma showed us why she rocks. Pottinger and Nolan become BFF’s and thanks to Tommy, Berlin and Nolan get it on. There is trouble in paradise with Defiance’s own Romeo and Juliet. Christie and Alak are fighting. Is it because of her new adventures with Mercado? And… who pray tell is that dead woman that Rafe and Datak are dragging into the badlands? Put on your new skin and follow me.
There have been enough articles written on Batman to wallpaper every home in America, but for Batman’s big 75th Anniversary I wanted to cover the women from television and film who had crossed paths with the Dark Knight. What did they think of the big guy and were they friend or foe? Head to the Batcave to find out. Read the rest of this entry
The infected are on the move in this week’s episode of “The Strain.” Abraham is stuck in jail. Captain Redfern is suffering from something much worse than jetlag and Eldritch Palmer finally met the master. Right now, Vasiliy Fet is wondering what’s spooking the sewer rats. Follow me, my little blood banks, as we climb down those metal rungs into the sewers of New York.
