American Horror Story: Freak Show S04 E10: Orphans

 

AHS_110814_0179_hires1-1024x682

Last week’s episode of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” was a bloody mess especially with Dandy’s version of bath time. No rubber ducky for you, Dandy! And when our little sociopath isn’t bathing, he’s causing a ruckus at a neighborhood Tupperware Party. Back at the Freak Show, people are dying left and right and Maggie suddenly comes under scrutiny. What effect did the disappearance of Ma Petite have on the other performers? We’ll have to take a trip back into time for that answer. Read the rest of this entry

American Horror Story: Freak Show S04 E09: Tupperware Party Massacre

In last week’s episode of “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” we witnessed the body count growing and a beloved character maliciously eradicated by the jealous Elsa. It just doesn’t feel the same without Ethel (Kathy Bates), but she wasn’t the only person to meet an unexpected death. With Gloria out of the way, Dandy is free to go on a killing spree. What’s in the cards for our lovable freaks? Maybe Maggie has a clue. Read the rest of this entry

Steampunk Granny’s Take on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I

I have a secret to tell you. I have all the Hunger Games books, but I haven’t read any of them yet. I’ve made a conscious decision to watch the films first, and then read the books. This is a reverse of what I normally do, but I’ve found that I’m less disappointed in the films if I don’t come to the table with a fixed notion on how or if the film and book jived. This past Saturday night, I went with a friend to watch the latest addition to the Hunger Games franchise. Did Mockingjay Part 1 meet my expectations? Follow the rose. Read the rest of this entry

American Horror Story: Freak Show S04 E08: Bloodbath

lign

We missed the Freak Show last week because of Thanksgiving, and speaking of turkeys, on the last episode of “American Horror Story,” a few of the male characters were behaving a bit fowl; the dirty vultures. Stanley is a greedy parasite, Penny’s dad a sadistic buzzard, and Dandy is a homicidal nut job, but Del used his strength to crush the life out of the most vulnerable person in the sideshow. We never did learn Ma Petite’s background and that’s a shame. The question is who will be blamed for Ma Petite’s disappearance. Read the rest of this entry

Steampunk Granny Chats with “Lost Girl” Anna Silk

1

There is a show on the Syfy and Showcase channels that I’ve been watching for the last few years. It was certainly different than any show I’d seen in a long while and I was hooked on the first episode. The show I’m talking about is Lost Girl, and the actress who plays Bo, the kickass, loveable succubus trying to make her way in the Fae and human community, is the talented and beautiful Anna Silk.  When asked if I would like to interview Anna Silk for Biff Bam Pop, my reply was a loud, “Hell yeah!”

Lost Girl was created by developed by Prodigy Pictures in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive producers are Jay Firestone, Vanessa Piazza, and Michael Grassi with Grassi taking over as the showrunner for season five. Anna Silk hints at what will happen on the final season, premiering this Sunday on Showcase at 9 pm ET, after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Sleepy Hollow S02 E11: Akeda

Sleepy-Hollow-2x11-stills

I have to say that I’m really enjoying this season of “Sleepy Hollow.” You never know what mischief Henry will start and I look forward to seeing the ‘Monster of the Week,’ but what I enjoy the most is learning the backstory of each character. In last week’s episode, we saw how close Abraham and Ichabod were until Katrina messed it up. Ichabod and Abbie now have a magic sword, but will they have a chance to use it?

We are at the mid-season finale until TWD returns in February and things are not looking good for Team Rick or Team Abe. We ended last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” with the attempted hostage exchange botched and Sasha left unconscious. Carol and Beth are at the mercy of the wicked witch of Grady Memorial. Will Rick be able to make Dawn an offer she can’t refuse? Read the rest of this entry

Sleepy Hollow S02 E10: Magnum Opus

On last week’s episode of “Sleepy Hollow,” Abbie and Jenny celebrated Mother’s Day a little earlier this year when they released their mother from Purgatory. This week, while Katrina takes care of her demon child (the boy has a face that only a mother could love) Ichabod and Abbie must go on a scavenger hunt to find a weapon that can destroy that pesky little hound of hell, Moloch. Will they find the weapon and who will try to stop them? Read the rest of this entry
