Holy Shaming Rack! On last week’s episode of “Defiance,” our favorite aliens were in deep Shtako. Datak is on the rack, Stahma might wish she were, Irisa flunked Amazon Goddess 101 and, Berlin has flown the coop with the king of bad shark movies. General Tak’s men have dug under the stasis net, but can Lieutenant Bebe masquerade as a human? Choose your friends wisely. Read the rest of this entry

On the last episode of “Twin Peaks,” we talked Black Lodge and my disappointment with the script. This week, I’m hoping to see some more action.

Someone up in heaven loves me. They know I’m all about zombies, ghosts, and aliens, but mostly zombies. I’ve been writing the weekly recaps of “The Walking Dead” for Biff Bam Pop! for three seasons. I’m a member of the Zombie Squad and, not only wrote articles on how to make your home zombie proof here and here, but I can safely say that I’m Biff Bam Pop’s resident zombie expert. Am I excited about the new companion series, “Fear the Walking Dead,” created and written by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson that is due to premiere on August 23rd? What do you think?

This past June, I had the opportunity to join Cathy Young and a few teacher naturalists in Smyrna Delaware for the weekend.

On the last episode of “Twin Peaks,” Leland was finally identified and charged as Laura’s killer. But, if we were following the clues given by the giant, we already knew.

I was away, visiting family in sunny Napa California, when this episode aired. My sister doesn’t have cable, which was okay because I needed to be alone to savor the season finale and, the first thing I did after arriving home last night was to watch “Penny Dreadful.” On the last episode, all our friends faced certain death. Did the finale meet my expectations? Follow me, my little pennies, to Madame Kali’s castle to find out. Read the rest of this entry
