This has been a weekend of beginnings and endings here at Biff Bam Pop!. Last night we saw the series eight premiere of “Doctor Who” with a brand new actor in the title role, and tonight, we’re looking at the end of “True Blood,” yes, the final episode of the series is here at last. Meet me after the jump, for my review of the hopefully appropriately titled “Thank You.”
Finally the wait is over. Several months after the end of the Matt Smith era back in “The Time of the Doctor,” the new era with Peter Capaldi as The Doctor begins. What kind of Doctor will he be? What kind of adventures will he have? It all begins with a great Jurassic roar over the streets of Victorian London, as we enter an exciting new chapter in the history of “Doctor Who.” Meet me after the jump for the first episode of Series Eight, “Deep Breath.”
Tomorrow night marks the world premiere of series eight of “Doctor Who.” It’s the show everyone is talking about, it’s purportedly the most watched television program on Earth, it’s cool to watch “Doctor Who.” But if you’re already a fan, you know all that. But what if you aren’t? If you are new to Who, #NewtoWHO as the hashtag for The Nerdist goes, here’s a handy guide to what you need to know to enjoy the big premiere tomorrow, after the jump.
Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world. This week, we had a few technical difficulties, so it’s a shorter show than usual, but we still hit on lots of topics, including the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and WWE Summer Slam 2014. See and hear more after the jump.
After this, there’s only one episode left, and it’s all coming to a bloody end. Will Sam leave Bon Temps? Will Hoyt and Jason live happily ever after with dozens of unspoken secrets between them? Can Eric ever keep a promise? Will Bill and Sookie be together or apart as “True Blood” begins to close the coffin for the last time? And will someone die tonight? Maybe we’ll find out, maybe not just yet. Check out my review of “Love Is to Die” after the jump.

It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world. This week, it’s all about the sad loss earlier this week of Robin Williams, some music we like and don’t like, and the troubled history of Steve Gerber and Howard the Duck. See and hear more after the jump.
Anticipation is building as the world premiere of “Doctor Who” Series 8 approaches. There have been several sneak peeks around the world, and reviews are for the most part positive, but the television premiere comes on August 23rd on BBC and BBC America. Until then, we have a trailer for that first episode, “Deep Breath,” take a look after the jump.
Only two more episodes of “True Blood” to go after tonight’s, so it’s almost time for the viewers to steel themselves for the inevitable, and time for our favorite characters to make desperate last moves in their television lives. Eric, Sookie, and Bill are all just about at death’s door, while Lafayette and Lettie Mae are trying to dig their way under that same door, and Violet plots her revenge. What’s next? Find out after the jump for my review of “Almost Home.”
