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

Follow me, my little blood banks, as we climb down those metal rungs into the sewers of New York.

Defiance S02 E06: This Woman’s Work


Amanda’s hooked on drugs and Stahma rules the roost, but not everyone is happy with her liberated way of thinking. Our Castithan Vixen might have bigger problems than Datak and Rafe joining forces. Nolan and Pottinger are investigating an alien ship that has crashed in the badlands. What do they find? Strap on your cold fire weapon and follow me to Defiance. Read the rest of this entry

The Strain S01 E02: The Box



Holy freaking parasites! The season premiere of “The Strain” introduced us to something quite large and most wicked. Will Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his partner, Dr. Nora  Martinez locate the source of the fast moving contagion that killed most of the passengers of Flight 753? Will more people die before they do? What about the four survivors held in quarantine, what will we learn from them? And…why are the dead not staying dead? Only one man who knows, but he’s in jail. Someone is visiting Setrakian at jail? Shall we eavesdrop and find out who? Read the rest of this entry

Defiance S02 E05: Putting the Damage On


Defiance can be a pretty dangerous place especially if you’re a woman. Stahma has thrown out the obnoxious Datak with the trash, but will she pay dearly for this defiant stand? Dr. Yewll has to play nice with Pottinger while keeping her loyalty to her friends. Rafe is homeless. Maybe he and Datak can be roomies. Amanda is being spied on, which is not the employee benefits she was counting on when she went to work for Pottinger, and someone is stalking her… who? Meet me at the Need/Want to find out.

The Strain S01 E01: Night Zero


Air travel is the fastest route from point A to point B, which is on the plus side, but the negative side has passengers contending with rising costs, security checks, frequent flight cancellations and uncomfortable seats. As bad as that sounds, the poor passengers on Flight 753 unfortunately received more than their complimentary bag of peanuts. The jet has landed and the fright is just about to begin… please remain seated until we arrive at the gate for the first episode of “The Strain.” Read the rest of this entry

Defiance S02 E04: Beast of Burden



Holy freaking homecoming from hell! How many of my little Votans thought that our little Stahma was a goner on last week’s episode? Thank goodness Alak was there to save mommy dearest from crazy Datak. I’m guessing that things are going to be a bit uncomfortable with the Tarr family, but my money is on Stahma. Captain Berlin and Pottinger are doing another propaganda film while on a road trip, but I have a feeling their convoy will not reach its final destination. Let’s head over and check on the merry citizens of Defiance. Read the rest of this entry

Steampunk Granny’s Preview of The Strain


I did a book review on Guillermo del Toro’s vampire trilogy a little over a year ago for Biff Bam Pop!. The review was on all three books: The Strain, The Fall and The Night Eternal. I love horror and I love stories about vampires, even the ones that sparkle, but after reading the first two chapters of The Strain, I had a very hard time falling asleep. It was freaking scary. That’s saying a lot considering that I’m a professional ghost hunter and I don’t shock easily. Will the television series live up to the books? Find out after the jump.
