I had fun with the Motts and our friends at the “Freak Show,” but now it’s time to travel to sunny Los Angeles. Wes Bentley from season one’s “Murder House” is back as John Lowe, a detective investigating a series of murders. Lady Gaga joins the outstanding cast and crew of one of the best horror show around, “American Horror Story.” Are you ready to check into the Hotel Cortez? Your room is this way.

Faithful viewers of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will remember the Asgardian Berserker from the first season episode “The Well” Not only did it introduce the secretly Asgardian Professor Randolph, but also it was the first time we began to see dark cracks in the shell of Agent Grant Ward. Both men return this episode, as does Agent Melinda May, so meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Purpose in the Machine.”
I don’t think I’ve have been this excited about a season premiere of a television show since the series premiere of “The Flash” last year. You see, the Flash isn’t just my favorite superhero, but Jay Garrick is my favorite Flash. To see him brought to life on the small screen is just pure nerdgasm. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “The Man Who Saved Central City.”
In 1977, when other kids were discovering The Sex Pistols, I was discovering The Love Boat. I stayed at my grandparents’ house on most weekends, so on Saturday nights at 8 p.m., I’d settle down on the sofa with the two of them to watch Aaron Spelling’s marine masterpiece. This column is my attempt to reclaim the wonder of those weekends.

Continuing to re-nail themes touched upon or done first in the theatrical film of the same name, “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” animated series run afoul of the Collector in this episode. And this version of the character appears to have walked right out of the film into the cartoon seeking out the one in a million Rocket Raccoon, check out my thoughts on “One in a Million You” after the hyperspace jump.
The walkers, on “Fear the Walking Dead,” can’t and won’t be held at bay for too long. On the last episode, Daniel went to the arena after interrogating one of the soldiers. There is no more denying what motivates the dead: Hunger! Hunger is what feeds the virus that controls them. What motivations will the living need to survive and, when that time comes, who do you pick to survive with you? Read the rest of this entry
For many people, October means fall weather, Halloween costumes and pumpkin patches. Yeah, that stuff is fun, but for me, the month of October is the return of two of my favorite shows. What will we be seeing on “American Horror Story: Hotel,” and what is happening with our favorite lawman, Rick Grimes, on “The Walking Dead“? Sing a few lines of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” and follow me. Read the rest of this entry
With the Davros diversion behind him, and Missy/The Master off cavorting with the Supreme Dalek back in time, we are somewhat back to status quo with “Doctor Who.” That is if we ignore the news of an upcoming new spin-off called “Class” about the kids at the Coal Hill School, we can go back to running around time and space with The Doctor and Clara. Meet me after the time and space jump when Biff Bam Pop’s 31 Days of Horror crosses over with “Doctor Who” and our heroes face ghosts “Under the Lake.”
I like watching “Sleepy Hollow” which stars Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, but although the cast was excellent, the writing needed to be vamped up, a lot. Maybe with season three, the creators have finally perfected the formula to make “Sleepy Hollow” kick-ass great. On the season two finale, Abbie did some time travel and Ichabod said a bittersweet goodbye to Katrina. But as we all know, our dynamic duo’s fight against evil is never over.
