Let’s stop by the convenience store… we should be safe, right? Read the rest of this entry
There seem to be two types of people in this world – folks who think Spider-Man should be in the Avengers, and folks who think the wall crawler should not be an Avenger. Where do you stand on the issue? In the comics, the web-slinger has been one of Earth’s Mightiest for some time now, but it took decades to happen. Now, Marvel’s latest animated version of Spider-Man joins the team in this weekend’s new episode of “Ultimate Spider-Man.” Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Avenging Spider-Man.”

Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Into the Dalek.”
Well, my little Votans, this is a bittersweet post because tonight is the last for the season. Yep, it’s a two-part season finale of “Defiance” and I’m going to miss those wacky yet lovable townsfolk of Defiance. Last week’s two-part episode focused on the women of Defiance, both alien and human. They don’t take Shtako from anyone. Hell no! Who cares if civilization has collapsed like an old party balloon; The gals of Defiance can take care of themselves. The men, on the other hand, could use some help. Read the rest of this entry
Evil exists in darkness, but flees at the first rays of light, except when you’re a vampire, who’s able to hide underground or in dark rooms; shades pulled closed. We witnessed the moon’s eclipse of the sun in last week’s episode; now our heroes make their way in a team effort to track down the Master. Who will they use as bait? Did you ever wonder how Eichorst became the Master’s second in command? Maybe we’ll find out on this week’s episode of “The Strain.” Step lightly, their hearing is enhanced.
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.
