LelandDies

Did you guess the answer to the trivia question from last week’s episode of “Twin Peaks“? How many times did Sheryl Lee play a dead body wrapped in plastic? The answer is three: in the pilot episode, our last episode, and the 1992 theatrical film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.

True Detective S02 E02: Night Finds You

Casper

A somewhat uneven “True Detective” tries to find some traction.  Three sets of teams begin the investigation into Casper’s murder, we hear about some pretty messed up childhoods, and (SPOILER ALERT) “True Detective” appears to go all “Game of Thrones”-y as a major character may not make it passed the second episode. Find out why after the break!

Hulk Doesn’t Just Smash

Just because “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” appears to be on a momentary hiatus, it doesn’t mean that Disney X-D isn’t producing new Avengers animation. My favorite animated heroes drop by “Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” this week to show us why Hulk is so different in each series. Meet me after the gamma-powered jump for my thoughts.
