Well, it’s back! “Sleepy Hollow” has returned to Fox with a new episode and, hopefully, better plots. I’m hoping to see more of our pesky headless horseman, and after the last episode, I’m wondering if Ichabod went shopping for newer threads. Will we see some action tonight? I certainly hope so. Meet me after the jump.
I must have died and gone to heaven! The networks, this fall, are returning with some old and trusted favorites along with some new and exciting horror shows. Our illustrious leader, Andy Burns (knowing that I’m coo-coo for everything scary) asked me to review two new shows; “Sleepy Hollow” on Fox and “Dracula” on NBC, along with my weekly review of “The Walking Dead.” What was my reply, you might ask, my little zombie snacks? Find out after the jump.
A few months ago, we were all hit with the news that Disney had acquired Lucasfilm for a staggering $4.05 billion, which, in an unbelievable act of altruism, George Lucas will be donating to charity. While jokes and memes hit the Internet within minutes of the announcement, as well as superficial complaints, it quickly became apparent that this acquisition was likely going to be a good thing. Yes, while Disney is responsible for a colossal amount of trite and repulsive shorts, films, and merchandise, it is also the owner of Pixar, Marvel Entertainment, and The Jim Henson Workshop. None of these staples of modern pop culture suffered from the change in ownership; in all cases, its creators kept total control of their visions and properties and made, arguably, the best feature films any company had ever produced after the change.
And then, the news yesterday: 2015 will bring us Star Wars VII directed by JJ Abrams, which is possibly the biggest and most exciting bit of Geek News to hit the Internet since the announcement that Joss Whedon was handling Marvel’s The Avengers. I, for one, welcome our new Jedi Master.
This week: Happy Endings and Don’t Trust The B in Apt 23 return, Unser and Clay have a confrontation on Sons of Anarchy, The 2012 World Series begins, and Andrea and Michonne meet The Governor on The Walking Dead.

Hello, BiffBamPop readers and Fringe fans! I’m sharing my thoughts about the latest Fringe happenings. I’ve been a fan of Fringe since that fateful Sunday night debut four seasons ago. Fringe may have been “X-Files lite” back then but I still enjoyed the first season. It seems like Torv & Jackson being on the cover of Entertainment Weekly came from an alternate universe, doesn’t it?
What makes Fringe one of the best TV shows today is the journey of the characters. These engaging people are always welcome to act out their temporal struggles in my home. Anyone watching Fringe week by week will wonder why John Noble, or even Anna Torv and Joshua Jackson, never gets considered for a major TV award. Mad scientist Walter Bishop should be one of the highlights to be promoted by anyone airing Fringe, whether Fox or some other channel in the future.
This week’s highlights include a Hawaii Five-O and NCIS: LA crossover, the NYADA auditions on Glee, and we mourn Starburns on Community.
