We all know about Bonnie & Clyde, the notorious outlaws from the Depression era who were young, in love, and ruthless criminals. Director Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) is taking on the task of telling their story in a four hour, two night, TV event which will be aired on three different channels simultaneously: History, Lifetime and A&E. The miniseries starring Emile Hirsch (Into The Wild) and Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) airs Sunday and Monday, and chronicles the events of their infamous crime spree in the early 1930s. Check out the trailer below and read on for a full review.
Yes, Breaking Bad is done but that doesn’t mean that wonderfully written, life changing, mind blowing television goes to the grave with it. Case in point: Sons Of Anarchy.
This pick of the week was hard for me, because after last week’s episode ended, it looked like we could be saying our final goodbye to my favourite character. Who knows what this week will bring, and that’s the beauty of Sons Of Anarchy, and its creator Kurt Sutter. He isn’t afraid of or influenced by what anyone thinks, so all of these situations are coming from that messed up head of his that we love so much. If his vision includes violently murdering someone that we care for so much, he’s going to do it and not even think twice about it. Check out the trailer for Episode 4 “Wolfsangel” below and read on for some more thoughts on this week’s episode airing Tuesday night at 10pm. OBVIOUS WARNING: Major spoilers ahead if you’re not caught up.
Remember last Tuesday evening when you poured yourself that 7:59 PM cup of coffee and eagerly sat yourself down on the couch to watch the Joss Whedon created, produced, and directed pilot episode of the new Marvel Television series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D series on the ABC Network?
Sure you do. We all do. Everyone’s been waiting to see the continuing adventures of post-Avengers Agent Coulson, alive and in the flesh since, well, since he died in that very flick last year.
But just as you were sitting down, wide-eyed in front of the television screen, excitedly hoping on a brand new Tuesday night ritual, plans and machinations were afoot from rivals Warner Bros. TV and the Fox.
Follow me after the jump, Detective, and we’ll piece together the excitement surrounding one particular word: Gotham.

I’m so worried for my DVR. This is the week where we all get serious. Our favourite shows are coming back, new ones are starting, things are overlapping. I have serious anxiety about what I’m going to watch, what I’m going to record and when am I going to have the time to see it all! It was really hard to pick just one show as my TV pick of the week. I chose Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because you can’t really go wrong. People are already talking about it, you know it’s going to get the ratings, it’s based around a well-known and well-loved character, and… Joss Whedon. Check out the trailer and read on for a quick synopsis of the series and what you can expect from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I have had the ComiXology application since I got an iPhone years ago, but let’s face it, reading comics on an iPhone is a game for people who have a future as a LASIK eye surgery patient. Once I got an iPad however, portable digital comics became a whole new frontier. Learn about two of my first acquisitions – Batman ’66 and Wolverine: Japan’s Most Wanted – after the jump.
