So while other DC Comics superheroes, who shall remain nameless, are fighting amongst themselves at the box office – some are making friends and teaming up. I’m talking about Supergirl and the Flash, who crossover from their competing networks to battle the combined forces of Livewire and the Silver Banshee in the current episode of “Supergirl.” Meet me after the extra-dimensional jump for my thoughts on “World’s Finest.”
On last week’s episode of “Sleepy Hollow,” we met good ole Thomas Jefferson. Why was the writer of the Declaration of Independence and the third president of the United States hiding out in the sewers of Sleepy Hollow? He and his monster posse had important information for our dynamic duo. Too bad Ichabod and Abbie couldn’t save the books. This week we’re asked the question, “Who really cracked the Liberty Bell?” Our dynamic duo has to stop a coven of witches from gaining power. Which side will Katrina be on?

Of the entire slate of new TV programming set to hit our televisions this fall, NBC’s Constantine series might arguably have the most anticipation.
Well, anticipation and, perhaps more importantly, trepidation, by the DC Comic characters’ legion of loyal fans.
Ripped from the monthly pages of Swamp Thing, John Constantine: Hellblazer and, more recently, Constantine, follow me after the jump for the first look at the brand new, just dropped trailer, for the Friday night NBC horror series aptly titled: Constantine!
Sometimes we humans are more evil than the monsters we seek to kill. In episode 9, Van Helsing was so set on revenge that he was ready to bash in the heads of Browning’s young children, and Harker, social climber that he is, has joined the Order of the Dragon. The cards are dealt, but with his comrades joining the dark side, is the deck stacked against Grayson? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
Take a look around and you’ll find some stellar television showing up not just on cable channels like HBO and Showtime, but network broadcasters as well. For my money, no show last season was more chilling and clever than Bryan Fuller’s awesome Hannibal. How good is it? How about this – as classic a performance Anthony Hopkins has given as Dr. Lecter in Silence of the Lambs, as much as he once defined the character, for me, Mads Mikkelsen is now MY Hannibal. He gives the character a cool and calm demeanour, as we watch investigator Will Graham (the equally brilliant Hugh Dancy) uncover a series of crimes with Lecter’s help. The first season of Hannibal was almost a buddy cop show. Almost.
The trailer for the second season of the NBC series has now dropped, and offers lots of hints as to what we’ll be seeing. Colour me hugely excited for this (and the news today that American Mary star Katherine Isabelle has been added as Margot Verger makes my anticipation that much greater.
Have you watched Hannibal? Will you be watching Season 2 when it premieres Friday February 28th?
Last week’s episode was a real character study on the people surrounding Grayson/Dracula. Best friends are not always best friends, boyfriends can’t be trusted, and you never ever want to piss off Lady Jayne. While Mina was attacked by henchmen from the Order of the Dragon, Jonathan was fooling around with Lucy. Davenport’s been shot and Browning’s children are missing. The war is on between the merry men of the Order and Grayson/Dracula. When push comes to shove, who will Mina chose? Find out after the jump.
In our last episode, Dracula/Grayson, with the help of Van Helsing’s experiments, spoiled the Order of the Dragon’s plans to get rid of him, but Dracula might want to invest in sunscreen. Mina, did the nasty with Harker, and snubbed her BFF, Lucy. Not to worry, Lucy has a new friend; Ninja Jayne. Will the merry men of the Brotherhood find a way to rid themselves of Grayson and his eco-friendly, energy saving technology? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
Last week’s episode was all about friends and their secrets. Dracula saved Renfield from the clutches of Browning’s torturers and he danced with Mina. But, did that little waltz around the room reveal a secret that can be used against him? Nothing gets past Ninja Jayne. Suspicions are growing; no one ever sees Grayson during the day. Will Van Helsing perfect the serum that will enable our little stud bunny to walk in the sun? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
I’m getting to love this show, but rumor has it that NBC might cancel the series if star Jonathan Rhys Meyers doesn’t clean up his drug problem. Pay attention, Jonathan! Steampunk Granny wants to give you a bit of advice. “Snap out of it and get your damn act together. You’re way too talented to throw your life away.” Okay now that I got that out of my system, let’s review the show. Renfield has been captured by Davenport’s men. Will Dracula be able to save his right hand man? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
Hello my little vamps! I hope you had a chance to read Biff Bam Pop’s very own Glenn Walker‘s take on “Dracula,” if not, please do. Well… last week’s episode was somewhat interesting. Mina dumped Harker, the Victorian male chauvinist. Dracula eliminated his enemies, but not fast enough to keep me interested. Ninja Lady Jayne has seers with a magic mirror. I really want this show to succeed, especially since it follows “Grimm,” but so far… I’ve been a bit disappointed in the weak scripts. I’m hoping this show finds its mojo and kicks up the level of horror. This is a vampire story after all, right? Will Dracula kick butt tonight? Find out after the jump Read the rest of this entry
