Twin Peaks S02 E02: Coma


The series, “Twin Peaks,” has become a special treat for me. Just like the Italian Espresso that I treat myself to every afternoon, or that piece of chocolate that I have after dinner, I look forward to viewing and then reviewing the “Twin Peak” series for Biff Bam Pop!. The characters on the show are more like family to me and, if you ever met my family, you’d understand. Last episode, the giant returned. This episode, Agent Cooper talks Buddha to Albert.

12 Monkeys S01 E02: Mentally Divergent


Cassandra is having man troubles. On last week’s first episode of “12 Monkeys,” we witnessed the time jumping Cole causing all kinds of grief for our young Dr. Railly. Cole and Cassandra need to learn more about the group called 12 Monkeys, but they may have to wait until visiting hours begins at the mental hospital. If you’re ready for some time travel boogie woogie, then follow me. Read the rest of this entry

The Walking Dead S05 E02: Strangers


Played like the second half of a Super Bowl game, last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” showed how Team Cattle royally kicked Team Butcher’s butt, and we can thank Carol aka Wonder Woman for that victory. Now if we can only have Carol dispose of ISIS. Carol could do this with one arm tied behind her back. On the run again, Team Rick needs to find supplies, but will it be worth the risk?

My Take on NBC’s Dracula


Created by journalist and comic book writer Cole Haddon in his first TV endeavor, and run by the genius behind “Carnivale” Daniel Knauf, NBC’s “Dracula” was one of the shows of the new season I was looking forward to. A steampunk version of Dracula on the small screen sounds so intriguing, let’s see how it actually holds up.

The Truth and the Conspiracy were out there – looking back at the final episode of The X-Files

One of the main reasons I like Netflix here in Canada is that you can catch up on a lot of your favourite television shows from days gone by, especially those shows you’re just not willing to pay for on DVD.

If you’re like me, one of those shows is The X-Files.

From 1993 until 2002 and over the course of nine seasons and 202 episodes, The X-Files became a cultural phenomenon that, along with The Simpsons, helped secure the fledgling Fox Network as a major player in the ever-expanding cable television universe.

In the spirit of Biff Bam Pop’s “Conspiracy Week,” I recently caught up with old friends Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) over the two-hour series finale, “The Truth,” originally aired on Sunday, May 19th, 2002.  Creator Chris Carter  wrote the two-hour event, wrapping up the series in an exposition-heavy clip show that laid out the conspiracy behind UFOs, alien abductions and their connection to the U.S. government.

If you ever wanted to believe but were never really sure of what was going on, today’s look at “The Truth” will set your mind free.

Or burden it with a whole lot of frustrating questions.

Fair warning: set your spoiler-sensors to full from here on.
