Comic Corner: Morning Glories Issue 2 Review

Continuing on with my series of Morning Glories, we arrive at Issue #2, which features one of the more memorable covers and scenes, as well as introductions, hints, and foreshadowing for a number of different plotlines and flashbacks that appear later on. Full review after the break.

Comic Corner: Morning Glories Issue 1 Review, Part 2

Whoa

I ended my review of part 1 with our heroes being drugged on the way to Morning Glory Academy (MGA). So let’s pick up, appropriately, when they’re waking up from the drive to their new school/prison/hell.

Comic Corner: Morning Glories Issue 1 Review, Part 1

I came to Morning Glories (MG) a bit late. But I loved every issue I read. So I wanted to spend a little more time on the series, and what better way to do so than to review each issue. Starting with number 1.

Comic Corner: Morning Glories Review

I read a review of issue 16, the most recent issue, of a comic series called Morning Glories that I’d never heard of before on Sunday night. Well, I didn’t read the whole review. I got about halfway through, was spoiled on a few minor points, and stopped reading. I stopped reading not because I … Continue reading

Review(s): Being Erica, Episodes 6, 7, 8

I wanted to freeze Erica saying "Shazam!" after taking Julianne to her apartment, but that was impossible.

I’ve been busy lately, so I fell behind on my Being Erica reviews. Apologies, readers. Instead of writing each one up individually, I want to talk about these as a group of episodes that have really responded to my problems with this season. They’ve all explored the mythology of the doctors and how Erica’s journey … Continue reading

Review: Being Erica, Season 4, Episode 5: Sins of the Father

What is this "party" I am apparently attending?

Well, I got what I asked for. Last week I talked about how this season of Being Erica was overly light-hearted and filled with happy endings. This week was another Dr. Tom backstory episode, as well as giving a bit more info on Dr. Naadiah, both of which were welcome. More after the break.

Review: Husbands Season 1

Nathan Fillion: Action Sports Reporter!

I don’t really like web series. I think the medium, overall, is inferior to 20- or 40-minute blocks of television. 2-10 minute segments are extremely short, and unless it’s a show going solely for laughs, such as NTSF:SD:SUV::, I just don’t think web series can be as involving as more traditional TV shows. So that’s … Continue reading

Review: Being Erica Season 4, Episode 4: “Born This Way”

Being Erica has always been a mixture of a bunch of ideas. Sometimes it’s a strangely mythology-focused hour, getting into what happens in this mystical therapy (especially last season, with all the time travel and group therapy stuff). Other times it’s more a straight up dramedy, with a bit of a big-city Gilmore Girls-esque feel … Continue reading

Downton Abbey: Season 2 Midpoint Review

Fancy new outfit for Downton and Matthew

When I tell people that I watch Grey’s Anatomy, or Awkward., or The Vampire Diaries, I have to defend my reasons for watching. For Grey’s, well, I’ve been watching it for 6+ years and I’m not likely to stop until it’s over. Awkward. is adorable. The Vampire Diaries is much better than its title, subject … Continue reading

Alias: The Box, Parts One and Two

Hi Quentin!

I’ve been following Ryan McGee’s Alias reviews over at TV Club Classic, and this two-parter was getting some hype from the comments section. People were saying things like “everything before ‘The Box’ just runs together” and how it was a high point of the season. I don’t entirely disagree with him or the commenters, but … Continue reading
