I find if fascinating when rich people squander their fortunes because they start the race a few leagues (Roman) ahead of everyone else, yet they still manage to screw it up (which isn’t the same as a poor – or should I say “less rich” – person who lose any newfound wealth because they’re unaccustomed […]
H.G. Wells’ War Of The Worlds has to be among one of the most adapted science fiction novels ever written. I can recall seven off the top of my head–including the subject of this post–though I’m reasonably certain there’re a few that have escaped my notice. This version takes place in various countries in Europe–of […]
Russell Davies created Queer As Folk (starring Aidan Gillan, Craig Kelly and a very young Charlie Hunnam) that ran from 1999-2000. Later, in 2005 he was an executive producer/writer on Doctor Who.

Besides, she also is a bit nuts. It’s an interesting take on the character, in that she doesn’t appear particularly noble–like in the comics–more […]
When we first meet Will Bowman (Josh Halloway) he’s preparing breakfast–or at least attempting to–for his family, that consists of his wife Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies, most recently of The Walking Dead) and three children, before he heads out to work. Though one of his sons is missing, and Will is doing all he can […]
I’ve written on this topic before, though I have yet to find an answer–satisfying or otherwise.
For Marvel’s Daredevil I literally watched the entire first series over about a day and a half. The reason I did so was because i wanted to see if i could, though i was also curious if could stand up to a serious binge-viewing. And it passed with flying colors. I’m not terribly familiar with […]
