Last night felt like “TV Night” from the 1990s. Thanks #XFiles!

This morning I am -9 hours at the gym, but only -2 blog posts.   Progress! Nostalgia will always paint things from our past with rose colored glasses.  In the case of The X-Files, I distinctly remember some highs and some lows.  (The lows taking place in the latter seasons.)...

That Time I Argued with Adam Goldberg (of The Goldbergs) about Transformers

When I’m having a conversation about with someone and of the random “that time Tom Croom” did something stories shows up, I usually just search my own blog and forward folks likes to the story about whatever item/legend/lie they heard.  Recently, I was talking sitcoms with a friend on the...

The Lengths I’ll Go For A Silly Joke… $6.30.

PROLOGUE: Still playing catch up.  Gym is at -5 and the blog is at -4. A video showed up on my social media feed this morning presenting a young Vin Diesel working as a pitchman for the early nineties toy line: Street Sharks. “Say hello to that round mound of...

Finished watching #MakingAMurder

Before going too deep into this blog post, I should point out that I know (as should you) that all documentaries are presented from a viewpoint that the filmmaker wants to convey.  The filmmakers from Making a Murderer have stated time and time again that they weren’t looking to create a...

Elementary or Sherlock?

Both. I like both.  I find it funny that when I talk to other fans at geek events that, for some reason, there seems to be a stigma in liking both.  Allegedly I should like one or the other.  I don’t get it. I like Sherlock.  Each “season” is really three...

That Steve Harvey #MissUniverse2015 Moment

(While this blog is backdated 12/20/15, I actually wrote it the morning of the 21st.  You will see why in a moment.) I had the editing window open on my blog last night ready to write my daily tale about something when I heard my wife watching TV in the other...

Hey WPLG Local 10 News in South Florida (@WPLGLocal10) – story idea! (In regards to #StarWars Celebration 6)

I could go on an on about the decline of journalism in lieu of tabloid television, but sometimes the actions of “the news” tells the tale well enough on its own. It seems that WPLG, a local station in South Florida, decided it would be AWESOME to post a photo...

How much of my life has been spent on The X-Files? Good question…

Shannon and I just completed watching every episode and movie (in order) of The X-Files tonight with the completion of The X-Files: I Want to Believe. I just checked and there are 202 episodes total.  Plus two movies.  Figure that each episode is approximately 50 minutes each. 50 minutes times...

The Two Things Wrong with #Torchwood: Miracle Day (or “Why It’s Just Not That Good This Time…”)

Yes – I like Torchwood.  No, I am nowhere NEAR where Captain Jack Harkness comes into play in the Doctor Who Universe since I’ve started watching the series that aired in the seventies and eighties.  (Click here to see what I mean.)  Thus, my viewpoint if the Torchwood television show...

Working Out with DOCTOR WHO: The Hand of Fear (4th Doctor)

…aka “WTF is Sarah Jane wearing?!” I haven’t had much time for TV lately (and I was away from the gym for a short bit.)  Pesky conventions keep taking up my time.  That said, here’s what’s I’ve watched thus far in the Who-niverse: The Ark in Space (4th Doctor) Planet...

Working Out with DOCTOR WHO: The Ark in Space (4th Doctor)

This posts begins my watching of the Fourth (and most well known to American classic fans) Doctor: Tom Baker.  The others that I have watched thus far: Planet of the Spiders (3rd Doctor) The Time Warrior (3rd Doctor) The Green Death (3rd Doctor) Carnival of Monsters (3rd Doctor) The Three...
