Top 10 TV Episodes of 2014, Part 3

14 Jan

4. True Detective- “Who Goes There” True Detective may have disappointed in the end, and it’s certainly one of the more overrated series of the year, but that didn’t stop “Who Goes There” from blowing me away. This is essentially my “Technical Achievement” award for the year, as while I never got emotionally involved in [...]

Top 10 TV Episodes of 2014, Part 2

13 Jan

7. South Park- “The Cissy” Who woulda thunk South Park would still be relevant in its 18th season? But it is, though as always it’s an uneven animal. I think I liked this season more than most, due in large part to the mild serialization and the extra bit of heart. This episode was one [...]

Top 10 TV Episodes of 2014- Part 1

10. The Walking Dead- “No Sanctuary” Someone from AMC Networks Scripted Programming has been looking at my Linkedin profile and I would love to work there again, so all I’ll say is that The Walking Dead is a very good show. That is all.

Assorted Musings on 2014 TV

8 Jan

Well, nothing will ever disappoint me as much as the ending of LOST, so with that being said, 2014 was a pretty good year for television. Dan Harmon came back to Community, and while it still wasn’t as good as its first three seasons, at least it felt like the same show and not the [...]

23 Apr

A DRAGON IS NOT A SLAVE …that is all. Read the recap here.

Game of Thrones- “Walk of Punishment” Recap

15 Apr

Head over to the ZEFR-U blog to check out my latest Game of Thrones recap. Last night’s episode, “Walk of Punishment” was absolutely awesome. It was a great tribute to the novels on which it is based, but also struck a very unique tone that made the episode feel almost like a standalone, one-off story [...]

Game of Thrones- “Dark Wings, Dark Words” Recap

8 Apr

George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series is an extremely complex and complicated collection of novels, so much so that by book four they cease to feature any central narrative or arc and kinda just tell you what’s going on in Westeros in real time. It’s kind of astounding that a television adaptation [...]

Game of Thrones Season Premiere Recap

1 Apr

Head over to the ZEFR-U blog to read my take on last night’s season three premiere of Game of Thrones. There’s so many characters now that the show feels a little all over the place, but it’s still amazing and solid. Not jumping the shark, and a lot of surprises for people like me who’ve [...]

The Walking Dead- “This Sorrowful Life” Recap

25 Mar

Head over to the ZEFR-U Blog to read my latest Walking Dead recap. I expected the episode to be nothing more filler designed to further stall the inevitable showdown of Rick vs. Governor we all know is coming. It was actually pretty great and focused on one of my favorite actors on the show, Michael [...]

Macho is Bullshit- Thoughts on the “Girls” Finale

19 Mar

I got around to watching the season finale of Girls last night and was pleasantly surprised. The first season blew me away and really hooked me, but the follow-up has been uneven to say the least. Things were looking good at the start. Donald Glover cameoed in a couple episodes. There was more Ray, and [...]
