Star Trek – The Original Series Season One Rewatch

Saturday , 5, December 2015 Comments Off on Star Trek – The Original Series Season One Rewatch

Last night I finished rewatching all 29 episodes of Star Trek – The Original Series Season One. Earlier this year a good friend of mine told me about a set of books, “These Are The Voyages – TOS”, covering the three seasons that comprised Star Trek – The Original Series. I was, to say the […]

Wednesday , 19, August 2015 Comments Off on R.I.P. Yvonne Craig

I awoke to the sad news this morning that Yvonne Craig had passed away Monday evening at the age of 78 from metastatic breast cancer that had spread to her liver. The first time I saw Ms. Craig was in 1967 when she joined the Batman TV show’s third and final season as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon. […]

It’s that time of year. News is trickling out this week and will next week, I’m sure, about TV shows that have been canceled. Usually, if a show has made it through at least one season, then it has gained followers (though not enough or it wouldn’t get cancelled, right?) who will be disappointed, from […]

House of Cards – Season 3

Sunday , 8, March 2015 Comments Off on House of Cards – Season 3

I spent the past 3 weeks watching the first 2 seasons of House of Cards on Netflix so that I could be ready to watch the 3rd season, which dropped on Friday, February 27th. I watched episodes of the 3rd season late at night for the most part during that week and finished the season […]

Catching Up On “The Walking Dead”

Friday , 9, January 2015 Comments Off on Catching Up On “The Walking Dead”

Due to a multitude of reasons, I missed seasons 3, 4 and the beginning of the current season 5 of “The Walking Dead.” But, thanks to Netflix, I was able to binge watch seasons 3 and 4 and thanks to the AMC New Year’s Day Walking Dead Marathon I was able to DVR the eight […]

I don’t think there’s any other time of year that has so many cartoons or movies dedicated to or centered around the holiday we call Christmas. And I guess it’s the influence of some of them that have been around since I was a kid that have ingrained them into being such a part of […]

Original Star Trek TV Guide Listing

Saturday , 13, December 2014 Comments Off on Original Star Trek TV Guide Listing

Back on September 8, 1966 the Original Star Trek TV series premiered in the 8:30 to 9:30pm time slot. I was 11 years old and if I’m remembering correctly I convinced my mom to let me stay up and watch it, even though it was a school night (remember, no VHS tape recorders or DVR’s […]

The new Amazon Fire TV Stick was delivered to us today (thank you, Amazon, for arranging Sunday deliveries with the USPS) and I’ve set it up on the TV in our room. Back in October, I believe, Amazon announced the coming release of their Fire TV Stick and for 2 days only offered it for […]

I’ve been a fan of The Tick since the cartoon series first appeared on TV in 1994. Spooooon!!! The cartoon only lasted three seasons, which was a travesty. Even worse was that the hilarious live action series that premiered in 2001 only lasted nine episodes. So, a couple of weeks ago when my son presented me […]

James Garner Kissed My Mother-In-Law

Sunday , 20, July 2014 Comments Off on James Garner Kissed My Mother-In-Law

I was saddened to open my Twitter feed this morning and learn that actor James Garner had passed away Saturday at the age of 86. I never knew or met Mr. Garner, but my mother-in-law did. When I was a young lad of 6 or 7 my father was a huge fan of westerns on […]
