Adam “Batman” West Omitted From Oscars “In Memoriam” Segment

Monday , 5, March 2018 Comments Off on Adam “Batman” West Omitted From Oscars “In Memoriam” Segment

The first live-action Batman I ever knew was Adam West. To a kid who spent the early years of his childhood reading Batman comic books, it was the coolest thing ever at the age of 11 to see one of my favorite comic book heroes come to life on the TV screen. Granted, the spirit […]

Netflix Reboot of Lost in Space

Monday , 26, February 2018 Comments Off on Netflix Reboot of Lost in Space

Netflix just announced that they would be releasing their reboot of Lost in Space which will begin streaming on April 13, 2018. As an 11-year-old growing up in the space age of NASA’s Gemini program and science fiction movies, I loved Lost in Space when it first aired, especially because it had a kid about […]

“My Next Guest” with David Letterman

Saturday , 13, January 2018 Comments Off on “My Next Guest” with David Letterman

I just finished watching the first episode of the new Netflix series, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction – with David Letterman” with former President Obama as his inaugural guest and I truly enjoyed the entire show. It was fun, poignant, and entertaining. My only wish is that it had been longer (because you could […]

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 […]

R.I.P. Yvonne Craig

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 […]
