At long last, The Dark Tower was finally released in theaters. Tiny and I saw it together and then I saw it with our friend Tony Troxell from Geeking in Indiana. In this episode I talk to frequent guest Robert Fekkes about the movie and got Mike to submit a Pine Tree Perfume segment reviewing it as well! (Note: Our review with Tony Troxell can be found in the previous episode.) Continue reading

TV Review: Under the Dome – 113 – “Curtains”

UNDER-THE-DOME

twitterpost tagspost tagsreddit

You can probably tell from the way I’ve been posting these Under the Dome reviews on Thursdays that I’ve been getting slightly burnt out on reviewing every episode. On that score, I’m a bit relieved to be churning out my final season 1 review for the CBS Summer series. This finale gave me some mixed emotions. You can read my thoughts below but be warned SPOILERS WITHIN

TV Review: Under the Dome – 112 – “Exigent Circumstances”

UNDER-THE-DOME

twitterpost tagspost tagsreddit

In this week’s penultimate episode of Under the Dome’s first season, Big Jim took full control of Chester’s Mill and exploited their fear of the Barbie he led them to believe was a threat. Elsewhere, Julia took a nap, Junior became somewhat tolerable and Joe and Norrie hid the mini Dome.

TV Review: Under the Dome – 111 – “Speak of the Devil”

It’s time again for everyone’s favorite game, “Is Under the Dome good this week?” The rules are simple. The folks at CBS air an episode on Monday night. I watch said episode either late Monday or early Tuesday. Then I procrastinate. On Wednesday (sometimes Thursday, ahem) I post my thoughts.

So. Was Under the Dome good this week? Place your bets and read on.

I’ve waited a couple days before writing and posting this review. I’ve been busy editing and prepping 2 episodes of the podcast for release this week. Shameless plug, if you’re a fan of Breaking Bad, you should check out our first of 3 special Breaking Bad episodes where we breakdown the show’s final run episode by episode.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to Under the Dome, shall we?

TV Review: Under the Dome – 109 – “The Fourth Hand”

UNDER-THE-DOME

twitterpost tagspost tagsreddit

Under the Dome has become a successful mystery series in that each week I don’t know whether I will write a favorable review or pick the whole thing apart while comparing it to another show.  It’s been a very inconsistent show in its first eight episodes. Being an eternal optimist, I view this inconsistency as a good thing. If the writers listen to feedback and examine what works and what doesn’t, the series could really thrive in season two.

For now, however, let’s talk about episode 9: “The Fourth Hand.”

TV Review: Under the Dome – 108 – “Thicker Than Water”

I feel like I was a little hard on the show last week. I want to reiterate that it was a good episode but the similarities to Lost were obvious to the point of being distracting for me.

I also want to say that Under the Dome season 1 now has a home video release date. It’ll be released on November 5th on DVD, Blu-Ray and a collector’s edition Blu-Ray set. You can preorder it by clicking the corresponding links in the previous sentence. I think it’s interesting that it’s releasing so soon. It’s an interesting way to combat piracy.

But enough about that; here’s my review of the episode. As always,  BEWARE, MAJOR SPOILERS Continue reading

TV Review: Under the Dome – 107 – “Imperfect Circles”

UNDER-THE-DOME

Last week’s Under the Dome was the closest the series has come to being what I hoped it would be before the series premiered. I went into this week’s episode hopeful that it would keep the momentum going. So did it? Read on to find out but beware. There are MAJOR EPISODE SPOILERS in this review. Continue reading

TV Review: Under the Dome – 106 – “The Endless Thirst”

A note before I get started with this week’s review. I mentioned last week in my “Parting Thoughts” section that I didn’t understand last week’s episode title (Blue on Blue) and thought a better episode title would be “Friendly Fire.” Thanks to Reddit user “AegisToTheCrown” I now know that “Blue on Blue” is actually military terminology for “friendly fire.” I don’t know why I didn’t know that, but all the same, thanks Aegis!

TV Review: Under the Dome – 105 – “Blue on Blue”

Under the Dome is getting dangerous. This was the second week in a row that the show has had a strong episode. It’s successfully lulling me into a false sense of security as to what kind of quality we can expect from the rest of the season.

TV Review: Under the Dome – 104 – “Outbreak”

I’ll be honest, last week’s episode left such a bad taste in my mouth that I was actually very nervous about tuning in this week. I spent the week telling myself that the show’s lackluster 3rd episode was just a fluke and the writers were still finding the voice of Chester’s Mill. I told myself that Alexander Koch just needed a short grace period to find his footing with the Junior character.

If “Outbreak” is any indication, I was right.
