It’s been an entirely cold cold winter and hopefully Spring is just around the corner. So time to start posting again to the blog!
I am looking forward to discussing a bunch of Easter TV specials:
- Killing Jesus – NatGeo
- Finding Jesus – Faith, Fact, and Forgery – CNN
- AD – NBC
And the premiere of season 2 of Penny Dreadful.

The Strain – FX
The summer 2014 TV shows are ending so I thought I would begin writing some short reviews. Note: The finale is somewhat SPOILED for The Strain.
The Set and Art Design were pretty good. I would have liked more cool sets at the end of this season.
The plot was mostly interesting, but I really didn’t care too much for Eph’s family story.
I guess I am not gonna see Cory Stoll lose his wig to a vampire.
Why isn’t the rest of New York in a panic? Where is the National guard, shouldn’t they know enough to go after the zombies/vampires?
I guess overall I liked the premise, but I never really felt worried for our characters (except I did like the scenes in the gas station convenience store). The Strain will be back next summer.

Still have questions or just want to revisit the many questions of LOST… Click on the link below.
It will take to a screen rant post (updated in August 2014) that does a great job at characterizing the finale questions and provides cogent answers.

Click the link below to vote for the LOST character you are most like.
I think I would be Sayid, but I ended up voting for lucky number 7 (she never gets the love).
Thanks to IMDB for hosting the poll.
Here is another poll. In this one, she does get the love.

Best episode of LOST… The Constant
Worst episode of LOST… Jack’s tatoo (Stranger in a Strange Land)
And more from the Producers in this article from Esquire back in May.
Ten years later, they talk about their mistakes, their successes, the worst episode, and why we’re all still talking about this damn show

Extant – CBS
The summer 2014 TV shows are ending so I thought I would begin writing some short reviews. Note: The finale is somewhat SPOILED for Extant.
The Set and Art Design were cool and futuristic but also livable and comfortable. Good job there.
Halle Berry’s acting was spot on throughout the series. She was probably the only character I really cared about. I did like Katie Sparks, but alas Katie was neither here or there (if you know what I mean).
The story wasn’t too bad but the execution was too slow especially during the middle episodes.
Why was Halle trying to save the world again? Wasn’t “the offspring” already here on Earth. Won’t the spores be back to find him?
If people knew (or were told) they were seeing a mirage (albeit a pretty convincing mirage) wouldn’t that take the fun out of seeing your loved ones alive again? I mean the characters still know the folks they used to love are really dead, right?
I guess overall I liked the premise, and some parts of the episodes, and Halle Berry, but I don’t need this show to come back next summer.
