“Alas, all of this development was rendered moot afterward. This is because, like Star Trek: Voyager, Andromeda basically jettisoned its premise by its second season and was content with simply being an action show, with an ineffectual captain to boot.”
“Gordon Ramsay’s show, after seven seasons, has become a highly processed, overly salty, homogeneous mess.”
“Underneath the big plot twists, the show still had all the same fundamental flaws; they were just less obvious when the characters were actually, you know, doing stuff.”
Zorro de Mayo comes to a close (two months later) as Sofie Liv joins Renegado to review a cartoon show about a future (all the way in the year 2015!) descendant of Zorro who fights for justice while riding a motorcycle instead of a horse. And did we mention his high-tech gadgets, which include a Z-Pod and a Z-Phone? No, really.
Renegado takes a look at the pilot that started the huge phenomenon that is Adventure Time. Get ready for an insane trip... literally!
Zorro de Mayo goes Japanese with the first and probably only anime based on Zorro. Also, the main character is blonde!
Lizzie, Jane, Charlotte, Pride and Prejudice as a morality tale, and why Ursa likes Lydia a lot better now. In the final episode of her Pride and Prejudice series, she looks at the Emmy Award-winning YouTube series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries!
Zorro de Mayo continues as Renegado takes a look at the different adaptations of the character in animated form. In part 1, he's covering The New Adventures of Zorro (1981) and The New Adventures of Zorro (1997). Wait... What?
“If you film a duck and say it’s not a duck, it’s still a fucking duck. No thinking person in their right mind could look at this scene and call it ‘consensual’.”
“Portlandia seems to be a decent show. So of course Netflix thought since I watched that, I’d enjoy a reality show about drag queens.”
“Here’s what everyone’s missing: Jaime never really changed. Indeed, the defining flaw in his character is his complete inability to change.”
“Fallon might not be that funny, and he might not get stellar ratings, but he seems to be going where TV is headed: bite-sized chunks of entertainment that can be shared on blogs and social media and hopefully get people interested enough to actually watch the show (or at least DVR it).”
A week before its grand 50th anniversary, Sofie takes a look back at the phenomenon of Doctor Who (which also happens to be one of her favorite shows), and talks about why she finds it so appealing.
Sofie takes a look at two new DC shows currently airing on Cartoon Network.
Phil Buni's March Medical Madness concludes later than expected (he was busy with Easter--hah!) with this brief rant on the hospital comedy/drama Scrubs.
Time Travel Month continues with Phil's very first top ten list! He reveals the top ten darkest moments of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, a 2011 anime series where a schoolgirl named Madoka becomes a Magical Girl and battles dangerous monsters known as "witches".
