    American Horror Story, Ep.3.07: “The Dead” stumbles over vexing questions of race and gender politics

    It only took seven episodes, but American Horror Story: Coven finally injects a bit of three-way necrophilia. New alliances are formed and bonds are broken, as opposing forces and clashing personalities collide. “The Dead” movies the plot forward with some interesting twists, but in the end, it leaves us with a few troubling questions.

    The Walking Dead, Ep. 4.06, “Live Bait”

    Anyone who listens to our Walking Dead podcast has heard me comment on how much I would like to see the writers of the Walking Dead take bigger risks. Just last week I mentioned how I’d love to see an entire episode that doesn’t feature Rick and the gang. It’s no secret, The Walking Dead always does better with their more focused installments. I also stated how much I’d like to see more flashbacks featured on the show. That said, I also made it very clear, that I wasn’t necessarily happy with the sudden return of The Governor in the final moments of last week’s fifth instalment, “Internment”. The sixth episode of season four titled “Live Bait,” gives me everything I asked for, but there is one problem: it revolves entirely around the one-eyed villain from season three, who most of would prefer to never see again. And I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this decision. More

    Essential Viewing for Fans of ‘The Hunger Games’: Part One

    Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Games book series has often been compared with Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels, primarily because both center on a young female protagonist and has become phenomenons for their shared young-adult demo. This is arguably an insult to the novel and the big-screen adaptations since The Hunger Games is leagues above Twilight in artistic credibility. […] More

    The Walking Dead, Ep. 4.05, “Internment” – entertaining but not completely satisfactory

    About 20 minutes into “Internment,” and I couldn’t help but think I was missing both Michonne and Carol greatly. Both actresses have been at the top of their game all season, and it helps that the writers have done such a wonderful job in building (or rebuilding) their characters. But thankfully for some of us, “Internment” wholly belonged to Hershel. Scott Wilson is a great actor, arguably one of the best in the long list of names in the cast, but this is the first time the character has taken front and center in an episode since he first appeared back in season two. And boy did he shine. More

    American Horror Story, Ep.3.05: “Burn, Witch, Burn!”

    “Burn, Witch, Burn! deals with the fallout of last weeks climax which saw Cordelia blinded, when assaulted at a nightclub by a hooded assailant who threw sulphuric acid in her face. Meanwhile, Marie Leveau’s army of dead storm Miss Robichaux’s Academy. The fifth installment of Coven is immersed in the guilt of cruel mothers. LaLaurie is forced to come to terms with the pain and suffering she inflicted on her own daughters who rise from their graves, and Fiona feels responsible for Delia’s attack. On top of all this, two witches display new unexpected powers as Zoe manages to break Laveau’s spell and defeat her zombie army with only a few words, and Delia receives a startling clairvoyant vision of her husband’s murderous and cheating ways.
