Sometimes Survivor is all shock and sizzle, but sometimes things just go exactly the way you expect. This episode was one of those.
First up is the Redemption Duel: Semhar vs. Christine. The order of the day is balancing a wooden statue on top of a long, thin pole. Semhar psyched herself up for the [...]
I received Donkey Kong Country Returns last year as a Christmas gift. It’s a game I wanted, and would have bought for myself, but there were two things preventing me from devouring the game immediately:
I started playing a two-player game with my brother (who purchased it for me) on Christmas Eve and completed three [...]
Yes, I’m still determined to get caught up by Thanksgiving.
Episode two opens with Semhar crying on Redemption Island, wondering how people can be so cold-hearted as to vote her out. (Presumably she wouldn’t be cold-hearted if she’d stayed, and the person she voted for left instead. This little inconsistancy is never addressed.)
For the past seven years Saw has been a Halloween ritual. Though the quality of the series declined as it went on (and eventually petered out on a lame 3D outing), I still enjoyed each new installment and I’m sad I didn’t get my fix this year.
There is a benefit of finality, though: I [...]
I mentioned a long, long time ago that I was slightly miffed when NBC cancelled Kings. At the time I had watched, I think, three episodes out of the thirteen that aired. I was more upset about losing the show because I was intrigued at its premise, rather than it’s actual merit.
Well, this says [...]
Often touted as Miyazaki’s best film, My Neighbor Totoro has been defined as a large hole in my movie-watching experience for far too long. More people have recommended this movie to me than have recommended an ER visit for a punctured lung. I think one guy may have actually suggested Totoro could deal with the [...]
I’ve been devouring the printed word on my Kindle ever since I got it last week (why yes, I did spend $180 so I could get my hands on Dance with Dragons nine hours early… why do you ask?). I’ve always loved reading, but the truth is I’ve never been that big of a reader, [...]
Having just completed A Dance with Dragons, the only thing my brain wants to do is spill a long, rambling blog post about it. So that’s what I’m going to do. I think I can say what I need to say without SPOILERZ, but please forgive me if two or three slip out.
On the [...]
I think it goes without saying that I’ve invested every waking moment today in A Dance with Dragons. Plus, in an effort to maximize the number of waking moments I seem to have somehow only gotten a couple hours of sleep. Work tonight is going to be a bear.
I spent the first couple hours [...]
My main reaction to the ending of Lost was, “Wow! What a great ending!” This is pretty high praise considering I avoided the series for so long because I was in no way convinced the writers were building to anything worthwhile. Some fans of the show have tried to sell me on the idea that [...]
