Impractical Jokers: The Complete Third Season

October 28th, 2015|

Plot: What's it about? You know, I think I've found more "hidden gems" while channel surfing in the past few years than in the last ten years combined.  What?  I guess what I mean is that there is so much television programming on these days, it's nearly impossible to keep track of what's on and what's not unless you do a little exploring.  Case in point, a few years ago [...]

iZombie: The Complete First Season

October 19th, 2015|

Plot: What's it about? Ahhh...zombies! They've made a big comeback in the last decade and have no signs of slowing down. Much like their nature, the zombie is a juggernaut that seems to have a life of its own. Shows like The Walking Dead have probably made the most of this newfound love for the undead, though there are dozens of films that have cashed in on these brain-loving specimens. [...]

Jane the Virgin: The Complete First Season

October 16th, 2015|

Plot: What's it about? At last count, I think I've got about 1298+ cable TV channels to choose from. Yeah, most of them aren't HD so I won't even consider watching something if it doesn't make full use of my television. Then again, a LOT of them are, so I've never got an excuse to say "there's nothing on." Then again, I've not said that in a while since I've [...]

Impractical Jokers: Season Two

October 29th, 2014|

"Lar-ry!" Plot: What's it about? You know, I think I've found more "hidden gems" while channel surfing in the past few years than in the last ten years combined.  What?  I guess what I mean is that there is so much television programming on these days, it's nearly impossible to keep track of what's on and what's not unless you do a little exploring.  Case in point, a few years [...]

The Mentalist: Season Six

October 3rd, 2014|

Plot: What's it about? There aren't a lot of good television dramas out there. Well, ok, there are, but they aren't on network television anymore.  Thanks to the success of shows like Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Game of Thrones, more and more shows are leaving the networks for a little more creative freedom on cable. And who's to blame them?  But a few years ago a little show called [...]

Swamp People: Season Four

February 19th, 2014|

Plot: What's it about? Now to be honest, I'd never watched an episode of Swamp People before this review. So aside from assuming it was people who lived in or worked in a swamp, I wasn't sure what to expect. As it turns out, the show follows a group of alligator hunters who troll the swamps for their bounties in a 30 day hunting season. Each hunter is given a [...]

Impractical Jokers: Season One

December 20th, 2013|

Plot: What's it about? You know, I think I've found more "hidden gems" while channel surfing in the past few years than in the last ten years combined.  What?  I guess what I mean is that there is so much television programming on these days, it's nearly impossible to keep track of what's on and what's not unless you do a little exploring.  Case in point, a few years ago [...]

Adventure Time: Jake the Dad

November 14th, 2013|

Plot: What's it about? I'd never heard of (or most likely would have never heard of) Adventure Time if it weren't for my youngest step son. I call him the "evil" one, though he's actually a nice little chap.  So here's the thing - there's this show called Adventure Time (mentioned twice already, I know) and it's one of his favorites. Did I forget to mention that he's a Freshman [...]

Family Guy: Volume 11

Duck Dynasty: Season Three

August 14th, 2013|

Plot: What's it about? One of the most popular shows on television, Duck Dynasty follows the Robertson family, who made a fortune selling duck calls and other outdoorsman related goods. Unlike most families featured in reality television, the Robertsons don't have much drama and are faith based people. So the show isn't about sex, drugs, and family strife, in fact quite the opposite. In this third season, we watch as [...]

Robot & Frank

March 4th, 2013|

Plot: What's it about? One of the benefits of doing this site is that I get sent a very wide variety of titles, some I've heard of and others I've not.  I'd say that Robot & Frank is something that I'd usually pass over, but something about it stuck out to me.  Was it the cast?  James Mardsen, Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon and Liv Tyler aren't exactly the hottest out [...]
