Worming Through 'The Walking Dead': JSS

Scott Gimple’s time as showrunner of The Walking Dead has featured the splitting up of storylines a few times at this point. It’s a good way to shine the spotlight all around the cast and make sure people aren’t neglected. You’re still going to end up neglecting some characters. Have you seen the size of…

'The Knick' is Ready to Take Its Place Among TV's Best Dramas

This post contains some spoilers for The Knick’s first season. Cinemax isn’t the first place you think of when you want to watch a premiere drama. You probably call it “Skinemax” or think of it as faux-HBO. It’s certainly not the type of place you expect to find a show like The Knick. The Knick…

Worming Through 'The Walking Dead': First Time Again

The Walking Dead returned for its sixth season last night. Sixth! Time sure does fly when you’re watching people get eaten alive. When last we left the Dead crew, Rick had lost his mind for the 3rd or 4th time and shot a man in the face during an Alexandria town hall meeting. I mean,…

Burn 'Gotham' Down: The Last Laugh

Hello everyone. I apparently hate myself enough to continue watching Gotham for writing purposes. My hate of this show comes from a deep dark place down in my belly. I flat out dropped it last year because it was just so so so bad. Just because a show is based on a comic book property…

Coping with a broken smartphone

  After bitching about OnePlus the other day, Carl Pei got the last laugh when my OnePlus One careened from my hand to the floor. The screen spidered from directly above the camera to the other side of the phone and down to the bottom. The touchscreen was completely unresponsive and my Project Fi Nexus 5X is still a month away from being…

Humble Pleas: How about some common sense?

Welcome to my Monday morning collection of thoughts. Let’s talk about guns I don’t know about you but I am getting to the point where I am desensitized to all of the mass murders that happen in this country and that is a terrifying thing. A term like “campus shooting” has become a part of our lexicon. Multiple lives…

My Friend Ed

  Ed is both a friend and a client of mine. When he first came out to train with me, I had no idea just how hard he’s battled in his life; nor did I know that the fact he was even in the gym with me training was a pretty massive deal in and…

‘Fear the Walking Dead’: Zombie Spinoff Has a Long Way to Go

AMC’s new spinoff series Fear the Walking Dead defeats the entire purpose of the original Walking Dead. Robert Kirkman set out to see what happens after the zombie movie is over. How does society move forward once it has completely broken down? Rick Grimes wakes up from his coma after the breakdown has already occurred…

Life Hacks: Better Call Jimbo

It was a sad day when I had to tell my 100 year old great grandma that she could no longer play with Legos. Keeping over 1000 butterflies in your trunk is a magical way to confuse a cop when he asks to search your car. You can’t blame every fart on the dog. Pregnant…

Life Hacks: Heat Stroke

“That dresser is from Ikea!” – A woman watching porn. If you knock on my door and try to sell me something, I’m probably going to try and keep you for a few days. It’s almost as if Cialis commercials WANT me to bang a senior citizen! The CONstitution sounds so negative. Why not call…

True Detective: Omega Station

Oh, thank Jeebus, we’ve finally reached the end of SoCal police investigate the great jewel heist of 1992. That’s what was going on, right? And something about the trains. Who the hell knows. True Detective season 2 has come and gone like a tornado consisting of cigarette smoke and cocaine. Thusly, an odd season of…

Thoughts on 'Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation'

Sticking to the Formula The fifth Mission: Impossible is a very competent action movie. Christopher McQuarrie seems to be marking off a checklist as he chronicles the latest adventures of Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF* crew. Tom Cruise gets to run a whole lot? Check. Cruise gets to perform a crazy stunt that…
