Jab’s Disney Reviews: Gargoyles

One thousand years ago, superstition and the sword ruled.It was a time of darkness. It was a world of fear.It was the age of gargoyles.Stone by day, warriors by night, we were betrayed by the humans we had sworn to protect, frozen in stone by a magic spell for a thousand years.Now, here in Manhattan, the spell is broken, and we live again!We are defenders … Continue reading Jab’s Disney Reviews: Gargoyles

Entertainment Rex: September 2021, part 2

I feel like this will be a very short discussion this portion of the month, as I could probably just plug in “I played Fallout 4, like, A LOT” and be done with it. Why did I not play more of that game way back when I bought it? MOVIES After a movie-heavy start to the month, I really tapered off in the back half … Continue reading Entertainment Rex: September 2021, part 2

Netflix Marvel Retrospective – Daredevil Season 1

Intro Like my Agents of SHIELD retrospective, I thought it was appropriate to talk about the other corner of Marvel TV: the Netflix shows. It’s quite impressive that they seem to run the gamut between beloved and despised to the point that certain actors playing certain roles are considered definitive while others are considered the worst thing to possibly happen to live action comicbook projects. … Continue reading Netflix Marvel Retrospective – Daredevil Season 1

Top Ten: Fictional Mothers

Mothers and their children share a special something something. Hey, I don’t know what to tell you; my own mom was the dirt fucking worst. All kinds of abusive and really just the absolute pits. She died a long time ago, though, so it’s fine. I won. But what are you, my therapist? This isn’t what you are here for! You’re here for the Top Ten … Continue reading Top Ten: Fictional Mothers

Agents of SHIELD Retrospect – Part 2

The Bad Welcome back to our two part Agents of SHIELD retrospective.  If you missed part 1 (and why would you read the second part before the first), I went over some of the things I loved about the series.  As you probably figured out, I’ll be talking about the worst aspects of the series in this part, which will likely earn a lot of … Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Retrospect – Part 2

Agents of SHIELD Retrospect – Part 1

The Good Stuff In August of 2020, the Marvel TV show Agents of SHIELD aired its 136th and final episode after seven seasons with little fanfare.  While TV shows come and go and seven seasons is quite an achievement, this particular show is very interesting.  I still remember seeing a trailer for the pilot episode in a movie theater, I remember #ItsAllConnected being slapped on … Continue reading Agents of SHIELD Retrospect – Part 1

Teen Titans Season One Review

No commercial more instantly turned me off to the idea of watching a television series than the infamous “Fuck Batman” ad that gave us our first look at Titans on the DCUniverse streaming service. When that was my introduction to the series, it was easy enough to write it off as “not for me”, and we even bashed it on older episodes of our show. To be … Continue reading Teen Titans Season One Review

Entertainment Rex: June 2021 part 2

My wife wants us to paint our bathroom. I sometimes worry that she has forgotten who she married. There is nothing in the world I would rather do than nothing. Every so often she has grand designs on some project or another. She’ll ask “Do you want to [do a thing I don’t want to do] today?” as if she doesn’t know the answer. (The … Continue reading Entertainment Rex: June 2021 part 2

Entertainment Rex: June 2021

I went to the movies for the first time since February 2020 today! God, I have really missed that. Obviously in the COVID era, I have developed quite the affinity for watching movies at home, but I have always adored the cinema. Watching movies at home is fine, if a bit distracting. Watching them in the movie theater always feels more like an experience. The … Continue reading Entertainment Rex: June 2021

Jab’s Reviews: HBO’s Oz

“OZ… that’s the name on the street for the Oswald State Maximum Security Correctional Facility- Level Four” This show stands out as one of my all-time favorites, despite a few hiccups. This was HBO’s very-first original series, before “The Sopranos”, “Sex and the City”, “The Wire” and others came THIS. The brainchild of series creator Tom Fontana, “Oz” takes place in the Oswald State Maximum … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: HBO’s Oz

Gone are the days of the boob tube; TV now presents some of the most engaging, thoughtful, and poignant forms of entertainment across all media. There are also a lot of Look At These Sexy People Be Sexy … Continue reading Draft: Best TV Shows To Debut After 2010

Entertainment Rex: March 2021

It’s the Ides of March! I don’t… I don’t know what that means. Something to do with Julius Caesar being assassinated, but it isn’t called that BECAUSE of it. The Ides were a thing before he died. It’s like… if I was assassinated on Christmas, Christmas wouldn’t be famous for THAT. (That got dark fast this article…) Wasn’t he warned, “beware the Ides of March”? … Continue reading Entertainment Rex: March 2021
