TV REVIEW – ‘THE ALIENIST’ (Season 1/2018)

Back before the turn of the century (as in the turn from the 1800s to the 1900s) people with mental abnormalities were considered as being outside their own minds. Aliens, if you will. The people who treated them were, therefore, called “alienists.” Now that that bit of background is out of the way, let us…

TV REVIEW – ‘THE PUNISHER’ (Season 1/2017)

We truly live in extraordinary times.  We have went from the beginnings of comics as a form of entertainment in print form with the first Action Comics, to rivaling studios delivering characters that not only became household names, but entrenched itself into our very cultural landscape.  As with comics, TV and Movies have always been…

TV REVIEW – ‘GAME OF THRONES’ (Season 7/2017)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past several years, or you’re just one of ‘those people’ who love nothing more than announcing to anyone who will listen (and be honest, probably a few who aren’t) that you’ve never watched a single episode, you no doubt know that HBO‘s fantasy juggernaut Game of Thrones…
