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.

Greetings Nerds! This past Sunday, we were treated to the new Seth McFarlane-created sci-fi drama/comedy The Orville. While this writer enjoyed it, and most actual humans on social media tend to agree with me, having a whopping 91% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes; it seems the majority of the stiff, underwear-in-tight-spaces TV critics out there…

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…
