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 – ‘STRANGER THINGS’ (Season 2/2017)

TV REVIEW – ‘MST3K: THE RETURN’ (Season 11/2017)

TV REVIEW – ‘STRANGER THINGS’ (Season 1/2016)

E.T. meets Scanners/Altered States meets Close Encounters of the Third Kind meets Goonies meets Silent Hill, all with the John Carpenter soundtrack from Escape From New York or The Thing… In the simplest terms, this is how best I can find (which still doesn’t quite explain it) to define Netflix’s latest original series Stranger Things.…
