How Fred Killed Wesley Wyndam-Price (part 1)

How Fred Killed Wesley Wyndam-Price (part 1)

The Fall and Fall of Wesley Wyndam-Price (and Why I Can Watch it Over and Over Again) I have watched BtVS & Angel, in full, about 15 times each (and Firefly about 6 times, but i’m catching up) The Rise and Fall of Wesley Wyndam-Price Angel’s original side-kick was half-demon Doyle (played by Glenn Quinn) … Continue reading

Firefly – if you love Joss Whedon . . .

Firefly – if you love Joss Whedon . . .

As a BtVS/Angel devotee, I often find myself asking other fans for their thoughts on “Firefly”, Whedon’s third TV series which he started at the end of Angel. I am horrified at how many people who adore BtVS & Angel have not or are not interested in seeing Firefly. I get the reluctance, I really do … Continue reading

Re-visiting The Sopranos

Re-visiting The Sopranos

LIke most cinephiles in the Western world, I was and am a huge Sopranos fan. I spent over eight years, or six seasons to be precise half in love with Tony Soprano and Christopher Moltisanti – my biggest issue was who to choose – the charismatic, sociopathic Boss or his sexy, violent, drug-addicted protege. I … Continue reading

Alcatraz S1

Alcatraz S1

I just finished watching the first sex episodes of Alcatraz. the new Fox series exec produced by JJ Abrams of Lost fame.

In Lost it was … Continue reading

With some people that would be a sign of a really, REALLY great show and this is a good show, but I am putting up a disclaimer: At the moment, my choices for the day involve choosing either: A: … Continue reading

Reservoir Docs

Reservoir Docs

I like Tim Roth. I don’t think he is the greatest actor since Philip Seymour-Hoffman and he has made some dodgy choices in roles but he is charming, and he can fill a screen – large or small. My first date with Roth was seeing him in Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs and he was sublime in … Continue reading

I’m not sick, but i’m not well …..

I discovered “Peep Show” somewhat late in the game and it took me a little while to warm up to Jez & Mark but once I got on board with the psycho-social commentary and interior monologue that the show is based around, I was hooked. “Peep Show” is based on two London lads, Jeremy Usbourne … Continue reading

The X-Files S1

The X-Files S1

I was never a big fan of the X-Files in it’s hey-day. I watched some episodes and usually enjoyed them but there was something a bit science-ey that threw me off back then.Over the years I have watched episodes spasmodically and I actually may have already watched S1 in order from E1 as many of … Continue reading
