Are the writers Zombies?
19 June 2021
Warning: Spoilers
Just got done watching this. The premise in the beginning was not bad, but the writers just did not know what to do with it. They squandered the Northern Lights element completely. Then in the 2nd to the last season, they fired all the Zombie Writers and hired Zombie chimps and gave them acid. They also dropped one of the main characters during this season (but she came back in the last season). The actors do a good job making up for the lack luster writing.

Game of Thrones (2011–2019)
6/10
Worst Ending Ever
1 April 2021
Warning: Spoilers
This was a 9.5 up until the 2nd to the last season, and then it started to decline. But the worst part of this was the ending. Never before have I seen a franchise napalm their syndication potential like GOT did. We use to watch this over and over until the last season and now it is like, why would you want to watch it again when they could not come up with a descent ending?

Jericho (2006–2008)
4/10
Close to home but impractical
19 February 2021
Warning: Spoilers
With current events this show was surprisingly predictive (A Right wing group of fanatics would try and take over the government) considering it was created in 2006. Having said that there were just some parts that did not jive with the geopolitical landscape. If California, Oregon and Washington had formed a country and been "The Good Guys" that would have been a much better take on the main theme. Texas is much more likely to have been Cheyenne in the story line. Now to some of the side themes, they were not original. It was like the creators were picking and choosing from past TV shows and movies and saying "let's see if this will work". There are good parts to the series, and the acting is pretty good as well from several of the characters, but the series had more of the feel of a soap opera than an action adventure show. Inappropriate music in places, the wrong music for what was happening on camera.

Shameless (2011–2021)
9/10
Great show, but you need Fiona
18 January 2021
Warning: Spoilers
Watched the first episode and did not like it, I was about to take it off my watch list but decided to give it another try. Glad I did, you might want to watch the pilot 2nd. This is a compelling story about Fiona Gallagher and the challenges of her life. There are some great secondary plots with the rest of the family and friends, but the show always keeps the drama dial at 11. I have started to watch season 10, no Fiona, so far it is not as compelling so I may be downgrading this review in the future.

Star Trek: Enterprise (2001–2005)
7/10
The Worst SiFi Theme song ever
24 August 2018
I am currently re watching this series in order and as I suspected I missed a few the first time around. So this time I am seeing them in order and without the week long wait between episodes.

I delayed doing this re watch because of the theme song, it is like wrapping a pizza in a wet paper bag. I have always thought that the theme song played a roll in the early Cancellation of the show.

I think the cast does a great job portraying the characters and I would like to see them again. The first 2 seasons where great, I was worried about season 3 and the Zindi, but it actually turned out better than I thought it would. Then at the end of season 3 they did a Nazi theme, ugh!. Please writers, NEVER do a Nazi star Trek again. It was beat to death in previous Star Treks.

Also, I really do not want to see Enterprise in any manifestation destroyed or significantly damaged. It just is not necessary, let's allow the heroes to keep their ride.

Well that is about it.

This is like Game of Thrones level entertainment
21 March 2018
From the first episode we have been loving this show. We did not find it until 2 seasons were created, we have been watching it and can not wait for the next episode. Not only is the topic new but the way it is being filmed is different, it is awesome. Then there is the acting, this group of actors really make this story work.

The 100 (2014–2020)

Surprise Great show Found by Accident
13 June 2017
So I am going through shows on Netflix looking for something to fill the gaps between Game of Throwns and The Walking Dead. I found this show by pure chance. I decided to start watching it and could not stop. Interesting plot line and compelling characters, it is actually a network show and I get that network but I never have seen a promo for it. It is another show I want to see go on for many more seasons.

Idiocracy (2006)
8/10
This is a great Movie
30 August 2010
The rating the critics gave this movie is wrong, this is a much better movie that the star rating implies. While I can understand why some people "won't get it" (and the movie will explain why there might be lots of these people), Some people are going to love it (and at this point in time there should still be lots of these people). It is very important to watch the movie from the start. If you miss the beginning you will not be able to fully appreciate what is going on. I expect the people who gave the review missed the start. This movie incorporates many aspects of today's culture in an alternate view of the future, and while it's creators took the scenario to the extreme, the movie actually makes a relevant comment on the future.
