TV Series Review: The Wire

by Steve Lancaster9/18/17
The Wire is a five-season crime drama from HBO. It is available on Amazon Prime. The series is 60 episodes and the first thing I recommend is that you think of each season as an extremely long movie. Each season has a general theme that reappears in the next season most often as a side note to some other investigation. More » • (231 views)

TV Series Review: True Detective

by Steve Lancaster8/26/17
True Detective is available on Amazon or as part of your HBO subscription.  •  True Detective should be much better than it is. I had previously avoided watching this 2-season series. In part, because I dislike Woody Harrelson as an actor. I find him one-dimensional and stiff. More » • (282 views)

by David Norris4/2/17
If you want to see how Marxism and Satanism are kissing cousins, then “Salem” is the show for you.  In all honesty though, I cannot recommend that anyone ever watch this program. More » • (1392 views)

TV Series Review: True Blood

TrueBloodby Brad Nelson2/13/16
Here’s another HBO soap opera, spiced up by liberal amounts of T&A whose point, one might suppose, is to disguise the fact that you are indeed watching a glorified soap opera. More » • (1164 views)

TV Series Review: Narcos

Narcosby David Norris8/29/15
This superbly produced Netflix series is part crime drama, part history lesson, and is definitely worth watching. I didn’t have a lot of background about the Columbian drug cartels going into this, but much of the ‘headlines’ from the 1980’s came popping back into my head as the story unfolded.

I partook of a The Waltons marathon yesterday. And although I often say that everything I needed to know I learned from the original Star Trek, that is not quite true. You have to throw this show into the mix as well. More » • (1781 views)

TV Series Review: Salamander

Salamanderby Brad Nelson   8/24/14
There are oodles of cop or detective series on Netflix available for streaming. I try a new one out every now and then and I’m consistently bored by the lack of engaging stories. One cop show just blurs into another. More » • (2419 views)

Why I No Longer Watch NCIS

NCISby David Ray  7/21/14
I was a huge fan of NCIS once. I recognized David McCullum and became intrigued seeing The Man from U.N.C.L.E. dude. From here we explore the political component of my once favorite show. More » • (2935 views)
