Just a quick check-in today. The stars aligned to give me a fairly great week of in-theater B-Movie and odd TV watching and thought you might have some fun with it. Started off with the fantastic documentary That Guy Dick Miller (2014), currently available streaming on Amazon Prime. Miller was one of the most prolific […]Read more "What I’m Watching"
Just some things I’ve been musing upon that don’t deserve whole blogs to themselves. Played The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimentional Insurance Agent for the nerdlings (now 11 on Tuesday and 14, respectively) and their enjoyment confirmed that I do indeed have a teen boy trapped in my head, driving the humor train. Not sure […]Read more "Random Thoughts: Father’s Day Edition"
Well, that sucked less than NBC’s abysmal version of Peter Pan two Christmases back. As in I didn’t shut it off in 40 minutes and refuse to ever go back and finish it. But that’s really all I can say for it. It was clear that a lot of money and effort went into building […]Read more "Thoughts on Grease: Live!"

For earlier installments see Part 1 and Part 2 My apologies in advance. I try very hard to keep these entries PG-rated and curb my natural inclinations to swear like the sweary-person I am. But watching this cinematic atrocity has stripped my resolve bare. If you find, shall we say, salty language offensive, please feel […]Read more "The Three Faces of Wonder Woman: A Television History – Part 3"
For part one of our series click here. So ABC’s first shot at launching a Wonder Woman TV series did not exactly hit it out of the park. But they still thought the property had potential (and I assume, didn’t want to waste their rights to the character), if only they returned her to her […]Read more "The Three Faces of Wonder Woman: A Television History – Part 2"
At five years old, there was no-one in the world that I wanted to grow up to be more than Wonder Woman, more specifically Wonder Woman as embodied by the fabulous Lynda Carter. Sadly, instead of a statuesque brunette, I turned out to be a medium-short, prematurely grey-haired sorta-ginger; of good hearty peasant stock, with […]Read more "The Three Faces of Wonder Woman: A Television History – Part 1"
