The weirdest-looking time machines in all Science Fiction

Remember The Project Tic-Toc, a secret experimental time machine of the U.S Army in Time Tunnel? The DeLorean from Back To The Future? The TARDIS Type 40 time travel capsule from Doctor Who? The eight-spoked Frozen Wheel from Lost? Not to mention The Hot Tub Time Machine… They are indeed the weirdest-looking time machines in all Science Fiction and ... More
‘The Newsroom’ Season 2 Premiere: How Aaron Sorkin Saved the HBO Drama

Even though I enjoyed watching Season 1, it wasn’t perfect. Andrew Romano explains it perfectly on The Daily Beast. And apparently, the best is yet to come in Season 2! The effect is revelatory. Once McAvoy & Co. are no longer forced to serve primarily as mouthpieces for their creator’s political views and mechanisms of his journalistic ... More
The end nears for Walter White of ‘Breaking Bad’

Roger Smith, author of thrillers Dust Devils and more recently Capture, tweeted about this article from the Los Angeles Times. Vince Gilligan, creator of the brilliant Breaking Bad, talks Walter White, metaphysics and morals. Most Hollywood creative types won’t openly judge their characters. Judgment, the reasoning goes, corrupts honest, organic ... More
Dexter and Morality: Is Dexter Moral?

In 2007, I wrote about the TV Show: Dexter and The Shield: bad is good. When I first watched the show, it did feel right, I explain it in my article: […] Some people would say killing serial killers or child molesters is OK, some others may think Mackey is doing right using the same methods the gangs use in the streets. I’m against death penalty and ... More
Person of Interest: what if The Machine was real?

I love watching  TV shows and I already mentioned the long list of the ones I wouldn’t miss. I lately started to watch Person of Interest, a crime drama television series from CBS: an ex-CIA hitman and a scientist team up to prevent crimes before they happen. Honestly, I didn’t like it until the 6th or 7th episode. It looked a lot like Burn ... More
Curb Your Enthusiasm: Pretty, pretty, pretty soon!

As a big fan of Curb Your Enthusiasm TV show, I am very excited about Season 8. This time Larry David takes on New York City and I can’t wait to watch the new episodes. But if you want to know more about the upcoming season that will premiere this year on HBO, you might be disappointed… The only place to go is on the CYE page on HBO website. In ... More
The return of Burn Notice, Dark Blue, True Blood and Mad Men

I really enjoy watching TV shows. Unfortunately, Ugly Betty, 24, Lost and Heroes are no more. Not to mention Bryan Fuller’s whimsical Pushing Daisies! So what is left to watch this Summer? Luckily, several of my favorite shows. Burn Notice is on my top list, I already wrote about the show: Burn Notice Vs Leverage? I’d better get burned!. If I ... More
Seinfeld is back (kind of…): Giddyup!

The Seinfeld Reunion. Any big fan of the classic sitcom had dreamt about it since Seinfeld ended. It was 11 years ago. And I have to admit I was and still is a huge fan of Seinfeld. The best sitcom ever (and I watch many TV shows: Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Nip/Tuck, House M.D… Addicted!, The Big Bang Theory: Am I really that kind of Nerd?, Dexter and ... More
Burn Notice Vs Leverage? I’d better get burned!

It has been a long time I didn’t talk about TV shows, last time was in June 2008. Since then I had the pleasure (well it is not always such a pleasure…) to watch new shows and I have had some great surprises. Among them is ‘Burn Notice’, a comedy-drama/action show created by Matt Nix. I wasn’t expecting much from this show, ... More
Lost, Battlestar Galactica, Nip/Tuck, House M.D… Addicted!

More than a year ago, in April 2007 (time flies!), I wrote a post about Dexter and The Shield and the fact that bad characters behavior can make good (even great) shows. Action-drama, science fiction, comedy-drama (dramedy), medical-drama, situation comedy, police-drama; television series cover many topics with as many different approaches. I am always ... More
