  • Show rec: Les Revenants “The Returned”. French zombies who still have comprehension, who have sex and kids. Weird and intertwined. It comes on Channel 4 in France, but it can be found on http://www.primewire.ag.

  • love the show, gang! sorry it took me so long to board the ship, but i am here now.

    i agree with you about the summer being a slow time for new shows. instead of suffering through True Blood, why not go back and review some old shows? would love to hear what you guys think about a show like The Shield or maybe Justified. Just an idea.

    while i was watching The Venture Bros, one of the ‘bumps’ said about Man of Steel “The longest episode of Dragonball Z we have ever seen” and that was pretty accurate. i liked the movie and agree with most of your points (i liked the fight at the end, did not think it dragged one) but i don’t think that there was any way that this flick would live up to the anticipation. it was like the Matrix sequels.. you were excited when the sequels were announced, but when you got ’em… pretty wak. But loved the fact that you brought up that Superman killed before with the Superman 2 mention. All the folks complaining about the ending to Man of Steel seem to have selective memory.

    Top 5 Superhero Films: Spider-Man 2, The Dark Knight, The Avengers, X-Men 2, Iron Man.

    I too was disappointed with Age of Ultron. It started with promise and just ended up just being another hand in my pocket taking my money and giving nothing back. Considering that comics (Marvel and DC) live for their ‘events’ now, if this is the crap i can expect, time to move on to Dark Horse.

    thanks for the show guys.

      You are very welcome thanks for the thought out response. I really need to see Man Of Steel again because I feel like I would like it more the second time.

      Age of Ultron will haunt me forever.

  • You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of
