Chuck vs. The Lack of a Third Season

NBC’s Chuck has not been picked up for a third season yet.  WTF?!?!  Seriously?!?!  Also, there are rumors that it might not get a third season based upon lackluster ratings.  Yikes!  A universe without Chuck scarcely bears thinking about. Josh Schwartz, executive producer and co-creator of Chuck, explained that the second-season finale (airing tonight) will change the show in […]

Maybe it’s the upcoming movie or maybe it’s just the cyclical nature of my fanhood, but I’ve had Star Trek on the brain for a while now. For whatever reason, the classic movie era is my favorite Star Trek time period. I’m a sucker for the adventures of Kirk and crew anytime between Star Trek: […]


Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead – REVIEW

My wife and I watched the Doctor Who special “Planet of the Dead” this past weekend.  Overall I thought it was an entertaining episode.  Unfortunately, the thought that kept going through my head the whole time is that we only have a few more David Tennant stories left.  While I welcome Matt Smith’s interpretation of […]
