Empire Strikes Back Dack figure with retro packaging

Dack from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has taken on near-mythical status with geeks.  When we first meet Dack he demonstrates his boundless enthusiasm with the line: “Right now I feel like I could take on the whole Empire myself!” As someone that’s watched the film a few times, this line is quite sad […]

REVIEW: Stargate Universe Season 1.5 DVD

I compared it to previous Stargate series, Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek: Voyager.  Within a couple weeks all that was forgotten and it was rapidly becoming one of my favorite shows on TV. If you’ve never seen the show, the […]
