Marvel’s Iron Fist: The Good, The Bad, and The Meh

Marvel's Iron Fist - Colleen Wing

Welp. The critics are wrong. Kind of. Marvel’s Iron Fist isn’t the weakest Netflix Marvel series — in fact, I’d rank it higher than Luke Cage and maybe even Jessica Jones — but it’s still pretty… meh. Let’s break down what worked and what didn’t. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. THE GOOD

Revisiting Buffy: Welcome to the Hellmouth and The Harvest

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

It’s been 20 years since Welcome to the Hellmouth, the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, aired. I’ve been in love with this show for two decades now. I saw all episodes as they aired on TV. I binge-watched all 7 seasons after the series ended — twice. I’ve rewatched my favorite episodes countless times. I named this blog …

5 Things About ‘The Flash’ Trailer

The Flash

If you haven’t seen the full trailer of The CW’s The Flash, watch it now. WATCH IT! Isn’t it beautiful? I’ve been skeptical about this Arrow spin-off since I’m not sure honest-to-goodness costumed super-powered superheroes would work on TV. In movies, they’re spectacular. On TV, NOPE. But this trailer makes the show look amazing and I’m hoping it really is. I’m not …

6 Amber Heard GIFs From The Playboy Club Pilot

The Playboy Club - Pilot

Among all the new shows from the Fall TV season line up, The Playboy Club was the one I anticipated the most. I’ve been reading a lot of comparisons between this show and Showgirls and Mad Men, a movie and a TV show that are both very close to my heart. That’s why I expected a lot of cat fighting, sex and …

Short Spoilers for WWE Night of Champions 2011

WWE Night of Champions 2011 - Mark Henry

I still think that Money in the Bank is the best 2011 WWE PPV so far but WWE Night of Champions 2011 has its amusing moments. It was slightly disappointing mostly because some matches had unsatisfying endings while others just didn’t have impact. If you still haven’t seen it and you can’t wait for the replay, here be spoilers. Air Boom v. …

5 Things That Are As Fake As Pro Wrestling

It's still real to me, damnit!

I just saw WWE Summerslam 2011 and its ridiculous ending. I call it ridiculous and I want you all to know that it’s a compliment. I’ve been a fan of pro wrestling since I was a kid and I’ve always known that it was scripted. This is why when people say that it’s fake, I just go NO SHIT, SHERLOCK. …

26 Awkward X-Men the Animated Series Screencaps

Rogue and Storm

I’m re-watching all 5 seasons of X-Men the Animated Series because it’s my favorite Marvel animated series of all time. Aside from the nostalgia it brings with every corny line and generic cartoon voice, it beats the rest of the animated offerings throughout the years by sticking very closely to comics canon. From costume designs to character relationships, it’s the …

My 15 Favorite Moments in Conan’s First Week

Conan

Today, Conan O’Brien finishes his second week on his new TBS show “Conan”. That’s why it’s time to take a look at his first week. I know it doesn’t make sense, but hey, it’s the Internet. Anyhoo, so far, I like what I’m seeing.  Somehow, “Conan” feels like a marriage between The Tonight Show and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. …

High School of the Dead: Not Just T&A

BOOBS!

At first glance, High School of the Dead seems like animated softcore porn with zombies. It’s full of gratuitous shots of boobs and butts. But if you look past bouncing tits and spread crotches, you will see a George Romero zombie movie infused with anime elements. That’s right. I said it. If George Romero made an anime zombie movie, it would look …

My Top 20 Blackboard Quotes from The Simpsons

19 years ago today, the second episode of The Simpsons aired. Well, the episode was actually aired on January 14th in the US. I’m in the Philippines, so whatev. It was a special episode due to the fact that introduced one of my two favorite parts of the show: Bart writing punishment verses on a blackboard during the opening sequence …
