We can't think of a better way to start a new year than with a Doctor Who adventure. Last time we saw #13, Yaz, and Dan, they had just saved some portion of the universe from the Flux. The Doctor apparently decided she didn't need to know more about her erased lives for the time being, and there was a hint of an overdue conversation between her and Yaz. It was a chaotic ending to a crazy Series 13, and now we kick off Jodie Whittaker's final run as our favorite Time Lord. How does 2022 begin for this crew?... Read more →

Just like that, we've already reached the Doctor Who Series 13 finale. Chris Chibnall brought fans on a crazy ride this year that's seen the show finally dig deeper into the "Timeless Child" story (while providing a huge loophole to rewrite it again in the future.) We've had plenty of timey-wimey experiences, and a mix of old and new faces. There are still many outstanding questions as we head into Episode 6. Can they all be properly resolved? Let's discuss... (Warning: Spoilers ahead.) Plot Summary: The Doctor is stuck in Division HQ outside the universe. However, Yaz, Dan, Professor Jericho,... Read more →

We're heading into the final stretch of Series 13, friends. Doctor Who: Flux has been a wild, and at times, chaotic, ride. Do we trust Chris Chibnall to bring it in for a satisfying landing in the last two episodes? Wild card: What if the story actually continues through next year's three specials that we know end with a regeneration? Well, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. Are you ready to discuss this week's adventure? Here we go... (Warning: Spoilers ahead.) Plot Summary: The Doctor, who was turned into a Weeping Angel at the end of the last... Read more →

Welcome back! Has everyone had enough time to settle down after last week's chaotic episode? We're starting the second half of Series 13 this week. There are plenty of unanswered (and intriguing) questions to be resolved with just three episodes left. Can showrunner Chris Chibnall match the energy of the first half and give us a satisfying conclusion to this adventure? When last we left the Doctor, Yaz, and Dan, they were dealing with the small fact that a Weeping Angel hijacked the TARDIS. Just another day in the Time Vortex, right? Where do we go from here? Let's jump... Read more →

Just like that, we're already at the midpoint of Series 13! Showrunner Chris Chibnall has already thrown a lot at viewers through the first two episodes, as we finally begin to learn more about the Doctor's erased past lives. When last we left #13, she was about to try to save Yaz and Vinder from being destroyed by time. What came next was one of the most chaotic episodes of Doctor Who that we've ever seen, and it brought even more questions. Let's discuss. (Warning: Many spoilers ahead!) Plot Summary: Let's see if we can keep this straight: The Doctor... Read more →

Welcome back, everyone! Don't know about you, but we spent a good part of last week thinking about how much we enjoyed the first episode of Doctor Who: Flux. The storyline was immediately engaging, and it also featured the best pacing and character development of the Chris Chibnall era. The production values were terrific, and we were left pondering all of the dangling plot threads. Now the question becomes, can this week's episode, "War of the Sontarans" continue the momentum? Let's discuss... (Warning: Many spoilers ahead!) Plot Summary: The Doctor, Yaz, and Dan survived last week's pending disaster and now... Read more →

It's been 10 months since we last saw the Doctor in action. She said goodbye to Graham and Ryan, and then she and Yaz took off to explore the universe. Now it's time to begin her last full run before next year's specials and the arrival of the 14th Doctor in 2023. Showrunner Chris Chibnall promised Jodie Whittaker would have an "epic" final adventure that would play out over six episodes. The first two series of the showrunner's era have been frustrating to say the least. Is the third time the charm? Let's discuss... (Warning: Many spoilers ahead!) Plot Summary:... Read more →

It's a little startling to realize that Friends went off the air 17 years ago. It was must-see TV for millions of people in their 20's and 30's from 1994 to 2004. The show has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years, thanks to nostalgia from original fans, as well as the introduction of a new generation of young adults who also relate to these six characters trying to establish themselves in the world. No doubt, many people distracted themselves during the pandemic by watching reruns, and now fans have a chance to see all six actors reunite in a long-awaited... Read more →

There are of course many reasons to dislike the year 2020. The coronavirus pandemic claimed millions of lives and forever altered millions more. We also lost many notable public figures. One of those that personally stings is the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who died from colon cancer at the young age of 43. Boseman's passing was a shock, because no one even seemed to know that he was sick in the first place. To give the performances that he did while fighting that deadly disease makes his career all the more inspiring. The man was spellbinding in every role he... Read more →

Singer Britney Spears has captured the public's attention for close to 30 years. First she joined the cast of The Mickey Mouse Club in 1993 (a group which also included Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling.) Fast-forward six years to when she released her debut album, ...Baby One More Time and became global teen idol. She was in rarefied air when things began falling apart. Everyone wanted a piece of Spears for their own financial gain, and no one seemed to be looking out for her best interests. She was eventually placed into a court-ordered conservatorship in 2008, with... Read more →
