I’m wrapping up my “British Invasion” segment (because, sadly, this is the only other BBC show I’ve seen) with Being Human. Now, fellow Americans, let me clarify: this is not the show of the same title you may have seen on the Syfy channel. I’m talking about the original show, which first aired in the U.K. in 2008. From what I understand, the American version Continue reading
Since this is my first horror film review, I’m going to take a minute to vent by saying that I hate a solid 50 to 75 percent of recent horror films out there. Horror has become synonymous with gore, and I absolutely cannot stand an abundance of grossness. Why would I want to pay for a movie that I can’t even watch because it’s so disgusting?

I am talking, of course, about Doctor Who. While this show has always been steadily popular across the pond, it’s taken a while for the U.S. to catch on. In fact Continue reading
While there’s a lull in my movie-going schedule, I thought I’d take some time to address the other half of my little blogging endeavor: TV reviews! I’m going to try to stick to a series of themes for my TV reviews. Why themes? Because themes are fun! I’d like to start with a “British Invasion” theme because lately, I just can’t get enough of the BBC. Continue reading
