Nightfire is a reclusive dragon who lives in a cave with internet access.
As weird as ever.
Twin Peaks is back for a third season, a whopping twenty-five years after the conclusion of Season 2. David Lynch and Mark Frost are again at the helm, most of the original cast are back to reprise their roles, and the ensemble is bolstered by the talent of Hollywood heavy hitters such as Naomi Watts, Michael Cera, and Amanda Seyfried. It has benefited from a long development cycle, having been in production for at least three years. It also boasts eighteen hour-long episodes (full hours, without commercials). This, my friends, is as authentically Twin Peaks as it gets. It broke records for signups to Showtime’s streaming service, for good reason.
This Titan has finally fallen.
A while back, I posted a review of Titanfall. It was a positive review. I had arrived on the scene a little late, after the initial hype had worn off and the metagame was already well-established, but I found that it still held up pretty well a few years after the fact.
With a third season just around the corner, now seems as good a time as any to revisit this cult classic.
When you think of Twin Peaks, the first image that comes to mind is probably that of a backwards-talking dwarf dancing in a red-curtained room. That is certainly one of its most famous scenes, but there is more to this show than simply the bizarre dream sequences and cryptic imagery that director David Lynch is famous for.
Despite Nexon's sticky influence, Ghost in the Shell is turning out to be a highly polished piece of work.
As of this writing, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - First Assault Online has reached open beta and is now free to play. It also continues to be consistently patched with new content and bug fixes. In the last two patches alone, they have added eight new weapons, two new maps, a new game mode, a new operative, new cosmetic options, and the ability to customize your Tachikoma tank with meaningful upgrades.
Lackluster performances and budgetary restrictions mar this otherwise workable science fiction story.
Killjoys is a Canadian-produced science fiction series that airs concurrently on Canada's Space channel alongside the Syfy network. Its first season aired in 2015, and the second season is right around the corner, so I figured now would be a good time to review this series for anyone who might be interested in jumping on board.
How much bad shit can happen to one person? A whole season's worth, apparently.
The Man In The High Castle is the Amazon-films adaptation of the award-winning novel by Philip K. Dick of the same name. The book in question happens to be one of my favorite books of all time, and I couldn't believe when I heard that it had not only been adapted, but adapted to television, with a mega-budget and high production values. It was also produced by freaking Ridley Scott, of all people! I was over the moon. You see, as a fan of Philip K. Dick's work, I have been dismayed by the string of shitty adaptations that his work has suffered over the years. Aside from Blade Runner (which was also a Ridley Scott production), Philip K. Dick's work has been insulted over and over again by terrible treatments including, but not limited to, the
