Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Crouch Family Tragedy

Reading the Harry Potter series of books to my children at bedtime has been an immense joy for me. My son was a tiny infant when Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was released. Just like Harry arrived on the doorstep of the Dursleys, my copy arrived on my doorstep on an early, misty […]

Gerard Butler movies fall into one of two categories: critical successes or box office hits. Rarely, in his career, has Gerard Butler starred in a movie that scored with critics and audiences alike. The most successful Gerard Butler movies have been action movies, romantic comedies, or animated films. I’ve heard, or read, more than one critic […]

Robot Love

Love Your Robot Day Gaining Popularity

Have you heard of Love Your Robot Day? No, neither had I, until I received a press release announcing that February 7 is Love Your Robot Day. At first I though, but I don’t have a robot. Then I though, what about my Roomba? It’s kind of a robot. What about our remote-controlled helicopters and […]

Why We Need Superheroes We Can Identify With

I have always been drawn to superheroes, especially ones who have super strength of some kind or excellent fighting abilities. I’m sure there’s some kind of psychological label that could be applied to my interest in superheroes, but I don’t care; I just like them. But something happens, however, when I watch a female superhero […]

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD 4,722 Hours

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “4,722 Hours”: Who Was That?

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “4,722 Hours” prompted me to write the geekiest article I’ve ever written. Sure, sure. I know. I write about geeky things, from Daredevil reviews, to my thoughts on the latest Batman comics. Sometimes I even talk about why Elvis was the greatest living being in the history of civilization. So this isn’t […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince / CR: Scholastic

Harry Potter, Dumbledore and the Resurrection Stone

The Deathly Hallows fascinated Dumbledore. The Resurrection Stone, the Elder Wand, and the Cloak of Invisibility. He was lucky enough to use all three in his long life. Let’s take a look, however, at just the Resurrection Stone. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince isn’t my favorite book in the Harry Potter series for a […]

Stephen Amell: 5 Things You Don’t Know About the Star of Arrow

Stephen Amell became instantly famous when the first poster for Arrow was released by the CW. There he was, brooding and shirtless. You couldn’t pick up an issue of Entertainment Weekly for weeks without seeing his abs somewhere on their pages. Then Arrow premiered in fall of 2012 and Stephen Amell earned cred for more than just […]

Battlestar Galactica

Top 5 Turning Points in ‘Battlestar Galactica’

It’s hard to believe it’s been 6 years since the series finale of the re-imagined Battlestar Galatica faded to black, but I have been thinking about that series lately and how it was just the right show for its time.  The mini-series aired in December 2003 and season 1 began in the fall of 2004.  We […]

Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are Having a Moment

Really, Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are having more than a moment. Let me catch you up. First, Dominic Purcell starred in a short-lived (but terribly interesting) drama on FOX called John Doe. Purcell played the titular character, who washed up somewhere with a bad case of amnesia about his identity, but who could solve crimes […]

Jamie and Claire in 'The Wedding' on Outlander / Starz

Share an ‘Outlander’ Wedding Quote

I can say, with a fair amount of certainty, that “The Wedding” is the most-watched episode of Outlander. “The Wedding” is a favorite of many Outlander fans, not only for its steamy scenes, but also because it’s the first step Jamie and Claire take on a long journey together. My favorite quote from that episode is “It […]


‘Game of Thrones’ Check-in and Predictions

Sometimes I wonder if my wife– the beautiful Kelly– knows how much I love Game of Thrones, how much I think about it, trying to predict what will happen, lamenting the lost characters, accidentally quoting Syrio Forel.

I’m Loving the Songs on Amazon Prime Playlists

I’ve been an Amazon Prime member for years. But Amazon Prime playlists are next level! Let me back up just a smidge. Years and years ago, when Amazon was a quirky website that sold books almost exclusively (remember those days?) I decided to go Prime. I already did a lot of my shopping on Amazon. […]

Twin Peaks / Showtime
