Review: Guardians of the Galaxy The Telltale Series

    • GAME: Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series
    • CONSOLE: PS4
    • RATING: ★★★★☆

It only took me a couple of days to finish this game but I loved the time I got to spend with Telltale’s version of Marvel’s Guardians. First off, I’m a big Marvel fan, especially of the cinematic universe and I loved the GOTG films so I was eager to check out a new story in the form of an interactive, episodic, and choice-based video game.

Review: Single Parents – Pilot

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Single Parents has been on my horizon ever since I discovered Elizabeth Meriwether would be at the helm. I was a big fan of New Girl and I’ve missed it since it wrapped its seven season run this past May, but based on this pilot, I’d say Single Parents is the perfect remedy. Not to mention the fact the show was co-created by J.J. Philbin who worked on another favorite of mine, The OC.

Review: New Amsterdam – Pilot

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

New Amsterdam has the arduous task of debuting into an oversaturated genre. It is yet another medical drama competing with Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Doctor, The Resident, and Chicago Med. In addition to treading over the graveyard of a plethora of other medical dramas that didn’t make it past one season in the recent years due to said genre bloat. So what does New Amsterdam have going for it to set it apart from its competition and predecessors?

Book Review: YOU & BONUS: TV Review

  • Author: Caroline Kepnes23492630
  • Edition: Paperback
  • Published: June 15th, 2016
  • Genres: Fiction, Thriller, Mystery, Suspense
  • Star Rating: ★★★☆☆
  • Goodreads

Wow, this book was… a lot to process to say the least. YOU is about a bookstore manager named Joe who falls desperately, madly, and scarily in love with Guinevere Beck. A young Brown student who finds herself in his crosshairs after passing through his shop. What makes YOU unique is that the entirety of the story is told through Joe’s point-of-view. His very scary, violent, and downright filthy POV.

** Spoilers ahead. **

If this book were written by a man I doubt I would have even picked it up to begin with. As it stands, I already felt disgusting and dirty reading parts of it. Kepnes is excellent at creating a sense of foreboding, a sense of utter disgust with what her centric character is doing. Seriously, once I finished this book I felt like I needed to jump in the shower immediately. (Partly because Kepnes made me read the phrase “pussy juice” about ten times). I have to give her credit for not writing Joe in a sympathetic light. I never felt as if she wanted asking her readers to like Joe, just to understand his motives and his delusions.

Advance Preview: Happy Together

It’s that time of year again folks! Fall TV. All the networks are flexing their latest new series, and we’re in that great, sometimes awkward, period of trying on pilots to see which ones fit.

CBS has a bundle of new sitcoms launching this fall. I’ve sampled all of them and Happy Together is one of the stronger contenders in the bunch. It’s not a wholly original premise, we’ve seen this type of found family, set-up before (and I’ll admit that is one of my favorite television tropes so maybe I’m biased), but I find that it induces a nostalgic factor that makes this show something akin to comfort food. I felt warm and fuzzy watching and I genuinely enjoyed myself. It doesn’t hurt that I’ve nursed a soft spot for Amber Stevens West since her Greek days either.
