The Black Hole

It had me from the overture. (Really? An overture?? Oh, that's right, it's a musical.)

Stumbled on this amazing little fable. Don't be deceived by its indie cred, it's up there with the big boys.

Chuck: Season 1

Zachary Levi is probably the celebrity I'd like least to have dinner with, even though he's probably the most like me.

Star Trek: Season 2 (restored)

"The Doomsday Machine", "I, Mudd" and "Trouble with Tribbles"? The second season may end up being my favorite.

Friends: Season 9

It's been slowly dawning on me that Matt LeBlanc actually is the best actor of the bunch. And I don't think anyone on the show is a slouch.

Doctor Who (new): Season 1

Wow. That went from lukewarm to phenomenal in the space of 3 episodes. Game show from hell just came outta nowhere.

Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1983

...Unfortunately, the ending comes to a crashing halt with the reveal of a character who was obviously suspicious from the beginning. (Great visuals, though.)

Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1980

...But perhaps they were setting us up for this one, which is really all about corruption and happens to have the Yorkshire Ripper as a focal point...

Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1974

Some introduction to past events would have been helpful for us foreigners...

The Guild: Season 3

Nice to see Wil Wheaton, as wooden an actor as he is. And if you haven't watched "(Do You Wanna Date My) Avatar," where've you been?

The Young Victoria

A surprisingly rote telling of the fortunes of the young Queen, and yet also surprisingly engaging. (Keep your ears peeled, you'll need them.)

Event Horizon

That was... terrible. As only a bad sci-fi movie can be terrible: all plot, no point.

The Losers

Much better. What a comic book adaptation should be: knows it's a ridiculous conceit to begin with and covers up for it by being clever.
