Check out Gatchaman on Hulu

Growing up in the U.S. in the 70s, I was a big fan of Battle of the Planets, the American version of the Japanese anime, Gatchaman. Grossly re-edited and re-voiced, I was aware that Battle of the Planets was much different from Gatchaman, but having never seen the original, I didn’t have anything to compare it to. Gatchaman is now available for […]

American Horror Story Coven Season 3 Episode 4 Fearful Pranks Ensue


I’ve covered a lot of what I want to say about this espiode below. But this show makes Knots Landing look like child play. The ending was perfect! A pack of zombies coming out to play! And they aren’t just any zombies; no, these are Delphine’s family members risen from the grave to eat some […]

American Horror Story Coven Season 3 Episode 3 Replacements


  I do love this show and I always find things that interest me. This episode was a heavy Fiona episode focusing on how she got to be Supreme and the short time that she has back as Supreme. I don’t know where this will end as there a number of possibilities: Fiona winning it […]

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 4 Indifference

  I think the most important take away from all this is that Carol isn’t dead. Which means she might come back. As opposed to Andrea, who is dead dead. Carol at this point isn’t. But it is clear she is going through something and needs to get her shit together. And I agree with […]

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 3 Isolation

It might not be right outside the prison, it might be further up stream, but it’s there and its getting people sick. Which leads me to the following, why isn’t everyone getting sick? Is there […]

Right, I’m gonna continue to focus on my core group until it becomes obvious that they are on the way out and someone is on the way in. With one exception, Bob. I don’t trust Bob and I think he’s a rat-feeding bastard. That’s right, I’m calling him out as the traitor here and now. […] © 2021-2023 Fwoosh LLC Frontier Theme
