I cannot recommend Lost Untangled highly enough. This shit is off the hook. Each sixth season Lost episode is recapped by a muppet (for no discernable reason). The kind of muppet who has spent the last year huffing glue, locked in his apartment/shrine to Lost, watching nothing but the show and assembling the most hilarious 3 minute-ish recaps.
I breakdown exactly how Lost was able to pull off the brilliance that was seasons five. Flashbacks and flashforwards and time jumping and all the other crazy items in the Lost bag of tricks have combined to make something amazing, a time travel story that should be confusing, but isn't. Bravo Lost.
Blog South Dakota Dark ranked and discussed the top 100 telelvision series. And boy, that discussion is worth reading. Here's your entry point into that critical analysis, as well as links to many of the supplemental lists that accompanied it. Interesting shit.
The introduction to my Battlestar Galactica Commentaries, including a full index of all 20 episodes of fangasmy gloriousness that changed the face of Feelings of White forever. This is a really amazing show and it was a pleasure to bring my insights, analysis and wise-cracking comments to you.
One final last goodbye hurrah for the show that keeps on giving. Clips from three different interviews and and what a few other FoW commenters had to say. Jammer's Reviews and RDM's podcasts are also placed in a favorable light in this link-stravaganza farewell
The Galactica Finale arrives in astounding style and I say my goodbyes, crack a few jokes, crack a few beers and pontificate for one last final time about this great and grand show I've loved for so long.
Time jumping lost style storytelling comes to the BSG universe and Sawyer is there to wish them a friendly hello. I go on at great length about Moore's behind the scenes visions, including his reactions to Voyager. Also, I'm pretty sure I discuss the episode, but I honestly may have missed that.
Battlestar Anderstica (Anders + Galactica) goes transformer-style and demands the allspark, Optimus Prime and Furburger also appear. This is just a lovely lovely episode wherein we get a last chance to spend some time with our Galactica crew. My hats off to this wonderful crew.
A ringing endorsement of Watchmen, the seminal comic by Alan Moore. Included is over five pages of excerpts from the graphic novel as well as some custom created fake-ads for Dr. Manhattan's discrete male escort agency. This is really a great comic and completely worth reading.
Boomer is a very naughty girl and returns to cause much trouble for our friends in the fleet and I go psycho with the CSS fonts. Meanwhile Starbuck gets another head character and they play a lovely duet on the piano and, um, I'm serious about the CSS, this has more random styles than the wu-tang clan.
How to describe this epic masterpiece? I've spent the last month compiling a hillarious collage of President Obama and Admiral Adama comparisons. Over eighteen seperate mini-joke/comic/things all rolled into one sprawling bizarre competition that ends with the two degenerating into insults. And it'll take you less than a minute to read. *worth it*
Saucy dangerous unpredictable Ellen Tigh has returned to the fleet only to discover - dum dum dum! - Tigh has knocked up a Six and Ellen's none to pleased. Baltar struggles for control of his culthood and the Allspark is causually mentioned.
Anders' expostion button goes off and the entire history of the humans and cylons is downloaded to us viewers in an amazing tour de force. Join me as I recap the events from 3000 years ago until now, including quoting John/Cavil's brilliant I'm a machine speach.
Furburger, a gian metal vagina, makes her appearance as does Stumpy, Felix's crusty companion. The revolution is resolved and on the whole I quite liked it. The unlikely return of Lt. Aaron Kelly is most welcome, as is Baltar, and George W. Bush makes an appearance.
