  •   I feel like a broken record, but once again ANOTHER brilliant episode! Sebastian Stan was the perfect Mad Hatter, wasn’t he? LOVED! So we begin where we left off last week, with Mary on the lam after escaping her cell. Henry is at the jail, waiting for Emma, who walks in with Gold. They discover Mary gone and Emma takes off in her bug to find her. While driving on the foggy road, Emma almost hits a fellow citizen of Storybrooke, who goes by the name Jefferson (and wasn’t that a wicked-awesome nod to Jefferson Airplane, who’s most famous song is ‘White Rabbit’!). It seems he’s twisted his ankle after diving into the ditch, and Emma offers him a […]

  •   WOW! What an episode! What a twist! Right? RIGHT?! I did NOT see that coming AT ALL! WOW! Okay, so lets start at the beginning, shall we? In Storybooke, Ruby and Granny get into a tiff and Ruby quits the diner. As she’s waiting for the bus that will take her out of town (it totally would have crashed!), Mary Margaret and Emma happen upon her. We all know how fond Mary is of taking in strays, so she offers Ruby a place to stay. Ruby accepts. Emma gives her a job working at the sheriffs office (Henry suggestion that Ruby might want a job taking things to people in baskets is priceless!), and all is right in Ruby’s […]

  • Tonight we got the story of Grumpy….and WHAT a story it was! Once again, Lee Arenberg hit it out of the park with his brilliant performance. In Fairytale Land, we meet Nova, played by the amazing Amy Acker. Does the woman not age?!     And how Fred-like was Nova? I literally JUST finished watching Angel for the first time two weeks ago, so seeing Amy in this type of character again was almost bittersweet. As Nova is flying over the land, a bit of fairy dust–which we find out is made from diamonds that are mined by dwarfs– accidentally falls onto a giant egg. That egg hatches early and who’s inside? Why, a dwarf, of course! Didn’t you know dwarfs are […]

  • It’s no secret that my favourite fairytale is Beauty and the Beast. I mean, I named my daughter ‘Belle’.  So THIS was the week I’ve been looking forward to since day one.  I’m so glad, it didn’t disappoint!   Written by the amazing Jane Espenson (Buffy, Torchwood, BSG), I knew this episode had to be a hit.   In Fairytale Land, we meet Belle, played wonderfully by Lost’s Emilie de Ravin.  Belle’s father’s kingdom is threatened by the Ogre wars, and Belle suggests they bring in Rumpelstiltskin to help.  Of course, when Rumpel helps, a price must be paid. This time his price is Belle…and thus Rump becomes our Beast in this tale.  Rumpel takes Belle to his castle and, of course, […]

  • On January 6, Nikita, the fourth entry in a long-running media franchise, returns to television in the United States on The CW. If you’ve never heard of Nikita, you’re not alone. The origin of this show is rather implausible for what is now a cult classic franchise in American television. Nikita’s beginnings start in 1990 in France, in , about a teenage junkie who participates in the robbery of a pharmacy owned by a friend’s parents. The robbery devolves into a gunfight with local police, during which her cohorts are killed. Suffering severe withdrawal symptoms, she murders a policeman. Nikita is arrested, tried, and convicted of murder and is sentenced to life in prison, where her death is faked, and […]

  • This high powered little projector has blown my mind!  It’s tiny, portable, and has all the power of its bloated predecessors. We used it to host an impromptu gaming party at our house.  Pinning a white sheet up on the wall and projecting an Xbox 360 via the GP2 we were able to run two video games at once in my living room.  While a few people played 007 Goldeneye Reloaded on the projector, the other group played Halo Reach on the TV. We were quite impressed with the crisp and clear image from the projector, especially since we were using a sheet as a projector screen!  The GP2 projects in full 720p HD. I didn’t expect the tiny unit […]

  •   My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 2: Episode 2 Originally aired Saturday 9/24/2011 WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!   “Sarcasm: the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded.” – Dostoevsky Seriously, a lot of sarcasm in this episode, I suppose it IS a defense mechanism. Of course I loved it, Pinkie getting one last gulp of chocolate rain, the shameless and beautiful Star Wars ending. ANYWAY! So I can’t help but think I set myself up for disappointment this week. I was part of the big over-analysis group that wanted DisQord to come back as a recurring character with diminished powers. Thinking about it, that makes less sense than […]

  • Twilight Sparkle eez best pony!     I’m sure you’re thinking by now that this guy is off his rocker, insane in the membrane! But let me be perfectly clear, Equestria is real and the ponies that live there are my very best friends!   No, I’m not that far off the deep end…yet. But I will take you back to January when it started for me. Like any good internet dweller and general geek, I would peruse its reams of effective intellectual discourse. Short story even shorter, ponies were the flavor of the month. That’s when something amazing happened! And now I can talk to animals.   Well, not really. The animals talk to me at least, but just […]
