Bruce Campbell Has Officially Retired As Ash Williams

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

In wake of the cancellation of the excellent ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ series on Starz (the first two seasons are on Netflix if you haven’t seen it already), Bruce Campbell announced his retirement in portraying Ash. To what degree isn’t specified, but he certainty means any live action portrayals, and potentially any voice work as well.

Noting like this is ever definite, after all, how many times has Mark Hamill said he’s retired from voicing The Joker? Still, being known largely for portraying a single character for over 30 years has got to wear on a person. Besides, we got 3 seasons of a great tv show with the character before the end.

It’s best to enjoy the time we had, rather than lament what will never be.

Blast From The Past – Internet Movie Firearms Database

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

I’m sure you know about the Internet Movie Database, or imdb.com, another one of those internet time sinks that has information on almost every movie ever along with almost every actor ever, the parts they’ve played, etc. Since this is the internet, where just about any damn thing can be found, and copycats are common, somebody made a similar site in the form of a Wiki, but with firearms as the primary focus instead of movies and actors, even calling it the internet movie firearms database. On the site, you can look up what movies, television shows, and video games a firearm has been in, what firearms a movie, television show, or video game has featured, and even what firearms and in what show/movie/video game an actor has used.

It’s pretty exhaustive, which makes games of 6-degrees-of-a-Beretta-92F all the easier to play.

UMAREX USA LAUNCHES NEW SHOW ALL ABOUT AIR GUN HUNTING

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

Fort Smith, Arkansas (April 5th, 2018) – Umarex USA, Inc. has launched a new “TV” show—Real Air Gun Hunting, Umarex USA’s foray into digital programming dedicated solely to using air guns as a hunter’s tool.

Real Air Gun Hunting launched April 5th, 2018 on CarbonTV, an app that streams the show on demand.

You can also follow Real Air Gun Hunting on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.

Outdoor media personality and host of the show, Steve Criner said, “Our mission with Real Air Gun Hunting is to have the most exciting, the most real, and the most duplicatable air gun hunting show ever created. We want to share the excitement and enjoyment of air gun hunting. We want everyone to enjoy airguns, because we believe if you don’t include airguns in your life you are missing out.” He went on to say that hunting with an air gun offers opportunities to get out and enjoy the outdoors in some places that are off limits to hunting with a firearm. Additionally, hunting and shooting with an air gun is the most economical way to shoot that there is. “You’ll always have pellets and you always have air. You don’t have to worry about ammo shortages.” he said.

Those interested in Real Air Gun Hunting can expect to be taken along on hunts for rabbit, squirrel, raccoon, deer, predators, wild boar and other game. Justin Biddle, Director of Marketing at Umarex USA said, “With more and more content being consumed digitally we wanted to add a show to our strategy that was dedicated to the digital arena. And we wanted it to contain both entertaining and informative content that a hunter could relate to. Real Air Gun Hunting is about giving responsible hunters tips and product information that will help make them successful with air guns.”

Outdoors men and women can expect to see Steve, the Dog Soldier, along with other guests, face the normal challenges of the hunt in conjunction with a wide variety of air guns such as the Umarex Gauntlet, Walther Air Rifles and the .50 caliber Umarex Hammer. Viewers will see first-hand how effective air guns are for humane harvesting of many game species commonly found in the wild.

Marvel’s The Punisher – Netflix Trailer 1

Saturday, September 23rd, 2017

I kinda fell off keeping up with the Netflix arm of the Marvel Cinematic Universe; I haven’t seen Jessica Jones or The Defenders, and I dropped out of Iron Fist 3 episodes in. However, I definitely won’t be missing The Punisher series when it launches, sometime later this year. He was easily the highlight of Daredevil season 2, and

The Punisher season 1 debuts sometime this year.

Danger 5 Auction

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Danger 5 is a parody of the spy genre which stars an international team of special operatives who’s primary goal is to kill Hitler, and disrupt Nazi efforts in the process. The first season was a 60’s take on WWII. The second season is more Cold War-inspired, although, as always, the team’s main goal is to kill Hitler.

Around the middle of this month, the official Danger 5 eBay page will be holding an auction for props from the show.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ And ‘The Orville’

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

So, within a short time, we have both a Star Trek parody series, and an official return of Star Trek to television. I’m honestly more jazzed for The Orville, not so much because Seth MacFarlane is involved, but because it’s as close to a Galaxy Quest tv series we’re likely to see.

Marvel’s The Defenders Official Trailer

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

While I’ve seen all of ‘Daredevil’ and ‘Luke Cage’, I didn’t watch any of ‘Jessica Jones’, and I only made it through episode 4 of ‘Iron Fist’. Still, even with only having seen a little over half of the Netflix Marvel series, it’s not hard to get at least a bit excited about the upcoming ‘The Defenders’ teamup series. As a bonus, it has the same showrunner as ‘Daredevil’ Season 2, Marco Ramirez, so there’s a better chance it’s more on the ‘Daredevil’ side of quality, and less on the ‘Iron Fist’ side.

All episodes of ‘The Defenders’ will be available on Netflix starting August 18th, 2017.
