Yea, Superbowl, go Patriots, etc. What was really worth the watch was the trailers for upcoming flicks like ‘Logan’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2’, and the new ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film staring Javier Bardem as an undead pirate. Among those was a teaser for the second season of ‘Stranger Things’, appropriately called ‘Stranger Things 2’, AKA that series that’s a love letter to Spielberg 80’s movies with a sweet synth soundtrack.

Look forward to Stranger Things 2 coming out this Halloween.

It’s like if Star Trek: The Animated Series was given the Sealab 2020 treatment. Also, it can be pretty NSFW, so watch at your own discretion.

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

If you happen to like Tim and Eric-esque off-beat, frankly weird humor, then you might want to check out the upcoming Adult Swim show Decker: Unclassified. It stars Tim Heidecker as Jack Decker, and is pretty much Tim and Eric meets 24.

Decker: Unclassified premiers June 17th.

Preacher – First 4 Minutes

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

Preacher, the series based on Garth Ennis’ comic series of the same name, premiers tonight on AMC. Given the content of the comic series, you’d think it would be a better fit on, say, HBO, or the like. Then again, Breaking Bad was good, so maybe there’s hope.

The official Ash vs Evil Dead Facebook page has uploaded the first episode of the new series as a special preview.

Venture Bros. Season 6 Trailer

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

With Venture Bros. Season 6 slated for an early February 2016 release, a trailer for the upcoming season has surfaced on the interwebs. The Venture family is moving to New York to take over Jonas Venture Jr.’s company after his untimely death, and it also looks like there’s going to be a lot more parodies of Marvel properties, especially considering the greater focus on Spider-Man expy Brown Widow, and the seemingly crossdressing Captain America expy as well.

In any case, I can’t wait!

Yup, they’re rebooting MacGyver, or at least attempting to, with a pilot having been ordered by CBS. My hope in this matter is it’ll be Space MacGyver:

SDCC 2015 – Vikings Bludgeon Booth

Saturday, July 11th, 2015


To promote their show ‘Vikings’ at San Diego Comic-Con, History channel has set up a “Bludgeon Booth” at the convention.

In the Bludgeon Booth, attendees get dressed up in Viking garb, choose their weapon, and, with all the strength and battle rage they can muster, slam the weapon down on a platform, upon which an attendant sprays them with red, sugary blood. This entire event is recorded in slow motion, mixed with footage from the show, and emailed to the attendee to do with as they wish. The above video is my own run through the booth; it was a lot of fun!


What do attendees get for participating in the Bludgeoning Box, aside from the satisfaction of being coated in fake blood? A Vikings comic book, and a Vikings-branded drinking horn, which also allows the owner discounts on beer at select bars in the gaslamp district.


Easily one of the best booths at this year’s SDCC.
