Sleepy Hollow Recap 02.02 “The Kindred”

By Phoebe Duncan   For the record, I had several glasses of wine before viewing this episode, so I am feeling no pain right now. PREVIOUSLY ON SLEEPY HOLLOW: everyone introduces themselves, which is thoughtful of them, and by the by, Captain Irving still exists. At least in flashbacks.   I have to ask: is […]



Sleepy Hollow Recap 02.01 “This is War”

By Phoebe Duncan   So, you’ve decided to watch Sleepy Hollow! Let me explain — no, wait, there is too much. Let me sum up: Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), Revolutionary War soldier and spy, got his ass handed to him by the Horseman of Death (after beheading him) and woke up 250 years later because his […]

Who’s Who on Gotham

Whether you’re new to the Batman universe or a long-time fan, the premiere of FOX’s new series Gotham last night introduced a large number of new and familiar characters to keep track of.

The Maze Runner – GGNY Review

By Zachary Kirk-Singer Despite the criticism the genre gets, I like Young Adult fiction because it gives a nice format for an author to play in. Some really stick to the rules and give us something predictable, while others bend them or even get misclassified. The Maze Runner, in my opinion, falls under the latter. […]

It provides the vicarious adventure and puzzle-solving […]



As Above So Below – GGNY Review

By Zachary Kirk-Singer I must confess that I had not heard of As Above So Below but I was intrigued upon reading the concept – well, both intrigued and terrified. While I don’t mind the recent surge of the “found footage” subgenre in Horror, I am not a fan of caves. Still, I walked in […]

True Blood Recap 07.10 “Thank You”

By Greg Solomon “Thank you”…but no, thank you. Honestly, if I weren’t writing these recaps I could have died without watching the series finale and it wouldn’t have bothered me one bit. But here I am, to put the final nail in the coffin of seven years of my life. As I sit here, I recall […]

GGNY Review: The Giver

By Nick Robbins A good idea is a terrible thing to waste. The Giver, which opened this Friday, is blessed with a fantastic premise but suffers from poor execution and a lack of real commitment to either the source material or the variations the screenwriters have chosen to make. Based on Lois Lowry’s 1993 novel, […]

True Blood Recap 07.09 “Love is to Die”

By Greg Solomon At long last, the penultimate episode of this shitshow. Time to see if they can somehow manage to make this any worse (I’d say it’s impossible but I’m sure they’ll prove me wrong!) Will Bill live? Will Bill die? Will Sookie give birth to the baby of the LOST smoke monster? Will I […]
