read my dirty opinions about toys, comics, movies, tv, video games and anything else that is suffocating our brains today! You know, the stuff that matters!

I haven't felt this way since maybe the first issue of Crisis on Infinite Earth's #1 20 years ago...INFINITE CRISIS #1 by Geoff Johns and Phil Jimenez was the only comic I bought this week and I couldn't wait to get home to read it. Straight home after the comic shop and plopped down on the sofa and read it super slowly to make sure I took in all the artwork and the double-page spreads.

I obviously won't spoil anything here because since Wednesday I have been dodging any mention of anything to do with this comic online. Obviously I am a huge DC nerd because to me the best comic series of all time was CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS and I have that hardcover that came out a few years back and I will treasure that as my history book to the DC UNIVERSE.

A big thank you to the current DC COMIC management for putting this Infinite Crisis together - whether it turns out good or bad or does or doesn't compare to COIF it doesn't matter - its the DC event we've been waiting for since the Death of Superman.

Don't you love how comics can make you regress into a kid again! Thanks DC!


I just love it when I miss something and then am able to catch up in one whirlwind of being glued in from of whatever it is. I did see the first part of the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA mini-series and it was so bad and so boring that I never bothered to see the series.

Then my buddy lends me his box set of SEASON 1 and I skip the mini-series and dive right into the 13 episodes of the series and love it. It's jumping up quickly to be the best sci-fi show. I don't know if I count FIREFLY as sci-fi really, and while I still think FIREFLY's cast and stories were great, with BSG having wrapped part 1 of their second season its going to be tough for Firefly to keep that title because BSG is just great television and great sci-fi.

I cannot recommend this show highly enough. Everything I thought I'd hate about it is perfect. How can anyone replace Lorne Greene and Dirk Benedict - well Edward James Olmos and Katee Sackhoff have more than amazingly pulled it off.

And I just love the classic viper - IMHO the best space ship design ever.


No new blog entries in almost a month means we have been sucked in by the TV season. I can't remember ever watching this much TV except when I was 8 and living for Saturday Morning and After school cartoons.

I'm going to post these shows I like and see if I still like them the next time I see this entry.

NIGHT STALKER: Never really saw the original KOLCHAK - but this one if pretty creepy, and now comparing it to SUPERNATURAL whoch is also a bit creepy, Stuart Townsend is more creepy than the Supernatural Brothers - and Kolchak gets a Jimmy Olsen and a black Lois Lane to boot.

E-RING: USually I don't like military shows, I don't watch JAG or things like that, but these stories with Benjamin Bratt and Dennis "Spitting Mad" Hopper are neat little Bruckheimer-type adventures. I've been entertained at least so far and will continue watching.

PRISON BREAK: Still good and still keeping up the story. I have a morbid facination with this show waiting to see it fall apart - if it doesn't I will be very happy.

MY NAME IS EARL and HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER: Two sappy comedies but the only short form sit-com content that is passable this season, seems everyone went for 1-hour drama's.

I've already dropped THRESHOLD and SURFACE and will skip through SUPERNATURAL.

And then there are the usual suspects: ALIAS, SMALLVILLE, CSI, THE SIMPSONS, BOSTON LEGAL, MEDIUM and LOST - no Desperate Housewives here.

I point you to a great TV Show blog here!
