True blood season 6 episode 5, recap and review

True Blood Season 6 Episode 5, Recap and Review

It is entirely possible that the creators of True Blood have finally remembered what made the show so good the first three seasons. Plenty of Lafayette, plenty of Jason doing what Jason does best and actual filling in of back-story. This episode was easily the best episode of the entire season and best of all,…

Under the dome episode 3: manhunt

Under the Dome Episode 3: Manhunt

I don’t think it’s a particularly good sign that the third episode of the series was easily the worst episode of the series. At this point, the writers for the show should be getting a pretty good feel for the characters and starting to write them with a little more depth. Instead this episode seemed…

True blood season 6, episode 4: at last

True Blood Season 6, Episode 4: At Last

Things are heating up as the season rolls. Just like last week, when I thought the show was finally hitting its stride, this week’s episode was even better than the last. Unfortunately, the show is still a far cry from what it used to be, but at least this episode was interesting and didn’t have…

Under the Dome: The Fire

I noticed that the last couple of reviews I have done for Geek Insider have come across as rather negative. Realizing this, I went into last night’s episode of Under the Dome trying my best to be positive and really enjoy the episode. That approach worked for about half of “The Fire,” until I ran…

True Blood Season 6 Episode 3: You’re No Good

After two pretty mediocre episodes to start the year, I have to admit that this season is the best of season so far. Having said that, there is still plenty I wished was just a little bit better and plenty I wish hadn’t been in the episode at all. True Blood Moves in a Different…

Under the dome, episode 1: pilot

Under the Dome, Episode 1: Pilot

It’s always interesting watching a television show or a movie that is based on the book. I read Under the Dome a few years ago and when I first read the back cover, looking for the synopsis the first thing that popped into my mind was “Didn’t the Simpsons already do this?” Of course, Stephen…

True blood season 6 episode 2: the sun

True Blood Season 6 Episode 2: The Sun

After last week’s episode, I went into last night wondering just how much crazy action we were going to see. The season opened up with several loud bangs and it seemed as if the the show’s creators understood they needed a bit of a slowdown. Had this been the kind of slowdown that filled out…

The War Z Rebranded As ‘Infestation: Survivor Stories’

There are few games out there that have seen as many odd news stories and controversies as the game formerly known as The War Z. While most of the bad press surrounding the game has to do with what is actually in the game and how the developers handled that press, there has also been…

True Blood Season 6 Episode 1 Review: Who Are You Really?

It used to be that the return of True Blood was an exciting time of year. I wanted to get excited for last night’s season premiere, “Who are you, really?” I sat down in front of the television with a beer and a bucket of popcorn and got ready to welcome the return of people…

Comic review: the walking dead issue #111

Comic Review: The Walking Dead Issue #111

I’ve always felt that the best comic book series are the ones that I could imagine watching unfold during a really good television series. The odd thing about The Walking Dead is that it actually has been made into a television series. That series is pretty good, but at this point isn’t much like the…
