The Top 5 Things That Annoy Me About The Walking Dead

I haven’t tried to hide the fact that I’ve been less than enthused with the past couple of seasons of Walking Dead. I’ve called it both “The Walking” and “The Boring Dead.” I hadn’t really put together why, so I thought I’d try to lay it out here. 1. Why haven’t we seen a horse […]

Kamen Rider Gaim

I figured the best way to kick off Gaim week was to give a little review of the show. What’s that? You’ve never seen it on your listings. Well, if you don’t live in Japan you will need to find an alternate method to find it. Which leads to the question, of how I found […]

Face Off – Do They Listen to the Judges?

I realized I hadn’t written anything about this season’s Face Off yet. I know it’s almost over. I know there are only 4 people left. I know there is one that seems capable of winning it more than the others. But, if you’re reading this, you must have some interest. I can tell you this, […]

The End of Fringe

Mrs. Nerd asked me the day after watching the last Fringe episode how I felt about it. We went on to talk about our various thoughts on the series and so forth. It was a quite enjoyable conversation. Thinking about it, the conversation contained none of the usual questions about series finales. We didn’t discuss […]

Face Off Season 3 Ups The Bar Again

Each season of Face Off has upped the bar in terms of complexity and skill level of the contestants. The third season has done this again. (You can look back at my thoughts on previous seasons here and here.) Normally, I can tell from the first episode about half the folks who aren’t going to […]

Face/Off Season 2: Advice for Reality Show Contestants

It’s no secret that Mrs. Nerd and I are reality TV junkies. Last year SyFy captured our interest with their newest reality entry, Face/Off. This spin on the typical “last person standing” show revolves around folks exhibiting their skills with special effects make up. Back for a second season, it’s obvious that SyFy has a monstrous […]

SyFy’s “Face Off” Makes Me Rethink My Career Choice

From a very early age I’ve had a fascination with movies and TV shows. Not only the shows themselves but the technical aspects of how they are made. And since I lean towards sci-fi and fantasy genres, these things typically include special effects and make up. Back in my day, there wasn’t an internet to […]

Is NBC’s “The Cape” just “Diet Spawn”?

There just seemed to be something familiar to me about “The Cape” that I couldn’t put my finger on. Then it hit me, the show was like the “lite” version of Spawn.

Bust Some Punks – “The Good Guys” Review

Every week their are two shows that cause some controversy in the Nerd household. The first is on Tuesday and is Glee. Mrs. Nerd loves the show. The plethora of Eighties songs has helped fuel this I suspect. It’s not that I hate the show, but I put up a protest mainly to keep my […]

Human Target – The Series

I wish I had written this a couple weeks ago. The season finale of  “Human Target” was on Fox already, and I just didn’t quite get my thoughts together in time. I will say that “Human Target” surprised me by being my favorite new show of the year. You will notice that this article is […]

Why The New “V” Doesn’t Work for This Nerd

I’ll be up front with you. I didn’t really watch the original mini series or full season runs of the original “V.” I can’t tell you why, it seems like something my young mind would have liked at the time. I remember watching a few of them, but never really following it. So I think, […]

Is It Time to Bury Bones?

I know, I’m going to stir some people up with this one. But after this weeks episode of “Bones” (A Night at the Bones Museum), I think it’s time to ask the question. Last week I wrote about how I though CSI had evolved and was able to change to stay fresh and interesting. But […]

The Winner of Hell’s Kitchen is…Huh?

So this week was the Season Finale of Hell’s Kitchen. The two hour finale featured the remaining three contestants facing off to see who would become the head chef of the Araxi restaurant in Whistler, British Columbia. The job is even more enticing when you consider that the 2010 Winter Olympics will have droves of […]

A Cheer for CSI and A Boo For Castle

Quite frequently the older a TV series gets, the more is starts to seem like old shows regurgitated. CSI has long been the leader of the forensic shows that now air on every network. The last couple of seasons were starting to seem a bit stale, even. When William Petersen decided to leave the CSI […]

Out of the Frying Pan and into Hell – Hell’s Ktichen Season 6

I wasn’t expecting to get a summer serving of Hell’s Kitchen, but Fox put it on the buffet of warm weather TV. We almost missed the season premier episode. We aren’t watching a lot of other Fox shows, and DVR the ones we do. I just happened to catch a commercial during a fast forward. […]

“Cake Boss” – Duff meets Tony Soprano

Over Fourth of July weekend, Mrs. Nerd and I were doing a little channel surfing and came across the TLC show Cake Boss. Now we both enjoy Ace of Cakes and the various Food Network challenges involving cake. We’d seen the Cake Boss star, Buddy Valastro, on at least one challenge, but couldn’t remember the […]

Warehouse 13 – A Steampunk Fringe?

SciFi Channel shows have been hit or miss for me. Some of them I really love, and some of them I just don’t get. I’ve never really got into the new Battlestar Galactica or Startgate. I was apparently one of the few people who liked Painkiller Jane and Dresden Files. I still think Dresden Files […]
