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 […]

Engineernerd’s Review of Shutter Island

Mrs. Nerd  and I did a surprising thing last week. We actually went to the theater to see a movie. It’s not that we don’t like going to the theater. It just seems like we always have a full DVR and a stack of DVD’s at home to watch. And watching a movie at home […]

Engineernerd’s Top 10 Creepy Movies

I love scary movies. I’m not that much for over the top gore just to be gross. But I do love a movie that is a just plain good scare. Maybe it’s because my birthday and Halloween share the same month. 1. Phantom of the Opera (Lon Chaney). I know it’s a silent film. But […]

Riese The Series – Episode 1

I found out about “Riese” awhile back on Twitter. The allure of a Steampunk series was a huge draw to me . You may have noticed the banners on the site for the series over the past month or so. Let’s just say my interest was piqued. The first episode of this web series has […]

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, […]

“The Abominable Dr. Phibes” Film Review

I was really excited to this film turn up on Turner Classics this past weekend for Halloween.  It’s been at least a decade since I last saw it on television. Not that it hasn’t been on necessarily, but with the channel guides it’s a lot easier to find when some of the more obscure films […]

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 […]
