If you’ve realized anything over the last fifteen years, it’s that 1980s cartoons were so awesome that movie studios can’t wait to make hundred million dollar movie versions of childhood heroes. Turbo Teen, however, will probably never get the Tinsel Town Treatment, because… well, did you watch the video? However, I still find this show memorable as all hell. That counts for something!

When I was 10 years old, must see television existed for me in the shape of They Came from Outer Space. Weekly appointments on the local channel 9 syndication network were mandatory for me… and probably just me, as there are only 20 glorious episodes which aired from 1990 to 1991.

The 1980s was a magical decade. “Bad” meant “good;” we wanted to know what love was and wanted someone to show us – also, Return of the Jedi. Am I right, folks? I’m pretty sure I’m right.
And there was also the Beauty and the Beast tv series, which existed because… blow, I guess. Read the rest of this entry
Ah, the 1990s. It was a different time. On the tube, television shows like Friends and Full House dominated the airwaves, but there were other programs to watch – such as three seasons of Forever Knight. My sister and I watched the hell out of this show… well, for probably just the first season. Read the rest of this entry

Skeletor has got to be the most unlikely of spokesmen, but there his is, shilling for Honda. If you needed any more proof that people my age have taken control of a large segment of society, I submit to you He-Man and Battlecat in the rear view cam screen. Read the rest of this entry
There are a lot of Breaking Bad t-shirts, hoodies, posters and who knows what else out there for sale, but this is my favorite. The folks at RedBubble seem to be the mad geniuses behind the Pinkman and the Brain line of Breaking Bad merchandise and it just sets my imagination afire. Read the rest of this entry
If you watch Breaking Bad, then you know that Marie’s favorite color is purple. She’s always dressed in purple and everything at Hank and Marie’s house is purple. Purple rug, purple pillows, purple striped chair, her shopping bags are purple, her effing tea kettle is purple… it never ends. Maybe the ending of the show should have been Marie pulling the strings because she’s the Breaking Bad universe’s version of The Joker. Nobody would have seen that coming!
If you’ve never seen We Stand Alone Together (The Band of Brothers Documentary), now’s the time to check it out. Then, check out the Band of Brothers miniseries. Read the rest of this entry
“Say my name.”
I’ve finally caught up to the rest of the universe and finished all five seasons of Breaking Bad. It was a fascinating journey and I think most agree that it’s easily in the top five of best dramas ever on television. The last season, however, was the most unique of the series, and I’m going to dive into it a bit deeper. Read the rest of this entry
