Attack on Titan: Season One (Series Review)

20140423-083458.jpg

Requested by more than one follower, my review of Attack on Titan season one is something I’ve been meaning to do for some time. My issue? Well it’s been almost a year since I’ve seen the first season. Likely most of the issues I had with the series and many of the praises also may be forgotten. Luckily enough, I did review each episode on my Trakt.tv account. So this will be an…

This post contains information some may consider of a spoilery nature to an upcoming episode of Doctor Who, penned by Mark Gatiss, so if you don’t wish to be spoiled, this is your warning.

The ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’ Chronological Timeline

The ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’ Chronological Timeline

MCU_timeline.JPG

The MCU is a constantly moving, constantly turning, evolving, breathing entity of a machine. It’s the grand idea that, after selling their big name franchises (Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four) to other companies, Marvel would be left to make films with all their “lesser” characters, but that they’d do so in a way that fans could see they shared a unique universe. And after a few films (Iron…

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1x17 “Turn, Turn, Turn” (Episode Review)

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1×17 “Turn, Turn, Turn” (Episode Review)

Turnturnturn.JPG

In a surprise twist in the third act, Marvel’s Agents of SH.I.E.L.D. is actually doing incredibly well. It obviously doesn’t have the stunning numbers it did in it’s first few episodes, but in every respect otherwise, the show is excelling. It comes as no surprise that it seems like the entire season has actually been grafted around this episode. When they pitched the initial idea to the Marvel…

Did You Know? You Can Find Gandalf’s Sword in Game of Thrones

Did You Know? You Can Find Gandalf’s Sword in Game of Thrones

Glamdring.JPG

To mark the return of HBO’s hit series I thought I might share a little something cool and pointless your way. Remember that little fantasy film series they made in the early 2000s? What was it called again… Oh! The Lord of the Rings!? Yeah! Well, you might find it of intrigue to note that Gandalf’s very own blade ‘Glamdring’ sits proud and tall upon Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne. A reddit user…
