    TNG-HD rewatch

    OK, I know I just watched TNG not too long ago, but with these blurays, I thought it would be nice to go through and comment on the restorations episode by episode. Disc One 1x01-1x02 "Encounter at Farpoint" - First impressions, obviously, are that this show looks astonishing. On DVD, the...

    Deep Space Nine: Holy Shit

    Enterprise: Bullshit.

    1x01/02 "Broken Bow" - Captain Jonathan Archer of the Enterprise NX-01 undertakes his first mission, to return a wounded Klingon carrying vital intelligence back to his people. Archer paces some more so we know how serious he is. As a pilot episode, this one's pretty decent. It has trouble, of...

    ...the FUCK?

    Aside from the fact that I seem to somehow be 100% unhirable, despite positive interview after positive interview... ...tonight my soul-sucking vampire job throws this curveball: For all color pictures printed in the paper, we must use .tif files.

    Daredevil

    Recent news about Fox moving ahead with a new 'Daredevil' movie made me want to go ahead and draw Marvel's Man Without Fear. I redesigned the costume a bit... I wanted him to look a bit more functional and also a couple callbacks to his ninja training origins. This is where I'm at with it so far.

    Farscape review thread

    Well, I decided not to continue 'Babylon 5'. Instead, I'll turn my efforts toward 'Farscape', another series I've seen bits and pieces of but never explored in depth. 1x01 "Premiere" - Astronaut John Crichton is sucked into a wormhole to a bizarre area of space. His ship accidentally collides...

    Babylon 5 - Season 1

    OK, so I've heard a lot about this show. People seem to love it. I've caught the occasional episode here or there, but never really got into it. Much like my episode-by-episode reviews of TOS, I'm gonna tackle J. Michael Straczynski's sci-fi opus via the magic of Netflix Watch Instantly...

    'The Walking Dead' 1x01-2

    AMC has aired two episodes of the series now. The pilot, directed by Frank Darabont, was just plain freaking awesome. It takes the basic blueprint of the comics, brings it to life and expands up on it. My favorite part of the pilot is probably expanding on the roles of Morgan and Duane...

    "Superman: Earth One"

    Picked up this new graphic novel by J. Michael Straczynski and Shane Davis. Superman's origin is one of my favorite stories. I've read and watched numerous versions of it, and it never feels tired to me. I always enjoy seeing the tragic end of Krypton, a young boy raised well by caring...

    new toy

    So last weekend was a sales tax holiday here in Massachusetts. I used the opportunity to purchase a Wacom Intuos4 "Medium" graphics tablet. This thing takes some serious getting used to, but I'm pretty frickin' excited about it. I've spent some time over the last week just playing around...

    "Inception" (spoilers)

    I'm just gonna cut and paste this one from my blog. I do discuss the ending here, so, spoiler warning. Here goes: "Inception" is an amazing film. Mind-blowing, if you can stomach the bad pun. It is a film that spans multiple layers of consciousness, simultaneously, and yet the viewer is...

    "Spartacus: Blood and Sand"

    Starz has seen fit to retell the story of Spartacus. Why? Who knows. Why retell any story, I suppose. The problem is, of course, that there is extremely little story here for something that takes an entire 55 minutes to unfold. In literally every scene in this episode there is either...
