Review by C.J. Bunce The top genre TV actress Rose McIver is back and as irresistible as ever.  The star of the wildly popular series iZombie is right back in her wheelhouse in CBS’s new series Ghosts: rapid-fire dialogue, outlandish situations where she must lead a crew of characters to decipher and inhabit myriad character […]

Review by C.J. Bunce After its first episode back in 2015, we called it “your next favorite TV series.”  This week iZombie saw its last episode.

After a painfully long wait for fans, the CW Network renewed the hit horror comedy/drama iZombie for a fifth season last May.  A year later and that final season is here, beginning with its season opener next Thursday.  What began as a successful comic book series by writer Chris Roberson and artist Michael Allred for […]

We rated it one of the best TV superhero series of the decade (behind Marvel’s Luke Cage) in our wrap-up of the first 10 years of borg.  In the first season of Stargirl the series never let up, never let us down, and with this week’s new trailer it looks like it’s full steam ahead.  […]

Review by C.J. Bunce A lot of child actors who begin in horror roles tend to continue in the genre through their entire careers.  Why is that?  Take Isabelle Fuhrman, star of the 2009 surprise hit, Orphan, where at the age of 10 she starred opposite Vera Farmiga and Peter Sarsgaard as Esther (it’s too […]

    Review by C.J. Bunce In many ways Stephen King’s new supernatural crime novel Later is a natural follow-on to his two earlier Hard Case Crime novels, Joyland, which I loved, and The Colorado Kid, which will have me revisiting it for years to identify what I am sure is a hidden story beneath the […]
