Immortal Guys Solving Crimes

I have recently realized that I enjoy a rather specialized television sub-genre: immortal guys and normal women solving crimes. Examples: Lucifer season 2 has just returned, with the prince of hell trying to figure out his feelings for the police detective he works with. In this most recent episode, “Stewardess Interruptus”, the two murder victims are former lovers of Lucifer, a nice device to complicate things. I recently binged the only season of Moonlight, a vampire PI series starring that […]

Sleepy Hollow: The Complete Third Season

It looked like the third season of Sleepy Hollow was getting back on track after a second season that lost its way, revisiting too many previous plots. Unfortunately, by the end of this most recent season, things were not where viewers wanted. The first scene of season 3 shows the headless horseman sucked into Pandora‚Äôs cube, indicating new threats and looking forward by killing the villain of the previous two seasons. The new showrunner, Clifton Campbell, seemed to be interested […]

The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series

Out this week is a wonderful brick of classic television. The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series is again available on Blu-ray, all 156 episodes in five seasons on 24 discs. There was a previous 2012 set released by another company, but rights have transferred, this package is more compact, and the price has dropped. The show looks beautiful, crisp and yet timeless in black and white, and I was surprised at just how many of the episodes were both new […]

If you’d like to see a thorough (if congratulatory) summation of the founding of the company, what lead up to it, and what happened after, check out The Image Revolution, an hour-and-20-minute 2013 documentary with participation from all of […]
