Those who were hoping for a new Buffy show, you may have your wish in iZombie. Recently, I reviewed One Big Happy, and lamented about how stilted the show was, and how it suffered from “pilotitis,” the affliction that faces many new TV shows trying to garner audience at their outset. So much to explain, so little time. Well, iZombie … Read More

When the premise is “lesbian best friend is having her roommate’s baby, and the roommate gets married after a couple of days of a whirlwind romance to a sexy Brit who would otherwise get deported”, then you don’t expect “realistic” to happen too often. Still, on a scale from Bob Newhart to Three’s Company, in today’s TV world, you’d expect … Read More

DVD Review: Diamond Heist

Michael DohertyDVD Review, MoviesLeave a Comment

Diamond Heist

Diamond Heist opens with Terrence Anderson (Michael Madsen) in a gold jacket being a total asshole in some restaurant in London, smashing dishes and whatnot. He makes it a big point of mentioning that he’s lactose intolerant (if you think that will play a significant part later in the film, you are wrong; it’s never mentioned again). He gets a … Read More
