    Happy 46th, Doctor Who

    With two hearts, a respiratory bypass system that allows you to go without air, an internal body temperature of 60 degrees and the ability to enter a self-induced coma-like state until your body heals from any mortal injury, it’s not wonder you look as good as you do.

    Doctor Who: David, Say it isn't so!

    FYI, it’s 2059, for those playing along at home. The Earth has its first off-world colony. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the planet is also inhabited by aliens that use a water compound to infect victims. The really bad news is that this marks the beginning of the end of David […]

    MI5 vs 24 – Smackdown!

    I have to open this debate to everyone since three people, TODAY alone, described MI5 (Spooks in the UK) as the British 24. I couldn’t form words fast enough to verbalize a laundry list of reasons as to why there is no comparison between the two. MI5 is, without question IMHO, one of the best shows […]
