TV Binging and Series Finales (part II)

The other post was getting a bit long, so I am continuing it here (who knows, there may even be a part III!)Marvel's Agents of SHIELDI rather liked this series. It follows a group of SHIELD agents who are protecting the earth from whatever big bad happens to exist. All events take place after the first Avengers movie, so the big bad that kicked it off was HYDRA, and Agent Coulson was brought back from

TV Binging and Season Finales (part I)

Well, the one thing about this COVID-19 crisis hitting in the summer is that we have a lot of television to catch up on. This year is also the year of many final seasons of television shows.  I don't know if this was planned, or it was a good opportunity with the on-going pandemic.  I suspect a little bit of both (depending on the show).  Here are some quick thoughts on some recent finales

The Orville - scifi humor!

The Orville is a scifi comedy show coming to FOX this coming fall.  It being on FOX, if the show is any good it will most likely be cancelled (LOL), but I hope it's good and it stays on the air (if Family Guy is still on the air...then surely this must remain as well!)Many seem to be comparing it to Galaxy Quest, but I think the comparison is a bit off.  Galaxy Quest was about actors playing

Sevylon 5: Last best hope for peace

Back in the day a friend of mine and I used to have debates about which series was better, Babylon 5 or Star Trek Deep Space Nine.  I sided with DS9 back then (still do, the dialog on Babylon 5 is pretty awful - good story though).  There used to be a parody comic strip (which has now disappeared from the web) which had various off-shoots like Sevylon 5 (Babylong 5 parody).  If the
