Oh, The Metahumanity! (Apr 20-24)

Another five hours of superheroic television under my bet. Everything's still ticking along nicely, but this week represented a dip in a few of the shows.


Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Apr 20-24)

This week's Wrasslin' Wroundup asks the question: why aren't you watching Lucha Underground? Do you not have El Rey? Do you despise pro wrestling? Or are you just incapable of feeling joy in your heart. Because...


The Babadook

I'm not a big horror guy. I'm not particularly averse to any of the elements that make up a horror movie - gore, creepiness, startle-jumps, etc., I just tend to like those elements servicing other genres, not piled together without much else going on.

Even my favorite horror movies are either straight-up horror comedies like Shaun of the Dead, or something like Cabin in the Woods, which is horror and comedy and also general cleverness.

@midnight Power Rankings (4/13-16)

@midnight Power Rankings

A very, very solid week for @midnight. Tim Minchin returned, and did better than his first outing, although I don't think the format really suits him. Or he might have just been distracted by Rhys Darby, who put on another bravura performance. You could watch Minchin and Fulcher just watching him in wonder to see what would come out of his mouth next.

This is definitely the most distributed power ranking to date, with three different episodes making up the top three. But what can I say? Guy Branum and Kurt Braunholer are two of my favorites.

Oh, The Metahumanity! (Apr 14-17)

I'm going to be making a concerted effort to make time for one episode each of Daredevil and Powers going forward. We'll see how that works out.


Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Apr 13-16)

A shocking swerve in this Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup, with an underdog pulling off a surprise... well, "victory" isn't the right word, but still, a shocking upset.


Nyko Modular Charge Station for PS4

Part of being an OLDNERD is having a lot of game controllers. Part of having a lot of controllers is making sure they're all charged. Some of them (WiiU, XBox One) use regular batteries, so it's easy enough to pull from the pile of Eneloops and other, lesser, NiMH rechargeables.

@midnight Power Rankungs (Apr 6-9)

A bit late on these, because Daredevil

On the downside, this past week had two clearly missable episodes of @midnight. On the upside, for the first time in a long time, the Thursday show was the funniest show of the week, which means I need to snag/watch the uncut version. It was an unofficial Pete Holmes Show reunion, plus, R2-D2. Can't go wrong there.

Pete Holmes (Th)
Matt McCarthy (Th)
Jamie Lee (Th)
Will Forte (W)

Oh, The Metahumanity! (Apr 6-12

Oh The Metahumanity

Bye week for Flash and Arrow this week, so I've put off Oh The Metahumanity to encompass the premiere of Daredevil and some of my Powers catching up.
