Episode 64 – Big Pussy Gets Popped

The Sopranos: Long Term Parking (5×12) THAT Death

As I binge watch The Sopranos there have been many episodes in the series that have made me dabble with the idea of writing some kind of review or article. For the most part my lazy bone has won and I decide to just enjoy the ride… Yeah, that all changed several hours ago when I arrived on Season 5 Episode 12, “Long Term Parking.” By the end of it there was no doubt in my mind that what I had just witnessed was likely one of the most iconic of the series, and probably one of the most iconic television reveals during the shows run. As I filled with all kinds of emotions one thing was clear- I had to write something.  She was one of my favorite characters in the series! From the moment the FBI latched onto her I knew the possibility of her death was very real (I mean how can we ever forget what happened to Big P***Y). Yet it’s the delivery and sequence of events that make it haunting …

Originals Coming to HBOMax

HBOMax is set to launch on May 27th! Along with a long list of Warner/HBO content from previous decades being added to the service there will of course be some original content at launch and more set to release in the coming months. Disney+ has served as a great example that despite how rich and thick your library of content is, the real hook for streaming lies in the original content. I won’t get into everything, but I wanted to highlight some of what we can expect. 1: Looney Tunes: The classic characters are back for streaming. We will be getting, at launch, eighty original eleven-minute episodes focused around the toons. That’s over FOURTEEN hours of new content. What can I say? I grew up going to bed watching this stuff. Of course I’m going to watch. 2: Elmo Talk Show: Alright…alright! Not for me but can certainly be something for younger audiences to watch as the new streaming service launches! 3: Love Life: The eight episode first season will be lead by Anna Kendrick. I …

Alan Moore F****** Hates HBO’s ‘Watchmen’: I’m Here For It

Oh what a time to be a Watchmen fan. I have seen the released trailer, and though I’m a HUGE fan of the graphic novel (a book I suggest everyone, and I mean EVERYONE read) I am equally intrigued and mesmerized be its creator, Alan Moore. Not familiar with the grumpy genius? Well, in the comic world he is known for his creations such as Batman’s The Killing Joke, his run on Swamp Thing, which brought the character to critical acclaim, the mind-blowing V for Vendetta, and of course the unmatched Watchmen.   Now, when I say this man is grumpy I am putting it VERY nicely. Having known about the creator for some time I can tell you that Alan Moore HATES any and all adaptations of his work. He is not for it AT. ALL. This man has spoken some real S*** when it has come to live-action versions of his creations or even taking his characters and recycling them with new writers/artists. Can we understand the anger? After all, imagine creating a piece of …
