  • An End to Streaming?

    An End to Streaming?

    “Why Don’t You Have Netflix Yet?” or “Ever Since I Started Streaming, I’ve Saved So Much Money on DVDs!” These were the comments when Netflix first emerged, and they didn’t particularly excite me. We had no interest in Netflix because there was nothing on it that we watched. So, jokingly, I said, “If Star Trek…

  • Saturday Morning #3: Vox Machina

    Saturday Morning #3: Vox Machina

    Turning a tabletop role-playing game (RPG) into a successful animated series isn’t something you hear about every day, but “Critical Role” achieved just that. It started as an attempt to create a single animated episode and turned into a full-fledged series with three seasons already. What makes The Legend of Vox Machina so enjoyable? And…

  • The Princess Bride – my perfect film

    The Princess Bride – my perfect film

    One of my favorite movies is “The Princess Bride.” It’s a film suitable for children aged 7 and up (although these days, it’s typically rated for 12-year-olds). And it’s also incredibly enjoyable for adults. Fantasy, humor, romance – all in just the right proportions, in a story that’s perfectly crafted.

    Looking forward to new TV shows #2

    Exciting new TV series are on the horizon, and I’ve handpicked a few, coincidentally all falling in the realm of fantasy!

  • Star Trek: Picard, it’s a fantastic ending

    Star Trek: Picard, it’s a fantastic ending

    In Star Trek: Picard, we witness an older Captain Picard, retired and done with the outside world. He has withdrawn to the family estate, trying his hand at winemaking. It appears as if we’re starting at the happy ending of the Star Trek series, The Next Generation. But is everything truly as serene and concluded…

  • Mad Men as a Time Capsule

    Mad Men as a Time Capsule

    If you haven’t watched Mad Men yet, I highly recommend it. The series originally aired from 2007 to 2015, making it quite an older show. But since the story unfolds in the 1960s-1970s era, it doesn’t immediately feel outdated. Well, except for the fact that the 1960s was full of dated attitudes and opinions. The…

  • Film Weekend Tips #2: Some SF

    Film Weekend Tips #2: Some SF

    It’s quite clear where my preference lies when it comes to films, isn’t it? I’ve got three science fiction film recommendations for you and I’m absolutely certain that even non-scifi fans will enjoy them. That’s the beauty of science fiction: it often adds an extra layer to genres like thought-provoking films, comedies, or action movies.…

  • Weekly Watch #4

    Weekly Watch #4

    We’ve added some new series to our schedule again. It’s still challenging to stick to the schedule when you have so many exciting series to watch. So, the schedule remains much the same, but occasionally something sneaks in! On Mondays and Sundays, we now have two new series. Read on!

  • Scifi Humor in Galaxy Quest

    Scifi Humor in Galaxy Quest

    In 1999, Galaxy Quest hit the screens. That feels like ages ago for a film that I still consider the best sci-fi comedy (just like Space Balls). The perfect mix of humor and science fiction, the impeccable cast, and flawless execution – everything in this movie is simply just right. You don’t even have to…

  • Proper Medical Drama: House MD

    Proper Medical Drama: House MD

    We watched the first five seasons years ago and then decided to stop. It was getting a bit repetitive: a critically ill patient comes into the hospital, Dr. House and his team try to treat them, and the first three attempts fail, but the fourth one does the trick. The formulaic repetition became a bit…
