Expanding Horizons: Anime

2014 was an interesting yeat for me. I had to fulfill my duty as a Finnish man and go through the conscription thing that's in use in Finland. That meant that half of 2014 was that kind of a phase where I couldn't really watch anything since it was really hard. Shockingly, there's not that much free time in the army. There is some, but you are so tired that you don't really go ”Great, now I have time to watch *insert a TV show here”. You just pass out in the corner. On the plus side, I got to shoot with an assault rifle and I saw a plethora of WWII timed weapons (MG42 was absurdly heavy) and shot with a howitzer.

The reason why I bring this up? Prior to going to the army, I had been trying to get into anime as a ...Read more

Deutschland 83 'Able Archer' The Season Finale Review
I do hope I can sleep peacefully again. Last night Deutschland 83 had its season finale and it has not been renewed yet. Do I want it to be renewed? Yes and no. Yes because it was great, no because it took me back to memories I’d rather forget.

In 1983 I was 24/25, just like the main character Martin and I lived in the Netherlands just a few kilometers from the German border. Although we were not divided into a West and East part, we were very much part of what was happening in West Europe at that point in time. Next to Germany, the Netherlands had the most demonstrations, active peace movements and too much information to handle for young adults. We had the innocent and naive people, the left winged ones who were against the US and their weapons but said nothing about the Soviet ...Read more

What is Your Favorite (Relation)-SHIP That You Know Will Never Happen?
This thought began percolating around in my head this week as I watched another fantastic episode of Revolution this week (please people come back - Season 2 is the show we wanted in Season 1). All of us have our favorite TV shows whatever they may be and we all have our very own favorite characters and favorite relationships. I'm quite interested in learning if there are any oddball pairings that you wish would happen, but know for certain (or at least pretty sure) will never happen. Here are five quick ones off the top of my head.

1. Marlie - Sebastian Monroe and Charlie Matheson from Revolution

During Season 1 it was Charlie's mission in life to find her brother and help precipitate the downfall of the show's Big Bad and Bogeyman Sebastian Monroe. Monroe and Charlie never really shared the screen much in Season 1 (that I ...Read more

Weigh in: What Shows Were Tough to Let Go and Which Series Finales Are You Dreading?
So with the end of HIMYM rapidly approaching, it got me thinking about what recent shows ended that left a hole in my heart and viewing schedule. These shows are ones that knew the end was coming and had time to wrap everything up (mostly). Abruptly cancelled shows is a whole other topic.


Burn Notice 2007-2013 7 seasons

Had me from the pilot on. It was fast paced and funny. After 7 seasons it was time for it to end and the last season was pretty epic, going very dark but still tying up loose ends and giving a ...Read more

Introducing Daredevil
Hello Daredevils,

This will be a spoilery introduction/review/a sample of my Daredevil feelings (with cartoon hearts and flowers, just in case any of you is allergic), so beware.

I'd been excited about this show since the first trailer came out but I didn't really have high ...Read more
watch it, dammit!

The Most Romantic Moment in SciFi TV
This was really hard. SciFi lends itself to many things - but romance usually feels so contrived. Maybe growing up with Captain Kirk made me cynical to the ability for SciFi to do "romantic" really right. And being a guy - well we do have different ideas of what romance is. But I easily narrowed it down to 2 scenes. Number 2 is from Lost: "The Constant." The phone call from Desmond to Penny in the end - where that love literally saves his life as he makes contact with his constant... well if you do not feel something in that last scene then you have no heart.

But MY Number 1. The one that sends chills down my spine (and other places) is from season 2 of Farscape. Farscape did a great job of doing 3 episode mini arcs during a season. The set up is this - Part one of "Look at ...Read more

Which Show(s) Should I Catch Up On Over These Holidays?
So the staff here at recently posted a list shows they suggest we try and watch over the holidays (instead of spending it with our families, I mean, who wants to do that anyway?) while our favourite shows are on mid-season hiatus. It got me thinking of my own list that’s been slowly compiling, not only this year, but for several years, of shows that I’ve really wanted to start watching but haven’t had the time to get to. As you can see, there’s a few there, and I thought what better way than to figure out which to start watching then to ask you, the users. I have come to very much appreciate and respect your opinions in regards to television, so I was hoping you would all help me out.

I was going to write a short description about my ...Read more
