    My Top 5 Most Anticipated TV Series of 2016

    This list may surprise you a bit, seeing as how one item is a bit of a cop out and there are no superheroes series on it, but try to keep in mind that top _______ list articles are entirely subjective. I don’t care who’s writing them or how knowledgeable they are within a particular industry...

    To Watch or Not: Jessica Jones

    Jessica Jones is unlike anything you’ve you’ve seen from Marvel Entertainment thus far. The studio that brought you Daredevil is back in Hell’s Kitchen, only this time there aren’t any heroes involved. This time we’re following Jessica Jones, a private investigator with superpowers who wants...

    An Ode to 'Firefly'

    While doing a bit of research to compile a list of the top five new television series that premiered this year, I discovered that there are still a few popular series I haven’t watched. So that article is on hold for a moment while I binge watch a few new shows like Better Call Saul and wait a...

    'Into the Badlands' Premiere – Spoiler Free Review

    I’ve never been a fan of spectacle martial arts movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Sure the action sequences are cool looking, but the hyper-choreographed style tends to take me out of the narrative. I wasn’t impressed when Into the Badlands kicked off its series premiere with a...

    The Truth about Digital Piracy, From an Ex-Torrent Junkie

    I find it irritating when people talk about issues of morality with no real experience, like when Prohibitionists proclaim the negative nature of alcohol without ever tasting a drop or when anti-marijuana activists vilify the substance without ever toking up. People who have hard opinions on...

    On the Topic of Spoilers

    While browsing the web and keeping myself up-to-date on the latest news stories within the entertainment industry, I came across Screenrant’s article revealing episode titles and plot summaries for Netflix’s upcoming Jessica Jones series. The article’s appearance left me thinking about spoilers...

    Where is Sherlock?

    I’ve been a fan of Sherlock Holmes for as long as I can remember, which is odd considering I’ve never read a single book by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. For decades the only Sherlockian tale I ever knew about was The Hound of the Baskervilles, and that was purely thanks to Wishbone, a 90s children’s...

    You’re the Worst Ventures into Clinical Depression

    This article contains spoilers! I’m a big fan of You’re the Worst, a comedic FX television series centered around the relationship of two incredibly cynical, pessimistic people who don’t believe in love or monogamy. In fact, one of the first articles I ever wrote for this site was “To Watch or...

    Heroes Reborn Verdict

    I’ve quit watching Heroes Reborn. It’s not the worst show on television, it’s just not for me. After giving the show five episodes to pique my interest, I’m calling it quits. Heroes Reborn isn’t bad. I think plenty of people, especially fans of Heroes, will find a lot to like from the...

    The Misrepresentation of Tech in TV

    I’m a tech geek. I’ve built multiple computers from scratch, can read and write in multiple programming languages, stay up-to-date on the latest technological breakthroughs, and yes, I even wear glasses. While I often don’t mind suspending my disbelief for a story, nothing takes me out of a...

    A Supergirl Pilot Review, by an Alleged Virtual Blackbeard

    CBS' Supergirl looks sexier in normal clothes than in her costume. There, I finally said it. I’ve fought writing about the Supergirl pilot for months, but with the show just around the corner I figured it was finally time to break the silence. Supergirl is the newest superhero television...

    What Do You Want to See?

    As a regular writer for DTV, I'm curious as to the type of content regular readers what to see. I'm not really sure where to post this since the writing section is behind a mods/contributors only wall, so I'm asking here. Is there anything in particular you'd like to see more of? Topics you'd...

    Black Mirror: A Modern Modest Proposal

    I never really enjoyed reading for school. Classics like “Beowulf” and Romeo and Juliet are some of the best sleeping aids I’ve ever utilized. I appreciate them now for what they once were but my young mind found just about everything assigned throughout my various English classes incredibly...

    From Cops to FBI: The Evolution of TV Crime Dramas

    I recently watched the series premiere episodes of two new FBI crime dramas, Blindspot and Quantico. Neither show really jumped out at me as worth discussing, although I’d definitely recommend Quantico over the clichéd, plothole riddled mess that is Blindspot. But they did highlight the...

    What are you favorite running TV series right now?

    Even though I grew up in the MySpace, Facebook, blogging/forum internet age, I've never really been a bit forum person. But since I am a writer here, I am curious about what kind of shows you're all currently interested in. I'm a fan of a lot of shows, from CW's The Flash to Lifetime's Unreal...

    "Limitless" Gets Better, But Doesn’t Look Good Enough

    Do you remember the 2011 movie Limitless? Probably not, but CBS execs sure haven’t. They’ve recently started airing a TV series of the same name that serves as a sequel to the movie. I’m not going to lie to you, the pilot wasn’t very strong. I thought the story was more or less a dumbed-down...

    Spoiler-Free Review: Heroes Reborn Season Premiere

    Heroes Reborn, a 13-episode miniseries on NBC, snuck onto TV under my radar with a two-hour series premiere last night. It’s a sequel to the 2006 Heroes television series that garnered substantial acclaim and recognition during its first season before nose diving in popularity until finally...

    The Market Reality of YouTube Gaming Live and Video Game Streaming

    I was working for an internet content aggregator start-up company when Amazon bought Twitch for $1.1 billion - $970 million of which was paid in cash. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Twitch is the premier video game streaming site on the internet today. It offers people a place to...
