Crimes and Punishments: Sherlock Holmes Review: Elementary

crimes-and-punishments-sherlock-holmes-headerThere are many licenses that I wouldn’t want to be put in charge of but Sherlock Holmes would likely be at the top of the list. There is a great disconnect between the cognitive abilities of Sherlock Holmes and me, for example. He can look at a person and some clues and quickly deduce what happened as new evidence arises.

Sunday Link-Off: Foreign Affairs

penelope-cruz-esquire14-03One of the results of having such an interconnected world is that it seems that something that happens in one country will have an impact on many others.

Entertainment Link-Off: In A Flash

danielle panabakerSo the Fall TV season is in high gear as most of the new and returning shows have premiered. A standout this season is The Flash, which is carrying some solid ratings (for the CW anyway). So far, after 2 episodes, it certainly has me hooked. It probably helps that Danielle Panabaker appears in the series as Caitlin Snow.

After the jump, revisiting the ‘Dead’ series again, a new twist to Gambit’s…

Doctor Who: Mummy on the Orient Express Review

doctor-who-mummy-on-the-orient-express-headerIf you’re The Doctor, there’s no such thing as a quiet vacation. You can’t just TARDIS into a quiet little corner of time and space to relax. Something always goes wrong. Often it’s homicidal robots. Sometimes, it’s homicidal aliens. This time, it was a homicidal mummy that could only be seen by the intended victim. For not getting any time to relax, The Doctor doesn’t look too bad for 2,000…

The OSW Review ECW Playlist

osw-review-ecw-bannerI’ve never made it a secret that I’m a big fan of the OSW Review podcast. It features three self-described racist Irishmen, Jay, Steve (V1) and Steve (Mr. OOC), as the chronologically critique wrestling storylines pay-per-view by pay-per-view.

Having looked at the Hulkamania era of WWF and the David Arquette era in WCW, the boys’ most recent chronological critique looks at the rise, fall, rebirth…

Wednesday Link-Off: The Finger Thing Means The Taxes

alessandra-ambrosio-harpersbazaaraus14-01You’d think that I would have had a lot of time to catch up on my writing this weekend seeing as it was a long weekend here in Canada but no. Between lots of cooking and lots of family visits and a Harry Potter marathon, I’m more behind this week than last.

So while I am busy writing a lot of stuff, here’s Alessandra Ambrosio.

Sunday Link-Off: Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving

lauren-cohan-gq14-04Good news! It’s Thanksgiving weekend in Canada which means copious amounts of turkey. Bad news! We have to sit through the Yanks doing the same in a month-and-a-half. It’s probably a good thing to space out Thanksgiving and Christmas like us Canucks because 1) that means that you’re not freezing during Thanksgiving weekend and can actually go outside; and 2) there’s not a run on the turkeys all…
