The Forgotten Frankenstein Sitcom of 1979

CBS had no shortage of classic prime time comedies in the 1970s. This was the era of All in the Family, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, M*A*S*H, and more. For some reason, though, the network just couldn’t get a foothold on Wednesday nights. It became a veritable Bermuda Triangle of comedy, with show after show

Revisiting the Movie that Warped My Mind as a Child

When you’re a kid, movies can get to you in a way that they just can’t when you’re grown up. By the time you’re in elementary school, you know a lot about what’s supposedly “real” and what’s supposedly “unreal,” but the line between those worlds is blurrier.

Season 4 of Hannibal Might Really Be Happening

Art by Arkarti Over the weekend, we saw a Hannibal reunion take place over YouTube. I only just watched this now, and was only expecting it to be fun to see all the cast and crew together again after Hannibal was cancelled 5 years ago. However, to my delight, they spoke heavily of the future

Real Nightmares: Joe Meets the Yeti

A Few Quotes from Our Vampire Friends

Lately, I’ve been watching Castlevania on and off with my boyfriend. Let’s be honest. I’ve been watching a lot of television lately to fill up all of the excess time on my hands due to the Coronavirus. I really can’t go to any of my usual haunts, so Netflix has become an important part of
