“Hey, I’ve got a card game you might really like,” Commander Shepherd told me. “You do comics, right? Yes? Well, there’s this game called Senti-” She was cut off then by that large honking sound that rEAper lasers make. You know the one.
I’ve known that Sony/PlayStation were in production of an original superhero-drama by Brian Michael Bendis for a while now. There was no surprise that Powers would be coming this year to PSN. There was a surprise, however, when it released yesterday (episode 1 on YouTube, 2 and 3 on PSN). It’s really quite good.
With Netflix’s third season of House of Cards in the bag, I found myself last week in a bit of an entertainment void. Clearly the people behind scheduling/programming knew this was going to be a thing because Tina Fey’s brainchild featuring Ellie Kemper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, released its first full season right when it was needed. Let me start by warning everyone, Kimmy Schmidt is the ultimate in binge-watching TV.
The first question that I had, heading into The Last Man on Earth, was how long can a series last with only one character? The answer came quickly, when in the second episode it was found that Phil Miller (Will Forte) may well be the last man on Earth, but there’s at least one female there too.

Last week we finally saw the release of Neill Blomkamp’s third feature film, a spiritual successor to the 1986 classic Short Circuit. Chappie is all about the development of the world’s first true AI, a robot that can think for itself, express itself through art, and most importantly learn.

I have an unnatural addiction to political drama. It started way back in 1999 when my new friend (and now God) Aaron Sorkin took me inside of The West Wing. Over the course of 7 seasons, I developed a love for the cast, world, and writing of the series. It branched into a need for more and I sought out all of Aaron Sorkin’s works, then and now. Still I needed more.
