    Aired August 18th, 2013
    9 PM, AMC

    Well, Hank, that could have gone better, couldn’t it? Everybody shows colors this episodes, and most of them are not flattering. Yes, even Hank and Marie, who have the right to be angry, show sides that are ugly. Hank most of all.

    Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are no longer part of the X-Files or the FBI, but that doesn't mean they're free from that shadow world. They find themselves up against a cult calling itself the Acolytes. They are searching for William, Dana and Fox's son. Soon Scully is kidnapped by one of the Acolytes, or someone who knows about them. And Mulder is approached by a man he thought long dead.

    It is, for me, the start of a new school year. The kids are back, the books are handed out, somehow a discussion of the Salem Witch Trials spun into me explaining that while Catholics are Christian that doesn’t mean all Christians are Catholics (I swear, it would make sense in context), and I’m actually feeling good. I’ve got a smart group of kids this year. They ask good questions and they seem receptive to the material. We’ve changed from a four-period 90-minute block schedule to a 7-period 53-minute class schedule, and the school day now flies by and I honestly feel every minute is productive. I’ve been trying to eat healthier and I’ve been exercising a little whenever possible, so both mentally and physically, I feel better than I have in a really long time. Plus, I’m getting married next year, and every time I remember that I get a great big smile on my face.

    Breaking Bad
    Episode 509 - Blood Money
    Aired August 11th, 2013
    9pm, AMC


    There’s a great thing in limited series, mainly that the creator says when it ends, not the network. We can all name shows that went on too damn long, that drained away what was good about them until they limped out of the room without you even noticing they were gone. (Oh, Simpsons, you should have gone out in a blaze of glory.) The good news? That’s not happening with Breaking Bad.

    Title: Born To Lose



    Rock seeks revenge for his fellow orphans. And he’ll get it if he has to fight every stripper ninja in the city. Wait, what?



    Writers: Daniel Freedman and Sina Grace
    Artist: Sina Grace
    Colorist: John Rauch
    Letterer: Rus Wooton

    Publisher: Image Comics


    This comic is probably best described as a grindhouse/cult ‘70’s movie in comic form, with a pulp scenario and world. Not so much tongue in cheek as graced with a bit of modernization to the characters. Sure, Rock looks like your average revenge driven street fighter, but he has friends/back yp/adopted

    At the Movies Episode 37: Superhero Double Feature

    by Blake M. Petit & Kenny Fanguy


    Blake and Kenny take in two superhero flicks this week. How does The Wolverine stack up against the rest of the X-Men franchise? How does Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox measure against the rest of the DC Animated films? The guys give their thoughts here.

    And what's cool this week? Blake recommends Flash Annual #2, and Kenny is watching Beware the Batman!

    For as long as I’ve been alive, I’ve wanted to see a comic book universe on the movie screen. Even when the first Michael Keaton Batman came out, part of me hoped they’d bring back Christopher Reeve (only two years removed from the disastrous Superman IV: The Quest For Peace) for one more go in the costume with the two icons together. Of course, that never happened. For some reason, there seemed to be a wall up between different comic book franchises on the screen. Freddy met Jason, the Aliens fought the Predators, Godzilla fought King Kong (and virtually everybody else), but the closest thing to a crossover we comic book fans got was a stray reference in Batman Forever when Val Kilmer made a crack about a train being “halfway to Metropolis by now.” But it wasn’t until 2008, in the post-credit sequence to Iron Man, that we finally got a hope of a larger world for cinematic superheroes. Nick Fury steps out of the shadows, says the words “Avengers Initiative,” and comic book nerds across America had to pay to reupholster their movie theater seats.

    Title: Trinity War--Chapter Three: House of Cards

    The Trinity create a split in the world of heroes.

    Writer: Jeff Lemire

    Colours: Jeromy Cox
    Letters: Carlos M. Mangual

    Editor: Brian Cunningham
    Publisher: DC Comics.

    The super hero community has been shaken to their very foundations. Their greatest champion, Superman has done the unthinkable: he's taken a life. Everyone has an idea of what happened and who is responsible. Unfortunately no one can agree on which idea is right or how to go about solving the mystery. So there comes a schism in their ranks. The Great Trinity-Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman-follow their own leads and take those heroes that believe them along. Of course there are other players involved and their plans are unfolding as well.

    Logan reluctantly heads to Japan to say goodbye to a dying acquaintances, and then all hell breaks loose.

    20th Century Fox




    You know when I realized this might actually be a good movie, unlike the first Wolverine? The sequence with the bear. That perfectly captured the character in a way that comics have, and any movie (outside the first two X-Men ) haven’t. Yes, he’s a badass, we all have that down, but that’s not really the essence of the character, or at least what I most like about Wolverine. He utterly loathes
