An Excerpt from “Life on the Street” – A Fictional Memoir from Bert

An Excerpt from “Life on the Street” by Paul Feldman J. Alphonse Gary served as Bert from Sesame Street’s personal assistant from 1968 to 1988. Below is an excerpt from his memoir, Life on the Street: 20 Years Behind the Scenes at Sesame Street: What later became known around the set as “The Bowie Knife Incident” was really the culmination of two solid years of Bert’s unchecked and fomenting rage. It was also his wake-up call that he had to clean up or face serious jail time, death, or both. I was eating lunch in the commissary with Luis when the...

~Matt Key Hey. Everybody. Stop what you’re doing and watch this trailer for the CW’s newest DC show, Legends of Tomorrow. Honestly. Just stop.

Still not convinced? Fine....

CONSTANTINE RECAP AND REVIEW: ‘BLESSED ARE THE DAMNED’ from LEGION OF LEIA

Check out more from Legion of Leia on their website! Follow Legion of Leia on twitter, here! Legion contributor Melissa Molina is recapping and reviewing Constantine for us this season. Follow her on Twitter @Meli_Molina! Another week ends, and with that, viewers are greeted with another new episode of Constantine. If you haven’t been keeping track at this point, this is the 7th episode of the freshmen series. There’s just only a few more to go before it falls into the deep abyss of hiatus, which is where NBC will decide whether or not they want to continue on with the series after all. It’s a sad thought, but if worse does come to worse, then you better sit in front of that television on Friday nights and soak up as much Constantine time as you can. ‘Blessed are the Damned’ begins with a hesitant preacher (Patrick Carroll) who thinks he can’t live up to the kind of reputation his father has with the congregation. There’s only one way he can sway them, and that’s through making a big show out of it with the poisonous snakes. Even though he’s fearing for his life, the preacher decides to show off the slithery friends and inevitably gets bit by one. The preacher dies for a moment, but then miraculously comes back to life. There’s something odd glowing in his hand,...

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. RECAP: SEASON 2 EPISODE 7 – “THE WRITING ON THE WALL” from LEGION OF LEIA

Legion contributor Christina Janke is recapping and reviewing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for us this season. Follow her on Twitter @IntrotoGeek! Happy Wednesday, readers! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back after a bye week, and it just keeps getting better and better with no signs of slowing down. A mystery is finally solved, but it just opens the door to even more questions! Yes, there will be spoilers. Hey, remember that guy at the very end of “A Fractured House”? Y’know, that mysterious dude at the tattoo parlor with all of those strange alien markings inked all over his body. He’s back, and he’s mackin’ on some artist who also knows about the markings. The two are just getting back from a night of drinks at a bar. They just met, but the artist feels like she still knows him from somewhere. The mysterious guy reveals himself to her (sort of), takes out a knife, and starts carving the symbols onto her body. Yeesh. At S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters, Coulson’s affliction is becoming more and more frequent — from once or twice a month, to one every day. Skye still has no idea what they could possibly mean. If it’s a map, it’s a map that leads to nowhere as far as she’s concerned. Meanwhile, May and the other agents are out looking for Ward, who escaped during his transfer. They track him down to a bus station. Before Triplet can act,...

BBC America’s Intruders Is Wonderfully Unsettling

Well, this trailer for BBC America’s new show, Intruders, is wonderfully unsettling, which means it’s right up my alley.  It is based on the book, The Intruders by Michael Marshall Smith and is about a secret association of folks bent on attaining immortality by possessing other folks’ bodies. Intruders premieres August 23rd and stars Mira Sorvino, John Simm (Doctor Who) and one of my favorite British actors, James Frain (The Tudors, True Blood, Grimm). A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, the series spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated...
