Timeless Recap: (S01E03) “Atomic City”

Timeless Recap: (S01E03) “Atomic City” A Review for Time-Travel Fans (SPOILERS!!) Let’s see if I can keep this short this week. Episode 3 of NBC’s Timeless is the first to open in the present day. I’d rather hoped it would, since episode 2 ended with Lucy arriving home in time for her engagement party. Remember how she’s engaged to a man she never met before? Because alternate timelines, and so forth? I was really hoping to watch her deal with the awkwardness of a party full of people she doesn’t know, and pretend to dote on the fiancé-stranger. Instead...

Timeless Recap: (S01E02) “The Assassination of Abraham”

I need to tell you a story before we get into episode 2 of NBC’s Timeless. Not sure it’s important, but it’s relevant. And it may have impacted how I feel about this week’s episode. Last year I put my time-travel obsession to work. My wife’s theater company holds a fundraiser several times annually: a short play festival (with open bar!). There was a 1930s theme, so I wrote a radio play in the period style, modeled after Flash Gordon-type sci-fi serials for kids. Remember I mentioned Voyagers! last week? I stole that premise and wrote “The Time Fixers”:...

‘Timeless’ Review for Time Travel Fans (S01E01)

Hi, remember me? I’m the one a bit obsessed with time-travel stories, especially in film and on TV. (You can see just how obsessed, here). I just watched the pilot episode of NBC’s new series Timeless, and… well, we need to talk. If you’ve read any of my previous posts here at GGA, you know that I’m a little funny about this issue: I have rules about how time-travel (TT) needs to be portrayed, but I might really enjoy fare that fails to follow those rules. The classic example is Back to the Future and its sequels. I enjoy...

Those Who Are Cursed – A Look at “Outcast” & “Penny Dreadful”

LIVING WITH DEMONS Those Who Are Cursed – A Look at “Outcast” & “Penny Dreadful” Review by Mary Gent The Movie Guys The righteous and the wicked. Often times these two words intertwine, helixed into a unified idea. This idea that a person who has faith, whose existence depends on their devotion to a powerful God, can be a vessel for the very darkness they cast aside. And this is where the struggle begins. This is where everyone around these genuflected humans begin to suffer. This is the folklore of those who are cursed. I would consider myself a recovering...

IT’S THE END OF MARVEL!

~Matt Key Marvel released this teaser today, saying that it is the last teaser they are releasing after a full fortnight of teasing us! The End? Marvel. Say it isn’t so! Please don’t go away! You have so much to live for! For a few years now, it seems, Marvel has been building to a sort of company wide reboot, taking all the best elements of their alternate universes, like the Ultimate Universe (the 1610 Universe), and combining them all into the mainline continuity of what they call their 616 Universe. Of note, this story comes out in SPRING...
