Amen! Fox Renews THE EXORCIST For Season Two!

I’ll be the first to admit how incredibly skeptical I was at the prospect of converting the original 1973 masterpiece film THE EXORCIST into a television series, but I’m happy that Jeremy Slater and company completely proved me wrong and delivered a 10-episode series that acted as both a fresh new take on the material […]

How BATES MOTEL Restored The PSYCHO “Legacy”

There was a very distinct reason I took it upon myself, with no actual filmmaking experience, to make THE PSYCHO LEGACY documentary. And the finale for A&E’s hit series BATES MOTEL solidified that reason. Plain and simple, I wanted the PSYCHO “legacy” to continue and I feared that, at the time that I started it, […]

I have a confession to make. This won’t come as a surprise to my friends and family, but to you, the people reading this who have no idea who I am, it will be something you don’t know about me. I like old people shows. MONK is one of my favorite TV shows ever. PSYCH […]

THE X-FILES Will Return For 10 More Episodes!

At the beginning of 2016, we were treated to the long awaited new season of THE X-FILES. Granted it was only 6 episodes, and among those 6, 2 were pretty darned great. The rest…. well, we assumed there were going to be more, right? They couldn’t just end it they way they did on that […]

Exploring the Legacy of MTV’s LIQUID TELEVISION

During the pre-internet days, if you wanted to watch something strange, unusual, and fringe you had to stay up pretty late. Back in the late-80s and early-90s, the best television usually happened around midnight, and it aired on MTV of all places. Back then MTV at midnight was the best teacher I could have ever had, regularly […]
