The Geeky

Every Rose has its Thorn…

…and every Babylon 5 had its Thornton. Yepp, exactly that one. Unfortunately the B5 curse seems to strike again and now Ron Thornton has some serious health troubles it seems and needs to raise some cash. The Larry Schulz story happening all over again? I hope not! After all, the effects on Babylon 5 were […]

The 4th of Frank

One of the few luxuries I’m affording myself from time to time is trying to keep my DVD and Blu-Ray collections complete on my very limited budgets, and of course the fourth season of House of Cards was high on my list. It’s only been released here about a week ago after becoming available on […]

Not so A-Maz(e)-ing

One of the more questionable “pleasures” of again having access to more TV channels is that I slowly get to catch up on movies on my backlog. Sometimes that’s a good thing, but more often than not I come to the realization that I really didn’t miss out on much. I don’t need to write a […]
