Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1
Written by Andy Mangels
Art by Judit Tondora
Colors by Michael Bartolo and Stuart Chaifetz
Letters by Tom Orzechowski and Lois Buhalis
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: December 7, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

This revival of iconic characters from my youth has been extraordinarily hit or miss, but in the case of Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1, it is certainly a home run. I was always a huge fan of Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman, but only occasionally watched The Bionic Woman. Not sure if it was a schedule conflict or what; I remember liking the 1970s Lindsay Wagner show, but just not seeing it often. Now, our friends at Dynamite Entertainment have teamed up with DC Comics to bring us one of the best TV titan team-ups ever!

Last week on This is Us, William told Randall (Ron Cephas Jones, Sterling K. Brown) the story of his beginnings, and we see young William’s desire to find his birth family. Jack and Rebecca (Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore) took William to karate as a child to have black male role models. The siblings went to their family cabin one last time. Kevin invited Olivia (Justin Hartley, Janet Montgomery), but that didn’t work out. Randall accidentally drank a mushroom-laced smoothie and he hallucinates Jack, who still is the best dad ever, allowing Randall to truly understand his mother.

Book Review: Art Of Atari

Art of Atari review

Art of Atari
Hardcover | Kindle
Written by Tim Lapetino
Foreword by Ernest Cline
Afterword by Robert V. Conte
Dynamite Entertainment
Publication Date: October 25, 2016

Art of Atari, a lavish book which covers all things visually historic and celebratory regarding the storied, pioneering video game company, is out in bookstores now, and without question, if there ever was a must-have book for the video game zealot, the pop culture maven, or the scores of gamers in between, this is it.

Absolutely essential from cover to cover and irresistible in its one-two dazzling punch with its presentment of facts and a literal overstuffed yet 100 percent effective usage of photos containing pretty much every single facet of the company’s output that required some sort of art, Art of Atari leaves no stone un-turned, not even the most minute pebble. From the packaging of the boxes for its line of 2600 VCS games to the sides and front of its successful and now almost legendary line of arcade coin-op games, and advertisements that stretched from stark simple white background designs with a spectrum of colorful game boxes to the most rebel rousing and sensory lifting art of the highest caliber, it’s all showcased this hardcover tome, and then some.

Ash vs Evil Dead
Episode 2.9 “Home Again”
Directed by Rick Jacobson
Written by Jennifer Ames & Steve Turner
Created by Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, Tom Spezialy
Starring Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, Lucy Lawless, Samara Weaving, Indiana Evans, Ido Drent, Rebekkah Farrell, Joel Tobeck
Starz
Air date: Sunday, December 4, 2016

Spoilers below for Ash vs Evil Dead

Last week on Ash vs Evil Dead: It’s hard to even type this… but Pablo (Ray Santiago) is dead. After Ash (Bruce Campbell) played Baal by acting all psycho-slasher last week, Pablo used the power of the Necronomicon that was inside him to banish Baal (Joel Tobeck) once and for all. But not before Baal let loose one last swipe with his raptor-like talon, slicing poor Pablo in half. I nearly cried at everyone’s reaction, especially Kelly (Dana DeLorenzo) who went through another hellish episode. The range of emotions was crazy as she killed a teenage girl demon, confessed that killing to the girl’s mother, fought off the perverted puppet of Ashy Slashy, before having to watch her bestie and fellow Ghostbeater die a hero. I don’t know what AvED can do to top that episode, and frankly, I’m scared to find out how they try.

SPOILERS for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Last week on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, holistic detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his sidekick Todd (Elijah Wood) ended up in the clutches of the nefarious Gordon Rimmer (Aaron Douglas) and his drones. But by episode’s end, the duo appeared to be on the verge of escaping via a time machine! Todd’s sister Amanda (Hannah Marks) was furious with him for lying about having had Pararibulitis, a debilitating genetic disorder she’s currently suffering from, so she left with The Rowdy 3. It’s unclear where Farah (Jade Eshete) was after being knocked out by the droned Agent Weedle (David Lewis). Detective Estevez (Neil Brown, Jr.) figured out that Lydia’s soul had been swapped with Gordon’s corgi Rapunzel (Bentley the dog). Holistic assassin Bartine (Fiona Dourif) and her sidekick Ken (Mpho Koaho) decided to try to find Dirk Gently again, but not try to kill him next time.

Here’s a recap of what happened this week on Episode 1.7 “Fix Everything”…

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s episode of The Walking Dead was mainly about Tara and her altercation with the women of Oceanside, who had gone into hiding after their men were all killed by Negan. We also saw Rick and Aaron heading out of Alexandria to scavenge for Negan, but it seemed that Michonne wasn’t exactly on board with it all. Meanwhile, Carl and Enid travelled to the Hilltop Colony, so Enid could visit with Maggie, but Carl then went his own way… stowing away in a truck that was headed to Negan’s Sanctuary. Hilltop’s Jesus also showed up on the cargo truck with similar intentions.

This week, on Episode 7.7 “Sing Me A Song,” we find out what happened when the cargo truck arrives back at the Sanctuary; what’s going on with Rick and Aaron on their desperate scavenge; where Michonne is going; how Spence really feels and what he’s actually capable of; and what Rosita and Eugene are up to. Oh, and lots more Negan stuff.

Movie Review: Jackie
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Jackie starring Natalie Portman

Jackie
Director: Pablo Larraín
Screenwriter: Noah Oppenheim
Cast: Natalie Portman, Greta Gerwig, Peter Sarsgaard, Max Casella, Beth Grant, Billy Crudup, Richard E. Grant, John Hurt
Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rated R | 99 minutes
Release Date: December 2, 2016

Contemporary biopics no longer adhere to the traditional means of telling the entire life story of a subject. Nowadays, audiences are only given a small fraction of it. But it is in that stage of life that truly defines the subject. In Jackie, we see Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy at her most vulnerable point in life, where she has to deal with the grief of losing her husband, the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. The traumatic event would be enough to shatter anyone, but it is what she does in the aftermath that will truly cement her name among the greatest of First Ladies. With a strong script from Noah Oppenheim and director Pablo Larrin giving an outsider’s perspective on the matter, Jackie is hauntingly poetic view of an untold story. My full review below.

TV Review: Incorporated 1.1 “Vertical Mobility”
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Incorporated 101--01

Incorporated
Season 1 Episode 1: “Vertical Mobility”
Written & Directed by David Pastor, Àlex Pastor
Starring Sean Teale, Allison Miller, Eddie Ramos, Julia Ormond, Dennis Haysbert, Damon Herriman
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, November 30th, 2016, 10:00pm

Incorporated made its debut last night on SyFy, and perhaps right in time for President-Elect Trump. The show is based in the year 2074 and corporations govern all… freaky right? The series is executively produced by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Jennifer Todd, and created, written and directed by the Pastor Brothers (Alex and David). They co-wrote the 2015 film Self/less starring Ryan Reynolds, and wrote and directed the underrated and underseen 2009 plague film, Carriers. As we learn in the opening crawl, the world was destroyed thanks to global warming (you hear that PE Trump!), and now the corporations rule, secretly battling over Earth’s dwindling resources. Humanity is divided into zones. Green is good for those working for one of these corporations. Red is for the rest of us.

Spoilers below for the premiere of Incorporated!

FOX
Air Date: Tuesday, November 29, 2016, 9pm

Spoilers for Scream Queens

Last week, we found out the identity of The Green Meanie… well at least one of the Meanies. Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) confessed to psycho nurse administrator Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley). She was already on her own crusade to kill the Chanels for the murder of her sister, the cook back in season 1. Meanwhile, Chanel (Emma Roberts) won the hospital blood drive and Hoffel’s trip to Blood Island and plans on consummating her relationship with Dr. Brock Holt (John Stamos) very soon. In a hilarious twist, Cascade framed Holt as the “baby in the belly”… leaving 53-year-old Stamos being accused of crimes of the 30 year old. He is of course flattered at first until he realizes they’re serious.

More below for this week’s Scream Queens
