Good Actors Play a Bad One Lemony Snicket introduces Count Olaf with the following quote: “The dreadful villainy of this vile fiend has haunted me since I first met him as a young man. And every night, as I continue to work on the Baudelaire case, I find myself weeping, thinking of his utter wickedness […]

Prequels Are Fascinating In almost every one, we find the hidden history brings a new light and dimension to old established characters. Writers and actors call this “backstory” when they look at an individual character. They are the story before the story. Most of the time, prequels exist to answer questions. Why did he do that? […]

As Constantin Stanislavski famously remarked: “There are no small parts, only small actors.” He could have been referring to Miguel Ferrer, one of the finest character actors of his generation. Ferrer died January 19th following a battle with esophageal cancer.   (Left to Right) Miguel Ferrer, Kyle MacLachlan, David Lynch & David Bowie on the set […]

Last night was the hotly-anticipated premiere of Fast N’ Loud‘s new season… but it failed to deliver on one key tease. As Echoba.se’s resident petrolhead, I get my Top Gear fix in the off-season with Discovery Channel’s awesome TV show Fast N’ Loud. I’ve written about it extensively before; and since we’ve spent time defending […]

Netflix debuted A Series of Unfortunate Events on Friday – and it’s sublime. I’m not much of one for binge-watching, but with the whole family being sick, we all curled up on the couch this weekend and watched the entirety of Netflix’s new original show A Series of Unfortunate Events. Based on the beloved books […]

The Walking Dead S7E8 Review: “Hearts Still Beating”

Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, if you have, well then come on in. TWD ended its midseason run with (another) 90 minute episode. At this point it’s unusual for the show to only be 60 minutes, including commercials.  The bloated run-time is likely a side-effect of the expansive […]

It’s been almost 4 years since How I Met Your Mother aired it’s final episode and the fate of the gang, including the titular mother was revealed. I was visiting my sister today when that final episode was on and we chatted while it played in the background. As the final credits rolled and pictures […]

The Walking Dead S7E7 Review: Sing Me a Song

Warning: Spoiler Alert! Turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.   So I guess Carl is Negan’s apprentice now (and I mean that in the Star Wars sense). What we saw take shape this week was basically the missing Obi Won (Rick) and the present Vader (Negan) vying to […]

Warning: Spoiler Alert! turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.     Well, sand walkers were cool. It was also nice to see some beach terrain in TWD (sorry Fear the Walking Dead, I don’t count you). A colony of ultra-cautious women? Neat idea. Tara being dropped into it?  Okay, […]
