Stranger Things on Netflix
Written by Steve Dowling on 2016-07-27
Stranger Things on Netflix is a great show through the three episodes that I have watched. It is very similar to the X-FILES, and although it may not have David Duchovny, the strong writing makes the show a must watch.
The show is about a kid that is abducted and goes missing. The town goes on a search for him, and all sorts of great science fiction stuff happens in between. It is set in the 1980s,...(Read More)

The Call Starts Well, Finishes Slowly
Written by Steve Dowling on 2013-10-26
The Call, staring Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin is a very solid movie overall, but has some significant flaws, especially toward the ending. I will try to leave spoilers out of this article, but a few may pop up.
Berry is a veteran 911 operator, who makes a mistake on a call early in the show, causing the girl to die. This call haunts her for a while, but she comes back months later and takes...(Read More)
House of Cards On Netflix
Written by Steve Dowling on 2013-10-19
I have started watching House of Cards with Kevin Spacey on Netflix and I am definitely enjoying it. While I don't think it is the greatest show, it is definitely one worth watching. While I would not suggest watching it if you don't like politics, there is definitely something there people who want to see a good political drama.
Spacey plays a congressman from South Carolina, Frank Underwood....(Read More)
Season 3 Of American Horror Story
Written by Steve Dowling on 2013-10-11
I enjoyed the first episode of American Horry Story: Coven. It will clearly be a season about witchcraft and features Kathy Bates and Jessica Lange as the bad witches. Many of the actors from prior seasons are in this season as well. It airs Wednesday nights on FX....(Read More)
Game Of Thrones: Such An Overrated Show
Written by Steve Dowling on 2013-04-11
Game of Thrones on HBO is quite possibly the most overrated show on television. It is not a bad show at all. In fact, it is very good. However, for it to be classified as one of the top shows on television is ludicrous. The show is just entering season 3.
It is a very hit or miss show. While shows like Dexter, Homeland, Law and Order SVU and Mad Men are all entertaining every episode, Game of Thrones...(Read More)
Californication Season 5
Written by Steve Dowling on 2013-01-14
I just finished season 5 of Californication during the free preview of Showtime. It was a surprisingly entertaining season. I feel bad for Hank Moody, as whenever things seem to be going well toward Kieryn and Becca, something always happens to him.
While sometimes the writing can get a little crazy on the show, season 5 was definitely good enough to make me want to watch season 6, which just recently...(Read More)
American Horror Story Keeps Getting Better
Written by Steve Dowling on 2012-11-19
American Horror Story on FX keeps getting better and better. James Cromwell and Jessica Lange are terrific in the show. The writing is fantastic and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. The ending of the last episode is making me really excited to see what will happen in the next episode.
The show airs Wednesday at 10pm on FX for anyone who does not know....(Read More)
Bourne Legacy a Hit!
Written by Katie Luce on 2012-10-25
I recently saw the 4th movie in the Bourne series. The Bourne Legacy was just as good, if not better than the rest. Many were skeptical and unsure of how it would be, including myself, because Matt Damon was not in it, but Jeremy Renner did an amazing job playing "Aaron Cross".
With a perfect amount of action & suspense in this movie, there was also the usual thinking that Bourne movies require,...(Read More)
