Here’s some actual good news: Wynona Earp is coming back … at least for one movie sometime this year. Way back in 2016 – jeez, was it really that long ago? -- SyFy was heavy into the vampire thing for obvious reasons … and in the midst of it they premiered this...

Oh No Ross & Carrie: the podcast that debunks all the silly stuff out there, so you don’t have to..

Do you remember The Amazing Randi? No? You should. James Randi was an amazing sleight-of-hand magician and illusionist, who was also a world-class, lifelong skeptic, like Harry Houdini before him. A guy who knows more than almost anybody on earth about how to create...

This Wretched Valley: survival horror with great promise … and something missing

I just finished Jenny Kiefer’s This Wretched Valley, by first-time novelist Jenny Kiefer … and I almost liked it. But there was something missing… and I wonder if anyone else felt it, too. You remember the podcast, Talking Scared, that I reviewed a while back? They...

Henry Thomas and the sequel to E.T. (no, really)
