“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright

Mysterious dome-shaped force-field thingy traps small, hick town. Not as atrocious, or as good as some of Stephen King’s other screen adaptations. A bit long-winded too, like much of his writing of late, but thankfully not too soapy. Apparently renewed … Continue reading
Danny Desai (Avan Jogia) gets out of juvey after serving time for strangling his aunt. Did he? Didn’t he? And why? It’s a harder, nastier Veronica Mars from ABC Family (talk about new look!) Fairly okay as teeny-bopper fare, but … Continue reading
Blood-spatter analyst and serial-killer Dexter Morgan approaches the end of his long eight season jaunt. Will he get away with it and follow his fellow fictional mass murderer, Hannibal Lector, to an idyllic life in Argentina? What IS it about … Continue reading
Science teacher goes to the dark-side and starts cooking crystal-meth. I’m going to miss this one. As repellent as Walter White’s morality has become, the man himself is undeniably a fascinating and enthralling screen presence. Bryan Cranston, you are a … Continue reading
The improbably tall David Bowie fan and the UK’s answer to Dirty Harry, Luther (Idris Elba) is back for a third series. This hit cop drama concerns the investigations of Detective Chief Inspector John Luther, the key man in the … Continue reading
Our beloved police blood-spatter analyst/serial-killer is back. This season, Debs has discovered Dexter’s dirty little secret and it has sent her loopy. The particular incident that sent her barking at the moon involved the death of LaGuerta. Captain LaGuerta was a … Continue reading
Aaron Sorkin is undeniably a brilliant writer, but this show seems a lot like his previous big show, The West Wing, only set in a TV newsroom. Often the dialogue is far too clever for its own good and draws … Continue reading
One-time Yugoslavian Olympic rifle-team buddies, one a Bosnian, the other a Serb, cross bullets in the Bosnian War. I watched this BBC/HBO production years ago and can vouch for its excellence. All the more-so, given that I was in the … Continue reading
Brilliant young Muslim with Aspergers goes on a quest to tell the US president that he is not a terrorist in the wake of a terrible tragedy that occurs to his family in vengeful, post-911 America. I didn’t watch this … Continue reading
And here we have my rant of the week. This movie is about an obnoxious bimbo quartet who, strapped for cash for their Spring break plans, stage a violent robbery. Once down in Florida, they fall under the spell of … Continue reading
One of the reasons I don’t watch tear-jerkers is that I so easily succumb to them. While I can withstand the rigours of quite the nastiest horror films in existence, movies with a high emotional content reduce me to a … Continue reading
An archaeological volunteer, killing time in France while waiting to find out about an inheritance, finds a ring that sends her mind spiraling through time and becoming entangled in the life of a woman living in the Middle-Ages. This sounds … Continue reading
I missed it in January and it looks intriguing.
Boys from the Black Stuff – If you’re from the UK and about my age, you’ve probably already seen this powerful BBC drama series. If you’re from another part of the world, you almost certainly haven’t, but as it’s been … Continue reading
