Your New Christmas Tradition: Anna and the Apocalypse

Anna and the Apocalypse


They've finally invented it...a cure for those holiday blues. Just imagine..the constant struggle for cash to pay your bills...the annoying questions from friends and family as to why you've not married and reproduced yet...all your societal responsibilities...gone..in a flash....or rather in a bite! When you think about it, a zombie apocalypse isn't really the worst thing that could happen to us. The creators of Anna and the Apocalypse seem to agree with this theory, and made it Christmassy....and added music!

ABC Picks up Agents of SHIELD for 7th Season

ABC renews Marvel's Agents of SHIELD for 7th Season
When last I visited with the Son of Coul, he and his merry band of ass kickers had just defeated an evil life model decoy hell bent on creating a virtual reality where HYDRA won and..well..everyone else lost. At least I think that's what was happening. It's been a while. After that, there was some bit where they were in the future in space and everything played like a so-so Syfy Channel ongoing series circa 2013. They had the crummy dystopian fashion sense, the depressing story line and, from week to week, I really couldn't figure out where they were going...so I bailed. Granted...I have a very short attention span. I've yet to make it all the way through the Batman movie where Poison Ivy chews up the screen and Bane looks like he's had a bad reaction to bee stings..like..all over....but maybe that's for the best. At any rate, it seems Agents of SHIELD marches on...and I have some catching up to do. FIRE UP MY NETFLIX!!
