DirecTV Drops Chiller TV

If I’m not watching WWE or The Walking Dead my television is always on Chiller TV. Don’t care if it’s a marathon of The X-Files or an heavy edited movie like Beyond Re-Animator I always found joy on that channel.

Two movies that I watched on Chiller and went out and bought was Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis (2005) and Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave (2005). I didn’t even know there was more Return movies after part three. Slasher was a fantastic series Chiller aired in 2016. Lastly the Chiller and Scream Factory original movie, Fender Bender (2016) was a highlight for me when it came to horror movies last year.

Reason I’m writing all this is I found out that DirecTV-AT&T has dropped Chiller TV from their cable packages and or you gotta pay a higher cable package to get the channel back, that’s what the dirt sheets are saying and it’s disappointing. I guess SyFy will be my go to for light night horror at 3 a.m. It’s an end of an era in the Massive One’s household.

Duck Tales And TMNT News

I still love me some cartoons.  I’m sure people walking into my house as I’m sitting there in my gym shorts I use as pajamas, eating a bowl of cereal, and watching my cartoons are amused at why a 37 year old man would watch cartoons.  Hey, I still love the characters and the story telling is top notch.  Doesn’t matter to me that it’s animated.  But it’s time for some Good News/Bad News.

Good News:

The first trailer for the new Duck Tales series for Disney XD is out.  And it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.  Most important is we get to hear David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck for the first time.  And I gotta say I love it.  Perfect casting.

Bad News:
The newest TMNT cg animated show looks like it’s winding down with season 5 only to be replaced with an old school 2d animated version.  I’ve been a big fan of the show when it launched and I thought did a great job of incorporation of TMNT lore while also doing some things to make it all fresh again.  I’m bummed they are leaving this incarnation behind.  My guess would be the voice cast will be getting too expensive after the 5th season so it’s off for another reboot rather than shelling out (hehe see what I did there) for voice actors like Seth Green and Sean Astin to reprise their roles in future seasons.  Who knows.  Guess we’ll wait and see what the new show holds.

TLH Episode 75 – Blade Runner and Equilibrium

Beth Phoenix Into The HOF, Plus Flash And Riverdale

It was announced tonight on Monday Night RAW that Beth Phoenix will be inducted into the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame.

I’ve been hearing rumors of Phoenix going into the Hall for a few months and I was even saying it’s too soon, and I’m a Beth Phoenix fan. Because of her, she made the Divas division worth watching when all you had was three minute squash matches.

If Beth Phoenix was around today she would totally dominate the Divas Revolution Era. If I had to fantasy book her into a match, I’ll put her against Charlotte Flair.


On a few unrelated notes… I’m digging Riverdale. I’ve read a handful of Archie comics in the past and if they were as cool as Riverdale is I may have kept reading them. And yes, I’m in the same boat of people that’s saying Riverdale is a bit like Twin Peaks.

I’m still grinding through Arrow, sometimes it’s to hard to watch. But I been told to stick with it, because they are at least trying to make the series good again.

And then there’s Flash… It hasn’t failed me yet as a series. I’m really into the Killer Frost storyline. Danielle Panabaker is great playing good and evil. I just hope, if she does turn heel she won’t leave the show because she’s an awesome actress.

TLH Episode 74 – Cape Fear and Toolbox Murders 2

This week we discuss two films of master thespian, Edgar Allan Poe IV, Cape Fear and Toolbox Murders 2 (a.k.a. Coffin Baby). Listen along as Bryan almost quits the show several times.

We also discuss Split, The Skeptic, The Ring, The Grudge, Sadako v Kayako, and Westworld.

Hulu Brings The King With Castle Rock Series

WHAT IS GOING ON!!?!??!?  As a certified King nerd imagine my mind exploding on Friday when the below teaser trailer was dropped online by J.J. Abrams company Bad Robot.  Anyone who has listened to me babble about King for years knows I’ve always wished that a cinematic Stephen King universe was a thing but with the rights to his books being spread across multiple big name film studios it was never going to happen.  Well maybe I’m wrong.  Maybe.

They haven’t come right out and said what this is other than it’s a 10 episode series on Hulu that will cover multiple stories across King’s works.  No word on which stories or novels.  The fictional town of Castle Rock was first shown to us constant readers in The Dead Zone and would then go on to be the setting for many of King’s biggest stories.  The Body (Stand By Me), Cujo, The Dark Half, Needful Things, and multiple short stories take place there.  Also such books as Christine, IT, and The Tommyknockers make reference to the town.  So it’s connections are vast.  Until we know more about what this is going to be all we have is the all too short teaser below.  I am beyond excited.

American Horror Story To Tackle Trump

Never one to shy away from controversy, American Horror Story producer Ryan Murphy has announced that the next season of the beloved anthology series will take it’s cues from this years election.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Murphy let it spill that this season will be getting a tad political. When pressed if there will be a trump-esque character on the show, Murphy gave a very Trump like “Maybe”

Supergirl Gets Hitched And Flash Attacks Gorilla City Next Week

Next week we’ll be seeing a few awesome super villains showing up in the CW DCverse.  First up on Supergirl that trixter from the 5th dimension Mr. Mxyzptlk shows up wreck havoc.  Turns out he has a little bit of a crush on Kara and even tries to get her to marry him.

And while not a NEW villain on Flash we finally not only get the return of Grodd but the reveal of Gorilla City.  In a two part story we’ll see the Flash team head to another earth looking for the Earth 2 Harrison Wells and end up facing down this classic mind reading foe.

I’m usually pretty stoked to watch these shows anyway but with these stories coming up I’m pretty excited.  Can’t wait to see what they bring.

Bill Nye Is Here To Save The World

With everything going on in the world such as Alternative Facts, made up terrorist attacks, and what seems to be a dismissal of scientific facts it’s nice to see that Bill Nye is here to save us all.  Learn how science works, how it factors into our daily lives, and how we can hopefully save the world.  It’s nice to know we can trust in Bill Nye to not let knowledge be left out of society.

From Netflix:
Bill Nye – science guy, educator, mechanical engineer, and curator of curiosity – returns with a new show. Each episode of Bill Nye Saves the World tackles a specific topic or concept through lively panel discussions, wide-ranging correspondent reports from a crackerjack team, and Bill’s very special blend of lab procedure and sly personality.

Bill Nye Saves The World arrives April 21, only on Netflix.

TLH Episode 72 – Blair Witch and Evil Dead

Santa Clarita Diet – A Preliminary Review

Jesus-Jumped-Up-Joseph, Netflix! When the hell did you start going so right?

I admit that I bounce my subscriptions between Netflix and Hulu depending on the TV season, but with Netflix’s newest marathon-able sitcom, Santa Clarita Diet, it has earned a full time sub from me.

If you have been living under a rock, Santa Clarita Diet is the new Drew Barrymore half hour sitcom vehicle, but with a horror twist, and unlike Ash Vs Evil Dead, which, yes is very funny, Diet takes is subject matter with total heart, and human hearts.

Drew Barrymore stars as Sheila Hammond, a real estate agent who works along side her husband Joel (Timothy Olyphant). One morning she wakes up dead, only to find out that, like a zombie is want to do, craves raw, human flesh. Olyphant is her doting husband who tries to desperately to keep his suburban life as normal as possible while dealing with the fact that he and his wife must now start killing people to keep her fed.

As this is a prelim review, I am only up to episode 4 of the season, which is still early in the process but I have to say this. When it comes to comedy, im a silent laugher. Im a smiler, a chuckler and Santa Clarita Diet has had me laughing hysterically during each episode.

Barrymore is amazing as she begins to accept her new lifestyle contrasted with Olyphant’s put upon, neurotic husband who is trying desperately to control his wife’s impulses while being the supportive and loving husband and father.

And with a revolving cast of supporting characters and cameos, both love-able and despise-able, this is one of the best acted and tonally perfected shows I have seen outside of the Marvel/DC TV shows in a good long while. Netflix, you’ve scored a new winner!

 

The Challenge Invasion: Super Teaser

Did the last Challenge video leave you wanting for me? Well then good news, since we’ve now got a longer look at this season’s Invasion.

As expected, we have the Underdogs arriving first, with the Champions joining them later to show them how the game is really played. As one of the oldest fans of The Challenge ever, I was looking for Shane in this trailer. I think the only shot of Shane is him vomiting all over, but since we could only see the top of his head, I can’t even be sure that was him. I hope he performs well. I would love to see some old Challenge guys return to the scene.

The Challenge Invasion premieres February 7th, so mark those calendars.

TLH Episode 70 – The Burning and Troll

Time for our second match up in the 90s bracket. This week, it’s Seinfeld vs Seinfeld with The Burning, starring Jason Alexander and Troll starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. We also discuss The Trail of Dracula, Midnight Special, De Palma, Deadly Friend, Hannibal, and Harry and the Hendersons.

Star Wars Rebels Brings Fan Favorite Legends Story Into Official Lore

Oh Star Wars: Rebels, you really are winning my heart. After a jump-out-of-your-seat appearance by Grand Admiral Thrawn from Timothy Zahns trilogy of Star Wars Books known as the Thrawn Trilogy, more lore from Star Wars past is now official canon once again.

Zahn’s popular trilogy of books launched a line of over 100 canonical books that expanded on the universe created by George Lucas and with Rebels introducing one of the most memorable characters, Grand Admiral Thrawn, into the official canon, we wouldn’t have to wait long before Disney started to bring in more of the beloved stories into this new expanded universe.

In episode 13 of this season (season 3), comic.com noticed that an ancient conflict known as the Mandalorian War was quickly slipped in under our radar when Kanan Jarrus drops the bomb saying that “History lesson: The Jedi won the war with Mandalore,” bringing the bloody war first introduced in Bioware’s epic Knight of the Old Republic video games into Disney’s fold and of course that also could potentially bring Darth Revan who, spoilers mind you, gave gamers one of the biggest twist endings since The Sixth Sense.

Now, Revan isn’t officially official yet, but the mere mention of the Mandalorian War brings all kinds of possibilities to the table for expansion of dozens of stories and characters from the much beloved Legens universe back into the Star Wars family but giving Disney the freedom from being restrained by all that lore.

TLH Episode 69 – Cujo and Embrace of the Vampire
