Pop Capsule: VH1’s Celebreality

It is rare when we can define one era of television by name alone. In many ways, applying a gimmick to a standard line-up can be positive. Look at TGIF for ABC. That line-up took place every Friday night on ABC for most of the 90’s, and consisted of some of the most beloved television shows that an entire generation reference as a golden era of growing up. The same can be said about Toonami, which...

Pop Capsule: 2Gether

Sometimes, you can just be sitting, performing some mundane activity, when you all of the sudden remember something awesome about your past. A breath of nostalgia takes over your lungs and for a second, you are in a different time entirely, savoring a feeling of bliss before hopping back into the sad reality of the present. About two weeks ago, I had this wave, but it has not stopped for a moment ...

The Return of Roseanne

Sorry if you were expecting a misleading, sensationalized headline that would pull you in more, but there is a reason for that and we will touch up on it in a moment. First, we need to go back a bit.

Horror movies have always gave us a reason to be afraid, but allowed us as the audience to cont...

Pop Capsule: The Teen Years of Television

It seems like everyone who is 25 or older looks back and sees their teenage years as the best time of their entire lives. Now, that doesn’t include everyone – but the majority of us reflect on our teen years as the most worry-free and least troubling period of our lives as a whole. As a typical teen, you don’t have bills, serious jobs, or serious stress, as your biggest worry is some quick relatio...

Pop Capsule: Sitcoms that Ended Right

No matter what your perception is of the world, one thing we all seem to agree on is that no one truly wants any good thing to end. In the video game universe, controller connoisseurs cried foul quickly regarding the last stage of Mass Effect, which in my opinion is the most realized story that had ever graced a console at the time. Who can forget the controversy where millions of fans sent hate a...
