The Future Will Be Carpeted: An Analysis of ‘Deep Space Nine (S2E11)’ “In the end, it all comes down to luck.”
     -- Cos

This is my third time through the entire series of DS9, not counting the innumerable instances I’ve caught full or partial episodes on TV or cued up one of my favorites from the collection. I have a pretty good idea of the contents of an episode before I screen it for review. Sometimes, it’s down to only the basic skeleton of the plot, but there’s always something. Which is what made this week’s episode, “Rivals,” so weird. I couldn’t remember a single thing. Oh, I had a vague image of Chris Sarandon -- that’s Prince Humperdink -- standing at a doorway with lights, but that’s all. It was like the episode had abducted me like a UFO, and I was going to wake up with bits of latinum in my skin.
FBC ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ Debriefing - Season 2, Episodes 1 and 2 The Fanboy Comics crew discuss their reactions to the beginning of Season Two of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the new direction and tone of the series, and what lies ahead as the fallout of HYDRA's infiltration continues. Enjoy an audio commentary on the episodes "Shadows" and "Heavy is the Head" by FBC President Bryant Dillon and FBC Contributor Tony Caballero.


MINOR SPOILERS
‘The Undoubtables:’ Graphic Novel Review In a film version of The Undoubtables, the main character would be played by George Clooney. The official synopsis calls it “Ocean’s 11 meets Payback,” but, honestly, it’s more like Ocean’s 11 meets Out of Sight, making it a double dose of Clooney-esque criminal style.
‘The Art of the Book of Life:’ Advance Hardcover Review Magical. Transcendent. Inspired. It is difficult to capture in words what turning the pages of The Art of the Book of Life was like for me. Those who know me well know I am rarely at a loss for words; however, this book left me silent . . . just absorbing. I truly believe people come into your life at different times for a purpose. The Art of the Book of Life came into my life at just the right time, and, low and behold, I was lucky enough to be swept into a treasure trove of artistry, a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the making of the upcoming animated film, The Book of Life, with a forward from none other than Guillermo del Torro, the film's producer!
