Tron, Caprica, Captain America, Zombies and More …

Around the Poconos …

I have no idea where to even start with this after having not posted for almost two weeks, so we’re going with a straight stream of consciousness thing here, whatever I find is what I’m throwing on. Wait, I know where to start with some things I missed — locally. So here goes: Pike County [...]

Back to the Future … Again

Programming note — I’m on vacation next week and most likely won’t be blogging at all. I probably won’t be back until Oct. 26. I’ll try to throw in some Facebook posts or tweets in that time, but I won’t be around to blog. Sorry. Hopefully when I come back the blog will still be [...]

Don’t People Supposedly Like Jimmy Smits?

Sticking with straight links today: If you hear Queen playing the background, it’s because another one is about to bite the dust. NBC’s attempt at getting Jimmy Smits back on the air, the Rockford Files ripoff Outlaw, has shut down production with eight episodes in the can.

But as much as this movie is a commentary on the founding of one of the most popular Internet sites ever, it’s real story vs. the [...]
