In this podcast, Matt and Khemit use the comic book Saga as a backdrop to discuss writer Brian K Vaughn, his various works, and the state of the comic book industry as a whole. Seasoned throughout with delicious tangents, you will also find the usual candid reflections on, and solid recommendations of other stories and...

This is the inaugural FYMPCAST, in which Khemit and Matt discuss their reasons for creating the cast, introduce themselves and their approach to stories and fiction, and attempt to lay the groundwork for what will be an unprecedentedly badass delivery system for all of the heretofore useless yet ridiculously robust wealth of knowledge on the...

If you want to get your eyes raped, go watch Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In a not unpredictable maneuver, Marvel is attempting to capitalize on their big screen success by expanding their media empire onto the small screen. In this case by taking a passé organization from the Marvel Comic universe, S.H.I.E.L.D., and creating a...

Sci-Fi for the Win

Science fiction has never been easy to pull off in movies.  In some ways it is harder than fantasy.  While often wondrous to the point of the absurd, its roots are usually firmly grounded in the physics and reality we know and love(?).  I make a distinction between the venerable histories which include The Day...

Well let’s get right into it, shall we? In the world of sitcoms, only one show has ever managed to cross the uncanny valley that bridges shows with laugh tracks and shows with truly humorous content.

I Want my FYMTV, Pt 2

Refocusing on the FYMPlanet mission is probably in order here: the goal is not just to slam mediocre shows or to try to shame people into not watching their favorite guilty pleasure....

Don’t Watch: Dexter

So now that we’ve established that The Walking Dead is crap, let’s move on to another fan favorite. Dexter, since its 2006 inception, has been breaking Showtime records and entertaining millions of underdeveloped minds with its anticlimactic progression and willfully stagnant main character. Let’s explore some of the elements that make this show not worth...

Don’t Watch: The Walking Dead

*Can they be called spoilers if the show is already rotten? If so, they’re ahead* The Walking Dead is a profoundly mediocre show. It’s greatest strength is that it manages to keep otherwise rational people watching it, long after it has proven itself not worth their time. Commenter Nial said it best in his comment...

I Want my FYMTV

I won’t say that TV is getting better. Thanks to the spew of reality TV programming that dominates much of the airwaves these days, TV is more likely, on average, getting worse. However, the number of very good shows, while not quite balancing out all the crap, IS growing at an unprecedented rate. A discerning...
