In Ice Cold Blood (Oxygen)

Before finding my new guilty pleasure The Wonderland Murders, I had been watching In Ice Cold Blood narrated by SVU's own Ice-T. As a fan of true crime shows I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to check out this dark spin on this documentary format and wasn't impressed with the stand alone episodes. Don't...

Roseanne v. María

The world of entertainment and politics collided this week as a racist tweet ended Roseanne Barr's eponymous show on ABC.

These one hour documentaries aren't trying to solve a crime but rather show the humanity of the victims and their loved ones, who faced the cruel reality of waiting years,... Continue Reading →

seaQuest DSV (NBC)

If you ever wondered about what things hardcore nerds treasure is cult classic shows. Although Netflix and other sources aren't blasting that they have the episodes of this undersea drama, my hope is that they bring them back soon.
