Last year I got all excited about the Syfy channel turning one of my favorite book series into a TV show. I got even more excited when it became clear how much money they were throwing at it. The trailer, too, looked amazing.

So now we’ve had all 10 episodes of the first season of The Expanse. The fact that it got a second season before the first one even aired notwithstanding… how is it?

(Don’t worry, no spoilers)

It’s been nearly two months, and if you haven’t seen it, I have to assume you don’t want to. Cool, have fun with that. You’ve probably skipped past this post anyway.

But if you’re still here, I have some thoughts about Episode VII that I want to talk about and I figure it's been enough time not to spoil anything... even though there are no spoilers here (I don't think).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear about humanity’s loss of one of the greats: David Bowie.

What surprised me, though perhaps it shouldn’t have, was how many people I know were upset. What was fascinating was what song or lyric they used to commemorate the man and his music. It says a lot about an artist when it isn’t a single song, album, era, or even genre that is quoted to represent their body of work.

So let’s celebrate the talent and catalog of one of the greatest artists ever.

Here, I’ll start...

It’s that time of year to make resolutions. How about for this year, we aim to be better A/V enthusiasts and put some of last year’s exclusionary nastiness behind us.

Here’s what I mean.

One of the fun parts of this job is that we get to check out all sorts of weird and wonderful gear. Most of the time, things that seem crazy, are crazy. But every so often, something crazy is actually crazy good. These are the things that fit into that latter category.

So here are the top gifts we’d love to give this holiday season… if we only knew someone who we could give them to.

Everyone expected the latest entry in the legendary Fallout series to be big. Perhaps not dip-in-Pornhub-traffic big.

I wasn’t a big fan of 3 to be honest. I got bored quickly, not least from the brown-on-brown aesthetic.

I wasn’t even planning on getting 4 until I saw the trailer. OK, it looked pretty awesome. And blowing up irradiated monsters in my old home town had to be at least a little fun. Right?

There is no studio in the history of cinema that has a track record like Pixar. Nearly every one of their movies is at least great, most are awesome, and very few are below average (ahem, Cars 2).

I got to see a sneak preview early this week at the gorgeous El Capitan in Hollywood. Here are some thoughts on both those things.

There was no game releasing in 2015 I was more excited about than Star Wars Battlefront. The trailers looked amazing, it was built on a solid and known engine, and really, how do you screw up a Star Wars game where you get to attack AT-ATs on Hoth?

There’s a new Star Trek TV series in the works, set to debut in 2017. As a huge Star Trek fan I am really, really excited.

But it’s probably going to suck. Here’s why.

The Martian was one of the best movies I saw this year.

This was despite being one of the worst cinema experiences I’ve ever had.
