Opinion: 8K TV’s High-Def Scam

When I first heard about 8k TV I was like, cool! Yay! Then I thought, how can the tech industry keep increasing the amount the amount of pixels if the human eye has a set limit? They can’t. 8K–what does it mean? The k in 8k is 1000. That is the amount of pixels on the width of the TV. Increasing that means either increasing the size of your tv or decreasing the size of each pixel. The human eye can’t see that much without moving closer and closer so, 8k TV is a huge scam. It is not worth your money to buy something that has almost no difference unless your screen is enormous or your nose is pressed against it. 4k TV is the max, so spending money on this is just silly. 8k TV actually has no content yet and is still unavailable to the large part…


Simpsons Comic Ends

In the month of October 2018, Bongo comics released Simpsons comic #245 with the caption above the title: “It’s a Simpsons send-off,” confirming that comic #245 was the last.  It was announced at ComicCon International in San Diego that the series would be ending along with the Spongebob comic series taking an “extended break” which leaves questions about Bongo’s future. Few know that the long running TV show The Simpsons had a comic series to go along with it. The comic series was a standalone series with a story having nothing to do with the TV show except for the occasional reference in certain episodes and comics. Despite the cancelation of the comics, the show will not be ending and shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. It is currently in its 30th season. There were rumors that the reason Simpsons comics are ending is because in 2018 Mad magazine…


Daredevil Season 3 Review

Warning: CONTAINS SPOILERS Daredevil is one of the best showS ever to be created. The season has a 93% Rotten Tomatoes score, which is well deserved. This show is part of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), which means it is in the same universe as Spider-Man, Iron Man and basically everyone you see in the Marvel movies. Ok, now that the facts are out of the way, time to get on to the review. So, I just finished Daredevil season 3 and it was a really good show. The entire season is based around the storyline of “Born Again” written by Frank Miller. The writers for the show did change the story from the comic a little bit but it worked out pretty well. Pretty much the biggest part that they changed about it is that they told Karen Page’s backstory like it was at the end of her story. I highly…

Stranger Things: Season 2, Episode 2

Episode two, Trick or Treat Freak, follows four storylines, Eleven’s time in the forest and subsequent meeting with Hopper, Hoppers investigation of the poisoned farms and time with Eleven, Will, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, and Max’s activities during Halloween, and the turmoil between Steve and Nancy over Barbara’s death which reaches its climax during a Halloween Party. It is one of the defining episodes of the series as it introduces some of the important season conflicts. Trick or Treat Freak was one of my favorite episodes in this season and certainly one that has best kept in my thoughts afterwards. It sets up many of the major plot points in the season as well many of the most intriguing character relationships. I think it can certainly be considered an iconic episode of stranger things that perfectly follows up upon the previous episode MADMAX and leads into the following episode The Pollywog….

Asia Kate Dillon and a Theory on Gender-Neutrality

A show aired on the channel Showtime now includes a non-binary character. Taylor Mason, a character on the show Billions, is a gender-neutral character whose pronouns are they, theirs, and them. The actor that plays Taylor, Asia Kate Dillon, also identifies as non-binary. They are the first gender-neutral actor playing a gender-neutral character on television, and not only that, but their performance has put them up for an Emmy nomination submission. Showtime approached Asia and told them that they were going to submit them for an Emmy nomination. The channel asked Asia how they would like to be submitted, as an actor or an actress. Dillon was conflicted about how they would like to be entered, and so wrote a letter to the Emmys in order to sort out exactly what the two categories meant. The Emmys responded saying that any eligible performer may be entered in either category for…


Recap: Sherlock, Season 4

Disclaimer: If you have NOT watched Sherlock yet, please leave and do so. Preferably not in school. Or without parental permission. Or without legal permission. The point is, watch it while being good. Hey, friends! Marcus and Dev here, and we’re gonna spoil everything about the new season of Sherlock! Sherlock is a BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) original series. It’s a spinoff of the original Sherlock Holmes series, including key characters like Mycroft Holmes and the great Moriarity. They cover almost all the original Sherlock Holmes stories, but normally each one comes with a little twist. For instance, “A Study in Scarlet” becomes “A Study in Pink”. “The Hound of the Baskervilles” becomes “The Hounds of Baskerville,” and more. If you’re looking for something new, don’t worry. As I said before, each story follows certain Arthur Doyle guidelines, but with a refreshing twist of story and plot, the latter new…
