I Was Admitted to General Hospital for an Exclusive Set Visit

Looking back to my childhood years, I remember coming home from school to find my mom and sister glued to the TV as the latest episode of ABC's General Hospital aired. Who knew just a few decades later I'd be walking on the very sets that they were mesmerized by. Yep, I recently had a trip to the hospital while I was out on a #HanSoloEvent Blogger Trip in Los Angeles, California. No, not that kind of hospital. This one was more general, as in General Hospital. Yes, I actually visited the set of this insanely popular soap opera that's celebrating 55 years on television. Oddly enough, this wasn't my first trip ...

ABC’s Deception Casts a Magical Spell on Traditional Crime Dramas

Some of my favorite childhood memories involve joining my dad in Manhattan for work. Every once in awhile he'd either have a day off or it'd be a weekend and the two of us would head into the Big Apple. I'd play with things on his desk (nothing like a good pair of scissors!) or the copy machine down the hall. But the best part of the day was easily the magic shop. I loved performing magic tricks and my dad loved taking me to the magic shop near his office. The coolest, most entertaining salesmen in the world have to be people who work at magic shops. They just love ...

Leave it to Netflix to Come Up with Birthdays On-Demand

I am so spoiled with Movies On-Demand these days, that I pretty much expect instant access to any movie or TV show ever made at any point. It's just crazy convenient. But have you ever thought about Birthdays On-Demand? Yeah, as a parent, I can most definitely appreciate anything that will help make birthdays for my kids that much easier and more special for them. I remember birthday parties when I was a kid. I didn't go to the movies, take everyone bowling or even have a pool party. Nope. What we did was just have a lot of fun around my house. Mom would create a ton of games for us ...

Marvel’s Inhumans is Literally Out of This World – And There’s a Teleporting Dog!

LOCKJAW, ANSON MOUNT (Black Bolt) When Arnim Zola showed up as a series of computer screens in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I thought there was absolutely no way on Earth that Marvel could top themselves with crazy, obscure, bizarre characters making it to the mainstream. Now that I've seen previews of Inhumans, I stand corrected. Lockjaw, a giant, teleporting dog, is making his way to the small screen this month! Continuing its entertainment domination with major motion pictures, Netflix runaway hits like The Defenders and ABC TV's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel shows no signs of slowing down. Kicking off on September 29 on ABC, get ready for Marvel's Inhumans. These guys ...

Netflix’s Marvel Shows Aren’t Just for Superhero Fans (or How to Get Your Friends to Binge Watch The Defenders)

My name is Andrew and I am a comic book geek. That means that even if Marvel puts out the craziest movies and TV shows based on obscure characters like Ant-Man or Iron Fist, I'm first in line. And when Netflix's amazing set of characters team up in a new series called The Defenders, I'm screaming from the rooftops. Yeah, The Defenders. Sounds like a cheap version of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, a.k.a. The Avengers. To be honest, they kind of are. I've never been a diehard Defenders fan but always dug them when they showed up in other comics. The Avengers were the A-List team, headquartered in NYC and fighting Earth-shattering foes. The ...
