“Somewhere along the line I am going to meet with an arm of this octopus, and when I do it will lead me to a head, and when I find that I shall cut it off.” — John Drake in “You Are Not in Any Trouble, Are You?” (1965)

I recently watched the 1960s English television series Danger Man (1960–1962, 30 mins.; 1964–1968, 1 hour) starring Patrick McGoohan. It was a popular spy show that made McGoohan a star and enabled him to produce his cult television series The Prisoner (UK, 1967–1968). Read more …

Counter-Currents Valentine’s Day Special
The Vermont Teddy Bear is a Giant Phallus

bhl_largeImage_2_201301141,650 words

I do this now and then, with the same sort of feeling I get when I pass a roadside accident and, against my better judgment, turn briefly to glimpse the carnage. It was around 10:30, so the execrable Sean Hannity was on. After a minute or so of the usual Obamacare coverage they went to a commercial. It was then that I received the revelation, and my life changed forever.

Firefly

firefly1,244 words

Joss Whedon’s Firefly is a science fiction series that lived and died on the Fox Network in the Fall of 2002. Fourteen episosdes were shot, but only eleven were aired before the series was canceled, to the consternation of the surprisingly large number of loyal fans that the show conjured up in the split second of its existence. In my view, Firefly is one of the best sci-fi shows ever, second only to Battlestar Galactica Read more …

Juego de Tronos, Primera Temporada

game-of-thrones-poster3,926 words

English original here

Anthony Swofford escribió en la película Jarhead (El Infierno Espera) que es imposible hacer una película contra la guerra. Incluso una película como Full Metal Jacket, que se burla del Cuerpo de Marines de los Estados Unidos y sus valores, ha sido defendida por la misma gente que son despreciadas, como con R. Lee Emery al que le dieron una promoción posterior a su jubilación por el Comandante por las referencias a la película citada y por los mismos instructores partidarios de la película que los desprecia.
