Supernatural – Blood Brother

November 4, 2012 // 0 Comments

In a flashback heavy but overall strong episode, Dean briefly leaves Sam to go help his newfound vampire friend Benny after he is badly injured fighting some members of his old nest. Dean and Benny then go off to hunt down and kill Benny’s maker who heads up a group of swashbuckling vampire-pirates that Dean jokingly monikers “vampirates”. Meanwhile, Sam continues to look for Kevin and his mother while reminiscing about his time spent when Dean was in Purgatory. I have a ...Click for More

Midwest Mark’s Video of the Week

November 2, 2012 // 0 Comments

This week, I bring you some classic SUPERNATURAL and arguably one of the best moments in the whole series.  It’s from the Season 5 finale where Sam finally agrees to be Lucifer’s vessel and he meets Michael in a field to battle for Armageddon.  Dean pulls up in the Impala rocking some Def Leppard and gets out to do whatever he can to stop the ...Click for More

Happy Halloween!

Not every MWTVG despises Halloween, and in fact it is one of my favorite holidays overall.  I like the weather, I like the falling leaves, I like the smell of fires in the distance and I like dressing up like something crazy and running around with my kids as they go trick or treating.  And I like eating all the Milky Ways before anybody else can.  And it seems like I am one of the only adults that still likes wearing a costume… which is relatively unfortunate.  Whether unfortunate ...Click for More

Watch TV… Burn Calories??

Disclaimer:  MWTVG claims no responsibility for the beer and/or chips spilled on your keyboard from reading the aforementioned headline. In all seriousness, I stumbled upon an article in The Guardian (because the only legitimate news source on this side of the pond anymore is found here) which cites a study done by scientists at The University of Westminster that essentially says you can burn calories by watching horror movies.  Any horror flick that has frequent “jump ...Click for More

Supernatural – Bitten

October 26, 2012 // 3 Comments

Here at MWTVG, we are merely regular guys with simple needs… usually consisting of a remote control, a good show to watch, snacks, and relative silence.  So with my wife needing to take a final for her masters class last night, I had plenty of time to catch up on the previous night’s DVRing.  And just in time to conveniently slip out stage left when she said “can you turn on GREY’S ANATOMY?”  And just before I was about to start ARROW.  I claim total victory. ...Click for More

In an effort to bring heavy-hitting, timely and relevant journalism to the front pages of MWTVG, I have thus far overlooked one show that ought to be held in the annals of history as one of the finest specimens of television filmmaking… I would of course be talking about SUPERNATURAL. Which is a shameful omission because of how much I love this show.  Now I’m not going to come at you with a review of this week’s episode right now because a) I haven’t sat down to watch ...Click for More

ARROW, and/or The Problem with CW in General

October 21, 2012 // 0 Comments

So I will admit up front that I have not yet watched the second episode of ARROW, nor am I particularly looking forward to it. But ‘taking one for the team’ is a significant part of the mission statement of MWTVG and removing it from my DVR takes too much effort. I really wanted to like the series premiere, but it teetered precariously between wanting to be awesome and crumbling away into a foaming sea of Deschanel. (see what I did there?) Taking a quick inventory of the moving ...Click for More
