Check Out This Ducktales Theme Song Done Acapella
It’s different, that much is obvious, and it’s well done as well. But somehow I think I’d still prefer the actual Ducktales them as it’s written and performed for the show. But one thing kind of confuses me that I can’t believe I’ve never really heard until now. Maybe it’s because the acapella version brings it out a little better, but when the theme says “grab onto some duck tales”, doesn’t that seem a little odd? I’m not going to go into any type of sexual harassment rant if you’re concerned about that, the phrase just struck me funny and

Once Upon A Time Review: “Forking Paths” Lead Confusing Places
I’m always one of the last people to give up on a show. I’ve invested so much time in Once Upon A Time that I am definitely willing to continue with it. However, episodes like this make me question my unyielding loyalty to certain television programs. This was a fine episode for filling in gaps for our new main characters and what happened to them prior to the curse. It was well acted, and interesting and helpful information. But that’s about all it was. I enjoy a good visual story as much as the next guy, but if you’re really pressed for

Gotham Review: Bruce Succumbs to “The Blade’s Path”
This week’s episode of Gotham has finally broken free of the shackles it placed on itself by borrowing from the Dark Knight. Okay, so it really has broken free for a couple weeks now, but this episode finally felt like a separate story. Instead of retelling the Ra’s Al Ghul saga (though it touched on that), this episode spent most of its allotted hour exploring different character pairs than it normally uses. Some are more common than others, but all of them were compelling and fun to watch. First up, we have Gordon and Alfred (pictured above). The two have teamed up for badassery

‘The Good Doctor’ Is Now Bigger Than ‘NCIS’ and ‘This Is Us,’ By a Hair — Ratings Watch
The Nielsen “Doctor” is in. After three weeks of the new season, the ABC drama “The Good Doctor” appears to be a bonafide hit for the network.
According to the latest Nielsen data covering three days’ worth of time-shifting (including DVR and video on demand viewing), “The Good Doctor” is averaging 16.42 million viewers — making it not just TV’s most-watched new drama, but TV’s most-watched drama, period. That’s because after three weeks, “The Good Doctor” is just a smidge above CBS’ perennial powerhouse “NCIS” (16.35 million) and NBC’s emotional juggernaut “This Is Us” (16.19 million).
The show, starring Freddie Highmore as a high-functioning autistic physician, is also the fall’s No. 1 freshman drama and top-rated 10 p.m. series among Adults 18-49 (3.7 rating).
