March 2010

Celebrating 15 years. One more year until this site can drive.

It’s that time of the decade again. Every March in a year divisible by 5, I reach a nice, round milestone. This time, it’s 15. Yes, that’s right: It’s the 15th anniversary of Jammer’s Reviews being on the web.

I guess technically it’s only the fourth anniversary of “Jammer’s Reviews,” since the 10 years before that the site was called “Star Trek: Hypertext.” I think for the first year or so it was actually called “Hypertext Reviews of Current Star Trek Episodes.” Talk about prosaic. If you remember when it was called that, please send a shout out in the comments below. (Read more…)

Word is, this is going to end up being the last season for 24. Based on what we’ve seen this season, I’m thinking that wouldn’t be such a bad idea, especially if it allows the show to just get it over with and become a movie franchise.

24 as a series has gotten awfully long in the tooth, and clearly it has simply run out of ideas. The question is not whether the show will surprise us, but whether the show will be entertaining enough in recycling itself to deliver respectably for an hour. I’m not sure what’s worse: The general malaise of this season, or the haphazardly messy multiple shark-jumping of season six. Season eight has so far merely alternated between the typically competent 24 action moments, plenty of mediocre beats, and lots of filler. (Read more…)
