Midnighter always knew that one day he would have to face the Devil himself to answer for all the people he’s killed here on Earth…and that day is today! It’s a bare-knuckle brawl between Midnighter and Neron for the soul of Apollo!

Barrio Quien Sabe is full of some of the most colorful, oddball characters in the world, but what about one from out of it? The Homies go back in time as they remember the arrival of Alien Ese, the illegal alien from outer space! Starting with his travels across the galaxy, to crash landing in Roswell, New Mexico, to escaping Area 51 and finally hitchhiking his way to L.A., the story of Alien Ese tells us that no matter where you’re from, if you’re an immigrant looking for a better life, you’re always welcome in the barrio!

SINK is a series of offbeat, stand alone crime stories, all linked by one shared location: Sinkhill.

A forgotten East End district of a warped funhouse mirror vision of Glasgow, Scotland, Sinkhill is a hive of crooks, deviants and killers, and ordinary folk unfortunate enough to live among them.

Rating: ★★½☆☆

  1. Listening to the conversation about the time between seasons or episodes of a tv show.
    I have become a big fan of the 10-13 episode seasons. There is so much good content out there and so little time that a 20+ episode season can be quite a bit to keep up with.
    Unfortunately the binge approach to tv has caused other problems. I will consume a new season of a show within a couple weeks. Then I have to wait sometimes a year or more for the next season to be available. Since I binged the show all at once, rather than slowly digest it over time, I tend to forget most of the details during the break and find myself having to rewatch prior seasons. We never had this problem when you only had to wait from May to August for your show to return.
    I still think we are better off with the new format and shows are just getting better and better.
