‘Stan Against Evil’ Season 2 Premiere Episodes

Published

Episode 1: ‘Black Hat Society Part 1’

Welcome back to the insane supernatural world of Willard’s Mill, forever in progress! When we last left our heroes, heroines, bad guys and losers, Sheriff Evie was in a serious pickle, so let’s dive right in to save her, yet again!

Our favorite former Sheriff Stan Miller (John C. McGinley) can simply never catch a break, we know this. He knows damned well this alternate Willard’s Mill, with freaking Leon (Nate Mooney) as the Sheriff, simply isn’t right. Something’s not right, something’s missing, perhaps someone. And we all know by now, when our favorite curmudgeon Stan gets a bee in his bonnet, neither heaven nor the underworld will prevent him from getting to the bottom of things!

Willard’s Mill has a witches coven, because of course it does, duh. And inevitably, like all the other reluctant-grin-inducing humor of the town, this particular coven is called the Black Hat Society. The BHS has tons of prophecies and yes, this disappearance of Evie brings one of the major ones about Stan to the forefront. Stan is “the prophesied one”, after all. He has all kinds of stuff to take care of, but for right now, gotta go dig up a grave.

Anywhere else but Willard’s Mill, and we might look at you funny. But no, a wraith was buried in this nasty grave with the faded ‘Barret’ marker, and only Stan can deal with it!

Episode 2: ‘Black Hat Ssociety Part 2’

How exactly does a wraith in a grave from more than a hundred years ago still have eyes? What are wraith eyes like, anyways? Well whatever. Stan has the two eyeballs and uses them to go through a special room in the old Eccles farm to go way back to the 1600’s, to attend Evie Barret’s (Janet Varney) execution.

Wait, what? It turns out, Constable Thaddeus Eccles (Randall Newsome) was in charge of law, if you can call it that, in Willard’s Mill way back in somewhere around 1698 or so. And Eccles was a bad, bad man. Eckles sent his own daughter Constance, herself a budding witch, through time to do battle with anyone who might try to stop him here in the present, and that of course means fighting Stan and Evie and anyone else who might try to stop them!

Constance herself seems to have inherited her fathers sense of the ridiculous use of witchcraft and sorcery, which she clearly demonstrates when she smooshes together a pair of hapless teenagers to use as fodder sent against Stan and company. Stan’s own daughter Denise (Deborah Baker Jr.) usually gets the best one-liners of the show, everything from bad names for a home tooth-cleaning service to the smirking result of the two-in-one being hit by a car: “Teenagers sure are full of goo!”

Perhaps the best thing about our griping, forever-tired sourpuss of a retired Sheriff Stan, is his giant heart. For all that he bitches about all the supernatural nonsense going on around him, Stan never lets it get him down completely. He spent these first two episodes of Season 2 trying desperately to bring Evie back, and in the end, as he confronts Constance Eccles and could’ve killed her, his mercy and gigantic heart is what saved all of Willard’s Mill. And as a thank-you for Stan’s kindness, Constance Eccles left him a clue we all found intriguing: ‘Find Gerard Ducett, and may God help you.’

Masterchef Is Back! For Halo Season 2

Published

on

A quick recap – Halo is set in a war-torn 26th century, where humanity led by the United Nations Space Command or UNSC and their supersoldiers known as Spartans, fights against the onslaught of the alien conglomerate known as the Covenant. The full dust-up of Halo Season 1, can be found here. Onward into the introduction of Halo Season 2!

It’s been six months since the forced separation of Spartan Masterchief John (Pablo Schreiber) and Cortana (Jen Taylor), and the Silver Team has been sent on a mission to evacuate residents of the planet Sanctuary before the Covenant glasses the whole thing. This comes with its own set of challenges, given the resistance of the planet’s inhabitants, and it doesn’t help that Masterchef starts seeing things right in the middle of trying to save some marines. Or is he? Those energy swords the squad of Elites were carrying looked worryingly real.

Back on Reach, the Silver Team is entirely dismayed to learn they have a brand new Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) representative come in as the new boss, to finally replace the traitorous Halsey, James Ackerson (Joseph Morgan). And of course, Ackerson manages to immediately get under Masterchief’s skin, by not only expressing far too much interest in John’s relationship with Cortana but also apparently disbelieving of John’s report of his encounters on Sanctuary. That just means Masterchief has to go around, if not entirely over, Ackerson’s head.

Elsewhere, Soren (Bokeem Woodbine) is trolling the slave markets in his boredom, only to stumble across a soon-to-be indentured servant who claims he knows the whereabouts of the UNSC’s most hunted human, Catherine Halsey (Natascha McElhone). That should bring a huge bounty, but really, Soren should’ve known better by now.

Halo Season 2 premieres Thursday, February 8th, 2024, and will continue to air every Thursday, only on Paramount+!

Reborn as a Vending Machine I Now Wander the Dungeon’: I look forward to your next use!  

Published

on

If the title of this delightful little isekai anime entry didn’t give it all away, our nameless protagonist is a vending machine fanatic who, after being killed by a vending machine, gets reincarnated in another fantasy-style world as one! 

Japan has a tendency to give birth to all sorts of crazed fads that can last for decades, and no one does better when it comes to the vending machine industry, too. These days there are vending machines that will serve you sushi you can actually eat, hot pizza in the box, wagyu steaks, freshly popped popcorn, and a whole mind-boggling array of tasty treats, and other non-edible but still useful items! Umbrellas! Condoms! Oxygen masks, sterile bandages, shoes, and emergency clothing! Actually, far more things that we use on an everyday basis, could be considered as technically a vending machine, and the anime explores that beautifully. Into the world of vending machine fanaticism, we dive! 

So our poor protagonist never gave a name, and inevitably when he’s discovered by his first official friend the starving hunter Lammis, she dubs him “Boxxo”. Like many isekai that seem to take inspiration from video games and RPGs, Boxxo discovers he ways he can communicate, level up his existence, and even evince magic-like powers and attack and defend against monsters and enemies. Though in the beginning, and as an underlying theme throughout the show, Boxxo is primarily concerned with providing unique never-before-tasted-in-this-world food and drink to the amazed folk, human and otherwise. 

Boxxo’s prices are entirely reasonable and hey, he can even choose to give out his wares for free on occasion, so his popularity immediately skyrockets. Lammis with her awkward charm and prodigious strength blessing, introduces Boxxo to other friends of Clearflow Lake Village and associates along the way – Director Bear, an actual bear-monster who’s the head of the Hunters Association; Lammis’ friend Hulemy, the insane genius magic item engineer; the Bearcats Suco, Pell, Short and Mikenne, cheerful hunters with astronomic appetites; even suspicious Kerioyl, leader of the Menagerie of Fools party. 

The show approaches the practicality and versatility of the true vending machine with amusement, but also with the love true fans display for things they’re passionate about. Certainly, things like a brothel needing a condom vending machine exist in our world, but to toss them into a potentially more innocent other-world isekai is a welcome and often hilarious treat. The show celebrates the cheerful idiocy and devotion of the fans to their chosen fandom, in this case, yes vending machines, but also the spirit of the lonely otaku finally finding their Tribe!
