And all of the Emmy awards go to…
Although cancelled, Iron Fist‘s most recent season is still available, and it’s a definite improvement on season one. I would not allow myself to start the next season of Daredevil until I finished this. Now that I have, you can expect a review of the third season of Daredevil in the next few weeks.
It’s not exactly “news” anymore, but I thought I’d throw it out there. Just in case there was any discussion/conjecture/wild speculation to be had out there.
I know Iron Fist wasn’t a beloved series, but it sounded like Luke Cage was well-liked series. Maybe combining them into Heroes for Hire?
Someone online: “It’s Shadowrun meets Alien Nation”
Me: “I’m in.”
Marvel’s latest Netflix series went live on November 17, headlining the Marvel hero I dislike the most. There is no character that has ever had his or her own ongoing title by Marvel that I am less interested in reading about than The Punisher, and that’s including characters like US 1, the trucker who picks up CB radio signals through a metal plate in his skull. Is the series worth checking out?
Marvel’s latest Netflix series has been out for just over 48 hours. How does it hold up? Note: there is a scene after the credits of the final episode.
Jim Henson’s visually stunning epic, The Dark Crystal, amazed (and terrified) children in the 1980’s. Now the company he founded is bringing the world to life again in a new series for Netflix. Puppets and all!
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance doesn’t appear to have a release date yet. Here’s the Press Release from The Jim Henson Company.
Marvel’s latest entry has been getting an unduly bad wrap. I’ve moved away from written reviews as a way to manage my tendinitis, hence all the podcasts, but this is getting so much negative criticism that I disagree with that I had to say my piece. It’s not perfect, and it’s probably the weakest of the Marvel Netflix series, but naming the weakest Marvel Netflix series is like naming the shortest player in the starting lineup of a professional basketball team. This is flawed, but it’s still good.
It’s a rumor that’s probably full of…um…high grade fertilizer, but it’s fun to speculate.
What would you like to see in a new Star Trek series? More prequel/reboot stuff? Back to the TNG/DS9/Voyager time period? Or go even farther into the future (the next-next generation)?
