Long Live Luke Cage: A Review

It took me a week, but I finally got around to binge-watching Luke Cage. It takes me a while to sort out my feelings usually, but…I loved it. Mike Colter as Cage is one of many stars in this exceptional cast of color. The dialogue is occasionally corny, which the show itself acknowledges. If it has one big problem, it’s trying to fit the wide array of Harlem culture in a mere thirteen episodes.

Why Netflix’s “Stranger Things” Is The Show I’ve Been Looking For

Ever since the term “binge-watching” came to be, I had a hard time finding myself a part of the phenomena. Netflix has been considered the cornerstone of said trend, producing some of the greatest TV programming over the past few years – but it sadly never caught on in my household. Sure, there were series I was becoming a fan of – including BBC’s Musketeers, which I still consider one of the best shows out there, along with Outlander and Showtime’s Masters of Sex, so I’ve found a few shows that trigger that bit of addictive watching in me. But when I first saw the trailer for the new Netflix original show Stranger Things, I knew something seemed different – but in the best way possible.

Screw the Zombies, Assassins, and Ship Wars: Fight for Galavant and Agent Carter

It’s May, which means Official Cancellation Season. Among the latest of several network cullings are ABC’s Galavant and Agent Carter.  Despite positive fan reception, both shows suffered low ratings in their second seasons.  They were also pet projects of Paul Lee, the network’s Entertainment President who was ousted in February and replaced by Channing Dungey.

So while the chopping block wasn’t unexpected, that didn’t make it hurt any less when ABC swung the axe.

Fuller House Reaction

When it was announced that Fuller House was coming to Netflix, I was so incredibly excited. I’m a sucker for nostalgia, and remakes and spinoffs appeal to my more nostalgic soul. Though when I was preparing myself for blasts from the past and throwbacks, I never could have prepared myself for what the show actually was.

From catch phrases to remaking old scenes, this show is not for new fans. It is to please the already existing, extremely large, and supporting fan base. By the end of the season you might even be saying, “Oh mylanta!”  Continue reading Fuller House Reaction

Today, the latest teaser for the show dropped. While Jessica (Krysten Ritter) puts together a wall of photographs in a P.I. office, we’re treated to a slither-y voiceover from David Tennant.

Top 5 Reasons Fans of “Wet Hot” Will Love “First Day of Camp”

Netflix premiered Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp on July 31st, and if I hadn’t been backpacking up a mountain, I probably would have sat down that night and been at least halfway through the 8-episode prequel series in one night. For those uninitiated to the cult of Wet Hot, the original movie came out in 2001, and tells the story of the last day of camp at fictional Camp Firewood in 1981, near Waterville, ME. The cast includes everyone from Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, to Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler. And more. There is romance, absurdity, men in short-shorts, and some really awkward kissing. And if you’re a fan of the original, you will most likely love Netflix’s prequel, First Day of Camp – and here are five reasons why:

Elektra-fying Casting: Élodie Yung Joins Daredevil Season Two

the greek girlIt was already an exciting week for Daredevil fans – filming of season two commenced, as actors Charlie Cox and Elden Henson were spotted in East Harlem as Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson. Now we can officially look forward to our favorite avocadoes-at-law and…what’s this? A blast from their past?

In a season one flashback to their college days, Foggy gave Matt some good-natured ribbing about enrolling in Spanish just to be near a certain “Greek girl”. Keen-eared fans instantly caught the reference to Elektra Natchios, an anti-heroine known for her martial arts skills as well as her tumultuous relationship with Matt Murdock/Daredevil.

That easter egg is about to pay off: Élodie Yung joins the cast as the much-anticipated Elektra.
