agents-of-shield-season-4

Season four of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. promises new characters and the use of “old S.H.I.E.L.D technology.” Now, Marvel has teased audiences with the idea of Life Model Decoy’s for some time now. In The Avengers, Tony Stark tells Coulson he’s speaking to the “Life Model Decoy of Tony Stark,” and in Age of Ultron we saw Vision take on physical form, but Life Model Decoys have not been directly addressed. With teases like this many fans knew it was just a matter of time before the introduction of Life Model Decoys and it seems the wait might be over.

Tom Felton is probably a name you’ll most likely recognize from the credits of the Harry Potter franchise. You know, the one who played sarcastic, yet misunderstood Draco Malfoy in the series. Tom has continued to move his acting career forward. The most recent news is that he’s set to join the cast of The CW’s, The Flash television series! It seems as though he’s dropped the magic of the wizarding world and moved on to the power of comic book heroes. (more…)

lost in space

Netflix has been pretty damned good about bringing viewers some quality “television” shows over the past few years. Their foray into producing their own series has brought us such amazing programs as House of Cards, Daredevil and more. Now they’ll be jumping on the reboot bandwagon, though the property they’ve chosen to bring back is one that just might be ripe for a new interpretation. What show is that, you ask? The 1960s sci-fi classic Lost in Space. (more…)

The finale for HBO‘s Game of Thrones sixth season blew the roof off the series ratings record from the fifth season finale with 800,000 more viewers setting the new record at 8.9 million for the on air broadcast. When HBO tallies the numbers for those that watched the finale on DVR, encore, On-Demand, and those that streamed the finale on HBO GO and HBO NOW estimates put the number at 23.3 million total viewers. That’s enough people to make up the entire population of Taiwan. There’s no doubt the show is popular and with two seasons left, and only 15 episodes between them, fans are excited to see what’s coming. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had a couple of things to tell fans about the upcoming two seasons. (more…)

Game-of-Thrones

Wow. What a finale! Last night’s season six curtain call of Game of Thrones was full of wages settled, alliances forged, and a definitely feeling that the show was building towards the final moves of the “Great Game.” There were some revelations, and big payoffs as years of build-up paid off for certain characters and saw the unassuming exit of several more, but let’s ask the obvious question: What happens now? Let’s pick at the story threads of season six and untangle them as we look to where we’re going, and where it all might end as we start our long annual wait for more Game of Thrones. Spoilers follow obviously.  (more…)

Netflix‘s second season of Daredevil was fantastic in so many ways. Jon Bernthal knocked it so far out of the park when it came to Frank Castle and the Punisher that Marvel and Netflix decided to spinoff the character into his own Netflix Punisher series. Bernthal recently talked about the character and what we might expect to see in the series and had some interesting and poignant things to say about Frank Castle and the Punisher. (more…)

King in the North

Winter has finally come! Last week we were left with Jon Snow vs Ramsey Bolton and all of its great epicness. On this week’s season finale of Game of Thrones we not only got to see the aftermath of that glorious battle, but we also got a whole lot moving in the rest of the seven kingdoms. Pretty much every story going on moved forward and either reached some sort of conclusion or helped set up something cool for next season. Everything from Cersei’s trial, to multiple deaths, to finally confirming a long-running fan theory, this week’s Game of Thrones did not disappoint.

Warning: This article contains spoilers from the “Game of Thrones” Season 6 episode “The Winds of Winter.”

Netflix

In the past, the streaming giant Netflix has stated that they would not have an “offline” option for their service. Amazon Prime and Comcast gave their customers the option to download shows/movies from their apps to their smartphones/tablets/PCs for offline viewing at later times. Those worries about maxing out on their bandwidth (or just wanted to watch service in an area without Wi-Fi or 3G) had the option to download and view later for their own convenience. However, Netflix was firmly against such an action in the past. Statements like “It’s never going to happen” came from their director of communications Cliff Edwards in 2014 and “I’m just not sure people are actually that compelled to do that, and that it’s worth providing that level of complexity,” came from their chief product officer Neil Hunt last year. It looks like Netflix has had a change of heart.
