Daredevil is the show that launched Marvel’s hefty presence on Netflix. With a dark and grimy street-level aesthetic, it and the other Marvel shows on the streaming service provide a grounded counterpoint to most of Marvel’s cinematic universe. Daredevil went back to basics with a story arc that borrowed liberally from Frank Miller’s iconic stints at the helm of the comic and over time many of the characters Miller either created or made his own have appeared in the show. One in particular though has largely been absent. Until now. If reports are true, the show may have its Bullseye. (more…)

Anyone that enjoys the Marvel Universe knows that all deaths aren’t really final. On this past Thursday FOX cancelled several shows as we reported previously. While other shows did get a good deal of press and fan reaction, no show had the sudden outpouring of grief like Brooklyn Nine Nine. The show, which stars Andy Samberg who was integral to the rise of Youtube (due to his SNL digital shorts made with his Lonely Island partners) has been picked up by NBC. Andy’s Jake Peralta is a detective in the 99th Precinct. The show has several other stand-outs like Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti (who is married to Jordan Peele) and Andre Braugher.

There have been many plans for a live-action Star Wars series on TV since the famous Holiday Special in 1978. None of those plans ever panned out. There have been various reports on multiple live-action series in development since Disney took over Lucasfilm in 2012. In 2013, it was revealed that 50 scripts had been written for a series titled ‘Star Wars: Underworld.‘ Then, just as suddenly that series evaporated. Now Jon Favreau has given us a glimpse at what is actually coming. (more…)
You might not have seen an episode of Rick and Morty before, but chances are you know exactly who the nihilistic Rick and his neurotic grandson are. If you have seen an episode, you’ve probably seen ALL the episodes several times and have begun to wub-a-lub-a-dub-dub to Justin Roiland’s Twitter post revealing there are enough new episodes coming to keep the show on screens for years to come.

Lucifer has been going strong for 3 seasons with no signs of slowing down. Bringing in fan-favorites Tom Welling and Tricia Helfer on board didn’t save the show from its inevitable fall from grace. The rumor started going around and has been confirmed by members of the cast. Fans and actors alike have taken to social media to air their grievances and discuss what the future holds for their beloved show.
Even if you’ve never watched the show, it’s difficult to escape the phenomenon that is Rick and Morty. This wildly popular Cartoon Network series has inspired a vast fandom, and created much conversation on some very heady topics.
To be clear, Rick and Morty is absolutely profane. It delivers nearly a constant barrage of dick jokes and other similar humor. Once could certainly spend plenty of time enjoying the hedonistic pleasures of that kind of humor alone. This is because the writers deliver such humor brilliantly. It never comes off as dirty jokes for the sake of dirty jokes.
Still, if you dig a bit deeper there’s a lot more to Rick and Morty. The show digs deep into some pretty intense stuff. So much so that it’s gotten people thinking about and discussing topics they normally wouldn’t, and that’s how a show can have a societal impact.
Here are five ways in which the writers of Rick and Morty are creating new conversations. (more…)
Luke Cage is the third Netflix/Marvel show to hit its second season, following Jessica Jones Season 2. The second seasons are expanding on the lives of The Defenders now that their origin stories are out of the way. Season 2 has a lot of expectations to live up to. The first season of Luke Cage was a hit to some and (excuse the pun) lukewarm to others. Does the trailer give us hope that the show can rise to the occasion? With a solid new villain and a returning cast, Luke Cage Season 2 has all tools it needs.
