Ever since the good old days of “Old School” NES, there has always been Castlevania. The tales of vampire hunter Simon Belmont, a descendant of the Belmont Clan of vampire hunters as he uses his whip “Vampire Killer” to take on the forces of darkness. The popular series has more than 29 video game adaptations across many platforms from the Family Computer Disk System or FDS (yes, it’s that old) all the way to mobile phone games in the current age.

The latest collaboration between Netflix and Marvel, Iron Fist hit the streaming service this past weekend. While the show has not been well received by critics, it was still well watched this weekend by fans of the MCU. The show was trending on social media all weekend and has an audience score of 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, so the jury’s out on a whole. The show followed Danny Rand as he returned to New York after a 15-year absence training in the mystical land of K’un-Lun. Comic book fans wanted to see Danny Rand in his classic Iron Fist costume that we all know and love from the comics. Unfortunately, the show confirmed that he will not don the Iron Fist costume on the show (at least in the first season). That doesn’t mean that we didn’t see it on the show, though.

Netflix, the popular streaming service that has continued to dominate all our free time has been a game changer. In addition to coining the phrase binge-watching, and giving us the perfect way to consume TV and movies from the comfort of our own homes (or on the go), the streaming service has been increasingly delivering Original Programming the same way HBO or any other premiere subscription cable service has, without the need for a cable package. We have such great shows like Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Stranger Things, and many others. Now, it looks like Netflix will once again change the game for us.

We cannot get enough of Stranger Things! The Netflix sleeper hit that came this summer gave us the perfect storm of nostalgia, sci-fi, horror, and just good old storytelling done well! It’s no surprise that the show would get greenlit for a second season as we want to see what will happen in the lives of Will, Mike, Eleven, and the gang as more mysteries of the Upside Down get explored. We already know that most of the gang will be returning for the second season, and the show will also be adding three new characters on the show named Max, Billy, and Roman. The show already had 80’s heavyweight Winona Ryder, and it looks like they will be adding a few more heavyweights for the second season.

While historically some of its movie libraries have not been so great, Netflix has been killing it with its original Series programming. With such dynamic shows as House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, and Bojack Horseman, the streaming service is slowly becoming a TV powerhouse with just as many (if not more) subscriptions as HBO and other premium channels. Of course, you can’t forget their partnership with Marvel Television bringing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and it will soon bring Iron Fist and The Defenders next year. But Netflix once again changed the game with Stranger Things.

This weekend the streaming service Netflix unveiled their latest Original Programming show Stranger Things upon the public. Set in the 1980s surrounding the mysterious disappearance of a small child in small-town Indiana, the show has become a bona fide hit. Already with a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, critics and fans alike are delivering high praise for the eight-episode television show steeped in nostalgia, science fiction, action, comedy, and horror. The show pays homage to many of the classics from the 1980s as well, drawing influence from Stephen Spielberg, John Carpenter, Stephen King, and many others. Many fans are already clamoring for a second season, and Netflix hasn’t even said if they were going to do one. Rest assured, if Marco Polo can get a second season, Stranger Things will sure get one as well!

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…)
