Netflix

Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, announced that the new Disney streaming service will be called “Disney +“. Among the original works being added to the service are a reboot of High School Musical, an original series based on Monsters Inc, and movies such as Noel, starring Anna Kendrick as Santa’s daughter, and Togo starring William DeFoe about the 1925 Nome Serum Run. But what content does NerdBastards such as you, dear reader, care about? With the acquisition of Fox, Disney bolsters their content library. The 2019 launch of Disney + is still a few months out, so more news could pour in at any moment. But with access to Marvel, LucasArts, and Disney libraries, even without Fox’s considerable properties, there’s a lot for fans to look forward to. Rumors abound, but Mr. Iger was kind enough to confirm a few things.

The first episode of any Netflix series sets the tone, whether you’re watching nightly, weekly, or binging the entire series in a day (get ready for that judgemental “are you STILL watching this?” message, spelled with a silent “don’t you have a life?”). The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is no different. First and foremost, trying to distance itself from the cheesy Teenage Witch version from the late 90s to the early aughts, Sabrina comes out swinging and doesn’t pull its punches. But is it enough to keep the entire first episode strong and set up watchers with enough stamina to last the series? Warning! Small spoilers ahead!

On October 12th, Netflix announced the cancellation of it’s Marvel show Iron Fist. This came as a disappointment to many, but not exactly a shock. The show wasn’t doing well with critics even if the writing for Danny Rand and company was getting better. Oct 20th, however, caused fans of the Netflix Marvel shows some worry with the announcement of the cancellation of Luke Cage. What does this mean for the current running Marvel shows? What does this mean for the potential of future Marvel shows? Finn Jones, the actor who portrays Danny Rand ( whose full name is The Immortal Iron Fist, Defender of K’un-Lun and Sworn Enemy Of The Hand) gives us some clues and Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos chimes in to set fans at ease.

Excited Chills For The Chilling Adventure Of Sabrina

Reboots and remakes have become exceptionally bountiful in the past few years, and that has been particularly true for film and tv. The most successful of the lot, however, have historically been reborn kids’ shows. For example, the recently ended TMNT cartoon was heavily praised, the recent Voltron, Ducktales, and She-Ra remakes have been hits, and trailers/rumors for reboots of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Teen Titans have been very well-received.

Teen/Young Adult stories have been getting more buzz in their remakes, though, as of late. With the success of Riverdale, properties like The Heathers and Charmed are getting new updates for the modern teen. The one that’s caused the most talk, however, is the dark remake of Sabrina Spellman’s teenage life: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Netflix recently dropped season 2 of Marvel’s Iron Fist, a show with an overwhelmingly panned first season. As the fourth series to round out  “The Defenders” hero group of New York, the first season failed to do much except set up plot for The Defenders itself. Its main hero was annoying, parts of it were boring, and it quickly became known as the worst Marvel series to exist.

But what about season 2?

SDCC 2018: TV Trailers Overflow at Comic Con

Comic Con is often remembered for the big panels in Hall H, the massive studio presence by companies like Marvel, and the fans.  When Marvel announced they would not have the usual massive presence many worried that the behemoth that is SDCC might be slowing down in its old age (next year the con turns 50).  Nothing could have been further from the truth.

Along with news of tentpole films like Aquaman, WonderWoman84, and Godzilla King of Monsters there were also a lot of great new trailers for shows like Doctor Who, Star Trek: Discovery, and the Walking Dead franchise.

Sometimes those big reveals overshadow some other shows worthy of attention.
