Now anyone who knows me knows I’m a Stephen King slappy and his adaptations that are done well are amazing and those that aren’t are usually garbage. I guess when you have the volume of work that this man does it is bound to go both ways. Here’s hoping Hulu brings the A game to this anthology series.
I wasn’t especially impressed with last season’s run, hoping this one does a better job.
Anyone who knows me knows my love for this show. Psych is comfort food, the grilled cheese and warm tomato soup on a cold day type of TV show that just makes me feel oh so good inside. The fact it has such a wholesome approach to it only makes it that much better because my son can enjoy it with me.
Shawn, Gus, Juliet, and Lassiter was the perfect combination of friction and friendship, and while most of the stories were a bit frivolous and unbelievable, they did drama well too. I dare you to watch the Yin-Yang trilogy and not be impressed.
Bring it back and make it bigger than ever.
Speaking of Netflix, this is what they do best. Without a doubt the most anticipated return of a show and I know I’m watching the whole thing October 27.
I don’t see how it can match the perfection of the first season, but damn it looks good.
I can honestly say I have never been more excited for a show in my life than the second season of this. It will be a one day binge, guaranteed.
Looks way better than Iron Fist, hope it holds up.
I don’t know who covers cable series when it comes to award season, but I have found the winner already. If you don’t want Starz American Gods every week you are missing out on the best show bar none on television right now.
Now that’s out of the way, this monologue from Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones) opening the “Secret of the Spoons” episode (102) is stunning on every level. Not only does Mr. Jones have the swagger, the on-screen persona, the sheer mass to carry the scene and the weight of the monologue, he does it with panache and charm and intensity of a televangelist literally sucking out the last $2 from Social Security retirees bank account.
I can’t imagine any other scene this year will be both as poignant, elegant and intense hitting so many of the modern issues and yet restating the sad, sad adage that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Your favorite Saturday morning cartoons are going digital. Turner and Warner Bros. are teaming up for a new standalone video subscription service called Boomerang. It’ll offer over 5,000 titles from the Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes and MGM animation libraries when it launches this spring.
Boomerang launched in 2000 as a digital TV channel, but this is the first time it’s offering classic franchises like Scooby-Doo, Tom & Jerry, The Jetsons and The Flintstones on a streaming platform. It will also stream exclusive new episodes of Scooby-Doo, Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry, along with brand-new original series like a Wizard of Oz spinoff and a remake of the 1968 show Wacky Races.
This looks very Stranger Thingsish, but compelling nonetheless. Even if it is in another language.
The first comic book I ever got was Iron Fist and Power Man. I was very happy with the Power Man series (Luke Cage for the uninitiated) and hoping that this one continues the dark theme of Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Luke Cage.
