It will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I loved the first season of The Punisher. You might have assumed that I would like it since I am an admitted former comic book geek, even though I’m a couple of decades out of the continuity. While this is true, I was […]Read more "Marvel’s The Punisher: Season 1: a review"
00:15:01 – 00:30:00 At the end of the first chapter of the Rogue Edition of 15-Minute Force, Captain Cassian Andor, the head of Rebel Intelligence famous during the first fifteen minutes for shooting an informant in the back, had just asked our new friend and strong female role model Jyn Erso when she had […]Read more "Rogue One: a Star Wars story (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Two: Kyber Crystals–This Year’s Midichlorians"

There have been interesting moments, but not enough to make me look forward to the next episode. Season 4 kicked off with […]Read more "Gotham: Season 4 Midseason Review [Spoilers]"
