I’ve come to praise Preacher, not to bury it. However, the series is over. Season 4 was its last and we all knew that going into it. The story was allowed to play out to its unnatural conclusion. The final season seemed consistent with the previous three, for good or ill. It’s been a while […]Read more "Preacher: Season 4 — a review"
I almost didn’t watch Pennyworth. You want reasons? Well . . . I knew it was developed by Bruno Heller, the British gentleman who also created the show Gotham for FOX. It’s not fair to let that sentence stand alone like that. It makes it sound like I didn’t like Gotham, which is not wholly […]Read more "Pennyworth: Season 1 — a review"
DC Universe is a video-on-demand service operated by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Digital Network. Titans was the first web television series offered on this streaming platform. The series was created by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti, three names that should be familiar to DC Comics fans. Akiva Goldsman was a screenwriter […]Read more "Titans: Season 1 — a review"
Yes, I’ve heard about what’s going on with most of the Marvel shows on Netflix. I plan to write a separate post about that. This one is a review of the third season of Daredevil. Matt Murdock/Daredevil was killed during the collapse of Midland Circle in last year’s Defenders. Well, we, the viewers, knew he […]Read more "Daredevil: Season 3 — a review"
Okay. Let’s face facts here, gang. This is a ridiculous show. I’m not kidding. Ridiculous. It has few redeeming qualities, and I’ll probably forget most of it in a few years. It is not a deeply layered drama with multidimensional characters and themes that stick with you for more than a few days. It’s schlock, […]Read more "Riverdale: Season 2 — a review"
Let me tell you how I got to Riverdale. It wasn’t a direct route, although in hindsight it does seem like a place I was destined to go, even if I really didn’t want to. For starters, I have a long history with the citizens of Riverdale. I’ve not hidden the fact that I was […]Read more "Riverdale: Season 1 — a review"
Maybe time travel was always the bane of Barry Allen’s existence. I remember a lot of time travel stories from the comic books when I was a kid, back when the Flash had to use a treadmill to time travel and Carmine Infantino was the quintessential Flash artist. Maybe some of the stories involved Barry […]Read more "The Flash: Season Five Premiere Episode “Nora” — a review"
The television series with the longest episode titles known to man (which still aren’t as long as my own 15-Minute Force titles) has returned for a second season. I liked the first season of Black Lightning. Specifically, I liked that it featured a middle-aged superhero, who happens to be black. I also liked the cast […]Read more "Black Lightning: Season 2 Premiere Episode, “The Book of Consequences-Chapter One: Rise of the Green Light Babies” — a review"
A lot of people chose to dogpile on the mound of criticism directed at the first season of Iron Fist. I can understand why, objectively. It was my least favorite of the Marvel shows on Netflix, at the time. Still, I thought it was okay. Just okay. Not great. So, I went into Season Two […]Read more "Marvel’s Iron Fist: Season Two — a review"
Well, God was willing, and I humbly received another season of AMC’s irreverent graphic novel adaptation Preacher. This has been another great, gory season, and I hope that we can prophesize at least one more season. There is so much more of this singular world to explore. The Garth Ennis/Steve Dillon comic books will always […]Read more "Preacher: Season 3 — a review"
