X-Men: Dark Phoenix

   I just watched X-Men: Dark Phoenix. I cut my teeth on the Dark Phoenix saga when I was a youngling. It was an amazing experience. The story is still just as strong today as it was when it was first told.    As an original fan of Claremont and Byrne's seminole epic tale of… Continue reading X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Halloween with the New Addams Family

   In October of 1977 we were treated to a fun little Halloween special, Halloween with the New Addams Family.    I am not sure why the "New" was added to the title, but most of the cast returned for this special even the kids.    Join in the fun and give it a watch.… Continue reading Halloween with the New Addams Family

Catching up with the Coming Crisis

   When Arrow first aired, I was there. For every episode, I was there. After the fourth or fifth season we had an on-again-off-again relationship.

Instead of ranting about it I chose to just become… Continue reading Catching up with the Coming Crisis

Quick Thoughts: The Batwoman Pilot on the CW

Having seen the crossover event last year, I know she'll be getting her comic book style more with the red hair eventually.… Continue reading Quick Thoughts: The Batwoman Pilot on the CW

Rewatch: Legends of Tomorrow

   I've been a fan of Legends of Tomorrow since it first aired. It was unique and quirky, in other words it shouldn't have ever existed. Fortunately there are execs at the CW who apparently are into taking chances. After all of these seasons Legends come and Legends go, and a few have made the… Continue reading Rewatch: Legends of Tomorrow

Bye Bye Binge Watching

[edit] It was pointed out that Netflix is only starting with one show as a weekly release. This will be done as an experiment. Short of dropping prices, which I am confident that they will not/can not do, releasing all of their new content weekly is the one easy answer to keep subscribers coming back… Continue reading Bye Bye Binge Watching

Crisis on Infinite Earths

   I cannot express how much I want to see what the folks over at the CW have instore for us with #Crisis on Infinite Earths. I don't usually get very excited about upcoming events but the scope of each of their #Crossover events has been expanding exponentially over the years and this one is… Continue reading Crisis on Infinite Earths
