TV Review: Legion (Season 1)

Fantastic show, with unique characters and a lot of quirks. This series has an abundance of style and substance. But the style is what sets it apart. 1960’s inspired deco, unexpected musical selections and the occasional dance number allow the more mundane moments to shine. The plot actually follows a fairly typical comic book narrative.… Read More »

TV Review: Iron Fist (Season 1)

**Some spoilers in this review** This show takes a long time to find its footing, and even then, may only appeal to Marvel Comics and martial arts fans.

TV Review: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (Season 3)

*Some spoilers included* Another solid season from “Agents of SHIELD,” but there’s always something seemingly holding it back from greatness. Part of the problem is the pacing. The show hurries through some interesting storylines while dragging out others that don’t really payoff. There’s also too many moments where the show tries to inject humor and… Read More »

TV Review: Supergirl (Season 1)

** This review contains spoilers**  A very uneven show that makes some important course corrections early, but never truly finds its footing. The season started with a poor setup. While the Supergirl character was always going to work, everything else seemed like it was bound to fail. The icy boss, the best friend who may… Read More »

TV Review: Daredevil (Season 2)

**This review will contain some spoilers** Season 2 of Daredevil features a great cast, well-choreographed action sequences and popular elements from the comic book. However, poor execution in the second half of the season mars the terrific start. The three main returning cast members (Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Wolf and Eldon Henson) still have great… Read More »
