Big Shot: Another Basketball Redemption Story

Big Shot, the basketball dramedy starring John Stamos as basketball coach Marvyn Korn, is the latest new series premiering on Disney+. Press were given the opportunity to screen the first three episodes for review. How does Wisconsin coach Marvyn Korn (John Stamos) end up losing his job and coaching an elite private school team? Though if we want to be more specific, Korn is now coaching a girl’s high school basketball team. Through the montage…

John Walker: New Captain America Is A Villain

The newest episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier showed what we all knew coming in: John Walker (Wyatt Russell) is the real villain of the series. You don’t have to like John Walker. I know for a fact that I don’t. He’ll never be my Captain America. So far, nothing he’s done during the first four episodes is worthy of taking a mantle that doesn’t belong to him. That we even saw this…

The following contains spoilers for “Breakway,” the third episode in The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.

The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers Hits Disney+

The quack attack is back after 25 years when The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers makes its long-awaited streaming debut on Disney+. These are not the same Mighty Ducks that we grew up with. After ten consecutive championships, they’re basically the Hawks. There’s no other way to say it. I grew up watching the Ducks as the underdog. The brand that they’re playing now is super competitive and you have to be better than just being…

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Finally Arrives

Marvel fans will be happy as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier finally makes it’s arrival on Disney+ after a very lengthy delay. It’s been more than a few months since the last time we saw Sam Wilson/The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes (Sebastian Stan). The last time we saw them was when old Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) suddenly appeared on a bench late in Avengers: Endgame. In case you forgot, Steve…

Elizabeth Olsen: WandaVision Work Deserves Emmy

The performance by Elizabeth Olsen in the eighth episode of WandaVision is the type of acting work that should be honored with an Emmy. This article contains spoilers for “Previously On,” the eighth episode of WandaVision. Elizabeth Olsen broke through the scene with her performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene.  The film was the 2011 version of Winter’s Bone in that the Sundance-premiering indie had the same chance of repeating with Oscar nominations. It didn’t…

Superman and Lois: The Pilot is Promising

Superman and Lois might be the newest addition to the Arrowverse but Superman fans in general are no strangers to the adventures of Lois and Clark. I grew up watching Superman on TV in various iterations. I watched both 1993-97’s Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and 2001-2011’s Smallville. Because of this, I’m no stranger to these characters.  There are also the films starring Christopher Reeve. The rest is history. Superman and Lois…

WandaVision, Disney+, and the Binge-Watch Culture

By launching a weekly series like WandaVision rather than all episodes at the same time, Disney+ is making sure viewers keep coming back. WandaVision and The Mandalorian both have viewers coming back each week.  One is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe while the other is a Star Wars series.  At the end of the day, however, the episodes have viewers talking.  Unfortunately, they are also the type of series where you have to watch…

Sundance 2021: These Days

These Days is a half-hour pandemic-set comedy but whether it will be appealing to audiences or not is something that remains to be seen. Mae (Marianne Rendón) is a professional dancer so the pandemic has not been kind in terms of work.  We don’t know much about her when we first meet her.  What we do know is that she’s trying the whole online dating over Skype.  Guy #1 is an epic disaster.  Seriously, you…

Thank you, Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers

Thank you to Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers for somehow helping me get through the four years of the Trump Administration. The last four years have been completely unbearable but they were made better by turning to both Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers every night.  Unless the duo were off on a given night.  There’s so many late night hosts to watch on TV but Colbert and Meyers were the most political by far.  Of…
