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…

Camp Cretaceous: Season 2 Is Thrilling Escapism

The second season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous provides for thrilling and pure escapist entertainment as we return to Isla Nublar. I’m going to be honest here.  Because of everything going on, I needed to step away from the news two weeks ago on a Thursday evening.  There is no better way–at least for me during the pandemic–to have escapism than return to Isla Nublar.  It took almost three decades to get an animated Jurassic…

WandaVision: A Marvel Love Letter To Sitcom History

WandaVision is the Marvel Cinematic Universe sitcom we need right now but the series is a true love letter to television history in general. It’s been a while since Marvel released anything new for audiences to consume.  Because of the pandemic, Black Widow is delayed until May at the earliest.  My money is on another delay with how slow the vaccines are in getting rolled out.  But hey, I’ll take any new product from Marvel…

Gina Carano Must Be Fired From The Mandalorian

The Walt Disney Company has an obligation to fire actress Gina Carano from The Mandalorian following her Twitter activity. I don’t take this lightly.  This is not only something I say as a Star Wars fan but I also feel an obligation to speak out as a Disney shareholder.  If Cara Dune is part of The Mandalorian‘s third season, it will make for some rather uncomfortable viewing.  Should Dune be brought back for season 3,…

Yearly Departed: In Memoriam for 2020

While Yearly Departed featured a top-notch roast, a special musical sequence included everything we said goodbye to in 2020. The biggest surprise of all, and spoiler alert to anybody who didn’t watch yet: Christina Aguilera sings “I Will Remember You” during the In Memoriam tribute to everything we said goodbye to in 2020.  This sequence is no different than the Oscar or Emmy telecasts.  Unfortunately, you have to be paying special attention to see everything…
