Marvel’s The Defenders: Season 1

Marvel's Netflix series has finally arrived, bringing together four notable franchises. 7860

Catching up on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD before Season 5

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD (AoS) has gone through its ups and downs over the past four seasons. With the 5th season of the show coming up, I decided to sit down, re-watch and re-hash the first four seasons of the sometimes forgotten branch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 7846

Friends From College

Featuring Keegan-Michael Key and Fred Savage, this Netflix series takes  a comedic look at the intertwined lives of friends from Harvard as they reunite in their 40's. Backed by a nostalgic 90's soundtrack, the series explores the complications of (among other things) marrying your past with your present. 7754

Winners and losers for Comicbooks / Super Shows in Spring 2017

During the spring 2017 season, I put a moratorium on doing episode-by-episode write-ups on the TV shows I was following. I felt like there were starting to get to be too many shows and that too many of the ones I was doing write-ups on had become comic book based. Obviously, I love that genre, but I wanted to take a step back and remember what it was like watching those shows normally. I also figured that there's more than enough people doing up to the minute coverage of this whole genre. So, I sat back and watched, and here were my takeaways from the season. 7591

Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic – Season 1

This series premiered in 2013 and the first season showed up on Netflix, seemingly, immediately. I put off watching it for a while, but I finally decided to give in and watch Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic. I was going to just do a write-up of the entire series, but the story is so heavily partitioned that I thought it best to do this one season at a time. 4680

Yona of the Dawn (Akatsuki no Yona)

Season 1 of Yona of the Dawn (YotD) has come and gone. It's a show with a lot of positives that's reminiscent of some older, long running, shows like Fushigi Yuugi. This first season really just sets the groundwork for the story. So, if it doesn't get a second season, this show will end up just being an entryway into the manga for viewers who want to complete the story. 3561

Torchwood – Season 4 – Miracle Day

WARNING: series ends with a cliff hanger (-_-). I prefer to think of Torchwood, season 4 as "Torchwood USA". The season was co-produced by BBC One and the Starz network making it notably different from other Torchwood seasons, but not the full on American remake it was planned to be. Minor spoilers contained within the recap. 2167

Dexter

The Showtime series Dexter has been on my list of talked about shows to binge watch for a while now. With the recent holiday season I was finally able to get it checked off. 1907

House of Cards

Initially, I thought I'd be able to write about this show without containing spoilers. It turns out that I was wrong. So, I'll try to do this by writing a brief spoiler-free section and then continuing on into heavy, heavy spoilers.  1314
