Drogon

I’ll get to the dragon news but in already filming news have I been sleeping on the fact we’re getting a new adaptation of The Stand? It’s only my favorite King book and I actually really liked then 90’s miniseries.

How in the hell did I miss that?

Pirates, Treasure & Poor Decisions: Black Sails Season 1

Black Sails scenery

I went halfway through season one of Black Sails thinking what kind of idiots would follow these people? As though pirates were some bastion of good decisions. But truth be told by the end I totally would follow Captain Flint and Long John Silver on a search for Spanish treasure.

You  just have to get a couple of things clear first.

Circe News & Her Satanic Majesty: A July Wrap-Up

circe uk edition

In super exciting news Circe- which was one of my favorite reads in a very long time- got a straight-to-series order from HBO. I find the writers credits a bit of a mixed bag but the source material is so strong… oh, man I’m having de ja vu cause I am sure I said that before about another HBO series.

But what really matters is the casting…

Witches, Cats, Thrones & My Childhood Fav Returns

Henry Cavil in the Witcher

So Comic-Con is still bringing lots of trailers and information and we haven’t even hit Marvel yet. And there’s also that trailer that wasn’t at comic-con and I think I’ve finally made my peace with Game of Thrones- even that one lingering question that I’d still like an answer to.

The Sirens of Gotham & What’s Next for Harley

Gotham City Sirens

Gotham City Sirens

Possibly controversial opinion…

Between DC and Marvel I think DC has the better characters. I mean yeah the cinematic universe Marvel is better although DC has some good animated stuff and DC definitely has the better villains and anti-heroes in my humble opinion of course.

Halfway through 2019: A Little Look Backward & Forward

tenant and sheen in good omens

We made it to the half way point! Cheers to us!

Thinking back over all the entertainment books, television and films over the last couple of months all I can do is hope that there are some nice surprises to come. I mean don’t get me wrong there’s been some good stuff even some gems but nothing that really surprised me.

But there are definitely some great options ahead. Especially in books!

Steve, Monsters and 80’s Flashbacks: Stranger Things Final Trailer

Eleven faces Stranger Things 3

Stranger Things dropped its final trailer for season 3 and I am ready for the show and speculation!

Also I was only a kid in the 80’s but the fashion, the fashion! Mainly not fashions finest decade but I miss jelly sandals. I mean I have no doubt I could find them again but it wouldn’t be as fun. Anyway this seasons probably going to give me some strong flashbacks.
