So we have some casting news about the Shadow and Bone/Six of Crows series coming to Netflix and it looks really good. But it does lead to probably my biggest personal hang- up in YA fantasy casting adaptations.
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…
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.
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.

The first I heard of this movie was from the descendants of the lawmen talking about how nice it was to see this story from their side. When I jumped over to Netflix for the preview that, and the cast, was good enough to get me watching something I otherwise might not have bothered with.
What do a highly advertised first-class musical festival that never happened and a game-changing medical start-up company have in common?
Well, felonies for one big thing.
I finish the whole of the Shadow and Bone series this month! I didn’t love it but I am really excited about a Netflix series to come. Holy crap. Nikolai and the Darkling are going to get cast…
And I’m going to realize how wrong my head canon was because I always age people up but that’s a story for another time. This is about what did I learnt from my journey in the Grisha-verse.
The Christmas Chronicles
Directed by: Clay Katis
So Christmas/Holiday themed movies can be very hit or miss for me. I have certain things I don’t like that (almost all) the television movies fall victim to. Hell, they don’t just fall victim to it they embrace the tropes and wring them out until there’s nothing left but sad little tissues on the ground crying, “Just because it’s Christmas maybe you shouldn’t have married the guy you only knew for a week…”
But I digress.
Daredevil Season Three will likely go down as the quickest I’ve ever binge watched anything. Four days. I couldn’t stop. It was, for me, the very definition of addictive.Continue reading “Daredevil vs. Kingpin”
The Crown Season 2
The Crown apparently thinks its alright to mention Phillip going and getting drunk with the Queen Mum and Tommy Lascelles and not actually show us… Like come on! In a season fairly heavy on inner personal turmoil that’s the stuff I want to see!
