‘Harley Quinn’ Advanced Review

A little while ago, DC Universe sent out what may be, the funniest press email ever seen. In it, they announced that the press would be granted access to the entire first season for their upcoming series Harley Quinn. They also mentioned that, while they’re apparently not as funny as Flebag, they’re “objectively eligible for ...

The Mandalorian: ‘Chapter One’ Review

At last, Disney+ has arrived, and with it, comes their flagship series, The Mandalorian.

‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ Advanced Review

Let’s go back in time, January 20, 2006. Disney is premiering the highly anticipated movie High School Musical, and to say five-year-old me lost her mind watching this movie is slight understatement. I lived and breathed these movies as a child – and the two others that would premier in the following years. So when ...

‘Carnival Row’ Season Review

Since the Game of Thrones finale in May, we’ve all been on the hunt for a new high fantasy series and Amazon may have just given us an option for our replacement in the form of Carnival Row. The main storyline in Carnival Row plays out almost like a supernatural version of Criminal Minds. Set ...

‘The Boys’ Season 1 Advanced Review

The Boys is an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ deconstruction of the superhero genre. The series first season is an excellent exploration of superheroes as a concept, unchecked capitalism, and the price for revenge. The titular Boys exist in a world riddled with superheroes, all under the control of Vought International. They are humanities last defense when ...

‘Swamp Thing’ Advanced Review

*This is a spoiler-free advance review of episodes one and two of DC Universe’s Swamp Thing* Regardless of what one may think of DC’s streaming service, it does offer creators an outlet to tell more experimental stories using established characters. This was best seen in the meta-fictional and quirky stories being told in Doom Patrol, ...

‘Doom Patrol’ Pilot Advanced Review

On February 15th, some of the world’s strangest superheroes will debut in their own self-titled series from the DC Universe streaming service.

‘The Punisher’ Season 2 Advanced Review

This is a spoiler-free review of all 13 episodes of the second season of Marvel's The Punisher.  What makes a man into a monster?
