Trying Out The New Virtual PC Gaming Service: Shadow

Expand

I have a set amount of money I can use for subscriptions. And I put a few of those $15/month services on hold so that I can check out Shadow, a credible virtual gaming platform. I’m sonic it solely to play WWE 2K19 from anywhere. Normally $50/month, I’m taking advantage of the Christmax deal and doing a month for $26.

Of All The WWE’s Properties, This Has Been The Year of NXT

Expand

To be honest, I haven’t watched WWE programming consistently in years. Raw and Smackdown has focused more on storyline drama and not the simulated sport. But their developmental show, NXT has been getting better and better each year. Luckily I don’t have to pay for the WWE Network to see the show since Hulu streams the show a day after it airs. Classic matches every single week, Pay Per Views that consistently outshines the other WWE specials and an aggressive workload that ‘feels’ like a sports show.. something the other WWE shows has forgotten to do.

This piece of comic book awesomeness was schedule to debut on the SyFy Channel on January 16th. But looks like they really want us to go all-in on this adaptation of Rick Remender’s boarding school for assassins graphic novel. This is a Russo Brothers creation so lets hope it’s a special holiday present for us.

Netflix’s Bird Box Feels Like M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening. But If It Was Done The Right Way

Expand

This movie came out of nowhere! Netflix seems to be pushing new content on a daily basis. So much that Bird Box totally flew under my radar. It has star power, a good script and a great premise, similar to The Happening. Some unknown force is causing people to kill themselves, but I’m sure it won’t be plants this time around.

After A Disappointing First Season, Star Trek Discovery Brings in Classic Trek Characters and Amps Up The Cinematic Splendor for Season 2

Expand

I don’t know if it was fan expectations or all the rumors of production problems, but it seems like Star Trek Discovery didn’t do so well in its first season. Personally, I enjoyed the first season a lot. True, it wasn’t classic Trek and the whole prime timeline seemed a little off, but story-wise it was pretty good. I was waiting for them to pull the trigger on Section 31. It looks like we’ll get this in the upcoming season.

Amidst Serious Problems, Star Trek Discovery Gets Ready for Season 2

Expand

There seems to be a lot of problems with the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. A lot of backstage turmoil,  fired show runners and coarse corrections situated with the show. The inclusion of the Starship Enterprise has been moved up the timeline in order to boost the ratings for the fledgling show. I’m still gonna watch it.

Travelers Preps For The 3rd and Final Season, Thanx To Netflix

Expand

I love time travel shows. Travelers is one of those Canadian imports that’s flown under the radar, but an excellent genre series. A group of warriors come back in time by inhabiting the bodies of present day people just before they’re suppose to die, and work in secret to try and change their apocalyptic future. After a shaky second season I’m hoping they wrap it all up in epic fashion.

Could Shadow Be The Future of Gaming

Expand

Cloud gaming has been an unrealized for a decade. And even though this Show cloud gaming service seems too good to be true, a lot of the real world reviews suggest this is the real deal. $35 gets you a fully functional Windows gaming PC in the cloud. You get full Windows 10 so you can download steam and play games on your desktop/laptop (Windows AND Mac), and your mobile tablet and phone. The subscription price seems pretty steep, but I’m really considering trying this out!

Can We Get A Proper X-Men Television Series Now?

Expand

as a long time X-Men disciple, the acquisition of Fox by Disney has kicked up some interesting possibilities for my favorite Marvel franchise. And I can say with love that the mutant universe hasn’t been at it’s best for a while. I jumped on board with the comics in the 90’s when Chris Claremont and Jim Lee were killing it. And I enjoyed the movie franchise as a pioneer in quality comic movies (before the MCU raised the bar). Because of licensing deals Marvel had to make to stave off bankruptcy in the late 90’s relinquishing any rights to creating films or tv shows, any chance of seeing the core members of the X-Men on TV. So what we’ve gotten have been a few x-men adjacent shows (Mutant X, Legion, and The Gifted). And even though the most recent shows have been excellent shows, it’s still not the same as having Cyclops and Jean Grey leading the original 5 against Magneto, or The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

But somehow, the planets have aligned and the prophecy has come to pass. The powerhouse media conglomerate that is Disney has signed a deal to acquire most of the media rights from Fox, bringing the X-Men, Fantastic Four and their family of characters back to Marvel. So now can we just do what everyone wants and put together a proper X-Men television series? No more, fringe mutants and subjective references to the main characters. Just put Professor X and his mutants in the School for Gifted Youngsters and have them fight a new villain every week. We can do the long-form story arcs later. Let’s just get the basic down and build the characters.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs Is Pure Coen Brothers Goodness

Expand

If it’s got the Coen Brothers name attach to it, I’m going to watch it. I haven’t been wrong yet.

Netflix Brings Us Season 3 of The Last Kingdom

Expand

I found this show after looking for alternatives to Game of Thrones. That’s how I got into Vikings, The Bastard Executioner and Marco PoloThe Last Kingdom had two great seasons, and I didn’t expect to get a third. But behold! Netflix comes through again giving us another season and possibly and satisfying ending to the series.
