Spoilers Ahead on Game Of Thrones Season 7 Premiere
“Shall we begin?” Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere entitled “Dragonstone” is immensely satisfying. After an extra long hiatus, it’s just a treat to get back into the Game of Thrones universe. The producers have promised a faster pace. One down and only 6 more to go this season. Even though there wasn’t a tonne of action in this premiere, the measured pace felt perfect for what it was trying to achieve. Okay, maybe for some viewers the pot montage is a bit much, I found it amusing.
Iron Fist Season 1 Review (Minor Spoilers)
Starring: Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, David Wenham, Rosario Dawson
Iron Fist is loaded with possibilities. Marvel’s latest Defender has a built-in Netflix audience and the advantage of seeing how to construct a superhero TV show off the momentum of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Looking back at Season 1, it’s evident that Iron Fist is inconsistent, uninspired and deeply flawed.
13 Reasons Why Season 1 Review (Non Spoilers)

“13 Reasons Why” is a Netflix series centered on adolescents and the issues they face. Cyberbullying, mental health, teen suicide, slut shaming and sexual assault are some of the hot button topics this slickly produced drama/mystery is built around.
Take a look at what the Negan painting looks like. And the winner is …
Jaccendo and Cibarra’s Art want to give fans a chance to win one very cool prize: a Glow-in-the-Dark painting of The Walking Dead’s Negan.
Get ready for Season 7 with the launch of “Which Major Walking Dead Character Did Negan Kill?” contest.
The identity of Negan’s victim(s) will be revealed in the Season 7 premiere.
Could there be more than one victim? The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman addresses the rumours, “I don’t know that our audience is necessarily bloodthirsty enough to be wanting to hear that there’s another death.
“One death should be enough for this audience and one death will definitely have the affect that we’re looking for. It will certainly set the stage for a very exciting season.”
Netflix’s supernatural drama Stranger Things will return for a second season in 2017. This is hardly a surprise announcement considering how many fans and critics have positively responded to the 80’s nostalgia series.
Some interesting new details have emerged on the second season. What we know is that it will stay true to the tone and characters from the first season. At the same time, the focus is on thoughtfully expanding the world, including the addition of new multi-generational characters and a new dark force.
If you heard anything about the Netflix drama Stranger Things about a young boy in a small town disappearing under creepy, otherworldly circumstances, it puts your knowledge of 80’s films to the test by referencing everything from E.T. to Akira and cherry picking elements from classic Stephen King stories.
What is it about great time travel stories that are so popular? Everyone has their own personal favorites and reasons. I like how there’s so many ideas and ways that a story can be explored through time travel. It also captures my imagination seeing how directors and storytellers envision what the future has in store for humanity.
There are a tonne of time travel series going on right now. 12 Monkeys and Continuum are two different kinds of time travel shows. What they have in common is that they are both filmed in Canada and air on Syfy network.
