Arrow Season 5 Returns with a Vengeance

Arrow Season 5 Review – Full Spoilers Alert

Arrow Season 5 is a return to form. The many strengths and high-points outshine the weaknesses. On the other hand, the major problems with Season 4 overshadowed the good moments. Often what happens is when a season finishes strong it shapes how people feel about the season as a whole. Some people talk about Season 1 as being a good overall season which I mostly agree with. But when looking at other sites, the review scores didn’t pick up until the latter half of Season 1. With Season 5, not only did it stick it’s landing it was consistently solid, more or less, after the first few episodes.

Netflix’s crime thriller ‘Ozark’ goes to town on dirty money

The positive buzz for Netflix series Ozark piqued my interest. I’m in the middle of catching up on The Sopranos so I wasn’t necessarily looking for another crime and family centric drama. But after checking out the pilot to see if it would be something I’d like I became addicted. The pilot is very good, one of the best pilots I’ve seen in a while. I ended up finishing the rest of the 10 episode season in less than a week.

Ozark hits the mark on what you’d expect from a crime thriller. One lie can cost you everything. And one lie can lead to another and then another. Jason Bateman plays Marty Byrde, a Chicago-based financial adviser who must save his and his family’s lives by moving to Lake Ozark and launder $500 million dollars in 5 years. Where some crime stories are about a heist or stealing money, Byrde must spend cold hard cash by the barrel full.

Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 1 “Dragonstone” Review

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.

The Biggest Problem with Netflix’s Iron Fist

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.
