Spoilers Ahead on Game Of Thrones Season 7, Episode 3
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)
Starring: Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, Christian Navarro, Justin Prentice, Kate Walsh, Alisha Boe, Derek Luke
“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.
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.
