The Punisher Season 1 Review:
Be warned of spoilers ahead …
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.
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)

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.
