After a long and rocky road that saw The Inhumans go from being a scheduled big screen tentpole film for Marvel Studios to being tossed aside for other characters like (the re-acquired from Sony) Spider-Man and The Black Panther, the property landed at ABC as a TV show. And after a couple of bad official photo releases and a less than overwhelming teaser we finally get the first full trailer for the show and it aint good. So join me as I point out what is wrong with The Inhumans show and the one thing that they seem to have gotten right.
As a big old nerd I wholeheartedly recognize and appreciate that the realm of genre (science fiction, fantasy, horror, action/adventure) TV has always been very progressive and ahead of the curve in pop culture when it comes to LGBTQ representation and over the years I have become a major fanboy of many of the LGBTQ characters that have appeared on those TV shows. So in honor of LGBTQ Pride Month I figured I’d share some of that love with this list of my favorite characters from some of my favorite TV shows.
Summer time is almost here and you know what that means: lots of sitting on the couch in front of the boob tube (with a tall glass of lemonade) catching all of the cool new and returning shows that the networks are going to be putting out during the humid months! The outside is full of cancer causing sunshine and malicious bugs out to give you lyme disease…stay inside where its safe under the warm glow of the television. Now click onward to see which shows I will be setting my DVR to record this summer.
In its first season on CBS, SUPERGIRL was a light and airy show that featured lots of “Girl Power!” that was a nice alternative to the more testosterone heavy fare on the other DC shows that were airing on Fox and The CW. With the move to The CW in its 2nd season I was pretty excited since that meant crossovers with ARROW, THE FLASH AND LEGENDS OF TOMORROW would be much easier to get done than they were when SUPERGIRL was on another network. And that was proven by just how enjoyable the “Invasion” crossover turned out to be. But aside from that blip of awesome, the 2nd season of SUPERGIRL has been a chore to get through and since I am the type of guy who likes to share my opinion…click onward to find out exactly why SUPERGIRL really does suck now.
Whenever an actor leaves the role of The Doctor on DOCTOR WHO the speculation about who will be the replacement actor reaches a serious fever pitch. Since Peter Capaldi made it known that he would be leaving the role the gossip has tagged everyone from Tilda Swinton to Chiwetal Ejiofor as the next Doctor. Just this past week alone there have been “breaking news” stories claiming that has been filled already. First up being reported as the new Doctor was Kris Marshall (finally a ginger!) known for his roles in the film LOVE ACTUALLY and the TV show DEATH IN PARADISE but that bit of “news” was quickly followed-up with the breaking report that CHEWING GUM creator and star Michaela Coel was going to be the 13th Doctor. So basically all reports are just rubbish gossip and the role is still waiting to be filled. With that in mind I present to you my own picks for who I think would make wonderful additions to the list of actors who have played the role of The Doctor.
It’s the 20th anniversary of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER the TV show and with that in mind I got to thinking about listsicle after listicle I could write like I was a Buzzfeed staffer. And lo and behold, my first list is about the most controversial aspect of Buffy fandom: which of her leading men was the best guy for our Slayer.
