In addition, the CW ordered a full season for One Tree Hill.  Read more »

Iron Fist is a not a terrible show. It‘s just not a good show either. The last part of Netflix‘s upcoming Defenders crossover arrives and quickly establishes itself as being aggressively uninteresting. Iron Fist isn‘t quite laughably bad; it is just painfully boring and bland which is due almost entirely to its main character. Iron Fist is a disappointing step back for Netflix‘s Marvel series. Read more »

Unlike everything else in Netflix‘s Marvel line-up, The Punisher was not a part of some big plan. Although the character appeared in Daredevil season 2, there was never a sense that he was meant to spin-off into his own series or even appear in the crossover series, The Defenders. Yet, thanks in large part to the popularity and caliber of Jon Bernthal‘s performance, Frank Castle now has his own series. This uniqueness permeates the series as The Punisher makes several significant changes to the standard Netflix / Marvel formula. Some are for the better and some aren‘t quite as successful, but they all give The Punisher an identity of its own. Read more »
