Star Wars: Ahsoka

When it comes to all of the Star Wars shows that Disney is cranking out, I have mixed emotions. On one hand, I’m excited to see new stories in the Star Wars universe. But on the other, I always worry that these new tales might somehow overwrite or cheapen the adventures that I’ve come to know and love. So far,...

Star Wars: Andor

Andor was one of the first live-action series announced by Disney several years ago. Ever since, it has been the subject of much speculation. Obviously, the series was to focus on the character of Cassian Andor (introduced in the Rogue One film).

It Came From YouTube: Cobra Kai

For my second “It Came From…” entry, I’m going to change things up a bit. I’m jumping from Netflix to YouTube. That’s right, in case you weren’t aware, there actually is a paid version of YouTube called “YouTube Red”. Until recently, there was never a lot of discussion about it as a platform because… well, there was really nothing of...

New Feature: “It Came From Netflix…”

Today, I’m proud to announce a new feature on the site:  “It Came From Netflix…”  – This is the silly name for my long planned review of strange and wonderful things that can be found deep in the dark depths of the Netflix streaming library. Of course, there are other streaming services like Hulu that also carry some obscure and...
