TV Review: Titans Takes Super Hero TV To A New Level. Michelle’s Review

Rejoice DC Fans you finally have the Batman you’ve always wanted to see on television! Only it’s not Batman, it’s Robin and he is kicking so much ass that I was giggling like a schoolgirl. I didn’t talk about my reaction to the Comic-Con trailer in July because I was decidedly meh about it. My initial reaction was “Oh joy, a dark, grim, Robin…How original.” I brushed the show off as just going for the look at how edgy we are,“tee-hee, fuck Batman”. However, Titans is much more than that and I was blown away by how much I’m loving this show. The launch trailer did  not do the series justice.

Castle Rock Maintains Its Creep Factor to the Bitter End!
It took me awhile to get caught up on Castle Rock but it was a worthwhile endeavor. The show’s first season is a masterclass in generated maximum creepiness.

Famous In Love, Freeform’s Hollywood Fable Returns for S2! Michelle’s Review

FAMOUS IN LOVE – Freeform’s “Famous in Love” stars Charlie DePew as Jake, Georgie Flores as Cassandra, Bella Thorne as August, Niki Koss as Alexis, Keith Powers as Jordan, Carter Jenkins as Rainer, Pepi Sonuga as Tangey and Perrey Reeves as Nina. (Freeform/Nino Munoz)

I don’t talk enough about my love of Freeform  (formally ABC Family) – still hate the name change, because I suck and am lazy. It’s my go to channel whenever I want to watch something that’s non-fantasy or super hero related. Well, FreeForm and Investigation Discovery.  One of my obsessions last year was FreeForm’s “fantasy” drama Famous in Love. Famous in Love Season 2 returns Wednesday, April 3.

Krypton is the best thing SyFy has done in years. Yes, even better than the Expanse. This is high praise coming from someone who generally claims not to like sequels, while not so secretly I do. Krypton, the 10 episode Maxi series, debuts on SyFy channel this week, Wednesday, March 21, 2018. There’s something about this show that sucked me in almost instantly.

The X-Files (FOX, Wednesdays, 8/7C) returns with a second event series (10 episodes this time) this week, but gets off to a less than brilliant start with My Struggle III.

Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy! Happy! Is Disturbingly Wonderful!

HAPPY! – Nick Sax (Chris Meloni) – Photo courtesy of Syfy.

The only way a Grant Morrison comic could ever possibly work on television would be if he directly involved – his work is just not in the purview of the average (or even quality) TV writers/producers.
Happy! Was developed by Morrison and Brian Taylor (from the graphic novel by Morrison and Darick Robertson) – who just happens to be one of minds behind the Jason Statham hit Crank. It’s a writing marriage made in every heaven and several of the seven hells.

Things are rapidly coming to a head on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (BBC America, Saturdays, 9/8C) – last week we saw the arrival of the boat in Bergsberg and now we get to see something very special about The Boy. It’s not enough (for us) to put it all together, but it just might be Dirk.

Marvel’s The Punisher: Rage, Vengeance and PTSD!

Netflix’s latest Marvel series, The Punisher, is definitely not for the faint of heart. It’s a bloody, gory tale of reawakening and vengeance – in which Frank Castle (Marvel’s answer to Don Pendleton’s Mac Bolan novels) learns that he may have killed off the personnel who murdered his family, but they were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

In fact, their deaths came about as a direct result of unsanctioned CIA black ops in Afghanistan – in which Castle played an unwitting part.

The Good Place: Philosophical Comedy Continues to Be Awesome!

THE GOOD PLACE — Pictured: “The Good Place” Key Art — (Photo by: NBCUniversal)

The first season of The Good Place was brilliant just as a show about four people who got into The Good Place by mistakes and were trying to become better people to prevent their Neighborhood from falling apart – and then there was that season finale. Michael turned out to be a demon -practicing a new kind of torture.

Season Two seemed like it could present some problems if it ran a variation of that set up -instead, it gave hundreds of variations where Elinor and even Jason at one point figured out they were in The Bad Place.

Now, with the boss having warned Michael (Ted Danson) that reboot 2 (in reality reboot #802) is his last chance – and Janet (D’Arcy Carden) is causing the Neighborhood to glitch because she’s still in love with Jason.
