It’s that magical time of year again, where everyone’s favourite cannibal returns to TV. This year is the third run of the Bryan Fuller developed take on the classic Hannibal Lector character and it looks to take the show in a different direction, away from the Police procedural and more in line with what the novels and film are about.

So let’s talk a little about the seasons first episode. Continue reading

Three DC Finales, and One gets it right

DC Entertainment is a Division of Time Warner.

Its been a busy year for DC Comics, with four TV series going on around the same time. And while Constantine failed to attract a large enough audience, the three main shows; Gotham, Arrow and the Flash all ended up reacting their target numbers and getting another season order. That being said after 20 plus episodes each, only the Flash ended up getting it’s ending right. Let’s talk about that.

April is a crazy month for TV. With Mad Men returning, Arrow/Flash starting to wrap up and Game of Thrones starting a new season it’s almost easy to forget that Daredevil is out on Netflix. The first in a series of five Netflix Marvel titles set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Daredevil comes onto the scene with a lot of steam.

So with that said, here’s a First Impression of Netflix’s Daredevil.

First Impression: Ghost in the Shell: Arise

It seems you can’t turn a corner without seeing a remake. From America TV or theatres to even anime, older ideas are being brought back and tweaked to work for a new generation of fans. So it’s time for an anime classic like Ghost in the Shell to get it’s time to Arise (not cleaver).

(Editors Note: As this is a First Impression this is only based upon the series first episode)

So with the 35th Anniversary the series went back to the beginning with an OVA filling in some of the blanks of the original series backstory. Let’s talk about Mobile Suits, assassinations and deadly family feuds.

First Impression: iZombie

iZombie is produced by

iZombie is produced by Spondoolie Productions, Vertigo and Warner Bros. Television.

While Marvel has been taking the Movie world by storm, DC Comics and Warner Bros. have been using their many resources to stake their claim on the TV side. With four shows running on three networks (Constantine’s questionable future not with standing) and a few more on the way, it’s easy to forget a show like iZombie that has no attachment to the DC Universe.

Trying to appeal to another audience, this zombie related show launched this week without the pomp circumstance that most comics shows get. That being said, is it any good?

Let’s discuss over a bowl of brains and noodles.
