  • Comedy Toknight: A Galavant Recommendation

    I don’t understand why more people don’t watch Galavant. I mean, I guess I do. Folks hear “musical” and they have already made up their mind about what kind of entertainment it is. They hear “musical television” and they get uncomfortable flashbacks of Glee and the Buffy special. They hear “musical television set in a medieval/fantasy setting” […]


  • The Animal Magnetism of “We Bare Bears”

    Fish out of water narratives aren’t exactly an untested trope, but when the water is San Francisco and the fish are an adopted family of three anthropomorphic bears à la the plot of “We Bare Bears,” something innovative and heartwarming happens.

The television show is […]

  • The Man Without Fear: Marvel’s “Daredevil” Trailer Review

    Recently returned to Marvel Studios and pushed into production is the first of many Netflix-partnered MCU titles, Daredevil. I know I’ve been a bit lackluster lately about new trailers that involve Marvel properties (despite my life-long love of the comics), but damn, this looks good. Sometimes I feel I’m the only person who liked the […]
