There Gets to Be Some Peace on The Walking Dead!

SDCC has revealed a big trailer for the new season of The Walking Dead — which I am watching, without regret. I still enjoy the show.

MAJOR COMIC BOOK SPOILERS BELOW THIS VIDEO.

SPOILERS

I am excited for this new season. I like the characters on The Walking Dead and I want them to have some happiness. So I’m very pleased to see that the new season will take after the comics.

In the comics, there is a 2-year time jump following the defeat of Negan, and Rick Grimes and his pals rebuild a little society. All the communities are working together. There’s peace. It’s awesome! I hope we get to see a lot of that in the new season, though clearly the show has some drama and conflict planned. I can live with that.

And the end of the trailer reveals that the next big threat, The Whisperers, are right around the corner. Not sure how the show will deal with them with Rick and Carl gone. But I have faith.

More SDCC Trailers Give Us Doctor Who and a Really Bad Ninja Turtles

I am just one man, blogging, while also at my day job. There’s a very good chance I won’t get to everything that comes out this weekend from San Diego Comic-Con. But I can post a new trailer like anybody’s business! And these are a bunch that arrived last night!

First up, a proper teaser trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodie Whittaker. I like this much better than the quickie we got earlier in the week. We get some actual Doctor in this one, some real personality.

Next up is a story trailer for the Spider-Man game coming to Playstation 4 on Sept. 7. Now that I actually own a Playtation 4, I’m actually very excited about this game. So any new look at what we’re going to get is exciting.

Even if it still runs the risk of being a bad game. We’ll see.

Another trailer we got is a look at the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I quite enjoyed that cartoon, and I guess enough fans did as well that Disney is bringing it back for another batch of brand new episodes!

Anything that gives us more Ahsoka Tano is good news to me! Even if the ultimate Ahsoka/Darth Vader showdown already exists.

Finally, we got another look at that new Ninja Turtles cartoon, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This first look also provides a couple minutes of actual episode. And I can honestly say I won’t be having anything to do with this show. It looks terrible.

That’s not to say I’m one of those bitter fans complaining about how this new show is killing my childhood. Not at all. I’m simply recognizing that this show is not meant for me, and therefore I won’t take part. The animation, the comedy, the entire style of the show is just not for me. But I wish everybody involved the best of luck and I hope their take on the Turtles is successful.

Be sure to keep returning to my blog today as I dutifully attempt to upload all of the trailers and news that I either can or care about.

SDCC Kicks Off With Scary Dark Titans Trailer!

I am very excited for live action Robin on the new TV show Titans. So I’m also very excited to see this thing for myself. Well the first trailer has arrived to kick off San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s dark and brutal as all hell!

It’s like…how do we go for the complete opposite of Teen Titans Go! on every conceivable level? I think it’s a bold choice, and not one I’m very confident that DC can pull off.

But hey, it’s a serious, live action Robin, so you better believe I’m going to give it a chance! This sort of thing only comes around once in a generation! Hopefully DC doesn’t screw it up like they did with Chris O’Donnell.

Also in SDCC news from DC Comics, Grant Morrison is coming back to write a police procedural Green Lantern comic, and I near about blew my lid! That is, like, everything I could possibly want from Green Lantern comics. I’m really excited about this one!

The New Doctor Who Teaser Teases Little

The new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodi Whittaker, arrives sometime this Fall. And the people at the BBC realized that the World Cup final would be a great place to debut the first real teaser for the new season! Unfortunately, the teaser doesn’t show much.

I suppose that’s fine for just being a teaser. We’re teased the Doctor doing stuff, we’re teased her smile, and we see her companions. Perhaps I’m just too eager for actual footage of Whittaker as the Doctor. And I can’t imagine I’m alone.

Still, like most fans, I’ll probably take whatever I can get.

Do Not Watch This New Only Leigh Cartoon, Unless…

In fact, don’t read anything I write about this Only Leigh cartoon unless you’re completely caught up on The Good Place TV show on NBC, starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson.

Only watch this Only Leigh cartoon if you have already watched both seasons of The Good Place and maybe Avengers: Infinity War. Only those people who have watched both should watch this cartoon.

And if you haven’t seen The Good Place, go watch it now. Trust me, it’s totally worth the watch and you do not want any spoilers. Then once you’ve watched it, you can come back here and enjoy this delightful video.

Honestly, I’m a little surprised. The normally impeccable Only Leigh, of whom I am a huge fan, didn’t need to go spoiling The Good Place like this. I’m all for sharing in the awesomeness of The Good Place, but that big twist is possibly the biggest, greatest twist in modern television, up there with the Red Wedding on Game of Thrones. All for just a bunch of OK Tony Stark jokes? Don’t get me wrong, it’s of the usual high Only Leigh quality, but that twist spoiler has got to be breaking some sort of unwritten rule.
