The Penguin TV Show At Least Looks Good
This in-production teaser trailer for The Penguin TV show arrived last week, when HBO Max announced the change to their subscription service. I don’t really know what to make of this show yet, but it looks good, at the very least.
Colin Farell obviously disappears into the makeup, as we all know. And the character seems really cool. But what’s this show gonna be? Just the Penguin being a dangerous gangster guy? He doesn’t have a family, and I doubt they’re going to put him in therapy like an obvious Sopranos rip-off. So what’s this show gonna feature? And didn’t we just get a show starring the Penguin? Wasn’t that what Gotham was about? It was half about the Penguin, surely, right?
Anyway, I still think they should have made a Gotham Central TV show. That would have been killer!
Here’s that Sweet Mario Kart Parody Trailer from SNL
I don’t have much to share this Monday, with no new movie trailers or anything of that nature to talk about. So how about we just watch that sweet, gritty Mario Kart parody trailer from Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Does anybody still watch that show live on Saturday nights?
This is fun stuff. Great work by the graphics department at SNL, for sure. And Pedro Pascal kills it as gritty Mario. I’m loving The Last of Us on HBO, like everybody else. And this was a great parody for pull off for Pascal’s guest appearance on SNL. Obviously, this isn’t the first gritty, post-apocalyptic Mario re-imagining on the internet, but it’s fun when some actual work goes into it from a major media outlet.
Sexy Harley Quinn Valentine’s Day Special!
I very much enjoy the Harley Quinn cartoon. It’s funny, raunchy, silly and full of comic book goodness. It’s the best animated Batman-verse in years, if not decades. And while we wait for the fourth season, there’s going to be a one-off Valentine’s Day special next month. And it’s gonna be sexy!
Can’t wait to watch. And now you all know that it’s happening, so you can’t blame me if you miss it. Just keep your eyes peeled to HBO Max on Feb. 9.
The Last of Us Will Hopefully Be A Good Show
We got a full trailer for the upcoming The Last of Us TV show, and while it’s a fun trailer, it’s not as good as that moody, musical first trailer we got. But hey, the show still looks good, with some quality CGI fungus zombies to entertain us.
I have high hopes for this show — just like I have high hopes for most shows — and I expect good things. I’m hoping they fit the entire first game into the first season, but they’ll probably split it in half or something. Or maybe we’ll get 11 long seasons like The Walking Dead. I don’t know. We’ll find out!
The Last of Us comes to HBO on Jan. 15…which is a little more than a month away! Wow!
Awww man, I forgot Monday. Oh well, here’s a Doom Patrol trailer
I dunno. I think perhaps I’ve been a little distracted lately? Or just lazy? Who can tell anymore. I simply forgot to post something on Monday. I try to go for Mondays, because people could use something to kill 5 minutes of their time. And this trailer for Doom Patrol season 4 should suffice in that regard!
Doom Patrol is a fun show, and it seems they’re really leaning into the weirdness as they get older. I’m all for it. Get weird, get crazy, get creative, be Doom Patrol. Simple as that!
The new season of Doom Patrol comes to HBO Max on Dec. 8.
