Westworld is Looking Freaky

Will I be watching the new season of Westworld on HBO? Probably! Will I remember what the heck is even going on? Probably not!

We are overflowing with good TV options these days, but the old standbys are still delightful. Westworld has been largely good across three seasons, but I never remember what the heck is going on or what’s going to happen. And the new full trailer doesn’t help in the least. But a show is a show, you know?

Westworld season 4 arrives on Sunday!

TV Trailers Out the Wazoo!

I’ve been sitting on a bunch of TV show trailers for no particular reason other than to take up time on a Monday. And guess what? It’s a Monday! So on the off chance you haven’t seen any of these yet, enjoy some trailers for some upcoming big ticket TV shows.

First up is the trailer for the third season of the Umbrella Academy.

Love this show, love how season 3 looks. I never read the comics so I don’t know if we’re still following existing stories or if the TV show is off on its own road. Doesn’t matter to me. It’s all good, and season 3 should be just as good as the rest. Everybody on the team seems to be on the same page, so at least they won’t be butting heads the whole season.

Umbrella Academy returns to Netflix on June 22.

Next, how about we take a peak at the upcoming fourth season of Westworld!

I will probably watch Westworld, but I can’t be sure. I barely remember what happened in season 3, and I definitely barely remember what the larger, ongoing narrative has been. I’m pretty sure I liked season 3, but again, I honestly don’t remember. Did I even finish the season?

Whatever the case may be, Westworld season 4 comes to HBO Max on June 26.

Finally, the first trailer for the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon.

Honestly, I have no interest in this show. I loved Game of Thrones as much as the next person. Heck, I’m even one of those rare weirdos who was perfectly content with the final seasons and the finale. It all ended perfectly fine by me. But a prequel? Set thousands of years in the past? And is basically a story we already know from Game of Thrones? No thank you.

I just don’t know what this show can possibly offer. A bunch of Targaryen in-fighting? And some less-memorable CGI dragons? It feels so desperate.

But what do I know? I’ll probably watch it eventually.

House of the Dragon comes to HBO Max on Aug. 21.

6 Thoughts on the First Season of Peacemaker

Welp, here we are. After all the movies, all the drama, all the weird plans and random spin-offs. After all the acting controversies and reboots and new directions. After all that stuff, we finally have the best thing to come out of the DC Expanded Universe, and it’s a TV show about Peacemaker. How did this even happen?

TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!

I’ll be frank, I’m not the biggest fan of the DCEU. I don’t particularly like Zack Snyder’s various Justice League movies, and I endlessly chortle at DC’s failure to ape the winning formula of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But I’ve watched it all, because I’m a sucker for superheroes, and I can confidently declare that Peacemaker is as good as it gets. There’s even a very strong chance that I’ve enjoyed Peacemaker more than every Marvel TV show so far. Blasphemy, I know, but Peacemaker is that damn good (I’ll probably walk back that claim pretty quickly in the long run). Peacemaker is damn fine TV and I’m so glad more seasons have already been ordered.

Join me after the jump for my full thoughts and review of the first season of Peacemaker. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the series as a whole. And feel free to share your own thoughts/review in the comments!

The Peacemaker TV Show Looks Dope

The Peacemaker TV show is coming out in a week, and it looks cool as heck! I loved The Suicide Squad on the big screen, and knowing that James Gunn produced this spin-off show means great things. So enjoy this new trailer.

This show just looks bigger and weirder and funnier with each passing trailer. Will it live up to its own hype? Only time will tell…time being next week! Peacemaker comes to HBO Max on Jan. 13.

Give Peacemaker a Chance

There’s a new trailer out for the upcoming Peacemaker TV show on HBO Max and this whole thing looks like a hoot and a half! I loved The Suicide Squad movie this past summer, and I definitely look forward to more of that same wildness on my TV screen.

I am always down for fun new comic book content on TV. I have loved all of Marvel’s Disny+ shows — and am currently loving Hawkeye — so if DC wants to give it a try of taking big screen characters and actors and putting them into fun TV shows, I am all for it! Give me more content! Give me more things to watch!

Peacemaker arrives for our viewing pleasure on Jan. 13.
