6 Thoughts on the First Season of Hawkeye

I’m a couple of weeks late with this list, but time and the holidays make fools of us all. The first season of the Hawkeye TV show on Disney+ came and went and it was an utter delight! Marvel Studios is doing a wonderful job adapting their movie characters into TV shows, and I have enjoyed every one — especially Hawkeye. From just liking Clint Barton on the big screen, to looking forward to the introduction of Kate Bishop, I had high hopes for the Hawkeye show from the very beginning. And it lived up to the hype and then some.

TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.

I will admit that these Marvel shows aren’t all grand and wonderful television. There are shows that are more dramatic and engaging, shows that are more inventive. But in terms of creating enjoyable TV shows out of MCU characters and properties, these Disney+ shows — and especially Hawkeye — are doing a great job. They’re hugely fun, very entertaining, and use the characters in fun and cool ways. I think Marvel Studios is nailing it in their quest to expand onto the small screen, and I really look forward to the movies and shows interacting and intersecting even more. The pandemic pumped the brakes on that, but it’s only a matter of time.

Join me after the jump for my full thoughts/review of the Hawkeye TV show. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the show! And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/25/21

Merry Christmas, everybody! It’s that magical sort of year when Christmas falls on a Saturday, coinciding with my comic book reviews! If you’re reading this on Christmas Day, more power to you! We had some nice comics this week, though everything is overshadowed by the stellar artistic achievements of the new issue of Nightwing.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #87 for an artistic achievement that will hopefully go down in legend.

Behold this thing of sheer beauty

Meanwhile, I loved the Hawkeye finale and will have a review up one of these days. It was quite joyous, and accomplished everything I could have wanted. Hawkeye is probably my second favorite of the Marvel shows right now, I enjoyed it that much. I also tried the first issue of Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit this week and it was not for me. It’s not terrible, but it’s a little wonky.

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #82, Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #2, Nightwing #87 and X-Men: Trial of Magneto #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/27/21

Happy American Thanksgiving, everyone! I thought there’d be less comics this week, but nope, a full load! And while last week was everything but Marvel Comics, this week is only Marvel Comics! Such is what happens when I haphazardly read random comics from a variety of sources. So we’ve got a new issue of X-Men and a new Kate Bishop comic!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #19 for another fun issue setting up a new, hopefully fun story. The lack of Throg, however, is very disappointing.

Not even breaketh a sweat

Meanwhile, speaking of Kate Bishop, I very much enjoyed the first two episodes of the Hawkeye TV show. I thought her character was great, and makes for a nice team with Clint Barton. That should be a fun show. The first few episodes of Netflix’s live action Cowboy Bebop have also been fun. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for TV shows right now! So many things to watch!

Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #79, Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #1, Thor #13 and X-Men #5.

A Little Bit More Hawkeye

The Hawkeye TV show is about a month away or so, and while we don’t have a second trailer, we have a new TV spot with a bit more footage. I’ll take anything at this point, because I am very excited for the Hawkeye TV show. It could and should be a lot of fun!

This bit also reveals that we’ll get the first two episodes premiering on the same day, so that’s even more awesome! I am really hyped for this show and am hoping hoping hoping for the best. Kate Bishop should be great, Clint Barton is already great and obviously we all want to see more of Rogers: The Musical. May it all live up to our loftiest dreams!

Hawkeye arrives on Disney+ on Nov. 24.

The First Hawkeye Trailer Has Arrived!

The Hawkeye TV show arrives at the end of November, so it’s a good two months away. Sounds like the perfect time to release the first trailer! And it’s super fun!

Rogers: The Musical? Are you kidding me? That’s hilarious! Love it. Jeremy Renner is great in this trailer, and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop seems super fun! There’s not enough Pizza Dog. And the trailer seems just a little bit dark? What’s up with that?

Either way, the show looks great in this first peak. I have high hopes for this one, as I’ve had for every Marvel TV show. You can check out my previous List of Six on what I hope to see in the show. And perhaps rewatch the trailer, because it’s fun!

Hawkeye arrives on Disney+ on Nov. 24 for a six-episode season.
