Umbrella Academy Delivers Some Creative Quarantine Marketing

I liked the first season of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix. It was a fun little show, and I’m looking forward to season 2. It’ll be here sooner than we think, thanks to this nifty quarantine trailer which sees the various actors stuck at home.

But stuck at home dancing, in a callback to that nice little dance bit from the first season.

I liked that scene as much as the next person! And I think it’s really clever to have the actors recreate it while quarantined at home as a teaser trailer for season 2. That’s just fun. We’re all in this together, including actors, and they still need to promote the new material coming out. It’s good stuff stuff!

Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy arrives on Netflix on July 31.

Oh Hey, Check Out This Trailer for Space Force!

I’ve been sitting on this trailer for a week or so now, just waiting for a lazy Friday to throw it up and let everyone enjoy. It’s for Space Force, the new Steve Carell/Greg Daniels joint project coming to Netflix at the end of the month. Looks funny, and I like funny!

I was a huge fan of The Office way back in the day, when it was actually airing on regular, network TV. So I’m excited to see some of those creative people give us another funny workplace comedy. I’m a fan of the genre, especially when applied to weird topics.

Have you seen Death of Stalin yet? That’s also on Netflix, and it is an hilariously dark and bleak workplace comedy about the titular death of Josef Stalin. Highly recommended.

Space Force lands on May 29, which will be here before we know it.

I Am Ready for the End of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

I am as surprised as the next person at how much I love She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. But it is a damn good show, one of my absolute favorites on all of Netflix. I am in love with how well-crafted, how well-adapted this show has been these past few years, with some truly glorious cartoon adventures.

The fifth and final season will be upon us in only a matter of days.

Oh man, that was a fun trailer! I loved the slow, somber remix of the theme song. I loved the anguish in the characters. This is gonna be a battle! This is gonna be a good finale! I have very high hopes!

The final season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power arrives on May 15!

I’m Gonna Give Extraction a Try

Stuck at home with little to do, I’m always up for something new to watch. So how about that new Chris Hemsworth movie on Netflix? It’s called Extraction and it’s on Netflix now.

I’m gonna watch it sometime today, probably. Or maybe I’ll fall asleep on my couch again. It’s really up in the air at this point in self-quarantine.

There’s a New Pendleton Ward Cartoon Called The Midnight Gospel!

Pendleton Ward is the genius creator behind Adventure Time, so he’s got a good reputation for quality cartoons, as far as I’m concerned. Little did I know, he has a new series out on Netflix called The Midnight Gospel! It came out yesterday!

I was vaguely aware of The Midnight Gospel, but I hadn’t explored the show because it looked a little too weird to me. It still looks too weird for my tastes. I’m not one for trippy, dream-sequence television. But Pendleton Ward has more than earned my trust when it comes to making shows that matter, so I’mma gonna check it out and see if it’s any good! I suggest you do the same.
