Today’s my birthday and I was feeling rather lazy, but then remembered I didn’t post anything yesterday! So how about some trailers for some upcoming awesome stuff on Netflix? I’m not getting paid by Netflix to post this, I just really enjoy trailers.
Between Two Ferns: The Movie looks particularly funny.
And while I wasn’t too thrilled with the first season of Disenchantment, you best believe I’ll watch season 2. Neither The Simpsons or Futurama were perfect right out of the gate.
As for my birthday, I’m off to get my free Grand Slam meal from Denny’s. Because that’s how I choose to roll.
God damn you all to Hell! Kevin Smith has announced that he’s going to showrun a Netflix revival of the original Masters of the Universe cartoon from the 1980s. Not a reboot, but a continuation of wherever that original He-Man cartoon left off. Ridiculous.
It’s going to be called Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
First of all, what a dumb name. Could you be any more generic? Did someone not like Masters of the Universe: Vengeance?
Second of all, who really cares or remembers how the original 1980s cartoon left off? I watched that cartoon as lovingly as I watched all the other 80s cartoons and I don’t care one lick! I know that original Masters of the Universe fans still exist, but come oooon. Are those few people really so passionate as to catch Netflix’s attention? So much so that it has to be a continuation and not a reboot?
Third of all, I’m just really salty that this garbage is probably going to supersede He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cast joining the amazing She-Ra and the Princesses of Power cartoon. I just did a List of Six about this, people! That’s supposed to be part of the She-Ra endgame!
Finally we arrive at some Comic-Con trailers I actually care about! First up is The Witcher TV show coming to Netflix. Like most people, I am a huge fan of The Witcher video games, with The Witcher 3 being one of the greatest, most in-depth I have ever played. But the show is going to be based on the books, which I have no tread.
At least Henry Cavill looks better in motion than he did in the early photographs. This show could have all the goodness!
Next up is a Steven Universe made-for-TV movie, which looks awesome! And it delivers the one thing I want most from Steven Universe: letting him grow up. Steven is a such a great character that it annoys me that he was forced to stay kid-like. They had an episode explaining that his body just didn’t age like a normal person. That is so weird and lame.
Steven is a character that I want to see grow up. Steven’s growing maturity was the best part of the show, and I want that taken to normal, natural levels. But if you go much further, he’ll be an adult in a weird kid body, and that’s just weird. Movie trailer looks good, though.
And so the Marvel Netflix Defenders era has come to a quiet, whimpering end. The writing has been on the wall for a long time, and the final season of Jessica Jones has dropped. We don’t go out with a big, grand, Defenders reunion. Just a quiet, emotional episode of one of the top shows. Goodbye, my friends.
TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good.
Once upon a time, I did a List of Six of the things I wanted to see in the Netflix Defenders shows, back when they were first announced. I got most of what I wanted, so that’s nice. But overall, the shows were more disappointing than we all expected them to be. They were largely good, I think. And history will be kind to a lot of what happened. As for the final season of Jessica Jones, I liked it.
Join me after the jump for my full thoughts on the final season! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the whole season!
The third season of Stranger Things comes out on July 4 — and it should be pretty great! I’m a big Stranger Things fan and am very much looking forward to the new season. Check out this cool final trailer!
Looks awesome! Bring on the craziness!
Also, that’s the same weekend as Spider-Man: Far From Home. What an exciting time to be alive!
