Lucifer Season 4 Due on DVD

I got Netflix to be able to watch Lucifer season 4 when it debuted there last year, because the show is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I realized I had a problem with binging, though. I went through the episodes so quickly that a couple of weeks later, I didn’t remember much of what happened. It’s easy enough to rewatch, of course, or I could just get the complete season of 10 episodes on DVD later this year. Lucifer: […]

Superman to Play Sherlock Holmes

Poor Henry Cavill – he’s going to be known as Superman the rest of his life. And I’m not helping. They’re making an Enola Holmes movie, inspired by the six-volume young adult book series by Nancy Springer in which the pre-teen sister of Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes runs away and solves mysteries. I’m familiar with it because IDW has been putting out graphic novel adaptations; The Case of the Missing Marquess and The Case of the Left-Handed Lady have been […]

Two More Marvel TV Shows Cancelled

Unsurprisingly, the Disney/Fox acquisition continues to have fallout (as is expected when such big deals are done — since the money has to come from somewhere and finances and plans are often reexamined post-merger). Jeph Loeb used to be in charge of the Marvel Television division, but now Marvel movie honcho Kevin Feige has taken over. There were plans for four Marvel animated series to come to Hulu (also owned by Disney), but two have been cancelled according to the […]

Resident Alien Trailer Plays Up Comedy

The Resident Alien TV series announced almost a year ago now has a trailer. While the show was described in terms of a “moral dilemma”, and I speculated it might resemble a procedural, this short video, as you might expect from a show starring Alan Tudyk, plays up the comedy. But then, they’re plugging “from the humans behind Family Guy and Wedding Crashers“, so yeah. The show is “coming this summer” on Syfy. It’s based on the comic book series […]

Happy winter holiday of your choice! 1. This lovely bit of house porn, accomplished through residence swapping, covers more winter celebrations than just Christmas, but it’s flawed by its refusal to solve its central romantic complication.

Valiant Releases Trailer for Bloodshot, Their First Movie

Like any corporate comic publisher, Valiant really wants to be making movies. Their first film, Bloodshot, opens in February 2020, and the trailer is now available. (Update: The release date for the movie is now March 13, 2020.) I previously didn’t know anything about the character, but (and given the name, this shouldn’t surprise me) he looks like a memory-wiped super-soldier type, a magically healing violent weapon who wants to discover the truth about his past. So casting Vin Diesel […]

After Delay, Wynonna Earp Resumes Production

Wynonna Earp — the TV show airing on Syfy, produced by IDW, and based on a comic series — ran into some snags earlier this year. Production was delayed on the upcoming fourth season, and speculation had it that it was due to money problems at IDW Entertainment. However, in early July, it was announced that production was greenlit to start this fall, with Season 4 airing in Summer 2020. IDW was aided by more money from Syfy as “the […]

Good Omens

If anyone’s left around here, you may have wondered where I’ve been for the past week or more. I became completely obsessed with Good Omens, which dropped six hour-long episodes on Amazon prime video at the end of May. I’ve already watched it three times so far — once straight through, once just for more of the Boyfriends (and to better understand the setup for a plot twist), and once to share with friends. (Brunch party, with red wine for […]
