Deadline has posted the news that we probably all saw coming: Daredevil is dead at Netflix. With the Disney streaming service looming large and an almost always hungry for new original content audience, it’s not hard to jump to the conclusion we’ll see Daredevil, Luke Cage and the rest of the Netflix Marvel gang again soon. Particularly given that Disney/Marvel has done the exact opposite of WB/DC and has given viewers one contiguous cinematic universe.

I did not know sugar could molder.

That seemed like a waste of a perfectly good millstone…

Now I want to see what The Miniaturist sent the Meermans

How are they going to explain the baby, even with Otto returned?

Wait, so was there magic or not?

 

Why did Emily Berrington do that weird dutch accent when everyone else used British ones?

You S1E2 Last Nice Guy In New York Hot Take Recap

You S1E2 Last Nice Guy In New York Hot Take Recap

Joe is obviously a psychopath right? He’s basically post-grad Dan Humphries (because being Gossip Girl is pretty stalker craycray when you step back and look at it gross)

Looks like he might have an interesting backstory tho.

Oh Benji, you are so wrong. He is so a killer and you just don’t know you’re dead yet.

Rich people, amirite?

Except in Frankenstein you truly sympathize with the monster, this show notsomuch.

Oh Peach, you just put yourself in the crosshairs…

Who keeps the phone?? And leaves it on with the battery in it? This is obviously not Joe’s first rodeo, he’d know better.

Pretty sure I don’t like a single person on this show, Greg Bertilani you’ve let me down for once…

Don’t Let’s Start #003: The Comic I’ve Had The Longest

Don’t Let’s Start #003: The Comic I’ve Had The Longest

Contributor Bob Harrison posed the question in his first column here at Pop Culture Squad. Not what is the oldest comic in your collection, but rather what comic have you held onto the longest. I immediately knew my answer, and that it was 3 comics I had bought at the same time when I was in 3rd grade.

Now I don’t remember the actual date (I was 8 years old) but it was a snow day during the 1983/84 school year. Being raised by a single mother, snow days often meant I went to work with her when I was too young to stay home all day alone. At some point that day I walked from my mom’s office to the newstand around the corner and bought myself some books off the spinner rack. Zyn’s News & Cigars is still in the same spot on Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich Connecticut today.

I was a voracious reader even then and a rather precocious child. I say that not to toot my own horn, it’s a thing I heard adults say about me and it often didn’t seem like they meant it as a compliment; I say it because the books I bought were not exactly the Archies that society seemingly wanted me, a little girl, to be reading.

As I look back at the 3 books that are the subject of this column I see so much of the foundation of my fandom laid out in these issues. Wonder Woman. Black Canary. The Huntress. Deadshot. Alfred Pennyworth. Doctor Strange.  Continue reading “Don’t Let’s Start #003: The Comic I’ve Had The Longest”

The New England Shake-Up Year 6 Is a Party Not to Miss

The New England Shake-Up Year 6 Is a Party Not to Miss

The last full weekend of September sees the idyllic New England town of Sturbridge invaded not by leaf peepers but vintage loving Rockers. The New England Shake-Up is a roots rock weekender held at the Sturbridge Host Hotel and Conference Center, put on by Beck Rustic of Retroactive Northeast.

For three days, four if you count the pre-party on Thursday night, folks gather from around the world to watch bands and dance to djs playing some of the best rockabilly, western swing and greasy rock and roll to be found! There’s also a classic carshow on Saturday afternoon and on Sunday they throw a pool party!

American Horror Story: Apocalypse Ep1 The End Hot Take Recap

Global nuclear annihilation. That was a little too real life scenario for comfort.

Genetic screening. A caste system. No unauthorized copulation. Did the world end or did Cult win?

It’s nice to see Sarah Paulsen play the heavy. But when do we get Cordelia Goode?

Kathy Bates can sure rock black lipstick.

“The Cooperative” sounds more menacing every time someone says it.

They totally made that dude into stew, right?

No idea what’s going on but the visuals are delicious as always.

Ms Patti LaBelle ladies and gentlemen! Wait, that’s all the Patti LaBelle we get??

Grace & Darius making it church folk official. But she’s still not hearing him when he says he won’t be going to church, this is going to be a thing…

Zora is taking up the bitchiness to 11. She’s lashing out in an attempt to feel some sense of power but it’s brutal to watch.

Looks like we are headed to another showdown between Lady Mae and Grace!

Given what went down between Zora and Sophia, this new living arrangement does not bode well.

And oh Charity, day drinking with Nathan in tow? Not a good look. And neither are the bracelets those officers have for you.

The Greenleafs have all that help: cook, maids, security but Charity still doesn’t have a nanny??

Uh oh Jabari isn’t looking like such a prince…

Now that she’s got all the facts, Grace is DONE taking her mother’s condescension

Zora just might be transitioning from “wild child” to “bad seed”

[Deadline] Brendan Fraser Cast As Robotman In Doom Patrol Series

[Deadline] Brendan Fraser Cast As Robotman In Doom Patrol Series

Brendan Fraser has been cast as one of the leads, Robotman/Cliff Steele, in DC Universe’s upcoming live-action series Doom Patrol, from Greg Berlanti and Warner Bros TV

Fraser will voice Robotman & play Steele in flashbacks. Doom Patrol will be a spin-off of DC Universe’s first live action series, Titans. Jake Michaels played Cliff Steele/Robotman in the first season of Titans, so the (re)casting breaks continuity.

The steaming service’s series will also feature Cyborg, played by Joivan Wade, who is not Ray Fisher the guy who plays Cyborg in the movies. However, it is unclear if the DC Universe universe is yet another separate universe, I have a sinking feeling it is.
