Now Streaming: “Stranger Things” on Netflix (10/27/2017)

The show “Stranger Things” has become quite the hit across the interests of fans of Horror, Science Fiction and comic book stuff and beginning immediately on this date, the second season will be available for streaming on the Netflix service. Here’s the official season two poster which I’ve followed by the premise and some casting. Are you excited?

The Premise: Stranger Things is set in the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana, during the early 1980s. The nearby Hawkins National Laboratory ostensibly performs scientific research for the United States Department of Energy, but secretly does experiments into the paranormal and supernatural, including those that involve human test subjects. These start to affect the unknowing residents of Hawkins in calamitous ways.

Netflix Spotlights “Stranger Things” Season 2 “Homage” Posters

I guess it was about a month ago that I showcased some character posters for the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things”. They were cool and showcased some new additions to the cast and here we are once again with a new batch of visuals. This time around, Netflix has given us posters that are done in honor of some classic Horror and Science Fiction movies of the past. I really liked these and think that you will as well. They follow the show premise and I’ll close up with some additional editorial thoughts.

Check Out Netflix’s “Stranger Things” Season 2 Character Posters

Back in July, I shared the “Thriller” trailer for the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things”. It premiered during the Comic Con International: San Diego event and if you missed it just catch up courtesy of THIS LINK. When I shared the trailer, I admitted that I was asleep when the buzz began about this show and despite my desire to binge watch it I just haven’t managed to find the time. Anyway, so the other day a whole bunch of character posters were unveiled and since this is something that I love to share with the readership, I have included them right after the show premise. Take a gander. I’ll close up with some additional editorial thoughts.

Now Streaming: Marvel’s “Defenders” On Netflix (8/18/2017)

By now I am hoping that you have watched the first two seasons of “Daredevil” along with the first seasons of “Jessica Jones”, “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” as a subscriber to Netflix because its all been leading up to this mini-series “The Defenders” where ALL of these mighty heroes and numerous players from across their respective shows will appear and unite against a common foe. If you have only recently subscribed to Netflix, then you have some serious binge watching to do and I recommend you keep these shows in order since much like the big screen hero counterparts, this does take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and there is referencing throughout the shows. Take a look at the official poster and the premise and casting below.

The Premise: Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy in The Hand. (thanks Wiki).

Netflix Presents: Marvel’s “The Defenders” (Official Trailer 2)

As most fans of the comic and movie media stuff we post about know, the Comic Con International: San Diego of “SDCC” is underway and will be winding down today with its fourth and final day. This convention always brings the trailers and sneak-peaks into the upcoming Fall television shows and motion pictures and as you know there is a lot coming out this year. A few months ago we shared the first trailer for the next Netflix installment of their Marvel series “The Defenders” and this is a mini-series that unites the stars of the previous shows Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. These are the Marvel Comics “Street Level” heroes and here is the second trailer for the upcoming series. Check it out.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I pretty much raved about the first trailer and this just excites me all the more. I really enjoyed the other shows and hope that this keeps on coming. Most of us were skeptical at the beginning and here we are now chomping at the bit for the next go at these characters. Sure I wasn’t crazy about this being called “The Defenders” since I grew up on a different team but this dynamic sure seems to work. The question remains is will we find any of these folks in the 2018 major motion picture “Avengers: Infinity War”. Part of me says “no” because they are NOT Avengers at all but neither are the Guardians Of The Galaxy, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man and they are all in there. Only time will tell for that. “The Defenders” will consist of eight total episodes and will be available for streaming in full on August 18, 2017. Let me know what you think of the trailer down in the comments below and you can learn more about the show’s cast and characters via the official Wikipedia entry.
