It was just about a week ago when I shared the Official Trailer for “The Fugitive” which is the next foray into short-form entertainment from the folks over at Quibi. Today this series has just gone “live” for those who are finding this method of entertainment to their liking. Let’s review the new poster, premise and casting before I close up with some editorial opinion.
When a bomb rips through the Los Angeles subway train he’s riding on, blue-collar Mike Ferro just wants to make sure his wife, Allison, and 10-year-old daughter, Pearl, are safe. But the faulty evidence on the ground and “tweet-now, confirm-later” journalism paint a nightmarish picture: it looks to all the world that Mike was responsible for the heinous act. Wrongfully—and very publicly—accused, Mike must prove his innocence by uncovering the real perpetrator, before the legendary cop heading the investigation can apprehend him.

Some of you readers might remember my sharing some trailers for this new Quibi short-form streaming service in an effort to upgrade the amount of content in our Pop Culture focuses. The first show that we discussed was their take on “Most Dangerous Game” and if you click the highlighted text you can see those narratives. Next up comes their new version of “The Fugitive”. This was a very popular show in the fifties and also a great movie with Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones so let’s see how they modified this premise with the first Official Trailer online now. Enjoy.

Hey there my animated series loving Pop Culture fanatics. I’m here to share the news that the Netflix Original series “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” is officially available to stream on the service if you are a subscriber and while this is a show geared towards a younger audience, we know that many of our dedicated readers have families and we like to keep them in the loop in the event that they missed the news. I’ve been posting the trailers over on “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” since the audience is slightly broader in age and if you’d like to see that clip just click HERE for good measure. I’ve secured the poster, light premise and voice-casting for you to peruse before some closing editorial notions.
If you’ve been following the Pop Culture side of PiercingMetal for any length of time recently, you most likely know that I also occasionally “cross-post” with my “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” website when I feel that an item serves each of the two creative worlds. Case in point the now available to stream in full Netflix series “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power”, a show whose trailer can be found HERE on that website. This is the first time I’ve brought up the series to our Heavy Music and Pop Culture audience and I figured it a good idea since so many of our friends have younger kids or siblings. Below you can learn more about the show and its voice casting.
The Premise: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power follows Adora, an orphan raised by the Horde, an evil army led by Hordak, who rules the planet Etheria with an iron fist. One day, after getting lost in the woods, Adora finds a magic sword that transforms her into the titular Princess of Power, She-Ra. After realizing the suffering that the Horde has inflicted on Etheria and its inhabitants, Adora joins the Resistance in the fight against the Horde through rebuilding the Princess Alliance, a group of other magical girls that once all opposed Hordak. Adora’s newfound allegiance to the Resistance pits her against her former best friend Catra, whose sense of abandonment, malicious ambitions, and the disappearance of her former friend enables her to rise in the ranks of the Horde to become the new heroine’s mortal enemy.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve already mentioned up above, this series falls more along the lines for the younger generation of fan so if you have the sort of family circle members in your world, be sure to tune this in with them or for them what have you. Help keep the interest in superhero stuff in the growing minds. That’s all I have about the matter so I will see you next time with more and more stuff. Until then.
