The DC Universe streaming service was off to a good start with the live action series for “Titans” and when I had briefly joined up had scores of comic books to peruse on your mobile device. Now its time for the next series to begin as The Doom Patrol come to life. Let’s take a look at the poster, premise and casting once more.
I’ve been sharing the videos and visuals from the Dark Horse Entertainment live-action series “The Umbrella Academy” so I will hope by now that you caught the Official Trailer and seen the Promotional Posters (but if you didn’t just click those italicized words and they will bring you to see it all). In the other posts I mentioned this was a new property to me, and I still have not managed to catch up. The series is now available for binge watching so have at it but don’t ruin any surprises for me okay.
The Premise: On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

The winter has been pretty relentless in terms of the overall cold that’s been hitting us but there really hasn’t been too much snow to get in our way of doing things outside of the apartment so that a plus. Tonight “The Walking Dead” returns to the airwaves for the second half of its ninth season and we shared the “New Enemy” trailer what feels like a forever ago HERE. Down below is the creepy poster they had circulating for the second half and for good measure I’ve repeated the overall premise and lengthy casting. Oh yeah and don’t worry there is some editorial notations from me and a list of past seasons to order on Amazon.com
I once said that there was never a better time to be a fan of comic books and the vivid stories that come from them and are now finding themselves to the big and small screen. The CW Entertainment network has a half dozen DC Comics superhero shows and now a popular Dark Horse Comics title “American Gods” is getting a second season for its tales. The show is based on the novel by the great Neil Gaiman and the first official trailer for this new season is down below. I’ve also added some premise and the massive casting from last season for those who might only just be learning about the series. Take a look.
The Premise: When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he enters a world he does not understand and meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday. Left adrift by the recent death of his wife, Shadow is hired as Mr. Wednesday’s assistant/bodyguard. He finds himself in a hidden world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, including Technology and Media. In a grand plan to combat the threat, Mr. Wednesday attempts to unite the Old Gods to defend their existence and rebuild the influence that they have lost, leaving Shadow struggling to accept this new world and his place in it.

For those fans of the Star Trek franchise and are top to bottom Trekkie’s when it all comes down to it, today is an exciting day because the second season of “Star Trek: Discovery” has now become available for streaming on the CBS All Access network. Of course, you’ll need a subscription to the service to do it and if you don’t have one yet, perhaps the revisiting to the Official Trailer (seen HERE) will help you in your decision making process.
