Tonight: “Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour” on History Channel

Fans of the legendary Ozzy Osbourne and his reality television antics might enjoy this new show that airs tonight on the History Channel. It pairs him up with his son Jack and together they go on some interesting adventures. I figured I would take a little break from all of the trailers I have been posting to let you know about it. Check out the poster and the very brief premise that the shows Wiki had.

Poster - Ozzy and Jacks World Detour - 2016

The Premise:
Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour is an American comedy reality television series starring Ozzy Osbourne and his son Jack Osbourne. During each episode, Ozzy and Jack visit one or more sites to learn about their history from experts and explore unusual or quirky aspects of their background. (thanks Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll admit that I enjoyed the first couple of seasons of “The Osbournes” but who doesn’t love everything Ozzy in the first place. I leaned more towards the A&E Network “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” as a KISS fan but not too much on the football show that got cancelled anyway. With nothing else featuring Rock celebrity on the television at the moment perhaps this show might be more interesting than the scripted lifestyle show because this one is going to be visiting a lot of historical spaces. This is something that I also like doing for posts on my PiercingKen.com blog (pardon the shameless plug but its true). The commercials for the show look like fun so I will be setting the DVR to program it and then I can binge watch. What do you readers think of this idea for a show? Will you be watching the adventures of Ozzy and Jack? Let me know what you think in the comments section.

Check The Trailer: “Arrow” Season 5 From SDCC

The San Diego Comic Con for 2016 would be ending today and one of the things that I have already noted in several posts is how this convention keeps me busy tossing together posts about trailers for upcoming films or the skimpiest of teaser clips. While we’ve attended to many of the awesome movies that are coming down the pike, its time to pay a little mind to the television shows that feature these colorful characters. I’ll be starting with The CW Television Network since they have not one, but five different DC Comics shows airing during the week. “Arrow” was the first one and it begins its fifth season in October. Here is the trailer for this upcoming season.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not going to mince words here because I absolutely hated so much about the fourth season of “Arrow”. There were some deaths that I felt made no sense in the larger scheme of things and other instances where it was just taking too damned long to get to a closing point. I’m happy that he is finally called The Green Arrow though. A couple of my friends loved it and some others agreed with me so we have a talking point. If S5 doesn’t win me over during the first few episodes I am dropping this one from the DVR programming and focusing my time on something else. I’d love to see a better use of Mr. Terrific in the new season (if we are even going to hear the character who plays him use that name) and some additional super-heroes that can expand this small screen “Arrowverse” a bit better. Hey bring back The Huntress while you are at it, and even Deathstroke. It can’t hurt. What do you readers think of this new season trailer? Let me know in the comments section if you have been watching the show. If you are way behind, they are on Netflix now so you have some more reasons to subscribe. Stay tuned for more.

Teaser Trailer: Netflix “Marvel’s The Defenders” From SDCC

Logo - Marvel The Defenders

The San Diego Comic Con is in full sway as you read this and when this convention happens I find myself busy tossing together posts about trailers for upcoming films or the skimpiest of teaser clips and one of the reveals was for the 2017 Netflix mini-series “Marvels The Defenders”. This show will unite Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist as a team against a larger threat. Check it out below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Okay so I didn’t really expect any Iron Fist stuff in this but we do get his name along with a ramshackle presentation from the shows we have already seen on the streaming service. Personally speaking I felt this is kind of cheap as a teaser even and they should have done better. Maybe this was because there isn’t too much available yet. What did you think? Have you watched any of the Marvel series yet? I am loving them so far and we are three shows in. Luke Cage will begin in September and I believe Iron Fist is the beginning of 2017. That show will precede Defenders. I remain hopeful even though this is a different Defenders from the one I know and love from the comics page. The teasers for both “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” have also been posted so just hit the “On Screen” category to your right if you missed those.
