Marvel’s “Jessica Jones”: The Almost-First-Quarter Review

Given all the love for my review of “Daredevil” (thanks for the compliments; they mean a lot!), I thought I’d start reviewing “Jessica Jones”.  However, this will be a little bit different, as you probably noticed in the title.  You see, after a month, I’ve only managed to watch the first three episodes, so I […]

A review of Netflix/Marvel’s “Daredevil”

This past weekend, the much-anticipated Marvel/Netflix television series was released.  I spent much of the weekend watching this show, and thought I would share with you my musings. Overall, I thought it was an excellent show, and hope a second season arrives quickly.  I know there are fanboys saying that this is the show “Arrow” […]

It’s been quite a while since I have written anything, and since Raw is cancelled tonight (stay safe, our friends up North!), I thought I’d jot down my feelings about the Rumble. Pre-Show: New Day vs. Cesaro/Kidd About what I expected to see.  Some good moves, including that finisher by Kidd.  Cesaro and Kidd are […]

Starting the Reign of Reigns

A few months back, Brock Lesnar famously (or infamously, depending upon your point of view) ended the undefeated Wrestlemania streak of the legendary Undertaker.  Naturally, wrestling fans lost their minds.  Even people here at DWP spent weeks trying to find a reason, trying to see if maybe it had been a mistake, that the original […]

So what has this lovely lass up in arms?  Are the new movies canceled?  Are they being set in modern-day Los Angeles?  Are they going to […]

Whine, whine, whine

Like most of America, I tuned-in, if only partially, to watch the Super Bowl last night.  I happened to catch the teaser for “Transformers 4”, and did a little squeal of delight with the final shot of the teaser, featuring the dragon-like Dinobot, Grimlock.  I thought it looked pretty awesome. A short while later, Newsarama […]

D.C.’s “Earth One” Graphic Novels

In 2010, DC Comics released the first of (so far) three new graphic novels, set in a continuity known as “Earth One”.  This book was “Superman: Earth One”.  This Earth is a world that very closely mirrors our own, in terms of technology, attitudes, political situations, and the like.  The idea was to introduce the […]

Continuity is not a four-letter word

Upfront, full disclosure: I love DC’s “New 52”.  When they announced the relaunch, I was excited.  While I loved the old universe, it just felt like it was time to reboot everything.  I was ready for new adventures and stories, without needing to keep up on 25+ years worth of previous stories and retcons. Even […]
