“Real Maturity, Mostly” (Daredevil: Season 2)

“Real Maturity, Mostly” (Daredevil: Season 2)

Last year, Marvel Comic’s deal with Netflix yielded one of the best comic book adaptions in years, Daredevil, a thirteen episode series about the origins and life of the Marvel comics character Daredevil (go figure). After watching the first season in literally one day, I couldn’t wait for the second season to hit Netflix. Well, now it’s here, and it’s definitely making itself noticed.

“Leviathan Faints” (SyFy’s The Expanse: Season 1)

“Leviathan Faints” (SyFy’s The Expanse: Season 1)

Long time readers of The Fortress may remember that one of my favorite science fiction series is The Expanse, by James S A Corey. I adore all of them, and I cannot wait for the sixth book, Babylon’s Ashes, coming out this August. So, when I heard that the SyFy channel was adapting it, I was naturally excited, but also worried. I wrote a whole article on that last year sometime, and now I finally got the chance to finish the whole season. How did I like it? Well, let’s just say my worst fears were confirmed.

The first was Daredevil, an absolutely phenomenal take on a classic superhero, that genuinely surprised me with the levels of depth it had reached by the end of it’s 13 episode tenure. Jessica Jones came out recently, and despite my best efforts, I was unable to watch it all in one day. Life got in the way, so I had to settle for two days.

“I ‘Love’ This Show” (Gotham: Lovecraft)

“I ‘Love’ This Show” (Gotham: Lovecraft)

Gotham! I watched the first episode of this show when it aired, and then stopped. I don’t remember why. Don’t ask. Anyway, it actually was pretty intriguing, and I decided to go back and watch some more of it on the internet. But, since Fox has decided that it can only hold five episodes at a time on it’s website, (and I refuse to pirate it) I ended up watching episode one, and then seven onward. And I’m two episodes behind. So, I’m going to call this a review of episodes 1, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Yeah! Continue reading “I ‘Love’ This Show” (Gotham: Lovecraft)
