Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement…
It’s FRIDAY! Time to go over THIS WEEK with the Superheroes…
I have a few things I want to go over this week. And yes I know, I’m in serious need of a shave!
First up, a bit of seriousness… wrestling legend Jerry The King Lawler was arrested for a domestic incident and suspended indefinitely from the WWE… in the wake of what went down with the former Adam Rose, I can’t imagine Lawler returning to the WWE any time soon… so Kevin Dunn is getting his wish to removed The King from the screen. At the time of this recording, The King was out of jail and will have an arraignment on Monday.
Earlier this week I review a couple of books, one was Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse, a twistedly fun novel by Jack Strange that tells the story of a celebrity chef who returns from the grave as a zombie who wants to, you guessed it, Take Over The World. If you’re looking for a good, brisk read, check it out on Amazon.
It’s been announced that Gotham returns on September 19… however the epicness of DC’W doesn’t start up until October, with The Flash returning on October 4, Arrow on October 5, Legends of Tomorrow on October 13 and then Supergirl joins the fun on October 17. That’s gonna be a lot fun when the shows do a week long crossover.
The classic Marvel Ultimate Alliance is coming to the PS4 and X-Box One… well if I had either system I would be excited… I’d like to see a PC re-release of, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2… and X-Men Legends 1 and 2...
Arrow is adding the character Wild Dog to it’s ranks next season… and wow… that’s a real random choice. I read a mini-series featuring the character a long time ago, and the best way to describe the character in my eyes… he’s DC’s spoof on The Punisher. Also, considering Stephen Amell played Casey Jones, a hockey-mask wearing character in the Teenage Muntant Ninja Turtles movie this summer, the irony of a hockey-mask wearing character joining his show is not lost on me.
On the negative side… well… there’s a few things that have gotten my goat. One is the characterization of Lance, yes in the original show he was a bit of a wise-ass and a skirt chaser… however the character is one of the worst aspects of this series, with an over-inflated ego and nearly no redeeming qualities. In ‘Taken Flight’ Lance is such an ass he actually loses the Blue Lion to impress a girl, and it’s clear he doesn’t ‘learn’ from his mistakes. Then there is Coran… the comic relief… look I what is funny to one person ain’t going to be funny to another… but with Coran, it’s just way too over the top 95% of the time, the remaining 5% is when the character has to be ‘serious’ where he’s tolerable…. Now this may seem like I’m ragging on what are clearly the ‘joke’ characters of the series…but considering both get quite a lot of screen time, it’s hard not to notice how cringe worth it is.
Still… those two characters aside, the show is great. It only has 13 episodes at the moment, but I’m suspecting there will be a season two order announcement in the near future, thanks in part to the epic cliff hanger it ends on
And on that note, I think this is where I’ll wrap things up. Tomorrow is Saturday, which means Tales From The TARDIS and part 2 of The Aztecs story.
Catch ya then!
