LOKI
S1:E1 – GLORIOUS PURPOSE
Review by Stacey Jones

EDITOR’S ALERT: This is the  first part of Stacey Jones’ discussion of Loki and its place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or is it the Marvel Televerse? The real universe, maybe? My mind, it be a’wondering.

LB Sees ‘The Wire’ and ‘Halt and Catch Fire’

by Larry Brody

Until last night, the best TV show I’d ever hated was THE WIRE.

Don’t get me wrong, the series, which originally ran June 2, 2002 to March 9, 2008 and now is streaming on Hulu,  is a creative wonder. Gritty scripts, acting that makes the Italian neo-realist actors look like amateurs,wonderful music…oh hell, wonderful everything.

EDITOR’S ALERT: This is the fifth in Stacey Jones’ ongoing discussion of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and its place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Is ‘Boss Level’ the Best TV Trailer Ever?

And the film (damn, why can’t it be a series?) ain’t bad either.

Or, to put it another way. At last a good, solid, creative reason to watch a Hulu Original. (Maybe even better than that misogynist show where all the women are “Handmaids.”)

And Frank Grillo is a beast!
