Good to see you! This is my week in geek!
Here's what is going on in my world:
Netflix's newest original series is an unprecedented collaboration with Marvel Studios, which continues to explore the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The focus on a smaller story, centered around Hell's Kitchen in New York City and the man trying to save it, pays off very well. Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) is just starting out in this first season as he is pitted against Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin). I'm almost done with the first season and it is wonderful, brutal, real, and fun. I can't wait to see how it ends and I am now even more excited for the rest of the Marvel/Netflix series to come in the near future.
I've been watching each of the weekly episodes so far of this season on Yahoo Screen, and I have been very happy with it. The show's new home on Yahoo and the freedom it seems to have given them has allowed for them to go into full on weird territory and it is great. The show feels fresh and new while still holding on to the core parts about what has made it so awesome for the past few years. I look forward to watching the rest of the episodes as they come out!
Parks and Recreation is one of my favorite comedies of all time. It finished it's seven season run recently and I have begun to rewatch the show from the beginning if I just want to have something on that I know I'll enjoy. I find funny nods to something that pays off later, appreciate the start of running gags, and just appreciate the special qualities of the series more as I watch it all again. I know I've found a cherished show or movie when I can watch it multiple times and enjoy it just as much (or more) each time.
