It’s time for another episode of SFP-Now TV Reviews. This time Ian and I are joined by special guest, Jeff Burns. We discuss the newest episodes of The Last of Us, Star Trek: Picard, Quantum Leap, and more!
SFP-NOW TV REVIEWS SHOW: Featuring Ahsoka, One Piece and The Wheel of Time –
Welcome to another exciting episode of the SFP-NOW reviews show. Having returned from their epic weekend at Dragon Con. Marx and Jeff have a fair bit to share about their weekend of panels as well as good news about their book sales.
As far as TV reviews go. We take a less is more approach this week as we discuss Ahsoka, which continues the adventures of the popular character from Star Wars: Clone Wars and Rebels. In fact Ian says that it might as well be called Rebels season 5 because it uses many of the popular characters from that series and kind of picks up from where that series left off.
We also take a rather critical look at The Wheel of Time, which once again suffers from some rather iffy pacing when it comes to unraveling the story.
And finally. Marx and Jeff sing loudly about the new Netflix drama One Piece, which is a feature adaptation of the popular long-running anime and manga series created by Eiichiro Oda. This show follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy and his pirate crew as they search for the ultimate treasure known as "One Piece" in a vast and colorful world filled with pirates, marines, and powerful devil fruit users.
I’m co-hosting another podcast! Every other week Ian and I review TV shows. More details on this episode below.
Welcome to SFP-NOW and our new TV reviews show that we’ll be looking to roll out every two weeks. For this series, Ian Cullen is joined by Marx Pyle of GenreTainment to discuss episodes of various genre television shows. We hope to bring in a third host to occasionally try and spice things up. But for now it will just be myself and Marx.
This First episode takes a look at episode three of The Last Of Us, which seemed to stir up mixed reviews from fans of the game versus those fans that have just tuned in for the series. Get our views on the Bob and Frank storyline.
Also, we have a look at the new Netflix Series Lockwood & Co, which is somewhat of a surprise package with its story of an alternate future in which ghosts are a very common occurrence, but can only be hunted down by teenagers.
Staying on the theme of supernatural series we also take a look at the new Paramount Plus series Wolf Pack, which is somewhat of a comeback for Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Geller who interestingly doesn’t have a huge role in the show’s pilot episode. But we’re pretty sure that her role will expand as the story grows.
Moving on from horror. We jump to some time travel for some fast and dirty comments on the new Quantum Leap series and the episode titled Leap. Die. Repeat. which kind of played out a little like Groundhog Day.
And Finally, Marx talks about his recent experience of being a panelist on a massive Buffy The Vampire Slayer Rewatch and talks a little about what he considers to be the best episodes of the show’s fourth season.
I had a great time being a guest on The Star Chamber Show!
Check out the show below to hear me chat with co-hosts Holly Phillippe, Stephen Zimmer, and Daniel Dark about my non-ficiton book Television on the Wild Wild Web: And How to Blaze Your Own Trail, filmmaking, martial arts, and more.
This is episode #110 of GenreTainment and and we are chatting with indie author, YouTuber and filmmaker Garrett Robinson.
After publishing his first work in December of 2012, Robinson has published 9 science fiction & fantasy books (Nightblade, Midrealm, Touch, etc) with many more in development. We discuss how he got started with filmmaking which evolved into writing books. We also learn how he approaches writing and he shares a number of tips for other indie creators.
We learn about his new Legendary line of books he is writing with Sterling & Stone and much more. Oh, and we go on a slight but hopefully interesting tangent about Marvel’s Netflix series Jessica Jonesand the lack of females roles in fantasy.
GenreTainment is where Marx & Julie talk about what is happening in the world of film, TV and web series. We give you interviews with writers, directors, producers and actors in both independent and not-so-independent creations.
