Comic Con 2017 Was Better Than Christmas: Here Are Some of My Favorite Trailers, News & Posters!

I wasn’t in San Diego, in fact I’m on the other side of the world in Uganda. Seriously check my location. Even though I am a million miles away I felt the nerd vibe. This weekend was filled with a whole of a lot of goosebumps, screams, and a constant “WHATT???!” from my mom every other minute whenever I yelled from excitement. Here are some of my favorite trailers and news coming out of SDCC 2017!

Game of Thrones Series Trailer [Seasons 1-6]

Spoiler Warning: Do not watch this trailer if you are not caught up with the latest season of Game of Thrones 

Before a new season of Game of Thrones comes out I always promise myself that I’ll re-watch the entire series. I usually fail after being intimidated by the show’s (nearly) 60 hour runtime. I tried again in June and ultimately failed again. Thankfully the official Game of Thrones youtube channel released a 5 minute video that encapsulates all major storylines and plot points of the past six seasons. It’s been a year since we’ve last visited the world of Westeros and this series trailer, although short, serves as a great way to summarize the many and long character arcs of the epic show.

Excited for the penultimate season 7? Let me know in the comments below!

Survey! Who are some of your favorite female characters in movies?

Feel free to answer in the comments below or on a google form I created here!

My #2K17 Summer Television Watchlist

I’m a little bummed out that Mr.Robot, my favorite running series, will not premiere its third season over the summer. Although I won’t be able to catch up on Elliot’s mind boggling realities until October, there are plenty of quality shows that are heading our way this summer that I cannot wait to watch and am more eager to share with you. Including both returning and new series that have caught my interest, here is my Summer 2017 watchlist.

What Have I Been Watching: Television [March]

Smack in the middle of March, Spring Break came along and I was able to catch up on all the television I missed over the semester. With my Hulu subscription,  I watched some old episodes of Cartoon Network’s amusing, yet at times dry, Regular Show and the surprisingly good We Bare Bears. I tried my best to catch up in Modern Family, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and continued my attempt to finish Tina Fey’s 30 Rock – I’m only on S02E09 after almost a year of beginning the series. My efforts to watch more episodes of these shows failed mainly because I was engulfed in the worlds of two brilliant pieces of television. They happened to be FX’s Legion and Cartoon Network’s Samurai Jack.

My Favorite Television Shows of 2016

2016 is over, finally, and although the year was universally crummy it did produce some outstanding television. Film and TV, as frequent viewers here may know, is a form of escapism for me. A way to leave whatever troubles me in the real world and get lost in some fictitious ones. This year there were a couple of shows, both new and returning, that I would return to week after week, or day after day if they were on Netflix, to get my dose of immersion. Going in fresh into 2017 I wanted to reflect on these shows and write about what I loved so much about them. So here are my favorite shows of 2016 (unranked)!

Mr.Robot > The Rest of Television: An Analysis of S02E10

From the very first moments of Mr. Robot’s sophomore season I knew that the show was heading into a realm that has yet to be explored on television. What I am currently praising the most from this truly brilliant piece of television is the stellar and visionary directing of Sam Esmail.

Mr. Robot S02E04 [Down the Rabbit Hole We Go]

The fourth (technically third) episode of Mr. Robot is strange and that’s saying a lot for a show with a story and directing style that hardly resembles any other running television series. The atmosphere of season 2 thus far has been quite “off”. Its eerie, nerving and the already odd world that surrounds Elliot seems unbalanced. Some fans have theorized that the slow pacing and weird tone of this season in building to a huge twist or something bigger in the grand scheme of the narrative. Other viewers have already thrown in the towel and gave up on the future of the show entirely. So which is it? Is Mr. Robot building to something grand or has it become too pretentious for its own sake?

Orange is The New Black Season 4 Review [Spoiler Alert it’s Stellar]

The fourth season of Orange is the New Black (OITNB) is as complex as it is visceral. It bluntly throws the truth of American society at your face and barely gives you enough time to process the harshness of the reality. OITNB season 4, as all previous seasons have done so well, will rip your heart out, make you laugh, cry and scream at your television (laptop?) in agony within moments of your preceding emotion. Whatever you felt towards our beloved all female ensemble it goes without saying that the fourth season of OITNB is the show’s best.
