Negative (Niche Show)

The show just seems like it will only appeal to a niche audience. As for the rest? I can’t say with much faith it will hold your interest. Which isn’t to say one or two things may not seem like they can be a sort of silver lining or act as some beacon of hope. However, only a strong faith may get you through the season, if not series.

The Gifted: Season 1/ Episode 1 “eXposed” [Series Premiere] – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

Stan Lee making a short cameo in The Gifted
There was so much hope that The Gifted could be that long-awaited live-action show X-Men fans have clamored for. Sadly, it seems like a mix between Heroes and the disappointment many find Gotham to be.

Youkai Apartment no Yuuga na Nichijou: Season 1/ Episode 1 “First Haunting: Yushi and Kotobuki-so” [Series Premiere] – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

You know, sometimes, to be fair, I just say a show isn’t for me. However, there is such a temptation to mark this negative just because it seems so uninspired. The Introduction After Inaba’s parents died when he was in the 7th grade, he has lived with his uncle’s family. Something which hasn’t been easy on his uncle financially, and has...

Famous in Love: Season 1/ Episode 5 “Some Like It Not” – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Granblue Fantasy The Animation: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Girl In Blue” [Series Premiere] – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Granblue Fantasy comes off pretty much by the books in terms of story and almost a bit dated when it comes to art style. Leaving you very little reason to commit to this series unless you need background noise for your Saturday afternoon nap. The Introduction In a feudal looking world, we come upon an island where a young man named...

Emerald City: Season 1 – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Emerald City is one of those shows where you can see so much potential. However, it never focuses on the stronger aspects of the show. Characters/ actors with better stories and charisma are relegated to second-tier roles. Meanwhile, the top billing characters/ actors struggle under the weight of expectation and are crushed by it as the season comes to...

Amy Schumer (The Leather Special) – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ux-x1GnUuqY I’d like to think I enjoy vulgar comedy. After all, the majority of comedians I like can’t do a complete stand-up performance without some mention of bodily fluids, sex, or cursing. Much less, I’m a fan of the people Judd Apatow made famous. Yet, while I loved Trainwreck, I felt reminded why I have never watched Amy Schumer’s comedy...

Powerless: Season 1/ Episode 1 “Wayne or Lose” [Series Premiere] – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUU8roJFSNg Overview/ Review (with Spoilers) I don’t know what I thought this was, what it could be, or what I was thinking, but I watched the first episode. Leaving me with the general feelings I watch when it comes to NBC programming. Who in the hell watched this and said, “Let’s put it on the schedule.” The Introduction In Charm City, not Gotham,...

Chaos;Child: Season 1/ Episode 0 "Chaos;Head" & 1 "Digital Negative" – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPoweoGCUgU Overview/ Review (with Spoilers) It has been nearly a decade since Chaos;Head was released and honestly I only remember that I watched it. Making episode 0 decent for sparking up some memories but, combined with episode 1, honestly unless you like seeing bodies twisted, mangled, or disfigured, I’m not sure what you may get out of this. Trigger Warning(s): Grotesque Imagery The Introduction As...

Delicious: Season 1/ Episode 1 [Series Premiere] – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpt-adOMqwk Overview/ Review (with Spoilers) Since Downton Abbey ended, and Skins called it quits, there has been a hole left for a decent British drama in my life. One which I was hoping Delicious could fill but… sadly it is as delicious as a microwave dinner. Noted Actor(s) Leo (Iain Glen) | Gina (Dawn French) | Teresa (Tanya Reynolds) | Mimi (Sheila Hancock)...
