Review: Les Miserables, Episode Two

Welcome back! After last week’s pilot, I’m really glad to say that the BBC adaptation of Les Misérables is soaring. Thanks to the enduring patience of Flixist’s US writers, who have given me free reign to cover wh...

HBO provides its first look at the upcoming Watchmen series

There's no denying the greatness of Alan Moore's Watchmen. The 1987 story took a dark look at the superhero realm, filled it with riotous prerogatives and semi-retired heroes forced into a choice of underground vigilante or common civilian ...

I didn't see Daredevil Season 3 coming so quickly

All of the new seasons of Netflix's Marvel shows have just crept up on me from out of nowhere. I had no idea Luke Cage (Season Two) even aired and now we're already talking about Iron Fist (Season Two) and how it has improved on the first s...

New Carmen Sandiego animated series coming to Netflix in 2019

If you're a person of a certain age (i.e., you're old), you probably have some fond memories of Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? There were the computer games in the 80s and 90s, which spun off into a children's game show and an anima...

Review: Iron Fist (Season 1)

Iron Fist is such a tremendous failure on so many levels that it's fascinating to dissect. It's not fascinating to watch, however. The latest Marvel series on Netflix is a 13-hour bore that's 15% martial arts show and 85% boardroom drama. T...
