Filmwhys Extra #24 Constantine Season 1

Filmwhys Extra #24 discussing the first season of NBC’s Constantine with web author Stefan Gagne from StefanGagne.com. We talk a little bit about the comic book origins, the Keanu Reeves movie, and the possibility for a season 2. Also, a quick note that the Filmwhys archives have been updated with all of the older episodes through #40, and split up into multiple pages as well so you don’t have to scroll through 40+ poster images to find the episode you’re looking for. The Extra episodes will be updated probably next weekend.

This Week at Channel: Superhero

Instead of my previous weekly superhero TV re-caps, I wanted to help spread the word a bit more on my new site, Channel: Superhero so I thought that the best way to do that is to continue to share the weekly superhero shows on TV, though if you want to read more about the episode and comment, feel free to do that over on my sister site, which you can also find through the link in the sidebar that looks like a remote control.

This Week in Superhero TV 11/30 – 12/5

Welcome back to another week of super-heroics and a little bit of news for you. I don’t generally talk about news much, but I am a big fan of the underrated show Don’t Trust the B– in Apartment 23 with Krysten Ritter as the lead so I wanted to talk a little bit about a recent announcement. There hasn’t been a whole lot of news that I’ve noticed that concerns the Netflix Marvel shows that aren’t Daredevil. But they recently announced the leads for the upcoming shows Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. I personally don’t have any exposure at all to Luke Cage or Jessica Jones other than the fact that all of the Netflix series are supposedly more down to Earth and less superpowered. I also don’t know much about Mike Colter who was cast as Luke Cage, but I’m completely on board with Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones. Things are starting to ramp up before slowing down as the current shows start getting into their midseason finales, with Gotham last week, The Walking Dead this week, and the Flash next week. While Agent Carter starts a month from now and iZombie somewhere around there as well. And as always, I’d like to thank Rachel Thuro for tackling the Walking Dead. And I just realized that I forgot to watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this week, I’ll either add it in tomorrow, or add it to next week’s post.

This Week in Superhero TV 11/23 – 11/28

It’s been a busy week. I’ve gotten the chance to take the week off of work, stay home, relax, watch a bunch of movies and it’s been good. There’s also been a bit of news in the realm of superhero TV though I won’t cover all of it here. The thing that impacts this site the most is that Constantine now has the sword of Damocles hanging over its head. It’s currently the lowest rated comic book related show out there and hasn’t held on to Grimm’s ratings very well. It had a nice bump last week, but before those numbers came out the order was given that NBC will not give it a full season run. Instead Constantine will only get 13 episodes which makes getting a second season much more unlikely. Which is disappointing, even though it’s still early in its run, I have liked it better than Gotham. But it hasn’t done a whole lot to wow me aside from the Feast of Souls episode. Also, if you haven’t heard yet, I am planning on expanding this feature into a full fledged site and am looking for contributors so please check it out! And as always, I would like to thank Rachel Thuro for tackling this week’s The Walking Dead.

Superhero TV Site Project

As most of you reading this may know, I’m a big fan of superheroes and movies which was one reason why I created this site. It’s been a lot of fun and it’s not going anywhere. But I also have a love of television and while this year has really grown from zero to one prime time superhero and comic book television shows to 6: Walking Dead, Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, The Flash, Arrow, and Constantine, with Daredevil, Supergirl, Teen Titans, the other Netflix shows, and more in development. It’s a crazy time to be a fan of superheroes on TV. And of course, there’s still plenty of kid-friendly animated shows from both DC and Marvel including an upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon. So what I would like to do is to create a spin-off site that covers all of these television shows as well as retro looks at past TV shows. But there is just too much out there and if I tried to do this alone, both sites would suffer. So I need your help! Check out below to see what I’m looking for and how you can help.

This Week in Superhero TV 11/16 – 11/21

Welcome back to another full week of superheroes and comic books on TV. Surprisingly the weakest episode of the bunch for my purposes was the Flash which has been my favorite this season. Still, quite a bit to talk about in all the shows that I’ve been watching, and once again I’m happy to have Rachel Thuro share her thoughts on this week’s The Walking Dead. I’d love to hear your thoughts on one or all of this week’s shows as well so don’t forget to leave a comment!

This Week in Superhero TV 11/9 – 11/14

Welcome back to another week’s worth of superhero and comic book television. By the way, while I don’t personally have time to add Arrow to my own TV watching, I’d like to have it covered here. If you’re interested in writing a paragraph a week sharing your own thoughts on Arrow, let me know. Once again, I’m pleased to have Rachel Thuro share her thoughts on this week’s Walking Dead.

This Week in Superhero TV 11/2 – 11/7

Welcome back to yet another week of Superhero and comic book television. And since it’s a short week with no Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or Flash, this week I have someone to help me fill in one of a couple gaps I have in my viewing schedule as there are only so many hours a day, I’m barely keeping up with the four shows I watch already, I’m not interested in catching up two or more seasons, nor am I interested in jumping into the middle of a show. So I’ve got Rachel Thuro helping me out with her thoughts on the Walking Dead. Rachel has a long and storied blogging past which I won’t get into right now, but currently is a co-host of the great Reel Insight Podcast where she and Jess take a look at both the highest grossing movie and Academy Award Best Picture winner for a specific year which is occasionally both the same movie.
