Netflix’s Marvel Shows Aren’t Just for Superhero Fans (or How to Get Your Friends to Binge Watch The Defenders)

The Defenders #StreamTeam

My name is Andrew and I am a comic book geek. That means that even if Marvel puts out the craziest movies and TV shows based on obscure characters like Ant-Man or Iron Fist, I’m first in line. And when Netflix’s amazing set of characters team up in a new series called The Defenders, I’m screaming from the rooftops. Yeah, The Defenders. Sounds like a cheap version of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, a.k.a. The Avengers. To be …

Netflix Wrestles With Hair Spray and Thigh-High Boots in the Hilarious Series GLOW

GLOW #Streamteam

I grew up with Hulk Hogan, Sgt. Slaughter and Rowdy Roddy Piper.

13 Reasons I Just Can’t Look Away from Lemon Snicket’s Unfortunate Events

Lemony Snicket #ASOUE

From the very opening of Netflix’s original series Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, viewers are told to look away. A deadpan narrator practically begs and pleads with us to watch no more as an endless series of unfortunate events awaits three beautiful children. No happy ending. No good to counter the bad. Just look away. Of course, like most humans, when you’re told to look away, what do you do? Yeah, you look …
