Marvel’s Inhumans is Literally Out of This World – And There’s a Teleporting Dog!

When Arnim Zola showed up as a series of computer screens in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I thought there was absolutely no way on Earth that Marvel could top themselves with crazy, obscure, bizarre characters making it to the mainstream. Now that I’ve seen previews of Inhumans, I stand corrected. Lockjaw, a giant, teleporting dog, is making his way to the small screen this month! Continuing its entertainment domination with major motion pictures, Netflix …

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

The Defenders #StreamTeam

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. I loved the WWF (that’s what it was called back in the day) and probably laughed as much as I cheered while watching every single match.

It was called GLOW …
