Stitch Watches Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 1/Episode 1: Pilot

I’m all for superhero origin stories but not when we’ve gotten five Spider-Man films in the past twelve years with two of those films revolving around the same main plots of Peter’s life.

At this point, Peter Parker as a teenager just isn’t interesting. Continue reading

[TV Show] Daredevil

AKA: How I spent an entire weekend in front of Netflix. In the interest of full-disclosure, I have a confession to make: I don’t know that much about Daredevil. I saw the Ben Affleck films and I’ve seen him in … Continue reading
