Netflix Cancels Remaining Marvel Television Series

In news that’s probably no surprise to anyone, Netflix has cancelled its two remaining Marvel Television series, The Punisher and Jessica Jones. As I’ve said before, whatever the reasons Netflix is cancelling it’s Marvel shows, ratings are only a part of the story (how could they know the trajectory of Jessica Jones, which was successful […]

The Umbrella Academy – Season 1

For awhile I was worried about Netflix cancelling Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil (more than likely to be followed by The Punisher and Jessica Jones) but after seeing the first season of The Umbrella Academy, a new series based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name, I’m a bit more comfortable because […]
