What have I been personally watching and doing this week? I’m glad you asked.
If you have read my recent article talking about DC Universe and how underrated of a streaming service it is, It’s no surprise that I have been spending my week watching the comic book based streaming service.
I started binge watching the show Titans, a live action show based around the adventures of the popular comic book team of sidekick heroes. The show is rated MA meaning that everything flies, and boy does it make this show fun to watch.
My favorite DC hero is and always has been Dick Grayson. Whether it’s as Robin, Batman’s sidekick. Or as Nightwing, who he later becomes after leaving the bat’s side. I have always loved watching and reading everything he is in.
This show is the second live action version of Dick, the first being Chris O’Donnell in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. This version is played by Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean) and I personally think he absolutely kills this role. The rest of the cast is awesome as well, and getting to see a live action version of Beast Boy is super exciting for any fan of the animated series Teen Titans.
After finishing the first season thinking they were struggling to find their footing as a show, I was blown away this week by the second season. I am having a blast watching this show.
Another thing that I’ve been up to this week is reading comics on the DC Universe app. Going through classic storylines of the Batman comics such as The Long Halloween has been a fun way to pass the time when I’m bored in my classes.
Speaking of comics, I visited my local comic shop this week and bought the first issue of Batman: Three Jokers. It came out two weeks ago, so I was a bit slow getting my copy, but boy am I glad I did.
My spoiler free review of the issue is this: It’s awesome. Jason Todd as Red Hood is awesome in it, and so is the story of fighting three different Jokers. I am very excited for the next issue, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Batman Comics.
My week has pretty much consisted of being at school (it’s my last year of college baby) and working at my job and on Exciting Incident. It’s been a pretty busy week but I’m really excited to be working on Exciting Incident.
The reason I started this blog was to both give myself a creative outlet in order to speak about things I’m passionate about, and also to start some sort of business that relates to my major, which is Digital Media.
Something that I really want to accomplish with Exciting Incident, is to not just be another source of negitivity when it comes to opinions and news of Film and Television. All the time scrolling through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, all I see is how much people hated (place movie here) or how (place tv show here) is the worst show ever.
I can’t even count the amount of times I watched a movie that everyone online trashed, and actually really enjoyed. Film and Television is art, and art is subjective to the audience. I don’t want to tell people how they should feel about a new movie. I want to be a place where you can read interesting opinions and news about your favorite films, shows, actors, and entertainers.
A fun place where we can all just enjoy things and not worry about what rotten tomatoes gave it… Except The Office. I hate The Office.
