Daredevil has always been among my favorite Marvel characters. I've only had time to watch the first two episodes so far, but I feel that this retelling is hitting every pitch. I love that the...

What would Elmore do? What he did do. The whole series is based on that one short story, at the end of which Boyd was dead.

I liked Perry in his guest turns on West Wing and Good Wife, and his role in Studio 60. I though Go On would give him more of a chance to explore his ability to bring dramatic dimension to comedic...

I think what matters is whether this show knows what its themes are.

Changing someone else's content is unacceptable. Reading the comments above, I see many people who don't seem to understand the question.

Just to speculate, but there is plenty of precedent for concurrent book series/TV series to not just diverge, but to end up in entirely different places. (True Blood; Dexter)

It's possible that...

This has some potential to be a new Buffy. She's a zombie super-heroine, with powers and everything. Excellent premise, all kinds of potential. Funny, sad, quirky, quick, and three appealing core...

Oh, I agree, and psychoanalyzing fictional sitcom characters, who are necessarily caricatures and not subject to the requirements of realism, is silly. It's about what's entertaining and amusing,...

Yes, they used the resemblance as the basis for a gag, and it was funny. Coming back to it in the current context, and hammering on it the way they did, raises it to a whole new level; "the Mom is...

A couple of things about characterization really stuck out in this episode.

First, Howard's usual "mommy issues" have risen to the level of neurosis, and clearly this is intentional. The writers...

Comcast, at least, has already agreed to unblocking Go on Roku, and is talking to Amazon about the Fire TV. I have no doubt this is part of an attempt to calm the waters leading to approval of the...

I ended up watching all 8 episodes, but it was as close to hate-watching as I ever get. If it weren't for the MCU connection, and the hope for a segue back into AoS, I wouldn't have bothered.

Bosch's love of vintage jazz is right out of the books. Indeed, this may be the most faithful translation of a character from page to screen that I've ever seen. Things have been shuffled around a...

No, it was really them, and his partnership with his wife is long-standing and well-known.

I found it painful to watch, and bailed halfway through the first night.
