There have been some interesting developments this month and some great things to look forward to next month. Did you know there was going to be another season of Outcast and iZombie?
And this last week it’s been almost impossible to escape Pennywise the Clown, from IT. Luckily clowns don’t scare me – but I feel sorry for those who are scared of clowns, this week on social media must have been awful for you. Ah well, like I always say, if you want to be really scared by a movie go see the one about the thing you’re already afraid of.
TV Land: Iron Fist, Hap & Leonard
March has been a slow. Whilst not many new shows have started this month, those that began last month are still keeping us entertained -mostly. I did give up on Walking Dead a couple of episodes ago. I might come back to it one day but I just felt like I was wasting an hour every other Monday night – exciting, action packed episode one week followed by a slow filling in the gaps episode the next. But there are a couple of mention worthy new ones.
- 12 Monkeys is now available on Netflix if you missed its TV airing
- Lethal Weapon on ITV, which I haven’t watched yet 🙁
Iron Fist – Netflix
Some people are liking it others aren’t – I rather enjoyed it though. And I look forward to the next season and the Defenders with all the other Netflix band of heroes. I did think there were moments where he was channelling Keanu Reeves…did you watch it yet? What did you think?
