‘Willow’: An Underrated Fantasy Series That Needs a Second Season

For the past seven weeks, I’ve been watching Willow, a series that I don’t think anyone was asking for yet now that we’ve gotten it I can’t imagine it not existing.

It’s not a show that takes itself too seriously which has been relaxing. It’s like watching a simple sitcom like Stargate with lovable characters going on weekly adventures. I love the diversity of the cast, I love all of the romantic drama, and I’m loving the story. It feels like I’m reading a good old-fashioned YA fantasy novel and that has been the most rewarding element of the series.

Next week, Willow comes to an end and I’m honestly bummed about the prospect of not being able to watch this show anymore. I’m hoping a second season is already in the works because I want to continue following these characters and their storylines.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

Where Does ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Officially Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was one of a kind. An emotionally charged sequel with the very real possibility of being underwhelming. Instead, it exceeded all expectations, becoming not just a profound tribute to one of this generation’s greatest actors, Chadwick Boseman, but becoming yet another powerful addition to the MCU.

Because it was so good I felt I could no longer wait to share where I rank this film in the MCU so here we are. Enjoy!

39. The Incredible Hulk

Who knew that this movie would now be one of the most important early films in the MCU? I’ve got to watch it again so I know who The Leader is by the time of Captain America: New World Order.

38. Thor

Thor has its moments but overall it’s pretty subpar.

37. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Decent, not great.

‘Andor’ Is a Good Show But Its Lack of Aliens Is Criminal

I’ve been watching Andor for six weeks now and while the series has been one of the best-written and most enjoyable Star Wars projects I’ve seen in a long time it is bothering me for one reason and one reason only: its utter lack of aliens.

I have watched eight episodes and have counted only four aliens in the entire series so far! How can that even be possible in Star Wars?!

Since 1977 Star Wars has been a franchise of inspiring heroes, fierce heroines, lovable droids, and iconic aliens. There’s been Chewbacca, Yoda, Jar Jar Binks, Ahsoka Tano, Asajj Ventress, Zeb, Plo Koon, Kit Fisto, and so many other incredible alien characters throughout this franchise.

And then there’s this show and the lack of aliens is just strange. In fact, it’s jarring. Who thought it was a good idea to have a show set in this universe and yet it’s partly devoid of what makes this franchise so lovable?

I want to love this series, and I do, but the lack of love for alien characters in this franchise is starting to really bother me on a personal level. I hope the second season doesn’t repeat this same mistake.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

Is ‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Now One of the Best Things to Happen in the MCU?!

If you had told me just a couple of weeks ago that She-Hulk: Attorney at Law would have my favorite finale of any of the MCU Disney+ series I would’ve cocked my eyebrow and said, “Really? Better than Loki?” Well, after watching it today, I can confidently say yes, yes it’s my favorite.

For 30 minutes straight I couldn’t stop smiling as the finale got better and better, transforming into an ultra-meta experience that literally made my jaw drop. The finale was nothing short of genius, delivering a level of creativity that needs to be more present in this franchise.

‘Andor’ Knocked My Socks Off This Week

This.👏Show.👏Is.👏So.👏Good!

The last two episodes have been somewhat of a slow burn as it built to the halfway mark of this season. But this episode was worth every bit of development created in the last couple of episodes because it was that phenomenal.

From the first second to the last, the episode is riddled with a quiet intensity that builds and builds until, by the final seconds, I was sitting back with goosebumps and eyes wide with awe. This was an utterly exceptional fifty minutes of storytelling that never felt rushed or nonsensical.
