Some Overactive¹ Thoughts on “Soul Brother #1” (Luke Cage’s Season 2 Opener)

This isn’t a review of the season, or even the episode. It is commentary on it, because I was trying to watch it and got distracted a number of times. Usually “distracted” means “unengaged” with a touch of “something was more interesting” when people mention it with regards to viewing–but that actually wasn’t the case […]

The Defenders (2017)

Let’s clear something up straight away: I don’t plan on explicitly reviewing this. I don’t generally like reviewing television series, in that it often feels like something akin to the exhausting way I used to review music.¹ I’ve done it before to be sure, but, even then, I noted that it’s not something I like doing.
