Goodnight, Ms. Jones

Four years ago, something rather marvelous happened. Daredevil premiered on Netflix, marking the beginning of a partnership that spanned six different super hero shows – Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders – over four years, and allowed for an expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the world of…

Mini Me

In which I provide many short reviews and thoughts on topics. No, I’m not writing about the Austin Powers series of movies. Nor about the character of Mini Me.
