Lucifer is a show loosely based on the character of Lucifer first established in the renowned Sandman comic books. While very loosely based on those books, Lucifer the television show is actually kind of a mashup between Castle and Supernatural. It’s a police procedural with supernatural drama going on.

I feel like ever since Sword Art Online came out, the genre of an anime that takes place in a Massive Multiplayer Online Game setting has exploded. There are so many of these types of anime out there nowadays. Konosuba is another one of these, though it’s almost never serious and mostly hilarious.

At this point in my life, if there’s a superhero in the show, I will watch it. I can’t help it. I just like superhero stuff and I’m too curious to do otherwise. So after the last season of Arrow, I wasn’t expecting much this season. I didn’t enjoy the last season. Fortunately, while this season does make a few of the same narrative mistakes as last season, I generally enjoyed it.

I love science fiction. Especially trippy, Doctor Who-esque science fiction and this is what makes The Flash so good. As the series has progressed, each season has gone further and further down the sci-fi rabbit hole. Accordingly, this season is the best season yet.

After at least ten years, Samurai Jack has finally ended. With shows that have been around this long, there are a lot of memories associated with this series as well as nostalgia. Ultimately, I think they did the ending right, though it did feel a little rushed.

While not the longest running show ever, Supernatural has been on T.V. a long time. We’ve now entered the twelfth season and I think the formula of this show is well established. I like the sameness and knowing the plot beats I can expect to see, except in slightly different forms. I like this show the way it is and I do not want it to change.

I’ve said this before about this series and I’ll say it again, this season was the best season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. yet. No spoilers as always.

If your familiar with the series, there’s not much to say about this season. It’s more of the same from season one. This isn’t a bad thing, there’s just no evolution or improvements.

I think what needs to be understood about this movie is that this is a fun movie. This is a comedy. If you’re looking for a serious story or a space opera, this isn’t it. There are some emotional points throughout the movie, but if you take the few moments of drama with the overwhelming amount of jokes and fourth wall breaking moments, it’s clear this is not a super serious film.
