Last week I binge-watched the first—and hopefully only—season of Marvel’s The Inhumans and having done so, I question the decision to keep this series part of the TV MCU but also separate from it, in the sense that it tells its own story without including any other characters from established series, even though it keeps consistent with the Inhuman portrayal on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, down to the look and colour of the Terrigen crystals. If there is one series that could’ve used a tie-in to launch its own series, this was definitely the one.
The reason for this is that while Inhumans are certainly an interesting subject in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we’ve seen some really cool ones on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the ones living on the moon under the rule of Black Bolt just aren’t that compelling, least of all the ruling family, who are sadly the central characters of this trainwreck of a show.
Let’s go over these characters and their issues: Continue reading Television Train-wrecks – Marvel’s The Inhumans
Before the start of Comic Con, the organisers sent the press a link to a registration page for talent interviews. A lot of the actors and personalities had “TBC” on their name so I couldn’t pick them and as for the others, I based my decision on whether I had something I wanted to ask them. Because of that, I decided against interviewing Willa Holland and Katrina Law from Arrow. Same with John Noble, as much a fan as I am of him, I don’t watch Elementary, where he portrays Sherlock Holmes’ dad. I quite dislike the show, in fact. My questions for him would be Fringe related or some of his earlier work, but I felt it would be discourteous to join that interview group when I didn’t know anything about his current work.
The ones I did pick, as I mentioned yesterday, were for the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Sleepy Hollow.
For Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we had four actors present at comic con: Continue reading MCM London Comic Con – Interview: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
If you asked me to describe the MCM London Comic Con, the answer would be ‘massive’. I have been to Rezzed two years in a row, and that’s a very intimate event, but even the big daddy of European gaming conventions, EGX, is tiny compared to the MCM Comic Con. There are so many people there, from organisers, artists, cosplayers and everyone else. It is absolutely massive.
This was my first Comic Con and not only was it a fantastic personal experience and I geeked out like I never have before, but it was also a monumental experience as runner/editor/writer of The Mental Attic. Why? Because I attended the MCM London Comic Con as Press. Continue reading MCM London Comic Con – My first ever Con!
TV series are a funny thing, each show is a different beast, with different levels of quality in writing, performances, characterizations and plots, yet all fight each other for the spotlight, for a better schedule and more importantly, for another year. Extra effort always goes into the Pilot episode and the Season Finale, both big ratings grabbers. Continue reading Spiral of Mediocrity – 2013 (to March 2014)

I watch too much stuff…seriously…
I think it’s time I list everything I see. I’ll focus on this season’s series (or those I’m catching up because I missed the season), because I can’t remember them all. Continue reading I’m into too much stuff…
