His Dark Materials: Season 1 • Official Trailer
I can’t pretend I’m not hyped for the new slate of shows coming from HBO.
Watchmen? His Dark Materials?
Just 100% sold.
I. Am. In.
“HBO and BBC present His Dark Materials, a new original series based on the global bestsellers, premiering Monday, November 4 on HBO.
His Dark Materials stars Dafne Keen, James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Adapting Philip Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of the same name, which is considered a modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction, the first season follows Lyra, a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. Her search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. As she journeys through the worlds, including our own, Lyra meets Will, a determined and courageous boy. Together, they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living — and the dead — in their hands.”
Disenchantment Part 2 coming Friday!
The 2nd part/season of Disenchantment is coming to Netflix on Friday! Disenchantment is the latest show from Simpsons/Futurama creator Matt Groening and it was by far my favorite show last year. The first season ended on a huge cliffhanger so I can't wait to see where the adventure leads.
Here's the official teaser for Part 2 but be aware THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS.
Living With Yourself • Official Trailer
Well, it looks like Paul Rudd went and got himself a very cool Netflix show....
“Miles Elliott, a man struggling in life, undergoes a novel spa treatment that promises to make him a better person, only to learn he's been replaced - literally - by a better version of himself. Living with Yourself premieres October 18 on Netflix.
Living with Yourself is an existential comedy that asks: do we really want to be better? Told from multiple perspectives and intersecting storylines, the eight episode series stars Paul Rudd, Paul Rudd and Aisling Bea, and was created and written by Emmy® Award winner Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), and directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (The Battle of the Sexes, Little Miss Sunshine). Greenberg executive produces with Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern for Likely Story, Tony Hernandez for Jax Media, Dayton, Faris, Rudd, and Jeff Blitz.”
Watchmen • Featurette
After having seen The Boys’ take on superheroes in the real world, it’ll be interesting to see just how much this differs — granted, the heroes in the Watchmen film and comics are almost entirely without superpowers. So, instead of a “realistic” perspective on Superman and the Justice League, we get Batman and the complexities of anonymity? Curiouser and curiouser...
“The wicked ride starts 10/20. Watchmen examines how we as a society feel about heroes, most notably people who wear masks and fight crime. #WatchmenHBO
Watchmen is based on the graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and published by DC.”
The Good Place • Season 4: First Look
“Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Jameela Jamil, D'Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto and William Jackson Harper give you a first look at the fourth and final season of The Good Place, premiering Thursday, September 26 at 9/8c on NBC.”
I’m not ready for this season to be the last.

Bringing Thra to Life | The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
I don’t know if you lovely people have started watching Netflix’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, but you should. It’s a very well made prequel series with a bunch of voices you may recognize. Anywho, here’s another quick featurette...
The Mandalorian • Official Trailer
“After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. “The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”
Streaming November 12th on Disney+.
I gotta say, this looks incredible to me. I may be more hyped for this than for the next film.
(All things considered, I was a massive Boba Fett fan as a kid, so this shouldn’t be too surprising...)
Returning to Thra | The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
A good little promo video here that’s certainly getting me hyped for the series’ August 30th premiere on Netflix.
