Netflix drops new trailer for “The Punisher”

The Punisher is coming, and your time to see him is soon. Very soon..

Netflix just released a brand spanking new trailer of their exclusive drama about Frank Castle, who entered the Marvel TV Universe during season 2 of Daredevil. This trailer gives us some more info about the mysterious man, and gives us a reminder of how dangerous he is.

Here is the official synopsis from Netflix:

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Marvel’s The Punisher premieres globally █████ 2017, only on Netflix.

You will notice the date has been blacked out. I get the feeling we will get that info at NYCC in a few weeks, but I expect that date to be sooner than later.

“Gotham” season 4 trailer drops – masks aplenty!

I am not a regular viewer of Gotham (in fact, I gave up after the first season), but apparently it has a pretty hardcore fan base. Lo and behold, the series has made it into its fourth season, and I have been in the dark about much of it since the second season. It looks like things are about to get interesting in the upcoming season, so it may be a good time to jump back in.

Season four looks like they are about to enter the more comic book side of things, with costumes and masks all over the place and… well, if your interest is piqued I suggest just giving it a watch. The big bad bat has not shown up yet, but he seems to be peeking out a little to say hello to that cowardly and superstitious lot.

“Gotham” season four premieres on September 21 on Fox.

“Star Trek: The Next Generation” Titans Vinyl mini-figures unboxing & review

It’s time for not just another blind box unboxing of mini-figures, but another set of Star Trek figures.

Last time, we looked at Titan Vinyls from Titan Merchandise of Star Trek: The Original Series, which we raved about. On this episode, we fast forward deeper into their timeline to look at the “Star Trek: The Next Generation – Make It So Collection” of mystery mini-figures. Featuring most of the core crew members and a few hostile alien races, this was easily our #1 box ever from Titan Merchandise. We liked the TOS figures a lot, but these TNG figures are easily the best mini-figures Titan has made to date. Check out the video to see for yourself.

“Star Trek: Discovery” trailer makes explosive debut at SDCC 2017

It’s time to boldly go where no man has gone before, as Star Trek returns to TV (sort of) with a brand new series. We have seen a few teasers but during SDCC 2017, we got our first full-length trailer of “Star Trek: Discovery”.

I am looking forward to new Trek stories, but I must say that this trailer is pretty jarring and seems to spotlight the best moments of the show with no context. It’s a disturbing trend with sci-fi and superhero movies for the past few years, and this is a very good example of that. This is a hodge-podge of big reveals and exciting moments that look cool, but also give away things I would rather not have known. In fact, I would have preferred more info on why I should care about any of this crew, instead of all the cool things that will happen with no reason as to why they are cool-looking. But, that is just my opinion.

On the plus side, raisin-face Egyptian Klingons.

“Star Trek: Discovery” premieres September 24th on CBS All Access.

If you came to this video hoping to learn how to be a voice-over actor or actress, you are in the wrong spot.

Here are a few clips from this panel in case you don’t believe how good it really was:

A fan asked prolific voice actor Steven Blum about the differences between voicing Spike Speigel from “Cowboy Bebop” and Mugen from “Samurai Champloo”, which gave us some interesting info behind the shows. Then things got weird with Dante Basco and Steven’s girlfriend and fellow voice actor, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn. Real weird.
