The Netflix ‘Ingobnerable’ trailer.

That’s not a typo, presumably: I suppose that’s how you say ‘Ungovernable’ in Spanish. It looks like it’s a show about the First Lady of Mexico, on the run after her apparent murder of her estranged husband the President of Mexico; and there are enough scenes involving firearms to raise my hopes that this will be suitably action-packed. Obviously it’s going to be subtitled, but I don’t mind those. Out March 24th.

…OK, I’ll admit it. I’m kind of hoping that this will be an R-rated telenovela with an American-sized budget and Hollywood-level special effects. I’d watch it.  I’m dead to shame that way.

The First ‘Bright’ Trailer (Netflix Urban Fantasy).

I first mentioned it here.  Short version: Will Smith in a buddy cop movie.  With an Orc.  Looks promising: it comes out in December.

The ‘Iron Fist’ series trailer.

The preparations are complete.  Now Marvel prepares for the next stage of its machinations. Which will be awesome, because a Defenders series probably means… yup.  Squirrel Girl.  At the bare minimum, there’ll be a cameo.

(Iron Fist drops March 17th.)

So, the Netflix/treadmill thing might actually work.

I walked for a half hour while watching the beginning of the pilot for Supergirl.  Actual exercise was had and it’s obviously better for me than obsessively doing the social media click cycle looking for responses, likes, shares, and — God forbid — people signing up for my Patreon. Oh, and processing rejection slips: I’m finally starting to get some of those.  I was starting to worry that I was sending this stuff out and they were hitting the equivalent of a brick wall, or something like that*.

So, productive day, in its way.

*Sure, I’d rather cash checks. But one of the submissions got bounced because the magazine was going out of business, which isn’t the story’s fault, at least. Which is a morbid way of looking at it, to be sure, but then: ‘morbid’ describes the publishing industry right down to a T.

The iBoy Netflix trailer.

You know, I think that I’m going to give this one a shot.

Yes, sure, the science is absolutely absurd. Then again, so was Spectral’s, and I had a pretty good time. IBoy is coming out on Netflix on January 27th, and the kid’s superpowers remind me a lot of the Drummer’s in Planetary. Also: if you’ve never actually read Planetary then you should probably redress that unfortunate condition that you’re currently in. It’s one of the best superhero comic series ever written.  As in, in the top five.  Maybe in the top three.

‘The Siege of Jadotville.’

Sweet suffering Christ, but this sounds like a thoroughly Irish* kind of situation.

The full ‘Luke Cage’ trailer.

Still looking pretty good. I do like the idea of smart bricks. This continues to promise to deliver on that.

…Also, Marvel’s bringing Iron Fist to Netflix.

2017, because… well. Because they apparently cannot … because it’s… because I don’t know how they’re doing it, man. Oh, I know the basic reason: it’s because Marvel keeps winning. But that doesn’t explain the why. Still, they’ve earned at least a look-see:

Hey, do you want to see the Luke Cage trailer? …Say “Yes, Moe.”

Because… yes. Yes, this will do nicely. Wow. Yeah.

YES.  YES, THAT IS HOW YOU PLAY A BRICK. A SMART BRICK. ONE WHO UNDERSTANDS HOW TO CLEAR A ROOM.

Wow. This Norwegian show ‘Occupied’ is really interesting.

I don’t have time to watch it, but I might have to anyway.  Basically, Occupied is about the Russians kind of quietly taking over Norway in response to Norway stopping fossil fuel energy production. Interesting for three reasons: one, it’s weird to see an ostensibly Green politician actually like nuclear energy*.  Two, it’s weird hearing this much English being spoken in a foreign television production. Three, the first episode at least is remarkably clear-headed about… well, I don’t do politics anymore, so suffice it to say that my readers might find this show of interest.

On Netflix, so freely available there if you have a subscription.

*Although that may simply be my local experience talking. For all I know Europeans love the stuff.
