Peek into the Cyberpunk Noir World of ‘Altered Carbon’


2017 has been a good year for Netflix original series, perhaps almost TOO good. Just in the last few months, we’ve been treated to Stranger Things 2, Mindhunter, The Punisher, Godless, Dark, and more. In fact, it’s been almost impossible to keep up, which is a great problem to have.

2018 looks to be just as dazzling. Altered Carbon, based on the cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, is an “intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future.”

Holiday Gift Guide 2017: TV Shows on Blu-ray + Digital

There’s always an abundance of DVD and Blu-ray offerings for the holiday season, many of them in box set form. Complete series, various season collections, and standalone seasons – whatever you’re looking to grab for someone, there’s something waiting. Here’s a rundown of some recent releases that should be solid gifting for the pop culture tv geek in your life:

Buffy The Vampire Slayer The Complete Series: Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Buffy The Vampire Slayer has once again been compiled into a complete collection. I say once again, as there have been a few different sets over the years (I know, as I had at least one of them). While hardcore fans can probably skip out on this one, it is definitely a beautifully put together package for anyone you want to introduce the world Buffy and the Scoobies to. This set features the extras from previous separate individual season collections, along with a reprint of the Dark Horse Season 8 Issue 1 comic book and a page to colour, illustrated by Season 8 artist George Jannety.

The Strain The Complete Series: Speaking of vampires, the recently completed FX series The Strain is now available in a no frills, nice boxed set of its four seasons. Created by Guillermo Del Toro, Carlton Cuse and Chuck Hogan, the series lasted for four successful seasons. The DVDs feature a variety of extras, and also some attractive slipcases for each individual season. For fans of episodic gore, The Strain is your choice this holiday season.

‘Godless’ Is the Western Series We’ve Been Waiting For

It may seem strange—to those of us who’ve become accustomed to TV shows which obfuscate the narrative to generate suspense—that the first episode of Netflix’s Godless lays everything bare. Yet, that is exactly what this show does.

What Happens When Revenge Isn’t Enough: ‘The Punisher’

Netflix’s first season of The Punisher picks up where Season 2 of Daredevil left off, in a world where everyone thinks Frank Castle is dead and that’s just fine with him.

Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle/The Punisher

For those entering Netflix’s Marvel universe for the first time, here’s what you need to know: Frank Castle, an ex-Marine who fought in Afghanistan, transformed into The Punisher after his family was gunned down as part of a drug deal sting operation gone bad. Frank then goes after those responsible, becoming a vicious vigilante who lives by by the code of “an eye for an eye.”

“Nothing’s Gonna Go Back To The Way It Was”: Stranger Things, Season 2


Netflix’s original series Stranger Things was one of the biggest surprise hits of 2016 so it’s not an exaggeration to say the show’s second season has been one of the most anticipated TV events of 2017.

The second season of a hit TV show is always a gamble: will it be as good as the previous one or will it suffer the dreaded sophomore slump? If you were concerned that Stranger Things 2 would not live up to its reputation, have no fear; at four episodes in, it’s outstanding. After all, there are bigger evils in the world of Hawkins, Indiana to worry about.
