2016!!!! Mr. Gene and I are back to talk about our favorite tv and movies for 2015. Being that this is a super long show, you’re going to be listening to part 1.

For this portion of the episode, we start off with some tv series reviews – Jessica Jones Season 1 and Doctor Who Series 9.

Movie wise – We talked about Star Wars The Force Awakens, The Fantastic Four, Terminator Genisys, Ant-Man, Mad Max Fury Road, Jurassic World, Kingsmen, and Inside Out.


X-Men-Logo Is there enough room on the small screen for such big screen heroes? Short answer – YES. Long answer – Get crankin’ now.  Netflix has 5 Marvel series with one ready to go – Daredevil. CW has Arrow and Flash. Fox has Gotham. ABC has Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter. NBC is kinda unsure about Constantine but its worth a look and possibly Heroes Reborn. CBS is looking to snag Supergirl.  TNT might have a live action Teen Titan series with the pilot to be filmed sometime this year and Rumor about Krypton on the SYFY Channel. An X-Men tv series will be interesting but how will it approach what has been done in movies will decide its success and not the mentioned competition.

More super power could be coming to the small screen, with an “X-Men” TV series confirmed to be in the very early stages of development at Fox. Negotiations are currently under way to develop a live-action show based on the long-running comic book brand, which has already launched eight feature films including the upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse.” See More:Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp Join ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Though 20th Century Fox holds the film rights to the franchise, in order to use the heroes on Fox, they’ll need to get “X-Men” comics publisher Marvel to sign off on the deal for TV. Rumblings about an “X-Men” show have been in circulation for some time. Last April, Simon Kinberg, writer of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” told Collider that he thought an “X-Men” television series was a good idea. via ‘X-Men’ TV Series: Fox Developing Live-Action Show | Variety.
