Archive for the tag “Netflix”


I have never done this before, but I feel it necessary to take this development and broadcast it to the world.

THE FLASH, TV’s best superhero show and an absolute joy, has arrived on Netflix, a platform you all have access to in some capacity. Read more…


“Riding the Staircar to Heaven”- Arrested Development Season 4 Review

Arrested Development Season 4 Gob Will Arnett Jesus Illusion

There are some spoilers in this review. Now you know that, so mind yourself accordingly.

They warned us. They warned us that Season 4 should be treated like the first act of a movie instead of a season of television, and we just didn’t listen.

Many of the negative reactions I’ve been reading against this Netflix dump of mystery and cutoffs are from people who took all the times that sentiment has been reiterated and tossed them out in the garbage like some kind of refuse or Debris.

Chekhov’s Gunman is a film and television blog moderated by Kevin Lanigan, a future writer of movies and TV and a struggling sculpture artist in a time when marble is scarce. There’s probably some spoilers somewhere in here, so don’t blame me because I warned you, sonnyjack.

I am ready to welcome the sins of Westeros back into my life again. The boobs, and the midgets, and the incest… I want all of it. It’s like welcoming a dirty, crusty friend back into your life after his long HBO-fueled absence. Our noble dwarf Tyrion Lannister, the ever-slappable Joffrey Baratheon, and their entire gamut of back-stabbing winter-fearers are going to waltz back into our living rooms (or out of your computer screen if you’re one of those naughty children who pirates things) and we couldn’t be more glad.

The fervor and fan art that Game of Thrones inspires is daunting. It’s also the perfect encapsulation of where television is at right now. Read more…
