Review: Marvel’s Agent Carter S2

Ever since Agent Carter season 1 ended, I’d hoped the series would continue for a couple of more years. My wish came true – partially. There was a riveting season 2, but unfortunately there won’t be any more seasons of my favourite female non-superhero of the MCU. (I count the Marvel TV shows and Netflix shows as the MCU as well.)

Pretty much like one of my favourite shows of all times: Supernatural. Only, in Supernatural there are two brothers and Supernatural deals with Fantasy and Horror, not Sci Fi. Continue reading

Review – Xena: Warrior Princess

Xena: Warrior Princess had always been the series I’d get back to one day. I had caught a couple of episodes on TV, but never followed the series while it ran. Xena ran from 1995 till 2001 and only now, in 2012, have I taken the time to really sit down and watch it. A few weeks ago I started on it and I raced through the 6 seasons like you wouldn’t believe it. Continue reading
