Travelers renewed for Season 2!

Netflix’s Travelers is a very interesting twist on time travel, and I really enjoyed season 1. I don’t think I’m spoiling anything by saying that Season 1 ended with a total pile up of plot lines, and we really didn’t know what was going on.

Being a sci-fi fan, I was worried about that we would experience  the worst case scenario. You know what I’m talking about. You watch a great show, and it ends with a cliffhanger, and then never gets renewed again. The horror!

Well, good news my friends, according to Deadline, Traveler’s was renewed for Season 2!

The creator and writer, Brad Wright, is going to be at the helm for this season as well, which is great news.

Will Smith, Orcs, and super weapons!?!? Netflix Bright coming in December

 

Do I really have to say much more to get you interested? The trailer starts out looking like a typical LA Cop movie or TV show, that is until you realize the guy with the shotgun isn’t wearing a mask. Then what’s going on with the two girls? Why is Will Smith holding a sword? Check it out yourself in the trailer below.

 

According to this Engadget article, this $90 Million movie is going to feature Will Smith in a world where humans and fantasy creates live side by side.

The only bad news I have for you is that it isn’t coming out until December 2017. I’m really looking forward to seeing some more trailers.

Narcos – More Great Netflix Original Television

I’m generally not a big fan of crime shows, my wife loves them, but with the exception of the original “Law and Order” (Lenny rules!), and “The Americans”, I don’t watch them. The Netflix Original Series “Narcos” is the exception.

Narcos follows the rise of cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar. The show is Pablo_Escobar_Mugnarrated by the character Steve Murphy, a DEA agent in Columbia, and the show is filmed in Columbia. It’s also a “period” show, taking place during the 80’s.

If reading isn’t your thing though, you may not like the show. Taking place in Columbia, as you would imagine, Spanish is spoken a lot. Luckily for those of us who don’t speak the language, it’s subtitled. I personally don’t mind, I pretty much keep subtitles on all the time.

The show is pretty fast paced, and you really see the characters change over time. The “newb” DEA agent quickly turns into a jaded veteran, and the main character, Pablo Escobar, starts out as someone that you can relate to pretty easily, even though he’s a smuggler and getting into the drug trade, and you just can’t help but watch in horror as he slips down the dark rabbit hole.

I was a little slow to get on the Narcos bus. I started watching Season 1 after Season 2 had already came out. I can’t regret the delay too much, because now I have a whole 2 seasons to binge. 🙂 I actually figured I would give it a try one day, and ended up watching all of season 1 over a weekend.

One of the aspects of the show that amazes me, and I’m not giving much away here, is the massive amounts of money that Pablo has. He throws around millions of dollars like they are candy bars. I just can’t imagine having access to that kind of money. According to a Wikipedia’s Article on Pablo Escobar, his cartel “supplied 80% of the cocaine smuggled into the United States”. As you can imagine, that would be a metric ton of money.

Also, Columbia is beautiful! Wow.

If you need a show to watch, I have to recommend Narcos.
