Yahoo Screen, Community, Sherlock, Daredevil, The Killing

Yahoo Screen

* Community has been renewed for a sixth season. The catch is that it will be available on Yahoo’s streaming platform, Yahoo Screen. Currently Yahoo Screen appears to be a very confused repository of clips, trailers, music videos, and Saturday Night Live reruns.

Sherlock

* Another of my favorite shows will be coming back. In spite of the two main actors being movie stars, Sherlock has been renewed. Martin (The Hobbit) Freeman and Benedict (Star Trek Into Darkness) Cumberbatch will be returning for a fourth season.

Netflix

* I’m really looking forward to Netflix’ Daredevil series. Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) is Daredevil, Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) is Karen Page, and Elden Henson is Foggy Nelson. Strangely Vincent D’Onofrio is playing the Kingpin. Obviously he is the wrong size so I’m curious how he will be portrayed.

* On August 1st, Netflix will have the new streaming season of The Killing. I’m looking forward to watching it as I enjoy the two very flawed lead characters but The Killing never quite gelled correctly. The Killing always had potential but never seemed to realize it.

Valentine’s Day This ‘n’ That

House of Cards

 

* What a nice Valentine’s Day present from Netflix – season two of House of Cards. This series is awesome (though not quite on par with the British original) and Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright Penn are simply wonderful as a power couple.

Hulu

 

* Community is finally back. I caught the first two episodes of the new season on Hulu and they may have brought back the magic they lost last season.

Amazon Prime

 

* I forgot to mention that Amazon Prime has added season 4 of Justified to their instant offerings. We blitzed through all 13 episodes over the holidays and thoroughly enjoyed them.
