5 more TV shows on Netflix to watch in preparation for Salt lake Comic Con 2014
August 5, 2014
With the announcement that Eve Myles is coming to Salt Lake Comic Con, Torchwood could be higher on everyone’s list. After all, the relationship between Myles’ and John Barrowman’s characters formed the backbone of that show. I don’t know if it beats out Farscape or Hercules, but it gets closer.
The Tick – While most people associate Patrick Warburton with Puddy or Kronk, for me he is The Tick (and the captain from Soarin’ over California). This TV show is so funny. If you are looking for a live-action superhero comedy, see The Tick. There are nine episodes of epic hilarity delivered with dry humor on Netflix.
The Walking Dead – The AMC sensation is something that everyone is talking about. Cultural relevancy makes this a show to see, and with the arrival of David Morrisey, The Walking Dead should be on your list. Netflix has three seasons available.
Eureka – Offbeat science fiction comedy, Eureka lives up to its name for a TV channel that has decided to dumb down its brand and its movies. You will be shouting “EUREKA!” when you watch this show, which crosses over with Warehouse 13. Matt Frewer will be at Salt lake Comic Con 2014, giving you the opportunity to see some of his newer work.
When Michael Rosenbaum and Kevin Conroy were announced, I had no idea that they worked on the same series. (Is the plural “serials”?) Justice League’s first episodes bring the two together with Conroy as Batman and Rosenbaum as the incredibly funny Flash. Not every character appears in every show, but the episodes are well-written and short with only a couple of plot holes that the viewer should forgive – (Why would Batman build the space station and then not join the Justice League? How do the Flash and Batman get up there? Do they have to take a rocket or do they hitch a ride with one of the other characters?)
I did not grow up with The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. However, I know a couple of people who have and the show evokes the same feelings of nostalgia as Saturday morning cartoons do for the older set. With the announcement of Johnny Yong Bosch joining Jason David Frank at Salt Lake Comic Con, it’s time to dust off the pseudo martial arts skills and see what crazy monster the Rangers are fighting this week. (To be fair, the stars of the show have actual martial arts skills as Frank proved in his MMA debut.)
