Don’t Look Away From a New Season of Netflix’s ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’


On January 2, 2018, Netflix released a new promotional video on their A Series of Unfortunate Events Facebook page. The new season will continue the story of the Baudelaire orphans and Count Olaf.  The new episodes are set to premier on March 30, 2018.

Based on the 13 novel book series, by Daniel Handler, Netflix released the first season on January 13, 2017.

The series was summarized on Wikipedia as the following:

“When a mysterious fire kills their parents, the Baudelaire children are placed into the care of their distant relative Count Olaf, an actor who is determined to claim the family fortune for himself. Following Olaf’s failed attempt, the Baudelaires set out to elude Olaf and uncover the mystery behind a secret society from their parents’ past.”

If you haven’t watched the first season, prepare to binge watch in preparation for the upcoming new episodes. This show is worth the watch! Neil Patrick Harris does a fantastic job as Count Olaf! The entire cast is very good, and it’s hard to stop at just one episode.

The first season has 8 episodes that encompass books 1-4. The second season, releasing in March, will contain 10 episodes, covering books 5-9. It has been confirmed that a third season is approved and will cover the final 4 books.

While you wait re-watch or catch up on Season One over at Netflix.

The X-Files Season 11 Premiere… Sucked.


The truth may still be out there, but I honestly don’t care any more.

The X-Files returned to Fox last night after a year-long hiatus (following a 14-year hiatus before that.)

And my gut reaction immediately following its broadcast was “What in the hell did I just watch?” followed by “That was boring” and then “Did they just do what I think they did to Scully?!”

Apparently I wasn’t alone. On social media, many fans were left confused and angry.

I concur. Although I was more angry than confused.

There are SPOILERS ahead, so turn back now if you don’t want to ruin the… excitement?

“My Struggle III” is one of the messiest hours of television I’ve watched in recent memory.

The episode begins with a montage of the Cigarette Smoking Man’s history with alien tech, his involvement in the hoaxed moon landing and a bunch of other things that are supposed to tell the audience that he’s The Most Interesting Man in the World, and create a unified theory of every conspiracy theory ever.

Oh, also he’s Mulder’s father and his real name is Carl Bush.

Then we proceed to find out that the events of last season’s over-the-top cliffhanger was just a dream… er… vision in Scully’s head, apparently being beamed into her brain by her long lost son, William.

Mulder spends about half of his on screen time in car as we listen to a truly awkward inner monologue that sounds like a bad Sam Spade fanfic.

David Duchovny looks utterly bored in this episode, and I had to wonder if he was preoccupied with cashing his check and picking out a new car, or just wondering what he was going to have for lunch.

And Scully? Well, given that Gillian Anderson had little more to do than vacillate between being unconscious and panicking like Joyce Byers, she did the best she could do.

And while Scully tried to save Mulder, he wound up saving her from a rejected James Bond goon who tries to smother her to death with a pillow.

(Because of course he did.)

Most of Scully’s scenes were spent in bed.

Speaking of which…

The episode ends with the audience finding out that Scully was roofied by the Cigarette Smoking Man and somehow impregnated with Alien Baby — either via “science experiment,” or (more unsettlingly) as the result of the Cigarette Smoking Man having his way with her.

Literally, it was such a completely WTF moment that I had to rewind the last few minutes of the episode to make sure I was fully understanding what just happened here.

Gillian Anderson has said that she’s out after this season.

Between reports of her receiving far less money than David Duchovny, grievances about a nearly all-male creative team and the piss poor treatment of Scully… I can’t blame her.

I think I’m officially out after this episode, too.

The X-Files revival is proof that you can never really go home again. And that while there’s a huge trend for networks and studios to cash in on nostalgia by reviving beloved TV series and movie franchises, sometimes it’s better to just revisit those shows in our memories.

Final Score 2/10


Will the New Netflix / Dreamworks ‘She-Ra’ Have The Power?


Netflix has announced they will be bringing the 80’s icon She-Ra back as an exclusive show they are creating in conjunction with Dreamworks. Noelle Stevenson, is listed as the Executive Producer. She’s best known as the creator of Nimona, and part of the Eisner-winning team on Boom Studios’ Lumberjanes.

Set to be released sometime this year, the once “Princess of Power” will be coming back, and it sounds like she will still be a sword wielding princess.  Netflix released the following comment in their press release.

“..fans are in store for an epic and timely tale that celebrates female friendship and empowerment, lead by a warrior princess tailor made for today.

The original was an epic tale that celebrated female friendship and empowerment too and was led by a warrior princess, so okay.  Sounds good so far. A bit worried about the words “made for today,” but okay.  I mean the new Voltron is amazing!  It is a modern take on it and the art and story are spot on.

The New Look of She-Ra

It all sounds good so far, but a lot of people are having issues with the image they showed.  First of all most of the fanfare shows the old She-ra. People are excited because they are seeing what they know and love.

Then, they showed the actual “approved” image. Honestly, I hope this is just an in-between because it’s mid expression, otherwise, I’m really not too sure how I feel about it, I would need to see more.

Like I said, it’s really hard to tell from just this image, so I’m holding out hope that when we see more it will feel like the Princess of Power.

You can make a new show using an old IP, but you can’t just throw everything out the window for a “modern tale.” The essence of what made it beloved really needs to stay in there somehow. I’m really hoping that’s what they will do here.  Netflix really does seem to get that. Most fans understand that a new version of a beloved show is going to still be a “new”version, but in order to still be a “version” it has to retain some of itself.

For a Bit, People Were Worried

People were not happy about the rumor of it being like Jem, with a female rock band. That was too far away from the “essence” of She-Ra.  It was shared on He-Man.org:

“We’ll probably relaunch She-Ra featuring a rock-and-roll band and a girl with long blond hair who will have a guitar instead of a sword. And we will probably do programming shorts directed at new digital media, such as telephones, for example, where we start to introduce these characters to brand-new consumers.”

Thankfully, it’s looking like this was not true, and from something said several years ago. I think people can calm down about it. Most agree a story about a rock-and-roll band and a lead with long blond hair works for Jem or Valhallen (from Dexter’s Laboratory), they don’t think it would be a good way to “modernize” She-Ra.

I think that success lies in a balance struck between old and new. Most fans seem willing to give a new show a try.  As long as they don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater, and keep some of what made She-Ra, well, She-Ra, I will bet the new show will have the power.

Making Comics for a Living is Hard… So Don’t Quit Your Day Job


Making a living in comics is hard. Making a living as a freelance artist is hard. Any kind of art job is hard.

I think we can all agree on that.

But what I can’t understand is why people think that if they do art for a living they will suddenly be “free.”

I’ve been around awhile and I have seen a staggering number of people shoot themselves in the foot and end up far worse off because they want to do “comics full time.” The one I hear over and over is “I just don’t want to work retail.”

Yes, working retail sucks, we’ve all been there at one time or another, but comics is not the “get out” card people seem to think it is. When people start asking others for their opinions, I’ve noticed most will just agree and say things like “oh you’re so good, you could do it.”

No one is willing to state the truth.  Part of it is because the truth and negativity are often confused as being the same thing. No one wants to be “that person.”

The reality is that person is probably being the better friend by watching out for you and telling you the truth and not just what you want to hear. I’ve seen more people get into trouble because they wanted to do something they really weren’t prepared for, and everyone told them only positive things, and the person did it and ended up in a really bad place.

Positivity is not always honesty, and honesty is not always negativity.  

How Hard Could It Be?

For one thing comic book (and all freelance work) is sporadic. Even if you are one of the lucky few that get a paying comics job, it isn’t going to be long term. It’s usually piece work and when it ends you have to move onto another gig, which isn’t always available.

The jobs that are more secure (the ones everyone wants like storyboard artist for (insert company name here) are super difficult to get. If there are 1,000 people out there trying for a comics gig full time (I know it’s higher than that) maybe a couple will get it.

The page rates are not good and they aren’t going to improve. Not when there are so many willing to work for peanuts just to “get a break.” And not when there are people in other countries willing to work for low pay because in their country it’s a “good job.” Expect lower pay, not increased security.

Comics and Money

A lot of the comics gigs out there don’t pay well.

When you break down the time it takes you to do the job, you are probably getting the same or less as working retail.  

I once saw someone say something like “for skilled work, like comics art, writers should pay about $20 an hour.”  

One, that’s not going to happen — especially not for indie projects.

And two, of the massive amount of people who think they are good enough, there is a much lower percentage that would be “skilled labor” enough to truly handle the job.  

Everyone and their dog wants to do comics. Webcomics have lowered the barrier for entry, but the does not mean that just because you “do comics” you are actually qualified to be paid to “do comics.”

I’ve seen amazing artists online — truly gifted people who can’t make it. Those who can’t find full time work making art. Those who are doing comics, but work more than full-time hours for part-time pay.  

If you can’t make it working retail, you might want to rethink being a “full time artist.” If you don’t want to work retail find a job in another field and do comics in your spare time until you can find the paying gigs you want.

DO NOT just up and quit and decide “I’m going to be a full time artist” simply because you don’t like your job. It isn’t going to go the way you think it’s going to go. We have friends working freelance in comics, or have book deals, and they still work their jobs because it isn’t enough to get by on. And if you have responsibilities like kids or pets, your choice isn’t just about you.

“The Cake is a Lie.”

I’ve seen a lot of artists say things like “Well (insert name here) is doing comics full-time so it can be done.”  

Or “She was poor and did comics and now she has (insert number) of followers on social media”….and other examples. 

When you look into it a lot of people doing comics “full-time” aren’t actually making enough money to live on “full-time.”

I can’t tell you how many “full-time” people do comics “full-time” but have a spouse or partner who works a good job and that’s paying for them to do comics “full-time.” If you have someone willing to let you go for it while they support you, then by all means do it!

But if you are the one having to support yourself, do NOT fall for this.

Research your idols. I know of several off the top of my head that claim they are “full-time” that have spouses that are nurses, teachers, investment bankers, etc. They are technically “full-time” and aren’t lying about that, but it’s a skewed truth that catches a lot of unsuspecting creatives off guard.

People jump at the idea that they could quit what they hate and be “full-time” artists too.  Just don’t fall for it!   

Also all “success” on the internet can be faked. Site traffic, social media, crowdfunding — they can all be padded and gamed to appear far more successful than what they are. It really is not hard and it just takes knowing where to spend some money. (And it’s also not hard to figure out who’s faking it if you know what to look for!)

Don’t fall for “success” without knowing what is real and what isn’t.  

Life is hard and expensive.

Look, the bills don’t go away if you can’t pay them. The way the government is going, it’s just going to get harder for everyone to make a living, not just creatives.  

Established comics people are writing articles about how they can’t afford health insurance and housing, and other creators rally around them because they are also afraid of ending up like this.  

There’s been enough of these stories now to indicate a pattern — a long-established one. 

So don’t go down that path. Not until you figure out what you need and find a way to make sure you have it. Life is going to throw everything it has at you. Don’t make it easier to get so down you can’t get back up.

A Cautionary Tale

My husband and I were people who had to go full-time into freelance to survive. It wasn’t our first choice. Thanks to an unexpected layoff and a lack of job opportunities, we were thrown into it.

We had health insurance, good money, and made extra income doing comics. The entire time my husband was laid off we tried to find something else and that’s with paying comics work.  

It took working long, long hours to create several streams of income until we finally got ourselves out of that and into a situation where we create for a living. Unfortunately we also got very, very far behind financially and it took years to claw our way out of it.

Comics work helped, but is NOT our main focus now. It’s too unreliable, and it’s actually the lowest paying thing we do.

It is possible to make a full-time living as a comics creative, but I can’t tell you how ridiculously hard it all was and we barely pulled through.

We have a relatively successful online comic and contacts in the industry, which led to being able to pitch TV shows to Hollywood among other things. We have quite a few things in the works and things are finally somewhat stable.

Unlike many younger creatives, we also had a mortgage and kids and pets to pay for — and no safety net. I can’t begin to tell you how much energy, opportunity cost, lost time with our kids, and anxiety attacks (that put me in the ER) it  took to get here.

I’m not trying to tell people to not do comics or art. I’m just saying think about it.

Don’t just quit your job or move far away from your support system, because you might get a job in the field. I’m saying be smart about how you do it.

Some jobs suck, but having no money at all sucks worse. I guarantee you that for every one of you talking about going “full-time” or getting a job at (insert tv/comics/publishing company name here) there are thousands of others doing the same thing.

The comic book industry is in decline, and there aren’t enough paying jobs to accommodate everyone who wants to work in the business. And what few jobs there are don’t pay nearly as well as they used to.

Build up your art career until you can get to a point where you can do this and then, cautiously, think about doing it full-time.  

It’s not ALL bad…

If you have a way to survive and go for your dreams, then by all means DO IT! But just make sure you aren’t shooting yourself in the foot.  There are opportunities out there, you just have to have the skill, drive, and imagination to find them.  

Sure some people get “lucky,” but most of the time it takes years and good planning. Know when you should pull back. Do not put yourself in bad situations that could ruin what you’ve built. Always have a “Plan B.”

Don’t give up, but don’t be foolhardy enough to throw your whole life into stress and turmoil to reach some level of “success” that isn’t really “success” to begin with.

Netflix’s New Show ‘The Toys That Made Us’ is a Must See


Netflix has another winner with the new show The Toys That Made Us.  Set to be an 8 part documentary series, 4 of the episodes are already up and ready for viewing. You will most likely want to binge watch this show.  It’s simply amazing. As a former toy collector and dealer, and a super fan of 80’s pop-culture, this was just so much fun!

So far the four episodes that are up cover Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man, and GI Joe. Each show starts off with a fun, cheeky, and slightly catchy tune, about “The Toys That Made Us.” Then each episode takes you back in time to an “aha!” moment from the beginning of each toy line. The rest of the episode explains how the toys began, where they went, and how they ended up in today’s market.  My favorite part is that they got the original toy designers, marketers, CEO’s, etc. to come on and tell the viewer  how our favorite toys came to be.

Episode 1: Star Wars

Don’t panic, this “Episode 1” isn’t a “Menace,” although they do discuss Star Wars: Episode 1 later in the episode.  Without spoiling too much for you, this episode is about how the Star Wars toy line came into existence.  How Kenner’s lawyer (with a sense of humor) got them to agree to an incredible profit margin. And where the toys went when Hasbro purchased Kenner.  It also explains how 3 3/4″ “action figures” came into being. If nothing else, it was simply amazing to see all the original toys and the rocket launching Boba Fett! The amount of these toys sold and the financials are amazing.

Also the “bootleg” figures were worth the watch all on their own.

Episode 2: Barbie

Barbie has been around for decades and her back story was a bit different and a lot more risque that I thought.  Also, I know a lot of collectors like the original, but I’m so glad she doesn’t look like she did in the 50’s anymore. That face mold always freaked me out.
This episode takes a look at the struggles that her “creators” faced when getting Barbie to market. Apparently pointy breasts on dolls was a “no no” to the male dominated industry. Luckily, they found an angle that mothers could get behind and would support.  My favorite part was where they discussed the three different “package” designs they had for the original Ken. Just watch, and you will see what I mean.

I was disappointed in the fact that they did mention Barbie’s competition in Jem, Monster High and Bratz, but they didn’t do more with the Jem segment than what they did.  I loved Barbie, but I really loved Jem.  They really glossed over the Monster High dolls too, which is interesting because I believe they outsold Barbie for a time.  It was most likely skimmed over because it was a much more recent line, and the show is based on nostalgia.

Episode 3: He-Man

I think this one was my favorite episode, but also the one that irritated me a bit, as I will explain later. This episode talks about why Mattel created the He-Man line, what the inspirations were for it and how they got the iconic name “He-Man: Masters of the Universe” and how the creators felt about the name.
I will say that the members of the team behind this line are entertaining and fun. The story about how the mini comics came to be and why there was a television show is worth the watch.  I used to watch He-man and She-ra all the time.  I loved seeing all the toys and hearing how they came to be.

So why am I irritated? Well they barely cover She-ra: Princess of Power.  She-ra deserved more coverage than she gets, and they actually kind of blame her for the downfall of the line. But it’s probably more to do with 1. The rise of gaming systems 2. That “movie.” 3.The fact that the later ideas for He-man toys were frankly kind of dumb and 4. They kept selling new figures, but didn’t keep the core figures up for kids to buy.  It’s great if you can get a Stinkor, or a Sy-Klone, but kids who were new to the line couldn’t get He-man or Skeletor. That probably had a lot to do with the drop in sales. My husband talks of seeing the discounts and a wall of Scareglows at $1.00 each and how he regrets not buying them all.   But my point is that She-ra deserved more discussion and she didn’t kill off the line.

Episode 4: GI Joe

Yo Joe!  The final episode that is up in the series discusses the history of GI Joe. How it went from a pitch of “Barbies for boys” led to the “action figures” name they adopted.  How figures went from Barbie sized to the smaller figures and how the comics and television show resurrected the toy line in the 80’s. I remember being so excited to come home and watch that night’s mini-series episode. What made it extra fun for me was that I was the only red-headed girl in my class, so guess who got to be Scarlet at recess every day.

The team that brought us the smaller figures in the 80’s were on hand to discuss where it all came from and how Cobra came into being.  Again, as a person who grew up with these toys, it was so great to see the people behind them tell their stories!

Overall the show is simply fantastic.  Watching each episode, and remembering these toys from when I was a kid brought me joy, and fun, and nostalgia, and loss, and….pride. I was really proud to have been there and played with these toys.

If you have some time, I would clear a few hours, pop some popcorn (or grab your favorite snack) and binge watch these. You might want to stay off eBay afterwards though.




FNAF 6: Watch ‘Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator’ Gameplay Videos

FNAF-6-Freddy-Fazbear | Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator | Five Nights at Freddy's 6

Surprise! Five Nights at Freddy’s 6 (or rather Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator) was suddenly dropped this week, and we’ve got some gameplay footage for your to check out.

Series creator Scott Cawthorn released the sequel/spin-off on December 4, and the internet went insane. And best of all, this installment is 100% free to download.

The new game is bit more varied than previous series installments, as it now requires you to run a Fazbear’s Pizzeria as a owner/operator. So we’ve got some serious resource management going on in addition to avoiding those horrifying jumpscares.

Freddy, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy - The Cast of Five Nights at Freddy's. Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator | Five Nights at Freddy's 6
Freddy, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy – The Cast of Five Nights at Freddy’s.

Polygon has more on Cawthorn’s secrecy, and what ultimately lead to Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator

Cawthon signaled the release of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator back in June, when he said that he’d effectively stopped working on a sixth Five Nights at Freddy’s game.

“For the last month or so I’ve been dropping hints about a new game; and it’s true that I’d been working on one (call it FNaF 6 if you’d like.)” Cawthon said. “But after forcing myself to keep working on it day after day, I realized something: I just don’t want to work on this. With each game’s release, I think the expectations get higher and higher for the next, and rightfully so. Each game SHOULD be better than the last! But that pressure starts to mount, and I fear that I’ve been neglecting other things in my life for the sake of trying to keep up with those mounting expectations.

“So, after giving this a lot of thought; I’ve decided that I’m going to stop working on it. I’m not going to reveal anything else about what the game was, and I’ve asked other people involved to never divulge anything either. It’s just not going to be talked about.”

The game is a lot of fun, and has much more depth than just being a series of jumpscares. You can FNAF 6 for free on Steam here.

WATCH – ‘Bendy and the Ink Machine’ Chapter 3 Gameplay

Bendy and the Ink Machine Gameplay Videos | Indie Horror Gameplay Videos

Bendy fans, rejoice… or recoil in terror… as the third chapter of the indie horror sensation Bendy and the Ink Machine (BATIM) was released last week.

The third chapter of developer theMeatly’s gothic 1920’s cartoon-inspired game is anything but a Silly Symphony. In this chapter, players will meet Alice Angel (apparently a nod to Betty Boop) but is she a good girl or a bad girl? (Hint, I think the halo is just for show.)

Clownfish TV’s own Kneon and SquidKing play through the third chapter of Bendy and meet the mysterious Alice Angel. You can see gameplay footage for yourself below.

Bendy and the Ink Machine Chapter 3 is greatly expanded from the previous two BATIM chapters, taking well over an hour to complete one ending. Chapter 3 also feels much less claustrophobic than the previous two installments, and has tons of secrets for players to unlock. Also, there are multiple endings — one for the “demon” path and another for the “angel” path.

It’s a petty beefy update for $5.99, and even retroactively adds some new functionality to previous chapters. It’s well worth the money, and might even convert holdouts to the Bendy phenomenon.

About Bendy and the Ink Machine: BATIM is an indie survival horror game published by The Meatly Games. It’s released in an episodic format, with new chapters being released every few months. The story follows the protagonist named Henry as he wades through the mysteries of Joey Drew’s cartoon studios. The studio has been overrun by inky cartoon demons, including Bendy. The story unfolds slowly and requires a bit of detective work on the part of the player to piece together.
