Earlier today the official trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was released by Netflix. I watched it and was hit by one of the largest waves of nostalgia I’ve ever experienced. Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself and tell me how you feel.

I grew up watching episodes of Full House, but aside from having a mild crush on Uncle Jesse, I don’t remember much of the series itself. What happened to Danny’s wife? Exactly how long the show was on? I recall that later I found out that the guy who played Steve, also did the voice of Aladdin. And that somehow Ted Mosby grows up to be Danny Tanner (which is a surprisingly accurate connection I hadn’t thought about until this moment). Even though I didn’t remember any exact story lines, I did remember that it made me laugh and it made me happy to watch, so when Netflix said they were doing a reboot (for lack of a better word) I was skeptical. It seems that a lot of shows and networks are hitting us Millennials hard in the nostalgia bone lately, and it is WORKING.
“Be careful of the Murdock boys… They got the devil in ’em.”
At NYCC this week, they released the first trailer for Daredevil season 2.
Honestly there is a LOT about this season that I’m excited for. I’m stoked to see the potential cross over with Jessica Jones. This show has been easily one of my favorite shows to watch (and rewatch) since it came out in April.
The cast is phenomenal and is only getting better. With the additions of Jon Bernthal as The Punisher and Elodie Yung as Elektra, the new season is destined to be amazing.
Jessica Jones: Season 1
“It’s time the world knew her name.”
I have been anxiously waiting for this series since I finished my Daredevil initial watch through. I’m excited for this edgier side of Marvel, and I’m STOKED for Krysten Ritter to play Jessica Jones. The addition of all of these characters to the Netflix Marvel Universe keeps getting me more and more excited.
Its the same reason I love the DC shows on CW so much. I love to see the characters cross over and interact with one another. This is no different. It’s already confirmed that Rosario Dawson will make an appearance on Jessica Jones, now I’m just hoping to see if Foggy can control his sarcastic tone if he were to meet her. Of course, ultimately I’d love to see Matt and Jessica exchange tips on catching the bad guy, but I feel that that won’t happen for a while.
Are you getting excited for Jessica Jones and Daredevil? What are your thoughts on the casting and character choices?
