Netflix’s Stranger Things took the world by storm with its canny and effective use of 1980s nostalgia and a story that was more binge-worthy than anyone expected.

Arrow’s Return Brings With It a Big Old Problem For Oliver Queen

When we left Oliver Queen at the end of Arrow’s fifth season, he was standing over the smoking ruins of pretty much everything the show had built up over its first five years. Last night’s premiere mostly dealt with the fallout of said explosiveness, but, because this is Arrow, it also threw a familiar giant wrench into Ollie’s life. Read More >>

There’s Never Going to Be a ‘Right Time’ for The Punisher TV Series

Netflix and Marvel made the right decision a few weeks ago when the companies decided to cancel The Punisher panel at New York Comic Con in the wake of the October 1 shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and 489 others wounded. The timing would have been beyond offensive, which raises the question: When can they release their show about a superhero who shoots people? Read More >>

The Roku Streaming Stick+ Is Too Good to Be This Small and Cheap

It feels like we’re leaving the world of set-top boxes as we know them behind. For one, few people own a TV big enough that you could actually put a box on top of it—that’s been true for a long time. The box itself has also dwindled down to a dongle, a handy little thing that disappears behind the screen.

The Roku Streaming Stick+, with its ability to handle 4K and HDR, changes all that. Read More >>
