My Media Diet
A selection of media (TV, movies, books, music) I’ve been digging lately.
  • The Punisher (TV, Netflix)
    Jon Bernthal is perfect as The Punisher.  Loved every episode.
  • The Gifted (TV, Fox)
    Between this and Legion, Fox is killing it with X-Men TV shows. The Gifted captures much of the X-Men ethos: young outcasts coming to grips with their new powers better than any of the movies.
  • Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD (TV, ABC)
    This season has me hooked again. Things went off the rails a few seasons ago, but this season is one of the best.
  • Mr. Robot: Season Three (TV, USA)
    Another redemption season after a weaker season two. Strong from start to finish.
  • Sons of Anarchy (TV, streaming)
    Finally watched the last season of Sons of Anarchy. Probably its most violent, definitely not its best set of episodes, but I am glad I
  • Hurry Slowly (podcast)
    A podcast about how you can be more productive, creative, and resilient through the simple act of slowing down.
  • Doomsday Clock (comic book)
    A sequel to Watchmen, one of the greatest graphic novels ever!
  • Batman: White Knight (comic book)
    Sean Gordon Murphy art and writing. Need I say more?
  • Mister Miracle (comic book)
    The super duo of Tom King and Mitch Gerads knock this book out of the park. Yes, a Marvel guy just recommended three DC books.
  • Wonder (movie)
    Took Zoey and Stella to see Wonder and wept like a little baby. Someday, when they are parents, they’ll stop making fun of me for it.
  • Black Panther (movie)
    So good. Saw it twice! My favorite Marvel movie, no doubt.
  • Atlanta (TV, FX)
    Donald Glover’s (aka Childish Gambino) creation is equal parts funny, well done social commentary, trippy, weird, and full of very likeable characters. Amazing. Highly recommended.
