2019: May 31st Dark Season 2 Trilogy Trailer
Just under a month until the second season of Netflix's Dark drops and they reveal it's going to be a finite story done in three seasons? I really couldn't think of better news for this show. Dark already feels extremely symmetrical, so it's awesome to hear that symmetry goes all the way through into its DNA. And why do I get the feeling that the 'Everything is connected' line is going to be especially true for Dark? Can't wait!
Tough decision for this evening: Godzilla: King of Monsters, Swamp Thing or the Deadwood movie? All three premiere today; the very definition of First World problems.
Whatever our decision, in preparation, I signed up for my 7-Day Free Trial of the DCU app through Firestick last night. Really had to fight the urge to start Doom Patrol, but that has to wait a little bit; we still have two episodes of Ozark left to watch. The general plan is binge Doom Patrol and keep the subscription for the duration of Swamp Thing. Also, I noticed the 2015 Constantine show is on there; not a perfect adaptation of the character storywise - as I remember the episodes range from fantastic to terrible - but Matt Smith is perfect casting as John Constantine, and from the few episodes I did watch back when it aired, there were some gems. So while we have the DCU, might as well take advantage and re-watch and finally finish that series as well.

Old paradigms dissolve, new ideas shape the future. My Beta Reader is all but finished with Shadow Play. The art's done (I'll reveal it here soon); all I need to do is one last concentrated read through and it's go time!
