++ With the news about the possibility of a Black Widow movie (which I'll believe it when I see it, since Marvel has constantly flip-flopped on this for years now), I've been thinking about other ways that her story could be told. Instead of a film, I would much prefer a television series based on a young Natasha and her training in the Black Widow program. Her backstory is fascinating in itself, and I think a show would be more suitable for focusing and exploring those elements of her story than a feature film. Then again, I've always believed that certain stories are much better fitted for television anyway since film can be quite limiting. Plus, it would give us a chance to see someone else take on the character of Natasha Romanova, especially a young Natasha.

++ Agents of SHIELD is considered to be the highest top-rated Marvel show on Rotten Tomatoes to date, followed closely by Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Seeing it has five seasons so far and has continued to just get better and stronger as it goes on, that very impressive. Well-deserved, imho.

++ There is going to be a new Freeform show called Siren that I am intrigued by. I am fascinated with mermaids along with other mythological creatures, and anything that explores the darker side of mermaid lore is something right up my alley. In general, I like things that challenge the way society and mainstream media has altered to be innocent when in actuality they are darker and much more frightening, particularly if it includes body horror. Mermaids, angels, fairies, most fairytale stories, etc. Granted, I know this series will most likely not be the thriller that I probably want it to be, but I'm intrigued by the concept nonetheless.

++ I had just heard about the whole Heathers television show remake, and now Charmed is officially getting a reboot on the CW, both which are completely unnecessary. Look, this has obviously been mentioned before plenty of times by myself and others, but to reiterate: I'm just so tired of all these reboots/remakes/revivals. True, some of them can be rather decent and even prove themselves to work really well, but those are really rare and let's be honest most of the time all these remakes/revivals are nothing more than just unimaginative money-grabbers that add nothing new. Every single time I hear news about a previous show possibly getting a revival or a reboot made, I inwardly cringe. Not everything needs to be revived, not everything needs to have a remake. Just because it is the current trend right now doesn't mean everyone needs to follow it.
