++ We finally have the much awaited official teaser for the fourth season of The Expanse, which will be premiering December 13th on Amazon Prime. I'm excited, for the fact that the show is returning on a new home and will hopefully remain there for a good long while, and also just to see the story unfold and continue on. This show is just so amazing and awesome, some of the best scifi I've seen in a long time, and I cannot wait to see what happens next. For anyone who is curious about the show, the first three seasons are available on Amazon so you can get caught up before the fourth season premieres.
++ There was a sneak peek trailer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, which includes a little bit of behind-the-scenes of what they did to make it which absolutely looks stunning. I mentioned this before, but I like how there is this equilibrium of using practical effects and special effects, and actually getting to see that here is remarkable. Seeing the puppetry, the built sets, and seeing how they incorporated the special effects to scenes that enhances the experience, it works so well because it's a combination of things that are needed. Everything I've been seeing in regards to Age of Resistance has me very impressed, from how it looks to how it'll be expanding the universe and world, and I'm really hoping that it delivers.
++ As for the MCU, I don't really have much to say about the Phase Four of films coming out. I've never been huge on the MCU anyway, so. I will say, though, that the only film that looks remotely interesting to me is Shang-Chi, because having an Asian-led MCU film, one of the first Asian-led superhero movie? With an Asian-American director and writer? Yes please. Also, hearing how Simu Liu basically championed for more racial diversity in the MCU, especially in regards to Asian-American representation, and that somehow got him the role makes it even better. So yeah, that's basically the only thing I am looking forward to, to be honest.
++ The trailer for the third season of Dear White People was released, which I was wondering when we were going to get it. I'm hoping that it doesn't end up getting cancelled (since that's what Netflix does a lot now after three seasons), or that the show has a nice conclusion regardless.
++ Doom Patrol was renewed for a second season! I was so happy hearing this news, since after the unfortunate circumstances surrounding Swamp Thing and hearing certain things about how DC/Warner Bros were handling things I thought that it wasn't going to get another season. The show has gotten a lot of positive reviews and reactions from people, it is considered one of the better DC shows because it is so different, so unique and fresh, which based on what I've seen it is absolutely true, so seeing it renewed makes me happy to see it continue to thrive.
++ While not revealed at SDCC necessarily, finding out that Katee Sackhoff is going to be in another science fiction series called Another Life on Netflix has me incredibly intrigued. I would've checked this out simply for her alone, but based on the trailer it actually looks quite interesting.
++ And lastly, of course I have to mention Critical Role. Some of the cast appeared to do a live reading for The Adventure Zone comics with the McElroys and Lin Manuel Miranda. I know many, including the cast, want to have these people guest on their show at some point in any capacity. I mean, Matt already has had quite a few amazing people guest, including doing a one-on-one session with Stephen Colbert. So this might be a possibility, whether a guest in the second campaign or doing voices for their animated series. The cast was also there for their Talks Machina panel, and also to promote the upcoming next issue of the Vox Machina: Origins comics.
Was there anything at SDCC this year that was announced or happened that made you excited?
