Before you go indulging your taste for all things stranger and sweet, here are a few upcoming horror/sci-fi streaming series, which may or may not give you cavities…

Stranger Things 3

STRANGER THINGS 3 (July 4, 2019/Netflix™)
Titles for the new episodes include: “Suzie, Do You Copy?, “The Mall Rats,” “The Case of the Missing Lifeguard,” “The Sauna Test,” “The Source,” “The Birthday,” “The Bite” and “The Battle of Starcourt.”

That’s all they’re giving us for now. Fine by me — the Stranger Things series is so addictively bingeful, it should be classified as some sort of visual drug, like porno. Except instead of Jennifer Lawrence’s Photoshopped naked/nude body wrapped around mine, you get the Demogorgon, which may or may not know who Jennifer Lawrence is. Or me.

Kingdom

KINGDOM (January 26, 2019/Netflix™)
In a kingdom defeated by corruption and famine, a mysterious plague spreads to turn the infected into monsters. The crown prince, framed for treason and desperate to save his people, sets out on a journey to unveil what evil lurks in the dark.

Looking forward to this South Korean period piece zombie apocalypse chewfest. And hey, it’s gonna be a series, which means more couch time for this professional squatter.

The Punisher

THE PUNISHER (2019/Netflix™)
“After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.”

If you saw Season One of Netflix’s The Punisher, it certainly lived up to its name — each show contained some of the most face-pinchingly brutal fight scenes this side of Daredevil ever filmed for enjoyment purposes. And Jon Bernthal, who played the loose cannon Shane on The Walking Dead, is the perfect choice to deliver the business end of his pummel-happy fists. I am so happy right now.

Swamp Thing

SWAMP THING (2019/DC Universe)
Abby Arcane, an employee at Atlanta’s Center for Disease Control, investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets.”

A new series set to stream on DC Universe. As much as Swamp Thing is cool, it remains to be seen if he’s $7.99 a month cool.

R.I.P. Adam West — The True Batman

Adm West / Batman

Adam West, to very many of us, was THE true Batman. Without his portrayal of Batman in my life (no joke here), I would’ve turned out to be a directionless stink hippie. After watching him punch the question mark off The Riddler’s cackling lips, I knew instantly I wanted to be that guy who keeps cackling criminals off everybody’s front yard. Still working on that. Still not a stink hippie, though!

Sure, I watched Superman on TV, also great. But they gave him too many powers. (Heat from your eyeballs? Gimme a break.) Batman earned his high ranking and respected superhero status through brutal hard work, unswerving dedication, a few science-y things, the coolest car in the world and punching the stuffing out of those who would mock our laws. And he did it without setting fire to anyone’s face with his eyeballs.

There will never be a way to fully explain how much Adam West’s Batman meant — and continues to be — to me, and countless others.

Huge props to Ben Affleck who, unfortunately has taken a lot of flack for his unarguably amazing portrayal of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the new DC Universe, had this incredibly classy thing to say on social media about Adam West’s untimely passing…

Adam West exemplified heroism. Kind, funny and an all around great guy. Thank you for showing us all how it’s done.”
