    The Marvelous Captain (Captain Marvel)

    The Marvelous Captain (Captain Marvel)

    New Show. New Schedule. New naming scheme. Welcome to the first episode of Season 5 of Running on Rooftops! We are catching up to all* the Marvel and DC movies we missed since we last recorded, as well as review the newest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel. New Schedule Similar to our plans for last season, we are aiming for 2 episodes a month.  The goal is to release one movie-related episode a month. When we started Running on Rooftops in 2015, the landscape of comic book TV shows was quite different. Four years later, there's over 3 times the amount of shows available on multiple platforms, and it has gotten too difficult to keep up with everything. We still like podcasting and while there are too many shows, there relatively fewer movies.  By focusing on movie reviews, we can deliver more content with less stress. For the second episode of the month, anything goes! We looked back at all the different types of podcasts we've produced since 2015, and asked ourselves "What have we most enjoyed doing?"  With this in mind, we are going to try doing more sprints, reviews, interviews, and more. Movie Catch Up Want to hear our opinion on all the comic book movies that came out since Avengers: Infinity War? Too bad! We forgot about Deadpool 2! Phil and Darryl give their opinions on Ant-Man and the Wasp, Venom, Spider-Man: Enter the Spiderverse and Aquaman. Captain Marvel We welcome Captain Marvel to the MCU with a review of the Marvel's 21st new movie. How do we feel about the first Marvel movie of 2019? Does this movie party like it's 1995?

    Private Questions (Spoiler Free Jessica Jones Season 2 Review)

    Private Questions (Spoiler Free Jessica Jones Season 2 Review)

    Jessica Jones is back!  Darryl gives his spoiler-free thoughts on Jessica Jones Season 2. This season has a fairly slow beginning. Jessica is dealing with the aftermath of killing Killgrave, and it's known by the public that she's the one that's responsible for it. This is largely thanks to Trish, who is using her talk show to highlight powered heroes and starting to investigate the people who gave Jessica powers. Also investigating is Malcolm, who is now sober, and is working closely with Jessica and picking her up off the floor each morning. Hogarth has her own arc that runs parallel to main cast's this season. Killgrave leaves a large hole to fill in the cast. In the first season, when he wasn't on the screen, you would be asking "Where's Killgrave?" or "Is this person mind controlled"? It really picks up when the main antagonists are brought forward. Then the questions you ask are, "How did this person get to this point"? and "what does this mean for Jessica"? Some characters make really frustrating choices throughout this season. There where many times where I would say "Why would you do that?" or Why would you trust this person?" It shows how toxic some people can be. In addition, while there isn't any mind control, many of the villains are very emotionally manipulative. People try to get what they want by any means, and they are often very horrible to each other. They don't have to be mind controllers to be terrible people. One of the secondary antagonists ends up slightly more sympathetic than some of the main characters. Only slightly though. When it comes to the ending, you know nothing is going to end well for Jessica. How it all resolves is unexpected, but makes you really want a season 3. Overall, Jessica Jones Season 2 is a good follow up to the first season. I ultimately didn't love it as much as season 1, but it was more consistent than other Marvel Netflix seasons.
