For the last couple of years I’ve sat down and cobbled together a complete rundown of the annual marathon of episodes of “The Honeymooners” that is presented to us over on PIX11. In 2020 it was super important to keep people indoors for safety’s sake and now with the terrible surge in cases of this Omicron variant I think that this might be the best course of action for 2021’s New Year’s Eve as well. At the risk of repeating myself I will say that this classic comedy is the perfect way to both close out and open up a hopefully promising New Year of 2022. The continuation of the pandemic has divided a lot of us based on who has received the full vaccine dosage and those who refute its effectiveness and to be honest the fights about this are far too nasty to line out in this humble narrative. The editorial High Command of “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” have taken all three of the shots and we did Pfizer and are happy to have done so. End of soapboxing. If you have the space on your DVR you should start programming them now so you are able to switch channels to the favored network to watch the ball drop before you return to the fun of “The Honeymooners”. I programmed this last year for myself even though I own the DVD of the classic episodes. As in the past marathons, some of the funniest and best of the episodes will be aired so head over to WPIX 11 and spend some time in Brooklyn with Ralph Kramden, Ed Norton, Alice Kramden and Trixie Norton and just relax. The shows begin at 11PM and run continuously into the next day with a brief pause for other programming at 8AM until it picks up again at 11AM. Let’s take a look.

The continuation of a series years after what we last remember the characters being a part of isn’t all that new an idea anymore and if its done properly it can be quite enjoyable. For instance, the “Star Trek” franchise fanatics saw this with “Picard” and that’s actually getting a second season in the coming months as well but back to the subject at hand which is the hit streaming show “Cobra Kai” which brings us back to the world of “The Karate Kid” movies. The series was originally a part of the programming of the YouTube Red streaming service who ran the first two seasons before dropping it. Netflix picked it up and continued the story with Season 3 and here we are with the trailer for its fourth season. I loved these movies but didn’t manage to see the first two seasons yet. This isn’t going to stop me from sharing the new trailer for the show along with some premise and the casting that I listed in a different post about the show. Enjoy.
We were regular viewers of the Showtime Original drama series “Ray Donovan” and were quite dismayed after the 7th season finale when the news that the series would not be renewed was announced. While not looking to spoil anything for those who are using the pandemic time to catch up on all sorts of programming, I can safely say that it ended with a few different cliffhanger moments. Fortunately, Showtime decided to wrap it all up with a feature film that will air in January and since both the teaser and official trailer were released today I am placing them in the same post. I’ve also included some light premise and casting for your consumption. Enjoy.

Nowadays it seems as though every big franchise is getting some kind of prequel so why shold anything be different for one of the most popular characters in the Disney/Pixar family, the legendary Buzz Lightyear from the hit films “Toy Story”. They’ve just release the first teaser trailer and offered up some other coolness which I am sharing with you down below.
