Relive the Adventure at Home with Solo: A Star Wars Story

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with a review copy of Solo: A Star Wars Story in exchange for a review. All thoughts, words, and credits lost on Sabacc are our own.

When it was announced that Disney was going to release a Star Wars movie every year, the ideas of movies that would come out felt endless. As fans of the Star Wars movies, we all have ideas of what movies we would like to see or what characters we want explored on the big screen, but with the vast amounts of characters it will be hard to please all of the fans wanting to see their idea of Star Wars on the big screen.

The Gifted Season 1 Home Release

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided an advance copy of The Gifted to promote the home release. All thought, opinions and mutant powers are our own. 

With the few shows on television that continue the story of mutants or Inhumans, The Gifted is a little ahead of the pack by combining some great actions sequences while telling a powerful tale of family. Where Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Legion fall short, The Gifted shows a strong promise to be one of the must-watch shows of the expanded Marvel Universe.

The First Purge arrives on Digital Download

Disclaimer: Our friends at Allied Chicago are providing the Fandads with giveaway copies of The First Purge in exchange for promotion of the home release of the movie. 

It seems that every new Purge movie that comes out keeps getting more and more intense. I mean, just the thought that people can literally do anything they want for one night it not only scary but also insane. I do not know what I would do in this situation. I know I will do all I can to protect my family, but it is just strange thinking that something like this could ever happen in today's society. Coming out today on Digital Download is the fourth entry in the Purge series: The First Purge.

Season One of Succession now available on Digital Download

Disclaimer: The Fandads were given a digital copy of the HBO's Succession to promote the Digital Download release. All thoughts, opinions, and sleepless nights are our own.

Out now on Digital Download is the insane HBO show, Succession. While I have not finished this show I try to sneak in an episode or two at night when everyone is asleep. The only drawback to that is that I end up falling asleep too. Now that it is out on Digital Download, I can catch up with the series on the train ride to work. Have you seen this show yet? Read the official synopsis after the break.

Silicon Valley Season 5 now available on DVD #giveaway

Disclaimer: The Fandads are promoting the release of Season 5 of Silicon Valley in exchange for a giveaway promotion to our readers. All thoughts, opinions, and computer issues are our own. 

You might need to refresh your page if the image above does not load properly.

Just released yesterday on DVD is season 5 of Silicon Valley and what can we say again about this show that we have not said before? It's such a fun show and a pretty fun way to see what might actually happen in the tech world. Ok, maybe not everything happens like it does on the show, but it would be pretty cool if it did. This show is a favorite of mine and I can not wait until the next season comes out.

The Beginning of a New Routine

Friends, it's that time of year again, the first day of school. This year is a little bittersweet, not only for my wife and I but for many other parents that have their last child starting kindergarten. My son is going to start school this year and I know two days that are going to be somewhat depressing in our household: Mondays and Fridays.

Yes, friends, the Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit will be available on September 14th!
