As summer winds down and we enter fall, the entertainment landscape shifts. Streaming and broadcast TV shows debut or return. Superhero summer fare gives way to Oscar award-season fodder and holiday blockbusters. Comics books and anime continue to be great.

Netflix has its own Game of Thrones coming in the form of The Witcher. We’ve got a hybrid superhero / award bait movie with Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. A trilogy of Star Wars trilogies is ending with The Rise of Skywalker.
