So far, Marvel's Cinematic Universe (MCU) seems to be getting better, as they have been taking ideas that seem weak like Ant-Man or Black Panther and milking billions out of them.

Animated television shows for an adult audience have really grown up since the days of The Flintstones premiered on prime time in 1960.

Okay, I have had a great time reviewing the TiVo Bolt, and now there is a TiVo Bolt +, or Plus. It has six tuners (the ability to record six shows at once) and three terabytes of recording capacity (up to 450 hours).
