SUPERGIRL: BIZARRO RECAP

  

Would a, could a and should a. That was exactly how I looked at Monday night’s episode of Supergirl that featured the appearance of Bizarro. While that part of the story was spot on and fun to watch, the other aspects of the episode left a lot to be desired. Warning, spoilers ahead…

DC'S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: PREMIERE PART 2 RECAP




One of the things I loved about the old Buffy and Angel series is the unexpected turn when it came to characters you started to care about. Who they were and what their back story was? Such was the case with Thursday night’s part two of the pilot episode. Warning, spoilers ahead…

THE FLASH: THE REVERSE-FLASH RETURNS RECAP


Last Tuesday night was the winter premiere of The Flash and for a premiere, it was a bit disappointing. So much so, I held back writing about it because the ending with the Reverse Flash appearing out of nowhere made me pause till this Tuesday night’s episode to see how it will all unfold. The problem with last week’s show was that it focused way too much on the love story between Barry and Detective Patty Spivot. Not that I’m against Barry being happy or that Patty isn’t worth fighting for but everything felt very forced and with a lackluster baddie in the Turtle, the episode was an overall disappointment. True to form though Tuesday night’s family centric episode was a homerun. Warning, spoilers ahead…

DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: SERIES PREMIERE RECAP



What happens when you mix Doctor Who with some of DC’s more colorful heroes and villains? You get Legends of Tomorrow. The CW unveiled its latest DC Comics inspired show Thursday night with a much different premise than Arrow and The Flash. Legends is far more sci-fi than the shows that have preceded it. Warning, spoilers ahead…

THE DAWN OF THE JUSTICE LEAGUE CW SPECIAL



Tuesday night’s special Dawn of the Justice League hosted by Kevin Smith and Geoff Johns gave us a glimpse into the DC Cinematic Universe. Yes, I said DC Cinematic Universe. This is something most comic book fans thought they would never see due to Warner Brother’s lack of vision in creating one in the past. To be fair, the TV universe is a homerun led by Arrow and The Flash. It has continued with both Gotham and Supergirl. Now, the focus is set on bringing some of the industries greatest heroes to life on the big screen. It all starts in March with the highly anticipated Batman V Superman starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. It is a sequel of sorts to Man of Steel but I like to look at it as a launching point for the future of DC.

SUPERGIRL: CHILDISH THINGS RECAP



Now that’s what I’m talking about. Two weeks ago Supergirl returned from its winter hiatus with its weakest episode to date. Yes, the episode titled “Blood Bonds” did a lot to further the family dynamic between Kara and her Aunt Astra. Astra showed compassion in talking down her husband Non and his group of Supermen from defeating Kara and members of the DEO which included Alex and Hank. So much buildup with the Winter Finale and it fizzled in its return. And don’t get me started with the whole Cat Grant discovering Kara’s true identity during that finale, just to have it reversed albeit cleverly using the powers of the Martian Manhunter. This leads me to Monday night’s episode “Childish Things”. Warning, spoilers ahead…
