Review: 'Supergirl' Is Finally Here!

Download Review: 'Supergirl' Is Finally Here!

 'Supergirl' 1x01 'Pilot' Review

Flying quickly between tired, played-out superhero procedural, fresh new feministic jam, frantic frivolous cheese fest, and badass action drama, 'Supergirl' is uneven at best. It's not the comic book adaptation we necessarily want or need. We have so many to choose from these days... It may appear too heavy-handed at times. It seems that it's trying a bit too hard. But it's not terrible. It's not even always mediocre. We'll get into more of why we feel the way we do in our full episode... Weigh in and tell us what you think! Did you like the 'Supergirl' pilot?

So Laurel and Thea have gone all modern-day superhero Thelma and Louise on us, and have stolen Sarah's body from the cemetary. One short trip to Nanda Parbat later, and they're ready to start haggling with the new Ra's al Ghul over whether or not they're allowed to restore Sara's dead body in the Lazarus pit. Oh, also, they totally want to fix Thea's burgeoning bloodlust. Speaking of restoration, Felicity has decided she's had enough of Oliver and Diggle acting like a couple of children. So time to restore that relationship! Also, Double Down and Damien Darhk! Yay alliterative villain names

 'The Flash' 2x01 - 'The Man Who Saved Central City' Review

 It's been six months since the Flash saved Central City from a massive singularity, and as the city prepares to embrace their hero with Flash Day, Barry finds himself shutting himself off from his friends and family. Harrison Wells has left STAR Labs to him under the stipulation that he watch a video -- Wells' last will and testament -- but Barry is afraid of its contents. Meanwhile, Caitlin has begun working under Dr. Tina McGee at Mercury Labs, Cisco is working for Joe under the new metahuman task force, and Iris has become convinced that they must force Barry into accepting the team's help. With a new metahuman from Earth-2 coming to kill The Flash at the behest of the mysterious Zoom, Barry will need all the help he can get!

WARNING: SPOILERS/NSFW 'Arrow' 4x04 - 'Green Arrow' Review This episode we talk the first episode of 'Arrow' season 4, "Green Arrow"! Oliver and Felicity are called back to the newly renamed Star City when Damien Darhk and his army of ghosts begin an endless crime wave on the city with the hopes of destroying it! With Damien displaying healthy doses of candor, ill-will, and magic, Oliver finds himself at odds with everyone on his old team. From Diggle's inability to forgive him for his actions with the League of Assassins, to Speedy's increasingly violent behavior, things are going to be especially rocky for Team Arrow this year -- especially given that last scene in the grave yard! WTF!?

'The Flash' (1990) Complete Series Review: Should It Become CW Canon?

Download 'The Flash' (1990) Complete Series Review: Should It Become CW Canon?

From 1990 to 1991, John Wesley Shipp portrayed Barry Allen, a.k.a. the Flash on a television series that lasted just one season. How does it stack up as a series today? How does it stack up to its contemporaries? Should it be included in the newly emerging multiverse that CW's 'The Flash' is constructing? With Amanda Pays (Dr. Tina McGee), Vito D'Ambrosio (Anthony Bellows), and Mark Hamill (The Trickster) all reprising their roles from the classic series and John Wesley Shipp portraying a particularly (at times) cagey Henry Allen, we wonder... From Nick Pike's poor man's Kurt Russell to the questionable hair growth of Barry Allen's clone Pollux, we're talking the 90's Flash series!

'Vixen' Season 1 Review: Was It Worth The Wait?

Download 'Vixen' Season 1 Review: Was It Worth The Wait?

So we watched 'Vixen', CW Seed's exclusive web series 'Vixen'.  Compelling female superhero origin? Check. Crossover with well-known established 'Arrow' and 'The Flash' universe characters? Check. Introduction to magic in said universe? Check.  But what of execution?  Did Arrow and Flash come off correctly (even with Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin providing voice work)?  Was there enough meat and potatoes in the six five-minute episodes to make it truly satisfying, or was this just an awkward first look at what could become a truly cool character within the mythos of the CW 'verse?

Download 'Gotham' 2x02 - "Knock Knock" Review

'Gotham' 2x02 - "Knock Knock" is reviewed.  Jerome, with the Maniax, has begun a blood curdling journey of murder and mutilation! But it's a new day in Gotham City according to newly promoted Comissioner Sarah Essen.  With the Maniax fighting for control of the gang, Bruce firing Alfred for smashing his father's computer, and Jim being lured away from police headquarters by his nutjob ex Barbara, "Knock Knock" seems to be at a level of cartoon that we simply could not have anticipated... but is that a good thing?
