Supergirl – Season 6 Episode 1

Supergirl

“Rebirth” Supergirl returns for its sixth and final season with a continuation of the Leviathan plot as well as Lex Luthor’s plan for domination. Similar to The Flash, the previous season of this show was forced to end prematurely due to COVID preventing the completion of filming. All things considered I felt that the unintended…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 9

Batwoman

“Rule #1” Batwoman introduces a new threat as the characters pick up the pieces from the apparent death of Kate Kane. There’s very much a transitional quality to this episode following the resolution of the Coryana plot along with the search for Kate Kane in the previous episode. Ultimately the search proved fruitless as Kate…

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier – Season 1 Episode 2

Falcon

“The Star Spangled Man” The Falcon and The Winter Soldier brings the two leads together on a mission as the new Captain America makes his debut. Introducing a new Captain America at the end of the previous episode was a cliffhanger I found underwhelming because it was delivered as a shock reveal that was somewhat…

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 4

Flash

“Central City Strong” The Flash focuses on rebuilding and refocusing after recent events have impacted everyone in uniquely significant ways. This being an action adventure driven superhero series means that by design it’s set up for the characters to deal with constant difficult situations. Every week there’s a problem to solve and every season there’s…

Superman & Lois – Season 1 Episode 5

Superman

“The Best of Smallville” Superman & Lois continues to deal with Jonathan’s ongoing discomfort around living in Smallville as the town readies itself for an annual celebration. Every review I write about this show highlights how impressed I am by the character work. It’s sophisticated, deliberate and endlessly compelling while also being a masterclass in…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 8

Batwoman

“Survived Much Worse” Batwoman has all its ongoing plots converge on Coryana as many of the major characters find themselves on the mysterious island in search of either Kate or the Desert Rose. The search for Kate Kane makes sense as a plot given the circumstances of her death/disappearance and her connection to the characters…

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier – Season 1 Episode 1

Falcon

“New World Order” The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues with its television offering with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. WandaVision was for the most part a great success. It was a subversive take on the MCU that provided a closer look at characters the films don’t have time to explore in detail due to focus…

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 3

Flash

“Mother” The Flash deals with Central City once again under siege as Eva accelerates her plan to take over the city by replacing everyone with mirror duplicates. It’s both worth and not worth noting that this should have been the sixth season finale. What makes it worth noting is that it feels like a season…

Superman & Lois – Season 1 Episode 4

Superman

“Haywire” Superman & Lois deals with the difficulties of juggling conflicting responsibilities as Morgan Edge becomes a more prominent threat. A common comment in my reviews of this show is that it’s impressive because it manages to spin so many plates without appearing to lose focus on any of the elements at play. This episode…

Black Lightning – Season 4 Episode 6

Black Lightning

“The Book of Ruin: Chapter Two: Theseus’s Ship” Black Lightning explores the fallout of Jennifer returning with a vastly different face as Tobias Whale progresses his slow burn plan. It’s an amazing coincidence that two comic book properties come out with a reference to the Ship of Theseus in close proximity to one another. Marvel’s…
